Marie Kondo, Tulle Skirts & Dinosaurs #LittleLoves

It’s been over a month since I last joined in with Little Loves, although it’s been a while since I’ve blogged much at all, other than to keep up with a few reviews and collaborative posts.  I think returning to work after maternity leave, tied in with G deciding he didn’t want to sleep anywhere but in my arms started to take it’s toll.  Being back in work has been a bit rubbish, but I’m only doing 3 days a week at the moment so it could be a lot worse.  Anyway, enough moaning from me, I’ve missed my positive post for the end of the week so here goes with my highlights.


I bought the Marie Kondo book a few months ago and have just got round to reading it over the Easter holidays.  I haven’t got too far into it but it has already inspired me to start on a huge decluttering mission.  There have been numerous bin bags filled with rubbish and many more heading to the local charity shop.  Once you start, it’s quite addictive and I still have a long way to go.


In my last little loves G has just started crawling and since then he’s only gained so much speed and confidence so there is lots of watching him as he is into everything.  He’s also started cruising on the furniture. He’s so desperate to walk and he’s very determined, I don’t think he’ll be the 20 months O was before he walked on his own.


O and I made Easter nest rice krispie cakes, although I completely forgot to take a picture of them but they were delicious.


My favourite outfit of the past week was getting the chance to wear my pink tulle skirt. I love how floaty it is and it’s so light it feels like you’re hardly wearing anything at all.  I can’t wait for summer to wear it with sandals and a t-shirt.

My no new clothes March failed when I saw this beauty in Oasis.

I’m back on track with no new clothes April and so far no new purchases have been made (and I’m feeling quite proud of myself).


Dinosaurs! Our local garden centre just opened a Jurassic Park themed mini golf course. For a little boy who loves mini golf, and dinosaurs, O was in his element. The dinosaurs move and they play dinosaur roars as you walk round.  

And Lastly…

On Tuesday the husband and I had a date day and headed into Manchester. There wasn’t any special reason other than it had been almost four months since we last went out on our own. A few too many cocktails drunk, and too much food eaten but we had such a great day.

It’s been lovely to be back writing this post and thinking about the best bits of the past week. Hopefully I won’t leave it as long as last time before my next post. Have a lovely week.

    The dinosaur themed mini golf looks amazing! Definitely going to hunt that down ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Your tulle skirt is gorgeous and really suits you (and I can see why you broke your ‘no new’ rule for that top).
    Have a great week ๐Ÿ™‚ #littleloves

    Nice to see you back. Love the top. My littlest is crawling everywhere too. Makes it hard to get anything done! I keep stopping and starting with decluttering. I must have anot her big push before I go back to work.

    The mini golf looks like great fun! I haven’t blogged for a while either, work just seems to have taken over. I need to read that book, might pick it up soon. Enjoy your weekend xx

    That dinosaur golf course looks amazing! My little one would love it. Loving the cocktails and that gorgeous flamingo top! Have a great weekend x

    Love the flamingo top and the skirt and I am off out into Manchester and I fear I will be attracted to lots of pretty things. Well done G!!! It’s so exciting to see but you definitely need two more pairs of eyes now!

    Well what a lot of things to love! Date days being right up there on the list – so great to be out without children and just spending time as a couple isn’t it? We went away a month ago but haven’t been out together since. I’m really missing time on our own tbh. Love that flamingo t-shirt but then you know that because I was eyeing it up on Instagram! And the pink skirt is gorgeous ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    Oh hooray for date night that’s always important. That drink looks tasty too. I love that flamingo top so lovely and that skirt. Wish I could pull this skirt types off. Usually with my shortness and shape they make me look frumpy but you and KA wearing them look amazing I am lusting after one. lol #littleloves (sorry for late reply).
