Little Bean on the Prairie

So… it’s been a while since I did an actual mid-week “review” post of things any of my own recent purchases. The timing of my somewhat ”western” themed Topshop order & delivery wasn’t ideal for blogging because of a fortnight’s work commitments… …or in other words, after taking my youngest to 2 birthday parties on Sunday (the sort where you have to stay & wait with them: why???) I got home…


Sunday 7 – The Good Shirt Edit

Jan 21st, 2018 Small Talk Bean 25 min read

Hello, hello… Good news: January seems to be flying by! Why is that good? Well… it means the days are getting longer… in daylight terms, obviously. And slightly lighter mornings, as well as brighter afternoons are quite simply, good for the soul! So, as far as these Sunday 7 posts of mine go… there’s generally no rhyme or reason as to what’s taken my fancy…


Spotlight: Tilly Sveaas Jewellery

Hello there, and welcome to a cheeky little mid-week, *spotlight* blog post. Today I’m talking bling. Tilly Sveaas Jewellery to be exact. Let me rephrase that… gorgeous, gorgeous, Tilly Sveaas Jewellery! I’ve been following Tilly Sveaas’ Instagram for over a year now, lusting after various necklaces in the main, as well as the odd bracelet. But, as ever, I’ve been my usual indecisive self, and…


Sunday 7 – For now, For Spring

Jan 14th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 26 min read

Hello! How are you all doing this week? For me, this week has *got* to have been one of the loooooongest weeks e.v.e.r. I don’t know what it was given the weather wasn’t super terrible, and nothing in particular happened which I can think of that made the week awful… but boy did it drag. The relief when Friday evening came round was simply enormous!…


Sunday 7 – New Year’s New In

Jan 7th, 2018 Small Talk, Sunday 7 Bean 23 min read

Hello! And welcome to the first Sunday 7 of 2018 – and a belated – Happy New Year! I had a very quiet xmas break; which, after the past six months of renovations, was frankly, just what the doctor ordered. Although… I’ve hardly slept over the past two weeks – we’ve finally been able to move in to our new bedroom and whether it’s too…

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’…

Hello! And welcome to a little mid-week blog post all about these gorgeous Grace Boots from Seven Boot Lane:If you are a fashion blog follower, then chances are you’ve already heard of Seven Boot Lane (SBL), as they are a bit of a bloggers-fav.

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…


Sunday 7 – La Redoute Interiors Edit

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…
