11 Things That Cheer Me Up In Winter...


I am really looking forward to Spring! Winter months really gets me down.

I'm not a big fan of the cold days and dark evenings. All I really want to do is lock myself away until the warmer weather. No chance of that though.

If Winter gets you feeling blue too, I have put a list of things together of some things that cheer me up.

Maybe you can try a few of these things too?

Fool Proof Guide To Dressing Well This Valentines Day...


A few weeks ago Matalan kindly asked me if I would like to take part in a fun fashion Valentines challenge: A Fool Proof Guide To Dressing Well This Valentines Day. How cool!?

Anything that involves getting dressed up and sharing some of my ideas, always sounds like lots of fun.


Matalan picked out a whole new outfit for me and asked me to share some of my own tips on styling an outfit for Valentine's day. I also got sent some lovely underwear from their Lingerie Style Guide.

What I Wore : Wollaton Hall Cross Country...


On Saturday we had a day out at Wollaton Hall in Nottingham. My youngest 2 were running cross country. 

It is such a lovely place here,  I just wish the sun had been out.

 Instead it  was a really cold and miserable day so I wrapped up warm as I had a fever earlier in the week. 


Apparently there is a lot of deers that wonder around in the field behind me but we did not get to see any today, just one in the far distance. 

I am looking forward to taking the children and Mollie a walk in the summer to go and find some.

What I Wore : Meadowhall :Real Mums Real Style..


A few weeks ago we went shopping with the children to Meadowhall in Sheffield. I love to go shopping here. The trouble is when you get to Meadowhall;  you wish you had lots of money as you see plenty of thing you want to buy. 



Also they have the most amazing places to eat so you are always hungry when you get inside with all the lovely smells round.

What I Wore : 20th Wedding Anniversary...


Happy Thursday lovelies...

How is your week going? 

It has been a mad busy week here, shopping for back to school things. Just my daughters school shoes and bag left to buy, then we are finished!

On Tuesday evening me and my husband went out for a meal to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. It was a beautiful evening. The sun was shining brightly, we could not have timed it better for a nice walk out.  Just the two of us was so lovely. A rare date night out. I also got to wear my lovely new dress that I had been sent to review.


Change your mind about something?

Last week House Of Fraser got in touch with me to see if I wanted to review one of 3 pretty dresses. This was the only one in a size 10, so I choose this one.

How Do You Handle A Compliment? Creative Mondays Blog Hop...


Happy Monday everyone. Hope you've had a lovely weekend?

Creative Mondays is my favourite blog hop of the week as I get to see all your amazing creative ideas. Link up, have fun reading other posts on the hop and please be kind enough to link back to the hop in your post.


In a recent survey commissioned by George at Asda, they found out that 41% of women feel unsatisfied with their body shape, and only 13% of women find compliments about their body shape to be believable. 

I think we can all find something we don't like about our bodies, especially as we get older. I could easily write a list of things I would like to change. If somebody does pays me a compliment though, I would be smiling all day and believe them ;)

Happy Thursday! 

Hope your having a lovely week so far? 

Busy busy here with the children still on school holiday. Not many days off school left now. My eldest 2 sons have gone back to uni. It is starting to get a little quiet around here now.

Talking of Mollie, can you believe she ate the corners of 3 of my dinner table chairs yesterday!! She is nearly a year old too!! Grr now most of my 8 chairs have been bitten somehow or another by her :(

Black And White : White And Black Polka Dots...


Happy Saturday!!

Did you grab a bargain yesterday on Black Friday?


After watching last years YouTube videos of people fighting in the supermarkets; I gave them a miss! I was temped to go and have a look though!

 Instead I went to meet one of my sons, who is at Uni in Nottingham for a spot of catching up and window shopping. We were suppose to buy lots of presents but everywhere was so busy. They queue's in the best shops looked hours long. So glad you can do it all on line!

A Walk In Sherwood Forest : What I Wore..

One day last week we spent the afternoon walking around Sherwood Forest. The children were off school for half term, so keeping them occupied was obviously top priority. 


The sun was shining brightly, with a slight Autumn chill in the air. A great time to wear my new jeans and Poncho from Sainsbury's then!
