Favourite Summer Outfits

I’m not much of a fashion blogger, but I would be lying if I said I’d never thought about including a fashion tab at the top of my blog. Something about fashion posts have always made me feel materialistic and shallow, but the more I think about it, the more I think we can outwardly…

Decorating on a Budget

I love making a space my own. I entered a competition the other day where I had to answer a question. The question was something like ‘Tell us what makes your home a home’. In an enthusiastic attempt to win a pretty homewares and decorating book, I wrote this: I never truly understood what home…

Minimalism?

I found myself deep in a YouTube rabbit hole recently. The kind where you’re watching a video and see something interesting pop up in the side bar… so you click it, and then click another link, and another, until you’re binge watching videos on a topic that didn’t exist in your world until three hours earlier.

Short Hair?

I’m not the kind of person who usually does things ‘on a whim’. I like to ponder decisions and make pro/con lists… completely Gilmore-Girls-Rory style.
