Week 13 Ashley and Laurie Linkup

Week 13 and not week 12? I an such a ‘dimwit’ can you believe I forgot to post week 12! Poor Laurie was completely on her own last week. The problem is at this time of year I am working on so many projects and posts that I can hardly find the time to fit them all in.

Laurie and I have had a chat and decided that this will be our last week for the Link up for this year! In this way we will have more days left during the run up to the holidays to post about all our other ideas.week 13 lazy daisy jones River island orange knitwear walking the dog


How was your week ?

I am sure that my American friends will have had lots to write about due to it being Thanksgiving weekend in the US, therefore I hope you all had a super time with or without your family!

My week 13…

Mine has been quiet and uneventful. My son is sitting his mock exams this week, so I am driving him to and from school everyday as the journey takes 3hrs out of my day it actually doesn’t leave much time for doing anything else.

So I have been relaxing and walking the dog! It is so lovely to get out in the fresh air sometimes isn’t it?Week 13 lazy daisy jones River island orange knitwear walking the dog


I have however been writing more and more about fashion on the blog and I am truly enjoying it!

I wrote about my Autumn boots and my furry Yellow coat:

So enough about me, I want to know what you have all been up to?

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, anything goes…just 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?

Ok lets link up!

    I love that we’re both shining in our yellow outfits this week Ashley, me in my yellow dress and you in your Big Bird coat! I can so understand you ladies taking a bit of time out this month – it’s such a busy time for us with a family, never mind the call of the blog too! Hope you have a wonderful time in the run up to Christmas and will catch up soon!

    Ashley, thank you so much for the feature this week! I am glad you enjoyed my unique gift ideas for fashionistas post! And how honored I am that you called me one of your favorite bloggers whom you’ve met through your link up! Yet another reason that I love blogging, the blogging community, and the connections we make through linking up! I am loving your orange sweater and your yellow coat. The colors are so amazing and fun for the dreary colder months. I wish you and Laurie a very happy holiday season. I will be popping by weekly even without the link up!
