Wow, I really can’t believe we are in June now in 2014! 23 weeks into the year and my how fast is has passed us by. I am joining in with the lovely Butwhymummywhy to capture the #litleloves of the week, because life really does go by fast and it’s great to cherish the little things in life. Reminding us that small and simple can be just as great.
We are really getting into our Parragon Books, always great to be a #bookbuddy. The Three Little Dinosaurs Egg Rescue fast became Buba’s new favorite book and we haven’t put it down. Honestly, I was really impressed with the story and illustrations too. Definitely great for baby and toddlers. Click the photo to see the full review. A lot of Parragon books are for the really little tykes like Missy Moo but we were excited to get one for Buba’s age. Bookworms here, always reading in this house!
I had the pleasure to get out for a girlie night with my best friend, S, we decided to grab a bite to eat and go to the movies. I haven’t been for a while now and I have been dying to see The Other Woman with Cameron Diaz. I am so glad we did. I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard at a movie. There are so many great parts that had me belly laughing and one point I even cry laughed. Mostly because at one point Cameron Diaz rolls her ankle in the sand and has to drag her leg down the beach while chasing someone and I envisioned this is what I looked like when I did my 10k run the other week and my knee gave out. To the regular audience this probably wasn’t the belly busting moment but for me it certainly was thinking, “I looked like that near the finish line.” Whispering to my best friend next to me, “that was me!” I definitely recommend it if you are in the mood for a great chic flick.
I was on the lookout for my BritMum’s outfits when I scoped this summer dress out at Next. I have my upcoming America trip where it will be up to 100 degrees for two months so I thought it would work perfect for my vacation and so did the price. My BritMums shopping trip quickly turned into my vacation shopping trip, snapping up two other dresses while in Next as well. Loving their range this season. Still haven’t found my BritMum’s outfits yet but at least I scored a few dresses for America.
And let’s not forget the lovely guest of honor last Sunday at her 1st birthday slash Christening party. For her christening she adorned a gown made out of my very own wedding dress, compliments to my extremely talented mother who made it. I cried when I saw Missy Moo in it. And of course what’s an outfit if it didn’t have a gorgeous headband to match, that a friend made for me. She looked absolutely stunning. I know you are all waiting in anticipation for party photos, ran out of room on my computer so waiting for an external hard drive to arrive so I can download them all. I was disappointed in the lighting in the room it was so sunny outside it made it very dark inside, so I am praying there are a few keepers!

I made this lovely scrumptious Summer Berry Pavlova this week. I have made it few times but I think this time I got it to it’s absolute perfection change the recipe I used to use ever so slightly. Click the picture and see for yourself.
With the lovely weather shining bright, we finally got to go for a family hike near where we live. It’s a stunning location and I am mad that it took us this long to stumble upon it with the kids. But it definitely won’t be the last. We had a blast and afterwards enjoyed a lovely lunch at the cafe together. There is nothing better than family time!
