29.04.2020- What I Wore Today #412

Although my wardrobe at the moment is very much erring towards the comfortable side of things (and whose isn't?), looking back through my archive of posts is bringing me lots of happiness at the moment. It's hard to predict when things will go back to normal, or when we'll start adjust…

27.04.2020- Lockdown Life: Calming Comforts

Although lockdown life is a state of play which none of us would have chosen, there's no doubt that it's very quickly changed the look of the everyday  for a lot of people. Whether you're working from home, keeping your community going or on furlough (as I am), there's a lot about l…

24.04.2020- Adventures in Baking: Fruit Pavlova

It will probably be no surprise that over the last month or so, my baking game has well and truly amped up! I've got a bit of a backlog of bakes to share, but for now here's a look at my most recent from last weekend- a fruit pavlova which I adapted from this recipe on BBC Good Food.

22.04.2020- John Lewis & Partners + Mother of Pearl

Ever since I heard about John Lewis collaborating with Mother of Pearl on a capsule collection last month, I've had the launch date earmarked in my diary. Whilst the world might have changed hugely since I first read about the collection, it arrives officially today, and is one well worth expl…

17.04.2020- Lockdown Living: My Cultural Comforts

At the moment, I'm sure I'm not the only one who is reaching for the cultural comfort blanket of films, television programmes and books which are old favourites, and which I know are guaranteed to put a smile on my face. There's something really important about these feel-good essentia…

15.04.2020- What I Wore Today #411

Still working through my backlog of outfit snaps! Although these aren't particularly season appropriate, looking back through some photos from earlier in the year is affording me the perfect opportunity to share some of my as yet unseen winter essentials on these pages, as well as allowing me …

13.04.2020- Spring Snaps

Whilst there's no question that the current situation as we are facing it is a strange and scary one, I'm trying to seek the positive in as much of what I can control as possible. It's easy to feel helpless at times like this, but there are still glimmers of light around if you look fo…

10.04.2020- On my Bookshelf #10

One of the things which I'm trying to enjoy about the current situation is having the opportunity to get some more reading done. Whilst it can be a little bit tricky to switch off to start with, I tend to find that once I've got settle into a regular reading routine (usually before bed), i…

08.04.2020- What I Wore Today #410

Again, it feels very strange to be sharing posts like this at the moment, but keeping a regular blogging routine is something which is really helping me to maintain a sense of structure and normality, especially as the days seem to be merging into one more and more. I'm also now on furlough fr…

03.04.2020- On the Menu: Thomas's at Burberry

Before the world around us changed so completely, my lovely friend Lucy and I went for a leisurely Saturday lunch at somewhere which has been on my 'to visit' list for as long as I can remember- Thomas's at Burberry. This was nearly three weeks ago now (is anyone else finding it imposs…

01.04.2020- What I Wore Today #409

It feels like years ago since these photos were taken (well, it was last December), but I'm still struggling to get my head around how much has changed since then. The world has turned upside down in such a short space of time, and it's almost impossible to know how long it will be before …
