Blogmas Day 11: A family trip to Lewes

This weekend, Oli and I went to Lewes with my parents for a Christmassy, family day. If you haven’t been to Lewes before than I strongly recommend that you do. It’s a cute little place, full of Antique shops, amazing coffee shops, a Castle, bookish stores a plenty and cobbled stones. It’s quaint and pretty […]

Blogmas Day 6: Walking in a winter wonderland…

There’s frost outside, on the ground. And the air is nipping at my nose. Biting at it actually. My hands and lips are chapped. Big time. I should really remember to moisture at night. But I couldn’t be happier. I love summer don’t get me wrong but I love wrapping up warm too, donning my […]

Autumn days when the grass is jewelled…

I love Autumn and every year, when this season pulls up outside, I’m reminded of how incredibly beautiful it is. All those fallen, auburn leaves and the frost on the grass in the morning. Scarves and hats and wellington boots. Fireworks and sparklers and cosy nights in watching The Apprentice and I’m a Celebrity. Breath, […]

Dear Weekend: Crying over spilt coffee, a day at the farm, a first birthday, a roaring fire and a sunday roast.

We started the day with a fried breakfast. And mugs of tea. And our feet up on the coffee table as we watched the first episode of this seasons The Apprentice. There are two candidates called Oliver and Rebecca this year, so the two of us have decided to back our namesakes and whoever ends […]

Seasons come and seasons go

My sunglasses are firmly back in my handbag, the evenings are lighter and there are daffodils and tulips everywhere I turn. This can only mean one thing…SPRING IS FINALLY HERE! And boy, am I happy to see her. (She’s a female season on account of her floral beauty and the fact that the epitome of spring […]

Enjoying the little things

Wednesday is my favourite week day, with the exception of Friday. And that’s because my favourite person comes to see me after work. And we spend the afternoon and the evening together, laughing and being silly. Lately we’ve taken to going for runs together, training for a 10km that we are still to enter. I […]

December: An overview of my very favourite of all the months

I’ve done a lot of festive things this December to get me in the mood for Christmas. So I thought I’d write a little post about my favourite events that occurred in this wonderful, twelfth month. The fifth of December: I headed into London to meet my old university housemates for a Prosecco brunch. I lived […]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Autumn.

I love Autumn. Always have, always will. Hands down, it is my very favourite of all the seasons. I mainly enjoy this season because I am reunited with scarves, oversized, granddad jumpers and all things woollen. Wool is my very favourite of materials. *Provided it’s the soft, as opposed to itchy kind* I love layering […]

Notes on my third and final One Direction concert

On Saturday I rocked up to the O2 to hear the dulcet tones of One Direction. Outfit wise, I eventually opted for my favourite cropped lilac jumper paired with an accessorize statement necklace, along with dark blue high-waisted jeans and my cream lace converse. I didn’t fancy lugging a coat around with me for the whole […]
