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…

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…

Cuddly kitties!

Yes, the rumours are true we adopted two Birman Blue! These cute fluff balls came from Oxfordshire’s Cats Protection centre, run by volunteers who rescue the cats from all over the county – and I cannot being to express how incredible the centre is, the time, effort and money put into rescuing cats from all…

Thinking ahead

It’s so healthy to both live in the here and now but also be aware of the future and plan head. Today I’ve been adding to my ever growing rows of crocheting on my blanket. It’s going to be soft natural colours made with Organic Manx Wool given to me by my mum. Crocheting for…

Non-stop Coffee Shop

I’m one of those people that loves coffee shops and not coffee. I’m much more a juicer / chai and tea drinker, I just can’t get my head around that bitter taste or living with coffee breath (queue flashbacks to coffee breath driving instructor). I also don’t drink milk, so to have coffee black or…
