Sunny Sunday’s, Holiday Shopping & Just So #LittleLoves

This week seems to have whizzed by in a flash. We enjoyed a lovely sunny weekend and then of course the return to routine which went much smoother than I thought it would. Phew. Lil G has enjoyed his time at summer club and Nanny’s which has kept the parenting guilt at bay and happy thoughts spreading throughout the week. I have always had a really close and loving relationship with my boy but lately he just seems to want to stay that little bit closer and if truth be told I absolutely love the feeling of our bond getting stronger and stronger.

And here are this week’s little loves…


We have been reading lots and lots about the Just So Festival. It is on from the 19th – 21st August and we are lucky enough to be working with Wild Rumpus this year. I can’t tell you how excited I am to attend our first festival. Lil G is absolutely going to love all of the entertainment, there is so much I’d like to do, singing songs and toasting marshmallows around a campfire sounds pretty good as a place to start. Have you been?

Official Adventurers - Just So 2016


Chicago Fire. A series I have loved for a couple of years now. It is on Sky Atlantic and this season it seems to have stepped up a level on the personal stories which are so gripping. This last episode had my crying (Thursday at 9pm), Mr H always tries to remind me that it is a series and that I shouldn’t get so attached to the characters. But really how can he talk, he cries when he watches football!

And let’s not forget this little cutie. We enjoyed a gorgeous sunny Sunday at Trentham Gardens. I love to watch him and Mr H play ball games but also to just watch him as he people watches. We’re so alike in that sense, enjoying a little nosey at what others are doing around us.

The excitement from this little cutie as we headed out to a pub in the country on Saturday evening. It was soooo lovely to just sit and talk to Mr H whilst Lil G played on the adventure park. He also made friends with some other children which gives me hope for when we go on holiday at the end of the month.

A little brunch on Sunday. We made Lil G’s plate at the Emma Bridgewater Painting Studio a couple of weeks ago and he was so excited to pick it up at the weekend.

I also enjoyed a little shopping trip for some last minute bits and bobs. I am really looking forward to waking to a blue sky for a whole 7 days and of course popping these on…

It was all about the salt-water sandals at the weekend. I managed to order a pair of the Shark Sandals for Lil G and it would seem he shares my excitement! We’re twinning…

Bumble & Bumble Don't blow it, Life As Our Little Family

I have also been trying out some new hair products. Naturally I have wavy hair however the curls only come out when I leave my hair to dry. I stumbled across these styling products and even after just one attempt I really do love them both. Bumble & Bumble never fail to impress me, I am so glad that I took the plunge.

And lastly…

We have a family wedding this weekend. It won’t be a late night for our little family as Lil G will be joining us for the day. The last time we attended a wedding as a family Lil G was only 8 weeks old. This time round he is wearing the cutest three piece suit and I just can’t wait to see him and Mr H is matching outfits!

I hope you have a lovely weekend little loves crew.

      Aww they’re so cute aren’t they. The hat was from Primark honey (£1 in the sale). I nearly picked up the one from Toyshop for £25! So glad that I ventured into Primark! x

    Loving the saltwater sandals but didn’t get round to ordering any this year-my shopping list is mainly about baby! How exciting to be heading off to a festival! Id love it, B would find it a bit stressful I think . Have a lovely weekend hope you have fun at the wedding x

    ooo I like the off the shoulder + pinafore look, so going to be copying this! Love your swimsuit too, I have tried to find one I like for holiday, but didn’t have any joy. We go away this week too, I literally cannot wait. I hope your hangover wasn’t too bad over the weekend. Glad it’s not just me who still over-induldges!! Lol x x x

    Loving Lil G’s sandals, and yours of course, Saltwater Sandals are just so lovely.
    Great hair product recommendations, I’ll have to pick those up next time I’m out shopping.
