Learning To Forgive Myself

It’s cold. I have the heating on, a pair of fluffy socks, I keep on making cups of tea but it’s still absolutely freezing. I can feel that we’re getting ever so deeper into the Winter months but really, do any of us feel ready? I mean, I’m usually bumbling around until mid January trying […]

Winter Warming Gin Cocktail

I don’t think I can contain my love of gin. GIN. GIN. GIN. GIN. GIN. So crisp, so refreshing, so botanical. Mmmmmm. Not gonna lie, I’m only mildly concerned with how quickly a 70cl bottle lasts us (a couple of weeks, pls tell me this is normal) but just when you think you’ve had all the […]

My Four Summer Skincare Heroes

My mum always used to tell me, even as a little girl, that you need to look after your face every. single. night. without fail. [otherwise big monstrous blackheads will take over your face but hey, making a point here]. And, I’m not gonna lie, there’s been periods in my life where I really haven’t […]

A Life Update

Oh hi there. I’m managing to write from my new office – MY. NEW. OFFICE. No more balancing laptops and iPads on my knee, no longer am I squashed into a box room attempting to edit pictures in the worst light ever and finally there’s some space for me to shoot photos properly. HURRAH. I can’t believe […]

This time of year is incredible. Suns out/ legs out/ sandals out/ mojito making kit OUT. And ’tis the season for gorgeous blouses to be gracing our instagram feeds and gets us thinking ‘sweet diggity, haven’t we seen enough gingham already this season?’.  No we haven’t my friends – we really, really haven’t. James and I decided to […]

Finding Inspiration Again

It’s hard to put into words, but in order for me to blog I kinda need a good idea about what I’m going to write about or where I’m going with the point I’m trying to make, and despite an awful lot of planning and hours of taking photographs and creating content, when life really throws you an unexpected curveball almost everything seems to fall out of balance.

Why It’s OK To Feel Lonely 

Sometimes I am so incredibly lonely all I can do is focus on one thing. I mean, sometimes I barely have the energy to get up from my blanket-burrito-slash-cave I’ve been sitting in for a couple of hours because all I can think of is ‘I’m so alone’ and ‘why does nobody ever message me’ and FFS even Netflix hasn’t noticed I’ve been watching How I Met Your Mother for about 6 hours now.

5 Pay Day Treats For October

Erm *checks calendar* how did the end of September come so soon? We only have one week to go until we all start talking about long coats, darker evenings and pumpkin spiced latte. No YOU go to Starbucks too much. I’ve been having a bit of a nightmare recently; I’ve fallen victim to the horrible […]

The Zara Haul That Made Me Cry With Happiness 

Anyone who knows me, or reads my blog, knows that I’m a hashtag Zara Girl.

Basically, the new Zara opened up in Bristols Cabot Circus aaages ago and as per usual I’m a bit late to the party; to be fair I’ve tried to do a proper proper shop, but I think James sees a) the amount of clothes (to you and I, retail heaven) and b) the amount of people queuing for the changing rooms and he’s like nah not today hun, got a headache, it’s too hot, there’s no man seat etc etc and the excuses go on.
