A LITTLE SATURDAY RAMBLE

I’m currently sat on my sofa under the coziest blanket I own, with two snoring (and dreaming – twitchy paws!) kittens either side of me as the snow falls outside. I was perusing the internet on my laptop …which led to me placing a somewhat extravagant madewell order… and clicked my way across here, to […]

Life in Lockdown: 5 Good Things

So, things right now are…. odd. ‘Unprecedented‘ is the word everyone is throwing about. Almost every email or text that pings through starts with a sentence about how weird life is at the moment. Everywhere you look you’re reminded that we’re in the middle of a global crisis. It’s really tough to strike the right […]

Photography Journal: A Chilly Sunday Walk

Today was the perfect lazy sunday! We had a slow start, and once we were up and dressed we pulled on our cozy coats and wellies and headed to our local national trust property for a wander. As soon as we arrived, we grabbed hot drinks (a hot chocolate with all the trimmings is the […]

We adopted a fur baby! Meet our new fluffball

Meet Meier! (pronounced Maya – her first cat dad has Swiss-German roots, and she’s named after his old neighbour!).  Meier is a Lilac British Shorthair – I’ve always really wanted a shorthair – ever since watching the McVities advert really.

Back in October last year, Aled proposed! We’re going for quite a long engagement because we’re both finishing our PhDs right now, so we don’t have a huuuuge amount of free time.

The Little Acre Kitchen: My New Favourite Lunch Spot

I LOVE food. One of the main reasons that I exercise regularly is that I could never diet. Life’s too short. Now, when it come to eating OUT, I can be a bit of a fuss-pot. I hate paying for food that I could make better myself. Because of this, I’m constantly on the look […]

The Little Things: A Much Needed Dose of Vitamin Sea

I’ve said it so many times before, but I’m happiest by the sea (or a turquoise blue alpine lake…. i’m not fussy). Theres just something about the sea that I find incredibly calming. I always come away feeling as though my mind has been de-cluttered and re-booted! Whenever we have time, we love going to […]

The little things: Spring has Sprung! (…finally!)

One of the best things about living in England is the seasons. I feel like whenever we step into a new one, everyone gets so excited! (myself included). We’ve had the odd day that has felt like spring, only for temperatures to plummet again! This last week, however, has been absolutely glorious! More sunshine, lighter evenings […]

The Little Things: Wrapped-Up Winter Walks

One of my absolute favourite things to do in the winter is to wrap up warm and go out for a walk. Getting half an hour of fresh air is the best way for me to clear my mind… plus, curling up with a hot cup of cocoa after being out in the cold is one of […]
