Sunday 7 – A Modest Christmas Wish List

Dec 17th, 2017 Small Talk Bean 10 min read

Hello! And welcome to my last Sunday 7 of 2017. I haven’t managed a Sunday 7 for the past couple of weeks due to our home renovations reaching a head, as well as the fact that we’re into that somewhat frenetic period in the lead up to D-day with school Nativity plays, Carol Services not to mention the two separate family Christmases I’ve already had with my…


Spot light: Becky Pearce Designs, Handcrafted Jewellery

Dec 12th, 2017 Small Talk Bean 12 min read

Hello! And welcome to another mid-week ‘spot-light’ blog post, which comes in the form of an interview I did recently with my lovely insta-buddy, Becky Pearce who designs and hand makes jewellery to order. I’ve been following Becky on Instagram for over a year now, and although I feel like I gotten to know Becky pretty well, especially after last year’s month long ‘meet the maker’…

Sunday 7 – Small Business Saturday

Hello! How are you all? Are you Black Friday ‘discounted’ out? I am. I absolutely, 100% L.O.V.E. a bargain – I mean, who doesn’t? But… I think I’ve mentioned previously about my frustrations with sales here in this No Sales Here blog post as well as last year’s One and Only Black Friday Purchase. The reality for me is this: I am a stay at…

Nov 19th, 2017 Small Talk Bean 16 min read

Hello! And welcome to a slightly off-piste edition of Sunday 7: my recent La Redoute home accessories purchases. You all know I’m having some renovations done at home, don’t you? I mean I *think* I’ve mentioned it a couple of times…? OK, OK, I mention it every bloomin’ week! Anyway, I suppose I should be apologising for not bringing you my latest clothing fashion crushes…


Coats- Tried and Tested for Petites

Nov 15th, 2017 Small Talk Bean 19 min read

Hello & welcome to a cheeky mid-week blog post! So… as Autumn’s winding down and the colder winter months are pretty much upon us, I’ve been looking to add to my coat collection. Primarily a smarter mid-length, or longer line coat and so over the past few weeks, I’ve been popping into stores to try on coats & thought I’d share my findings about over all fit…


Sunday 7 – Velvet Heaven

Nov 12th, 2017 Small Talk Bean 22 min read

Hello! How’s your week been? Well, it’s actually the past two weeks, given I had a much needed weekend off… I’ve been on a very bumpy ride on the ‘parent rollercoaster’ this week, with a very, very poorly small child, but all is good now. So, from the title of this post, you’ve probably guessed I’m looking at all things velvet this week and having missed last…


The Zara Order

Hola! Having barely slept last night from the stresses and dramas that come from home renovations, I decided I would take the day off and actually blog a proper review post about my Zara order (which follows on from my last Sunday 7 – Zara edit.) Having blogged about all the lushness from Zara’s New-in section on Sunday, I decided to bite the bullet and place an…

Hello! So how’s your week been? I won’t drone on about my home reno’s vs the stressed out working at home husband vs kids half term – I think I did enough go that last week! But mid-week, I got a much needed emotional & mental rest-bite with grandparents coming to the rescue!  My mum-in-law & her hubsband are the most hands-on of the 3…


Sunday 7 – Late Check-in

Oct 22nd, 2017 Small Talk Bean 17 min read

Hello! How has your week been? It’s half term here, and utter chaos in the house… a chance to do a quick blogpost is a much needed rest-bite from the kids… who are actually being pretty good, but my brain is still frazzled none the less. This week, I thought I’d tackle the issue of checked trousers on us shorties (and yes, I’m a bit late…
