This has been the first week back to school, nursery and work for us. I must admit it’s been great to get back into the swing of things. I’ve been neglecting the blog and business and had so much to catch up on. Despite N’s tempter rearing it’s head again *groan* we have had a great week all in all. So here we go…
Welcome to this weeks Little Loves post!
I read #GirlBoss last summer on holiday while I was still working on my business plan for Little and Fierce and waiting for funding. It was such a fun and easy read that I decided to pick it up again and read it now that I’ve being running my business for a few months.
This particular paragraph really resonated with me and it’s something that’s at the core of Little and Fierce for me as a brand.
Honestly I could fit absolutely loads into this category this week, so bear with me I’ll try not to ramble!
After being recommended it by friends I’ve started watching The Good Wife, and I am absolutely hooked. It’s a programme I’ve been aware of for a while but missed out on it when it started on TV. Now we’ve got Netflix I’ve got the chance to start from the beginning, much better than jumping in half way through. The mister and I are still very much enjoying Sons of Anarchy too.
We had a crazy busy day on Saturday, first we headed up to the Lake District for our friends daughters’ baptism. It was a lovely afternoon – if a little cold!! It was lovely seeing the girls their make a commitment to God, especially when it was in such cold water, haha!
This photo got a lot of laughs when I shared it on Instagram – wine out of Disney Princess cups – so rock and roll 😉
After the bbq we jumped in the car and headed home ready to drop the girls at a sleepover, get changed in record time and head to Manchester for the Urban Hero Awards. This is an event that we’ve been going to for a few years now and I always head home feeling truly humbled and inspired. The awards are run by a charity called The Message and they recognise people that have turned their lives around.
If you head on over to The Message Trust’s youtube channel you can find out more.
The Urban Hero Awards is a black tie event so it’s always a bit of a worry when it comes to finding something to wear. I’d bought this dress a few months ago from ASOS and it was a perfect fit. I didn’t take any photos of myself wearing it so you’ll just have to make do with this one from ASOS – which incidentally looks just like me… *cough*
The girls have been enjoying the warm, light evenings playing in the garden, E even convinced me to get the paddling pool out! As a result they’ve worn their swimming costumes a lot this week!

The girls are STILL obsessed with Into the Woods, so that soundtrack has been on a lot.
As usual BANKS has been my music of choice while working this week, but I heard this song on the radio the other day and as a result I’ve been enjoyed their album on Spotify. I think we can expect big things from them.
Over the Christmas period I painted our pine topped dining table with chalkboard paint and we had great fun with it. Then I got my hands on the much loved Violet and Percy spotty table cloth and it’s been covered up ever since. Wanting some new backgrounds for Little and Fierce product shots I put away the tablecloth and invested in some bright chalk pens. The girls LOVE playing on it and have been doodling all week.
I’m off to London today with Jenny and will be heading out for dinner with Lucy and Katie. We haven’t met up since Center Parcs so it will be so lovely to catch up. We’re then going on to Blogtacular on the Saturday, are any of you going? It looks like it’s going to be a fantastic event.
I have a giveaway running at the moment to win a £50 voucher for my store Little and Fierce, make sure you head on over to this post – Kitting the kids out for summer with Little & Fierce- to be in with a chance of winning (there’s also a 15% discount code for all my readers!)
