GIFT IDEAS FOR DEVOTED DADS

SOMETIMES when I see my husband with my little girl Elsie, I want to cry. Because as Dads go, let me tell you, he is something else. Kind, patient, loving, funny and totally and utterly devoted, I could not have wished or hoped for a better Dad for my daughter. His love for her is so evident and a total and utter joy to behold. In fact, as corny as

BECOMING CHOOSY AS A BLOGGER (& WHY IT’S IMPORTANT)

ONCE you’ve been blogging for a while, the emails start appearing. And boy doesn’t it feel good?! Your inbox which was once pretty quiet starts to become a hive of activity and the fabulous happens – brands start to approach you!

GYPSY CARAVAN HOLIDAY: A MAGICAL TIME IN ‘THE LAKES’

I’VE been on many holidays in my lifetime. And I’ve seen some truly wonderful places. But I don’t think a holiday has ever touched me quite so deeply as this one – a short two day stay in a beautiful painted gypsy caravan in The Lakes. We stayed in the spectacular caravan at The Blue House Bed & Breakfast in Ayside, a beautiful location just ten minutes or so from

SPONSORED POST: THE FUTURE OF OUR KITCHENS WITH IKEA

  THE other night I was cooking tea with Elsie, teaching her to make lasagne. It was an ordinary moment in our ordinary lives, but yet for a moment or two, I could have almost closed my eyes and gone back in time. To one of the moments when I was cooking with my mum, as a little girl, back in our (then) state of the art eighties kitchen. Some

WHAT IF ELSIE MADE UP OUR HOUSE RULES?

  MY daughter Elsie is only two years old but her world is already filled with rules. “Yoghurt is only eaten at the table. We don’t jump on furniture with our shoes on. Whenever you want something, you must say please.” Etc, etc. And on it goes. She can do this. She can’t do that. Rules are important of course. They help me to teach her right from wrong. They

AN INTERVIEW WITH A MONEY EXPERT – ASHLEIGH SWAN

INSPIRATIONAL women come from all walks of life. And one thing I love to do on this blog, perhaps more than any other, is to share their wisdom and stories with you all. Why? Because women never get celebrated enough in my humble opinion and well, I’m doing my bit to try and change that. *winks* Today, I’m sharing a special interview with the wonderful Ashleigh Swan, a mum to

FEELING LIKE A LOSER (BUT BEIND OK WITH IT)

  I FELT liked I’d been punched in the stomach on Friday. For about five or ten minutes, I felt short of breath and just absolutely gutted. Because I couldn’t spot my blog name you see. I couldn’t spot Pouting In Heels on a list of blogs that had made the finals for a major blogging award. And I couldn’t spot Pouting In Heels¬†because I hadn’t made it. Boo blinkin’
