Sorry for the slight blog hiatus, but as you might guess from the title of this blog post, we’ve had a little bit going on! Finally, after months of trying, my husband and I own a flat in London!

How to sneakily celebrate Christmas now, #3

It’s become a bit of a tradition, this post. Every year, as soon as I’ve thrown away my mouldy old pumpkin, I’m overcome with the urge to deck the halls – but am stopped by so-called SENSIBLE people claiming it isn’t Christmas until such arbitrary dates as 1st December (some say 24th December – who are you monsters?) and therefore I am forced to be SECRETLY FESTIVE. Here are my first two posts, if you haven’t read them:

You wouldn't think I'd be able to force any more cheer into November, would you? Aha, my friend, you are wrong. And so, without further ado, here are another, even sneakier 10 ways to bring a bit of festive cheer into your lives without making your nearest and dearest think you’ve, you know, gone a bit nuts and think you’re living in a Home Alone film. Enjoy, you can thank me later when you’re in a secret world of Christmas bliss.

The perfect Autumn/Winter rose gold phone cover from Case Company

Things I hate about my iPhone currently:

1.  Having low storage. Seriously guys – I see the message ‘You have low storage’ or ‘Storage full’ more than I see my close friends and family. What are we going to do about these iPhone storage problems?! Surely we can’t go on like this???

2. The fact that Depop has half downloaded but due to the above storage issues I can’t open it and yet I can’t delete it either, and so I can’t stalk inthefrow on Depop or try and buy her designer shoes for £30. Cry.

Things I do not hate about my iPhone currently:

1. My gorgeous new phone cover*. I mean. Just look. (Ignore the champagne. But it was a Sunday so why not...)

Little life loves this week

 This week, I’ve FINALLY started to recover from the flu! If you’ve noticed a bit of an absence over the last few weeks it’s because I’ve been majorly suffering – literally bed bound for four whole days, it has been the opposite of fun and I’m so relieved to be coming out the other side! It’s actually put me in a brilliant mood, so here are the many things I’ve been loving this week…(note the absence of Donald Trump and the John Lewis advert...)

Welcome to the world, little one

On 1st November 2016, at 5.11am, after a long and intense labour, my sister brought little baby Alexander Digby Gordon into the world, weighing an impressive 10lb 5oz, and capturing everyone’s hearts immediately. (As well as making sure that my husband’s birthday – also the 1st November – would become a bit secondary forevermore!)
