Friday: The Perfect Pair Of Cosy Socks

Ok so this is a really random post but how beautifully soft and cosy do these socks look? I really want to buy them. The second image socks are from Toast! I am still trying to find out where the first ones are from.

How is winter treating you?

Happy Friday

Hes Just Not That Into You- Quote.

'Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, Every story we're told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending we don't learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don't, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. 

And maybe a happy ending doesn't include a guy, maybe... it's you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is... just... moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope. 

-Gigi, Hes Just Not That Into You

Autumnal Thoughts.





Autumn (or fall) is a truly beautiful season. Whether its walking over the crunchy auburn leaves scattered across the floor, huddling in a coat and stepping out of the way of shiny conkers. Or seeing squirrels scatter up the trees as you pass, while the leaves cascade down, Autumn is always a joy to behold.

What is your favourite thing about Autumn?


What I love Wednesday

Hi, so this is just a little post to show you what i am loving (and what you may love too!) on today, this fabulous Wednesday! Hope you enjoy and tell me what you are loving too:

1. Cath Kidston Folk Flower Bag, I love the print and the way it looks like a satchel!


2. Jessie Js new single-  Silver Lining Crazy Bout You.  Jessie is an amazing singer from the UK and she has the best voice ever! I love this song and the video:

3. Jojo Moyes Romantic  Novels, she writes such great books, have a read of her very clever love stories that often interweave the past and present. They will make you cry though!

Happy Wednesday all!

Rain, Unemployment and Motivation.


Dear readers,

I am happy so many of you have come and visited my blog in the last day. It is so nice to make new blog friends and share ideas with you. One of the reasons I started writing again is because I left my job last week. I wasn't enjoying it and so I left but I am currently unemployed and job hunting, so I have a lot of time to carry on writing my blog. I hope when I do start work I can continue updating too.

Also, here in London its just so rainy. This shouldnt be a surprise seeing as London rains a lot right? But it can make you tired and sap your motivation.


So a few questions on this drizzly day. How do you motivate yourself? Are any of you unemployed also?

Lots of love!

Amelie and Cable Knit Jumpers...


A few things I am loving on this Autumnal Monday. I have often talked of my love of the film 'Amelie' or if you want its full title- Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain (The Fabulous Destiny of Amelie Poulain). 

Amelie is about a woman who finds happiness through doing good things for others and falling in love. At first she is quirky and a little bit of a loner, but she makes friends and falls in love. It is a beautiful very creative and artsy film that I love. I can't quite believe it is nearly 12 years old!

Some pictures of the film for you:






Amelie is just a beautiful and heart warming film set in whimsical Paris. The way it is shot is wonderful, everyone watch it. :)

I am also loving cable knit jumpers. This winter I have bought a long purple cable knit one which I am wearing as I write this post. Comfy yet stylish. The picture is similar to the one I have except mine is a jumper cardigan!


Happy Monday!
