Emme

Another little cute Emme outfit. The skirt is still a little bit on her but I think this is so cute, it definitely makes her look older. I feel like I want to put her in pink everyday...it really suits her. With the new winter clothes coming out I couldn't help but make a start on her winter wardrobe. She absolutely  loved her frilly socks, sat saying 'wow' for at least 5 minutes after I put them on :).

From next week it's just going to be Emme and I, all day everyday now Cambell is starting full time with Jake. It's going to be so strange having both the boys gone all day, it will definitely be alot quieter! I'm hoping we get some sun this week so we can have some nice days out.

Braids {Outfit}

I've been loving wearing my hair like this recently. Braid at one side, twisted at the other and tied together at the back. It's so easy and super fast to do{needed with 3 children}. I'm in desperate need of my hair doing at the minute, I just haven't got round it yet. Normally I do it myself or my sister does it for me{she use to be a hairdresser}. I think I'l call round one night this week for her to do it.

I'm hoping to call to Ikea this afternoon to get some shelves for the boys room. I've wanted to do the a little reading corner for so long but they never really had room but now I've moved their room around they have plenty of space. I'd love to do one in Emme's room too but I think I'll wait until she has a big bed up so I can see where they would go best as she has a smaller room.

I really like high waisted jeans at the minute. I find them so much more comfortable than low rise ones. I wish I could remember the name of these so I could buy more.

Emme {Dancing in Apples}

I think this little outfit of Emme's is so cute, although it does make her look more grown up {crys}. Can you believe how big she's getting?! I can't! It doesn't seem two minutes ago I was writing up my pregnancy posts. Oh actually talking of baby things, I'm thinking of getting Emme a new pushchair for the school run's. One a bit lighter so if you have any recommendations let me know.

Since it's the holidays we've been having a few days out and going for walks when we can and this is what Emme wore. Her outfit of apples ha! I bought her this cute little apple skirt from next {didn't realise it was apple at first} but it goes perfectly with her apple shabby headband

I'm going to try doing a few little outfit posts more often. She is just crazy and runs all over!!

Eton Mess {Easy Recipe}

This is the most amazing desert EVER! I can't believe I'd never had it before this week {post}. It was so good I wanted to make it the next day just so Jason and the kiddies could try it... Ok not just so they could try it but shhh. I did really want Jason to try it though. So instead of looking up recipes I just went to the shop and bought what I though was in it. Its not very had its only 4 things, but I did guess on the sauce.

I picked up double cream, I got the Elmlea brand I think it was about 80p. Meringue nests (I got some mini ones too but they aren't needed.) For the sauce I found some mixed berry mousse. Finally to top it off Strawberry's!

It is so simple to make and if you have never made it you need to! 
1. Whip some double cream, wish an electric whisk if you have one its much faster than by hand.
2.Add some of the strawberry mousse into the cream.
3.Crumble the meringue into the cream.
4 Add to bowl & pop in the fresh strawberry's!

So easy and cheap. Not going to lie we've had it for desert everyday this week. I do like to add more strawberry's, Emme loved her strawberry's too so I fill most o her bowl with strawberry's for her. If you try it let me know!

Glossybox | August 2014 {3 Year Birthday}


Happy 3rd Birthday Glossybox!
This last 3 years had definitely flow by, I can remember getting exited that Glossybox was about to release their first box!It really doesn't feel like that was three years ago. With a new style of box too, its not a huge difference but if you pop it next to the other boxes you can clearly see the changes.

There's some lovely products in this months box, the main one that made me do a little squeal was the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer. So many people rave about this and I've wanted it for so long but I just haven't ordered it. So excited to try that out. 

Yves Rocher pink mini polish. I wasn't sure I would like this on as it looked a darker pink than I usually go for on my nails but I gave it a go last night and its a lovely colour. It applies really nicely too. 

Figs & Rouge mini hand cream. This is a really nice hand cream and smells lovely. You can definitely smell the Mango and Mandarin. its a good size to keep in your bag too. I've been really getting into hand cream again recently so I'm glad this was included. It soaks in quickly and it doesn't leave that greasy feel.

Kryolan for Glossybox highlighter. I love highlighter! It's one of my favourite makeup items so I'm always happy to try new ones out. I do normally use powder highlighters as they've always worked better for me but I'm going to give this a try today and see how it works. This is full size at £12.95

[Comfort zone] Cleansing milk. This gentle milk cream removes any make up and pollution residues leaving skin softer and refreshed. It is a full size products and retails at £20 from feel unique. This is a lovely product and I'm sure it will be a popular one from this box. 

Finally the Lalique L'Amour fragrance. It's a lovely girly floral scent and I will definitely pop this in my bag for when I'm out but I do wish they were bigger perfume.

Overall I think this is a great box filled with things I will use. I know I will get use out of everything included which is what I hope for in a box rather than one amazing item and then the rest not things I would use.
What did you think of your box?

Dining at {The Light Leeds, Event}

On Monday I headed back to Leeds for an amazing night {as always} at The Light. I love meeting up with other blogger's.Night's at The Light with the girls from Carousel are always great. Just like last time for each course we went to a different restaurant in The Light.We met at Cafe Rouge for a little pre drink and nibbles {almonds & olive's}.

Starter's were served at Miller & Cater where we had different plates to choose from with pork, prawn, chicken & nachos. I'm starting to like to try new foods that I haven't had before which I got to do here.I used to just stick to the'safe' option. I'm finally getting a bit more adventurous which is sometimes great to find new foods, sometimes you find things you don't like,Scallops being one of them for me.

Main was at Frankie & Benny's where we were greeted to big platers of food. I really enjoyed the chicken wraps & salad while Jessica tried the burger. The definitely catered to everyone's needs. 

One thing you can count on while Jessica and I are together is that we laugh, alot. We always have fun whenever we do anything. I came to the conclusion we should Vlog while together. They would definitely be funny. {Maybe one day} 

Finally for desert we headed over to Browns {same as last time}. We expected to get the brownies again as they were such a big hit when we were last here. This time however we had the best desert I've ever had Eton Mess. It was amazing. I can't wait to have it again. I may even try making it myself.

The girls at Carousel are always so lovely to see and have a chat with. Hopefully there will be another dining night to see everyone again, It's always a great night.
