Sharing the Blog Love – Showcase 57


A big welcome to our weekly #SharingtheBlogLove Showcase. I hope you all had a wonderful August and a great summer holiday. We had a lovely break – lots of fun adventures, despite the weather and illness getting in the way at times. Have your children started back at school yet? I hope it’s all gone smoothly – I can’t believe that it’ll be me waving Max goodbye this time next year!

If you’re new to #SharingtheBlogLove, these are mine and Laura’s favourite posts from last week’s linky. As part of the linky we’d like you to choose one post from each showcase post (one from mine and one from Laura’s) to head over to and leave a comment to show them some extra blog love. It’s always lovely to take a look at our featured posts this week and see how many extra comments they’ve had from you guys!

Old House in the Shires

We’ve not managed to afford a holiday yet this year – we’re off to Cornwall this month, but it’s felt a long time since we had a break in the sunshine. I loved the escapism of  Sophie’s blog post about her Trip to Kefalonia. Like so many people, I associate Kefalonia with Captain Correlli’s Mandolin, and her photos make it look like the perfect Greek idyll – turquoise seas, white sand, boat trips to deserted coves, and snorkelling adventures. It makes me want to hop on a plane right now and head off for some sunshine!


The Full Shilling

From dreaming about getting away, to a nostalgic look at where I used to live! I loved Alex’s post on her weekend trip to London. It covers so many spots, some well known like Carnaby Street and the Natural History Museum, but some of which are that little bit off the beaten track. Some great recommendations for London eateries, and some beautiful photos to boot!


Dear Mummy

I’ve wanted to go to a family festival for a while, but I’ll freely admit that I’m not a fan of camping, and not a fan of bad weather either.  So I loved Baby Isabella and Dawn’s review of Camp Bestival 2017 – because it proved that even in the wake of terrible weather, you’ll still have a good time! It’s clear from the photos that everyone was having an absolute blast, mud or no mud, and it looks like there was such a lovely laid back vibe to it all. Next year I’ll have a four and one year old – is that too ambitious to make next year our first festival do you think?


Me Becoming Mum

I’ve loved discovering all of the new baby products which have appeared on the market since I had Max – there are so many great inventions out there to make your life easier! I really enjoyed Naomi’s Newborn Baby Must Haves, not least because it includes so many that I’d highly recommend as well!


Did you catch any of these last time? If not, please head over and give them a read and a comment!
