Stationery porn: My Neighbour Totoro

I adore anything which combines my love of stationery with any of my other passions, namely books and films, so I was super excited to hear about Abrams + Chronicle's new Studio Ghibli range. The collection launched earlier this week with (ridiculously freaking adorable) My Neighbour Totoro postcards* and notecards*. The 30 postcards come in… Continue reading Stationery porn: My Neighbour Totoro

Make a difference

"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." - Aesop (Greek storyteller) I used to think it was naive to believe that one person can make a difference in the world but sometimes that's really all it takes. Sure, we might still be under a Conservative government and Trump is President but… Continue reading Make a difference

Item of the day: Postcards from Literary Emporium

Literary Emporium is a little online heaven for bookworms such as yours truly.

My life in photos: October 2015

Because so much of 'my' month is filled with photos of Jenson, I've decided to split this post into two parts - one featuring my month (general lifestyle shiz) and one featuring Jenson (outfits, toys, activities, etc). Fun, right? 1. I wrote about my miscarriage for Baby Loss Awareness Week 2. I went to The… Continue reading My life in photos: October 2015

Item of the day: Audrey Hepburn tote bag from the National Portrait Gallery

I'm gutted that I can't make the Audrey Hepburn exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery (day trips on the train to London are virtually impossible when you've got a three-month old) and have been perusing the online shop on their website to make up for it. I love the quote on this tote bag -… Continue reading Item of the day: Audrey Hepburn tote bag from the National Portrait Gallery

Plymouth shopping haul

I ventured over the bridge to Plymouth a couple of weeks ago and stocked up on some essential items. I had previously gone through all of the baby stuff we've accumulated and realised that there's actually not much left to get, especially clothes-wise. I still managed to spend the best part of £80 in Primark… Continue reading Plymouth shopping haul
