A shocking confession: I almost never clothes shop online

The 'confession' I'm going to share today seems strange considering that 1) I spend a LOT of time on the internet, and 2) I post a shameful number of photos of myself loitering in the street to illustrate my outfits. Obviously I put it in the title (the clickbait was ridiculous with just the first… Continue reading A shocking confession: I almost never clothes shop online

SO sorry for the delayed response; will I ever get on top of life admin?

It was nearly 2am when I started this blog post, having intended to spend the entirety of the evening in question writing one. Not this one, actually, but another that I was yet to think of a subject for (so maybe this one? Who really knows) and never got around to doing. The reason? Admin.… Continue reading SO sorry for the delayed response; will I ever get on top of life admin?

Five things I want to make time for in the UK this summer

I think we can safely say that summer is officially here in the UK now – as safely as we ever can, in any case, which is probably not very safe at all, but my boobs are currently sunburnt and that’s what I’m basing my confidence in the matter on. In lieu of having any… Continue reading Five things I want to make time for in the UK this summer

Let’s catch up: what’s been happening (and what I’ve been wearing) in June

I’m writing this on a train, which is one of my favourite things about trains; you don’t have to be doing anything else because travelling from one place to another is the thing that you’re doing, so you can use the time to catch up on all the things that have fallen by the wayside… Continue reading Let’s catch up: what’s been happening (and what I’ve been wearing) in June

Will this be the year I shake off summer dressing dread? (Spoiler: no, but let’s talk about it anyway)

My first denim skirt wearing session of the year lasted a grand total of about 90 minutes and exposed parts of my legs that hadn’t been exposed in a while to the people of Norwich. I spent the whole of said 90 minutes excruciatingly aware of this fact, pulling the stupid thing down every few… Continue reading Will this be the year I shake off summer dressing dread?

28 things that, at the age of 28, I am still yet to master

For anyone who doesn’t follow me on Instagram and therefore didn’t have the pleasure of seeing me make a big song and dance about it, it was my birthday at the weekend. I turned 28. This is the blog post that would have gone up on my birthday/the day after if I wasn't too busy… Continue reading 28 things that, at the age of 28, I am still yet to master

On recognising what we really need – not just what we think we do

I don’t think there’s an hour that goes by that I don’t utter a sentence starting ‘I need to…’. The end of said sentence takes different forms, of course, but it’s usually along the lines of ‘get that done today’ or ‘reply to messages’ or ‘go to the gym’ or ‘be productive’. Last weekend it… Continue reading On recognising what we really need – not just what we think we do

Summer might actually be on the horizon and it’s making me excited

This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Nicce I can smell summer approaching. Perhaps it’s something to do with our hottest early May bank holiday on record or perhaps it’s something to do with what’s flowering in parks and gardens, but over the past few days I’ve been gleefully breathing in the air in… Continue reading Summer might actually be on the horizon and it’s making me excited

It’s time to say goodbye to self doubt (because it’s making me completely fucking useless)

It took me a grand total of 57 minutes to reply to an email the other day. Fifty seven. Nearly an hour. The word count of said email? Also 57, if you exclude the greeting, pleasantries and sign off, which I will because I can and it works better for what I’m about to say.… Continue reading It’s time to say goodbye to self doubt (because it’s making me completely fucking useless)

A reintroduction: 7 things you might not know about me

I realised recently that when I first started being so bold as to write about myself on the internet, I never properly introduced myself. I figured at the time that a post that said ‘hello I am Sophie and I live here and do this’ was probably a post that no one would want to… Continue reading A reintroduction: 7 things you might not know about me
