With my own garden currently a building site, I have never looked forward to a garden party as much as the one that The White Company threw at Eltham Palace. After rushing from appointment to appointment all week, by…
Well guys, Red Letter Days sent me down the river. I spent a very pleasant Saturday afternoon pootling along the river Thames, eating a lovely three course lunch, catching sight of all the landmarks of London, aboard the Symphony…
My alarm clock pinged at the ungodly hour of 6am on a Saturday morning. My friends and family will laugh at this- everyone knows I love my weekend lie ins. But, for this particular Saturday, I was going to…
Gili T had the bluest, clearest water I've ever seen in my life! Didn't get shipwrecked, like jobby here, but a quick speed boat from Lombok did the trick! What else? 🤔 oh yes, baby sea turtles, pony drawn carts, and swings in the sea.
So I've got some coconut rice on the go and chicken with star anise and soy sauce bubbling in a pot because you can take the girl out of Asia etc etc. Apart from that, I wrote about throwing in sponsored posts and how the business side of blogging got me down. So no more! I'm going back to basics. Less business, more me and more of the kind of blogging that I love and originally set out to do. 2017 feels so much more optimistic and subconsciously I was already taking a step away from blogging 'rules'. I never felt like I fit into a 'gang/tribe' or that the kind of content I put out was 'popular'. Oiiii that's enough apostrophes, it's time to eat! Maybe I should write another post about my thoughts on that 🤔
You know, I love a positive Life Lately post but today, I let the gremlins take over and wrote a Shit List. It felt good! I should do them more often. Anyway. Here's another cute London street because I just came home and found a pair of pants outside my house. Get your shit together London, god.
I've hit a wall with Instagram. Just when I think I've got the hang of it, another algorithm doodaawotsit comes along and I'm trailing behind all over again! For the like, 5 of you that do see my feed, here is a wall of shutters. Because if I'm going to hit a wall, at least it's a cute one.
Saturday in Edinburgh was sunny (but cold) however Sunday...was wet and rainy and beautifully moody looking. Especially up here, in the middle of the castle. And I hate to throw around the 'Harry Potter' feel all the time, but this. Serious Harry Potter vibes. Could JK Rowling have written about Hogwarts and the magical wizarding world had it not been for Edinburgh? Mmm, probs not!
Edinburgh, on Easter Sunday. Where I was bundled up in my coat, chunky jumper AND bobble hat. Then I look at the denim jacket I've worn to work all week and remember that yes I do like living in London (because WARMER) Even if the views aren't as pretty as this. From a castle. On a hill. 🙄 #boomtish
This was a coffee plantation in Ubud, where I had nine shots of coffee at a tasting and didn't sleep for a week (joke, as if I'd miss an opportunity to sleep) we came home with a packet of Ginseng coffee; surprisingly good! Also, watched how Kopi Luwak was made and wow. If you know, you know 💩
