Life lately in snapshots #5


We've encountered so much wet and windy weather recently, there has been nothing nicer than to stay inside in the warmth and hunker down! I've really missed spending time outside and in
the garden, but the weather shows no sign of lifting just yet... so hibernating it is. I've been relying on some of these to get through the passing Mercury Retrograde, where periods of working internet were scarce. Here's a few favourites from this month!

1. Ballet Beautiful dvd - staying inside brings its own challenges but luckily I have help in the exercise department; it's amazing what this dvd can do! I was inspired by my CBT practitioner to try this, as she suggested trying some exercises inside for the days I feel unwell. I love how I can choose my own routine: if I am feeling worse than usual, I select gentle exercises and try to pace myself through them. There are some difficult workouts to try too - definitely something for everyone on there, which I really like!

2. Snow day - despite the rain and wind, we were blessed with a serene couple of snow days, with huge, swirling snowflakes: our first snow of the winter! It was amazing to feel the muffled crunch under my feet and see the icicles hanging from the roof. Sadly I was staying away for the duration and without my camera, but managed to capture a few scenes with my iPad.

3. Oscar selfies - trying to perfect self portraits with wriggling little boy while we are playing inside! I'm really looking in to getting a tripod once I have a few pennies available as, without Mitch's help, I don't have as many mother and baby pictures as I do of Oscar on his own.

4. Kawaii stickers - I've blogged about this poofy rabbit stickers before but they are just so pretty and I'm loving using them to decorate my Oscar album and generally everything else.

5. Dairy Milk strawberries and creme - being tucked inside with this beauty is never a bad thing, I'm completely addicted. It tastes just like strawberry quality streets!

6. Oscar giggles - playing see saw and laughing in the pillows with Oscar after lunch! It's the loveliest feeling to see him notice and appreciate me. I feel our bond has really strengthened lately, I'm really in love with him now and we're working so well as a team!

7. Sailor girl - my Jess Woods white sailor dress is my favourite at the moment. I love the shape of the skirt and the thick, long sleeves are perfect for the cold days.

8. Rocket bag - I found this for a tenner in the 70% off Accessorize sale, it's so cute! It's a small crossbody bag, perfect for carrying essentials... in the shape of a rocket (!!). I originally had the milk carton version on my wishlist a while back but admiring them in person, the glittery stars and detail on the rocket immediately won me over.

9. Lemongrass and ginger - Mitch treated me to this full sized Yankee, knowing I'm mad about the scent of lemongrass (it smells of midsummer evenings). This candle definitely doesn't disappoint and has a lovely, strong, fragrant throw. It's so nice to have a piece of exotic garden inside, while the cold rain thrashes upon our windows outside.

How did you find your January? I'm a little behind on catching up with replies due to technology turning to the dark side - but thank you so much for such lovely comments!!

  5. Oscar is so cute! Did he like seeing the snow? You are so lucky to have had some, in Paris we're still waiting and it's not going to snow anytime soon unfortunately :( Also the Accessorize bag is really cool!

  18. Such a lovely roundup Elizabeth! It seems like we're all trying to get through this horrid and dreary weather (Where is the sunshine?!!). I found January to be a bit slow, still trying to get into a good routine, but I'm thankful we're moving toward February.
