Little Loves February

Another month has officially flown by. More birthday celebrations, Valentine's day and a wedding anniversary have been celebrated. It has been busy as usual and packed with lots of memories and of course little loves.



You all know I love a good read. One of my favourites from this last month was one from Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane is fantasy and at its best, this author manages to create worlds that expand your imagination and really draw you in!


An absolute favourite for both myself and my husband last month was The Crown on Netflix. It was an interesting watch and actually had us researching more behind the history of the Royals as we watched. There was a lot that we didn't know.


Something that I heard was my now seven year old daughter singing and African song with the rest of her class. It was fantastic how they managed to learn all of the words and sing together. They've been learning all about Africa and the country's cultures etc and this was a great way to showcase something that they'd learned.



Ok technically this happened at the end of last month but I really wanted to show off my latest cake creation. My nine year old requested a cupcake cake for her birthday and I was determined to make it rather than simply buy one. She is really partial to pic n mix so it was of course decorated in sweets.



I really wanted these shoes from ASOS but when I finally had the money for them they had sold out, how lucky was I to find them on eBay and £10 cheaper than on ASOS too. Got to love a bargain!

And lastly...


I just wanted to show off this lovely piece of stationery from Busy B. I've always been terrible at remembering birthdays and with so many more being added each year I thought it was finally time to start writing them all down. This folder not only allows me to keep track of all of the dates, it also has pockets to allow me to store birthday cards bought in advance.

What have you all been loving this month, care to share in the comments below?
