Top 3 Berlin Breakfasts It’s almost a month since I returned from Berlin, but it feels like so much longer. For me, Berlin is a city that feels homely. I love roaming its familiar streets, in each of its iconic areas, and it’s no surprise that it’s one of my favourite place to write about! […] Read more…

THE POWER OF SAYING YES at MOTTRAM HALL

THE POWER OF SAYING YES at MOTTRAM HALL As a blogger, different offers and opportunities will occasionally land in my inbox- usually during the day when I’m hurrying between appointments. Being honest, I decline most event invitations (when I’m lucky enough to receive them) because they’re usually in London, with short notice or aren’t relevant to the fashion and lifestyle […] Read more…

LIFE LATELY :: WYCOLLER (FT. WHAT I THRIFTED #25 #26)

Well, haven’t things been a little quiet around here recently? My short hiatus wasn’t planned, nor intended, but very much needed. I haven’t intentionally been keeping things quiet, but I do have news to share- I have a new job! I’ve sidestepped into a different career, a different sector, but my passions of social media and […] Read more…

THE ACCIDENTAL THRIFT #7 :: THE HALL TABLE

  At the start of the year, you may remember that I banned myself from shopping on the high street and created a series called ‘The Accidental Thrift‘. Slowly, as the months have flown by, being thrifty has become a way of life, but not when it comes to interiors. I have Pinterest dreams of […] Read more…

GETTING HEALTHY :: IDEAS FOR WINTER?

Even though I no longer work full time hours in the classroom, I still find myself perceptible to the same illnesses and ailments as other teachers. It’s no surprise that being the week before half term, I’m ill. The timing couldn’t be better, I say sarcastically, typing these words clutching a packet of Kleenex and spluttering over the […] Read more…

WHAT THE PHO :: ANOTHER NEW BEGINNING

It doesn’t feel like two minutes since I was typing my last post about new beginnings. Since leaving teaching full time, I’ve enjoyed a glorious summer working in Manchester city centre in the field of social media. Now that this chapter has reached its natural end, it’s time for another new start… only this time, […] Read more…

WELCOME TO DISMALAND

  This post has taken days to escape my drafts, huge chunks of text have been deleted, rewritten, then reworded. Please note, these thoughts are just my opinions. I’m not intending to be an authority on Dismaland, I’m just writing from a lifestyle blogger’s point of view. Be warned, you’re in for a truly dismal […] Read more…
