making little dreams come true

Elsa "Frozen" cape






Ever since poppy was a tiny baby she loved frozen!
She would watch it at least 3 times a day! Nowadays 
She just prefers to listen to the soundtrack and loves any frozen related toy. When I looked in the shops for elsa dresses, they never had anything in her size, she's very pettite for her age so finding clothes can be challenging as she still in 9-12months/12 months.
I had been wanting to do something with my sewing machine for Poppy for a while and finally found the time to make her very own elsa cape. 
I used some gorgeous blue organza fabric with silver snow flakes that sparkle when  the light catches it, silver ribbon to tie up with two fluffly pom poms 
Poppy absolutely loved her cape for dress up.
She wouldn't even take it off while having her lunch, and would dance around her room with it on.
Something like these just shows you don't need to buy expensive things for your little one. When you're on a budget and they grow up so quickly, you want to make sure that you get the most use out of all their things. 

I hope you enjoyed the read 
Lots of love

not another autumn post

autumn is here...
Cosy, fluffy blankets are on the top of my list, although I keep them out all year round, I do have a basket in the front room to keep them stored both the grey and brown are from Primark at only £5 each. The crochet red and white one was hand made by a family member for poppy.

- Scents around the house have to be sweet and fresh but I do like the apple and cinnamon smells for autumn and winter plus a few Yankee candles ( Christmas cookie is my favourite).

- A new bag! I try to have a bag for every season but I change my mind all the time, this year I've gone for a cross over bag with gorgeous embroidery detail and guess what? It was only £7 from primark. Bonus! 
- I can finally bring out my favourite boots. My studded ankle boots from Truffle and my Dune brown winter boots are nice and warm also my pretty floral Ralph Lauren wellies are great for a rainy day or a muddy hike! 
- This is going to be an odd one but I tend to clear out my wardrobe for every season, …

Jane Eyre at The Mayflower theatre

A night at the theatre with @sotonbloggers 




I've always been a theatre lover and I've seen many shows at the Mayflower theatre over the years, so when I was invited to see Sally cooksons new adaptation of Charlotte bronte's novel Jayne eyre last night, I had to be there. We were given Great seats where we sat comfortably waiting for the show to begin. I honestly had no idea what to expect on this "new take" of the novel, it was also a great time to announce the tour as 2017 is the 170th anniversary of when Jane eyre was first published. the highly acclaimed co-production between the national theatre and the Bristol old vic. 
Jayne Eyre, played by the amazingly talented Nadia Cliford, shows her beginnings as a destitute orphan overcomes life's obstacles from surviving poverty, injustice, betrayal and the ultimate decisions on following her heart. While others may of found the thought of Jayne Eyre on stage might not of been their cup of tea I can honestly say…
