Can I start by saying that I don’t generally remove my shower products from the bathroom and arrange them on my bed with a carefully positioned towel (usually found slung over something), a bunch of flowers (£3.30 in the reduced section of Tesco), and, inexplicably, a chopping board (lives in the kitchen, been used to… Continue reading Winter bath and body treats
In recent weeks I’ve been thinking a lot about the way that creativity and inspiration come – and go - in waves. I suppose in some ways, this has been on my mind because I’m going through quite a busy period; I’ve lacked the headspace for anything other than the most mediocre of posts on… Continue reading The ebb and flow of creativity
I absolutely love a good city break; they’re such a brilliant way to fit travel around full time work, are always good fun and tend to be relatively affordable since they’re not too long. I’ve been lucky enough to go on some really great ones over the past few years - but there’s always somewhere… Continue reading A European city break wishlist
Never did I ever…think that I would write a post for the fashion category of my blog about cardigans. It’s happening though, guys; the cardigan is back and I'm actually wearing one. It’s been quite difficult to avoid them until now if I’m honest, because they’ve been all over the place for the last few… Continue reading Return of the cardigan
Lately I’ve not really felt like my best self, so I'd like to invite you to what is shaping up to be some kind of personal therapy session, because today I'm going to go into why. I highly doubt there will be a structure to this post but I suspect it could be a long… Continue reading Can I get a refill, please?
It’s been a while since I’ve done a beauty post, so let’s talk skincare. I’ve been dipping in and out of the Superdrug Vitamin E range for a few years now, and have always been fairly impressed with most of the things I’ve tried, but since going cruelty-free this year they’ve been one of my… Continue reading Superdrug Vitamin E skincare; what’s worth trying?
If you’ve read this blog before, it will probably be obvious that one of my favourite trends of 2017 is gingham. I've done multiple outfit posts including gingham items now and at one point I was really struggling to prevent my Instagram feed becoming a constant stream of checks and not a lot else, because… Continue reading The easiest way to take gingham into autumn/winter
Okay, I admit it. I’m easily influenced. We usually just buy our yearly pumpkins from Morrisons or Sainsburys or something, but the stream of pumpkin picking photos all over Instagram got me keen on a trip beyond the supermarket this year. I thought I would pop up the photos in a blog post, since I… Continue reading We went pumpkin picking | White House Farm, Norwich
Allow me to set up this post by telling you about a common scenario in our house; It’s Saturday, and I am intending to publish a blog post on Sunday. I don’t have photos for it yet, so I need to take them today. I do my hair and make up then get into the… Continue reading Learning to brush off life’s little irritations
Welcome back to another instalment of Making My Wardrobe Work Harder, my ‘once a month’ series that definitely doesn’t happen once a month. It’s official – I’ve scrapped the idea of trying to do it that frequently. In fact, next time, when I inevitably take ages to do another one, I don't think I'll even… Continue reading Making my wardrobe work harder: the trench coat
