Cornwall Day 2 | St Michael’s Mount

Read Part One here. After leaving Mousehole, we travelled along the coast, through Penzance to Marazion. Our plan for the rest of the day was to visit St Michael’s Mount, a small island with inhabitants just off the coast of Marazion. St Michael’s Mount is a tidal island with a…

Life Lately & Hopes for the Year

So much has changed since I wrote New Beginnings last June. At the time, I had just left my job in marketing to pursue a new career and for weeks I played with the idea of starting a small business of my own. It didn’t happen, clearly, because I’m not…

Cornwall Day 1-2 | Fistral Beach & Mousehole

Last August, Anthony and I spent a week in Cornwall, a place I had always wanted to visit, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. We opted for a cheaper stay with Airbnb in which we rented out a private room within someone’s house in Perranporth. As we were planning to be…

The Arrival of August & Mindful Living This Month

I say this every month, every year, that I’ve become such a cliche, but I really can’t believe August is here already. The older I get, the faster time seems to fly by, and soon I’m going to wake up as an 80 year old woman and wonder where my life…

5 Recent Reads

Something I’ve been trying to do recently is read more. Honestly, when I finished University and started working, I just didn’t make time for books, and as a book lover, it made me feel really bad. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve made more of an effort to rekindle…

Castle Ashby Gardens | Part Two Gallery

I took so many photos from our day out at Castle Ashby that they wouldn’t all fit on one post, but I really wanted to share them on here. So, here are a few (too many) extras from the day. Enjoy, Love Georgie   

Castle Ashby Gardens | Part One

A couple of weekends ago, I somehow managed to drag Anthony along with me to Castle Ashby Gardens in Northampton, after wanting to visit the estate for a while. Truth be told, I would never have known about the place if it wasn’t for Instagram and seeing so many beautiful…

New Beginnings

I can’t believe it’s been four months since I last posted – it feels like it’s been longer! This year, I really wanted to get stuck into blogging, whether anyone reads this little space or not, I just wanted to get into the habit of writing and documenting my thoughts,…

u n d e r s t a n d i n g  s t r e s s  Stress, unfortunately, is a part of life and it’s something every single one of us experiences. Whilst a small level of stress can be a good thing, as it helps to…

Hello 2018 & Life Update

Happy New Year! I always find this time of year strange. Whilst everyone else looks forward to moving into a new year, new challenges, new goals and a chance to get organised, I find the first few days of January can be somewhat – disappointing. Sometimes, it feels wrong to leave a…

A Mini, Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide

It’s less than a week until Christmas! How has this happened? Back in November, I wrote a whole list of ideas that I was hoping to see, do and create this festive period, but I’ve hardly done anything at all. I’ve been struggling with the lack of daylight, and have…
