Cute And Quirky Autumn Outfit And Accessories Wish List

If you ask me, Autumn is the best time of year for fashion. I love all the shiny brown Chelsea boots, cute plaid patterns in shades of rust, the chunky knits and cosy sweatshirts. It’s definitely a lot easier for me to pick colours, patterns and designs I really love during the colder months. As soon as it gets warm again I start to despair!

Farewell, Lush Kitchen And A Final Order

I adore the Lush Kitchen and everything about it; excitedly waiting for the menu to roll around each and every Friday at 3pm, anxiously waiting to snag a long-awaited exclusive when the Kitchen opens at 8am, all those magical parcels in the post that follow…

So it will come as no surprise that I was, to put it mildly, really upset when the Kitchen announced its closure quite suddenly a couple of weeks back.

Decorating Our House Day 2: Mini Vlog

Hi guys,

it’s Monday 16th and I can hardly believe we are half-way through Blogtober! Today I am sharing another mini vlog to show you what we got up to on day two of decorating. This will be the last mini vlog for awhile – at least until we are all moved and settled!

 

Decorating Our New House; A Mini Vlog

Hi guys,

Today I thought I’d share another mini vlog. This one shows how we have started to decorate our home plus our plans for future decoration. My weekend has been filled with moving/decorating etc so it only seemed appropriate to be blogging about it. I will probably upload a couple more of these mini updates as we continue to decorate and move more bits and pieces in to the house. Hopefully you won’t find these too boring but please let me know either way! Also a huge thank you to Gareth’s parents who have been simply amazing and have really helped us with everything!

 

 

Home Tour; A Very Mini Vlog!

Hi guys,

today I thought I’d share a super short yet sweet vlog of our new home. This tour lasts approximately three minutes and is intended to show you around ahead of our big move which is happening next week (exciting!) I will be following this up with more mini vlogs throughout the whole moving process to keep you update with where we are at. I did think about saving all the footage up to make one big (and proper) vlog but then I thought...nah. I know it sounds cheeky but multiple small vlogs might just be the thing to help me keep on track with Blogtober! I haven’t uploaded this to my Youtube channel so you will find it exclusively here.

Please let me know if you enjoyed this post as it will help me with future vlogs and Blogtober posts!

Let’s begin…

Moving House: A Homeware Haul

If you read my Moving House And New Beginnings  post, you will know that Gareth and I are moving in just a couple of weeks time. Ever since we put an offer in on the house we have been busy squirrelling away bits and pieces for our new home.

As we have been living together for two years we already have lots of stuff so don’t really need any of the basics. White goods are built in to our property also so there’s no need to splash out on any overly expensive purchases. But as this is our first house and we want to do things properly, we have decided upon some themes for each room and have been buying decorative pieces accordingly.

 

I thought I would share a few of the smaller bits we have collected so far and our “vision” for the house. I can’t wait to get in and make it ours!

Blogtober Updates And Tips For Those Taking Part

It’s Monday the 9th of October which can only mean one thing; it has been a little over one week since Blogtober started!  For those of you who completely missed what this challenge is all about, please feel free to read my post all about it over here.

So, nine days have gone by and that means I have at this point in time written nine blog posts. It may seem like a small milestone to some, and perhaps it is in the greater scheme of things. But blogging every day of this week has been seriously tough and there’s no doubt in my mind that it will only get tougher.

Moving House And New Beginnings

In my October Bucket List post I mentioned that Gareth and I are getting ready to move in to our very first house together. Finally, after weeks of uncertainty we have exchanged contracts and have a move in date. As of Friday 13th October, the house will belong to us.

As this is such a huge and important step in our lives I thought now would be a good time to reflect on everything that’s going on. (more…)

Autumn Appreciation Post

Piles of golden, rust and burgundy leaves gently gather on the pavement, lining the street with colour as they fall from the trees.

Sunlight filters through branches laden with chestnuts, acorns and conkers and dances in ripples across the floor, illuminating the fallen leaves like sparks of fire. The air is cold and crisp.

It is October and Autumn is in full swing.

Mushroom Foraging In Autumn

I am an inquisitive person by nature; I am in complete and utter love with the idea of adventure. As a result of this, I am someone who spends a great deal of time exploring places just for the simple pleasure of discovering something.

In my spare time you will often find me outdoors, in a country park, nature reserve or woodlands. As photography is one of my main hobbies, I love to combine my passion for adventure and nature and take lots of photographs of all the weird and wonderful flora and fauna I happen to stumble across on my forays in to the wild.

October Bucket List

Now Autumn is in full swing I thought it would be a good time to look at all of my goals and aspirations for the month ahead. October is usually a busy month for me, filled with days out and fun events, but this particular October is looking set to be my busiest yet. Here’s my bucket list for the upcoming weeks:
