I’m just gonna talk to you a second about my love of leopard print. If you ask what my favorite color is, 9 times out of 10 I’ll say it’s leopard print. It’s completely genetic; my mother loves leopard print just as much as I do! Now, before you get carried away and think that I have a secret wardrobe only filled with this amazingly spotty pattern, I should say, I’m very selective in what things I buy. It’s so easy to go the slightly overkill route with leopard print, so I really have to love something to buy it. This skirt for example, I didn’t even hesitate!
If you know me well, or even if you don’t, would you say that I’m an introvert or an extrovert? Most of the time, people tell me I’m an extrovert, which is true… to an extent. I can be quite loud and boisterous, I love socializing, and P likes to tell me that I have gumption. I am definitely a social butterfly but I’d also say that I have some introverted qualities as well. It’s one of those odd things we don’t talk about very much, and sometimes the world feels very either or. Well, I will freely admit that I fall under the category of being an introverted extrovert.
One of the things I really love about London is how many different neighborhoods there are and how each of them really has it’s own character. Living in South London, I sometimes feel like I go to work and I go home, or I only go to those key neighborhoods that I know, like Notting Hill or Chelsea. There is so much of this city worth exploring and I’d be kidding myself if I thought I knew all there was to see! I’ve even made a little list of areas I want to explore, and Chiswick has been on the top of that list for quite a while. I finally managed to spend a little time in this pocket of west London with a friend, and it was pretty fun! It’s a very pretty area, and well worth a visit!
Here we are again, another lovely Sunday for relaxing and enjoying life! I’m starting to enjoy theses posts, and I hope you are too! You might have noticed that I took a tiny little break last week, for reasons I’ll talk about below, but I’m back and feeling great! Life has been pretty great, and here are 5 good things that I’m excited about!
Apple crumble is one of my all-time favorite desserts. When I was little, my godparents would take me apple picking, and we would make apple pie and all manner of apple based treats! Lucky for me, P’s grandmother has a sweet little garden in the back of her house here in London, and they have several apple trees that bloom and fruit throughout the year. Now that autumn is upon us, the apples ave started falling and that means it’s time to whip up a little apple crumble!Continue Reading
The first day of fall is only a few days away, which means colder weather is officially on the way. If you’re anything like me, you’re going to be dreaming of the days when it didn’t get dark at 3pm, and doing everything you can to maintain that summer vibrancy. As we all become slightly more dormant in the colder weather, there are so many things we can do to make that transition a bit more enjoyable! Now I know hygge has become a trendy thing of late but I’m a firm believer in it. Since I’ve started actively inputting a little hygge in my life I’ve noticed a few things. 1) it’s had a remarkably positive effect on my mental health. 2) I’m cultivating and nurturing important relationships, and 3) I’m making much more time for the things that make me happy and cutting down on the things that don’t! So, I’m gonna spread a little hygge cheer, and share a few things you can do as the weather gets chillier, and the days get a little darker…
