times they are a changing....

hello lovelies... happy monday to you all... hope you've had marvellous weekends.
me and my boy are having a really chilled monday... its so nice to do nothing sometimes, something i rarely seem to do.
so as today is a super chilled day.. there's pretty much nothing to see here, apart from me and neo in pj's.
so here's yesterdays outfit...

there must have been something reeeallly interesting on the floor!

Peter pan collar shirt
Red skinny Cords
Tan boots
all fromNext


i adore this shirt. its pretty and casual.. and pretty and causal is all that im after on a weekend. It has a little neck tie that is detachable too, so when Neo decidedes to grab the daggly pretty neck tie, and mummys had enough, off it comes.  practical, pretty and casual! thats a good shirt!
Ive never worn it with the red skinny cords but liked the outcome

Now as the title mentions... things may will be changing up a bit round here. Im really excited. I have this this lovely lady designing a a nice new web home for me. i have a couple of new monthly features id like to introduce you too and lastly and most importantly, im thinking of a name change.
Now to me this is MAJOR. i have never loved the name im currently with. As much as i think alll us mummys should be yummy, this blog has gone in a different direction to what i first imagined. Its better!  so i feel i need a new name, something thats more.... me, ya know?
So lovely people i ask of you to give me your honest opinions in the comments below of what you think of my suggestions:

reason being... i constantly say on here... excuse my messy hair... its a permanent fixture in my life... i will live and die with bed head. i have come to accept this :)

my style is retro/ vintage... i know what i like regardless of whats in, and this is it... what you see :) plus obviously, im a mama lol!

C. ELEPHANT JUICE cos if you say this it looks like you're saying i love you... i've loved this since i was a kiddy

cracking song, and the blog is about all the crazy little things i love :)

E. keep current name

now these are my only suggestions right now... i may change my mind allll over again cos im stupidly fickle like that, but i would love to know what you think.. your opinion means lots and lots.

anywhhooo, wishing you all a lovely week this week! im off to go cook a very lazy lunch for me and neo and then an extra dose of cuddles on the sofa

Take care all

linking up with these lovelies today :)


Momma Go Round


  1. Hi Rach, love your outfit (as always!). I never see you as having 'messy hair' so I wouldn't go for that one :). I really like Retro Style Mama or Crazy Little Thing Called Love - I'll be singing that song in my head all day! Hope you pick one you will be happy with, I know I agonised over my name change - but it really works for me now! Have a fabby day chick! x

  2. I love Retro Style fits you!

  3. Youre really good at looking put together without it looking forced. I love your look :)

  4. I adore your Peter Pan collared shirt. You pull it off very well! I also decided to refresh my blog with a new design - it's nice to update it to reflect your current feelings and thoughts.

  5. Hi Rachel!

    You look really lovely with that high bun and red lipstick! I also have found a new love for plaid within myself, its definitely been my goto this winter thus far!


  6. Oh!Lovely outfit!I fell in love with your shirt!It gives a coulour's touch to your outfit!

    Love you style and your Blog!


    I'm your follower now!!

  7. Oh!Lovely outfit!I fell in love with your shirt!It gives a coulour's touch to your outfit!

    Love you style and your Blog!


    I'm your follower now!!

  8. Hi Rachel! God I am LOVING that shirt: the collar! the print! the bow! It suits you perfectly! And I def. think 'Retro Style Mama': I'm always drawn to blog links with names where it's clear what it's about - from that name you know a. She's a mummy, b.It's a blog about style, and c.What sort of style she has. No contest.

    And thank you for your lovely comment on mine - I'll let you in on a secret: it's not a real plait! It's simply a fake plait headband... you can get them on ebay. Search for Plait Hairband - they're only a few quid (but choose the £4 ish ones, not the 99p ones!). Go get one, they're brilliant! (Longest comment ever??)

  9. I love Elephant Juice or Crazy Little Thing Called Love (which I would be tempted to change it to Crazy Little Things I Love) I love quirky names, but you need to pick what you feel most happy with xxx

  10. What a cute collar and plaid! Love the boots to.


  11. I really like your outfit here because it's so cute and chic :) love how you also put your hair into a bun! I like the name Elephant Juice because that's something quite special and unique!

  12. The messy bun is so on trend! Love the plaid.

  13. I hope that just posted and didn't just disaoear off somewhere LOL

    Sal xXx

  14. Ahhh no it would appear that it didn't - literally!

    I said That I like your hair like that and you'd make-up - You look fab!

    And that for some reason I like the title Elephant Juice the most for your blog :)

    Sal xXx

  15. you look really lovely here. and the background with the gorgeous hills?? unreal. i can't believe you actually live near this landscape and get to see it on what i'm assuming is a daily basis. it looks (in my mind) so very quintessential english countryside. ::swoon::

    as for names, i like elephant juice the best. i'm a sucker for interesting names and if i saw this one, it'd pique my interest. runner up is messy haired mama because it's just so dang cute.

    can't wait to see the new design!

  16. I like these photos so much! This is such a cool post!
