Coffee Work Sleep Creatives X The Northern Dough Co

We all know that working on your own can get lonely, whether that’s creating in a workshop or tapping away at your keyboard in a coffee shop or late into the night while your kids sleep. Not having colleagues to bounce ideas off to or just chat to about last night’s must see TV can soon become something you really miss.

July’s #LittleLoves

This month saw the end of term busyness and the sigh of relief (mixed with a little panic) of the summer holidays beginning.

I enjoyed taking this time while writing my post to reflect over the month, remembering the things we’ve done and how we felt. Without further ado lets get onto the wonderful little things from…

Why I’m Loving Modern Minimal Gold Jewellery

I’ve always been a bit of a magpie when it comes to jewellery and accessories. Even at the age of three I had a treasure box full of costume jewellery gifted to me by a few lovely elderly neighbours. I’d prance around with layers of beaded necklaces and bejewelled brooches and possibly even a tiara. Even as I got older this more is more attitude continued. At the age of ten I remember spending all…

My Petite Picks For Summer

So it turns out I don’t have a whole lot in my wardrobe for summer. I think this is because we’ve had such rubbish summers over the last couple of years and we’ve not been on holiday anywhere hot during those summers either. I’m left scrambling the back of my wardrobe for whatever I can find that looks a bit summery! This has of course led me to do a little browsing of certain online…
