Now that I don’t live in London anymore, I like to stalk it on Instagram instead. There are so many beautiful spots and when I saw the beautiful Saint Aymes cafe a couple of weeks back I knew it was somewhere I had to visit – wisteria draped across the front, floral walls inside, and gold lattes. It’s all just beautiful. And what would you wear to visit such a place but gold? I loved Maria’s post Wearing Gold For Saint Aymes London – beautiful fashion picks against a stunning backdrop.
I have no gift for poetry at all, but every week I love The Rhyming Mum’s poems. I’d Do Anything For You was just perfect – lighthearted, heartfelt, sweet, and so so relateable. Do head over and have a read of this one – it’s just all round lovely!
Before I had children I was so organised! I never realised quite how difficult things get when children come along – suddenly it takes me at least half an hour to leave the house even after I thought we were all ready! We’ve all been there – they need the toilet, they can’t find their shoes, they want a snack… It’s endless! How To Leave The House (With Kids) lays it all out for you and it’s a funny and relateable read.
I’m not a great fan of the parenting labels, but I did like this post: What Is Attachment Parenting And How We Stumbled Into It. I think we naturally all find our own parenting style and we find our way, often finding it has a label later on. I very much gravitate towards the attachment parenting side of things – I don’t like to leave my baby to cry, I’m happy to cuddle, I like to carry them, and I’m happy for them to be little while they’re little. But I don’t think I’d heard of attachment parenting until much later on, and if I’d read about it in a book before having children, I’m not sure I’d have thought it was for me. But once you have a real life baby, your instincts kick in. I really liked Ross’s summary of the choices they’ve made as parents and how they’ve worked for them.
Did you catch any of these last time? If not, please head over and give them a read and a comment.
