Motherly love 💓

Each and every day we should love and appreciate our mother.

Luckily for them there is a day once a year for us to remind them how important they are and shower them with all the gifts.

I say it every year, but seriously… when’s daughters day?

If you’re stuck for ideas for what to get your mum this year I’ve put together some ideas for inspo from everyone’s favourite M&S.

All sorts of beautiful flower bouquets! These rose and freesias are £35

Every mum deserves a cup of tea in bed on Sunday morning so this adorable little “Mum” mug is perfect and only £6!

Who doesn’t love new pjs? These cute coral ones are £22.50

Cant get out for afternoon tea? Have this adorable little “tea in Knightsbridge” themed hamper instead!

If your mum is anything like mine; she loves a handbag! This cute little crossbody bag comes in 4 different colours as well for £25!

Whatever all the yummy mummy’s are up too this weekend I hope you are spoiled and enjoy your day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Speak soon,

Lotsa love

Is imitation a form of flattery?

When growing up there was always the well known thing of being a “copycat”.

In primary school it was the simplest little things to having the same pencil case as daisy at the same table in your class…

To secondary school were everyone was trying to avoid having the same “Morgan” or “Kooki” bag.

Thankfully everyone grows up and life moves on – but in the world of social media and Instagram has this childlike phase made an ugly reappearance?

As we all know bloggers and social media influencers have a pressure to be on top of their “insta game” with fresh outfits and edgy af pics. We all like a “I’m not looking” pose (see above) 💁🏻‍♀️ and if there was a photogenic wall to be standing in front of you’ll find us there.

And let’s face it – we all love to see this and for me I love to take them!

But how far does this go? Do people just look at everyone’s photos as just that – a photo? Or do they see the thought and background process behind it? If yes then is it a pisstake when you see someone ripping off someone else’s creative content on to their own feed? Or is it a thing of the “now”?

What can we really do?

I’m asking these all in rhetorical questions as I genuinely don’t know the answer.

I have came across more and more accounts over the last few months that when I look at them they just scream another bloggers name to me.

A little bit of me feels like sending them to said blogger and being like “ hun does this not piss you off” in hindsight though what can they do? Is it a compliment? Or is it a rip off on someone else’s work?

Personally, I would for sure be annoyed. However if someone bought a dress i popped up over on the gram and gave me credits for the inspo I would be all sorts of delighted. Does the difference then lie with giving the person the credit for the idea…

We all seek a majority of our day to day inspiration and ideas from social media; so can we really be annoyed if someone takes an idea off our accounts? Does this copycat notion run true to you or is imitation a form of flattery?

Lotsa love
