Let's Talk Textiles

It’s odd how spirts of inspiration can come your way so suddenly and with so much liveliness. I’m lying on my bed currently, it’s Friday and I am literally shattered. This week has been a battering one, yet I don’t want to crawl into my covers, but talk to you about something that I feel deserves a post all to itself. Like many a child, I grew up drawing and creating- never loosing that passion and imagination. I have a pure love for projects and presenting pretty much anything. I have reams of paper and notebooks full of design work that I have composed from around the age of eight, and although I no-longer design extravagant ball gowns, I have always kept my love for textiles.

The Soap&Glory Skincare Edit

Scrubs, facewashes and cleansers- skincare both excites and boggles my mind. For a while now I’ve tried out a few products here and there (whoop whoop for the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish) but I’ve found my favourite products all come from one brand- Soap & Glory.

The Spring Nail Love Afair

For some reason, for the past few months I’ve has a complete love/hate relationship with my nails. Then, I picked up this pretty nude-y pink shade on a spree in Boots and I can’t stop wearing it.

Revision Reality

This year, I have the treat of being in year 11, which means that I face my first year of ‘proper’ exams. For the past few months, I have been working hard and researching for tips and information about the dreaded ‘revision’. However, all of these videos and blog posts seem to be the same, and none of them seem close to my current experience. I wanted to write about the realities of revision and my honest thoughts about it, tips that I’ve found to be actually useful and challenges I’ve been facing.

Sunday Spring-wear

Somehow, the sun came out last weekend, and –as it is now officially spring- I got to wear an outfit that didn’t need layers of clothing or boots. These photos were actually taken on Easter Sunday when the sun was bright in the sky (until the rain came in the afternoon) and, as I really liked this sweet and causal outfit, I thought I’d write a post about it.

Last Sunday's Spring Haul

So for some reason, today I have been feeling generally really inspired. I’m sitting here, all tucked up in my blanket, with an emptied cup of tea next to me, and I just feel that I want to write. Last weekend, I was having a bit of a stressful one and realised that I was in need of a shop. There was nothing in particular I was looking for but sometimes that feel-good feeling you get from getting the odd new thing, can really boost your mood. So, to cut a long story short, I went shopping and picked up a good bunch of things.
