Things Making My Life Nice Lately #2

Appreciating the nice things in life as I did in this post recently is to become a regular thing I think.

One it's a bit of blog inspo for my poor neglected tiny part of the internet world but also with life whizzing around us, it's so easy to get caught up in what's not so nice or what we don't have that we fail to appreciate the nice things that we do have in life. They may only be small, insignificant to some, but they are the little things that might give you the pick me up at the right time.

Here's my pick for this time around:




Lip Lacquer from Penneys / Primark. I adore this colour. It's perfect for wear during the day or night and lasts for ages. It goes on quite wet but once it settles it's comfortable and durable. It was a bargain for 2.50 and I think I'm going to have to go back and pick up some more colours. 


A sure sign Christmas is on it's way when you spot this in the shops. It's my favourite festive chocolate in recent times and makes up for the lack of Top Deck bars (remember them?!) around the place these days. They were the best bars, milk chocolate on the bottom, white chocolate on top, dipped into the cup of tea and melted, so yummy!!


We were kindly sent these juice drinks from Appy Kids Co and Luke loves them. Lower in sugar too and a variety of flavours, it's a win all round. They have been coming in handy for the preschool drink and the Paw Patrol and Dora designs have won me some Mum points.


I love painting my nails, they are rarely without colour. I change them up about 3 times a week but this is my favourite shade at the moment, it goes with everything. I always have to have one nail different too, a bit sparkly, anyone else or am I just clinging on to some quick passing trend. Having my nails done makes any outfit complete for me. I generally find you can't go wrong with the Essence range and the sparkle one is from Collection in Boots.


I was The M Word recently by Gill Books and was looking forward to reading it. I haven't picked up a book properly in ages, I try but I can't get past the first couple fo pages, I don't have the head space or something. It's something I'm trying to change and this book came alonga tthe right time, it was funny, easy to read and more importantly relatable. This isn't a "How To Parent" book, it's more of a "Feck it do what you gotta do" kind of book. Parenting is hard, particularly for us mothers and we are all trying our best and doing what we think is rihgt and that's the way it should be, this book enforces that thought process. You worry abnout your kids and I'll worry about mine! This is now top of my list for gifts for new Mum's! I really enjoyed reading it and it's broken my long run of not being able to finish a book!
