our weekend in pictures

^^ love these two photos, such a familiar scene when you have a toddler no?^^
^^ he said he was checking his emails^^

This weekend I was away in Birmingham to speak at the TOTS100 Blogcamp. This will have been my third blogging panel I have spoken at now in total, if you would have told me even a few years ago that I would be doing any kind of speaking in public I would never have believed you.

I met lots of lovely readers and bloggers and attended some great classes. Thanks so everyone who came to my talk and took the time to say hi! I was so pleased my pal Laura was there too, always great to catch up, she even took a few pics of my session which I'll share here soon. If anyone was unable to make it then please do leave any questions you may have about lifestyle blogging in the comments, I've had a few questions over twitter and would love to make a full post for you.

On Sunday I felt totally wiped out so we took it really easy and stayed local. Tom and I moved our room around a little as we just got a new sofa (I feel like a proper grown up buying my first new sofa!). I'm hoping to do another little room tour soon as our space has changed around a lot. It's the one type of post people ask for the most but the hardest to do as our home is usually a mess!

Hope you all had fantastic weekends x

I use *RadLab to edit all my photographs

Ahhh, love how bright and fun these photos are. And those first two really made me smile; that is definitely life with a toddler right there.
Glad that blog camp went well. x

Love Wilf's outfit at the park, he looks adorable! Glad Blog camp went well, you are so brave, public speaking is literally my worst nightmare!! x

Em Rathbone said...

I really enjoyed your panel at BlogCamp (even though I'm obviously not cut out for fashion blogging!!) I love Wilf's trousers and braces, more kids trousers should have braces!! x

abigail said...

I love the look of your new sofa! Also I don't think I could ever speak on a panel, it makes me nervous just thinking about it! Also is that a gin and tonic? I'm totally craving one now!

Louisa said...

Great photos. Is Wilf wearing jellies? I've seen lots around and they bring back memories!
* I'd love to know if you style your rooms for your shots and how to make the best use of light when shooting indoors.

Lovely to meet you last Saturday.


Every comment from me is about Wilf's clothes - but I can't resist - you're killing me with the braces and fruit t-shirt. I love it :-)


Favourite photo is the one where Wilf is looking down through the bridge though.


Hope you've had a lovely week.

Bex Smith said...

What lovely photos! Rather you than me doing public speaking, aha xx

Healthier Mummy said...

Wow, well done you with the public speaking. Sounds like you deserved that a lazy Sunday - I think I would be prone on the sofa after a day like that rather than rearranging furniture! Love your little boy's t-shirt and braces look, v cool..

Liz Ferguson said...
