GET YOUR OWN ASS HOME.

Have you ever had one of those days that just DID NOT go the way you wanted it to? 

One week ago I found myself sat in Edinburgh airport at 6.30am – 400 miles from home. Overnight there had been enough snowfall in England to send the country into a frenzy. When you live in the UK – the weatherman tells you there will be snow – and of course, you don’t believe him. Like every other year – we were still completely and utterly unprepared when it came. 

Nevertheless – I’d been counting day the days until I could see some of the white stuff falling from the sky and it just so happened that this particular weekend I was away shooting a wedding in Scotland. It was okay though, because according to my perfect plan – it was all going to go off without a hitch, and I was going to make it home in time to roll around in the snow.

NOTHING TO PROVE

If you’ve been following my blog at all, you’ll know that this year – I decided to stop wasting my time on insecurity.

Sounds nice, right? 

For those of you that are just joining my journey now, a short summary :- at the beginning of 2017, I had had enough. I was done. I hated that I was trying so hard to prove myself to people that don’t matter. It was exhausting & stupid. 

So, I stopped.

HOW TO STYLE A COSY MINIMALIST HOME

I like to party. 

By ‘party’, I mean… I like to stay home and watch Netflix.

Throw in a blanket, some chocolate Hobnobs and the comfiest joggers (not for jogging btw) – and you’ve just about reached divinity. 

Winter is coming, the nights are closing in – and 99% of my life until March is going to revolve around my cosy little home. So… naturally, it was only right to invite you over.

WELCOME TO NUMBER 17.

UNCOMFORTABLE? Me too.

Let’s talk about being uncomfortable for a second, shall we? 

Imagine this.

Me.

Wearing a pair of faux leather flares, studded heels, and a big, fluffy-as-hell, pink coat. 

Now… go ahead and place me in the car park of Waitrose – in my local town of Hereford. Populated by only 55,000 people. The county of Herefordshire is literally dubbed the most rural and sparsely populated in England, and for the most part – these people come from farming families.

In this town – cows are all the rage. Beef is a form of currency, and fresh fruit & veg is available from the local farmer’s market. It’s rare that you would walk down the highstreet without seeing somebody that you know. 

“But how do these country folk feel about big, fat, unforgiving leather pants?”, I hear you ask.
