Little Loves October

October, where did you go. Halloween is almost here and then they'll be Bonfire night. I don't feel like I've had time to love too many things this month. I haven't loved the darker mornings and the cold that hits you when you get out of bed but the colourful leaves and the cosy feeling I get in the evenings sort of balance that out.


I've not had a lot of time to read many books myself this month however I've been reading Toto, The Dog Gone Amazing Story of The Wizard of Oz to my youngest daughter each night, the illustrations in it are just wonderful.



Finally got around to watch The Handmaid's Tale, what a programme, I now need to read the book.


The new Foo Fighters album, need I say more!


I made this rather scrummy chocolate, orange cognac cake, you can find the recipe here.



I couldn't resist these lovely fluffy slippers from B&M because well unicorns!


And lastly...

Can we just take a moment to appreciate the wonder that is the pumpkin spice latte because soon it will disappear for another year.


And when I can't get to Starbucks I'm popping this pumpkin spice flavoured Baileys in my coffee, just as tasty. You can pick up your own bottle from



  1. I agree, the cosiness of autumn evenings balances out the dreadful mornings. Ah, The Handmaid's Tale! You will love it, then will want to read all of Margaret Atwood's books. Blessed be the fruit.

  2. Do you know I have never ever tried a pumpkin spice latte ! I must remedy that. I love your slippers, unicorns need I say more. That cake looks amazing, I bet it tasted amazing too. Have a great weekend x #LittleLoves

  3. The new Foo Fighter's album is so good isn't it? We've had it playing very loud in the car for the last few weeks!
    Loving the slippers, if I had some they'd get stolen by my kids. Maybe getting us all some would work ;)
    Have a great weekend! xx

  4. Love your unicorn slippers! Amazing! I love orange and chocolate so definitely going to have to check out the recipe! Have a wonderful weekend, popping over from Little Loves

  5. That cake looks amazing and I love your unicorn slippers too x #LittleLoves

  6. OMG that cake! And those slippers are pretty damn amazing too! I'm so late to the party with the whole pumpkin spice thing, I've never tried it. Have a great week x
