Positivity and Friendship

Written by InnocentCharmsChats. Posted in 2013

Trying to find a shining light through the dark clouds has been hard these past few months. But friendship and positivity is what will see me through.

I reminded myself of a post I wrote back at the end of 2014, talking of the wise words a great friend gave me, why am I struggling to regain control, why can I not achieve what I promised myself I would ?

I am admitting defeat, life needs to change and it is time I really do take control.

I have seen my doctor, my health issues have become very bad and he agreed so many referrals are in place, I have spoken to my rock (Ashley) time after time and he knows I am in a dark place and I know with his help and some close friends I will come out of it.

I wasn’t sure of that months ago, but now I am, having Ashley and some truly amazing, genuine friends in my life for the first time I think ever I will get there.


Today I am starting again, I am going to start my lists, lists are my way of getting control and I am going to tick things off. I am going to create happy memories.

I am going to see the light, I am going to be realistic and stop hoping for miracles. Small steps.

And receiving messages like this today means I know I have people to help me get there. Love you my dear friends.

Power of positivity

This boy loves to now have his picture taken, he will run to this tree ready for his Blogging Mama to say “say cheese” and he will adorn his crazy cheese face all the while styling so well whatever delights I have pulled from his wardrobe, never complaining, there are benefits to a 2-year-old then.

*Leggings – Zara

Home Trends | Flamingo’s

Written by InnocentCharmsChats. Posted in Home & Interiors

This week Addison & Deacon’s room tour was featured over at Life With Munchers for her Bloggers Home segment. As I was looking at their room I noticed Addison had picked a few Flamingo items. She loves animals and pink so it’s not shocking and it was interesting to see she is bang on trend.

Flamingo Homewares

Flamingo’s are heavily featured in home and fashion trends currently, they have such a Summery feel it is not surprising, so I thought I would share some of the Flamingo finds I found for the home this week.

Flamingo's at Home by Innocent Charms Chats


I could have shared over 20 things, but I thought I would show you a small selection, every shop is selling, above the items come from M&S, Debenhams, Primark and more. I love that not everyone is going all out gaudy with it, Primark actually in particular with the Mug (6) have done it so well, I think I need to add that to my Mug collection.
So are you loving the Flamingo trend ? Do you have pieces in your home? If so I would love to see some pictures tag me in them.

#BEDM – Share The Blog Love

Written by InnocentCharmsChats. Posted in 2015

As some of you will know I took up the challenge for a second year in a row to Blog Everyday In May. I am loving how much it is spurring me on, I am one who works well under pressure or to a challenge and I am really hoping to make the whole month. If only I could get some time to schedule some posts in.

What I love about the project is that Elizabeth sets daily prompts but these are just a guide, most days I have not really stuck to them, but I think some times it is great as it guides you to blogging about something different from the norm, as I think we can all get stuck blogging the same subjects.

Today she asked us to Share the blog love. How difficult is this, I have over 200 blogs that I subscribe to, some I remember each day, some I forget for months and then have a splurge, so I have picked 5 that have stood out to me in the past few weeks for different aspects of my life.

1. My Two Mums and Just Me Kirsty

Same people as such, My Two Mums is written by Kirsty and Clara, simple like it says 2 Mums raising a gorgeous little boy. Their blog brings many parenting posts as well as great insight into how being a gay couple with a child is really not that different from being straight. Both total sweethearts they are a must follow. Just Me Kirsty is a personal blog written by Kirsty more about her loves, likes and journey, very thought provoking it is a good read for anyone on a path to strive for happiness.

2. Life With Munchers

Sarah writes a great blog about parenting with a lifestyle focus. I love Sarah’s homeware posts, she is super styling and always finds great pieces on the internet. She is currently pregnant with baby number 2 so she is also sharing her journey. If you like homewares and Interior design do go pop by.

3. Mrs Bebe Blog

I love Mrs Bebe, she was one of the first Plus Size bloggers I found last year and I still pop by every few days. Her outfits are always styled beautifully, she finds great unknown brands and always makes me feel better about me. She pushes my boundaries with her clothes and always inspires me to buy new treats.

4. Stationery Lovers

I think it is quite self-explanatory from the name why I love Stationery Lovers, but for those who don’t realise I am a total stationery nut and Stationery Lovers help to embrace that and show me things I never knew existed from the Stationery world that of course I need!

5. Along Came Cherry

I find Jess always has me gripped with her blog posts, I don’t pop by regularly but when I do I read all her posts. Her posts kind of fall into several categories for me and what I like about her blog is that it is a real mix, not one defined subject. I have just written this after reading this post, do go and read and I think you will see why I have added her to the list.

I am always on the look out for new blogs to love though so please do leave me your links below, the list could honestly be endless, blogging is a great community where you can find a blog about any subject you love.
