Bobble Hats, Trolls & Winter Coats #LittleLoves

life as our little family

As the gorgeous Morgana is having a magical time in Disney Land Paris with her Mr and girls, I am stepping in and hosting this weeks #littleloves. I do hope you’ll join me in celebrating all of your little loves from the week gone by. What can I tell you about this week – it’s been blooming cold hasn’t it? The temperature really has dropped, I’m sat here writing this weeks post wrapped in a cosy blanket, but if truth be told I have loved digging out my winter coats. I may have nipped to the shops to add a couple more to the collection as well as a bobble hat or two. Confession time, my name is Kerri-Ann, I am thirty six and I am a shopaholic. There I said it, who’s with me?

And so, here are this week’s little loves…


It’s that time of the month again for my Red magazine to make its way through my letterbox. I am loving all the winter themed reading on the shelves at the moment. You can’t beat a bit of Jamie in the run up to the festive period.

It’s all about the Trolls for our little family this week. If you haven’t been to see the movie yet, you really should make the effort. And definitely watch this little you tube clip, it will have you and your littles laughing out loud. Its such a feel good movie, we were meant to watch it a few weeks ago and I am so glad that we finally fit it into our plans. There are some really heart felt and inspiring messages for us all to remember but more importantly it is one of those fun movies to watch as a family.


The Sound by The 1975 and The Trolls sound track. I can see this sound track being played each time Lil G is in the car. I love his enthusiasm for music, as we watched the movie he was toe tapping and dancing in his seat, little cutie, he put on quite a show, very entertaining.


Lil G was so excited to finally get round to completing the skittles experiment. Have you seen it on You Tube? Take a look. I think we’re going to make a few more shapes at the weekend.

Winter coats and bobble hats. On Saturday I nipped into Primark and picked up these bargain bobble hats for just GBP3 each. I also saw the pink pea coat on the left in Primark, I couldn’t resist, there is nothing at all that suggests it is a mere GBP28. The quality, look and feel is so much more luxurious. It has fast become my favourites and has had a whole lot of love over on my Instagram. As the temperatures have dropped I have really enjoyed popping my tights and boots on, lets not forget a cheeky bit of leopard print! Who doesn’t love layers.

And lastly…

The Instagram community #MyFamilyAdventures which I created has really taken off and after 5 weeks I am so so delighted with how many of you are taking part each week. Thank you. I would love you to join in with sharing your adventures whether big or small. Do pop by, its such a beautiful gallery and certainly my happy place at the moment, I keep losing far too much time scrolling through all your beautiful moments captured.

Thank you for popping by in Morgana’s absence. Normal service will resume next week which I am sure will be one huge Disney filled little loves. How exciting. It’s only 8 weeks until we visit and after seeing Morgana’s snaps over on IG I am literally bursting with excitement. Have a great weekend little loves crew, don’t forget to grab the badge and link up…

  4. Jade @ Captured By Jade

    It has been absolutely freezing! I’ve pulled out the winter warmers this week – scarf, gloves, hat, thick jumpers! Love the new additions to your wardrobe and the picture of you both in your bobble hats is too cute!
    The skittle experiment looks really cool! I hope you have a great weekend!

  5. Life As Our Little Family

    Ooh I do love the winter warmers, I’m sad to see grey skies though. I think this photo is one of my faces x

  6. Halina Vie Choufleur

    Love those hats and that coat! I definitely need a good Primark rummage at some point but it’s so hard to find the alone time. Thanks for hosting this week…I’m trying to ignore the fact I’ve spelled my blog name wrong in the linky *d’oh*

  7. Life As Our Little Family

    Oh you do, I have to admit to not being a Primark fan usually apart from when I find a gem like these x

  8. Emily and Indiana

    I’ve heard such great reviews of Trollz, I’m sure my little ones would love it! I’ve loved joining in with your Insta community, such a lovely collection of images xx

  9. Life As Our Little Family

    Oh you have to go watch it. And thank you for joining in x

  10. Ah love this post full of happiness KA. And how many coats do you own?! I bought a new one a few weeks ago from New Look and just love it – pale grey but similar to that pink one from Primark. Can’t imagine what on earth I did before owning it lol! My girls went to see Trolls this week and have since downloaded the soundtrack. It’s obviously a good one! x

  11. Life As Our Little Family

    Aww thank you Suzanne. I am a little obsessed that’s for sure. Ooh my pale grey is from New Look too. Have a lovely weekend xx

  12. Great round up this week K-A! It’s certainly been cold this week and I have dug out my winter coat and hat! Trolls was so good wasn’t it? I came out feeling really happy, such a feel good film! Love your pink coat! Hope you have a wonderful weekend xx

