Monthly Bucket List | February

Monthly Bucket List | February

Writing January’s Bucket List post seemed to have a lot more content, however drafting February’s has shown I need to step up my game a little bit!! I wrote a list of 2015 Goals for the year, which I am using as my master list for my bucket list this year. I’ve tried to pick things that are on the whole – fun, but some that give me a little…

Inkly Cards Review

Inkly Cards Review

To any readers who have been here more than once or twice, it has likely been mentioned before that I adore stationery. Having the opportunity to review new stationery products and services as part of being a blogger is literally a thrill for me. When Inkly Cards contacted me to review their app, I was intrigued. There are many sites out there you can personalise and order cards from, but with…

The Tea and Cake | Edition No. 8

The Tea and Cake | Edition No. 8

What a lovely week. Nothing monumental, just nice family time, a few treats and a much sweeter boy. Just one of those weeks that makes you smile on reflection. So here we are on another Friday, it’s nearly March and I can’t quite believe how fast the days are passing. There is something so hopeful about a Friday. The bliss at being on the verge of the weekend and the…

It’s Not Always Bad…

It’s Not Always Bad…

I thought to myself recently that any new readers might pop by my blog, read some of my recent posts (like “Before You Post” and “Loving My Life“) and wonder if the blogging world might not be a very nice place to be. This is not the case. I think a lot of us start blogging, get surrounded by so many like-minded others and feel like we’ve reached the mecca…

My Captured Moment #8 | Our First Picture

My Captured Moment #8 | Our First Picture

There aren’t many nice pics of H and I straight after he was born. The ones directly after, are not for public viewing ever, if my cloud gets hacked – no one will be sharing those bad boys. But in all honesty, I didn’t really want my picture taken. I was cream crackered, hair out of control etc etc But this was a picture the hub snapped when H was…

February 15 | Papery Peep

February 15 | Papery Peep

I love looking back over the month and seeing how much stationery, books, paper and other such things have featured. This month I am a little proud that I went into a couple of stationery shops without buying another notebook for myself! I do have a giant pile so need to reign in for a little while. So what have been the highlights this month? With my new part-time work…

Calling My Son A Girl

Calling My Son A Girl

I would not describe myself as a gender neutral parent to any extreme degree. If H wants to watch Barbie on Netflix, I don’t hesitate to say ok. If he wants a pink and purple Doc McStuffins Doctor’s set, not a single part of me is worried. He doesn’t wear tutus or dresses, but then neither does he ask to. So when people make comments to him, implying he is…

What do you struggle with? What has…

{The Ordinary Moments 15} #8 | The Rainbow Room

My darling boy has been going to nursery since he was ten months old. It was painful. To go from 7 days a week together. To only 2. He was so little. Not even walking, with a mop of blonde hair that had never been cut. And now? Well now my baby boy, in that same nursery that he has been going to for over two years, is moving to…
