Life Lately | Bad juju


[dropcap]G[/dropcap]uys. There is some bad juju floating around at the moment. I am legitimately going to buy a few white sage smudge sticks to clear the air at this point. Last week, my home was burgled. A few items were taken including the oven mitt. AN OVEN MITT. The clappy kind that serves no other useful purpose apart from pulling hot trays out of the oven. AND THEN, my office building falls victim to a bungled burglary. The guy was caught hanging half in and out the window, off his face. He’s now in police custody and I have spent the morning making cups of tea for the police officers outside. See what I mean? BAD JUJU VIBES.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator border_width=”2″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”18025″ img_size=”1000×1500″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1516891754913{padding-top: 200px !important;padding-right: 40px !important;padding-bottom: 220px !important;padding-left: 40px !important;background-color: #f8f3f0 !important;}”]

The most beautiful and gentle kitty in the world, DD, made a reappearance at work last week. I got my hour of snuggles with her. She moves so slowly and carefully, like a baby sloth. She was passed around like a fluffy little loaf from person to person, because she is just the sweetest fluffy fluffikins ever.

As a Scottish Fold, she has the dinkiest little ears. I love my silly, furry angel babies at home but sometimes I think how lovely it would be to have a cat that snuggles all day and doesn’t bring me any unwanted rodent gifts.

Oh, and Supa is a male modelling agency. It makes for fun people watching 😉

A friend of mine was in London for the day last week and we had a catch up dinner by the Royal Festival Hall. Afterwards we took a stroll along the South Bank – one of my favourite things to do- and it was especially nice seeing it through a visitor’s eyes. We stopped to listen to a busker’s beautiful voice, passed by the carousel, and watched the boats chug along the Thames. Oh, and of course sat below the London Eye at golden hour as Big Ben watched on across the river. It blows my mind that my friends from when I was a kid are still my friends today. Warm fuzzies!

Cooler temperatures today have made me save all of the knitwear and scarves online. I love Summer, through and through, but a cosy jumper in the cool air is pretty nice I will admit. And also, how mad it is that Autumn/Winter wear is creeping into the shops already? HOW FAST IS 2017 GOING?

Because I’m still obsessed with neutrals, I have this saved in my basket. I have two pretty decent vouchers from ASOS that I can’t bring myself to use just yet, but this chunky baby…this is going in (p.s I always size up for extra snuggliness)

I have a special spot for the Blogger’s Blog Awards. It’s grassroots, amongst our blogging peers, and the effort that Hayley puts in every year to pull it together is insane, plus it’s a ray of sunshine in the competitive world of blogging. And it’s that time of year again for nominations!

You can cast your vote here (scroll to the bottom to the Let’s Vote button)

In the spirit of the awards, nominate your favourite bloggers in as many or all the categories and if you feel like this snazzy place is worthy of a vote then I can’t thank you enough!

…I have a favour to ask!  What kind of content do you want to see more of on here? I have a few things I’d like to be more open on but when your husband’s mates and your dad read here, I can’t help but reign in on the vagina talk.

I’d love to chat more about my PCOS. I want to write more interiors content (once that matter of replacing my camera is sorted) Do you want more fashiony stuff? Because god knows my bank statement says ASOS an awful lot.

There are so many London blogs out there, but mostly I just want to chat your ear off. (I even talk to myself out loud, yeah I’m that person in your office) So yes! Sound off below!

  1. Hahaha I have the exact same “Save it for something reeeealllllly great” feeling whenever an ASOS voucher graces me with it’s presence. It almost makes my purchases more difficult because I don’t want to just waste it on those $5 earrings I need to make sure I get free shipping 😉
