Inspired By Lately…


I had a request a few times to do a series of posts of things that are inspiring me lately and things that I have been up to which make me smile. I thought it would be a good idea as well so I have been making sure that I take snaps of the things that are making me happy at the moment. Some are from physical items, where as others are just passing moments. I hope you enjoy these few photos!

Above is a beautiful giraffe print shirt in black and white with fuchsia pink trim from Lavish Alice. I had intentions of wearing it for an outfit post last week, but it’s been too cold and wet. It always makes me smile each time I look at it though! You will see it on me this week!


It was amazing to actually see the sky blue and the sun shining on a walk through the park with my boyfriend. It’s been raining constantly, so it made me smile.


I hadn’t eaten at Wagamama’s in ages and my boyfriend and I went there for lunch on Saturday, it’s definitely one of my favourite lunches!


My beautiful Nintendo 3DS in Hot Pink which is exclusive to Japan only. I got this as a gift from my boyfriend for Christmas and I play Animal Crossing New Leaf every night before bed!


Comfortable jeans + a parka coat + high tops is one of my favourite casual combinations that I wear at the moment. It keeps me warm and I love the way it looks.


These lights in the tree in the middle of town looked amazing when the sun went down. Right above the little fruit and vegetable market.

I reached over 10,000 followers on both Twitter and on Instagram, so I thought it would be good to write a little thank you note with my new stationary that I got from Viking. I love writing things down, creating things out of paper clips and rubber bands, doodling with coloured pens etc, it’s always fun for me!


I love this pink sippy cup that I bought from Urban Outfitters about 6 weeks ago. I love unicorns as you know, so I’ve been using it at night for taking water to bed with me. It’s really sturdy and strong, as well as adorable! Lily likes it too as you can see! You can buy it online here.


This fairy light jumper that I got from Topshop before Christmas was supposed to be part of a pyjama set, but I have been falling in love with it more and more each day and whenever I see it, it makes me smile, so I tend to wear it a lot, even outside.


I love birds, especially seagulls, so when I looked up in the sky to see them all flying out towards the lake for the night, I couldn’t resist taking a photo of them.
