HOW TO DEAL WITH AN INTROVERT

Sometimes I don’t feel like I should post because I don’t have beautiful images to share. But I realise how silly that sounds, after all, this is my blog and a few years ago I would have happily just shared my thoughts. So today I will give you a picture of some cows and some […]

WORDS #7

One of my new year’s resolutions for 2015 is to be more tolerant of others. To not snap, to stop and think before I react. Yes, sometimes people just need to be told. But occasionally your reaction can be part of the problem, so just take a moment to consider whether your response is really […]

WORDS #5

I’ve written before about friendships and how letting go of the past can really hurt. This week I was talking to a very good girlfriend of mine about a friendship that has turned sour and is now just hurting. It got me thinking about life today and how social media can have a toxic effect […]

IN RUINS

Ever since stumbling across St Mary’s Church on Pinterest, I have been eager to go on a little adventure to find it. There’s something about ruins and abandoned buildings that fascinates me. They offer a window into history that no restoration project can. I love to picture the movements of the people who frequented these […]

RECIPE | LEMON MERINGUE BAKED ALASKA WITH LEMON SAUCE

AKA. Great British Bake Off challenge number 3! For those not living in the UK, you wouldn’t believe the furore that Great British Bake Off caused the week they attempted Baked Alaska. A bit of ‘you’ve got your own freezer’ drama, meant melted ice cream and ultimately one Baked Alaska thrown in a bin mid […]

LOVE STATIONERY

After visiting Charlotte at the weekend and sleeping in her wonderful studio space, I am totally inspired and excited to move back into mine. My course starts in just a few weeks, and as many of the lovely ladies on Instagram have said, it’s the perfect excuse to buy lots of pretty stationery. First on […]
