Liked and Loved January 2017


January is always a bit of an odd month. In some ways exciting as there is a brand new year of possibilities ahead, but also it can be a bit of a quiet month after the excitement of Christmas. I’ve still managed to find some things that I have liked and loved for January 2017 though.


Sunny beautiful Cornwall


I’m not exactly quiet about my love for Cornwall at any time, but this last week with the sun shining it has been especially beautiful. I’ve loved getting outside again and seeing the back of all the grey skies for a change. Today it is tipping it down, but it was lovely whilst it lasted.

Absolute cuteness on YouTube


This video from YouTube popped up on my Facebook feed recently and honestly could this be any more cute? Just so lovely and the little girl is adorable.



Once Upon A Time


I started watching this on Netflix this month and I am completely hooked. It’s one of those series where you really can’t guess what on earth is going to happen next. It’s all about fairy tale characters and other make believe characters who are in our world due to a curse, but have to all remember who they are.


Honestly so random, but addictive. I’ve recently watched an episode recently with Elsa and Anna from Frozen in. Has anyone else watched it?


New curtains


I finally chose some curtains for our dining room and I love them. It’s just finished the room off and made it seem a lot cosier.

Our new mattress


I was sent an Emma mattress to review recently and it is so comfortable. It has made our bed a little bit too cosy and welcoming though, as I am oversleeping more than usual. Though I don’t think a lot of late nights have helped that either.

Losing weight


It is happening very slowly, but I am being good eating a whole lot better and exercising a bit more. I’m down 4 lbs since I started trying to lose weight and I already feel a lot better for it.


What was great about your January?

    We used to watch Once Upon a Time too, Stevie, it’s great! Totally different from the type of things we usually watch:)

      I’m almost on the last series already! I love that with Netflix you can watch a whole series of a show without having to wait and watch old ones :)

    I’ve not seen Once Upon A Time but it looks ace! That video is just too adorable! Sooo cute! I’m being tempted to visit Cornwall by all these photos you keep sharing… sunny skies, pasties and scones with clotted cream… mmmm how can I resist?!

      It’s a bit of a mad programme, but that’s what makes it so good :) I’ve just started the last series now.

      Thanks hon, I love them and the weightloss is something I am totally rubbish at despite this small victory ;) but I can’t imagine you having to lose weight at all anyway :)

    Oooo I saw the curtains on Instagram. Very nice. Isn’t it amazing how one thing can make such a difference? Well done with the weightless. I will be on it myself very soon :)

    Ooh your house is looking fabulous, love the curtains and table. Glad you decided to ditch the table cloth too ;) and well done on losing weight, it’s so tough and you’re doing brilliantly.

      Thanks Ray. Ha one room of our house is looking fabulous ;) the rest still looks like a messy work in progress!

      Thanks lovely, the weightloss has stalled again at the moment, but I’ll get there eventually!

    I too adored the video of the Daddy and his little lady singing you’ve got a friend in me.

    Cornwall is such a beautiful part of the country….You are so lucky to live there.
    The curtains look fab and so does the mattress.
    Well done for the weight loss. It sounds like it’s going great x

    That video is the cutest and i love the print of the curtains. I’ve also been struggling to get out of bed in the mornings, its so miserable this time of year.

      I can’t wait until spring time now, I need to see more sunshine and not be cold ;)

    With the cold it’s been a great month for making our houses more homely and the child singing is so sweet. Thanks for running the linky.
