Crying at Queer Eye, listening to Still Me and singing along to Haim, (not simultaneously) #LittleLoves

I’ve had a busy working week juggling blogging and setting up a new venture which is nearly ready to be properly revealed on here. Despite collapsing on the sofa each evening when the girls are asleep… and then falling asleep myself! There’s been a few lovely moments with my daughters, from dancing in the kitchen to Michael Jackon while waiting for our biscuits to bake, to singing loudly along to the radio in the car on our many trips to evening clubs and practices. These are the little moments I’ll store up and remember for sure.

So, here we go lets get onto those wonderful little things from this week, grab a cuppa (or a glass, depending on the time of day..!) and have a read.

 

 

  read 

The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock

I must confess I’ve barely read the first chapter of this. It’s been one of those weeks where I’ve run ragged and collapsed in front of the TV rather than reaching for a book. 

Blogs and articles

Dear Social Life, it’s not you, it’s me – Kerry Villers

You know when you read a post you can completely identify with (and wish you’d written!) this is one of those. Having a social life seems such a difficult task when you’re in your thirties with kids. There are times when I’m more than happy to curl up with a book all cosy in my dressing gown in the evenings, but then at times I do miss the spontaneity of being able to go out to a gig or club last minute as I would have done pre-kids. I think I need to embrace my season of dullness and enjoy my nights in, after all it won’t last forever…. will it?

Mindful Habits for Your Home – A Considered Life 

I love posts like this that talk you through ways to be more mindful and create a more minimal and functional feel to your home. I just wish my family read them and took it all on board too!!

 

watched

Queer Eye

I honestly cannot tell you just how much I enjoyed this series. I binged the lot in days and was left feeling bereft. Did you watch the orginal Queer Eye for a Straight Guy that was on years ago? I did, and I loved that one. This re-boot however is a million times better. It has a similar premise, five gay guys ‘make over’ a man that has been nominated. What I love most about this one is there’s no snarkiness, judging or stereotypes, it’s all about investing in people and showing them they are worth it. I cried so much at the transformations and connections. Not the physical changes but the way in which the guys’ self belief and understanding of who they are developed. A must watch!

Also, to lower the tone slightly, how hot is Antoni (the one in the middle), he’s got a young John Mayer vibe going on. As you were.

Now available on Netflix

 

Unreal

Now for something completely different and definitely not uplifting! The ugly side of reality television is magnified in the drama Unreal. No boundaries or integrity here, that’s for sure! We see behind the scenes of a fictional ‘Bachelor’ style show and the production that goes into it. It’s such a good watch though, and you will be sucked in. Season three is now on Amazon Prime and being released an episode a week. The first two seasons are on there too.

 

 

MAde

We braved the bitterly cold wind on Saturday and had our family photoshoot with Robyn. I have never been to cold! Luckily the sun was out so in the photos you can’t even tell just how cold it was. Here’s a little peek –

I won’t be sharing many from it on here as I try and keep my family off the internet.

I also made the time to have some phone catch ups with some of my best (but far away) friends. I’m not a fan of talking on the phone and rarely do it. You’ve got to be a very close friend or family member to get me to pick up the phone, ha! It felt so good to check in with them and have a catch up as well as talk rubbish to each other. I might not get to see these friends that often but I do love spending time together, even if it’s just over the phone.

 

Last Friday night I got my hair cut into a long bob. It feels so much better than my long hair and much easier to manage. So yes, you could say I’m ‘wearing’ my new hair style.

 

I also treated myself to a little Primark haul* and bought this tshirt, black culottes and a blazer.

(*urgh, I actually hate myself a little for using that word)

 

heard

Music

George Ezra

 We love George Ezra and always turn up the radio whenever he’s on. This new song of his is so good!


 

Haim

Speaking of singing along, another sure fire hit in our household is Haim

 

 

Podcasts and Audiobooks

I’ve finished Still Me by Jo Jo Moyes and I’m bereft. I think I might end up buying the physical book and read it for myself at some point. I enjoyed being able to ‘read’ a book while out and about but I don’t think I’ll be replacing my books for the audio version any time soon.

 

and lastly

 

We’ve got a family weekend ahead (and a rare date night!) before a couple more days of school and then the Easter Hols. The countdown is officially on!

 

Have a fantastic weekend!

    Love your hair, the length really suits you! I have side fringe envy as well! Mine never looks like that! Can’t wait to hear all about your new working venture! So exciting! Have a wonderful weekend! {so sorry I didn’t link up last week!}

    Love that top need a shopping haul myself when baby comes out. hahaha I have stretched everything out this time. Big time. I tried an audiobook this morning feels weird to be read to if I am honest. I might need to focus on podcasts for a bit. lol 🙂 Love the hair you look amazing whatever you do with it. Love that tshirt too maybe I will buy it for motivation weight loss after baby. New working venture I wish you all the luck in the world. I love consulting more than the sponsored stuff and it’s more rewarding knowing you are helping business thrive on social media. I have one next week I am pumped up for. There is so much out there for consulting too you will be AMAZING at it and people will be knocking your door down hiring you for it too. Go get them girl!!!!!

  • Stacey- A Mums Blind Love - March 23, 2018 reply

    I love the cover of that book and that top. I picked it up and put it down again so many times during a recent trip to primark. Your new hair cut looks fab.

  • mummymatters - March 24, 2018 reply

    I am trying to get into audio books but I do find my mind wandering a little, definitely still a physical book reader here. I love your family photo, it’s so natural and beautiful xx

  • Laura@dearbearandbean - March 24, 2018 reply

    I love your hair! I can’t get into audio books, I find it strange being read to and my mind wanders. I’m off to read Kerry’s post, this sounds like I will agree to x

  • mumreinvented - March 24, 2018 reply

  • Emma - March 25, 2018 reply

    I keep reading great things about Queer Eye but I’m such a softie and avoid anything I think might make me cry these days, even if it’s happy tears. Grey’s fills my tears quota!

  • welliesontheschoolrun - March 29, 2018 reply

    Your hair looks fab Morgana! I really need to read Still Me, I loved the other books so much xx

  • lifeasourlittlefamily - March 29, 2018 reply
