9 Months in | 9 Months out

9 Whole Months!! Like W.T.F! 9 Months in… 9 Months out Evelyn is 9 months old today… that’s a whole pregnancy! Or 4.5″ of hair growth, or the time it takes to read Harry Potter series 168 times, or Watch a butterfly appear from a cocoon after it makes it about 25 times!!! It is such weird feeling still that she is here and she is ours. It gives me cold sweats when I think about how quick it has gone and all the things she has learnt to do and all the things she will  ...

What is in my ASOS basket right now

It has been so long since I have done a ‘What’s in my basket’ but I feel it is kind of fitting right now. If anyone was part of the ASOS A List members programme from way back when, you’ll know that earlier in October the programme came to an end. (insert tears) However, as a sad goodbye they emailed us with a £10 giftcard to be used on anything. I can tell you now my wishlist with them is by far more than £10 but this is what I have been eyeing up. I think i am a  ...

I Just Want To Write

Writing has always been an outlet for me. When I was a child/young teen I was forever writing stories or starting new diaries. Every year it started so well with such good intentions. I’d steadily keep up my entries for about 2 months or so, on and off for 4 or 5 months, but I would start to forget or life or school would get in the way. But then I had a very different upbringing to most, but that’s for another time. I remember January 1st always started like; ‘It’s  ...

Going Small, Local And Affordable For Your Wedding

The cloud that is thrown up in front of us when it comes to weddings is due to our own making. It’s customary in our culture to just expect and want a big wedding. But what if there are multiple factors that you realise are driving you toward doing the opposite? What if you don’t want a large wedding even if you have the money for it? Speaking of which, what if you don’t have the money for a big bashful wedding? Perhaps it’s not your style to be overzealous and grandiose. But  ...
