#LittleLoves – Manchester One Love, LaLaLand & Elections

Just like that another week has flown by and once again I am sat, Macbook at the ready to reflect upon a few of my #LittleLoves from the past seven days.


Unless you’ve been living in a cave or spent the past few weeks comatose I’m fairly sure that just like me you too will have read endless news spiel regarding yesterdays general election.

I have never been massively into politics but I’m not daft and know full well just how important it is to put forward your vote no matter which political party that may be towards. Unlike past elections where I’ve found myself struggling to decide which way to fly I found voting very straight forward and simple yesterday as in my mind there was only one answer.…

E’s First Day At School

With E starting School in September we were recently sent a letter inviting her along to two taster days prior to the end of term the first of which took place on Tuesday.

Following a busy morning at Nursery I brought E home, made her dinner and got her ready for her first afternoon at big school. Other than arriving for 1.30pm I wasn’t entirely sure what was expected of us but wasn’t surprised that E immediately let go of my hand having just walked into her new classroom and began mixing with the current reception class without so much as a glance in my direction.…

Blogging Behind The Scenes- Is Reviewing Products ‘Tit For Tat’ Or Worthwhile?

Welcome to this weeks edition of the ‘Blogging Behind The Scenes’ series. Throughout the ‘Blogging Behind The Scenes’ series both myself and a group of bloggers will be sharing our experiences and advice upon a range of blogging related topics, this week we are discussing product reviews and whether bloggers feel they are ‘tit for tat’ or a worthwhile venture.

Following having our son J back in 2009 I set about creating an online magazine/ blog to share informative posts for fellow parents regarding products and tips that I had found to be either useful or a total waste of time.…

Not A Label Girl

Having being handed a few bags of clothes for E from my good friend D I set about washing, drying and storing said clothes in E’s many cupboards and drawers all of which were carefully sorted and organised ready for wear over the next year or so.

I seem to have a really good ‘clothing exchange’ setup with a few of my good friends, along with the all essential eBay, Facebook selling pages and odd bargain picked up whilst out and about shopping I am able to stylishly cloth my children with relatively little outgoing costs.

As for my own clothing I tend to buy most of it online and am not afraid nor ashamed to admit that I too love a good eBay bargain for myself.…

#LivingArrows – Happy Hopping & Loopy For Lego 23/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks #LivingArrows post, a weekly post in which I share a couple of snaps taken of my wonderful children (I swear there’s not a hint of sarcasm there at all!)

Half term is officially over, the kids have returned to routine and I’ve found myself able to finally focus and get a few things done around the house. No longer am I swamped by piles of post awaiting reading or filing, the house is mostly clean and I have even been able to catch up with a few soaps whilst getting some work done.

I am yet to address the ever-growing email inbox, transfer and file my photos, that and assist J with both his thank you letters and outstanding homework over the next week or so. …
