Unlock the power of plants.

Even pre-pandemic, I spent a lot of time indoors. Working from home as a freelancer can all too easily mean your daily commute is from bed to desk to sofa and back again, without leaving the house for days on end. In fact, as a predominantly urban dwelling population, it has been estimated that Brits spend an incredible 90 percent of our time indoors – a statistic that has only been exacerbated over the past few years through numerous national lockdowns

New surrounds.

They say a change is as good as a rest, and while I wouldn’t go quite so far as to say my new home office brings me as much joy as, say, a two week Caribbean vacation might have, I’m going to say it’s pretty close. Ok, maybe not pretty close, but close enough..!I shared many of these photos of my new office over on Instagram recently, as paid of a brand collaboration with home organisation extraordinaires Tylko (who I

Skincare matters.

As I enter the final year of my third decade, with the big 4-0 looming on the horizon, my appreciation for – and experimentation with – skincare is dramatically evolving. I spent my teens, twenties and early thirties with only one consideration when it came to my skincare routine: will this product help curb my break-outs, or exacerbate them? When you’ve had terribly spot-prone skin for more than half your life, the relief felt when finally transitioning out of that phase

Liberty Ocean.

Long-term readers will remember that not long after I moved up to Manchester (five years ago now!), I swapped my old clunky office chair for a sleek – and incredibly aesthetically pleasing – Liberty task chair from Humanscale. I’ve always believed that investing in a high quality ergonomic chair is an absolute must if you work from home, and its safe to say that being completely housebound throughout the pandemic has only strengthened my love and appreciation for my custom

A new look for Autumn.

The transition between seasons is often when I feel most inspired to make changes within my home. I can’t quite believe it but we’ve been in our ‘new place’ for a year now, having moved in late September 2020. It feels both like yesterday and a lifetime ago, as can often be the way. Having spent a full twelve months – and all four seasons – getting to know the quirks of our home and how best to inhabit it. I’ve

Style evolution.

Style, or rather, my recent lack of style, has been at the forefront of my mind a lot lately. A year spent indoors, socialising only with my boyfriend, his sister (with whom we were a support bubble), and virtually over Zoom, has meant the attention I pay to what I wear each day has dwindled exponentially. Loungewear has naturally formed a big part of my day-to-day uniform but, in the early months of this year, remaining in my pyjamas from
