Most worn: Spring/Summer 2015

Simplifying my wardrobe still remains the biggest battle in my attempts to live more ‘minimally’. I make a lot of mistakes; that is, I buy things thinking they’ll work then find that they don’t, or I buy things without even thinking at all. I feel like blogs can be an exacerbating factor in this, too

summer wreath – a tutorial

I shared this simple summer wreath on Instagram and got a few requests for a tutorial, so here it is. It’s really easy to make; something about weaving the flowers through is really quite soothing, and it gives me a valid excuse to go out and gather up a basket of wildflowers.

I remember being desperately excited, sure it would never really happen for us, but also, particularly in the small hours

a feathered house guest

There’s a chicken in my kitchen. There’s a chicken in my kitchen quite a lot these days, to be honest; when she isn’t there she’s generally sitting on the sofa, sleeping by a radiator or, at best, pecking at the window on the front door. I’m not sure she fully understands what being a chicken’s
