Monthly Favourites // Linky #1 - May 2015


I'm being brave and starting a new linky, for all bloggers of any type whether it be parenting, lifestyle, beauty, travel etc. I see so many monthly favourite posts and videos around that I absolutely love reading but it came to my attention that as far as I could find there isn't a linky for them.

You will be able to link up any post or video. This isn't a your favourite post from the month, it's your monthly favourites so it could be your monthly favourites - beauty, randoms, lifestyle, fashion, pictures, anything that is monthly and favourites!! For example I will be adding my me and mine linky photo this month which includes a few things that I have loved about this month :)



(The code will bring up the image smaller on your blog but set it to whatever size you like!)


As ever there are some basic rules, there isn't many so please read and stick to these. Anyone not sticking to the rules will be removed from participating. 

1. You must add the above code to the post you have linked up to so the picture is added or if on youtube, then you must add a link to this post in your video description. 
2. Comment on at two blogs post in front of you on the list, more is appreciated if you wish. Use the #monthlyfavourites in comments so people know where you stopped by from.
3. Maximum of two entry per blog/youtube - just on the topic of #monthlyfavourites (I know some people do separate beauty and random favourites!)
4. Will be open every month between 25th and 10th - so plenty of time :)

Twitter Hashtag - #monthlyfavourites
(please use this hashtag so others can see your posts and I will retweet as many as I can. Also would be really grateful for a social media share to help spread the word of the linky too!) 

For those of you who may be old or new, and struggling to work out how to join in linkies. I created a YouTube tutorial. I admit it isn't the greatest and I was so nervous when talking (sorry!) but should certainly do the job to help you understand :) So check out this video here to learn how to join in:

Monthly Favourites #3


Another month has gone by seriously?! We are half way through the year but oh what a good year it has been so far :) So let's get into some of this month's favourites.. 

*Mummy Loves*
Went to Channel 4's Comedy Gala at 02 in London

Exciting work opportunities

Made my first YouTube Video

*Corey Loves*
School trip to Tesco

Here is this month's favourite picture of Corey and I :) his hair was insanely long here!!!

Something really super exciting about this month - I started a brand new linky!! It is all for your monthly favourite blog posts or youtube videos, on any topic whether it be beauty, randoms, fashion, photos etc. It took a while to come up with a badge but I am pretty pleased with the outcome as I am not good at this whole design thing. If you want to join in pretty please click here and link up :) Also help spread the word on social media would be so greatly appreciated!

Another really exciting blogging thing this month - I started YouTube - okay well I made one video and we will see if I make anymore. You can read all about it here and watch the video here. It's a house tour :)

It's actually half term this week which is super exciting as means I get to spend lots of time with Corey! Hoping the weather stays nice for us as we have lots planned. Including an opening visit to the very first Nickelodeon store in a couple of days before it opens up to the public - so excited!! :) Will be sure to post about what we get up too.

Look forward to seeing lots of your posts on your monthly favourites and photos for those who join in the linkies that are below - if you don't already know about them go and check them out as they really are great :) .. Now in the comments let me know what was your favourite part of this month?!
