The Ordinary Moments – Birthday Beach Fun

Written by InnocentCharmer. Posted in 2014

As it was Mr Innocent Charmer’s Birthday on Friday and the weather was glorious we decided a trip to the Beach was a great idea.

We already had a child free day planned to London on Saturday so we wanted to do something that was nice for all of us, we live 30 minutes from the beach but don’t go very often, in fact this was Addison and Deacon’s first real time, they have been for Fish N Chips on the seafront but not a full beach experience.

We played Sandcastles, paddled our feet in the sea, ran with the wind in our hair and ate a picnic lunch.

Grayson walked and walked, loving the feel of sand between his toes, he even braved the crashing waves, being such a Superhero and loving the whole adventure.

This is going on the wall

Addison is so a beach baby, she was so enthralled by the whole experience and was so disappointed when we had to leave, it was so beautiful watching her experience everything I did as a child living on the Kentish Seaside.

Deacon on the other hand hated the whole thing, he is a little wussy with new adventures still, I am hoping over the next few months he will change a little, maybe he is like his Mummy and prefers a pebble beach.

Paddling with my big boy – miracles do come true!

It was as perfect as it gets (other than way to many sand flies) I really felt so proud watching my 2 big babies enjoy the day so much, I am sure we will be visiting a lot more when the Sun returns.

Me and You {July 2014}

Happy Birthday Mr Innocent Charmer - 37 years young!

Time as a couple is crucial, life is hard, especially lately, so to have an hour, 2 or a whole day just the two of us is very precious.

We were very lucky that the Grandparents offered to have the kids for the day so I could treat Ashley to a trip to London for his Birthday, the Mr loves the Big Smoke, he loves to walk round, people watch, shop and most importantly we love to eat in peace.

As it was his Birthday we decided on a special treat to, which was a trip up The Shard – it is on my Day Zero Project list and I am so glad I finally got to treat him to it as he has been wanting to for an age.

The Shard

I am not good with heights, but surprisingly The Shard did not bother me at all, in fact it was pretty awesome, I would recommend it, although much better on a clear day you can see further.

I love that Ashley totally embraces my blogging life, my selfies and many a please take a photo for the blog moment. I know not all men would like to be plastered all over the internet but he does not mind.

Here is to another year and another Birthday, the big 40 is going to be so so special, I have plans!

What I Wore – Family Day of Fun

Written by InnocentCharmer. Posted in 2014, Plus Size Fashion

Where has Summer gone ? Well in Kent it has been replaced with cold and rain, I mind neither other than it is July and we have packed away the winter clothes.

On Saturday I took Addison to a trampoline party in the morning (in which I had to get on and bounce – eek), I knew we would be heading straight out for dinner with my Dad so my outfit had to be suitable for all tasks.

I love this Kimono, it has featured in 2 What I Wore posts before now and it really can be worn in many looks, the neon touches are so me. As it was raining my Boots came back out, they are super comfy and I love the edgy look they have.


Outfit Details

Glasses – D & G

Kimono – New Look at ASOS

Tee – H & M

Skirt – Indigo at M & S

Leggings – Next

Boots – Fly London


I also used my gorgeous new Zatchel which was on sale, it is such good quality


Up close detail of my gorgeous Necklace, it was a custom design made for myself and Ashley for our Wedding anniversary by my beautiful friend Jo, check out here for more details, you will not be disappointed.

I quite like this outfit, I just need some new leggings, all of mine fit badly and I use them as a staple for so many outfits, if you know of any good ones please do tell.

Living Arrows {14th July 2014}

Written by InnocentCharmer. Posted in 2014, grayson

Seeing your children grow is a pleasure that we must relish, the girls at I Heart Snapping realised this and created a wonderful weekly linky called Living Arrows. I love taking part and creating a small diary of events in my babies lives.

This week has been a hard week for Grayson and us as Grayson’s family and the next shall not get any easier, so it was lovely to head out to an early dinner with family on Saturday and then to a park on the beach for an evening swing.

Swinging is one of Grayson’s ultimate past times, he would do it for hours, now he is enjoying even more when out and about too as he is finally noticing a world further than his own.

Watching him enjoy the sea air and look as his cousin Ivy giggled in the swing next to him was just magical.


Do go and check out some truly beautiful photos over at I Heart Snapping.
