The Colours Of Spring

Top~Zara/ Trousers~ Vintage/ Earrings~Forever 21/ Bindis~ Market

Hello my dears,

Another Bank holiday is upon us, how lovely to have an extra day to catch up with bits and bobs. These snaps were actually taken on the Easter bank holiday a few weeks back, so I thought I would try to sneak them into this bank holiday post instead. Although, I have just looked out of my window and the rain is absolutely pouring down, what a contrast to the sunny days just past. Oh well, Sunday's were made for being cosy and curious.

So, when my mum and I were driving back from the garden center a few weeks back, we saw this rapeseed field on the side of the road. The light that was bouncing off of the bright yellow petals was so magical that it was impossible not to take a few pictures. Also, with the opposing greying sky it was truly a moment immersed in the most beautiful of nature. It reminded me of a Depeche Mode album cover I have somewhere in my collection. We had a good sniff of the pollen and ran through the waist-high  stems. Anyway, I really enjoyed it as you can probably tell haha. 

I've just got back from a week in Marrakech, so expect a couple of big old posts about the trip and some good places to go if you fancy having a holiday there too.

Hope you have a wonderful bank holiday.

Lots of love always

Feeling 1970 in 2017

Glasses~H&M/ Blouse~Zara/ Skirt~H&M

Good evening lovelies,

I don't know about you but sometimes on sunny days, when the sky is the brightest of blues and the smell of warmth is in the air, it just makes me want to buy a campervan and travel the world. Listening to music and picking wild flowers to decorate my van with. A bit weird I know, but sometimes I can't help but want to travel back in time and have a bit of a hippy festival life and make log fires and braid my hair.
So that's what I did a couple of weeks ago, when my best friend from London came to stay. I dressed up as some sort of 1970s-suede and floral wearing- plaits woman. We even did some yoga and danced on the decking to some sweet old tracks. And I loved it hah. Sometimes I love nothing more than a good dress-up session and feeling like a time traveler for the day. 
Don't get me wrong, I love this life and everything in it, but on the odd occasion it's nice to see how the other half live- of sorts. As usual I stood in front of the nearest bush and took a couple of snaps to show for it. 

I am off to Marrakech in a little under two weeks and I cannot wait to see what Morocco has to offer. Please be prepared for some bumper posts on the colour and culture over there. I am half- tempted to take an empty suitcase to fill with market goods, foods and fabrics. 

I hope you have all had a lovely week.

Lots of love always

Gingham In Heather

Beret~Accessorize/ Dress~ Asos/ Shoes~Primark

Hello again beauts,

Wow what an utterly wonderful Sunday it has been. It is so good to finally have some warm Spring sun and not have to layer up to go out for a walk. I don't know about you but it literally just lifts me up as soon as those rays hit my face.

So this morning I took a stroll around the beautiful gardens of Dartington, I have been there a few times in the last few weeks and everytime I go there it seems more things have sprung from the ground. The colours of fallen Magnolia petals cover the grass in pastel shades and daffodils, tulips and forget-me-nots jazz up the flower beds. Falling into a bush of heather and being soaking wet with dew afterwards was my highlight.
 Spring really is a special time of year.

I got this little gingham number from Asos a few weeks ago, I love the little puff sleeves and the old-fashioned cloth like material. I have got the feeling that I will be wearing it to death over the coming months.

This Summer I am really hoping to get a little job working outside, whilst I do like working in the pharmacy I feel like I don't want to be cooped up all day and would rather make less money doing something I really enjoy. Maybe that is just the sun going to my head, but it is definitely a thought that has me excited and up at night. Then who knows, maybe my dream of spending hours amongst flowers daily will become true. 

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and are enjoying the first few days of April and what it has to offer.

Lots of love always

Winter Post In Spring

Hey loves,
I cannot believe I haven't posted anything since the beginning of the year, these last few months have just flown by. I thought I would pop a few pics up that I didn't get the chance to do before.
This was a day I felt like dressing like a murder mystery character. In my favourite pink fur coat and matching beret. There is a beautiful homeware place near me in Devon called Nkuku- it sells the most amazing old-fashioned school desks and wood carvings, Sometimes it is nice to just go and sit in one of the warehouses and pretend to go back in time. SO that's what I did, all dressed up as someone from a Cluedo game. Haha.

Anyway I just wanted to do a short little post, just to pop in before the Spring ones. I am so happy that all the fresh new flowers and little lambs have popped their heads up and the days in the countryside become even more lovely when in bloom.

I hope you are all okay and sorry again for my extended absence. More posts to come very soon.

Lots of Love always
