I have just discovered Jeffery Bales garden designs and I am in love. His designs are inspired by his travels. I urge you to check out his blog, with more pictures of his designs and inspirations.

Outdoors but indoors...

Thank you for all your lovely messages on my last post. I have been absent over the last week as I've been celebrating my 30th birthday (gasp....) in Wales.

Why do old books smell so good...

Apartment therapy
Wishful thinking

Things that Make Me Happy


Pink and Blue


"Lignin, the stuff that prevents all trees from adopting the weeping habit, is a polymer made up of units that are closely related to vanillin. When made into paper and stored for years, it breaks down and smells good. Which is how divine providence has arranged for second hand bookstores to smell like good quality vanilla absolute, subliminally stoking a hunger for knowledge in all of us."
Perfumes: The Guide

I am currently reading A million little pieces by James Frey, how about you guys? xx

Befriending Bears.....

Past POst

Fleet Foxes

Mount Jefferson
Spanish Moss

     I am in love with the new Fleet Foxes song. It makes me want to live in a Tipi and befriend bears. Hmmmmmm odd I know xx

(Ignore the green boxes on the video they are nothing to do with me)

Gloriously Idle....

 Natalie Kucken
Bosnian Coffee - Can't you just smell it?

That Bow

The selby
Unabashedly Prep
The art of doing absolutely nothing. Don't you just love lazy bank holidays? A free day off to laze around drinking coffee and getting stuck into a really good book. Not to forget the picnics in the park with ready made cocktails ; )

If I am honest saying I am not a big Royal family fan is an understatement (controversial I know, sorry!!) but I defiantly enjoyed my extra day being idle. So thank you Will and Kate xx
