Back To School, New Nails,Crochet Problems | Little Love 2016 2/52

Its Friday, and it can only mean one thing.. Little Love time. This is my favourite part of the week, it lets me reflect on all the little things I have loved.

This week has flew by. Already we are week two into January. I am still not in a routine just yet! Its been raining non-stop and has turned very cold! G and H are back at school and are very tired by the time I pick so its been early nights for everyone this week!

Without to much waffling, this is what I have been loving this week…


The first week into term is always inundated with newsletters, after school club sign up forms and what is expected this term from the school. This week has been no different!



I have finally managed to watch the rest of Homeland! It took us some time to complete the last series. I always get a little wayward half way through the season, but when it finishes I am always gutted its over. Its been left on a huge cliffhanger and I cannot wait for the next series!

I have silent witness on my planner {which I may or may not of watched by the time this goes live} I also want to watch the new Netflix thriller Making A Murderer.



To be honest I have not listened to much this week. Nothing that has really stood out anyway. I am still loving {whispers} Justin Bieber Love Yourself.


For christmas my mum bought me a new nail varnish and this week I finally got round to using it. Its Barry M Fuchsia Generation. Its one of my favourite nail varnishes by far and it went on so well!

I also bought some new boots from Dorothy Perkins. Huge fan of the ankle boot at the moment.




Last week I mentioned I started my new crochet project. Over the weekend I managed to get quite a bit done, it wasn’t until I realised that it actually wouldn’t cover me as I had made the starting chain to small! I had to unpick and start over and it wasn’t fun! It took me ages to get it right, I kept mis-counting stitches and I was so close to giving up but I finally got it right and I will have a wonderful large blanket at the end of it!

‘And lastly..’

    Loving the colour of that nail varnish, I’m a massive fan of the Barry M polishes so I’ll have to keep an eye out for this one.
    I’m actually listening to Justin Bieber from Not a Frumpy Mum’s Little Loves! His new stuff is so good isn’t?
    Have a lovely weekend xx

      His new stuff is so good! I was ashamed to admit it at first, but I don’t care now 😉 I got my mum to order the polish online, definitely one of my favourites! x

    OH I have been there so many times myself pulling out stitches and starting over. It’s painful but I bet it’s going to be amazing when it’s finished. Hope you had a lovely holiday break. Back to school and routines now. #littleloves

      I am still trying to find that routine! I just can’t seem to get into one! Was definitely worth unpicking the blanket!

    Love the colour of the nail varnish, so pretty and the quote too is just perfect. I think this month is going to shoot by now we are back into the routine after Christmas, unfortunately! Have a great week 🙂

      Judging by this week, I agree, it will be February before we know it!

    I haven’t crocheted in ages! I remember only too well the problems with miss counting! Love the nail varnish colour.

    Oh I am loving Justin Bieber at the moment his new stuff is fab! We have struggled this week with the school run and the miserable weather. I am just not feeling January at the moment. Have a lovely weekend x

    • January 8, 2016 / 8:30 pm

      The weather has been awful and it makes you want to stay in bed!

    Its been quite nice to get back to the routine of life but I totally agree about the onslaught of letters about clubs, trips etc. It seems everyone is watching Make a Murderer on Netflix. Think I need to have a look what its all about. Have a great weekend #littleloves

    • January 8, 2016 / 8:35 pm

      More letters came out today! All too much in the first week!

  7. January 8, 2016 / 8:57 pm

    Hate to admit it but I’m loving Justin Bieber at the moment too! Love that quote, so true! Have a lovely weekend x

    • January 9, 2016 / 8:37 am

      I am surprised Justin has converted me, I still shiver at HIS SONG “Baby” Definitely got better as he has got older {music wise!}

  8. January 8, 2016 / 9:06 pm

    I’m so with you on the newsletters thing, my son has brought one home everyday after school this week, it’s crazy!

    Homeland is one of my favourite programmes, it’s so gripping! x

    • January 9, 2016 / 8:35 am

      They should at least spread the newsletters out over the first few weeks! 😉 Homeland is so tense, definitely cannot wait for that restart!

  9. January 9, 2016 / 5:32 pm

    Firstly you’ve had a new design, I like it! Yes to the letters and I am partial to a little Biever myself at the minute x

    • January 10, 2016 / 8:54 am

      Thank you, just a tiny tweak, its nice that people notice.. I am preparing my self for going self hosted next week!

    Love the nail varnish colour, looks lovely and you don’t need to whisper your Justin Bieber love, be proud! I love Silent Witness, although I still miss Harry a bit even if I can’t quite remember why he left. Have a lovely week. xx

    • January 10, 2016 / 8:53 am

      I have only just started on Silent Whitness {I started watching it the last series for the first time} I love Emilia Fox!

    Homeland is one on my list for sure. It pops up when I’m watching Nashville as something I would like haha. That nail polish is lovely, I have lots of the Barry M ones, they’re great aren’t they? So many beautiful colour choices and they go on so well and are really affordable. I like that everyone’s getting into Justin Bieber now. I love that he was never too far gone (on the tween list) for everyone to come around full circle. I’m pretty clueless with new music as we just don’t get out enough, but I love discovering things on here too xxx have a great week

    • January 11, 2016 / 1:23 pm

      Oh you should watch Homeland.. So good! I’m a Nashville fan too! Thanks for popping by xx
