A little me time...

Last week I was supposed to have a few days Lifeguard training as I've recently become a Baby and Pre-School swimming teacher, however it ended up being cancelled but Finn was already booked into nursery for the today. I half enjoyed my day and half felt like my right arm had been chopped off. My lay in was bloody lovely though!

I did what any childless shopping lover would do and took myself off for a day of shopping. Aside from the bits and bobs I bought for my blog give away (here) I picked up a few pieces in Primark.

First up this scarf in a gorgeously wintery plum colour with skull print. I own this is beige and pink and adore it, this one is perfect for fall.

Not wanting to break out the winter coat just get but feeling the need to embrace the cooler weather, I picked up this gillet, sure it's more practical than fashionable but I like it!

Lastly I picked up the studded pumps that are all over the blogosphere at the moment, I love these so much, i'm hoping for some crisp days instead of rain so I can get some wear out of them!

Finn did well out of my shopping spree too, I picked him up these two shirts and some long sleeve vest. I love the denim shirt with the elbow patches.

He's growing up so fast now, I'm finding myself taking more and more photo of him so to not miss a thing.

A little thank you

Last week my little blog turned one. I can't quite believe it, I started it as a way to record some memories of Finn and to write about a few bits and pieces that I enjoyed, I didn't expect to get one follower, let alone you lovely lot!

So to say thank you for sticking by me when my posting goes awol every now and then and for listening to my ramblings I thought I'd do a small give away of my favourite things.
Firstly is a Emma Bridgewater notepad which combines my two loves, stationary and of course Emma Bridgewater. I am sucker for stationary, I could amble round Paperchase for hours and my favourite part of school was buying a new pencil case each year!
Secondly is a Revlon Just Bitten Kissable lipbalm in Darling Cherie. I bloody love these and this is my most favourite shade of the collection.
Next we have a Sleek Blusher in Rose Gold. I absolutely adore this and wear it daily, it is such a pretty shade.
Then we have a little facemask and a Collection nail polish in the shade Milkshake which is a gorgeously muted nude.
Lastly the chocoholic in me cannot do a give away of my favourite things without chocolate, so I thought I'd throw in a Nutrageous bar, they're just amazing.
The give away is open from today until 18th Sept, just fill in the rafflecopter widget and leave me a comment with your email address or twitter name so I can contact you if you win. Good luck!
