3 // attempts Jasper took at squeezing past me to get into the car footwell. Just to sit in it.

10 // beautifully scented roses, that after a solid week are still looking luscious.

8 // harvests of berries from the garden! The strawberry and raspberry plants have gone rampant and taken over this year and I can't say I'm not pleased.

3700 // the number of followers on Instagram I just seem perpetually stuck at these days weeks :| They're driving me a little loopy with their shadowbanning etc, that I'm giving up caring. Temporarily at least ;)

12+ // minutes deciding which Anthropologie earrings to purchase. That shop is a minefield for my bank balance.

5 // calls between F and I this morning because he's in Cardiff and we're soppy old souls like that.

6:50 // the time our flight leaves for Croatia. I know I'll be dreading waking up at the crack of dawn that morning!

38 // the number of tabs I currently have open, predominantly blog posts on Croatia, subsidiary collection of ASOS and Hobbs..

8249 // current count on my Camera Roll, which I think ought to spark an iPhone clearout.

3 // pairs of 'necessary' summer footwear sent to F via iPhone for purchasing consideration.

66 // percentage of said footwear he liked enough to consent to purchasing. One of the pairs bore embroidered fruit which he said was a 'no no' ha.

100 // percentage of aforementioned footwear purchased regardless ;)


How did your weekend go? I hope it was a lovely one!

I'm asked many a time about my Instagram.

How do I go about curating my feed, what's my process, and how do I edit my photos? In all honesty, my approach is pared back and simple, and I stick to the same few filters and editing tools that I've used for the past year or so. Having a cohesive and attractive feed is possibly the biggest thing that draws me to a new Instagram account so today I'm sharing seven of my favourite tips for a strong Instagram aesthetic.

Even with the recent showers in the UK, I'm in a summery mood lately - as you can probably tell from the spate of sun-loving posts lately. I actually quite enjoy the rain when it's warm and you can smell the earth and grass. I recently spoke about my summer wardrobe essentials, what skincare minis to take on holiday with you, and a bumper SPF edit, so today I thought I'd add to the growing collection with my travel beauty and makeup essentials.

Ask any beauty expert for their one tip that all women can adhere to to improve their skin, and 9 times out of 10 you'll hear SPF. Sunscreen is one of the most important steps in my routine year round, but especially in summer. Gone are the days where we had to put up with heavy, sticky creams that turned our faces white, so today I'm sharing the SPF innovations that are available these days, including a more expensive, and more affordable option - so there's no excuse not to be protected!

I wish I could take my whole beauty cabinet away with me sometimes. I succumb to overpacking, and that includes beauty products.

I'm currently planning what to take with me for our trip next month so thought I would share 5 of my favourite travel skincare kits with you today. Hope you enjoy!

This recipe essentially came about because I wanted to show off the gorgeously dainty thyme flowers that have sprouted in our garden. I did toy with the idea of a lemon and thyme cake but many of my recent recipes have been sweet (not that I'm complaining obviously!) and I've been really coveting goats cheese, with it's lemony tang, especially with beetroot. Hope you enjoy!
