Musings and Snapshots

Snapshots of October

6th November 2015


Visiting Liberty and getting lost in the Christmas department (look!) :: My favourite London home :: Sugar-free strawberry mix Smits, 5p of every pack sold goes to Breast Cancer Care :: The lovely Kate and Lee of Old Made Shop at the Oxford InstaMeet :: ‘I wandered lonely as a cloud’ :: I’m turning into a pink door bore :: Attending a fabulous brush lettering workshop with Etsy and The Lovely Drawer :: Sharing my tips for taking care of succulents :: Pretty in pink


Sunlight and grey :: Learning to slow down with watercolours :: If in doubt, paint it turquoise :: Sharing a corner of my white bedroom and a few ways to recharge your body and mind :: Exploring theΒ Natural History Museum :: Easy like Sunday morning :: My friend’s Boston Terriers always wear their bowties when I visit :: ExploringΒ the Chanel exhibition with my mum :: Meeting an Oxford friend for tea and cake


An autumnal Oxford is as pretty as a picture :: A corner of my office for styling the seasons, also sharing a few ways to survive the darker months :: The 10 things I gained when I gave up my stuff :: Home sweet home :: Beautiful displays at Grand Designs Live :: Kat jumping for joy at the Oxford InstaMeet :: I have this thing with vintage cars :: They call me mellow yellow :: My October shot for A Year of Moments with Lobster & Swan


I have my niece to thank for finding this gorgeous street, it’s where Paddington was filmed :: Sitting with the greenery in one of the Botanic Garden Greenhouses :: A fun trip toΒ London Fashion Weekend :: A Betty’s inspired tea party :: Happy lilac and grey neighbours :: Attending the Amara Interior Blog Awards :: Bicycle colour love :: The gorgeously delightful Vanessa :: Another day, another Figaro


I always forget how lovely October is. The changes in colour are dreamy and there’s something quite cosy about pavements covered in leaves. Not to mention returning home for a hot chocolate after a chilly country walk.

If I had to describe my life right now I’d probably compare it to a box of frogs. I can finally say yes to things and start working on the projects I’ve always dreamed of. But I feel I’m jumping in lots of different directions and having too many toys to play with can sometimes be a bad thing. I’m sure things will calmΒ when the novelty wears off but for now I’m enjoying this terrific sense of freedom.

I hope November is treating you well and let’s grab a cuppa over on Instagram.
