win tickets to #YorkLitFest !

Book are magical, aren't they? I just love words. I've read and written ever since I could, although in the past few years it's been much more writing than reading. Sometimes I need a little inspiration, and a little push to get back into reading, instead of just watching the same stuff on Netflix every night.

how do you want to be remembered?

how do you want to be remembered

I've been thinking for days about how I feel uninspired to write. I've had Beyonce - I Was Here stuck in my head all morning. And then it hit me - I can smoosh these two together and make a blog post out of it. #BlogSkillz

The reason that song is stuck in my head is because of a conversation I had not too long ago with one of my all time favourite humans, Bee. Our conversations never really end, and sometimes they get really weird.. but this was a poignant snippet for me. It really stuck with me.

We were discussing how we'd like to be remembered after we're gone.

Might sound a bit morbid to the regular person, but when you've been around illness and death, you're kind of predisposed to thinking about things like that. And it's much more positive than it sounds. Honest. Hear me out.

designed by nature.

Most of the time, jewellery feels so uncomfortable and in the way - I never wear rings or loose bracelets, I'll only maybe wear a watch, and perhaps a simple necklace. My necklace choices lately have been very much inspired by flora & fauna, so it makes total sense to don this silver lamium pendant. 

The shape is so unusual to me - I'm not sure I've ever looked at a lamium flower - and such work has gone into the detail.

the magic of tea.

"A day without tea is a day without joy."

Is there anything more British than a cuppa? The list of ailments that can be cured by a mug of the good stuff is endless - I've listed some of my favourites below!

I've been getting an extra warm fuzzy feeling inside when I drink my tea lately, as I've been drinking this smugglers brew from Cornish Tea. You all know how much I love the south west of England, and after a little trip down to Cornwall to visit my cousin & her wife, I feel like that love has been renewed.

living room lust.

. - see more on my living spaces Pinterest board

Spring is heading our way - honestly, it is - so I'm starting to think about freshening up my surroundings. Unfortunately, there's not a whole lot I can do in a small rented house with a very limited budget, but I definitely can daydream..
