This week's favourite blog posts are all about beautiful places and moving words. Grab a brew and enjoy! I loved Hello Giggles' writers' posts for National Poetry Day, particularly these ones on Maya Angelou and Sylvia Plath. Is it wrong to want to visit somewhere just because it looks super Instagrammable? Portmeirion in North Wales… Continue reading Saturday Share #114

As always, I'm all about dem stationery and book recommendations and swooning over places I can't afford to visit. Here are the blog posts I've been loving this week. Emmie's blogger's guide to autumn had me nodding in agreement/approval. I love Emma's nursery decor for her upcoming arrival. Makes me feel bad that we've been… Continue reading Saturday Share #112

Self-Care Sunday #29

My blog is one of the few areas of my life where I like to be consistently busy - it gives me a reason to keep working on it rather than slacking. Plus regular collaborations are great for my self-confidence; I must be doing something right! The blog is also the part of my life… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #29

As much as I consider myself a lifestyle blogger this little blog seems to become more and more stationery and books obsessed. Not that I'm complaining. And my blog reading seems to be much of the same. I was surprised earlier this year by how much I enjoyed Raven Boys and I love the nerdy… Continue reading Saturday Share #111
