30.10.2020- Why Self-Care Matters

If I'm being completely honest, until a few years ago, I didn't really buy into all of the self-care solutions which I saw being shared, both online and off. I say that as someone who used to be hard wired to not switch off, would feel the need (or perhaps the compulsion) to check work emai…

28.10.2020- What I Wore Today #436

The final week of October! I'm really not sure how we got here to be honest, but the end of another month looms. With the clocks going back at the weekend, I'm attempting to head off the almost inevitable seasonal slump, firing up my Lumie light like it's going out of fashion and wonder…

26.10.2020- Adventures in Baking: Madeleines

Hello! Or should that be Bonjour! The subject of today's baking post is a classic French favourite which, until recently, I had never ever baked. Can you believe that? Given that I'm such a huge fan of the Madeleines  which come pre-wrapped from the supermarket, this fact baffles me too, bu…

23.10.2020- Travel Talk: How to Spend 48 Hours in Arundel, West Sussex

*looks around nervously* I'm not too sure whether posting a retrospective travel post at the moment is the best of ideas, but it's so strange to think that this little adventure down to Sussex was only a few weeks ago...and even stranger now that things seem to be shifting backwards each a…

21.10.2020- What I Wore Today #435

Aaaand, just like that it feels like we're back to square one again, doesn't it? Honestly, I think I might have to stop watching the news again before too long- everything is becoming just a BIT MUCH. Not knowing what will happen from day to day, let alone week to week is something which is…

19.10.2020- Adventures in Baking: Lemon Cupcakes

Another week, another bake! Cake has been a total balm to the soul for me over the last few months, and, as I've said before, the process of following a recipe to create something has been a total tonic. Whilst we're still in the process of having out kitchen renovated, I'm drawing up a…

16.10.2020- Most Wanted: The Cosy Edit

As winter slowly creeps up on us, and it's looking like we'll be spending more time than usual cocooned in our own homes over the next few months, I'm sure I'm not the only one who is feeling the need to upgrade my cosy game a little bit. I've more or less been living in the sam…

14.10.2020- What I Wore Today #434

Goodness, it feels very strange looking back on these photographs from the summer given what's unfolding just at the moment. I remember how lovely it was to feel slightly more optimistic about things just then, and although I'm trying to feel positive about the next few months it's quit…

12.10.2020- Adventures in Baking: Floral Shortbread

Aaand, we’re back at Monday again! I have to say that I’m not quite sure where the weeks are going just at the moment, but keeping busy is really helping to take my mind off of lots of the other bits and bobs happening elsewhere at the moment. I’ve been trying to create some semblance of routine fo…

09.10.2020- On the Menu: Peggy Porschen Afternoon Tea at The Lanesborough

It's something of an understatement to say that trips out to eat have been few and far between in 2020, but it's definitely made those adventures which I have made to the outside dining world all the more special. A similar truth is that one of the things which has really helped me to get t…

07.10.2020- What I Wore Today #433

Another week, another worry! That might very well be my motto for 2020- it certainly looks like what remains of this year might very well end up being just as confusing and chaotic as the last six months. Like everyone, I find myself going through various stages of ups and downs with life just at t…

05.10.2020- Adventures in Baking: Lemon Bundt Cake

Another week, another bake! As I've mentioned in a few previous posts, baking has been something of a salvation for me this year, and I'm really excited to have fallen back in love with this most meditative of hobbies. Having more time for the things which I really love has undoubtedly been…

02.10.2020- Beauty Buys: Everyday Essentials

I'm sure I'm not alone in having slightly overhauled my day-to-day beauty routine over the last six months or so. Without a regular commute, my skin has had a total break from wearing makeup every day (which has done it the world of good), and as a rule I've been using far fewer product…
