Lily Diaries April | Lake swims, playing tourist in my home county & the biggest red velvet cake ever

I feel like it’s been an absolute age since my last proper ‘catch up’ on here, so I’m gonna change that whilst I eat my chicken noodle soup.  Writing is better with food, right?  Here goes the return of the Lily diaries.  I do believe the last one was in September.  Eesh.  I realised that since I take my camera and/or phone pretty much everywhere I have quite a few photos that are yet to grace the blog, so here you…

the good mood days | feeling inspired

One observation on life without routine is that my mood is influenced more easily than it used to be.  Smaller things seem to be able to put a big ol’ grin on my face, or give me the ‘mehhhh’ feels.  I think it’s a symptom of spending more time in my own company.  Hopefully I’m not just being a hormonal bitch. Whilst it’s annoying that small things can but a big dampener on my mood atm, it’s bloody brilliant when…

lily diaries | what I got up to in August

Hola from Barcelona!  Whilst packing / getting organised / attempting to sort my life out before this mini trip, I was about to wipe my SD card to make space and found a whole load of August pics that were yet to grace le blog.  So in my absence, here they all are in an epic installment of the Lily Diaries. That makes me sound like I take myself wayyy to seriously. I don’t, promise.  It’s my camera roll, basically….

lily diaries | what I got up to in July

Blogger event at The Alchemist Manchester. Cocktails

Oh hi there July, you’re slipping by pretty quickly aren’t you?  You’ve been a funny one, a transition month of sorts, but filled with lots of bits and bobs to catch up on before we set off for France this fine Sunday morning.  I’ve a sneaky suspicion the drive won’t seem to *quite* slip by so quickly.  So impatient and excited to get there.  I’m leaving Budapest out of this roundup because I’m fairly sure I’ve professed my love for…

lily diaries | what I got up to in June

Silhoetted leaves against sky at dusk

I start many a post with ‘it’s been AGES since I did this!!!‘ but yeah, it’s been bloody ages since my last proper diary post.  I mean, you must all be on the edge of your seats desperate to see what’s been occurring in the life of Lily Kate France, mustn’t you?  Don’t answer that.  So, today I present ‘June Snippets’, or in other words, photos I forgot existed.  Just as a little catchup, y’know. 🙂 — Afternoon tea is…

twenty eight | where will I be 10 years from now?

Hello from Majorca!  Having a fabulous time, but more on that later.  I’m using my new passport for the first time this weekend, and safe to say I had a bit of a shock when I saw the expiration date on it.  10 years from now, duhhh.  I’ll still be carrying that pic around when I’m TWENTY EIGHT.  What the???  Am I adult enough now that 10 years from now I’ll be the same person?  The photo isn’t even that…

spring break and NOT making plans

So it’s Sunday morning and so far I’ve been to a party on Friday night… drank my wine a *little* too quickly… paid the price for it on Saturday morning… had a fresh air day out in Cumbria (fab hangover cure)… had a cute Saturday night and am now cracking open the laptop and diary but NOT making a million plans.  Which is odd for me; I’m usually a go-go-go kind of person.  Whilst I’m an A* procrastinator (isn’t cleaning…
