Brightening the house for Spring

I’m quite new to trying to document my little love of interior design. Prior to buying this house, I’d had neither the space nor money to be able to make home purchases, or actually enjoy the design process. This house is impossible not to get you inspired. When we bought it, everything was so neutrally…… Continue reading Brightening the house for Spring

Food Fix: King Richard III in Leicester

There are places you always see people eating at that you’ve just not had a chance to try out. The King Richard III is one of those for me. Located next to Highcross, literally next door to Cosy Club, it’s a restored Victorian pub serving some very classy, and alternative twists on pub classics. With…… Continue reading Food Fix: King Richard III in Leicester

On the turntable this month

I have rather lofty ambitions for the upgrades I want to make to my current vinyl set-up, but it doesn’t stop me listening to a lot of music on my current turntable. This record player is still special to me. It marks one of my first purchases from my first full-time job post university. I…… Continue reading On the turntable this month

Coco is beautiful and deeply affecting, exactly the type of animation I adore

Coco is one of my favourites of the year so far and has jumped into the number one spot as my favourite Pixar film. I’ve always been fascinated by Dia de los muertos, not least for the skull imagery and bright colours. It’s about memory and family though. Family is incredibly important to me, so…… Continue reading Coco is beautiful and deeply affecting, exactly the type of animation I adore
