It’s that time again, the end of the month brings another round of favourites! I actually can’t believe it’s the end of March already, and here I am still hoping for a hint of Spring sunshine. I struggled a bit to come up with our favourites this month because we’ve not been using/doing that many things that are actually new, but a chat with my other half has jogged my memory so here goes:
Before I entered the world of Parent Blogging I didn’t realise how inclined people are to categorise themselves when it comes to parenting styles. Continue reading
I posted a picture of my latest culinary concoction on Instagram yesterday (yep, I’m THAT person) and I thought it would make for a nice little blogpost to share the recipe with you all. I’d seen various recipes along similar lines, but to be honest I’m lazy and impatient when it comes to cooking so I wasn’t willing to go and buy extra ingredients/take forever prepping and faffing on. So, I just hoped for the best and made up my own recipe using what I had in the fridge/cupboards already – luckily it worked and tasted delicious!
I thought it was about time I continued my little series on ways people have been unhelpful during various parts of my pregnancy and parenting experience so far. Everyone and their cat loves a newborn, almost as much as they love making suggestions and comments on how you should be parenting/coping so far, so Part 2 is going to be all about ways to NOT be helpful to new parents.
A few weeks ago I was nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Claire from The Pramshed (thank you so much!) I honestly didn’t really know what this meant but I’ve since read up on it a bit and I couldn’t be happier to take part. The award is a great way to discover new blogs and most importantly to receive acknowledgement that someone out there is enjoying your blog and give love to the blogs you think are great! Also, the word ‘Liebster’ has a few meanings in German, including dearest, sweetest, nicest – how lovely is that.
You all know the drill – a monthly favourites post is a staple of the blogging world that doesn’t need much introduction. But I did think I’d try and put a little bit of a twist on it, I thought I’d do a combined family favourites rather than just make it all about me. So there’ll be two favourites each from myself and George but also a family and couple favourite just to make things a bit more accessible to any non-parent/male readers out there.
My favourites this month are a bit of a mix; fashion and books.
Clark’s Black Leather Chelsea Boots
I am strictly of the opinion that you can’t go wrong with an ankle boot. Whether it be black, tan, suede, leather, heeled or flat, they are a classic wardrobe staple and if money allowed I would have a wardrobe full. When I was a teenager I remember thinking Clark’s shoes were so uncool and I would’ve had a full on meltdown if my Mum had suggested we buy my school shoes from there. I don’t know if I was just being an ignorant brat or if Clark’s designs have had a recent makeover but I LOVE the shoes in there at the moment. They’re well made and substantial, no more leaking soles or worn down heels after a couple of months of wear, these things last. My Mum bought me a lovely pair of black leather heeled Chelsea Boots in the Clark’s sale just before Christmas, they’re sadly out of stock now, but there’s plenty left that are similar and I’d really recommend checking them out if you’re in the market for a new pair of boots.
