Floral maxi dress, House of Fraser

I can’t get enough of tropical hues at the moment and I’ve really been enjoying filling my house with brightly coloured bunches of flowers.

Sundried Tomato Garlic Bread

Summer is in full swing and it’s absolutely glorious. When the weather is this nice we all want to stay outside for as long as possible, so slaving over a hot stove is not an option. Salads make the perfect meal, but they don’t always fill you up. This bread, topped with sundried tomatoes and garlic, […]

Summer adventures start here…
Country walk

Since we redecorated the wall space above our sofa was looking a little bare. The clock that we had before no longer matched our scheme so it had to go. However, when it came to choosing a replacement nothing really caught my eye, until I saw this pin on Pinterest. This diy took a bit […]

school run chic #1: all in black
dork t-shirt, black leather biker

I know it’s summer, but sometimes you have to forsake floaty dresses for an all black ensemble. After years of coveting them on other people I finally took the plunge and bought this leather jacket from TK Maxx last year. It’s probably the most expensive item I’ve ever bought, but I’ve worn it everyday, so […]

Sunday was one of those days that as a family we will remember for a very long time. The Tour de France was passing through our town and so we decided that we would do our bit and cheer on a few of the riders. The weather on Sunday was perfect. Due to road closures, […]

instagram recapped: June
2014_30_06e

I have two Instagram feeds; one public and one private. No, I’m not greedy. It’s just that although I think it’s cute, I’m not sure that you would be interested in pictures of my girls in various princess dresses. June was a busy month for us. Lots of sunshine has meant lots of time spent […]
