Welcome to my weekly gratitude list where I share all the every day moments that have made me happy and made me appreciate life, No matter how mundane life can sometimes feel, there’s always so much to be grateful for which is why I collate these gratitude lists every week! 

This is what made me happy this week:

~ New friendships ~

Last Saturday I met the gorgeous Alisa from the UKYankee blog and even though we hadn’t met before, we had a great chatter on the train to Birmingham where we were heading for the NEC Baby Show.

~ Networking ~

A word that I had never liked the sound of when doing for work but I loved meeting a few brands at the Baby Show and exchanging contact details. Blogging has definitely helped me overcome the fear of making that initial contact/ starting the conversation and overcoming my shyness. I also went to a pop up shop organised by the Soil Association for their Organic Beauty & Wellbeing Week last week, and also met and chatted to a few brands which was fab. I bought a few skincare goodies which I can’t wait to test out and let you know all about them!

~ The sunshine ~

I mean, come on, we just can’t complain about the heat, people, because you just never know how long it’ll last! So take off your clothes (just kidding obvs!!) if you’re too hot and just enjoy it 🙂

~ Family day out ~

We went to London for the day last Sunday and it was a fab day out. Leo loved going to the National Museum and Trafalgar Square although he was very disappointed there were no pigeons there. We were relieved on the other hand 🙂

~ Running my first ever giveaway ~

So exciting to have teamed up with my favourite natural beauty online shop LoveLula – you can still enter the giveaway until 11 June 2017 in order to win a £50 box full of natural skincare goodies.

~ He said “Mama”! ~

I repeat people: Max said “Mama”!! I have no idea whether he wanted to address me (I doubt it!) but I loved it none the less and will be practicing this with him from now on 🙂 It was such a lovely moment!

~ Photo shoot photos ~

We got our photos from the photoshoot we attended a couple of weeks ago and I love them, especially the ones with the boys as they look absolutely adorable! See them for yourselves 🙂

  1. Your photos are adorable! So sweet that Max has said Mama! My daughter sort of says it, but I’m also not quite sure if she’s addressing me or not, she says it quite randomly! xx #HappyDaysLinky

  2. Sounds like a really lovely week, those pictures ares adorable. It’s such a precious moment when they finally say our name. My son said it at 6 months, my daughter on the other hand said everything but until around 18 months!
