April loves from our new Mummy Blogger

Posted on in LIFESTYLE & #LETGO with 7 Comments

Well Hello there text

My name is Emma, and I’m delighted toEmma mummy blogger
introduce myself as the new family lifestyle
writer for Sanctuary Spa’s lovely website.
I’m mummy to three children under nine, and
wife to the Mr, and together we live in
Little Wood – our new home deep in the Irish countryside. I also run a family lifestyle blog,
Life at the Little Wood, in my ‘free’ (ha!) time.
Raising children is a wonderful, fractious, amazing, busy, lifelong learning experience, isn’t it? I’m excited to share some of this with you, as well as our little joys and ordinary, special little adventures over the coming months.


So, let’s get to it with our April loves from Little Wood…


Us and Them




– A family trip to Disney on Ice – we always try to make it to this show when it visits. The kids love it and, truth be told, so do we!




Children dress up


– Silly snaps – where have our children gone??!



Emma's Children



– Spring brights – longer days and (hopefully!) more sunshine requires colourful clothes. The brighter the better! (Dresses and Breton tops – Boden)



Me and Him
Emma and Partner


– A weekend away and time together






– Little snapshots








Pretty Buildings



– Pretty buildings





Little Me
Bubble Bath


– Bubble baths and time to relax and recharge

Topshop and fashion




– New Spring clothes – I love this dress, to wear now with opaques and brogues, and later with tanned legs and sandals. A perfect transitional piece. And these new shoes are easily the most comfortable ones that I have ever worn. (Shoes and dress – TopShop)





– Pretty pastel nails (Essie – Lilacism)




May looks set to bring warmer days, and longer evenings, lighter clothes and painted toes. As a family we love this time of year as it means more time outdoors to explore, casting off coats and plenty of fresh air!
I look forward to catching up with you next month, and giving you the low-down on what we have been up to. Here’s hoping the good old British weather doesn’t scupper our plans!

  1. I love this rundown of your April loves. So happy you’ve bought your Emma style over here too 🙂

    In spring we love walks in the sun, puddle jumping in april showers and feeling like we have more time in the evenings with H.

    I LOVE following Emma over at Life at the Little Wood. Excited to follow her over here too! She write such gorgeous posts! Spring for us = getting excited for Summer and long, lazy days with nowhere to go or be…..kids off and hubby a teacher = chill to the max!

  3. What a beautiful family, and exciting month you have had. Where did you spot that purple door. I would love something like that, but hubby would not be impressed! Looking forward to reading the next episode. M x
