October and her unpredictability….

October and her unpredictability will forever fascinate me. If October were a star-sign, she wouldn’t be a Libra or Scorpio; she’d be a Gemini – changeable, charismatic and curious. Her wrath envelops the early morning sky with a blanket of grey, casting a melancholic spell on the world. Her tears fall, splattering pavements, drip, drip, dropping … Continue reading

I felt completely content travelling home from work on Tuesday evening: the warmth of the sunshine against my skin, fresh loaves of cranberry & walnut bread, a pile of magazines and a chocolate Lindt bunny for him. Easter had finally begun – the break I was longing for, because it meant I’d get to spend … Continue reading

Life Lately

  Life is busy. Early mornings with the singing birds, Starbucks soya lattes, work, a rainy commute home, an evening watching the raindrops trickle down our chapel windows, and then the weekend arrives –  full of Krispy Kreme treats and a Sunday walk to say ‘hello’ to the horses. I haven’t got time to think … Continue reading

Sunday

This Sunday has consisted of: leather skirts, fringe, peach pancakes, blueberries, flowers and lots of green tea. I’ve been drinking far too many cups of coffee before work, so, this weekend I’ve gone herbal. Oh, and I’ve started taking Kalms. Has anybody else taken these? They’re incredible. Ironically, I feel exactly that. I can get … Continue reading

“Working 9-5, what a way to make a living…..”

I spent the majority of last weekend in changing rooms, trying on anything remotely ‘smart’ for my new internship. As my current wardrobe mainly consists of leather trousers, shorts, skirts and Ramones t-shirts, I was in desperate need of purchasing something slightly more sophisticated. I did, however, fall in love with a pair of navy … Continue reading

“Why is everyone struggling in New York? Why don’t we all just move here and start the revolution?” – Hannah Horvath

It’s beautiful outside – the kind of beauty that inspires you to take a sunbath, to sing with the birds, to chat to some stranger on the bus, to strut around the city listening to 80s classic rock annoyingly loud on your ipod, and to buy a ridiculously overpriced superfood juice from FUEL, so that … Continue reading

Dear 2013

Dear 2013, Thank you for making me realise that life is far too short to worry about meaningless things that aren’t important, that the cure for anxiety is simply thinking more positively and living in the present moment. I’m angry at you for making money issues the bane of my life, causing incredible amounts of … Continue reading

The Christmas Tree, Panettone, Gingerbread Candles & Roses (lots of roses)…

I’m sitting here with my 100th chocolate from the roses tin, admiring our pretty Christmas tree (full of penguins, robins, snowmen and a random squirrel), feeling all warm and festive. The husband had lots of school work to mark (the perks of being a teacher), so, it was my responsibility to turn our apartment into … Continue reading

Christmas Tree Memories

Our first Christmas tree in our first apartment – 2012 I’m currently surrounded by baubles, penguins, Santa Claus, beads, glitter, gingerbread houses, and I’ve just devoured half of a (very small) panettone. I’m feeling incredibly (full) festive, so, tomorrow evening, I’ll be decorating the tree and turning the apartment into Santa’s grotto. Decorating the tree … Continue reading
