Rising Temperatures, Tattoo Fixers, Failed Eton Mess… Little Love 27/52

Happy Friday peeps… Another week has passed and its time for another little catch up with all the lovely bloggers that link up with Morgana and their #littleloves

This week we have seen the UK have the hottest day ever in July. It was way too much for me and it reached a scorching 38.5° in my car! I was melting!!

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


I really need to pick up a book and throw myself into it this summer. I love blog reading but sometimes all you need is a good ole book! Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! I have a 6 hour journey in a few weeks so I could do with a few good reads to occupy myself!


This week I watched The Tattoo Fixer.. Now I have two tattoos and although it took some umming and ahhing on what to get I am really pleased with how they both turned out. I sat watching this programme with my mouth wide open. It was horrendous and I cannot believe there are people out there that 1. Let their friends tattoo them and 2. Go to a dodgy tattooist.. You are putting your faith in their hands at the end of the day!!


I also watched Kingsman: The Secret Service.. Now I found the whole film a little bizarre. It started well, then went off in the middle and then ended ok. I found myself wondering how it got to the end, it didn’t really explain about the “baddy” part I was a bit confused.. Thats my opinion though!


I feel slightly embarrassed about these two songs I am showcasing this week as 1. Both selections are 10 years younger than me and 2. They are annoying pop groups/girls.. Moo loves both songs and she is constantly singing away to them and making me play them via spotify { music has now been released too which could be interesting!} Anyway… Apologies… {The first is a duet, so I don’t feel so bad about that!}


Oh what haven’t I worn? Its been so hot I have lived in skirts and shorts. When I get home I am in the shower and in a fine playsuit.. Its been lovely but maybe a tad too hot for me! {I like the 25° mark!}


I made {failed miserable} an Eton Mess.. I have wanted one for a while and decided to make my own. When we went to eat it the meringues had melted! So it was literally sweet cream.. It was edible but I wanted the crunch for the meringues! Will have to try again {good excuse for another!}

‘And lastly..’

This weekend is my birthday and tonight I am off out on a date with Mr B.. Its been ages since we have been out childfree so I am really looking forward to it {we even have a cab booked!!} Saturday I go and retrieve the children form my mums and we are staying for a BBQ, the Sunday {my birthday} we are of to Mr B’s parents. It going to be lovely weather wise so I am really looking forward to it!

I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead!

    I’m not one for Eton Mess, I don’t like meringue ha. I think I’ll avoid Kingsman! Have a wonderful weekend lovely xxx

      Thanks lovely! I had never tried Eton Mess before up until a few weeks ago, I doubt I will make it again though #completefailure Will stick to ordering at restaurants!

    The mister watched Kingsman the other week while I was a way and said it was defo aimed at teenage boys, so obviously being the overgrown kid that he is, he loved it! Haha
    Have a lovely weekend xx

      Yes, Mr B quite enjoyed too! It was a bit jokey jokey and not really my thing!

    I caught a bit of the tattoo programme the other day and couldn’t believe that people would allow their friends to tattoo them while they were both drunk. You’re asking for trouble really!
    Have a fab night out tonight and a wonderful birthday weekend xx

    25 degrees is my optimum temp too! I can handle hotter in other countries where you can just lie next to the pool but not in this country where no-one even has air con! x

      I always say, it’s a different kind of heat here than abroad, it’s a muggy type, but abroad is completely different! I can cope abroad!

  8. July 3, 2015 / 9:26 pm

    Ha ha I like 25 degrees too, although after living abroad it’s my ‘cold’. I think Eton Mess usually works better made right at the last minute with shop bought meringues or with home made ones as they have that chewier texture – made me really hungry just thinking of Eton Mess, I love it! Have a great night out and Happy Birthday! x
