A Weekly Round Up #LittleLoves – A Lazy one.

This is the second instalment of #LittleLoves. We’ve had a pretty relaxed week to be honest, I have a uni assignment due soon which I haven’t spent nearly enough time on and Joe’s hours have been all topsy turvy with him doing days instead of nights which has thrown my evening routine out somewhat. I find I’m lazier when he is here in the evenings because I want to sit and watch TV with him rather than doing the jobs I normally do once Isabelle is in bed.

I haven’t bought much new this week, other than this set of three chokers from Primark for £2. I’m not sure about them. I saw them on Emily Norris’ YouTube channel and loved them on her but I tried them on and they just felt a bit uncomfortable. The set of three is one lacy looking one in white, one in black and a grey shade one that kind of looks like the tie thing you get on a cowboy’s hat. I have come to the conclusion that I must have a big fat neck because they just didn’t feel right. Which is not ideal when the ‘in’ thing is chokers. What do you think?

My husband and I have spent this week rewatching Game of Thrones from the start, ready for the new season in a few months. I forgot how much I loved it. I also forgot so much of the plot, it’s actually quite handy rewatching it. Theres so much to get through though, were up to Season 4 as of today as we watched the Red Wedding episode last night. I cried, obviously.

We had Joe’s nephew over at the weekend so went to the cinema on Sunday to watch Guardians of the Galaxy which I have been keen to see for ages. I loved it, but it wasn’t quite as good as the first one.

Oh and YouTube, I have watched a hell of a lot of YouTube this week. Mainly minimalism videos, which I have become a little obsessed with. Pick Up Limes is my current favourite. She’s a nutritionist and a vegan too so I find pretty much all of her content useful and interesting.

This week has mainly been about reading my notes for my essay which is due next week. I have however read The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving A F*ck, which I have loosely based a blog post on if you fancy a read.

I read a post this morning that annoyed me. It was about the rise of the ‘scummy mummy’ and how we are all boasting about how terrible we are at parenting. It’s a load of rubbish. That old saying ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ just isn’t relevant in todays world. There isn’t a village nowadays, parenting is much lonelier and much more isolating which is why I think a lot of people turn to blogging and/or social media to help them connect and feel less alone. I hate the attitude of tearing each other down and judging how each other parents, parenting is hard enough without us all raising our eyebrows at each other. Let’s all just be kind!

Ah this category stumps me. I don’t think I have anything except I have made some lists this week. We have loads going on over the next few months. Weddings, blog events, days out planned, millions of birthdays and fathers day etc. I need lists to help me keep my shit together and not drop any of the millions of plates it feels like I’m spinning.

 

We’re still on Will Smith if I’m honest. The novelty has not yet worn off and we’re bloody loving it.

Another thing I heard this week, was the best thing that has ever come out of my child’s mouth. We got in the car the other day and she said ‘lets go home and get this party started’. It was hilarious, she’s not even 3 years old yet! One of the best thing about her at this age is the stuff she comes out with, she says these long adult sentences but with that childish innocence that just makes it so funny.

I’m going to my first ever blogging conference at the weekend. Head on over to my ice breaker post to find out a little bit more about me and check out all the other posts from bloggers attending too. I’m really looking forward to it. Theres a launch party on the Saturday night and then the conference is the following day in Manchester. I can’t remember the last time I had a weekend all to myself, it’s going to be fab!

  1. Lovely to have you joining in with Little Loves again Sammie.
    I just can’t get on board with chokers, I’ve embraced a lot of the 90s trends but chokers just remind me too much of being a kid. I think if the floppy velvet hats came back I’d feel the same! Though you might be too young to have worn one of those!
    Enjoy Blog On over the weekend, I wish I could have made it this year. x

    1. I think I might have missed out on that little gem! They sound delightful though (going to go and google now for the laughs!). Thanks for hosting! X

  2. I’m not convinced by chokers…. on everyone else, yes, but it’s one I can’t get onboard with. I hope your essay goes well, I’m on my last for this term and just want it out of the way with.
    I hope you have a fab time at Blog On, it’s my absolute favourite- so relaxed and friendly- if only it weren’t our wedding anniversary (which I’m sure he’ll have forgotten!). #LittleLoves

    1. Oh no such a shame you can’t make it! Would have been nice to meet you. I’m not sure I will be popping the choker back on anytime soon to be honest.

  3. Oh I agree I think parenting these days is much much lonelier. It helped me so much to start blogging when I had a newborn and was clueless and connected online with other mothers. I love chokers on everyone but me because i am constantly pulling on them. I will be at blog on come find me say hello I never recognize or see people so wave at me I am useless. lol 😉 #littleloves
