Read. Watch. Listen. | Volume 4

Well, reader: the world is a strange place right now (how many times have you heard that in the past few weeks?!). With an appreciation for the little things seemingly more heightened and routine habits and hobbies valued more than ever, things to read, watch and listen to have begun to take on a new importance for me; there… Continue reading Read.

30 noughties films for anyone who needs a bit of nostalgia right now

I’ve never written anything about films because, if I do say so myself, I have truly terrible taste in them. But then I put up an Instagram post the other day about noughties films, and apparently everyone else does too! Congratulations, all of us.

Twenty Twenty: a look ahead

Well, THIS has come around a little sooner than I anticipated.

Three things that have happened since I stopped shopping

There are three weeks left of my three month ban on buying new clothes, shoes and accessories. You can read about Slow Fashion Season and why I decided to do it here, and I will be doing a more comprehensive post about what I’ve learnt and how I move forward when it’s officially over.

Four nights in Vinales, Cuba | Travel Diary

With a few nights in Havana under our belts, we were more than ready to retreat to a more rural setting for the second part of our Cuba trip, and that setting was Vinales; a small, colourful town nestled in a lush green valley. While it’s pretty, and certainly charming, you don’t come to Vinales… Continue reading Four nights in Vinales, Cuba | Travel Diary
