30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Memories

I WAS really struggling with the prompt for memories yesterday. I’m not someone who likes to dwell on the past too much, maybe because I have a few regrets, probably because I like to think I could have done things differently. Hindsight is 20/20, I know. But while the past might be something that’s difficult… Continue reading 30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Memories

A Single Sock

SHE found it at the back of cupboard buried underneath an old jumper and some old tights with a hole in them. It's bright pink colour shone brightly underneath grey wool, and she released a sigh as she pried the single sock free from its dark grasp. She'd been looking for this sock for months… Continue reading A Single Sock

30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Words

STICKS and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me. Today's prompt in the 30-Day Gratitude Challenge is words. And much like Albus Dumbledore once said, "words are in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic". Our words are important because they give us a voice. No matter who you… Continue reading 30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Words

30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Happiness

TODAY’S prompt is happiness. I’ve been thinking a lot about my own happiness lately, and about what makes me feel well and truly happy. My family, my friends, my boyfriend, it seems like an easy answer. But it’s true that they are the ones that make me happy. I like taking stock of little things.… Continue reading 30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Happiness

30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Colour

THERE’S no such thing as too much colour sometimes and so for today’s 30-Day Gratitude Challenge prompt, I’m embracing the brightest things in life. My mum bought me this jumper after a hellish week (bless her heart), and it’s brought me all kinds of positive vibes this week. This is a jumper that says 'hello,… Continue reading 30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Colour

30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Love

"LOVE, love me do, You know I love you, I'll always be true, So please, love me do, Whoa, love me do." Love Me Do - The Beatles If you haven't already guessed love is the prompt for Day Three of this 30-Day Gratitude Challenge, and I've kicking the idea back and forth all day.… Continue reading 30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Love

30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Home

DAY one's prompt is about home. They say home is where the heart is, and for me, that is my bed. Sounds a little cringey, but I am obsessed with how cosy my bed - especially as winter has started to hit Scotland. It's not just a safe space, it's also where I write, where… Continue reading 30-Day Gratitude Challenge – Home

That’s the way I Hygge it

LAST summer I discovered Hygge. Late to the party, I know, and shockingly so, I know. But hey ho, here I am at the party, my Hygge membership card in hand. It’s kind of hard to imagine why no one would really want to get aboard the Hygge party bus. It’s all about chill, and… Continue reading That’s the way I Hygge it

Here’s To You, Fall

THERE'S just something about Autumn. I always tell people that winter is the most wonderful time of the year because it’s all about family, and Christmas, and cake, and all things merry and bright (don't even try to argue - there’s a song to back me up and everything). But as Autumn has crept up… Continue reading Here’s To You, Fall

Day Twenty Two (A Thousand Words)

ON sticky, grey hot days like today in Glasgow I kinda wish I was elsewhere. I spent a lot of my summer last year travelling, from Croatia to Paris to Estepona, and it really took me back to loving photography. I’m better with words than photos that’s for sure, but they do say a picture… Continue reading Day Twenty Two (A Thousand Words)
