rip long hair! Yesterday I finally got my hair cut after months of growing it out. This photo was taken exactly 2 minutes before I had to leave for my appointment!
Sorry I missed this weeks blog post!! I am kind of in a creative rut so PLEASE comment suggestions for what you want to see on the blog! I am thinking of writing about things to do once you get your license because that’s the only thing on my mind right now (2 days people!!) but please leave suggestions!
A weird goal of mine this year has been to read more books from the list of 1001 books to read before you die, and I’m pretty proud to have added on a solid nine so far!
Do you have any weird or niche goals for the year?
⋒ A Happy Sunday campers...it’s me 👋🏻Apologies for my radio silence and lack of posts the past couple weeks but what with my design business, redecorating my office and working on a little side hustle, my blog writing time has amounted to zero. But I’m finally a bit more organized having spent the weekend getting my shiz together and I’ve managed to pop a new post up on @wonderingenglishrose today. If like me you love this time of year, then you might fancy having a read as it’s all about how to have a memorable Halloween. If you’re local to Essex/London, there’s links to a few Halloweeny places to visit and also some really sweet Autumnal bits and bobs you can pick up online to help set the mood. I’d love to know what you’re up to this Halloween week too. In between work, I’ll be buying a few pumpkins and hunting for a costume, what about you? 🕸✨
Lovely evening at my mums to round off a fab weekend 😌 Her house is so autumnal and cosy at the moment - including this GORGEOUS autumnal bouquet - and she cooked us a delicious roast dinner, mine and Jonny’s first roast since Easter 😱 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve managed to avoid that “oh God it’s Monday” feeling today because I’ve got such a good week planned! A dinner out tomorrow, a gig on Thursday, date night on Friday and lots of exciting/fun projects going on at work 😄 what have you all got planned? #shinyhappybloggers#reallifeandstyle#sundayvibes
Hope you’ve had a lovely weekend! ✨ Yesterday, I wrote a blog post all about Instagram! I talked about the effect it’s having on blogs, and about bots, ads and the dreaded algorithm. The link’s in my bio if you fancy reading it. Do you think that Instagram is having a negative effect on blogs?
what a delightful sight on a sunday. spent the day strolling round pretty streets of nottingham taking a few outfit snaps here and there, came along this beauty sitting on someone’s driveway. couldn’t face going onto someone’s drive to get a photo with it so just have this beautiful photo instead. what a dream car 💚
In fine fall fash 🎃 🍁- a hocus pocussing of plastic pumpkin props for some Halloween huzza, and a pre-pumpkin spiced cappucino to caffeinate the creation of our comedy sketch “staged” by the banksy wannabe walls of the Custard Factory, amongst its camera carriers all clicking away at the concrete turned canvas and it’s spray canned curio, and then also the partying Peaky Blinder picture bombers of Brum (see last pic I shit you not the gang has come back from the graves) - Oh and on another note, check out the published pages of the Real Peaky Blinders in comparison to the performance on the programmes and television series✌🏻Yey or ney drama llama???! 🕺🏻👯♂️💥🎭👹🎩👈🏻🖥
A few Kiko products I'm loving right now 😍 I'm obsessed with the formula of the Dark treasure shadow, it has a gorgeous foil effect which looks beautiful when the light catches the eyes! 🙌 (Products: Dark Treasure metal foil shadow in 06 Taupe Lava stone, Flawless fusion bronzer powder in 01 and Shade fusion blush in 03 🙌) #makeupflatlay#kikomilano
I love weekend getaways to my second home. Definitely excited to one day live here, if only I could bring the sea a little closer!
Disclaimer: I didn't aaaaactually get up and head out in the field to do yoga. I went for a lovely jog on the common and stumbled across this beautiful view. Fairly sure my pelvis is out of whack but its the thought that counts... right?

// REBEL REBEL // How's everyone's Sunday been? // Mine's been a 50/50 split. Both productive... (two washloads, a food shop, driving lesson and blog planning 💪🏽) and relaxing... (coffee, bike ride, Sunday morning lie in and cuddles with one our youngest rebel girls 💖) X // 📸: unknown
Y’all know how much I adore @shapeofwatermovie and today I finally got to meet @actordougjones! He completed the autographs on my poster and I got to give him the DIY Funko Pop of the Asset that I made at the beginning of the year 🧜♂️🥚 Thanks so much for coming out to the UK and just being the loveliest ever, Doug! You made my 6 hour round trip from London completely worth it 💙
After cramming a 3 year degree into 2 years, working a full time internship as well as a Saturday job at LUSH, I’ve finally got the email to say I’ll be graduating with a First Class Honours degree! WHAAAAT!! All that hard work, which honestly felt never ending at times, has paid off and I’m literally so proud of myself 🎉🎉🎉🎉
More #autumnal loveliness! This time in St Albans. So beautiful! Wonder how long they’ll last? Scroll through my feed and one I posted just last week has already lost its #autumnleaves 🍂 Enjoy it while it lasts! 🍁❤️
Got an assortment of strange looks being in my heeled boots, relatively dressed up whilst everyone else was in their hiking gear 👸🏼 Little did they all know 2 minutes after this photo was taken I was sitting in my pants, frantically trying to get changed as Ben drove us away to get McDonalds. Another shooting day, another bit of class lost ✌🏼 #midsizestyle#slowstyling

Puppy love. 💕 Happy Sunday you beautiful bunch! I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend. I spent today round my nana’s helping her set up her tv and doing quizzes. This is my dog Amber if you haven’t already met, she used to be a guide dog and she’s just fab. 😭 Wishing you all a great week ahead 😘
Seeing as October is throwing so many warm autumnal days at us I’m going to be keeping my bare legs out as long as I can 😎 I’m now off for half term (thank the lord) so been keeping today super chilled with binging Making A Murderer and editing my most recent weekly vlog
After an amazing week in Edinburgh, we have landed back to reality with a bump. Today we moved Ava's cot into her own room (sob) and washed a lot of clothes and generally caught up on housework. Can't say I don't miss chilling in a massive hotel bed eating pizza and chips and wandering around the city taking in the sights though
