What I Wore Wednesday


I love my Boyfriend Shirts.  I have adopted two of my hubby's shirts and I have about 3 of my own.  I seem to be wearing them even more recently...Perhaps it is because I am in packing mode, with the house move getting closer (they do feel kind of DIY-esque)

Skinny Jeans - By Therapy (Dark Rinse Skinny)
Boyfriend Shirt - Over a year old by Lee
Plain White Vest/cami - Whistles Essentials range (bought from John Lewis)
Diamond Stud Earrings - Another of my everyday essentials (bought as a gift from hubby years ago, can't remember which jewellers)

Garden Games Review: Jumbo Connect 4

In one of our local garden centres there is a giant connect 4 and Belle has always loved playing with it. So, when I was contacted by Garden Games to see if we wanted to be sent one to review I had to say yes.

When I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised because it looks like it is made out of wood not plastic! Which is always a bonus.  Belle and I got to work putting it together and it was VERY simple to do! So another brownie point there.



Belle has had hours of fun playing this. We have not actually had it outside yet as we are moving house soon. But when we do I will add some content about how it is outside too.

It is not cheap, priced at £99 but it is one of those games that will be used with adults and children alike, at birthday parties, BBQ's and even weddings.

You can pop along here and see the product in full.

Finally here is a little video of Belle's favourite part of the game...


*This is a review post. We were given the product for free but all opinions are my own.

My Girl

It has been a chilly week with frost around (but still no snow which Belle is desperate for!)

Belle has decided she doesn't really need much sleep anymore, in the day or at night! Nevertheless she has gone off to nursery full of beans for her two mornings and we have still found time to have lots of fun!

On a 2 hour walk in the cold!


Just generally being her cheeky self

Have a great weekend all!

The Gallery: Baby Blue Eyes

This week the theme for The Gallery is Eyes

There really was only one option for this one and it has to be our little Belle.

My husband has very dark eyes and mine are green so it was quite a shock when our little blue eyed girl came along...I have been waiting 2.5 years for them to change...








Her eyes just seem to light up and I have seen so many emotions through them..wonder, excitement, happiness, cheekiness and the hardest will always be seeing them with tears in.
