Autumn Is Coming

Beret~Vintage/ Blouse~Zara/ Skirt~H&M/ Necklace~C/O Good Looking Objects

Hello my sweets and a very warm welcome to September....well not so warm if you live in England, but more on that later.

September has always been the month I have enjoyed the most, May and March come pretty close, but this month always seems to top them all. I love the change in season, how the trees turn into wonderful autumnal shades, beautiful root vegetables come into season and there is still enough warmth in the air to hang your washing out. Unfortunately, so far this month the weather has been pretty awful here, very windy and rainy, but hey ho- you've just got to make the most of the sunny patches.

My eyes had been on this Zara blouse for a pretty long time, I kept seeing it crop up on Instagram and I even bypassed it in store a couple of times, uming and ahhing over it and deciding whether to wait until pay day or not. Luckily enough, by the time I got my mitts on it, it was already in the sale and I couldn't have been more chuffed.
I also got a very exciting new piece of jewelry to add to my collection this month, a very sweet gift from one of my new favourite brands Good Looking Objects. This little bronze hand has been the cherry on top of my outfits recently and I love how it goes with every single thing I pop on. Its witchy vibes are also a huge plus for me.

I am off to Bulgaria on Saturday, I am so so excited to go somewhere completely new and different. A week to relax in the sunshine like a reptile and climb some mountains. I am sure I will have a whole album of pictures to show you on my return.

Lots of love always

Pagan Poetry

Hello loves,

Every so often these days I find myself dreaming of a much more simple lifestyle. One in which looking at my phone as soon as I open my eyes is much less important than looking out of the window and sniffing the air, as it switches from summer to the beginning scents of autumn.
A couple of weeks ago when my mother and I took these pictures in a wheat field, with the wind blowing in our hair and the view of the moors against the mustard shades of the crops, it made me remember just how important little moments like those are,amongst the hustle and bustle of the lives we lead.
This cotton dress has never made me feel more free, I felt like a Pagan bride with my bunch of hand-picked flowers and bare feet. If I ever was to get married, it would definitely be outdoors.

My best friend and I are trying to book a holiday for September, somewhere to celebrate our 23rd year of friendship. Where we can drink wine, sit in the warmth and reminisce over the best memories we have shared and all the new ones that are to follow. If you have any ideas or experiences around Europe that you would like to share, I would love to hear.

Lots of love always

Crimson & Hydrangeas

A big warm welcome to August, with a big basket of hydrangeas and a very, very greasy fringe (my apologies). This time of year my hair just seems to love to stick to my face.

Another few weeks have passed and it seems that life is continuing on the up and up. The fields are growing crops quicker by the day and despite the on and off rain, the vibe around seems positive and bright.

I picked up this red number in New Look of all places, not my usual stop-off point when I'm having a good old shop, but I thought I would have a browse- Oh, boy am I glad I did.
It was on an ever so warm day and I was desperately, clanging through the rails looking for something less clammy and heavy to wear than the leather jacket and jeans I was donning on that day. This crimson treat caught my eye and low and behold it was also in the sale, a very sweet treat. It has all the feels of a vintage piece, but with as couple more buttons and a cheeky slit up the side. Paired with my favourite beret, I went off to pick some wild flowers with my mum.

I need to actually start doing more with all of the dried flowers I have poking out of every crevice in my room.If anyone has any suggestions or DIY ideas then I would love to hear them.

Just a quick post today, as I am about to catch up with the new series of Game Of Thrones- yay!

I have an updated room tour post/ video in the pipeline, so hopefully that will be up soon :)

Lots of love always

Steam Train Station Of Blooms

Top~Zara/ Culottes~Zara/ Shoes~Primark/ Bag~ Market

Hello my dears and welcome to mid-summer,

July is a special month, just over half-way through the year and questioning how much we have achieved, what we hope to gain and often opportunities we wish we had grabbed in the moment. Overall, it is a month full of thought and more often than not, dabbles of sunshine and blue skies.

Drying flowers has continued to be one of my biggest enjoyments, watching them initially give life into my room in a vase and then over time watching them crisp, keep their colour and sit in amongst their petal friends in various wicker baskets around my room. Wow, that was a sentence you needed to take a big breath before saying. I know a great little place that does fresh bunches that won't burn a hole in your pockets and it has become a Sunday tradition to travel there and pick up a couple of varieties on my weekends off.

Sometimes I feel like I am living in a time warp, the steam train station in the pictures above is quite literally like walking out of a book you would read growing up in the 50's. Big, bold vintage signs cover the brick walls and I have never seen a station so filled with colourful flowers and character. You can sit on one of the vintage benches, watch the stream and listen out for the smoke puffing out of the chimney as the train approaches the corner.

Life is giving me lemons at the moment, I can feel the citrus on my skin and am embracing all that it has to offer me whilst I can. Freckles are appearing from nowhere all over my limbs and I feel very lucky to have had a little burst of brightness in my life recently. Long may the positivity last, for everyone.

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer and surrounded by wonderful people and nature.

Lots of love always
