This concrete wall and olive grove jumped out at me while I was in Portugal with @mad_about_the_house. We escaped the hotel and went on a jaunt to capture a taste of the local village life, narrowly escaping a flattening by drivers on our way 😅 The second in the #slowsoundsplaylist series is up on the blog today - serious grooves celebrating all that is summer with the tracks we’re playing on repeat. If you’ve got @spotify you can download and take it with you too). I’m also talking a little about what we’re up to whilst I take a break from the blog until September if you fancy a read? #curateanddisplay
Guess what we got up to last night...! 💉 It was my fifth donation, and Mr MM’s seventh. Easy to do, it helps saves lives, and you get squash and biscuits afterwards. What’s not to love? 🍪 Blood stocks are particularly low at the moment so they are desperate for donors - please consider it if you haven’t already! You never know, one day it might be you or a loved one who needs it. 🖤
Yesterday dad arrived for a few days so after tea & cake at The Organic Deli we spent the afternoon down at the botanical gardens wandering amongst the greenery and flowers, they’ve got some beautiful displays at the moment, I’ll share some in my Stories. Hydrangea in bloom, tall gladioli, wilting dahlia, the apples, pears and plums are ripening and the brassica are huge... we also had a giggle at the traffic jam building up under the Magdalen bridge as tourists attempted to punt down the river 😆 then it was off to the well known Turf Tavern for a pint in the sun 🌞 today there is actual rain forecast for later... probably a good thing as all the grass is turning yellow and our garden is looking incredibly thirsty! 🌿 Today’s plan includes a trip to Worcester College gardens (free entry, the Botanical Gardens are roughly £11 for two people but worth it), and a Potter round the book shops, the bookworm gene is strong 🐛 Thank you for helping me identify my plant included in yesterday’s Story, general consensus says that it’s a Croton 🌿 What are your plans for the weekend? We’re planning a trip to Bladon tomorrow to see Winston Churchill’s grave, my dad is quite the social history buff so that’s his main request for this trip 😆 • • • #oxfordwithcharis #igersoxford #verytandc #strangersinmyfeed

I'm busy as a bee. And enjoying it like the bee his this beautiful flower. Six weeks ago, right after finishing my master degree I began to build up a living as an self-employed copywriter to maintain my living while I'm becoming a health coach. All changes in my life lately are kind of crazy but so excited! I'm really grateful for this opportunity. . I dream of to work location-independent and especially country-independent. "Flying" around and be free like a bee.
I had been going to post a tutorial about how to make a grass wreath in late August. It is there on my content calendar for the 3rd week. And then the hot, hot weather came and the drought and suddenly the grass in the orchard looked very hay like. So I gathered armfuls of it and made a grass wreath which I am delighted with - all the different kinds of grass (there are 20 in total) give it a tapestry look. The instructions to make your own are in a blog post which you can get to by clicking the link in my bio. Or, if you want more - sign up to my newsletter and I will send you an ebook about wreath making later today. #growyourownflowers #modernrustic #thesimpleeveryday #botanicalpickmeup #myhomevibe #mystoryoflight #cornersofmyworld #cornersofmyhome #homeinspiration #liveauthentic #verilymoment #inspiredbynature #acornerofmyhome #gatheredstyle #abreathofwhitespace #underthefloralspell #inspiredbypetals #simpleandstill #nestandflourish #littlestoriesofmylife #simplenaturefinds #foundandforaged #slowfloralstyle #alovefornaturesbest #calmversation #thewildremedy #foundandforaged #thefloralseasons #momentsofmine #realinstahomes

A couple days ago I was cleaning out some old files when I found an essay I'd printed a few years ago, "Standing Alone at the Edge of the Void" by David Richo. It was a comforting read, much like a mini map, as I began this slow and frightening process of releasing inner structures that served as false tethers. I know it's no accident my personal journey of inner dismantling and beginning to connect with inner Self would occur in the voidesque landscape of New Mexico. The essay is a short read that's worth googling if you're feeling empty, lost or fearful. . . . . . . . #liveoutdoors #postthepeople #stayandwander #southwestisbest #newmexicotrue #nmoutside #gowildlyandslow #beautifulviews #postitfortheaesthetic #landofenchantment #abiquiu #nmgrammers #wildheart #seekinspirecreate #lookslikefilm #alovefornaturesbest #calmversation #exploretocreate #divine_deserts #girlswhohikenm #theoutbound #hikenewmexico #optoutside
its sometime past 2 AM / today once more, im treating this space like an online diary, as i did in the past. i feel like the wide-eyed 17 year old that started this account. with little expectations. without the slightest idea of scheduled posting times or algorithms. the young-writer who hesitated when she had to call herself just that, but shared more prose in three days than she does now in a month. / i still do very little to beat the 'shadow ban', whatever that is. and i don't help myself at all by going bouts at a time without posting. so for instagrammer standards, i don't pay as much attention to how + when i post as i maybe should? yet i still find the writing i share now to be less ingenuous than it once was. i filter a lot more, whether consciously or not, im not sure - but i'm aware of it now. this is perhaps a note to self to share more work. not to rid myself of the wall ive built around my writing, but to let a few pages pass through the gaps in the brick work. /🌙

