Great quality bedding with JD Williams

When it comes to making changes to how our bedroom looks , as well as gorgous new accessories such as frames, prints and little trinkets great quality bedding is one of the things that comes to my mind. When renting you are not able to do much to your home so a bedding set is an ideal and simple way to change how your bedroom looks. By going for a new colour sceheme and/or pattern it can brighten up your bedroom no end.

I love spending time In our bedroom as its my favourite place to relax with a book, listen to music or just chill out before going to sleep. There is nothing better than when it comes to bed time getting into bed on fresh clean sheets especially when they looking great too. This is why when it comes to bedding its important that its great quality and that's where JD Williams comes in.

I was sent the Ryley Duvet cover set in blush and I'm in love with the set. The set is definitely a different design than what I usually go for as I tend to opt for florals however when I was browsing the selection JD Williams offer I found myself being drawn to the geometric print. The shades of grey go perfectly with the blush making it stylish and modern. 

The bedding of course is great quality and is easy to wash which is a must as we don't want bedding that shrinks easily.  Price wise its affordable too with a single being £15, double £20 and kingsize £25. The set is also reversible which I really like and features a different sized Geometric print on each side. The set is also available in a gorgeous teal colour which I wish I had as well and you can also purchase matching curtains if you wish. 

This set is the second bedding I own from JD Williams and I'm very impressed with their designs as well as the quality and cost.

Half term, Converse and These Shallow Graves #LittleLoves

This week with it being half term has been a busy but fun one. With soft play, lunch with friends, visiting my mum, pancakes, Valentine's and more. I've loved making memories to look back on however I'm looking forward to getting back into a routine next week. 


These shallow graves by Jennifer Donnelly
I've recently started this book and am slowly getting into it. I need to make more time to read this coming week now that half term is nearly over. I've definitely wasted too much of my free time scrolling through Facebook though. The story is about a wealthy family, a deadly secret and a young woman with more to lose than she knows. The story is based in New York during the 1890's.

The little book of inspiration by Lucy Lane 
Whatever dream you are working towards, a few wise words can help a daunting challenge seem manageable. This uplifting little book is packed with inspiring quotations and simple but effective tips to help you get the most out of every day. This is such a lovely little book to dip in and out of when you need a little pick me up.


We've managed to watch a few films together this week which has been lovely.
The first we watched was cars 3, Blake is really into lightning McQueen at moment and owns many cars related toys and clothing. The second film we watched was Boss baby which I just really loved as its such a funny and family friendly film. Last of all Stuart and I watched the new IT film on Valentine's evening. I wasn't too sure what to expect as I've never watched the original version or read the book. I have to add that I do have a fear of clowns however I didn't find the film scary at all, it was good though.

Blake has been humming to the baby shark song below so we decided to find it on YouTube for him listen to. It will get stuck in your head, you can thank me later.


With it being half term we planned a few days out this week to keep Blake entertained. We started with soft play on Monday, lunch out on Tuesday with friends and visiting my mum on Thursday. 


I've finally got a new pair of glasses and can see much better! My eyes had changed and Specsavers messed up my new pair so I opted to get a refund and go elsewhere. This meant waiting longer however I'm happy with my new pair.

I've also been wearing a new pair of converse pumps that I have been sent to review. They are so comfy and I'll definitely be wearing them more once spring/summer arrives. They are perfect for busy mums like myself as I can throw them on with any outfit and they will go perfectly for everyday. 

And lastly....

There is a few days left for you to enter my competition to win a My Fairy Unicorn Garden

I love this idea as it sounds a fun way to get children being more creative and use there imagination.

My post this week is from the archives as its half term and I'm super busy with keeping Blake entertained amongst other things. I've picked a post from about 2 years ago now of our experience of visiting the sea life centre in London. We had a lovely time there and would definitely go again in the future. It's a great place to drop by if you happen to be going to London this week with the kids.
