I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Order it from here!

Buy my book!!!!!

Yippeeee! The day I have always dreamed of! My novel, Be In The Place comes out officially on the book stands today. Please either order it by clicking on this link.

or get nice person at your local book shop to order it in for you. John Adams in Tonbridge will be stocking it, so if you’re local to me, pop in and buy it there! Feel free to tell all booksellers what a wonderful person I am and therefore their store would do very well by stocking Be In The Place by Helen Hobden!!! Thankyou!

So when I meet someone and they naturally say, “What do you do?” Instead of replying with, “Oh, well, I er…I um…well I sit at home and…um…well I write.” And then get a funny look. I can hold my head up high and momentarily get a bit of an ego and say, “Actually I am an author.”

hehe!

10 ideas to help you get through the day
January 29, 2017
I’m writing this on the dreariest January day ever with rain pouring down and freezing cold hands; it’s barely surprising that we are likely to feel depressed at this time of year.

The best way to deal with those times is usually distraction. By all means, take a little time to yourself if you need it, but then I think the best thing to do is find something else to keep your mind occupied. Here are some ideas…..

What to do when your photos don’t match your Instagram! (A black and white photography project)
September 1, 2018
The use of Instagram means something different to different people, and I’ll write more about my feelings on that in another post, but briefly, I’ll tell you that my Instagram, @HelenHobden is fairly curated with some of my best photography included. However, whilst away in Connecticut, slouched on the hotel-room armchair, having a break from typing; I realised that the simple scene with my feet up on the arm would look great as a square-cropped photo in grainy high-contrast black and white….

Adulting: A series of things I should’ve learned by now – Dealing with the post
April 9, 2017
This is my second blog post in my series about adulting. Just because I’m nearly forty; doesn’t mean I’m any good at it! This time I’m talking about the stuff that comes through the letter box. I dread it with a passion. Unless I’ve bought something from ebay, I am so happy when the post van drives on past! It’s not so bad if the post-person brings it round to the back porch, because that means there’s a parcel, which is quite exciting. However, apart from postcards from my parents, there really is nothing good about the letters that fall on the damp stone floor in our hallway. I’ll do everything in my power to pretend they’re not there….
