#LittleLoves featuring Kimmy Schmidt and Kool Hats!

Just two more weeks until school breaks up, and it feels like it might actually be Summer. I have abandoned my dream of having my building work complete by the end of the month, but it was probably a tad unrealistic anyway! I hope you have all been having a great week? And just so you know – I know that cool, spelt kool, is not cool. But I like a bit of alliteration – so kalm down!

Here are all my Little Loves:


So very very little… but I did read that floppy hats were making a comeback? More on that later…


I have decided to start watching The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix. I’ve been eyeing it up for a while, but this week I took the plunge. About 30 seconds into it I realised it was going to be more surreal than I expected. However, in saying that, I’ve now watched 3 episodes so I’m obviously finding it entertaining! Kimmy basically was a hostage for 15 years and is now trying to build a life in New York. I personally think her street cred is pretty good considering!

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt


My boys had gone all quiet on me one day and when I went to investigate I found this!

Brothers reading

Lewis and Aaron were tucked into bed together, and Lewis was reading Aaron a story! The cutest thing I’ve heard in ages!


You know I’m a huge fashion fanatic and love taking a selfie! (Now re-read that sentence with a large dose of sarcasm.)

White sunhat

So… what do you think of my new sunhat, which I picked up from Poundland! Having read these were back in fashion, I figured I would try one out for a pound! I’m not sure I would go into the village like this but I quite like it for the garden! Actually, I’m just so pleased that a sunhat is required this week, that I might just wear it on the school run, just for fun! (P.S. they also had them in black with a white ribbon, if you wanna be in my gang.)


The only thing I have ‘made‘ this week is a concerted effort to drink more! Why? Because I am going on a hen weekend in 6 weeks and currently can’t make it past 1 glass of wine without falling asleep. I need to get to at least 2! That would be respectable, right?

Glass of Rose wine

And Lastly:

I received some wallpaper from Graham and Brown, and have been experimenting with colour palettes and mood boards. You can read about that here. I’m hoping to include a bit more of that into my blog now I am starting to pick up some items for our extension. I actually found it really helpful in terms of visualizing the decor of the rooms! Every day’s a school day and all that!

Hope you have been enjoying some sun this week and don’t forget you can click the link to visit But Why Mummy Why who hosts this lovely weekly round-up!



  • Not A Frumpy Mum says:

    Haha, I love that you are in drinking training! Hope it goes well xxx

  • I LOVED Kimmy Schmidt – it’s so surreal but really lovely. I watched it all one weekend when I was ill in bed!
    That picture of the boys reading in bed is so cute, capturing little moments like that are so important aren’t they?
    Hope you had a good week xx

  • That new hat suits you and a mega bargain too!! A QUID!!! Nice find! 😉 #LittleLoves

  • Loving your reasoning with upping the wine intake! I’ve kind of dropped mine recently which could be messy on any unexpected nights out (few and far between to be fair!). Sweet that your eldest was found reading to his little brother – JJ doesn’t really do that with EJ but I do over hear him being a kindly big brother sometimes which is cute. I didn’t know floppy hats were in – I really don’t suit a hat though to be fair, whether it’s in fashion or not. I really wanted to be able to pull off that cool straw trilby thing, bought one then promptly returned it as it just looked naff on my head! Oh well! Hope you’ve had a lovely weekend Xx #littleloves

  • Ha ha I love that you’re in training to drink more wine! Your two look so sweet sat there together reading. Have a lovely weekend x

  • Donna says:

    Drinking more wine can never be a bad thing 😉 love the hat too, a bargain for £1! Have a lovely weekend x

  • You should be taking more selfies!! Love that hat! Full that glass girl, I’m having one while catching up on all ye’re little loves! I wish I would find my daughter “quietly reading” she does nothing quietly! They are so cute! Hope to have a great weekend xxx

  • Alice W says:

    You look fab in that hat 🙂 your boys reading to each other is so sweet..also, I love your wine glass, it’s so pretty. Hope you have a fun weekend xx

  • Kimmy tis so much fun to watch! Love the colors of that series so pastelly! #pocolo

  • I love that you are in drink training. That is the sort of training I can get on board with. I had one glass of wine with my meal last night and was going cross eyed. Long gone are the days when I can drink the lads under the table!
    How cute that your boys were quietly reading. If mine are quiet you can guarantee that they are trying to kill each other/ colouring on each other or up to some form of shenanigans. xx
