Roshambo Rock // Free People

As I'm going to Glastonbury next week I've been trawling the internet for outfit ideas - the best for that boho-festival vibe is Free People.  Their May lookbook entitled Roshambo:Rock has everything you would need to look glam at Glastonbury.  After looking through not only am I extra excited to go to the most magical festival in Britain, but I'm really looking forward to this (sort of) holiday.

Check out the video that accompanies the lookbook and tell me you don't want to go abroad!

Hipstamatic diaries

Yay for summer!  It's this time of year Sheffield becomes it's greenest, so we take every opportunity to soak it all in whilst we can.  I also took this opportunity to take up one of my birthday goals and use my camera app - in particular the 'Hipstamatic' app.

Hipstamatic is definitely the app I've invested the most money in - I get pretty excited when they release new lenses and covers, but hardly ever get use out of it... what's that about?  Well I'm changing that, starting here.  Hello new feature!

Posing (with friends)


This posing malarky isn't getting any easier you know.  I still feel a bit silly asking Floyd to take my picture... I really want to get over this personal barrier, so I'm sticking with it.  I had a little help this time from my friend Dave.  He was pretty keen to get involved and made it a lot more fun!

As you can see the sun decided to show it's face.  It's feeling more like summer here in Sheffield.  I'm enjoying walking to work without a coat, turning my electric blanket off, eating ice-lollies and having salads for dinner.  I'm counting down the days until Glastonbury (2 weeks!!) - so excited, I can't even begin to tell you how much.  It's my first time, so I'm going with open eyes ready to take it all in.  Are you going to any festivals this summer?

The simple things... Jam on toast

The simple things in life really are the best.  Fresh white bread, Yorkshire tea in a porcelain cup, real butter melted on hot toast and a thin layer of hedgerow jam - you can't get better sometimes.

Taking pleasure in the small things makes me happy.  What simple things are you enjoying at the moment?

Lately on instagram

1. Picking out nail varnishes.
2. Hello.
3. Mushrooms growing in a house plant!
4. Another attempt at nail art.
5. Not quite warm enough for bare legs.

It's warming up over here and with the heat comes exposed flesh.  Therefore I've been upping my skincare routine, trying to catch as much sun as possible, moisturising like crazy and squeezing in some exercise when I can (and when I remember).  I love summer, and here in England it can become a bit of an obsession with the weather and whether we'll actually get a summer!  Each warm day is a blessing in my books.

Is it warm where you are?

Winkii hats

Recently two new cousins arrived in the world, so I crocheted them a pair of winkii hats to keep their little heads warm.  I can't wait to meet them.
