I am currently in the process of moving out. This is a Big Deal for me.

I have never lived alone, or even away from my family. If my parents hadn’t upped and left the country for warmer climes a few years ago, I’d probably still live with them. As it is, I live with my sister. I LOVE living with my sister- she’s my best friend and an amazing cook, it’s kind of a no-brainer. However, now that I am getting *ahem* older, I have decided that I should at least try and go it alone for a bit (Spoiler alert-this is less dramatic than it sounds, I am moving 10 minutes down the road). I am simultaneously excited and terrified. (What will I eat?!)

Unfortunately all this moving has put a serious spanner in my blogging! Not for want of inspiration, but simply because every time I sit down to blog I find myself thinking “this time would be better spent researching integrated washer dryers” and I somehow distract myself from the task at hand, despite the fact that researching integrated washer dryers is exactly as boring as it sounds. But I miss blogging! And my sister and boyfriend may kill me if I don’t manage to find at least 5 minutes a day where I’m not thinking/talking/googling/monologuing incessantly/all of the above about cabinets. Seriously, it’s that bad. I have little dancing household appliances can-canning across my brain ALL DAY. It’s like Fantasia with furniture.

So, I’m going to try and blog a bit more, as I’m not quite ready to relinquish my grip on sanity just yet.

That said, if this blog takes a turn away from from fashion and towards decor, go easy on me – I’m only human!

Hope everyone’s having a good week, and Happy Autumn! 🙂

Basil alone

– Little basil pot decoration, they were hanging all over town! So sweet 😀

On display in my room:






Floral skirt (left):  Tally Weijl

Polka dot black tee (right): Ruly’s

Scarves: Suite Blanco


Turns out Lisbon has some really cute shops! I especially enjoyed Suite Blanco and Ruly’s. Tally Weijl was fun too, in a way-too-young-for-me-but-I-so-don’t-care kind of way ;-p


I tried on this poncho from Ruly’s as a joke and it turned out to be my favourite thing! I’m really looking forward to wearing it.

Floral Bershka jacket

Floral jacket: Bershka


Turquoise jewellery etc


Gold necklace: Bershka

Turquoise necklace & bracelet: Suite Blanco

Pom pom earrings & keyring: Suite Blanco. I also bought a doughnut necklace and some sweetie hair ties for my nieces there 🙂

They also had some adorable wicker bags, but I restrained myself! (They wouldn’t fit in my suitcase… 😦  )

The gold word stud earrings are from Tally Weijl, there are 9 which I thought was a weird number for a pack of earrings. Also the words are things like  “yeah”, “oh”, “ok”, “good” etc. and one of them is “hoot”, which also struck me as an odd choice!

The “mermaid tears” necklace is also from Tally Weijl and just made me laugh so much I had to buy it. Everything was super cheap too!

Cardi, necklace, glasses


I bought this teal cardi from Massimo Dutti. I know it exists in England, but for some reason I always thought it was mega-expensive so I’ve never been in. It’s not cheap but it’s Zara style prices, so I was pleasantly surprised.

Speaking of Zara, the faux Chanel headphones necklace is from there.


The sunglasses (which make me look like a big bug!) are from Tally Weijl.

Me sunnies

My Suite Blanco scarves, which I’m obsessed with:

Ice cream scarf


Ice creeeeeeaaaam!

Pineapple scarf

  How cute are the pineapples?

All that (and a lot of jam/cherry liqueur/fridge magnets!) and I somehow managed not to burst my sister’s suitcase (which was already full when I set off for Lisbon!) – go me!!!

Have a great weekend everyone! 😀
