Cake, Sunsets, and Lots of Yellow #LittleLoves

Hello! This week has been a bit of a crappy one – we’ve all been poorly at slightly different times and it’s been pretty hard work. We did make it to Alton Towers with our Merlin Annual Pass on Monday though, which was great fun. CBeebies land is great for the little ones, and Ava even went on her first rollercoaster! She was a little bit scared though, which was a shame as I wanted to go on it again – but I wasn’t sure I could get away with going on an Octonauts rollercoaster on my own ;)

Welcome to this weeks Little Loves!


I read that Ava didn’t get into our first or second choice of school! That was fun to read.

I read Kerry from Noah and the Girls ‘Lovely Lemon Loaf Cake‘ recipe – and it looks so good. I’d really like to try making it soon – I love lemon. I love Kerry and her blog so you should definitely check it out if you haven’t before. She’s a #LittleLover too ;)

Doesn’t it look amazing?!

I am definitely going to start reading an actual book (Kindle stylee) over the next week. I literally haven’t read a book all year and I love reading and I miss it so much. I just know how much I get into them when I read and don’t want to do anything else so I keep not bothering.


Lots of Pretty Little Liars and I also sadly finished Season 4 of Suits – don’t you hate it when you have no clue you’re at the end of a series, and then suddenly you are and it sucks big time. No more Harvey for a while *sobs*.

This isn't why.


Plans! That’s about it I think.


I wore my new yellow Mac from Topshop when we went to Alton Towers on Monday. I love yellow and I feel all nice and sunny in it.

You can’t really tell in this photo, but I’ve also had my hair cut quite a bit shorter. I get bored so easily with my hair, so I fancied a bit of a change for summer. It just feels a bit fresher, and I can wear it a bit more messily, which I like.


I’ve been listening to ‘Sunset’ by The XX quite a bit. I fell in love with it from Suits and *that* scene.

And lastly…

I am loving having more sunshine around at the moment, I’d just like it to hurry up and get a bit warmer please! I’m so excited for those warm sunny days; summer dresses and denim shorts, sunglasses and flip-flops, ice creams and adventures. I need all that right now.

Hope you have a lovely weekend!

    I want that mac so bad – love it!
    I can totally vouch for Kerry’s lemon cake recipe, the cake turns out super yummy.
    Finishing a season and not knowing it was the last episode is the worst! I did that with House of Cards and with Orange is the new black. I need to slow down and actually pay attention to the episode number I think. haha!
    Hope you’ve having a lovely weekend xx
