    Clothing is a form of self-expression, and dressmakers help individuals express their personal style and identity through custom-designed garments.

    I have to admit, every time I read your posts I feel so motivated for my own blogs. Between balancing uni, research projects and my blogs, it can be quite tedious but you inspire me to continue writing and posting?? Blogging is definitely my passion and I am so happy I began reading your blogs where we all get to read about your passions too!

The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱
Winter Spring views.
Primrose & Snowdrops are on their way!
February is a very special month, it almost feels like the build up before the crescendo of spring and I can’t help but feel a flutter in my chest at the thought of what’s to come 🌱
Ad a successful day at the races with @boodles wearing my some of my own pieces from their incredible collections, mixed in with my favourite pieces from their Secret Garden collection. This bracelet is showstopping!
