Ten Things

The last month has been pretty crazy since I got my new job. As last weekend was the first one I've had completely by myself at home, I caught up on what's been happening on the internet. I also finally took some much needed time for myself to do something other than work, which was lovely and much needed. Here are ten things I've loved this week...

  1. Daffodils. Daffodil Day is August 28 and is a day to raise funds for cancer research, prevention and support services. 
  2. Kikki.K Happiness Journal - I got this around Christmastime from my lovely friend Holly and love it. It breaks down each month into objectives and goals and I find it really useful for accomplishing both big and small goals. 
  3. You Won’t Regret That Tattoo Documentary 
  4. The Princess Diaries: Royal Wedding. I've just started reading it and am loving reconnecting with Mia - reading that series was so important back in high school and it's nice to have her back.
  5. 15 Minutes After 5 Years by Scarphelia. Katie's honesty with her readers is so inspiring; her blog is truly like a diary. I cannot recommend Scarphelia enough.
  6. Anthropologie Hinged Hanging Picture Frame - I just got one of these and love it although it's really difficult deciding what should go in it!
  7. Spirituality - spiritual card decks in particular. I picked up Chakra Wisdom Oracle Cards and Fortune Reading Cards and am loving them both. The craziest thing happened with the Chakra cards - I was looking through each one when I first got them so I could make a connection with them and one card immediately reminded me of my mother - it was the Guilt card. The next day my mum asked me to do a reading for her so I was shuffling them as normal and one card flipped in the deck; it was the Guilt card. I love when I feel in tune with a card deck, it's so satisfying.
  8. Typo Wooden Marquee Light - I don't know where I would put this if I bought it but I can't stop myself from wanting to buy it.
  9. The Wanderlust of #Vanlife. Wanderlust is a very big trend at the moment and has been for years. I love the idea of driving out to the middle of nowhere, leaving the real world behind, and connecting with strangers. Although I might be too much of an introvert to sleep in a van with numerous other people.
  10. Diary of a Fangirl by Girl Lost In The City. 
I'd love to hear what you've been loving - leave any suggestions in the comments (particularly for videos and small documentaries; I'm loving those right now). 


  1. I love reading posts like this and the photographs you take are absolutely beautiful. I love all bright coloured flowers, but daffodils are one of my absolute favourites!

    1. Thank you Bethany for the lovely comment! I love brightly coloured flowers too, yellow makes me so happy even though it used to be my least favourite colour x
