I have not even been in my new house 2 weeks yet, but with all this talk of sunshine and heat waves I want to make sure my garden is ready! My garden is quite small and fairly low maintenance, with lots of decking and not too much grass – so perfect for my rubbish gardening skills! There are a few flower beds that I would like to sort out however as I do love pretty flowers.
I was looking around online for some ideas on where I should start and saw some top tips over on Give As You Live Blog. So this weekend is dedicated to sorting out my flower beds and ordering my new garden furniture… probably from John Lewis as they have so much good stuff at the moment – I will need a bigger garden!
These are my 4 favourite things. I will definitely go for the table and chairs and although I love the double sofa lounger thing I will probably go for 2 deck chairs and 2 sun loungers. I think that’s a good start! What do you think?
So how about you – how is your garden looking? Will you be making a start this weekend too?
Have a good day and I shall be back soon xx

What do you think of today’s Make It Delightful? I love the confetti vases, so pretty.
If you have or can make something and would like to show the rest of us how, then please get in touch – I would love to hear from you.
Have a great day and I shall be back soon xx
Morning all, Monday again! How was your weekend? Mine was good and the new house is already feeling like home which is good. Still very much looking forward to this coming Easter weekend though! At least its only a 4 day week and as its Easter it would be rude not to have cute chicks and bunnies for today’s Too Cute!

Baby chicks are so cute, I want one! Have a good Monday and I shall be back soon xx
Morning all! It is a beautiful sunny day in Whitstable today and I am off out shortly to make the most of it. What are you up to today?
I have a Pinterest folder full of quotes – some funny, some sad and some just true. I post one most Sundays, in this Delightful Words feature, so that I can share them with you – so please do let me know what you think and how each quote may relate to you on that particular day.
I agree with this. I think far too many people say no to things just because it may be short notice – you only live once, why not be spontaneous now and again!
Have a sunny Sunday and I shall be back soon xx
Morning all and happy weekend! What plans do you have for today? I am off out shopping with my Mum shortly, then just sorting the last bits out in the house after my move.
How delicious do these strawberry crepes look?! Even better too as they are low carb! Pop over to netrition for the full recipe and instructions on how to make your own.
Yummy and guilt free… I am definitely making these!
Have a lovely Saturday and I shall be back soon xx
Morning all and happy Friday! I have just got this new Cath Kidston (Green Provence Rose Tablet Fabric Padded) case for my iPad 2 and it is so pretty I thought it was most definitely blog worthy!
Isn’t it pretty! Have a good Friday and I shall be back soon xx
As much as we would all love the latest designer handbags, unfortunately its just not possible for most of us to have them all and so I love it when the high street provide fab alternatives! I saw this comparison over on Sheerluxe and just had to share it here as I think it is great.

I do obviously love the Burberry ones, but think that the Accessorize alternatives are great for that price. I think I will get the white one – fab for Summer.
Have a lovely day and I shall be back soon xx
Happy Wedding Wednesday! There is nothing wrong with a traditional paper guest book at a wedding, but I always like to make things a little different so will be looking at a few alternative ideas today for Wedding Wednesday.
I think all of these are fab. Which one would you choose? Or what have you already had at your wedding and what did your guests think? I think I would go with the Jenga game!
Have a lovely Wedding Wednesday and I shall be back soon xx
I am loving the Spring Stripes from Mulberry for Spring Summer 2014 and the colours are just gorgeous – versatile midnight blue, cream and fiery red. The stripes were inspired by the bold linear patterns on freshly mowed fields in the English countryside – how very Mulberry… love it!
What do you think, isn’t this all fabulous! I want it all as usual. I especially love midnight blue Willow Tote… beautiful!
Have a lovely day and I shall be back soon :) xx
Morning all, how was your weekend? What did you get up to? Mine was super busy with the house move but I am all in and unpacked now, which is a massive relief! Just relaxing today and sorting the last few bits before going back to work tomorrow.
In the meantime, here is our Monday morning dose of cuteness…
OMG… that really is too cute!
Have a good day and I shall be back soon xx
