Gosh, I’m out of breath now. May was a busy month and I enjoyed relaxing at The White Company garden party, getting creative with Conran Paint, viewing my winter wardrobe at the Boden press day, dancing like a teenager to Primal Scream at Common People and eating my way through a delicious Hello Kitty afternoon tea. There has been lots to see and be inspired by.
In other news, I’m thrilled to be leading one of the photowalks at Blogtacular this month, so expect me to be Instagramming, Tweeting and Snapchatting along the way. I hope you had a lovely May and June is as sparkly as a giant disco ball. For more of my onward journey, I’ll see you over on Instagram.
And finally, the winner of the £100 Dotcomgiftshop voucher is Karl Bird – congratulations!
