About me – Q&A

I love finding out more about people that I chat to on a daily basis, and I wanted to do a fun post, so I decided to ask on Twitter if anyone wanted to know anything about me (with every intention of deleting the tweet if no-one replied!) and lots of my favourite blogger friends…

All the little things: July

We seem to be hurtling towards the end of the year. July was fairly busy but a really nice month, I got to see a lot of friends and family. My Dad came down to look after Dougie while Sam was away and it was lovely to see him, and we’ve been doing a lot…

Bloggers made me buy it – are these beauty fads worth it?

There are a few brands and products which are firm favourites with a lot of people – and obviously not just in the blogging world. Saying that, it’s easy to spot when there’s a new ‘must-have’ item – certain products pop up repeatedly in beautiful Instagram flatlays or monthly round-ups.

The one with all the pink

Sometimes you need an afternoon filled with friends, cupcakes, pink lemonade and plenty of people-watching in one of the prettiest dining spots in London…

London’s most Instagrammable food

I’ve lived in London for nearly 10 years now, but I still find myself amazed by the sheer amount of things to do here, the sights to see and places to eat. I thought I’d put together a list of some of the most picture-perfect sweet treats in London – ideal for anyone like me…

Baby photoshoot with Barrett and Coe

While my camera roll is completely full of shots of Dougie – blurred photos of crawling, awkward selfies and messy teatime images – I’ve always wanted some more professional photos that we can share with our families and hang up proudly in our home.

All the little things: June

Cue monthly amazement that it’s the end of yet another month – this year is flying by! June hasn’t been too busy, but in case anyone missed it, we actually had a UK heatwave! For us, this meant days enjoying paddling pools and picnics, and sweaty, sleepless nights with Dougie – babies and heat do…

Brighton road trip*

As we’ve been having such beautiful weather these last few weeks, we thought we’d take a mini road trip to Brighton to take Dougie to the seaside. We actually visited Brighton a few weeks before Dougie was born last year, our final trip just Sam and I, and we thought it would be lovely to…

A day in the life

I love reading posts about people’s day-to-day life on their blogs, I think they’re such a fun way to get to know them and get more of an insight into their life – which is often a little different to a carefully selected image on Instagram or a quick, 140-character tweet!

Columbia Road Flower Market

Each Sunday, the Columbia Road Flower Market is held in East London, just off Hackney Road. It’s on every Sunday from 8am – 3pm, whatever the weather. This weekend has been gloriously sunny, and my friend Hannah asked if I wanted to go to the market, so Dougie and I headed to Hoxton to enjoy…

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor

I’ve only ever written one beauty post, I’m certainly no expert, but then I figured if I love a product, why not just write about it?!

London is the place

London is the place I’ve lived for nearly 10 years, the place where I met my fiancé and where I met my best friend. London is the place where my son was born. London is the place where I fell in love with theatre, and in doing so, where I met some of the most…