  13. Life As Our Little Family

    Aww thank you honey. Blooming freezing. The pink coat is my all time favourite at the minute x

  14. Love those hats! Glad you enjoyed trolls – I’ve heard lots of good things about it. Thank you for hosting ???? #littleloves

  15. Life As Our Little Family

    They’re so cute aren’t they. Trolls was blooming brilliant. Have a lovely week x

  16. Trolls sounds great. Love the look of the skittles experiment. Enjoy your reading, love the look of both mags.

  17. Life As Our Little Family

    It was a great movie, I’m excited to read more of them both X

  18. Gemma @ gemslittletreasures

    Absolutely loving your bobble hat and coat collection. I must say i did spy them in Primark and got all the heart eyes! Trolls looks fab and seems to have a lot of good reviews so far I’m just not sure LB would sit still in the cinema just yet. Trying to get him to sit still long enough at home is a drama in itself. Such a wriggle butt! Only 8 weeks till your Disney trip-eek! I’m so jealous of all this Disney magic going on – i wanna go back! x

  19. Life As Our Little Family

    Aww thank you Gemma, oh you should buy them, such a bargain. It’s actually 6 weeks, I didn’t realise, yay for small surprises. Maybe wait until it comes out, G has always been a film buff X

  20. Tracey Williams

    Love your coat collection KA but I think it would take me ages in the morning deciding which one to wear. Love the bobble hats, and what a bargain at £3. I have heard so many good things about Trolls. I might have to insist that Katie watches it with me. Thanks for hosting whilst Morgana is immersed in the Disney bubble x

  21. Life As Our Little Family

    Thank you honey, I’m not ashamed to admit that I am a little obsessed. Oh you must watch trolls it’s blooming lovely and lots of belly laughs x

  22. Your coats are stunning I wish I had such a collection. I love a good winter new coat. I am linking up with last week’s post because I was in Spain and totally pushed it live but forgot to link it up and sadly we have nothing but vomit bug to share this week. It’s awful we landed and instantly one by one we were heads in the toilet for four days. It’s been so boring half term ending and tiring too. Ugh. I heard such great things about Trolls. Thanks for hosting my lovely. Jealous of our little hostess off in Disney! Looks amazing.

  23. Life As Our Little Family

    Thank you honey, I do believe I am obsessed with coats & shoes. Oh my goodness your week sounds blooming awful. I hope you’re all on the mend x

  24. Wow, I’ve never seen someone with so many coats. What a fab collection! I got a new coat this week too, it’s literally like a sleeping bag – I love it! The bobble hats are also lovely, great for the change in the weather! Enjoy your weekend xx

  25. Life As Our Little Family

    Ha ha really? There’s only a couple which are full on winter coats. I guess the rest are good Autumn/Spring coats too. Have a lovely weekend x

  26. Mum Reinvented

    Doubt the skittles would last long enough to do that experiment with my two around! We watched Trolls this week too, such a lovely film! Hope you have a lovely weekend x

  27. Life As Our Little Family

    Ha ha it did take all Lil G’s will power not to eat them. Have a lovely weekend

  28. RachelSwirl

    I love those boots/ shoes, they are sooo lovely! I hope Morgana is having the time of her life over there in Disney, thanks for hosting #LittleLoves

  29. Life As Our Little Family

    I have seen her photos over on IG and I think it is safe to say that they have and thank you for joining in this week x

  30. Chantal Milk&Nappies

    Oh I love all your bobble hats and coats! I have one coat and no hats, so I really need to sort my life out! Haha!! xx

  31. Life As Our Little Family

    Thank you, I do love a bobble hat and nearly picked up another today x

  32. What a coat and hat collection you have. We did the skittle experiment with the children at my work and they where mesmerised.

  33. Life As Our Little Family

    Ha ha I am definitely obsessed. Its such a simple experiment don’t you think?

  34. Thanks so much for hosting lovely! It was a relief to know that LittleLoves was in good hands and I didn’t need to worry about it while we were away. I’m definitely going to be making a trip to Primark for that coat! I spotted it on your Insta and wondered where it was from. xx

  35. Life As Our Little Family

    You are so very welcome honey, it has been a pleasure to pop over to everyones posts. Oh you should lovely, its blooming amazing and for £25 a must. x

  36. Cal at Family Makes

    It’s been lovely to ‘meet’ you this week, and I love the photo of you both in your gorgeous bobble hats! You have quite a coat collection too, I’m sure you’re going to be warm and snug all winter! Thanks for hosting #LittleLoves
