As a mum of very small children I never expect anything special for Mother’s Day. There is nothing better than a homemade card, a drawing or perhaps a bunch of flowers. However with Mother’s Day just around the corner I have put together a gift guide with few ideas for different styles, should you want to treat your mum a little bit.
I really enjoy looking inside other people’s homes to see their ideas and design choices, don’t you? Here is a sneaky peak inside my friend Donna Ashworth from Ladies Pass it On‘s home. I would love to hear about your favourite pieces too.
As a lover of all things interior and a big fan of this blog I am over the moon to share with you those items within my own home that bring me constant pleasure. Like most of us I imagine, there are many things still on my to-do list but these particular aspects of my house are what makes it a home.
The Big light
My husband bought me this A light as an anniversary gift, the symbolism of the A for my married name is dear to me, and I think this light looks great in my under-stairs nook. It casts a really cosy glow in the evenings and it means something special to us too.

Let me tell you something about me, not only I am short, but my legs are disproportionately short compared to the rest of my body. Yes, it’s true. Buying trousers is always a bit of a mission and even petite ranges are sometimes a bit too long for me.
I’ve recently been on the search for a new pair of jeans and this has made me realize how it’s not always easy if you are petite. After trawling lot’s of shops and trying different styles and brands, I finally got the perfect pair in Marks & Spencer, one place I didn’t even realize did short length jeans.
Here are some of my favourite places to buy petite jeans:
I can’t believe we are already in the middle of January. The days and weeks seem to fly by and spring will hopefully be here soon. One of my blogging resolutions for the year is to produce more style / fashion posts. This was my intention when I created the blog 18 months ago but somehow fashion got a bit sidetracked in favour or parenting and interior posts.
I am not working at the moment, and haven’t been since the end of October. This has really affected my style, I am making less of an effort and I find myself wearing jeans and scruffy jumpers on a daily basis. It’s easy to get into a bit of a rut if you spend a lot of time at home. My short term goal is to do a bit of a wardrobe clear out and start wearing anything but jeans.
