New blog design, Black Friday, The White Company #littleloves

Happy Black Friday! Yup, it’s that crazy day those Americans made to make a good excuse for a discounted shopping day before Christmas. I think, it’s a fantastic idea to get all those gadgets and presents on sale instead of paying full price but I know just as many dislike it as well. I have fond memories of spending Thanksgiving with family and then gathering with all my friends to hit the shops the next day for it. I have scored some major sales on black friday so it will always be a favorite day for me. I love seeing that it’s now happening all over the world even without the holiday Thanksgiving before it. It’s the best transition from our Thanksgiving celebrations to Christmas festivities. I always put my Christmas decorations up the next day too. I can’t wait to get them up this year.coffee

THIS WEEK WE ARE LOVING…

I have been trying to read blogs that I don’t often get to read on a regular basis but still love so much as well as stay loyal to the blogs I have been reading for years now. It’s hard to find balance as I would love to support everyone on ever post if I could. Here are a few I am reading and loving this week: The Diary of Midlife Mummy, Mummy and Monkeys, Pouting In Heels, Mummyofboygirltwins, TwinkleDiaries, Stressy Mummy, Mr and Mrs T Plus three and so many more… I think I was reading the last few nights way passed midnight on these blogs.

Have you heard? Let’s Talk Mommy and Share With Me had a total makeover. One that was very needed and I have been working on with a lovely creative lady since the beginning of summer. It’s so amazing to finally have it up and feel more like me. I have always loved my blog like my second baby but I was never in love with the look of it until now. It’s everything I wanted even if by the time I got it up so many others have similar elements to their blog. I love how many now have instagram bottoms that was one of my must haves. Instagram has to be my favorite social media ever. I love that I can scroll to most blog’s bottom now and see a whole display of their photos. I have started following more instagram accounts because of it. I hope people will do the same with mine too. What do you think of the new look? Do you like the new Share With Me badge? Don’t forget you don’t always have to link up to Share With Me blog hop, it’s a great way to just read a variety of new blogs all in one place too!

As recommended from our lovely host Morgana, I have started watching How to get away with Murder on netflix. I love any kind of lawyer/law show so we are loving this one. We also have been finishing up season five of Suits. So in love with it still after so many seasons. Our friends are trying to get us started on Breaking Bad but not sure it is my cup of tea…any suggestions?

I have been getting cozy this week with big sweaters, Ugg boots, scarves that kind of resemble a potato sack here. lol It hasn’t been so much about what looks good but what is comfortable. Our house has been torn apart with builders, dust and my wardrobe contents have been in the hallway for over a week and sleeping on couches while my walk-in closet is finished. Thus, my excuse to dress grubby. Except for one at Blogfest with the lovely Katie, got to dress for the bump next to me. πŸ™‚

    • Oh bless you that’s awful. I know the feeling I have made little effort before I had kids in the uk but I felt this year it really did feel like Thanksgiving. We had my whole family on facetime with us too and a feast and it was the first time I didn’t feel I wasn’t home.

    • Oh I will have to have a look. Thanks Sian, and thanks for the lovely compliments. I love it so much and so much more proud to show it to people than before where I hated the look of it.

    • The cheesecakes came out too good I ate way too much solo. Best slippers ever got them years ago from Next like socks with shoe bottoms. Brilliant. Glad you like the new blog design. I was so excited to share it. Have a lovely weekend yourself babes.

  1. What a beautiful round up. Loving your new look and oh my goodness food to deserve putting on an extra pound or two with!! Have a wonderful day and a successful trip to ikea xx

    Reply
    • Oh yes it was all worth it for Thanksgiving. Although that usually starts me off on a food frenzy from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Eeek Thanks Ikea was a success but sadly spent way too much as usual.

  2. I hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving, and its so hard keeping up with blogs isn’t it? Sometimes I realise I haven’t read a blog I love in ages, life has just got in the way. And I love the new look it looks fantastic x

    • Oh yes so time consuming but love it. I am constantly trying to keep up and be loyal to those that support me as well as read my faves too. Glad you like the new look.

    • Thank you so much Maria… Good luck on winning the advent calendar we love ours and the mug I wish I would have bought a whole set of them last year as every year it’s different from starbucks and these are my fave.

    • Ahhh thanks KA, it’s way more my style and personality and too many were complaining that the grey was hard to read on my last one so more user friendly. πŸ™‚

  3. Love, love, love your make over! and so pleased that you are so happy with it! Arrrgh. How amazing does all that food sound? I think I might start celebrating Thanksgiving – any excuse to be thankful and eat food ey? I don’t mind Black Friday if you celebrate Thanksgiving. I think it’s weird that the Brits take the commercial side, but leave the meaningful side behind. Heading over to read your cheesecake recipe now…. πŸ˜‰ Happy Weekend! xx

    • Ahhh thank you darling so kind of you. I am sooo happy with it. It’s way more me and my personality than the last one. You should after all it’s the american indians helping the uk pilgrims harvest the land and survive both countries should celebrate it to be honest. lol Agree though weird you have Black Friday for making money but not the day to give thanks. Happy weekend to you too lovely.

  7. I really like How to Get Away with Murder! Mr U really liked Breaking Bad – I watched about 3 episodes and knew it wasn’t going to be my thing. Interested to hear if you like it?!

    Reply
    • I am loving it too but hubby watches it with me and I am always waiting for him to have free time to watch the next episode. I am tempted to skip ahead shhh don’t tell him. I don’t think Breaking Bad will be my tea either but might have to test it out. Will let you know.

      Reply
    • Oh the cheesecakes were amazing we all ate way too many of them too quick. Glad you like the new look. Loving it myself have hated my own theme so bad for so long. Have a lovely week and thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  8. I wish we had thanksgiving here it is such a lovely tradition, agree Black Friday is good if you’re organised with present buying (I am so not!)

    Thank you so much for the mention, it’s hard keeping up with all the blog reading isn’t it? I’ve been trying to comment more as although I often read I don’t always comment! So here I am! Hope you’re having a great week x

  9. I love the new look Jenny, it’s so pretty! I have just added How To Get Away With Murder to my Netflix viewing list but need to finished the 3rd series of Orange Is The New Black first. I predict a bit of Netflix bingeing over the Christmas hols. xxx

    • Thank you ever so much Jo. I am so happy with it. I have waited so long to find a look and style I wanted and liked that fit me to a t and I think this one does it. hahaha Oh yes it’s a good one to add. Although haven’t had much time to catch up on on it lately. Netflix binge over christmas sounds amazing.

  10. The new design is lovely. I remember when I got mine done, saw the final results and did a happy dance. It’s weird how getting your own beautiful space on the Internet just so makes you happy. Have a lovely week πŸ™‚
