So, thank you Morgana for keeping this little linky going!
Anyway, its been a big week, with Ava off at school for her first full week, so here it is in a nutshell!
Well this ones quite exciting, because although I haven't read it yet, I have ordered it and I'm VERY excited about doing so. My lovely friend Lisa is Head make-up artist over at Benefit Make-up, and last week she released her book, "Easy on the Eyes" (which incredibly has already gone to #1 bestseller on Amazon's beauty section!) On Tuesday last week, we headed up to London for a little launch party and a delicious meal!! So I'm excited about reading this one when it finally lands on my doorstep. You can buy it here!

I'm kind of ashamed to admit that in all my thirty years, I had never seen Les Miserables before last weekend. I was babysitting for some friends, while Dave manned the fort at home, and I noticed the film on their shelves. Some of the singing was a bit iffy, but the story was incredible and I'd love to actually go and see the musical now... What a story of grace and redemption! I think Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman stole the show for me!

One of the perks of being a multilingual family is that you get a broader range of music options. This week, I've been loving listening to my favourite German band, Silbermond. My favourite always was and still is "Symphonie"... Why not take a listen, even if you don't speak German... Music is an international language after all!
I've been loving pulling out the autumn clothes, although I'm hanging onto my new summer shoes as long as possible. Boots mean winter's definitely on its way!
Ava, meanwhile, has been adjusting to wearing her uniform every day! The minute she's home, it is strewn across her bedroom floor (we're working on that!) and replaced by one of her Princess dresses! We're having fun coming up with some new schoolgirl hairstyles though!
Yummy marshmallow cupcakes! We're big Hummingbird Bakery fans round here, and on Tuesday, I had promised the girls we could do a little bit of baking.
Needless to say, they're gone already!
It's been a funny old week, adjusting back to routine. Ava has settled really well into her new school and in the meantime, my two littles are having a little bonding time of their own. When Ava's around, the two girl are thick as thieves, so its nice for Heidi and Jonas to get a bit of time to themselves too... I'm so excited to watch their little friendship develop over the next few months...
And that's our week in a nutshell!
