LESSONS FROM ELSIE: The gift of undivided attention

SOME of you may have noticed that there wasn’t a post from me on Monday. I like to try and post at least three times a week on Pouting In Heels. It’s a do-able amount for me (usually) and hopefully enough content for you guys to keep things interesting.

Nothing gives me greater pleasure online (well than perhaps writing my own posts) than coming across an article which makes me wanna punch the air and say ‘yes, yes, YES!” (Who said reading couldn’t be orgasmic?!) However, as you’ll know only too well I’m sure, sometimes the Internet is

LIFE: A letter to 2013

AT the end of last year, I wrote a little letter to 2012, to thank it for giving me one of the best years of my life. (You can read all about it why it was here.) I found that writing the letter was a lovely and cathartic way to reflect on the 12 months that had gone by and so as we say goodbye to one year and look

FRIDAY FIVE: My five favourite personal photos from 2013

NOW Christmas is kind of over, it’s time to turn some attention to the past year and get all reflective. Normally,  I’m all about the words but today’s post is much more visually appealing. And to be honest, much quicker too! I mean seriously, there is much chocolate left to be eaten, new toys to be played with (Elsie’s of course) and an entire house to tidy up. (Please tell

FRIDAY FIVE: What I’m thankful for…

TODAY’S post is inspired by one of my favourite blogs, the lovely Florence Finds. Yesterday, the founder of the blog Rebecca, published a wonderful little post about being thankful for what we have in our lives – you can read it here – and because I loved it so much, I decided to do my own version for today’s Friday Five. Sometimes, we all just need a reminder of how
