PALMS, BOOKS AND LONDON FASHION WEEK

February was beautifully balanced. There was enough to keep me busy with time for slower pursuits. I’ve been feeling quite reflective, taking a step back to think and trying not to force my creativity. Sometimes it’s good to allow time to plan, learn and explore, without the pressure of needing to translate it.

There have been a lot of books. I rarely read fiction so I’ve been learning about mindfulness, personal development and organisation, Buddhism and the ideas surrounding the law of attraction. I have no idea where this is heading, but I’m enjoying the journey. Probably a mid-life path walked by many before me!

As far as blogging activity goes, I was invited to attend the super glamorous Julien Macdonald show at London Fashion Week with Graham and Brown. Julien designs a range of gorgeous wallpapers for Graham and Brown including the famous Honolulu Palm print – all the heart eyes! I also attended the Blogosphere tea party where I grazed on cupcakes and caught up with friends.

I hope you had a gorgeous month and March is as beautiful as the Palm House at the Oxford Botanic Garden. Always and forever my happy place!

    I love you snapshot posts, they’re always so pleasing to the eye – especially when there’s a sneak of a Chanel too!

    ‘Grazing on cupcakes’ made me giggle, such a blogger pastime but I’m sorry to have missed it. Can’t wait for all the blossom photos to hit my IG feed soon, especially yours! xx
