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 🙂

Weekly Wardrobe – Christmas Concert
December 12, 2016
This week I was part of our Village Voices Christmas Concert – the event of the year for our community choir! Our dress code was black bottoms and a brightly coloured top. The black bottom half was easy – I had several options, but not so many bright tops to choose from in my wardrobe; particularly smart ones. Then I remembered a jacket I have that just screams Christmas; so I went with that! I didn’t leave myself enough time to be photographed on the actual evening of the concert, so I re-created the look yesterday by the Bishop’s Palace in Wells.

I’m sorry!
December 11, 2016
I’ve been very busy on this blog recently; particularly with posting every day for Blogtober, so it feels strange not to have been here much for the last week or so. I expected Vlogmas to be time-consuming, but not quite this much! I am getting quicker at editing the videos, but it’s still taking me all morning every day, and sometimes part of the afternoon too, so I am not getting time to blog as well. I’ve got several blogs almost finished, but not quite, and I’m just not managing to get them done. So, I’m really sorry about this, but please take a look at my You Tube channel to see what I’ve been up to, and for the next couple of weeks, find me there instead. I’ll definitely be continuing Monday’s Weekly Wardrobe post, but I’m sorry if there’s not much in-between for the time being. Thank you for sticking with me. 🙂
Weekly Wardrobe – Dressing for out in the cold!
December 5, 2016
On Saturday I went to watch the Reindeer parade through Wells High Street, and it was just as cold as I thought it would be! The sun was shining though, so it was a really nice day for it and so many people turned out to watch. There was also carol singing and market stalls, and mistletoe for sale, and lovely Christmassy things like that – if you’d like to see it, please look at my Vlogmas Day 4 video on You Tube! Anyway, my outfit was based around the fact that I can’t seem to wear my red coat with my hat, without the hat sliding up to the top of my head and looking ridiculous. Does this happen to anyone else? So, as the icy wind meant that a hat was essential for me, I decided to wear my shawl instead…..
Kilver Court Christmas, Shepton Mallet, Somerset
December 3, 2016
There is one thing that I have really missed since moving from Tonbridge (apart from family of course) and that’s a decent place to visit that sells nice Christmas decorations! We used to go to all the nearby garden centres and they’d have masses of Christmas delights to tempt me, but here in the centre of Somerset, there really isn’t a lot to choose from apart from B&Q and B&Ms. So when I saw that Kilver Court were doing a Christmas evening last Thursday, along with mulled wine, mince pies and carol singing, I had to go! ….
