Plus size debates, Minions and Jack Bauer #LittleLoves

It's been a few weeks since I took part in this linky as we've been so busy - this month is just whizzing on by! Here's our round up of the week,  #LittleLoves style


There has been a lot in the press this week about plus size fashion and then Jamelia opened her gob on Loose Women and insulted thousands of the nation's women. She said "I don't believe stores should stock clothes below or above a certain weight. They should be made to feel uncomfortable when they go in and can't find a size" . She then responded to the backlash by saying that she only meant extreme cases...people below a 6 or above a size 20 - oh well that's ok then!!! Idiot...

I've been reading lots about it, here's some of my favourite blogs:

The Not So Secret Diary of a Wannabe Princess: Jamelia - We Are The 'They' #WeAreTheThey
(Debz' hashtag exploded on Twitter and has been trending worldwide!)

And lastly, a great write up on Huffington Post - here


Elliot has recently gone crazy for minions and we watched Despicable Me 2 yesterday. I thought he'd enjoy it being that it has minions in it but everytime the minions weren't on screen he said "this is boring!"...toddlers!!!! 

There's been a big void in our lives since we finished watching 24 last year but my husband has been binge watching House on Netflix. I hated it at first but he watches it every bloody evening so I've had no choice but to get into it! House is definitely no substitute for Jack Bauer though ;) 


My wardrobe has been pretty dull this week but Elliot's had a few new items. And we went a bit minion crazy!! The t-shirt and bag were from Asda and the hat and trainers were from Tesco - but they all match! I love the t-shirt, it's really bright and summery and looks very cute with the trainers. And he's been wearing the hat back to the front, because he's cool like that ;)


I have had this song on repeat all week - it's not a recent one but I just love it and it sounds so good up loud in the car with the windows down! 


We made one of our faves this week, easy peasy fish pie. Recipe can be found here

Getting a bit bored with our weekly meals so I think I need to switch things up a bit. If Elliot had his way he'd have spaghetti hoops and sausages everyday! 

And lastly...

 We are in the process of selling our flat at the moment so I really need to make a start on the packing soon. Really don't know where to start though!! Hopefully moving into somewhere much bigger so looking forward to Elliot having more room to store his toys - our lounge might start to look like a lounge again and not Toys R Us!

Tomorrow I am taking part in a charity event with my choir. We are singing in the town square and I am hoping and praying for dry weather!!



  1. While I don't agree with Jamelia per se, I do agree that there has to be some deterrent in fighting obesity in the UK. People are overweight generally because they eat too much,eat the wrong foods and do little to no excercise, while the NHS fund all their resulting medical problems because of this! Sorry......rant over! Love that song too! Best of luck with the flat sale & fingers crossed ye find your perfect home! Have a great week xxx

  2. Sounds like you had a busy week! The toddler loves the minions too, there ius a big inflatable one in the ELC by us that he runs towards, then it moves at him and he is terrified. Bad mummy finding it hilarious!!x

  3. We love minions in our house too...not that we have any kids yet :p spaghetti and sausages is such a great combo. Hope packing goes well, duck tape, sticky labels and a sharpie got me through our last move. All the best with it xx

  4. My littlest is obsessed with Minions too. She cannot wait for the new Minions film to come out in the summer. Hope the charity event went wel and you didn't get rained on! xx
