7 Things I’m Loving Right Now

Life, PHOTO DIARY
June 9 2016

1. Waking up at 5 am. I’ve become such an early bird (in every sense of the phrase, and by that I mean I’m dozing off by 9pm…NO MATTER where I am! In the car, on the couch, in the Club! Lol! My friends have dubbed me Sleepy, as in the Dwarf from Snow White, and to be honest with you, I don’t mind!). I get to bed early and I’m up early! And just like the French say… “La vie appartient à ceux qui se lèvent tôt.” which in English means “Life belongs to those who rise early!” So… Read More »

Let’s catchup

Life, PHOTO DIARY
June 10 2015

I’ve been doing a lot more posting of pictures on my instagram, you know sometimes when you just want instant pictures to do the talking. I missed the little photo diary compilations of my favourite insta-posts, so here’s one today. I’m hoping to return to that point where sharing doesn’t feel so alien. One of the few cons of being the “Quiet” type*, you can get to a point where you feel trapped behind your silence, you forget what it’s like to be openly expressive and care free, not just with your opinions, but your creativity too. I want all that… Read More »

Insta-Outfits and other things…

Life, PHOTO DIARY
January 28 2014

I’m sat here editing some footage for my YouTube Channel, and I thought, hey I need to check in with you guys! How are you all? So, where do I even begin? It’s been a whirlwind of ups and downs this January (January Blues?). I’m currently riding the up wave! So yay! Lol!I’m working on some amazing content for my channel (and blog), been in and out of meetings and studios since mid-week last week and all I can say is I’m super excited to share some amazingness with you guys very soon. But, the start of the year wasn’t… Read More »

Life, Thoughts
December 20 2013

“We are afraid to change because we think that, after so much effort and sacrifice, we know our present world. And even though that world might not be the best of worlds, and even though we may not be entirely satisfied with it, at least it won’t give us any nasty surprises…” ~ Quote by Paulo Coehlo Change can be scary, but I’ve come to believe that change, when the time is right, is good. I’ve been pondering about rebranding my blog for the longest time, and I’ve finally began to take the steps towards it (Leading on from my… Read More »

My Room ❤

INTERIOR, Life
November 14 2013

Hello my loves! So last night I uploaded a Room Tour Video, and I thought to blog about it too! I’m also practising some new photo techniques I’ve recently learnt, and I’m thinking of doing a post to share my equipment and a few tips on blog photography soon! Super excited to finally share with you my little bubble, that I’m so in love with! I spend a lot of time in here, working, blogging, filming, sleeping etc (you get the idea! lol!), so it’s only natural that I inject every bit of my personality and style into it! You… Read More »

Summer Afternoon, Photo diary.

Life, PHOTO DIARY
August 1 2011

A beautiful summer’s afternoon, with a cloudless sky and the sun shining as bright as ever, spent with amazing people.. My sister Kezia, my friend Titi and I spent the afternoon at Hyde Park yesterday, just soaking up the sun and having a jolly good time. Titi brought along her awesome home made cocktail and we enjoyed it with snacks, while jamming to Kezia’s impressive music playlist. Each song brought with it memories and we talked for ages about them. It was lovely. Hope you had a good weekend too! xo What I’m Wearing Top : H&M Skirt : Topshop… Read More »

Our Room.

Life
April 22 2011

I never thought having my sister as a roomy would ever be fun. We’re so different in lots of ways, and growing up in that little space was a bit crazy at times. I’m a neat freak, and Kezia is, well, the opposite.  She’s more laid back and care free about stuff, while i’m very meticulous. These little differences were often the reason we’d get into squabbles and the like, and we would both wish for our dear God to give us separate rooms, were we could do as we liked with our own space! It wasn’t until after I… Read More »

How about we grab a coffee and go Vintage Shopping?

Life, PHOTO DIARY, SHOPPING
March 13 2011

Yesterday Hannah and I met up in town to grab some starbucks and do a little bit of shopping. She’s also a blogger, and she studies here in Notts too. We had been talking for ages about meeting up, and we finally did! She’s such a sweetheart! We visited Wilder, a lovely Vintage Store (where most of these photos were taken), and there were so many nice things! I really had to keep myself from spending! Lol!  I tried. I really tried. Until I got to H&M. I just couldn’t let these amazing pieces go un-purchased (last three photos)… Pink Body… Read More »

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

Life
December 25 2010

Nathaniel is photographed here, writing his Christmas cards. As some of you would have gathered from my tweets earlier in the week, Nathaniel wasn’t feeling very well, he was suffering from the Flu but now he’s fully recovered from it…the only problem is, it’s gone round our house and everyone’s feeling poorly! Womp, womp!  I feel a tad bit better today, and I’m just praying we’ll be good for the weekend!  Hopefully you all enjoy it, eat loads of food and get loads of prezzies! I wish you all a Merry Christmas! Lots of love! ..xo **PS I’m currently working… Read More »

Early this morning I received a lovely e-mail from Modé Chronicles, an artist and follower of my blog. She had painted me. I was soo excited so I clicked through to her website to find this… Words cannot express how touched I am *tear*! Thank you. She is incredibly talented! Make sure to check out her website HERE, where she posts lots of her amazing art. ..xo
