FRIDAY FIVE: Why Elsie and I love children’s books by Giles Paley-Phillips

AS a HUGE book fan (I will NEVER own a kindle) it’s perhaps no surprise to learn that I’m passionate about getting my little Elsie interested in books. Admittedly, she is very young still, however I’m already introducing her to all kinds of books from soft ones to squeaky ones, ‘baby’ ones to more grown up children’s ones. Two children’s books that have become firm favourites with Elsie (and myself)

Pouting In Heels is named as a top baby blog!…

SOMETIMES when I occasionally lose my blogging mojo, I wonder why I am spending so much time beavering away, when I could be sat with my feet up relaxing.

FRIDAY FIVE: Things to do with your shoes (besides actually wearing them)

A FEW years ago on eBay I purchased this fabulous pair of vintage Russell & Bromley disco-tastic heels. They are one of the most divine pair of shoes I have ever seen in my life (and make no mistake I’ve seen a few), but there is a problem. Yes folks, unfortunately they are just a teeny bit too small for my size six feet. I’ve tried all manner of ways

LIFE: My love for #postcircle

WHEN it comes to communicating, handwritten letters are where magic lies. You can keep your texts, emails and tweets. In my opinion, if you really want to make someone’s day, a surprise in the post is the best way to make someone smile. Unfortunately ‘happy post’ is a bit of a rarity these days.
