The amount of time it has been since I published a blog post, responded to an email or generally did anything that required me to move… or put any effort in at all unless I had no choice.
I’ve mainly been taking some time for me. I’ve read a book (The Chocolate Lovers Diet by Carole Matthews) which is usually unheard of, almost finished watching Grey’s Anatomy in it’s 13 series entirety and watched the final episode of Girls (we’re you as disappointed as me?!). Read more
There are few things in this world that make my little girl smile more than a Babychino. That said, there are few things that I enjoy more than getting in on the Babychino action… even the best of us fall off the Slimming World wagon but when it comes to Babychinos (or Hot Chocolates if you want to be a ‘grown up’ about it) there is an alternative: Slimming World Cheap and Cheerful Babychino.
It’s so nice to finally have a garden to have Garden Goals for.
We had a little yard at our old house that we spent a lot of time making lovely (read about that here), but now that we have the extra room we’re thinking about how to make our outside space into an extra room of our house.
We spend a lot of time outside when the weather is good enough as the toddler is an explorer to say the least… couple that with the new slide and the Wendy House and you can imagine how hard it is for us to keep her indoors when it’s minus 3 degrees.
But with the beginnings of spring’s new tulips and daffodils poking out of the soil it’s nearly time to let her loose in the sandpit once one – and it is time to start thinking about what we’re going to plant int the coming weeks: what flowers we love and what parts of our home and garden we want to make a feature out of.

These days the norm is to work out like you’re suppose to eat – little and often – so here are a handful of motivational songs penned in the late 80s and 90s for all you (60s, 70s, 80s) 90s kids to appreciate.
A few high tempo to work up a sweat, a few good beats to lift too and an easy listener to cool down to. I hope this is the motivation you’ve been looking for (scroll down to the bottom to find a link to the play list).
One of these days I’ll get around to giving Little Miss Vista a fashion show of all the gorgeous pieces for my wardrobe I’ve thrifted over the past few months. The last thrifty fashion post I shared (you can read it here) was really well received and I LOVED producing it… but sadly I just don’t get the time to shop, style and shoot as much as I used to.
When it comes to thrifting items of clothing, I only have three rules:
1. It’s over a fiver it has to be *really* special. 2. No holes, no bobbles, no stains. 3. If I don’t have anything I can wear it with already in my wardrobe – put it back.Read more
