Life, lately…

Hello! It has been rather a while since I was here. A combination of tech breakdown (RIP beloved MacBook Pro) and lack of time has left this little blog rather dusty.

So, this is just a short post to give you a quick update on a few happenings before I hopefully get back into the swing of blogging again.

The  apples are alive!

You may remember that I moved allotments at the end of last year, digging up my four apple trees in the process. I’ve been worried all winter about whether they’d survive and just this week, they all blossomed! Well, all except my Court Pendu Plat – but it’s a late blossoming variety and its budding up nicely. So, needless to say, I’m thrilled and relieved. Whether all that blossom lasted through this week’s rain storms is another matter, but at least I know my apple trees are alive…

A month of books. 

The death of my laptop has meant a slower month. I don’t have a TV and so without a laptop, I’ve been relying on an older form of entertainment: books!  I’ve been in the mood for lots of fun, easy fiction and so I’ve whipped through books from a variety of authors including Sue Grafton and Gail Carriger, with Matt Haig’s novel The Radleys – about a family of vampires living in a Yorkshire village – as a particular highlight.

Non-fiction highlights include How to be a Productivity Ninja (terrible title, great book) and a bit of indulgence from Oprah – O’s Little Book of Happiness. I make no apologies for sometimes choosing easy over challenging as I think that one of the joys of books is that there’s one for any emotion…

Travel Planning.

We go to Copenhagen next month. I cannot wait and have spent an alarming amount of time doing online research and pinning pretty things to my Pinterest board. Have you been? Any travel tips for me?

Nourishing Goals.

I’ve been continuing to write up monthly Nourishing Goals, from my Unravelling Workbook by Susannah Conway. It’s completely working for me, and has changed how I see my year progressing and how I choose to spend my time. I highly recommend you join in with Unravelling at the end of the year; Susannah has mentioned recently that she’ll be running it again.

My skincare project. 

One of the main things that I’ve been working on is my latest project. I’ve been torn between wanting to shout about it from the rooftops and wanting to keep it a secret until I launch – which could be a while yet! So, here it is… If you go over to my Instagram account, you’ll find more, but in a nutshell, I’m making a range of natural skincare. I’m completely in love with this project and cannot wait to launch it.

So that’s what I’ve been up to this month. How about you?

      Hurrah indeed! Its coming together, slowly, slowly…

      Hope the balm helps with the pink – I need to make something with aloe vera in really.

  3. Copenhagen!

    We liked the food here: http://www.bodega.dk/#!forside/mainPage and here: http://cofoco.dk/en/restaurants/scarpetta-rantzausgade/.

    We didn’t have time to get too museum-y but the National Museum has something called (I think) stories of Denmark that is a really manageable history of the country. It’s in a big circle so you can start in the present day and move backwards or vice versa.

    We also really enjoyed the boat tour that we did (despite the torrential rain) and the Torvehallerne food market is amazing!

    Hope you enjoy – it sounds from this like you’re definitely continuing to nourish in all aspects of life… Looking forward to your skincare project coming to light, too.

      Hi Isobel! Thank you for the tips – I think the boat trip and food market definitely need to be on our list and I’ll have a look at those food links too – I’m getting pretty excited now.

      I do feel like I’m still continuing to nourish- and actually, having unplanned time off-line has actually helped with that!

    Your skincare project intrigues me, when can we hear more?

      Hi Ben! I’m hoping that it won’t be too long. I’ve got to get my products tested, which will take a while, so I’ll probably launch with just one product and take it from there…

  5. Welcome back! I look forward to trying out your new skincare range when it’s ready x
