The sun is shining,
Oh, happy days,
Life’s little treasures,
Coming in various ways.
In between trying to really challenge myself by taking on as many projects at once, I have had a few minutes to sit down and actually get back to my I Heart Paris book, part of the I Heart book series. I have finished the first two and on the third book now. If only there was more time in the day as I really want to finish the series before I go to America.
As part of my secret guilty pleasures, I watched Made in Chelsea. Shhh, don’t tell anyone. It’s the only English show I have ever watched. There is something about it’s awkward silences and too posh accents that keeps me intrigued. This week I was rooting that the rumors weren’t true about cheating Alex! All I will say, in case you haven’t had a chance to catch up, is I hope Binky’s Momma annihilates him soon!
As I went through a flashback to share Missy Moo’s birth story, I came upon this video of her only hours old and snoring. I have never laughed so hard in my life that such a noise could come from such a tiny new form of life. At the time I was worried that something was really wrong but the midwife assured me it was normal and would go away.
On my new eat healthier, drink healthier, be healthier 2014 challenge, I have been having smoothie boosters for breakfast each morning. It helps kick start my metabolism and really starts my day making me feel good. Click the picture for the recipe. Anything can be thrown in, so you can have a different flavor everyday.
I am completely obsessed with #littlebird from Mothercare. I bought this gorgeous dress for Missy Moo for the summer along with a thin green cardigan. I loved it online and even more when I put it on her. So I have gone back and bought a few more from the brand for our upcoming vacation to America. It was the first time I have ever bought clothes from Mothercare and I have to say won’t be my last.
I am so very excited to share that I have made the SHORTLIST for the BiBs for FRESH VOICE!!! I can’t believe it. I never thought in my first year so many amazing things could happen for Let’s Talk Mommy. I am so very honored and grateful to be among so many great bloggers who I admire so much. If you have a moment would love you to vote for me!

I just love MM’s dress so much! I want it in Emma size! 🙂 And go you with the breakfast smoothies – so healthy! I’m taking healthy inspiration from you, lovely. And it goes without saying that I am De-lighted about the BiBs my sweet – very well deserved indeed xxx
Ahhh Emma you are always so good to me. Thanks for all the support. I still can’t believe it. Yes I am trying to eat healthier, and exercise more as well as challenge my brain. But somedays are better than others. lol
The snoring is hilarious, the dress is just gorgeous and I’m thinking the smoothy would be a great way to get a couple of five a days in and some iron with all that spinach. #PoCoLo
Yes definitely on the smoothie. That’s why i do it everyday. Helps keep me balanced. lol The snoring is hilarious I still laugh so hard when I hear it. It was hard to sleep though. hahaha

Congratulations on the Bibs nomination, that’s great news 🙂 #PoCoLo
Thank you Gina so much. It’s a big honor to see my name on that list. It’s been a great first year for my blog. I never expected to even get shortlisted. Amazing.
Ooh! I’m going to try that smoothie!! x
Do it’s so good for you. Even my kids love it.
Not A Frumpy Mum says
That dress is too cute, boys clothes are just never quite as adorable are they?
Well done you on the healthy smoothie and huge congrats on the Bibs nominations, very well deserved lovely xxx
Thanks for the congrats. I am so ecstatic. I know I wish the dress came in my size. No you are so right boys clothes are never never as good. I am so much more picky about Bubas clothes than missy moos.
That dress is so cute. The more I see of the Little Bird range the more I love it.
Congratulations on making it to the Bibs shortlist xx
Thank you so much Lauren. I am still in shock. But thrilled. Yes I never had heard of it. Matter of fact I have never bought any clothes from Mothercare until now but it definitely won’t be my last.

I love Made in Chelsea, and I love the Little Bird range, they do such lovely clothes fpr both boys and girls. Congrats on the BIBs shortlist too!
Thank you so much Becky. I am so excited. Yes agreed I just bought some little birds for my son too! So excited for our upcoming holiday. Made in Chelsea is the only english show I watch I usually stick to my american shows being american I struggle to understand certain accents but there is something oddly obsessive about it. lol Maybe all the awkward pause…. hahaha
