It’s Friday! I am not sure how we are at the weekend already. This week seems to have flown by and I don’t know what I have really accomplished. I am ok to see February flying by it’s my least favorite month of the whole year. I have been trying to make the most of it by getting into Pancake day and Valentine’s Day two holidays where I really haven’t done much in the past but giving them a go this year has been a nice change to February.
Once again I have yet to pick up a good book to read but have been reading blog posts galore. It’s great to have Share With Me blog hop because I get to read such a variety of blogs and topics each week. There seems to be a bit of a theme lately in the post that I read and I do wonder why as mothers we don’t all support each other fully especially in those tough times and stop judging others so much. We are all working towards the same aim to raise our children the best way we know possible. So I start with two great posts about this and end with what it should be about fun snow days!
Potty Mouthed Mummy: Before You Post
Collecting Moments: The One That Supports
Our Baby Blog: Snow Day!
This week I haven’t been listening to much music but I have been hearing my children constant whining about the littlest things. Is it just me? Is it just a phase? I really hope so. My mental health is holding on to the fact that it will soon pass. I know Buba just needs to get out more and run about and Missy Moo has been with a temperature and a running nose but my patience levels seems to have checked out completely.
We were ever so excited to experience our very first movie theatre experience this week with Buba and our very first day just me and him since Missy Moo was born. I know how sad is that in almost two years it hasn’t just been the two of us. We had a blast and Buba was mesmerized by the big screen and Shaun the Sheep movie.
Buba and I were strutting our scarves for our movie premiere and I am loving my leather jacket more lately even though I bought it about two years ago I wasn’t sure I could pull it off. Buba loved not having to wear a coat and wearing his fuzzy vest instead. I have to say I think it really suits him. Now if only he would stop stealing Daddy’s Ted Baker scarves like this one I bought Daddy for his birthday. The kids are getting to the age where they are using Daddy and Mommy’s stuff. I lost a handbag to MM just last week! I thought I had a few years until that all started. Guess not!
I made Valentine’s Day chocolate hearts for Mr P’s office staff. They loved it and were nice enough to donate a pound to charity for each one. I was having trouble with my camera lens so I was disappointed with my iphone food styling for this one but the cake turned out too yummy not to share. It’s the easiest recipe ever too for chocolate cake you can use all year round!
I am not a beauty blogger but I do like to look my best and this week I have been revamping some of my makeup and moving to bold and braver colors for my eyes. I also have been loving the new Younique fiber mascara. Forget those false lashes that fall off and eyelash extensions you are forever having to spend money to fill, I am all about the fiber mascara. It really has changed my whole look. I am offering one lucky reader the chance to WIN a Younique 3D fiber mascara kit too so you can try it out and see what the rave is all about.

Emma Kershaw says
I LOVE your leather jacket Jenny, you look amazing in it and Buba looks like such a little man in his scarf, he’s so cute. The cakes look amazing, I really want to bake now 🙂 xxx
Thanks Emma. I was always a bit scared of wearing it and lately it just seems to fit my style more than it did two years ago. lol Good thing I never threw it out. lol Buba does look so grown up with Daddy’s scarf on. lol Get baking girl tomorrow is Valentine’s day. Make the kiddos some chocolate cake.
Katie @mummydaddyme says
I love that photo of you and Buba. You look absolutely beautiful! xx
Ahh thanks Katie you are too kind. I wouldn’t go that far but it’s a favorite of mine. Wish I didn’t have a double chin in it. lol
Oooooo I love your leather jacket, you can totally pull it off! You look fab 🙂 I have yet to purchase one, I keep admiring them on other people, but just haven’t taken the plunge yet myself! Maybe one day 🙂
That was me and it still took me two years to wear it. I say go for it. Lol thanks hunny.
You an Buba look super with your jacket and scarves. My girls are always nicking my bags and bits and pieces, I think it just gets worse as they get older!
Oh great I will have to lock up our wardrobes. Haha thanks Hun. I think Buba look older with daddy’s scarf on.
