Lessons from Elsie: When life knocks you down, you gotta get right back up again

IT feels almost ridiculous to be typing that my beautiful little girl will soon be turning two. But yet two she will indeed turn in just over a months’ time. Watching her develop into the spirited, inquisitive, clever, funny and all round wonderful girl that she is, has been and continues to be just a joy. Exhausting and difficult at times yes (toddlerdom is tricky!) but she really is just

LIFE: Looking forward to BritMums Live!

WITH the last few weeks whizzing by in a New York minute, I can hardly believe that in mere days I will be attending my first blogging conference and meeting up with some lovely blogging pals at Brit Mums Live. As the UK’s largest blogging conference, it’s safe to say that I’ve wanted to attend for a couple of years now and so, when a very kind freelancing client of

FRIDAY FIVE (KINDA): A Vlog about the book that changed my life

Now then, I am very nervous about this. Very nervous indeed. *takes a deep breath* Because for today’s post, I have decided to be daring and tackle a personal fear of mine by doing my very first Vlog! Eeek! After being inspired by the talented Zaz at Mama and More, I thought I’d get  to grips with something I’ve wanted to try out for ages and say hi to you all

How a feathery lampshade made me realise that I need to be more daring…

IT’S true. I’m honestly not kidding. This weekend I had an epiphany. A light bulb moment. And it was all down to one feathery lampshade and a harmless weekend trip to B&Q. To give you the background, my husband and I bought a house a year or so ago and it needs lots of work. It’s potential is staggering but there is much to do. We have made progress though.

LIFE: Stuff I’ve fallen in love with recently. Discoveries and the like.

I WASN’T sure whether to put this post under my secrets or life category. After a little deliberation though, I opted for life in the end. (Because it’s what life is all about isn’t it?! Discovering stuff?) But anyway…I’m going off the point here. As it’s always good to show some appreciation, here’s a quick round up of little discoveries that I’ve loved or enjoyed recently. Or in other words,

FRIDAY FIVE: My favourite childrenswear companies

WITH Elsie now approaching her 2nd birthday (I still can’t believe how quickly it’s gone!) it’s safe to say I’ve become acquainted with some fabulous childrenswear brands over the past few years. It’s hard to whittle them down, the choice for girls being particularly fantastic, but here are five of my favourites currently. And some top tips on what to buy from each one. ———   Mothercare An obvious one

LIFE: Amazing advice (in tweets) from incredible women

SO today’s post is completely different than what it was originally going to be. Why, I hear you ask? Well, because last night I hopped onto Twitter before bedtime and found myself favouriting tweet after tweet from the Stylist Magazine team from their Life Lessons event held last night. Seriously, it got kinda ridiculous with the amount of favouriting I was doing! And then I thought, dammmm, this advice is

STYLE: Shopping, Asian style

LAST Sunday I entered an incredibly bedazzling sparkly world and didn’t want to leave. But leave I did a few hours later with two large bags crammed full of beautiful, ethic goodies! I visited the incredible Bombay Stores, described as the UK’s largest Asian Department Store. Situated in Bradford City Centre, I’d been told great things about this shopping mecca by my mother in law, for years, but had yet
