A walk in the woods

It's always been a tradition for me to go on a nice long new years day walk, usually either at the beach or on the moors. This year was no different. Despite waking up to heavy rain, Willow, Lewis and I were determined to go out for a walk and keep tradition. We headed to Stoke Woods on the outskirts of Exeter, with the hope of staying relatively dry under the trees. We totally lucked out as it stopped raining when we arrived and only started again once we got back to the car.


A lot of our walk was spent taking really stupid selfies, at this point I'd just been moaning about my double chin so Willow's response was to pull my hat over my face. Turns out this is one of my favourite photos, ha!


These photos pretty much sum up our entire walk in the woods, there was a lot of laughing, jumping in puddles, and Willow shouting NO every time she thought she was going to get splashed. It was a great way to start the year.

2015 in Review


Hello there,

How the heck are we in 2016 already? After a year of really slacking on the old blog front, I'm really hoping to get focused and back into it, I miss you guys. 2015 was a year of change for me and all for the better, heres what happened:
  • I left a relationship that was making me unhappy and really focused on putting myself first;
  • I moved home and into my lovely flat (there will be a tour coming soon);
  • With a new home came some wonderful new people, some of whom have become my best friends and I am incredibly lucky to have met them;
  • Old friendships were rekindled, best friends got married and had babies;
  • The summer was full of adventures, beach bbq's and making so many memories;
  • Anna and I spent a lot, and also not enough, time at the gym, but more importantly together, I love this lady so, so much;
  • Dismaland blew my mind so much I went twice, I do love the weird and wonderful;
  • There were some interesting Tinder dates, ah Tinder, and some not so interesting, but mostly I've enjoyed having me time and being able to be totally selfish. 
I'm sure plenty more has happened than that, but these are definitely some of the highlights. I'm really excited to see what this year has to offer. I hope it's a wonderful one for all of you.

Lots of love

At the going down of the sun,
and in the morning, 
we will remember them.

Autumn | On the Moor


I love Autumn, it is hands down my favourite season, and there is no where better to live than the south west at this time of year. I'm fortunate enough to be surrounded by the seaside and countryside, and I've been enjoying it as much as possible lately. My Dad and I recently went up to Castle Drogo, a National Trust property on the edge of Dartmoor. Typically the castle itself was closed while they were doing some maintenance work, but we headed off into the grounds to admire the autumnal landscape. 


These may seem like boring old landscape photos, but the different green tones were pretty amazing to look at, as is always the way the photos don't do it justice. 


I really love it when you stumble across fungi, the red & white speckles are by far my favourite.

Hope you're all having a great week.

Monthly Review | October


So I'm almost a week late posting my October review, but it was a pretty great month for so many reasons...

I attended a wonderful wreath making workshop, hosted by my lovely friends, Willow and Hay.
Anna & I enjoyed a day of fun to celebrate her birthday.
I started a new Saturday job in NGNG, an amazing indie shop in Exeter.
Lots more yoga fun was had with Anna.
Many walks in the woods were had, foraging for goodies and admiring toadstools. 
And of course to end it in style, Halloween. An evening of great company, costumes, gore themed food, and not too scary films (Hocus Pocus), it was ace!

Here's to a fun November, I'm already feeling so festive!!

Lots of love

Autumn Wishlist

So apparently I forgot to publish my autumnal themed wishlist yesterday but better late than never right? I've been browsing the internet for some inspiration to make my flat a little cosier for the coming months, there will be more of that soon. Here are some things I've been drooling over lately...

George at Asda have nailed it with their autumn/winter homeware this year, now if they could just hurry up and open in Exeter that would be great.

Some posts I've loved reading:

Donna is hosting a great give away with New Look, and is wearing some very cute things over at Polkadot Pink
