MY EASTER PLANS

I can still vividly remember counting all the Easter eggs I received as a child on Easter Sunday. Counting them, smacking my eager lips in mouth watering anticipation and admiring all their shiny, chocolate-y prettiness. It was like utter heaven to me and I would always, always leave the best to enjoy last. Anyone else do that or just me?! I love Easter. Probably because of all those delicious eggs

IT’S TIME TO HIBERNATE (BUT I’LL SEE YOU SOON!)

I WAS sat here this morning thinking I ‘should’ probably write a couple of blog posts. Perhaps do a review before sharing some thoughts with you all this morning. So after dropping Elsie off at school, I made myself a cup of tea, ate two slices of buttered fruit toast and tried to gear myself up for it. And do you know what, I just couldn’t do it. In fact,

LIFE LESSONS FROM 2016

THE end of the year is upon us. And what a year it’s been. Globally, I think we can probably all agree that 2016 has been a bit of a bleak-fest. Trump, Brexit and Aleppo as well as scores of celebrity deaths have left many of us reeling. But tomorrow summons a new dawn. A new year to get our excited mitts on and I for one cannot wait. 2016

HAIR TODAY, GONE TOMORROW?

ONE of the biggest shocks I ever had after giving birth to my daughter Elsie was the day I realised my hair was falling out. I can’t remember exactly how long it was after Elsie’s arrival when this first happened but I seem to recall it being a good few months into new motherhood and that it lasted for quite a while too. There are many things people don’t tell

AS we come to the end of the year, it’s inevitably that time for a little self reflection. I don’t know about you, but for me, once Christmas celebrations are out of the way, I like to use the final days of the year to sit back, reflect and think about the year that’s just gone by and what is possibly to come. For many people January is a bleak

WHAT TO WEAR ON CHRISTMAS DAY

IN just six days time, the biggest day of the year is here. Oh, the excitement! The giddiness! The expectations! I love Christmas and one of the things I adore most about it, is that it gives us the perfect opportunity to dress as festive as we desire. Personally, I am someone who likes to twinkle almost as much as a finely decked Christmas tree (!) so for me on

EASY PEASY SAUSAGE PASTA WITH BARILLA

AS soon as Elsie gets home from school, she wants to eat. And eat lots! She’s always super hungry after a hard day in reception and so I try to be pretty organised with what I’m cooking for her tea that night. But it’s not easy is it?! Sometimes we don’t have stuff in the cupboards because it’s near our weekly food shop time. Other times she doesn’t fancy something

WIH INTERVIEW – TALKING PHOTOGRAPHY WITH HELEN BOOTH

I’VE been meaning to feature this ‘wise woman’ for a very long time, so couldn’t be more delighted to introduce you all to her today! Especially as most of you have already seen her amazing photography ALL over my blog. I’ve had the pleasure of working with the very lovely Helen Booth for a number of years now.
