Singing a song about the girl singing with me... never gets old.
Had a great time last night at the @oakmosscollective house show! It was a pleasure! Thank you for having me 😊
Check out @stuartyoungmusic and @_timweaverpa_ 🤘🏼
So @the_dragonfruit and I saw this mural and we were like “should we pull over? Oh I don’t know...there’s a big van in front of it.” then the van drove away and we pulled into an open parking spot and stood in the road to take these photos while trying not to die. It was great. 😂 #worthit
Also just FYI @katyperry is coming to LA Nov. 7th and 8th and I just found out thanks to @goldstarevents_!

| FAVOURITES | Last day of #freeupmyinsta and my favourite(s) are my family ♡
I love these two so very much... and this photo because it was taken without us knowing and those are the best ones. It's blurry & fuzzy and you can see the waistband of my leggings through my dress which ever so kindly does not hide my #postpartum body, but that Is ok as it's a work-in-progress. .
Life is better in the woods and hiking to waterfalls and slowing down for a bit and getting away from the chaos of day to day life. It's also a lot better with family and dear friends and a couple glasses of wine too. There's no bad days up north! I wish we could have a whole week up here to relax.🌲
Thanks to all the lovely ladies who came out for today's modern calligraphy + Floral arranging workshop with @fleurinc!! Thank you @virtuecider for the delicious cider beer! I encourage all to take time out of their busy schedules and try something new, you may not pick it up right away or even like it but the people you meet and experiences you may gain will pay dividends!
Fall is the time of baked goods and hot coffee all day 🤗 this was my first attempt at an apple galette and I'm going to be doing my best to not keep the whole thing for myself! #seriouslythough#ihaveasweettooth
Today I’m thankful for big sunglasses, messy buns, caffeine and leftovers. •
I’m a total mess... unlike every other day, when I have life perfectly together in neat little color coordinated boxes. Ha! Aren’t we all just varying degrees of messiness day in and day out? •
If Jesus “loves this hot mess”, shouldn’t we love ourselves as well... in all the messiness? •
So here’s to grace, messy love, and spaghetti. 😘
The beginning stages of something new! For now I’m referring to it as the “Narrow Series.” A line of tables for small living spaces. This lil guy will be making his debut at West Elm in Charlotte on Nov 3rd. Mark your calendars and come out to see us! :) #rswdco @westelmcharlotte #mywestelm
Little monkey is sick (again) and for the first time in a long time that means a day off rather than a full day for me! Between the two of us, our schedules get tossed every few weeks 🙈#endoprobs for me, persistent cough for him.
It's hard to imagine a world without sickness and pain. But it's definitely something I'm most excited for about heaven!!
Which stories do you recommend for Halloween? This can include both books and films 🦇 I love gothic literature, my favourites being Wuthering Heights, Dracula & The Picture of Dorian Grey ♥
Pictured above are the iconic shelves of Daunt Books in Marylebone. I feel blessed to live in a city that's filled with so many beautiful book shops 🌙
JUST BECAUSE // Yesterday @melissaweldonuk posted a photo #justbecause the lighting was good and she was feeling herself.
I've sat here wondering if I should post this photo for THREE DAYS. Can you imagine? All the while thinking, "I just posted a photo of myself the other day. I don't want to post too many for anyone to think I'm conceited."
On second (third, fourth and fifth) thoughts, BULL CRAP TO THAT. I can be so quick to run with negatvie thoughts, but when positivity crops up, I want to squash it, hide it, and overthink it?!
Not everyday self-deprecating typical British girl, sometimes [whistles to call attention to self]: "YES I POSTED TWO PHOTOS OF MYSELF IN A WEEK, #JUSTBECAUSE I THINK I LOOK DAMN GOOD."
Also, the #WeekendsCollected edit is now up on my stories!
It's funny how that quick snap of a camera can show my child in a momentary peaceful light, but truth be told straight after this he face planted the sand (on purpose) and tried to run straight into the sea all whilst sporting a rather runny nose. He's a true maniac. Who am i actually kidding? I think the tongue gives it away! #behindthescenes#hesactuallylickinghissnotaway
INSTAGRAM vs. REALITY
There’s a new post on my blog talking about just that. Life behind the ‘gram isn’t always as glossy as the feed may portray and I want to encourage people to share the realities behind their insta-worthy shots. My reality today: I stood up my date with my text books (I tried to do the whole ‘it’s not you, it’s me’ but they seemed pretty sad. I would be too if I was a 1015 word book on EU Law that is soon to be redundant) and bashed out the above blog post. I placed a very dreamy (loo roll, hoisin sauce, bubble bath, all the exciting things in life) Ocado order which, in a moment that I can only describe as complete and utter madness, I arranged for 05:30 delivery. FIVE THIRTY AM ON A MONDAY MORNING. For the sake of that driver all I can say is I hope there’s no substitutions because ya gal is not a morning person. Then I cooked up a v delicious, if I do say so myself, bacon, pea and mint pasta dish for myself and @charlotte_pickles and we devoured it in all it’s creamy, lemony, garlicky goodness. I’m sneezing like a long term coke abuser and my skin has got spots that rival Everest so I’m treating myself to a full on at home facial with a v swanky facial steamer and electric cleansing brush that Panasonic very kindly sent me to test out. After glamorously attacking my black heads I’m going to finish off my treatment at Spa Sandland with a hot bath, a face mask, a glass of vino and Gilmore Girls before hitting the hay ready for my very early morning visitor (I’ll forgive him, he has my groceries). 💆🏼💫 #instareality
