Mummy & Me | August

Saturday, 27 August 2016

It took me a long time to decide whether to post the photo below on social media or not. I've changed a lot since having my two - two children close together meant a lot of extra weight, and a need for a lot of extra cake too! In the end I decided to post it, and the amount of love I got blew me away. 

I may have changed a lot since having children. But just look at those two little people by my side. They call me mama, and they think I'm bloody fab (most of the time I'd hope haha). I couldn't be happier, and they are honestly worth every extra lb and every single stretch mark.

So here's my mummy and me for August. Me and my two toddlers!

Harry Potter Studios, Ice Creams & An Anniversary | #LittleLoves

Friday, 26 August 2016

Happy Friday! What an absolute scorcher of a week! I was totally not prepared for another heat wave, and honestly we've hidden inside most of the week to escape it. Here's what we've been loving this week.


Jack and I had a baby free weekend (the second this month!), and visited the Warner Bros Studio Tour on Saturday. I loved actually having the time to stop to read all the information, rather than race around after the kids. If you're a Harry Potter nerd like us, I'd 100% recommend a visit!


Bake Off is back!! I was absolutely gutted when Jack told me he was playing football Wednesday night, as it meant I had to wait. It was worth it though, and Jack's already got the baking bug.

X-Factor is also back tomorrow which I'm rather excited about!


It was lovely having time just the two of us, but we couldn't wait to pick the kids up on Sunday afternoon. We were greeted by lots of giggles and stories of their adventures. It was definitely way too quiet without them!


A mess! I know this is probably cheating, but it's been too hot to actually do much this week haha. We visited a local park to meet some friends on Wednesday, so of course had to get an ice cream. Parker grabbed it straight out of my hands and was a very sticky mess by the end!


Technically they haven't worn them yet, but how cute are these outfits for my sister's wedding? It's taken me AGES to find something suitable as I'm rather picky, but I just couldn't resist when I saw these.

Parker's outfit is all from Zara, and he'll be matching Jack who's got a very similar one. Indiana's dress is from Next and I'm just waiting for her matching sparkly shoes! I've got 5 dresses for myself on order, so hopefully at least one of those will fit...

And Lastly...
 It was our 2 year 'engageiversary' - is that a thing - on Tuesday. Haha, basically it's been two years since Jack proposed in Paris! It was an amazing trip and hopefully one year we'll go back.

Have a lovely week!
