#LittleLoves – May 2019

Half term is almost over, as is the month of May. It’s been a manic month, to say the least, we have been super busy but we’ve had plenty of fun. Here are a few of my #LittleLoves from the past month.


This was the month that finally got back into the books, chick lit (as it requires barely any brain power) but still a fantastic little read.

Sophie Kinsella is one of my preferred authors, I clearly remember reading the Shopaholic series and thoroughly enjoying her material. Sophie’s ‘My Not So Perfect Life’ was another awesome read which I thoroughly recommend.

Having grown accustomed to ‘Netflix and Chill’ I came across the film ‘Chalet Girl‘ and decided to give it a watch – what else are weekends for?!

As a teen I always fancied being a chalet girl for a season or two, I had the skis, I had the boots and years worth of lessons under my belt, I’d also worked in kitchens and thought by combining the two skills that I could spend a few months in the alps before heading off to Uni. Sadly my Father had other ideas and insisted that I get straight into my education, he was probably right though in hindsight. Still, this film was right up my street with the snow, the skiing, the comedy and a little romance thrown in for good measure.

I’m a big fan of angst-chick music, there’s something rather cathartic about the likes of Tori, Alanis, PJ Harvey and those types. Whilst browsing Alexas many playlists, I stumbled across Skunk Anansie – another old time favorite. I’ve since listened to her live album over and over and cannot get enough of it!

With my son turning double digits, I was asked to make a ‘Moo Cake’ to celebrate. Despite having very little time to create such a masterpiece, I somehow pulled this cake together within an hour or so and it wasn’t too bad if I say so myself – it also tasted delicious too!

With my wardrobe being entirely black, I don’t tend to entertain colours, especially not the likes of pink! This weekend however I was kitted out in a pink sash, fluffy diddly boppers and I didn’t look so bad I guess – at least I wasn’t the only one dressed in the girly get up thus I didn’t feel such a sore thumb.

And Lastly

This month my husband and I both got brand new, top of the range, handsets – an IPhone XS Max and a Samsung Note 9. Being a girly geek I’m now in tech-heaven- I’m completely and utterly in love with the camera and couldn’t be happier with my handset. Guess which one is mine?

    That cake looks good, and I would never be able to pull off a cake in such a short amount of time. Hope your son had a lovely birthday. I am reading a Sophie Kinsella book at the moment, but finding it a little slow going which is a shame as I have read lots of her books in the past x

      She’s pretty good but have you tried Jane Green?

        Oh the cake looks amazing! I have to attempt to make one this month as my littlest turns 8! Hope you son had a good birthday! I’ve never read any of Sophie’s books but heard good things! May have to have a few added to my wish list. Can not beat a brand new phone! Enjoy! Thank you for linking up and hope you have a wonderful month ahead xx

    That cake looks pretty impressive for an hour’s work! I read all of those Shopaholic books too but haven’t read one of hers for a while, they are such easy reading aren’t they?

      They sure are – less brain power required which makes for enjoyable reading.
