Last Post of March 2017!

I’m back from my blog break. Belle’s passing left a huge void in our house and lives but I now feel ready to start blogging once again.

I’ve found that nipping to the stables to see the two smaller ponies has helped me recover from what has happened, Polly and Jester (the two little ones who I’ve been working with) are the cutest things and they always do things that make me smile.

I’m not sure if I’ve told you about this before, but when you scratch Polly’s neck, she lifts her head up and literally GRINS! She pulls her lips back so far, it’s like a Cheshire cat has taken over her!

I’m going to be doing some more things with them this afternoon, and I’ll update you if they do any hilarious!

Stripe’s been a bit gloomy since Belle passed, as she was there when he first arrived at our house, so he’s taking it quite hard. However, my grandma is very good at sewing and cut open one of my old toys, put some lavender in it, sowed it back up and gave it Stripe. Obviously not as a replacement of any sort, but something for him to cuddle up to when he’s low.

And it’s certainly working, he took it to the big armchair and now sits on there, giving his sheep a big hug whenever he’s inside.

We all have each other right now, and while things are still very different, everyone is supporting everyone. I will be restarting my Fragrance Fridays next week, and my Hits Of lists too!


Emerald Summer by Escada

Escada’s new annual summer scent features in a dark green bottle. With red flowers circling the logo, a plush red sequined ball adorns the golden cap.

The top notes are a sizzling red berries, tangerine, pineapple and blackberry.

The middle is a fine mix of violets,  cherry blossom, apricot & hibiscus.

This perfume ends with a gorgeous combination of vanilla and woods.

Dot by Marc Jacobs Review

After researching the popular Marc Jacobs’ fragrances, I loved the look of the beautiful bottles and was pulled in by the notes.

On another trip to my local pharmacy, I picked up the one with spots on it. Dot.

I love ladybugs and I can now add this to my growing collection of ladybug things, and of course my perfume collection, which is quite big right now!

You spray it and then comes a burst of red berries (I love those!) and some Dragon Fruit.

The name ‘dragon fruit’ really interested me, so I did a Google search and found that dragon fruit is actually for pitaya, which is a really nice pink fruit with lots of benefits for you.

There’s coconut in this perfume and it is faintly in there, the ending is also quite musky.

All in all, a lovely fragrance!

Happy Halloween!

Tomorrow is Halloween and I wanted to wish you all a very happy one.

Last night, there was something particularly scary in the kitchen….


I reckon Kevin the kitty, must have used his sister Elsa as a Launchpad. I don’t know what happened after I took this picture, but he got down alright. Hopefully he didn’t use his sister as a LANDING pad!