Vikki Holness says
LOVE that photo of you and Buba, that leather jacket looks amazing on you and it’s so nice that you guys got to spend some one-on-one time with each other. I could literally devour those valentine’s chocolate hearts, they look scrummy! Everyone seems to be raving about that mascara, is it really that good? I’m desperate for a new one! Have a lovely weekend sweets xxx #LittleLoves
Oh yes get your entries in hunny. I wouldn’t ever rave about something I truly didn’t believe in. Honest. Thanks it’s one of my favorite photos of us. We had a great time. Thanks hunny
Glasgow Mummy says
Love the photo of you two… your leather jacket is fab as is the scarf. Those chocolate cakes look divine! Have a great week x
Thanks hunny. One of my faves minus my double chin. I blame those Valentine’s Day cakes.
mel @mydaysni says
I think the kids, much like ourselves, start to get cabin fever as the winter months drag on. At least that’s what I’m telling myself! You guys look lovely in your scarfs though – every cloud and all that! Have a great weekend x
Thanks hunny. Yes it’s one of my favorite photos of us. We had a blast. The kids definitely need to get out more. Cabin fever is awful for us all.
I love that photo of you and your gorgeous boy. Beautiful! x
Thanks Donna it’s one of my favorites for sure.
your cakes look fab – very inspiring! And you and Buba look very stylish on your day out together. I wish I had more opportunities to have a day out alone with JJ – it does feel like the older child does miss out on that one on one time once they have a sibling. Have a great weekend Jenny #littleloves
I know me too. Took me two years to hang out with just Buba and it will probably be another year again. Bless older siblings. Cake was delicious. Photos not so great but yummy so had to share.
I was just eying up a leather jacket. It looks super cute on you and erm…you do NOT have a big bottom! You both look adorable in that pic.
Those cake look divine!
Hope the kiddos are being good to you and you all have a great weekend x
Thanks hunny. Oh yes I do the coat hides it and I never photograph that bottom of mine. Eeek. Hahaha took me forever to get the courage to wear my leather jacket. Lol
A Cosy Cup of Life says
What a lovely post, as usual. So great that you and Buba had your cinema outing. Its so hard when you have two children and managing to find enough hours in the day/ week to have one on one time with them.
Your chocolate heart cakes look so yummy!!
I love your leather jacket, you really suit it. I ordered one last week, just waiting for it to arrive and am the same as you, wondering if I’ll be able to pull it off 🙂
Hope you and yours have a lovely weekend xx
Thanks darling. I bet you will look great in it. I think we all think we can’t pull it off but we do. Lol Buba and I are already planning our next day out. One on one is hard to do but so worth it.
It’s so lovely that you had a little date with your little man 🙂 those cakes look yummy! Have a great weekend xx
Thanks I know I am only sad it took almost two years to do it. Lol we had a blast.
Such a sweet photo of you and your little man! I haven’t yet taken my two boys to the movies but it is on the cards for this summer when the Minion Movie comes out (they love minions!). Also, getting around to revamping my makeup so will definitely enter your drawing 😉 Have a lovely weekend!
Good luck on the makeup front. Yes get them to the movies it was fantastic.
You both look lovely and glad you had a great time at the cinema! I totally agree with you on the children stealing our things – as cute as it can be at times they are mine!!! HAha! Great giveaway I have heard great things about Younique Mascara!
Thanks Hun. I know. Is anything ever ours anymore??? Hahaha
Not A Frumpy Mum says
Gorgeous photo of you and Buba, you both look beautiful. I’m taking O to the cinema for the first time tomorrow and I am so excited.
Your chocolate hearts looks scrummy! xx
Thanks hunny. Oh enjoy you will love it. I can’t wait to go again soon. That photo while nothing special I will cherish forever. It was our first day just me and Buba together after MM was born. Must do it more.
Morgana @ butwhymummywhy says
SUCH a gorgeous shot of you and Buba, Jenny! I love taking each of my girls on mummy dates, and the cinema is definitely one of our favourite places to go. I’ll have to show the girls your video. Hope you are having a good week lovely xx
Ahh thanks hunny. We should take them together sometime. It’s one of my Favorites of us. We had a great time. Oh yes show them the video. Hahaha they can be our fans. Lol
