TWO SCENTS

I often walk through the Selfridges beauty/perfume hall on the way home from work which is, most of the time, a pretty bad idea. It’s a good job they don’t sell any Byredo in the Birmingham store as I am such a sucker for their scents (not to mention their great design and clever magnetic

PHOTO OPS

I’m finally back on the blog – I hope you all haven’t forgotten about me! I can’t quite believe it’s been a month since my last post and the longest break I’ve ever had from blogging. It’s been a good break but I’ve really missed blogging so I’m keen to get back into it, starting

I SOLEMNLY SWEAR THAT I AM UP TO NO GOOD

EBB AND FLOW

It’s June! How fast has this year gone? I can’t believe we’re 6 months into 2016 already. I miss the days as kids when days, weeks and months used to pass by at a snail’s pace. It’s a reminder to make sure that you’re really enjoying life to the max and it’s definitely appropriate to

RHOSSILI BAY CLIFFS

I have holidays on the mind at the moment but let’s rewind to a quick weekend visit to some friends in Swansea. It really felt like a mini holiday as it was chilled, fun and just…easy! Maybe it was the fact that there wasn’t any pressure to go out drinking all night (I’m not a big

CANDY FLOSS TREES

Everybody loves cherry blossoms and ask any blogger and they’d find it hard to resist taking snaps of these fluffy powder pink blossoms. I’m going to romanticise it all and say I love them towards the end too when the pink petals are caught in the wind, it’s just the prettiest moment and definitely stemmed
