I casually reminded Dave the other day that we’ve only got 4 weeks until our family holiday to Gran Canaria at Easter — 4 weeks TO GO! Which is both exciting and has also sent me into a slight panic too (because of all the new stuff we need to get and pack). I know that most people right now…

I should have written this post in September, when the twins turn six, as that has a much catchier blog post title – but with Mother’s Day looming (i.e. it’s this Sunday) I thought I’d use that chance to reflect on Motherhood, for me, so far.

I don’t know if it’s because it has felt like the longest winter ever, or the fact that I’ve been blogging for four years now, or the arrival of the new social media app Vero, or that Lottie has been waking again early — or all four of these things — but lately I have been struggling to think of…

I have a new BFF in fashion – and that is the midi heel. The midi heel (or kitten heel, as it’s also referred to) is an absolutely perfect shoe for spring/summer, especially for the transition into the new season. It’s a great shoe style for work wear, or to smarten up a causal outfit.

There is a cute new accessory about town, that keeps catching my eye lately and I can’t stop obsessing over them. The mini-bag is something that keeps cropping up all over my favourite style websites (and via social media) and luckily they’re available in all kinds of shapes and colours. I was kindly sent a lovely tan one from Monsoon last…

Like a lot of people over the last month, Dave and I have been spending hours in the evening scrolling through online travel companies to seek out good deals on summer holidays. This is in a bid to inject some excitement into our year (because it’s SO nice having something to look forward to, isn’t it?). We promised the twins…
