New Blog Design, Silly Hats and Messy Buns #LittleLoves


I loved this post from Alice who writes the ‘More Than Toast’ blog. Alice wrote about choosing her daughter, Elfie as her #ArWoman. I love the way she writes and this is a lovely, inspiring post about a very special little girl.

I really want to start another book on my Kindle; I have so many waiting for me. But the trouble is, I love books and reading so much that when I get into a book, I can’t stop reading and it’s all I want to do, and I don’t want to talk to my family or go to sleep, or blog or have a shower. And I just don’t have time for that right now.


Gossip Girl! Even though I loved Gossip Girl when it was on I somehow never finished watching it and missed the entire last season, even though I thought I had watched it all. Sometimes I think my brain doesn’t work properly. Oh and I still watch Neighbours (am I the only one?) and have been enjoying that recently. As you can tell from my TV choices: I am a sixteen year old girl.


Ava got a little cash register for Christmas and we discovered this week that the microphone actually works; cue a lot of noise from her and her Daddy as they call all relief cashiers to the checkouts (we both worked at Tesco as teenagers!) and say ‘hilarious’ things about Mummy. Ava was talking down it the other day as she was sat next to me (my ears!), and she said “My Mummy is dead”. That feels really nice I can tell you; especially when broadcast down a microphone. FYI, I’m not.


I’m not very good at making things. Be that something with a needle and thread or something for dinner; I fail. Ooh I did make my blog look different this week! I have a new design and layout, but I’m still working on a few bits, the header in particular so please don’t judge it quite yet!


Slightly less layers on some days, which has been nice. Wavy hair and hats! I am most certainly not a hat person; my style is generally quite simple and I feel like a hat adds too much to an outfit in general (on me), buuut I happened to try on this one below in Topshop (Ava joined me in trying them on and then proceeded to pick up all of the one’s that had fallen on the floor!) and really liked it. I have a big head so a lot of hats don’t fit me, but this one did and I quite liked the idea of it. I’m just not sure if I’ll wear it so I think I might have to take it back. But I don’t want to! What do you think? It got a bit bent out of shape in the carrier bag so I don’t think you can properly tell here. Actually, don’t tell me; it looks like some kind of weird floppy hat here and not at all like how it actually looks. My hair doesn’t look wavy either. I fail at outfit pictures.

And lastly…

I have got the afternoon to myself today! This is a very rare occurrence I tell you. But Ava’s Grandma has kindly taken her for the afternoon to make masks at the library and go to the park. I get SO much done when she is not here; it’s bloody brilliant! I actually can’t wait for her to start nursery in April so I will hopefully be able to catch up on life and housework and things.

Thanks for reading my first #LittleLoves post. I have loved reading other bloggers Little Loves posts for a while and so I thought I would start to join in myself. Hope you like it! And hopefully it will encourage me to start taking more outfit photos so that I can do some outfit posts, as I’ve been meaning to for a while. You all want to see me wearing leggings and a t-shirt regularly, yes? Or pyjamas? Greasy hair in a bun? Sorted.

Messy Hair Don't Care

    It’s my first #littleloves week too! What a cute little ballerina you have there! Love the hat – I love hats but also have a big head so can never find any I like that fit or look ‘right’ on me, yours is great, really suits you! Ha ha I didn’t even know Neighbours was still going – used to love that show! Have a great weekend!

    Aww, hello! I love seeing new littleloves faces! :) Your little ballerina is just beautiful, and I love your hat a lot. I think it really suits you! I know what you mean though – they take a bit of getting used to, don’t they?! Have a lovely weekend xx
