Sad News, Playdates & Glorious Weather | #LittleLoves


What an awful week. So much sadness with the awful news of Manchester on Monday. It made me want to jump straight back onto a plane and head away again.. to get back into the blissful holiday bubble with my family at my side.

This post is all about celebrating the good though, which I feel is definitely needed this week!


Since we arrived back from our holiday, there's been absolutely no time for reading. I've been trying to catch up on the linkys I joined in with while I was away, but with very little success. I'm hoping this sunny Bank Holiday gives me a chance to sit down with a book and relax!


On Wednesday we had an exciting trip to Bewl Water and the beach, meeting up with Harriet and Alice for a play date! The three girls had never all met before, but it actually went better than I expected. It was so lovely to watch them interact and play with each other, and they even let Parker play too which was a relief, (especially as he took a particular shining to Amelia). 


We always have Radio 1 on whenever we're in the car, and on our way home Monday they were live from Radio 1s Academy. They had artists performing live, but the one that's stuck in the head most was this mashup from Bastille. Who knew Snoop Dogg and Lorde could be put together?


Absolutely nothing! Unless 'making' a start on the holiday washing counts?


We have been so lucky with the weather recently! Not only was it beautiful in Ibiza, but it's been absolutely gorgeous since we've been home too. I'm making the most of the weather while it lasts, wearing summery dresses and sandals. 

I love this dress from New Look - the picture doesn't show it but it's bardot style and actually really comfortable. The fit also means it doesn't cling in any places either, which means it's perfect for eating all the food too.

And Lastly...

Anyone else absolutely buzzing for the Bank Holiday weekend? We've managed to spend so much time as a family this month, and I absolutely love it! If only there were Bank Holidays every month.

Have a lovely week :)

  1. Coming back to glorious weather definitely helps to combat the holiday blues, though with the sad news I'm not surprised you wanted to hop straight back on a plane and go back.
    Love you New Look dress, that kind of style is my favourite too.
    Enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend lovely xx

  2. You must have brought the sunshine home with you, and I for one am not complaining! I hope you and the family have a lovely bank holiday weekend #LittleLoves

  3. Ahhh gorgeous beach fun and can't beat a playdate with friends too. You are right this week it's about celebrating the good in life and focusing on that little or big. Hope you have a great bank holiday weekend ahead. #littleloves
