I've moved

It's now official - I have a new location in the blogosphere...

Thank you for your interest and support in this, my first blog.  I hope to see you over on "Head in the Clouds" - my new online space where I will continue to share bits n pieces of my life, loves and inspiration (but hopefully in a more cohesive way).

Come join me here.

Ok, bye. Lois x

Checking in

Hello... I realise it's been a while, but I just thought I should check in and let you know that the reason things have slowed right down here is because I'm working on a new blog.   Yep, I've decided after much deliberation that I'm going to start fresh and focus on a new blog that delivers what I'm trying to achieve, or is more like the blog I picture in my head when I think up ideas and such.

The decision came to me after realising that I have been working on this blog for a year and it still has a long way to go before it becomes what I have been visualising.  Of course I could re-vamp this one, but I think it would be better for my focus to start afresh.

I'm really excited about this new blog!  I hope you will come along with me to my new online home when the time comes.  In the meantime, I'll keep you posted. :)

Hello people!  Today it has been hot hot hot in Sheffield - Autumn it seems has disappeared and Summer is back in full swing!  The parks are full of people having BBQ's and playing ball games.  Me and Floyd has our tea outside (which we didn't think would happen again this year). Super!

Anyways, I'm back here today with more items for my wishlist.  Check them out...

These pots are amazing!  They remind me of a character from 'Button Moon'.

I really love this photo-album from Paperchase.  I might have to add it to my Xmas list.

I'm amazed by this beautiful pop-up book called 'little tree' - found here.

Loving this simple yet classic skirt from Zara.

Also in love with this classic looking skirt from Spotted Moth - it's called the 'Annie Hall', one of my all time favourite films!

These pretty little Chelsea boots would go perfectly.

This print featuring pugs is just awesome - I must have it for our flat!

So the weekend begins... I have many plans and jobs to be getting on with.  Lets hope a hangover doesn't get in the way of any of them eh?

I've managed to cross another thing off my list of things to do before my next birthday... try macaroons!


How was your Wednesday?  My internet was playing up yesterday, so I didn't manage to post Tuesday's tune - so I'll save it for next week.  Today has been really hot!  I can't believe how warm it is for the end of September - it's great! Hopefully it'll stay this way for the weekend as well.

Cheerio for now, Lois xx

One year

Today I am celebrating my one year blog anniversary.  Yep, it was one year ago today that I said hello to the world and wrote this post and since then I have learned a lot about the online community... although I still have a long way to go before I can say I know what I'm doing!  It's fun to read through some of my old posts and goals with hindsight... this one about how much I wanted a pug - and now I have Betty!  Dream come true.

Or this one about when we had a snow day... time off work to play?  We were all children again.

January was when I started a few of my regular features such as the wishlist, inspired posts and the Sunday walk (which I need to do another of soon).  I also wrote this short but fun post about my friends cat.

February was my birthday and when I made my list (above).  My progress is ok - I've done about 18 (well started at least).  I'll post an update soon.

More features were born such as Home Envy and Girl Crush...

I still have a lot of ideas for this blog.  I want to post more things about my everyday life and my dreams and plans for my online shop.  I want to make more of an effort with my photography, and I'm going to make a new blog banner.  I want to post more pictures of my home, my city and myself.  I'm going to be brave and take more self-portraits.  This is all a learning process for me and I use this platform to experiment, so just as a forewarning - not everything will work!

There, now I've said it I've got to do it.

I can't believe it... I was reading this post earlier on where it talks about someone celebrating their one-year blog anniversary, so I thought I'd check to see when my first post was on this blog and guess what - it's tomorrow!!  Completely by chance I have come across this bit of information, and now I don't know what to do with it.

I might hold some sort of give away, but it will be a bit of a last minute thing.  Has anyone any other suggestions?  All ideas are welcome :)

Inspired: Audrey Kawasaki

 I discovered Audrey Kawasaki a few years ago when a friend of mine showed me some of her stuff online - I have loved her art ever since.  She has a definite mood to her work, and although she explores dark themes her pieces remain soft and feminine.

You can find more of her stuff on her website.

I hope your Wednesday has been fine.  The dark nights are definitely setting in and I'm feeling more and more wintery as the days pass by.  Time to start wrapping up in warm knits (or crochets) and blankets - I love blankets!

Cheerio :)
