5 Things I Love (February 2017)

This month has been a little more productive blog wise and has been filled with more adventures than January was.  I really think hard work is paying off.  It’s certainly brought some new things in to my life like the first item on my list of things I am loving this month.


One of my blogging goad this year was to save up any money I made blogging and purchase a MacBook. This month I chased up a few invoices I was due and I purchased this little beauty. I am so happy with this purchase and wonder now why I didn’t get one before now. It’s so much quicker than my old laptop and means I can take myself off to a local coffee shop to work. This has two pluses; firstly it means I’m not distracted and secondly I get to drink some lovely hot chocolates whilst using someone’s else’s energy to keep warm.   Can’t beat that in my opinion!


Cath Kidston Goodies


This month I treated myself to a couple of things from the new Cath Kidston Spring collections. I have fell in love with this lovely duck range and adore the oversized cup and saucer.

Seasonal Flowers


I am loving filling my house with tulips and iris’. This is one thing I love about this time of year and tulips have to be my favourite flower. 

Pretty Stationary


I’m just a sucker for pretty stationary. I love note books and pretty coloured pens. The fact that my handwriting is appalling is a completely different matter!



I’ve been enjoying making (and eating) shortbread this month. Recipe will be up on the blog soon. Recommended with a nice cup of tea, your feet up and snuggled under a blanket. Can’t go wrong.

What are you living right now?

    Ohh! Well done on purchasing the Macbook! I dream of owning one…
    I have been banned from shopping in Cath Kidston….hehehe Everything is so pretty.
    I will look forward to seeing the shortbread recipe. I love the stuff. Making my own has to be cheaper than buying a box every week. x

    Reading this post, I have to say you have excellent taste! Love the irises, the pretty things from Cath Kidston, the stationery, it all just makes the world a bit brighter and more spring-like, doesn’t it?

    I find it a treat to head to a coffee shop also to write. Different atmosphere and energy. Looks like you had a great February and let it roll into March.

    Ooo, that shortbread looks delish! I’m currently loving the Lindt chocolate sticks hubby brought home last night (lovely gift from a customer). Happy almost Spring!
