May your autumn be full of blue skies and cool walks… bobble hats and family talks.
Fresh air in your lungs and a crunch at your feet… where the working week ends and the weekends meet!

I hope you had a lovely weekend and got out in the fresh air. I needed a chilled weekend and I feel refreshed for the week ahead. I need to get a good fitness routine going which I’m hoping to start tomorrow 🍂

🍂 So it might just be time for the bobble hats to come out of hiding… anyone else live in hats during the colder months?

It’s been so nice to wrap up in layers of cosy jumpers, boots and jackets this week. I love “sweater weather” so much! If that made you laugh, then you’re my kinda people.

What is your go to Autumnal outfit? I’m in the need for inspiration 🍂

If I was a….

This took me forever to make but I loved doing it. I love being creative and I learnt to use CapCut which Isla absolutely loves. She squealed when I showed her this.

I have the template (which I might blog about as the one I followed wasn’t quite accurate) and I have a few sneaky ways of doing things!

I’ve loved seeing everyone else’s version of this and so I had to do my own! And I wouldn’t change a thing… 

What would you be? 🥰

Is there anything more relaxing and calming than this view? The sun setting over the sea and the calmness in the sea too.

Made me smile looking back at my Summer photos today. I’ve had a day of “cosy” as I drank far too much last night at my friends 40th party… I danced all night and walked home with bare feet. The signs of a good night!

I’ve not been out and danced in years. I literally can’t remember the last time I did that! It was a nice break from being Mum & Dad. Letting your hair down is sometimes the best medicine from a stressful few weeks.

What do you do to unwind?

I think it’s really important to love the space where you work, for you spend a long time working in it! When designing my home office area I kept thinking about what makes me happy…

I wanted a space dedicated to my desk. After working on makeshift spaces for 2 years it felt so nice to have a dedicated work space.

I wanted to be by the garden window so I can see the flowers and watch nature about it’s business. I have seen lots of birds and a few squirrels this Spring and Summer.

I wanted the right storage too. Working from home, studying and the blog all result in lots of things I need to put away. I wanted them to have a home. I’ve got the Kallax unit from IKEA with cupboards, drawers and box storage. It’s perfect!

I’ve been doing a bit of a Autumn clean in preparation for the impending season. I love Autumn, it’s my favourite and I want to start it with a clutter free office area (and mind too).

Anyone else feel more productive if their environment is less cluttered?

Everything feels a little uphill at the moment! Don’t you think?

Noah has been especially all over the place this week. One minute happy and next minute shouting at me! Because obviously it was me that stole his PE shorts after his lesson 🤷🏼‍♀️

We keep getting into conversations that just blow up. I’m not sure what is it but I’m hoping we can sort it out soon. It gets to 5 o clock and we start saying devices down, as dinner is nearly ready, and they’re behaviour changes.

I think we might have to go back to basics. Bedtime routines & no device babysitters after school. I am hoping he is tired which is causing him to feel a bit more frustrated than normal.

Lots of emotions this week. I feel sad about The Queen. A bit worried about the changes ahead. Work has been busy & I had a busy week for uni too. So maybe there’s a bit on me to just take a breathe!

Do you ever have days like this? I feel like I need a day where I’m not near other humans… 😂

The gift of handmade this Christmas #ahandmadechristmas

The gift of handmade this Christmas #ahandmadechristmas

I love making gifts for people, I remember when I made that Crochet blanket for our friends little baby. It made me feel like a great sense of achievement and that gift took months to make, so the love definitely went into the making. That's how I feel about handmade gifts, they are made with love. Which only makes them more special.  VIEW the POST

A Photo Card idea for Christmas

Keeping on your mind and memorizing important dates such us birthdays may become hard at times, as you have a lot of thing to think about each new day. There comes a point where you will totally forget about a birthday or an anniversary only for you to remember it on the last minutes. This means that you will not have enough time to go shopping for a perfect gift and something of substance for that person who mean the world in your life and needs to be surprise; and to show them that you still think and care for them. Some of these dates include birthdays, Christmas or New Year and even anniversaries but there is no need for you to panic anymore. 

My thrifty Christmas bag tip for 2017 #Christmas

My thrifty Christmas bag tip for 2017 #Christmas

I spend lots of money each year decorating the Christmas gifts, I want them to look perfect. So I will buy wrapping paper, pretty string and ribbons, bows and Kraft tags to decorate myself too. I have great plans for my Cricut machine again this year, so I can get crafty with some of the wrapping. But I started to think about how I can reduce the costs and still be happy with my creations.  VIEW the POST

The perfect little pink parcel

I loved finding out that I was going to be an auntie! I hadn’t prepared for it though, I had no idea i would be so overwhelmed and I burst into uncontrollable tears, I couldn’t even speak. I was so amazed and it was such a lovely surprise. I loved it. I was so happy for my brother and his girlfriend. So happy for Noah and Isla to be getting a teeny tiny cousin and a pink one at that.
