Stacey's Smiles

Enjoying our little outdoor space.

An ice cream sundae on a Sunday is a treat that's allowed right?

 My favourite room in the house :)

A game of Prosecco Pong anyone? c/o Talking Tables

S'mores are the best part of a BBQ in my opinion hehe! 

Happy Friday Again! I have a pretty busy September coming up but I couldn't be more excited as it involves some fun days out with favourite girls and lots of celebrations! We finally 'almost' finished our little garden so we've been trying to enjoy any nice summer evenings we have left before the fade  away. We're also starting to put some finishing touches on a few other rooms and I can't wait to share more of my home with you all on the blog soon.

Swirling & Twirling

I had been eyeing up this Free People dress all summer but with buying a house and lots of bills to pay adding to my closet has been bottom of my priorities and this dress was way out of my normal budget anyway. But when one pops back up in your size and on sale for 60% off it's meant to be right??
This dress is absolutely gorgeous and I am so glad I had a little splurge because I know this will be in my wardrobe for years to come and it is SOOO fun to swirl and twirl in!

Bella Boo

I know that you may have seen Bella make an appearance on the blog a few weeks ago, but I felt it was time she got a proper introduction to you all.

Bella arrived with us a month ago when she was one day shy of 12 weeks old. We had only been in our place for 5 days so we can't imagine life without Bella here.

I had a tabby cat growing up that I had begged for, for my eighth birthday and 14 years later when we lost her I was devastated. I knew I would have a cat again one day and later that year when I saw Ellie Goulding's 'Your Song' music video, I fell in love with the little kitten and announced that I wanted a kitten just like that and I would name her Bella.

And now here we are and life really is wonderful with her in my world. 
Her favourite toy is her flamingo Betsy and she has a thing with baskets (she decided to curl up in my new croissant basket just the other day). She learns too quickly and can already get just about anywhere she wants in the house, she has even learnt to use the drawers in my closet as a step ladder to get to where she wants. She loves to knock down all the cards around our fireplace and pounce on them and she sits on the window sill and watches us any time we are out in the garden. She is a true girlie girl and likes to spend time in my shoe basket in my closet too and she has taken a particular liking to my basket bag.

If you follow me on Instagram you'll know how obsessed I am with Bella, she has taken over my insta-stories (sorry, not sorry) and she even has her own hashtags #BellaxSS #sslovebella.
I'm pretty sure that everyone that has met Bella has loved her even her Granddad who likes to pretend he's not an animal person! 

She has completed our little family and brings such joy to the our home every day. She is full of mischief but all is always forgiven (even when she had a little accident on the bed). I'm pretty certain she has also become Sean's number one girl in the house. You'll be seeing Bella round the blog every now and again and she'll be up to trouble on my insta-stories on an almost daily basis haha!
