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…

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,…

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…

Pumpkin Picking | The Pop Up Farm

I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion – Henry David Thoreau I’ve never been pumpkin picking before. In fact, last year I didn’t even buy a pumpkin. Not one. I don’t know why because I had planned…

3 Mindful Magazines To Read This Autumn/Winter

 I love a good magazine. As a child, I always (politely) asked my mum for the latest issue of whatever magazine I was reading at the time. Top of the Pops, Girl Talk, Mizz. There was something about them that I just really enjoyed. And I always felt adult for…

Embracing Autumn

Welcome Autumn   Today marks the Autumn Equinox, which means it is finally acceptable to start getting excited for the months ahead. The leaves are starting to fall, the air is crisp and the evenings are slowly getting darker each day. I love this time of year because not only…

Graduating & Life after University

SO THAT’S IT, I’M NO LONGER A STUDENT and I can’t really tell you how I feel because the truth is, I feel a whole bundle of emotions. I’m excited to start my career and wave goodbye to exams, but I also feel, well – lost. And I guess that’s…

The Joy of Picture Books

I love picture books. You probably already guessed that from the title of this post. I’m not ashamed to say I wrote my dissertation on picture books. Not quite your standard literature essay topic. And if you’re thinking it must have been easy, it wasn’t. Believe me. But seriously, there…
