Time to start not-so-wasting time

One of my biggest fears, and in many ways biggest obsessions, is wasting time. Wasting anything in general actually doesn’t sit well with me at all – it’s what has me eating absolutely everything on my plate because err you what mate I am not putting good food in the bin – but precious minutes… Continue reading Time to start not-so-wasting time

A red puffer jacket (and nothing more profound)

I’m doing that thing again – the thing where I convince myself that every outfit post has to have a deep and meaningful element, or some kind of insightful purpose, or just a ‘point’ beyond what I’m wearing. Beyond the fact that they probably don’t have to have those things, this seems a little rich,… Continue reading A red puffer jacket (and nothing more profound)

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

We went pumpkin picking | White House Farm, Norwich

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

Learning to brush off life’s little irritations

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

Making my wardrobe work harder: the trench coat

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
