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…

Know Your Onions

Apparently ‘know your onions’ is a well known phrase? I’ve never heard of it until now, but I enjoy it.  I’ve also never grown onions before, so a first for a few things in today’s post! Along with my onion sets, I tried my hand at garlic too. This was really exciting for me because…

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…

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…

Plotting

Spring is in the air! It’s so lovely to see everyone’s mood boosted from the sunny weather and longer daylight hours we’ve started experiencing! I’ve had such a busy schedule since January hit and some projects have started to finish, so now I’ve finally got some down-time before it gets crazy again with my new projects. Therefore…

Newbies

This year has launched into full swing-  no messing around. I’m working hard on all things dance and feeling great though. The weather has been so cold but so many days have been sunny and fresh – perfect winter weather in my books. Therefore I’ve been craving a day when I’m not working and I can…

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…

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…
