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.


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 I’m not happy with my blog at the moment and I need to be the one to change it.  Ultimately I think I want to be more lifestyle than parenting and that isn’t what I’m writing about at the moment.  I need to set aside some time to sit and tinker around, watch this space!


Mostly Narcos season 2 this week, we have 2 episodes to go and it’s getting exciting! Is anyone else watching it?


I’ve made a few Autumn purchases this week.  After having a morning where I sulked at my husband for having nothing to wear I popped to Next and picked up some jeans and a comfy jumper (with pockets) for the school run in the morning which I’m hoping looks coolly casual but is also something I can throw on without having a meltdown that nothing fits.  I also picked up something which I have wanted for years but am not really sure it’s me.  I love it but it’s one of those things I worry will sit in the wardrobe.  I’m going to try a fashion post next week so will reveal all then!


A neon pink tutu skirt, pink gloves, crimped hair and a lot of bright pink eyeshadow.  Oh yes, it was Icons of the 80’s night last week.  We may have had some funny looks but we had a great time.


T’Pau, Nick Kershaw and the absolute highlight was Go West singing “King of Wishful Thinking”.  There was some very bad singing along and a bit of drunken dancing, and because I am such a party animal I was back home for 11pm.

And Lastly…

We’ve been making some holiday plans this week for next Summer.  When O was 6 months we went to the Sensatori in Egypt and loved it. They have since opened one in Ibiza that we both love the look of. After a bit of discussion we’ve decided to book it for next year. I love having a holiday booked to look forward to and am already getting excited!

How’s your week been? Hope it’s been a good one.

    It seems September is the month for making changes, go with your gut honey. Would you change the name? I had a blog makeover at the start of the month & I’m glad I did. Your 80’s look suits you! Ooh I’m looking forward to the outfit reveal. Have a lovely weekend x

    When are the black tights coming out?? I keep thinking surely it’s too warm still, I’m not sure what this in-between weather’s doing! A friend mentioned Narcos to me just this morning, so now you’ve mentioned it, too, I’m thinking this is a sign that I need to watch it! Fab 80s get up 🙂

    Oh, very jealous that you’re booking a holiday. I’m SO desperate for one, but having to go in school holidays is just too expensive for us right now. We visited Sensatori Crete in 2014, and really enjoyed it. Loving the 80’s outfit! Sounds like a fun evening. Enjoy your weekend xx

    Love the pout selfie. You rock. I am desperate need of winter clothes this year. EEK But need to save pennies first. I hate that part. But doesn’t everyone. Don’t stop writing…sometimes just step back more or write a little less and than come back with new ideas and recharged helps too. I was heavy into parent blogging and then last year did way more interior and food posts and now try to keep a balance so all kinds of readers enjoy my blog. (I Hope) That way as the kids get older MM in school next year I can concentrate on those two topics a lot more. Pick two topics or even just one other topic you really love to share and passionate about and slowly incorporate it in and find balance on your blog between variety of lifestyle topics. Just an idea to help you ..Hope you have had a lovely weekend. #littleloves
