I can hardly believe January is coming to a close!  It’s been a rather dreary wet month in the Aberdeenshire countryside.  We had to manically build flood defenses, which thankfully held.  Although those further down the hill were devastated.

It’s been a busy old month in our household, as Christmas got packed away to make room for our ground floor renovations…eek!  So we’ve been living in a nook in the undecorated back room and upstairs.

Anyway..linking up with the utterly delightful Emma at Life at the Littlewood and sharing our things we’re loving in January…


As a recent family of 4, we are still very much adapting to each other and figuring each other out.

With MM still being quite young, we tend to hang out at home a lot and explore the countryside around us.  Its glorious getting to see the change in the garden, as we’ve had some extreme weather this month.

I’ve been adding bits to the girls rooms, since we are spending so much time upstairs and I’m loving their bedrooms…so full of colour…I promise some full reveals soon!

I’m adoring our new pom pom hats.  I’m a new convert to hats and I can see more being added to the collection throughout the year.

We all went bonkers for the baubles this year and loving our hats from George at Asda.


I’ve been letting the side down (I’m blaming the renovations).  There hasn’t been much, if any, beautifying this month.  However I have made a promise to myself to keep up a new skincare routine.  I’ve always loved Boots No 7 Protect and Perfect range and I’m already feeling the benefits of it.

What have you been up to in January?  Share your loves over with Life at the Littlewood.



  1. I adore your bobble hats! Cutest ever! And am so excited to see the reveal of the ground floor. I get more enthusiastic than I probably should about other peoples home renovations! 😉 I think i need a project!
    Thanks so much for joining in sweetpea xx

  2. Lovely little update, you always look very beautiful.
    I am so excited for some room tours xxx

  3. I love the pom pom hats I really want to get one myself I been meaning to but just didn’t get round to it. I love having a nosey at room tours so I’ll be looking out for urs.

  4. Aw you bauble hats are so cute! I need to make a stop at Asda I think. Beautiful views you had on your walk. It looks lovely, the snow on the ground is so pretty. Looking forward to the reveal of your children’s room’s I love the bunting/ball ball decoration, full of colour. x

  5. Love the hats. I’ve just bought myself one and I have always loved them on my toddler. Love photos of your walks. Can’t wait to see more of your home renovations. We are slowly doing ours too but with baby number 2 on the way (which also meant a long over due new family car) our new bathroom will have to wait. Looking forward to doing the nursery though.

  6. Aaah I had totally forgot January is almost over. How scary is that? Time is flying by! Loving your pom pom garland. Looks like you’ve had a fabulous month x

  7. Lovely photo’s – January has all been about preparing for Eliza’s birthday for us :0)

  8. Love those bobble hats from Asda, they look so cosy and those pictures are beautiful. We’re also staying home a lot at the moment and exploring the parks and countryside nearby. I just can’t walk around for too long these days. #ThingsImLovingLately xx

  9. I love the little strings of pom-poms and the bobble hats! I’ve never been much into hats but I’m thinking I may have to give them a try, they just look so cute!
