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 🙂

ELLEgirl magazine

Editor: Claire Irvin

The June issue of ELLEGirl is out now and is a summer festival special, but this is a magazine I buy all the time, so my review is about this magazine in general, not specifically this particular issue (though it does have a particularly excellent book review in there ;o)
Usually when I find a magazine I like, it folds within a few months, (Nova; Minx), but fortunately this one has kept going and I love it. I can’t believe there aren’t more magazines out there for young adults actually, Elle girl is the only one that fills the gap between the ‘How to get a boy to like you’ magazines, and the ‘How to be a trendy 30-something’ ones. I’m not interested in the magazines with the pictures of celebrities with amazingly long fingers and claiming the shadow across some skinny pop star’s bum is actually cellulite. But I am very interested in fashion – especially fashion that comes from shops, not out-of-reach designers; perfectly fulfilled by Ellegirl.
It’s about style, independence and being cool! To give you an example, this month there’s a good festival guide, a story of a girl who organises small festivals and events, a girl who tested drugs for cash, articles about 3 celeb festival-goers and research into why ugly boys look so good on stage! Regulars are style and beauty news, guides to customising clothes, careers advice and an interesting column by Peaches Geldof. If you haven’t bought this magazine before, this is definitely a good one to be getting on with!

When Adagio Teas asked if I’d like to work with them, I had to be honest in my reply; that I don’t actually like tea. On my trips to America, this is like saying I’m not actually British, but my main disgruntle is that I couldn’t join in with all the beautiful Instagrams of cups of tea! I do, however like fruit infusions, and the mango flavoured tea I had at the Jane Austen Centre a couple of weeks ago was very nice, so I asked if I could try their flavoured tea….
making a new patio area
Making a social outdoor dining area
September 16, 2018
We have been dragging our heels for ages over buying a new set of outdoor furniture. Our old wooden table and chairs are well and truly rotting away. We have also had it in our minds to build a verandah at the back of the house, leaning against the kitchen wall. However, each spring has come along and we’ve ended up spending any spare money we’ve had on a holiday instead. So it hasn’t happened, but the idea was still there, and it made a choice on the garden furniture difficult to make…..
