Pinch, Punch it’s the 1st Friday of the month!

Woohoo it’s the 1st Friday of 2017 and what better way to celebrate it than to kick off with a #Littleloves post.

It’s been a fairly quiet week after the busy hustle and bustle of Christmas and new year but it’s given us a chance to chill and recharge our batteries a bit. K doesn’t start back at nursery until next week so there has been no rushing about in the mornings or time keeping to be had.

This week I have

Read…

Marie Kondo “The life changing magic of tidying”

I bought this book a couple of months ago as I’d heard it was so good but I’d put it to one side and marked it on my “to read” list. Well this week I’ve started reading¬†it in a hope that it will motivate and inspire me to become more organised and tidy in my home. In fairness, I’m not that far into it to judge whether it will work or not ūüėČ so I’ll let this be a “to be continued”…

Watched…

This week I have watched the 1st in the new series of Sherlock and I loved it! I won’t give the spoilers away if you’ve not got round to watching it yet but it’s definitely a must see in my opinion! I loved the last series and think Benedict Cumberbatch is a fantastic actor. He plays the modern day Sherlock so well.

Heard…

“Rudolph the red nosed reindeer”. Seriously. K has decided that after spending the run up to Christmas learning it that she’s not quite finished with singing it yet. I’ve tried to tell her that we are in January now and she’s not officially allowed to sing it again until next Christmas but like all stubborn 3 year olds, it fell on deaths ear.

Made…

This week I made a vow to eat more healthy and exercise more…I’ll keep you updated with that! (I’m sat with a tub of Nutella as I write this *ahem*)

Wore…

Gucci “Premiere” perfume. My friend bought it me for my 30th birthday at the end of December and I love it. I can’t work out whether I prefer it as my day time perfume or my “going out” perfume so until I make my mind up I’ll wear it for everything! Does anyone else have a separate perfume for daytime/night time?

AND LASTLY…

We took K to the pantomime last night in Sheffield to see Snow White and the Seven dwarfs, we all absolutely loved it. It was K’s first pantomime experience so it was particularly special. All the cast were great and the actual production was so well put together that we are already planning next years visit. I’m hoping it might catch on and be one of our Christmas traditions, especially when D becomes old enough to come along too!

That was it for me this week! What have been your little loves of the new year!?

XOXOXO

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

2017 is upon us and it feels great doesn’t it!? I love the start of a new year. It’s a chance to have a fresh start, a new beginning and it¬†makes me feel motivated. It’s also super exciting to see what the year ahead brings especially when there are no “big plans” happening. I’ve never been one¬†to make¬†big new years resolutions as¬†you are destined to fail them a month after setting them so I prefer to¬†set goals for the year ahead and look back at the end of that year and see if I achieved them. I wrote a blog post last¬†January (here)¬†about my 2016 goals and for the most part I¬†hit them which I’m pretty pleased with. The only one that¬†requires a bit (a lot) of work on my 2016 goal that I will be following through to 2017 is my blog I started off last year blogging regularly and documenting my life¬†on my little space¬†of this big wide web and everything was hunky dory then towards the back end of the year I got so incredibly busy and everything that I had to take on seemed far more important than sitting down and writing. I even had a few nudges from my husband reminding me that I’d not written in a while and that STILL didn’t make me any more motivated to do it. I am now going to make a goal for myself that I WILL make the time to sit and write, because ultimately I’m writing to remind myself when I’m old and¬†senile what my¬†lovely little life was like and what¬†we did with our beautiful little children. I’ve decided to set a writing schedule where¬†I¬†publish on¬†certain¬†days to see if¬†that helps. I will also start the year filling you all in about the big stuff that happened to us at the back end of the year (New York and¬†turning 30 to mention a couple) so watch out¬†for those.

My other goals for 2017 are:

To continue to¬†capture and improve my photography skills. Something I think I’ll always be working on but¬†it does take a while when you learn as you go like I have and I have noticed a¬†huge difference in my¬†photo quality from January 2016-December 2016. I’ve had some nifty little accessories for my camera for Christmas and¬†my¬†birthday so I’m excited to get using those.

To continue to work out and eat healthy. Self explanatory. I won’t tell you how much cheese/Nutella I’ve eaten this Christmas *ahem*

That’s it this year I think. Small and obtainable just how I like it.

What are your new year goals/resolutions? I’d love to hear from you!

XOXOXO
