Colourful Baby Girls Nursery

Hi internet friends!

   If you've been following me on Instagram and Twitter over the last few weeks you will have probably found out some exciting news - R and I are parents! We welcomed our gorgeous baby girl M into this world on 29 June 2016 at 2:48am. She was born SVD and weighed 6lb 12oz.

During pregnancy I spent many hours browsing the internet looking at children's bedrooms and nurseries. I was hoping to come up with a 'theme' of some sort and just enjoyed looking at all the cute items! In the end though, R and I wanted something practical, minimalist and colourful but we also wanted furniture that would grow with M. And that's where good old IKEA comes in!

February Adventures in Brighton

   R and I booked the week off work this week to head down to Brighton as an early birthday treat and to also catch up with family and friends and do a spot of shopping. We headed down straight after work on Friday and arrived around 9:30pm, said hello to everyone at R's brothers place and then headed straight to bed. R had been on training in Sheffield all week so it was quite tiresome for him!

2015 in Review


I know it's currently NYE, but let me start by saying "Happy New Year Everyone"! I hope you spend the day/night however you see fit and enjoy it to the fullest.

2015 has been such a busy year. So much has happened and so much has changed, but it has definitely been a good one.

I'm really looking forward to 2016 and I hope you are too. But before I wish in the new year I'd like to list the highlights of 2015 for us.

Wishlist // Summer Picnic Essentials*

   In a few weeks we will be on our merry way to the North Yorkshire Moors for a camping trip with some good friends. We really do enjoy camping, and my favourite part is going for a walk, finding the perfect spot to sit down, gaze over the landscape and have a picnic!

  To really get me in the mood for our upcoming trip, I decided to generate a mood board focusing on my summer picnic essentials. Here are my top 5:

1 // Eurohike Retro Birdy Picnic Rug - no-one likes a wet bum after sitting on dewy grass! 
2 // Scion Snow Drop Bicycle Cushion - cushions make sitting down that little more comfortable.
3 // Country Deluxe 4 Person Picnic Set - I really like the pattern and the flask and blanket holders, such a good idea!
4 // Dickins & Jones Multi Blanket - great way to keep the chill off whilst eating your picnic.
5 // World Map Cup and Flask - R and I both have a slight obsession with maps, so this would be perfect for carrying our hot tea!

What are your summer picnic essentials?