After such a long, emotion-laden, post yesterday, I thought I'd go with a simple post today, one I'm sharing for no other reason than that I think this photo is pretty. :D ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thehappynow #pursuepretty #lovelysquares #momentsofmine #seekthesimplicity #photosinbetween #abmlifeissweet #darlingdaily #todayslovely #calmversation #pursueyourpassion #abmlittlethings #capturequiet #tinytinymoments #seethemagic #abmsummer #naturedomesticated #soulstroll #prettythings #simpleandstill #choosejoy
April in Park city
▫️ ...А когда откроется дверь и я выскочу на лестницу, то вдруг обнаружу, что там внизу начинается улица, и не намозолившая глаза уже до омерзения вереница знакомых домов, не отель напротив, а улица - дикая живая аллея, готовая в любой миг ринуться на меня то ли магнолией, то ли ещё чем, полная лиц, которые оживают, едва я бросаю на них взгляд, когда продираюсь ещё на шаг вперёд, упорно локтями, ресницами, ногтями прокладывая себе дорогу сквозь массу стеклянного кирпича, и кадр за кадром я прокручиваю свою жизнь и шаг за шагом приближаюсь к газетному киоску на углу, чтобы купить газету (с). . . . #underthefloralspell #ihavethisthingwithflowers #dsfloral #botanicaldaydreams #daydreaming #beautyyouseek #calmversation #myquietbeauty #capturequiet #curated_nature #persuepretty #postfortheaesthetic #petals_perfection #poeticsoul #goldenlight #collectingmoments #simpleandstill #seeingthepretty #verilymoment #beautifulmatters #darlingmoment #daysofsmallthings #dailypoetry #heart_imprint #heitermoments #nature_shooters #momentsofmine #magic_marvels #mylove

When you unexpectedly end up on a beach with cool, crystal-clear water and it’s a hot day, you don’t let a little thing like no bathing suit stop you, right? At least I don’t! Confession: I have a fear of open water. I don’t like not knowing what could be lurking underneath. But the clear water of Lake Ontario at North Beach called to me, so I didn’t hesitate to roll up my pant legs and wade in. Once I was in the water, I didn’t want to leave! Suddenly wishing I lived closer to beach... *sigh* When’s the last time you went to the beach? #ramblingdaydreamer

For the past year I've been carefully cultivating the lavender that grows along the path to our front door and I think it's paid off! These are just the bits that were really overhanging the path (and getting tangled up in the wheels of the buggy 😬). I left the rest of it for the bumble bees since they seem to be enjoying it so much. This lavender is now dried and ready to be used in some craft projects I've got planned for the autumn - right now I'm working on a vid for IGTV so should be able to share my step-by-step guide to the harvesting and drying process soon 😊

Marzyłam, że te wakacje na wsi będą pełne słońca, spacerów i zdjęć... Że uchwycę magiczne chwile, kiedy zachodzące słońce łaskocze ciepłym światłem liście i kwiaty... Że będziemy chodzić bezdrożami, wśród traw i pól, że będzie tak po prostu, jak zawsze latem, tu ... . . Czy to się spełniło? Trochę tak, troche nie. Lubię wracać do tych zdjęć w zbożu, bo wtedy właśnie lipiec nas cudownie rozpieszczał. . .

