SHOPPING AT ‘THE WORKS’

NOTHING delights me more, I don’t think, than the fact that my three year old daughter adores books just as much as I do. As a total and utter bookworm, it was something that I had hoped would happen. The very fact that it has, makes me want to punch in the air and mum dance across the kitchen.

HOW TO BE ‘THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN THE WORLD’

  OK, so this post is a little ode to Prince who passed away yesterday. But it’s also something I’ve been meaning to write about for ages. Beauty. Being beautiful. What is it? Who has it? And what the devil is it all about? Could YOU be the most ‘beautiful girl in the world’?

PREPARING MY HOME FOR SPRING (& SEEING THE WOOD FROM THE TREES)

OK so the weather may not exactly be playing ball right now, but we are now well and truly in spring! Which when it comes to our homes, means one thing only, it’s time for a good ol’ ‘spring clean’ and a sort out. I don’t know about you but I always think there’s something rather lovely and motivating about having a good tidy up. Getting organised. Throwing junk out.
