Week 2 The Ashley and Laurie link-up

Week 2 already… I do hope last week was kind to you? My week went like a little like this…

Week 2 #AshleyandLaurielinkup

First let me say a big thank you to everyone who linked up with Laurie and I and left comments on both our blogs. It was so interesting to read all your blogs. I picked up some tasty recipe ideas, I learnt lots about you and generally enjoyed a thoroughly good read of your posts.

Read week one of the link up

 My week:

When the days fly by so fast I sometimes have to refer to my instagram accounts to see what we have been up to! Modern life eh? Plus my memory is rubbish these days!

The Good:

  • It stopped raining for 2 days.
  • I am working on a collaboration with my fave store ever Anthropologie!
  • I made a scary life changing decision but the minute I made it I felt a huge weight lift from my shoulders.

The Bad:

  • Hurricane Irma visited my Mums house in florida (she is fine and it could have been worse.)
  • It was back to school week in the uk, so hard to get back in the swing of things…
  • It rained for 5 days on and off


The Ugly:

  • The dog pooped in the lounge and believe me you dont need to see that! So here is the latest pic I took of him in the bath …


week 2 ashley and laurie linkup


Here’s to another fun filled (?) week…ahem


My chosen featured bloggers from last week are:

ashley and laurie link up featured bloggers

from L to R

Jessica from Vinegar and Vanilla and Shelbee from Shelbee On the Edge. 

Both of these blogs are new to me. Jessica writes wonderful thought provoking posts (do have a read) and Shelbee is another inspiring, strong woman, with a tale to tell.

I love that we are all so different and from all over the world but we come together and ‘listen and support’ each other through this amazing blogosphere.

Pop over to Laurie’s blog to see who she chose?

Join us for Week 2 of the #AshleyandLaurieLinkup ?


ashley and laurie link up badge


I am sure you know how a link up works, but if not a quick recap for you…

When and where:

Every Thursday from 7am, on both our blogs.


Any post on any subject you like from the last week. Instagram pics welcome too! (Please note your links are added are in random order.)


  1. You will discover new blogs to read and other people can discover your blog too. Win win!
  2. Laurie and I will each pick someone to feature each week from the week before, on both our blogs.
  3. It’s going to be lots of fun.

Link-up Etiquette

“We dont like rules, so anything goes…so play nice and be polite” 

However, because you are getting two links for the price of one, all we ask is that you leave a comment on both our blogs?  Afterall you wouldn’t go to a party and ignore the host now would you?

(We may choose to remove your link if you haven’t done this!)


If you like a pretty badge (who doesn’t?) then we would love you to use this one and spread the news.

Remember to copy all the code to add it to your blog post or sidebar.
