The Lighter Things Of The World Pt. 2

Life is slowly going back to the way it was. The possibility of venturing into a cafe for a coffee (while keeping your distance) is now more of a reality than it was in March. And we will take that, and anything close to that, as a win. While we can’t plan a trip to […]

Friends Who Don’t Ask You Any Questions

It is surely assumed that when catching up with a friend for dinner or coffee, they will ask you at least one question. Not questions like ‘how are you going?‘ as you both settle into your seats. I mean questions that show that they have a genuine interest and understanding of your life. ‘How’s your […]

The Lighter Things Of The World: A French Château

As we scroll our instagram feeds on a Monday night (and Tuesday night and Wednesday night and Thursday night etc), there is the possibility of us stumbling upon tiny little sparks of joy. And in the current global climate, any kind of inspiration is welcome. This is the post that I fell in love with […]

The Lighter Things Of The World Pt. 1

The world is a little scary at the moment. We’re forced to stay inside, we can’t visit our grandparents and there is no way we can consider the possibility of travelling to NYC any time soon. Plans, dreams and goals all need to take a back seat. But that doesn’t mean our happiness does. Tiny, […]
