Planning, Christmas and the Journey to Straighter Teeth #LittleLoves

Oh wow, what a busy week this week has been! It has gone so quickly and I can’t believe we’re now a full week into December already – it will soon be Christmas!

Here are a few things we’ve been loving this week:


I’ve also been spending time looking at the calendar, pencilling things in and making plans for next year. I have a lovely new GoMunkee planner which I can stick to the fridge for everyone to see and am starting to fill it out with things that are happening next year. I’m excited for 2018 already.

We have also been reading some really exciting mail for the children – as Lapland Mailroom sent them letter from Father Christmas! The letters were personalised, so beautiful and came with a whole host of activities. They were so excited and are now totally into the Christmas spirit.


I have been making so many YouTube videos recently. I decided not to do vlogmas this year as vlogging every day would have been far too much pressure for me but I have still done a few videos – some of which I’m yet to publish so I’ve mainly been watching YouTube!


To help with the YouTube editing, Sudio sent me a pair of cordless headphones that have pretty much changed my life – or, my husband’s actually. It means I can edit videos in the evening with the TV on in the background and I don’t disturb anyone. Sudio have given me a discount code to pass on – use WhatTheRedheadSaid15 for 15% off at checkout.


Absolutely nothing this week! I have a few bakes left to make for the year with the children so we’ll be back on that next week.


This week our whole family have been getting into the festive spirit with Christmas jumpers, Christmas hats and all the Christmas decorations. Having photography lights has pretty much changed my life too. It means I can now take photos in the evenings!

and lastly…

Something massive has happened in my life this week – I got braces fitted on Wednesday. I’ve wanted my teeth straightened forever and so this will be completely life changing for me. I’ll now visit The Dental Studio each month to get the braces adjusted and by the end of the summer I should have lovely straight teeth – I’ll keep you updated.

This weekend we are having a relaxing one as the children are so, so tired from the term at school. We’ll be seeing family, delivering Christmas presents and maybe going to see a movie. It’s so nice to have a weekend or two at a slower pace and I cannot wait. Have a lovely weekend everyone.

    I need a planner like that, each day has a tonne of different things we all need to remember. Who’s going where and what we need to bring, whether it’s swimming kit, a guitar or ballet shoes!
    Loving the look of those headphones. With both my husband and I sharing an office I think we could do with a pair each!
    Enjoy your lovely relaxing weekend x

    Oh I am loving the festive jumpers and hats. I am jealous I have huge photos lights but can’t use them for the kids or family photos only food shots at night because they show up in B’s glasses it’s a nightmare not even bouncing off side walls they still show up in his lens. They are awesome for food styling at midnight though hahaha Love the look of the headphones I need a new pair. Hope you have a lovely weekend ahead. #littleloves

    Those headphones look amazing! Can’t get over them being wireless… so good! Enjoy your chilled weekend, lovely, you definitely deserve it. Fingers crossed you’re feeling less sore today.

    Oh you are so brave Donna I would love to have a brace but am terrified I had one when I was 14 and was allergic to the metal it was an awful couple of months the pain was horrific, I know the new ones are hypoallergenic but its that fear of it being last last time. 2 years ago I payed a small fortune for a veneer it made such a huge difference on my confidence , teeth really affect how you feel and your confidence, love the Christmas sweaters, you are so lucky the boys are not fans anymore, Jack has to wear one for work this year and i had to hunt everywhere for a plain one! yes a plain Christmas sweater x

    Oh you are so organised getting planned for next year – I am yet to buy a calendar or diary for next year – I should probably get to it soon! I love all your Christmas jumpers and hats – so festive and fun! We don’t have any hats, so I’m going to add them to my shopping list. I hope you had a wonderful weekend xx
