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

An everyday hair styling routine for loose, lived in curls

...aka how I try to give the illusion of having an Instagram-worthy mane on the regs despite actually having pretty rubbish hair. I’m writing this because a couple of people requested it over on Instagram – I know, I know, I almost don’t believe it either, considering I spend alternate days looking like Hagrid (wild,… Continue reading An everyday hair styling routine for loose, lived in curls

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

Three unfortunate clothes shopping habits I’m trying to bin

The way that the topic for this blog post came into my head is kind of embarrassing, but let's roll with it. Today I spent probably two of my fully dressed hours pulling my culottes out of my arse (how’s that for TMI?), where they seemed determined to reside for the majority of the day.… Continue reading Three unfortunate clothes shopping habits I’m trying to bin

I’m trying to appreciate little things more so here’s a handful of stuff I’m going to stop and enjoy this spring

Happy April one and all. I don’t know how the fourth month of 2018 managed to arrive already, but here we are, 3 months and a horrible number of centimetres of rain down. It’s been a pretty good year so far, but when I think back, I’m surprised to find that I don’t actually remember… Continue reading I’m trying to appreciate little things more so here’s a handful of stuff I’m going to stop and enjoy this spring
