A High Street Shopping Experiment | Where The Nice People Are Round 2

Yonks ago, back in what feels like the blogging dark ages, I wrote a blog post about where the nicest shopping experiences were to be had.  Just as a little experiment to show appreciation for the friendly people who make your day that bit nicer.  And yesterday I decided 3 years down the line to do High Street Experiment Round II, with different shops, and see where had the friendliest staff and who made for the nicest experience as a…

Our Changing Tastes in Blogging | What Do We Actually Want to Read and Write Anymore?

Good morning/evening/whenever the hell this goes up.  I’m writing this in the bath, on a Tuesday morning, jotting notes in a new notebook that I seriously hope I don’t now drop in the water.  It almost seems more risky than holding my phone.  I wonder how many phones have been casualties of trying to take a cute bath snap and slipping because your bath bomb made the bottom all slidey? I’m aiming to spend less time aimlessly scrolling (at what…

the best fit jeans | no gape frayed ‘chewed’ denim

I have very bizarre arguments with myself over clothes.  The deals I make (with myself) are seriously ridiculous.  ‘If I’ve seen them on 3 separate occasions and still want them, they can be mine’ – yep, total justification Lily.  Logic on point.  I’d had a sly eye on both these jeans and shoes for a wee while, yesterday was the third time I’d spotted them both, and here we are. In my defence, finding a pair of jeans that fit…

Haven’t had a dressy outfit post in a while have we?  I thought one was due, what with it nearly being December and all that.  Because December = Christmas = excuse to dress-up ‘dressy’ or dress-down slobby at every opportunity.  This one’s hardly your typical sequined sparkly festive getup, but I kinda like that!  And yes, I will even wear a poloneck to a party.  Obsession gone a bit too far.  When everyone else is absolutely freezing their asses off…

very well ventilated

Saw it on Pinterest, mum agreed to make it, 2 weeks (give or take) later and I’ve a new cropped top to add to my collection!  If only everything on Pinterest would materialise that way eh?  The list would be endless.  Anyway, this one’s from this pattern by the Purl Bee, knit in Rowan Panama cotton.  Kinda slubby and drapey, which I like.  I did the fiddly awkward bits joining the whole thing together and mama knit the majority of…

was nice while it lasted

Stripes, shocker!  Can’t seem to get enough of them, navy and white especially.  I’ll stop being quite so predictable soon, promise.  Did warn you.  Cute little flippy skirt though, no?  Don’t know what I ever wore before this denim jacket either. I’ve worn it practically every day in the 2 weeks I’ve had it.  Must add that we shot these photos last weekend too – no way I’d be braving it in today’s weather!  Shouldn’t really be surprised that it’s…

lazy outfits & busy weeks

Last few shots taken before we moved house, just a super comfy outfit from last weekend!  We’ve had a mega busy week as you’d expect and were without internet for a couple of days.  Feels like I’ve been gone forever!  I’d stupidly imagined I’d have all my stuff unpacked in a couple of hours, next joke haha.  The majority of my day off college was spent lugging cardboard boxes and shifting furniture with my dad; a move wouldn’t be complete…
