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

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…

positive vibes only!

Outfits and Body confidence! 


Here are my favourite 12 outfits of 2016. Last year i learnt to be more confident with clothes during my weightloss journey. I covered up at the start of the year as I felt uncomfortable although I had lost 2st at this point I still didn't feel me! 
It wasn't untill my wedding day that I totally gave up on what people thought. I gave up pressuring myself to loose weight quickly as I couldn't be bothered with people making losing weight a competition. As the Rest of the year went on, I began to feel confident in body and enjoyed clothes again, I felt no pressure and I felt content as I have been working hard for my health and fitness goals. 
I am 4lb away from my target goal and I have offically lost 3st 10lb. 2015-2016. I run 3/4 times a week Staying fit and healthy to be a good role model for poppy and my husband... also to be a better me physically and mentally.

You don't need money to be stylish part 2

The tables and centre pieces for my wedding!







It's been a year since I wrote "you don't need Money to be stylish", which was a post on charity shops. I had such a great response to this and lots of you loved the idea that my now husband converted me into a charity shop bargain hunter ha ha ha. Since then we've had our daughter and gotten married, during both of these times we're still all about saving! during the planning of our wedding we wanted a rustic/hobbit themed wedding (don't worry we didn't dress up as hobbits) we also wanted to use our money wisely and not break the bank! 
Tables & The centre pieces: we opted for wild-like flowers which were all bought from Morrisons! The bunches come to £1.20 each (bought 6) used for 4 tables and the head table. We bought the crystal glass bottles from poundland ,at obviously, £1 per bottle (10 bottles ).the table numbers were from the works that came in a pack of 4 for £1, all the artificial flowers on…
