love this place

girl-lying-on-coniston-jetty

The Lake District has gotta be my no.1 place for spontaneous days out!  Mummy and I decided we fancied a trip to the Lakes at around lunchtime, and soon enough the four of us were on the M6 with a flask of coffee and tuna sandwiches packed.  And all our camera stuff.  Because if this place of natural beauty doesn’t scream to be photographed, then nothing does.  We’re both a little snap-happy.  Perfect place for more camera practice, as I…

fox and the chicken

Ambiguous post title I know, but does anybody remember that puzzle? My parents used to ring us whenever they’d left me and my brother home alone together, just to check that the ‘fox hadn’t eaten the chicken’ as it became known.  I was supposedly the fox in this scenario, who couldn’t be trusted not to attack the chicken.  Totally wasn’t the case though!  I was talking to Joel for a while last week, and I noticed how much we’ve changed…

last minute halloween

About as last minute as it gets with this one!  I pretty much decided on this look whilst walking to the fancy dress shop this lunchtime.  Inspired by InTheFrow of course!  Her tutorial was really easy to follow and luckily I happen to have a goldy-orange animal print lycra leotard hanging around.  As you do.  (Dance show, not day to day don’t worry).  My brother Joel also needed a costume at the last minute, and in true ‘little brother’ style…

looking back, looking ahead

2013 has been a transitional year for me.  I feel like I’ve grown up a great deal, and have a better idea of what I really enjoy doing.  I started blogging properly, which is probably the most important change to me!  Since only August I’ve got to know so many new people online and feel like we’re virtual friends already, and coming up with new ideas sartorially and in my writing has been a really enjoyable challenge.  Everyone knows how…

day late christmas post

Hope everybody had a fabulous Christmas and is enjoying a chilled out Boxing Day! What do you think of my candy crush inspired card? Pretty good idea for my candy crush fanatic boyfriend, if I do say so myself!  I included jellies and stripies and everything, just to be accurate 😉 Usually my little brother is pretty reluctant to get in front of the camera, but with the excuse that `its Christmas` I managed to persuade him. People say we…

cacti and cookies

Quick blog post before bedtime, can’t stay up late or santa might not come! Christmassyness is in full flow in my house now: all family together by the tree with a Yule Log waiting for dessert! Anyway, I thought I should probably share the gifts I’ve made before Christmas day, nevermind how last minute! Knitted cacti are probably one of the most random of gifts I’ve ever made!  A few weeks ago my former art teacher, who has since left…

4 more sleeps

Christmas holidays finally; I think you can tell my enthusiasm for this fact above!  Today was the day for delivering cards, arranging the very last of the decorations and finishing up a knitted gift I’d been asked to make.  Such days definitely do not call for fashion-y outfits, so my ‘dad’s jumper, ancient cardigan and scrunched socks’ look will have to do.  Can’t have pretty outfits all the time 😉  Although I do like my new Primark footless tights… they’re…
