Loves of late...

This post was inspired by the lovely Victoria, who recently kindly gave my blog a mention in her 'What I am currently loving' post - so thank you, Victoria! I've been loving lots of things lately so I thought I would do a little post.

The Primrose Bakery - it was my boyfriend's birthday yesterday and we popped into the one in Covent Garden for tea and a cupcake. Ben, typically, got a chocolate cupcake and I went for a rose one - which was so yummy. I would definitely recommend a visit if you're ever in London. I have the Primrose Bakery book, which I have tried a few recipes from - now I am desperate to try the rose cupcakes, as mine was so lovely!

Illamasqua speckled nail polishes - my boyfriend got me the lilac one and now I'm after the whole collection! Who doesn't want mini egg nails?!

Saving - bit of a funny one, as I love shopping and spending money in general. Although I have made a few little purchases this month, and treated Ben on his birthday, I have been a lot more sensible and not as quick to spend money as I usually am. It feels good! I just hope I can keep up Frugal February for the rest of the month.

Crafting/DIY-ing - always a love of mine, but I have done a fair bit lately - namely some floral bunting [which I am yet to finish], jewellery making and a little DIY which has been on my list to do for a little while - post soon!

Baby clothes - every time I pass by a baby/kids clothes shop I have to stop and take a look. My nephew isn't due until May but I've already bought him a couple of onesies, and I'm finding it hard to stop there! Spoilt little munchkin.

This quote which I found on Pinterest. I think it's perfect for my boyfriend as he is so fussy and he always says I should feel privileged as he is with me, ha ha.

The Walking Dead - I love this show and I'm so glad it's back on! I have a few US shows I watch each week - is it sad that I get excited at work, knowing I have something good to watch at home in the evening!? It's the little things.

Summer holiday planning - we've booked to go to Malta and I am super excited - especially as we are planning to do the dolphin swim whilst we are there! We almost did one when we went to Portugal in 2011, but couldn't afford it. So I think it's a must this time!

Blogs - I couldn't end this without mentioning a few of my favourites! Lily Loves Lola, A Rosie Outlook, Sail boat, A Million Dresses, Sweet Monday, Cold Knees and Little Winter - these are just a few of the blogs I've been loving for a while now. I'm always on the lookout for new blogs to follow so please feel free to recommend your favourites!

Hope you all have a beaut weekend. x


  1. I'm also trying to be frugal this February, I thought it would be easy as it's only a short month! I've not tried the Primrose Bakery before but I love the Humming Bird Bakery cookbook - their brownies are so good!

  2. Your nails are so pretty, and I want that cake! X

  3. I found your blog through Lily Loves Lola & have really enjoyed having a look around :)
    I really love the mini egg nails & baby clothes. I couldn't stop buying them for my nephew either, they're just too cute.

    I'm so happy the Walking Dead is back too! I'm just waiting for later in the year when my other favourites are back ( Game of Thrones & Breaking Bad)
    (This turned in to a bit of an essay comment!) x

  4. Aw thank you for mentioning me :) That's so sweet! xx

  5. Thank you so much for mentioning me lovely lady, really made me smile! That speckled nail polish is so pretty, just like mini eggs! <3
