It all feels a lot more serious today doesn’t it? As we prepare for schools to close and my best friend has also just been emergency evacuated from her trip. Selfishly, I’m just looking forward to knowing she’s safe but I know she will be gutted. It feels wrong if I don’t acknowledge the changes day to day with this global situation before getting in to the body of my post because this is a diary and the biggest thing right now is what’s currently going on, so I hope you don’t mind. But with all that aside I’ve been really finding my feet with structuring my days and content, because I guess I’m a little less reliant on travel for my content and its just a bit awkward really isn’t it when people are describing your normal day to day life as “Quarantine” lol!

I jest but am a little grateful to be able to continue creating and adapt in the way that I have. I’m hoping to get a second blog post up today, as well as a video and at some point there should also be a podcast episode with one of my favourite people in the industry, Robin James aka Man For Himself so I hope you have a little listen to that because I poured myself a glass of bubbles and really just relaxed into having a virtual chat with my friend.

Todays outfit is a little self expression, I intended on wearing this for cheese and wine at Woburn mosaic for my Mother in laws birthday last Saturday but we cancelled and chose to stay in and drink Champagne together instead. This necklace (which you can see more of in this evenings video over on YouTube) is a piece I’ve been coveting since I began blogging 9 years ago, back when I wore second hand BlackMilk leggings and Jeffrey Campbell Litas pretty much exclusively. For me these necklaces haven’t and wont date, their bohemian rock influence completely transforms and elevates every outfit it touches and I’m so happy to finally be able to own a piece of this art in my wardrobe.

I’ve teamed it with an Anine Bing vintage style tee and an old Karen Millen faux leather skirt which gives such a different vibe than most pencil skirts which can feel quite corporate sometimes. This outfit is a personal favourite because it feels sexy but grungy and if you’re a regular around here you may know that I never like to have “too much” of any one style and prefer to contrast my looks to give balance and fluidity to my style. But generally, I’m also just trying to wear things that make me feel good regardless of where I’m going because its nice to feel nice.

I’ve also just checked the weather for the weekend and with Saturday and Sunday looking lovely and sunny and the week following looking not too shabby either, I think its time to ramp up the spring outfits and sprinkle a bit of colour into the outfits now.

 

Are you shopping for any pieces in particular right now and what items in your wardrobe are bringing you the most joy? I’d love to know what you are all lusting after right now and what pieces make you feel your absolute best wherever you are spending your days right now! I also want to say a huge thank you for all the comments and love on my posts so far, it means so much and I’m loving bringing you this content more regularly, its a little piece of joy in my day too.

Everything feels a little more optimistic as March begins don’t you think?
It’s the start of spring in my book Evergreen shortly followed by the spring equinox so there’s ample time to prepare, nest and refresh. 
The light returns, hello March 🌱
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad weather attire 💧
A little indulgence from my comfort of my own home thanks to INCREDIBLE @kmp_skin and @freshbeauty Ad 
for the launch of the new Lotus Youth Preserve Resurfacing dream serum which is a gentle AHA serum with prickly pear flower extract said to boost radiance and it was so lovely to be treated to a first trial to get a very first impression of the serum thanks to KMP and her magic hands. I’ve literally never had a facial like it!
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 🌱
