The perfect summer dress


Recently I’ve been trying to add a little more colour to my wardrobe, particularly as it’s summertime (despite what the varying weather suggests!). When I was approached by JD Williams to try a dress from their summer collection, I thought it was an ideal opportunity to try something nice and bright. Browsing through the collection, I was immediately drawn to…

Bedroom makeover – the big reveal


A few months ago I wrote a post, which talked about my plans for revamping our bedroom and shared my inspirations. We finally finished decorating and revamping our bedroom a few months ago and I’ve been desperate to share the final product with you all. Firstly, as much as I don’t want to, it’s probably useful if I share with…

A fun family day in Bakewell


Although the weather hasn’t been particularly great of late, we’ve been making a real effort to get out and about at weekends. We find being in the house with all the kids can be a little testing at times! We don’t live very far from Derbyshire, so we’ve been trying to take advantage of the lovely countryside it has to…

June Capturing Our Moments

Capturing our moments – June


I’m a little late writing this post, but better late then never I suppose! I thought this month had been pretty quiet, but flicking back through photo’s in preparation for writing this post, it’s clear that it’s actually been quite busy. At the beginning of the month we had an amazing week in Dubai, which I’ve written a full post…

Interiors to-do list


A couple of years ago we had a large extension on our house and spent quite a lot of our time decorating. However, before we could get every room completely finished we ran out of enthusiasm (and money!), and as a result we’ve just lived with it as it is. Don’t get me wrong, we don’t have cables hanging out or…

My Captured Moment – Sports Days


This week has been a week of Sports Days, and thankfully the weather has been kind! Although I don’t think they warrant a post on their own, it’s nice to capture them and this weekly My Captured Moment post is the perfect place. On Monday Oscar has his Sports Day. He was super proud to come third in his running…

A new home and a bit of a revamp too!


  I’ve finally gone and done it!! I’ve moved my blog over to WordPress and gone self-hosted! I’ve been contemplating it for over a year now, but I’m not the most tech savvy person and, if I’m honest, I was more than a little scared! However, I recently attended Blogcamp and there was lots of talk of fantastic plugins that…

Father’s Day 2016 – My Captured Moment


This week’s My Captured Moment is a few photo’s from Father’s Day, which was last week. We’d prepared presents the night before, so the kids were all super excited when they woke up and couldn’t wait to ‘help’ Simon open his presents. We went to Harvester for breakfast, and although the food was okay, the children were not. They were…

It’s all about survival!


When I’d first had the twins, I remember someone saying to me that she could always spot parents with three or more kids as they were more laid back than those who had one or two children. I didn’t really get it at the time, but it’s something that has always stuck with me and I think she might be…

Our trip to Norfolk


I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now, but I never seemed to be able to get round to it. However, although I’m posting well after our trip took place, it’s a trip that I want to capture as we had such a lovely time. During February half-term we went to Norfolk for a week long break.…
