‘Show you were there’ round up

I took a little break from my regular round ups last week, as I was away for the weekend for BML17.  So this week I’ve picked out five photos that I really loved from my little #ShowYouWereThere community, instead of my usual four.

And without further ado, here they are!

First up is this smiley photo from Hannah over at HannahTasker.com.

I love her daughter’s expression in this photo, it’s just so cheeky!  If anyone has any advice or reassuring words for Hannah though, to ease her worries about her daughter’s eating, then please do pop over to instagram and leave her a comment, I’m sure it would be appreciated!


My second choice for this week is from Katy at Hot Pink Wellingtons.  In the caption Katy said that she almost didn’t post the photo, but I’m so happy that she did because it’s gorgeous, such a joyful moment captured.


My next pick is from Esther at Inside Out and About.  I just love all the happy faces in this photo, and that unbelievably cute hat!


The fourth photo I’ve chosen for this week is from Wendy at Naptime Natter.  I’m really with Wendy on the beach being my happy place, there’s something wonderful about sea air that just soothes me.


My bonus photo for this week’s round up is from Lucy at Mrs H’s Favourite Things.

I just think this is a beautiful photo of Lucy, her new cut and colour really suits her don’t you think!  I’m also more than a little bit jealous of her teeny number of grey hairs, as I’ve been dealing with mine since I was 18!

*🍁🍂AUTUMN COLOURS🍂🍁* _____________________________________ Lately, I've been feeling "meh" about my hair. It just felt flat and dull. It needed warmth! ___________________________________ So at first I headed off to our local @officialrushhairbeauty in Tunbridge Wells to have it chopped into a bob with a sweeping fringe. Then this weekend I had an all over colour and some soft highlights. ___________________________________ It may not look like a huge change. But it has given my hair the warmth it desperately needed. And the colour is perfect for autumn and winter. In fact, I've nicknamed the shade as "conker" 🌰 ____________________________________ I've been hating on myself a lot recently. And that includes my appearance. This new do has really given me the lift I needed. And I feel good about the way I look for the first time in many moons. It also had the added bonus of covering the 7 grey hairs that my hair dresser found on my head!!!! 👵🏻👵🏻👵🏻 Not bad for 3 days shy of 39 years old!!!
