Wild and windy weekends

You have no idea how happy this cold weather has made me. Watching it drop below 20 has been the highlight of the week for me as I am a sucker for a hot cup of coco, a heated blanket and a snuggle with my cats and Jon on the sofa! Autumn is well and truly here, I’ve…

Apple spice & all things Hygge

Styling your house depending on the season might sound a little crazy, but it’s genuinely a thing! Take Christmas for example, a season everyone gets on board with, or at least, know someone who does! We decorate our homes with fairy lights, tinsel, ivy, trees and all sorts of wintry wonders! So why should the…

Once upon a time…

Before computers, phones, TV and even radio all we had to entertain ourselves with stories were books. Those magical little things that remain shut on a shelf just waiting to be opened and transport us to another realm, time or life. Books have gone through a period of transformation over the last 100 or so…

Opera In The Park

I never used to like Opera. I found it loud, difficult to listen too and screechy. That was until I heard it live. A coupe of summers ago I worked for Opera Holland Park as something else to do in the evenings and meet some new people in London. After a few performances I realised…

Another Day Another Year

I turned 27 last Tuesday and I woke up feeling different. Every year on my birthday I get are asked the same thing ‘do you feel different today’ and every year I give the same answer ‘not much different to yesterday…’. Weirdly, however,  this year was different and I woke up feeling like I had well and truly…

Dancing with Dinosaurs

Oxford is the city of past floating through the new. To visit is to step into the past whilst living in the present…  With some of the countries most incredible museums strewn across the city of Oxford it seems almost alien to me that you wouldn’t want to add Oxford to your list of places…

Peering Through The Peonies

Flowers, freshly cut and placed in a vase are just the thing to make your home sing with happiness! There are thousands of personalities in our world and we all have different ideas when it comes to interior design, aesthetics and what does and doesn’t look right in our homes. Some of us might opt…

Nature’s gym

Lots of us nowadays have battled with weight issues, be this too thin, too thick or not toned enough for our own insecurities to manage. Because of this I wanted to talk about my own experiences to help you girls (and guys) manage your body and lifestyle.  It’s no secret that I am a self…

The day I found Olivia May…

Roaming the streets of Oxford back as a student was the day I walked into Olivia May – not your typical boutique store, but one where princesses can become queens… Having lived in West London for the last few years, surrounded by bright lights, booming stereos and high end shops with the same old clothes…

Let your life twinkle!

Twinkly fairy lights are commonly used at Christmas time to decorate our towns, gardens, homes, trees. They illuminate the glittering snow and create a magical atmosphere when surrounded by the sparkle of ice. You’re probably wondering what I am doing blogging about fairy lights at the end of June, they’re a Christmas thing right? Well…
