It Was Cement To Be

I’ve lived in this lovely little house for over 4 years now, which is crazy considering I’ve moved house nearly every year from the age of 18 to 25 (which is a RIGHT pain when you have to complete paperwork and it asks for your address for the last FIVE years)! More to the point,…

DIY: Paintin’ Pots

(As if I’m writing a blog post about DIY and paint skills… I have none, haha) Recently I worked for a company called Life With Art. They occupied an old office space in Ipswich and ran workshops and exhibitions, providing creative opportunities for members of the community (normally people who are older, living with mental…

Reviewing 2017

As everyone is jumping on the #bestnine2017 tag to post on their Instagram feed, and getting in the prosecco ready for their evening celebrations (definitely need to do this before Tesco closes…) I thought it would be good to do another little round up of my year in the garden. 2017 has been chocka block…

Revisiting | Lizzie’s Garden

Hello and happy summer everyone. I’m still enjoying lovely, sunny days in Suffolk and have a beach-filled holiday booked in September to keep me going too! I LOVE gardens in the summer, when everything is in bloom and you can sit & relax in the evening! Unfortunately my own garden still isn’t at it’s peak,…

Summer Love

I say summer love, but I’m having a real love-hate relationship with the garden at the moment. I’ve reached a super busy period of the year work-wise, so getting out in the garden is proving tricky. On top of that, I went off to GLASTONBURY festival (capitals needed) for a week and there happened to…

Suffolk Show ’17

I’m really excited to write this post! I’ve lived in Suffolk nearly all of my life (minus 4 years in the city of London) and can you believe it, I’ve never been to the Suffolk Show! Its such an annual highlight in this region, and so many friends who have been have come back buzzing…

What’s Growing On?

As it’s finally spring and the weather is mostly lovely at the moment, I thought I’d share my spring time progress with you all and let you know what’s growing on in my garden (love a good garden pun). There’s so many days when I’m working and wishing I was in the garden instead, not…

New Year Resolutions

2017! It’s come around quick and I can honestly say this is the first year I’m really motivated to achieve big things. Last year saw exciting changes such as moving in with my boyfriend, starting a new job and setting up amazing projects for my dance company. A few things I’m hoping to tick off…

Indoor Living | Pt 2

Happy New Year folks! Last year was a pretty decent one for me, with loads of changes, new experiences and chapters starting up! However, one chapter remaining open was my Indoor Living post, so here’s part 2 as promised. Hopefully you all have some pennies left over from Christmas, or have a few vouchers to…

Indoor Living | Pt 1

As it’s winter time there’s not much to do around the garden, so my focus has come indoors and my house is slowly turning into a mini jungle; which I love. It means when I don’t have any plants to tend to outside, I can turn my attention to the ones in the house. I…

App-tastic

As most people in their 20’s, I’m somewhat attached to my phone. The fact it’s an iPhone really doesn’t help – so many apps to play around with, from BBC News to Snapchat. The great thing is, so many people are inventing 100’s of apps a day, all catering to different people and needs. I…

Wrapping Up

It has taken a few weeks for me to realise winter is actually on our doorstep. I have been so engrossed with autumn that I was ignoring the fact the temperature had dropped rapidly, and weather warnings concerning frosts and snow were coming more regularly (more in the north luckily). So I’ve finally got my…
