Ashley And Laurie’s Link Up

Hi Everyone.

A huge thank you to everyone that linked up last week. Your weekly visits really mean a lot. If you’re new here this week, a warm welcome to you and I hope you enjoy finding new blogs and friends.

It’s been family time for me I’m in Essex this week!

What have I been up to this week? Busy with the family catching up with everyone in Essex. I had five of the eight grandchildren for a day and it was lovely but tiring! I love watching them all play together and it amazes me how similarities turn up in all their personalities. Genetics amaze me and I find it all very interesting.

I did manage to get that vlog done though!

I’m still finding the vlogging hit and miss! I chatted about the Tria Antiageing Laser and would love some feedback from you all. And if you really want to make my day please subscribe! There’s a lot more to come via Vlogging, I’m determined to master it! I love a challenge!

I also edited my wish list for a new brand to share with you

Ashley is not linking this week with us. She has just returned from holiday.

Come link up your posts!


Every Thursday from 7 am.


Link to Ashley and me, even better link to both of us? This will equal more visibility for your blog too.


Any post on any subject you like from the last week. Instagram pics welcome too!


  1. You will discover new blogs to read and other people can discover your blog too. Win win!
  2. Ashley and I will each pick someone to feature each week from the week before, on both our blogs.
  3. It’s going to be lots of fun.

How to:

The easiest way is to simply add a link to this page into the post you want to link-up with us.

Then come back to our Weekly Thursday posts and add your own link.  A comment is always appreciated too, plus it’s a great way for us all to get to know each other.

If you tweet or share we will do our best to tweet or share your posts too!

Link-up Etiquette

“We don’t like rules, so anything goes…so play nice and be polite” 

However, because you are getting two links for the price of one, all we ask is that you leave a comment on both our blogs?  Afterall you wouldn’t go to a party and ignore the host now, would you?


We may choose to remove your link if you haven’t done this!

    Laurie, thank you so so much!!! I never expect anyone else to appreciate my outfits because they never seem to quite be everyone’s cup of tea for the most part so the fact that you picked mine as your fave just utterly made my week 🙂 XOXO

    It sounds like you had some great family time! It’s important to take time to wind down once in a while. I love your post! Happy weekend!

    Oh wow, 8 grandchildren. Aww, I bet it is lovely 🙂 Thanks for the invite and hosting Laurie, I have lots of fashion post planned but not got around to posting them yet so have linked up my Halloween gift guide 🙂

    8 grandchildren? Wow! I get tired just thinking about that! Haha, enjoy your weekend!

    Love your Vlog, Laurie! So fun to actually see people you admire in photos come to life 🙂 I’ve been working on some videos myself, but I am still trying to figure out how to squeeze more hours out of my day. It seems that the day is over as quickly as it begins and I’m never able to finish my projects. Very frustrating.

    You look fabulous in your beautiful red dress! A great color on you!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Laurie, it sounds like a wonderful day you had with all the grandchildren! And that red dress! Sheesh…it’s gorgeous. I love the striking effect created by a beautiful, bold red dress. And you accomplished striking quite well! Thanks for the link up and have a fabulous day!
