Make a room a HOME

Adding a few house plants to your bedroom can easily transform it into a vibrant living space. The gorgeous hues of green instantly brighten up a room and give it a sense of life, making it feel like a true escape. With green being my favourite colour, I added a lick of paint of this…

Growing

My enjoyment in gardening has blossomed this spring- I can’t get enough of the fresh air and nature, especially with my dog Buddy by my side. I’ve added some lovely berry bushes to the garden and planted up some cute pots from ikea with basil seeds and coriander seeds. My next task is actually getting…

SPRING is here

It’s that gorgeous time of year again when the flowers are starting to blossom, the streets are filling with faces wearing sunglasses and the sun is rising higher. No matter which city you’re in, there’s always a happy and relaxed atmosphere that permeates throughout. I absolutely love this positive feel of spring, especially when I’m lucky enough…

P A R I S – Sacré Coeur

  Every time I go to Paris, I go back to see this view. There is a charming juxtaposition of nuns singing in the Basilica whilst street performers play reggae songs on the steps. There is nothing like the serenity inside the church and the bustling ambiance once you go through the church doors. Paris is alive, even when…

VitraHaus- WEIL AM RHEIN

It’s been a while coming since I wanted to write a post about this exquisite architectural masterpiece that finds itself amongst the modest rolling hills before the start of the Black Forest. I plan to take better photos and write a more in depth post on the VitraHaus’ design and content, as it assembles eclectic…

Stunning view I snapped up from the Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, Germany.

Tiles

I came across these intricate Victorian floral tiles whilst roaming around the Manchester Art Gallery. The vivid colours gave me nostalgia of my trip last year to Lisbon, where every building is dressed in lines of colourfully designed tiles.

My First Dress

The day I got to choose my first dress is perhaps one of my first memories and my first fashion-conscious memory. I was almost four years old and I went shopping with my Mum to John Lewis whilst my siblings were at school. The kids clothing was in the corner of the second floor department…

A Little Thing We Call Hope

Hope is a funny thing. We all have it but we use it in many different ways, we hope for many different things. Sometimes people mistake you hoping as a trivial act that is somewhat naive, but is it not them being ignorant calling us hopers dreamers? I know we can hope big things that…

Slug

I found this little guy lurking in my spinach and found it really inspiring-something so tiny and adeventorous,just the beginning of his journey!

I used to be like you

I used to be like you. I used to make people wait and not realise that they also have lives, that they also have plans and goals. I only thought about what they meant to me and what importance that had. I never thought about how other people had places to go to, people to…

What you make of your failures

‘It’s not what you make of your successes, it’s what you make of your failures’. -mummy A few weeks ago I did an exam and failed it miserably. It was a horrible feeling, like how you feel when you’re heartbroken and your chest is tight. I went straight home trying to retain my tears on…

Islands

My thoughts are like islands.  What goes on there is unbelievable. It’s paradise. Sometimes the water hits hard against the rocks and the wind roars. After the storm blows over, it’s complete serenity. There’s a warm breeze and the blue ocean surrounding the islands barely moves. Everything is still and quiet. But these islands are…

P R A G U E

I went to Prague in mid August and I completely forgot to write about this great trip. It was full of wonderful surprises, from the medieval architecture to the hand-made cookie crafting shops, from the delicious cocktails to the rich food. Where I stayed: In Arpacay Backpackers Hostel in Praha 2, which  meant that I…
