80’s, Autumn & To Quit or Not To Quit? #LittleLoves

Is it just me or are the weeks going way too quickly?  I can’t believe we are almost in October, and I can’t believe I’ve still not had to dig my black tights out yet.  Whilst I’m enjoying the warmer weather I’m ready for Autumn now. Read The one blog post I needed to read this week was this one from Kate at Pouting From Heels, Wanna Ditch Your Blog?  It’s something that has been really playing on my mind recently and I have been giving some serious thought about jacking it all in.  After reading the post I realised…

My Health Mission – Getting Started

When I had O in 2011 I gained an awful lot of weight.  After he was born I had gone from a size 10 to a size 14.  At my nephews christening a month later a couple of people didn’t even recognise me I had put so much weight on.  I had stood there wondering why they weren’t saying hello and then there was a flicker of recognition on their faces as they realised it was me.

Despite already having three denim dresses…

I’ve loved reading these posts by Julia at Rainbeaubelle and other bloggers for the past couple of months so I made a little promise to myself that I would try to join in.  I have to admit I completely forgot about it until I saw a couple of posts pop up and when I thought about it I did have a few things that I could include in a post so here goes. I’m not too sure if this first one is cheating as technically it isn’t under £5, but a fiver exactly!  O spotted them in Marks and Spencers…

Maternity Style Second Time Round

When I found out I was expecting our second child I was really excited to wear my maternity clothes again.  I had fond memories of my pregnancy wardrobe and was eager to retrieve the bag of clothes that had long been stashed in the back of the attic. Maybe in the four years since I was pregnant with O my style has completely changed but the clothes I had been so keen to get back out were a huge let down.  Apart from one white shirt from Topshop the rest was awful.  I tried a couple of things on and…
