Standing desk ikea hack

Thursday, 4 May 2017

I had the joy of spending the day with my friend Caz from Lovely Cosmetics recently, while we hunted cute things for my home and her new studio. I captured a little bit of it on video and captured the set up of our super cheap new standing desk.
Hit play and take a peek at what we got up to. Thanks for stopping by!

Toy hunting in Manchester with the Geek Squad.

Thursday, 20 April 2017

Yesterday I had the most magical opportunity to hang out with three women who not only love a dork out as much as I do but also spend a lot of their free time hunting cuteness to fill their shelves at home with and honestly, it was just the most loveliest of days and I really didn't want it to end.
We spent the entirety of the day having a little plod around the Northern Quarter in Manchester, the day actually flew by far too quickly and we didn't end up getting round everywhere but I think that just gives us another excuse to get together and buy more toys.
I managed to capture a little bit on video but actually got far too caught up in the day to film it all but hopefully you can get a little bit of a feel for our day and a peek at what cuties we did find, I also included my Instagram stories from the day because their were a few cute moments that were well worth a share. Enjoy lovelies!

In Between Seasons

Friday, 10 March 2017

I love this time of year, when you never know what your going to wake up to weather wise. I know this isn't something a lot of people love but honestly I just adore all seasons for lots of different reasons. What I love most though, is being able to mix seasonal clothing. I especially love wearing big thick tights with everything. EVERYTHING!!
If you know anything about me at all, I know you will know how much I love all things colourful and this outfit is just that. I discovered Nobody's Child this week (why am I just finding you?!) and when I saw this top, I haven't hit the buy button so quickly in a while and for the grand total of £4.20 (hello sale!), can you blame me?!
I was a little bit worried about it being a crop top and sizes, you never know how things are going to fit when you're first buying from a company you haven't used before but actually their sizing (at least on top) is pretty perfect and it's just the right length to for all my high waisted bottoms. Yay! 

In Colourful Company Nottingham

Wednesday, 8 March 2017

We had our first In Colourful Company walk of 2017 and it was in the altogether lovely city of Nottingham. Our hosts this time round were Katie, Jess and Karen and honestly, I couldn't be any more blown away by the amount of love and thought that went into the day. 
The whole day itself felt like a bit of a dream and feels a million years ago, even though it was only just a few short days ago. We chased colour, ate doughnuts, I had a HUGE vegan burger and I got to spend the day with a group of women who are all just so truly inspirational, kind and generous. 
I feel so incredibly lucky to be a part of such a kind, unique community, let alone be the founder of it. 
I did manage to get a little more on film then usual, which was lovely. So if you want to see a bit of what we got up to, watch the video below. Also, if you want to get involved with In Colourful Company, feel free to join our Facebook group or give me a shout on Instagram. We also have a #InColourfulCompany where you can have a nosey at lots of photos and boomerangs from everyone involved.

The Cutie Life

I recently discovered The Cutie Life on YouTube and pretty much fell in love instantly. The channel is run by Hilary and she shares her adventures, unboxings and of course all the cuteness in her life. Honestly it's a total dream, go check it out. 
This morning when I was looking for a bit of inspiration for my warm up sketch, my mind drifted to her and I ended up illustrating her adorable self. It ended up so cute, I thought it was worth a share.