Following our recent hallway makeover (soon on the blog), I hung this extra large "THE WAY I AM" fine art print on our entrance wall using once again @commandBrand products. They have lots of hanging products but my fav are these picture hanging strips which are super easy to use and can hold frames up to 7.2 kg!! If you fancy hanging your favourite picture frames & creating a beautiful gallery wall without drilling into your walls and damaging them, SWIPE LEFT and head to the blog to read my latest post #donodamage #donodamageuk [ad] Maintenant que le relooking de notre couloir est fini (à lire bientôt sur le blog), j'ai accroché ce large tirage photographique "THE WAY I AM" dans notre entrée en utilisant encore les produits de @commandbrand Ils ont plein de produits géniaux pour accrocher vos cadres mais mon préféré reste la languette pour accrochage de tableau qui est super facile d'utilisation et peut soutenir un tableau jusqu'à 7.2kg Si cela vous dit de découvrir comment vous pouvez accrocher vos tableaux préférés sans avoir à sortir la perceuse et endommager vos murs, faites glisser vers la gauche et lisez mon dernier article sur le blog (lien ds mes stories) #AccrocherDécorerSansAbîmer
I came back from holiday to find the gooseberries ready. And whilst picking them yesterday I had one of those post-holiday meaning of life type epiphanies which only seem to come after a couple of weeks off and whilst ensconced in my veg patch communing with the vegetables. Clarity descends in the allotment, I find. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here's what I realised amongst the gooseberries (and yes, it will sound trite but sod it, it was news to me so I'm wondering if it's news to anyone else or if I alone am quietly going self-help saccharine soft): ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When it comes down to it, when you get to the pearly gates (or whatever you believe, I don't, but you get my drift), what so-called success you have or haven't had is utterly irrelevant. Book deals (or lack of!), Instagram followers, how in demand you are, the length of your To Do lists - all the usual trappings of apparent success - count for nothing. The point, of there is a point at all, is not to succeed at life, but to live it well. And that’s not always the same thing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (What? I did warn you it would be trite.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, post The Gooseberry Harvest Epiphany (as it shall hence forth be known), my mantra will be to create a life that I can say was well lived. One in which I read, grow, cook, write for the sheer pleasure of it rather than with success (and by definition therefore, failure) in mind. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm currently trying to engineer a way to bottle this sentiment for when the feeling inevitably ebbs and life, lists and inboxes cloud my judgement. What's in your bottle and did you find it whilst picking gooseberries too? No? Just me then? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #seekthesimplicity #theartofslowliving #livethesimplethings #simplethings #verilymoments #aquietlife #livethelittlethings #thehappynow #folkandstory #slowdownwithstills #theinstaretreat #TILspring #creativebiz #mycreativebiz #creativepreneur #calmversation #creativelifehappylife #thenativecreative #therisingtidesociety #seekinspirecreate
For the love of rain, nature and moody photography! 💚Shooting nature pictures when the sky is grey or when there's snow, those are my forever fave moments. What's/when's your most liked moment?☺️
In estate perdo la cognizione del tempo. Mi accorgo che la giornata sta per finire dalla luce arancione del sole che entra nella camera da letto e quando é arrivata l'ora di fare il bagnetto ai bambini. Oggi giornata lunga per noi, stamattina ho spedito gli ultimi ordini in programma, mi piace questo momento, resto in attesa proprio come voi che aspettate di ricevere il vostro "amuleto del cuore". Da domani mi dedicheró principalmente al nuovo progetto, ma potete fare ordini fino al 5 agosto così che possano arrivare in tempo prima delle mie ferie😎. Buona serata io recupero i bambini dalla vasca e preparo la cena, la giornata é finita e domani é venerdì😉 . . . #spontaneamentecurato
I kind of imagined her like this when we decided to call her Nell. Shoulder-length, golden hair. Long-limbed. Bare-footed. Artlessly beautiful. . And here she is. My country girl.

Sucker for simple sunsets 🐡🍷
Turn those hurt feelings into poems, songs, novels, conversation starters, paintings, scribbles, flowers, scripts, reasons to have a nap or a bath or a hug or a friend or a walk in the woods in the mid-afternoon alone with the July air on your skin 🌙🎨
"There can be nothing more frequent than an occasional drink" - Oscar Wilde. What a dude. Are you going to enjoy a cocktail tonight? I highly recommend a Cynar spritz, it's like Aperol but a bit more herbal. Today I've been dreaming of holidaying for the whole of August in a warm, sweetly scented Mediterranean country. The guys over in Europe have the right idea - take August off! I've also been reminiscing about that amazing Italian street party I went to that @jacksonandlevine and @habitatuk put on a few months ago (remember that?), I really felt like I was in Puglia that evening. The whole collection sold out in three hours but Habitat have told me it will be back in stock in September. I get so many compliments on my lady face plate so I thought I'd spread the good news. I haven't been paid to say this, I just wanted to let you know that the collection will be back as I absolutely love it. Photo from @habitatuk
