Daily tea and cuddles with this curious boy* 🐈
Sunny has been living with me for over a year now. In that time he’s established himself as my cat - or maybe what I should say is, I am his human. Having lived 10 years as my Grandma’s companion maybe it’s natural that he’s loyal to one person rather than everyone, I kinda like that about him.
Last year we found out that Sunny has feline diabetes and it was hard to find any positive stories or advice from others. Some even told us just to put him to sleep but I wanted to try to help him. Managing his diabetes took a while to get used to, especially his injections, but treats have turned it into a positive thing for him. We’ve started home glucose testing to save money and stress of going to the vet every other week. (I went to the vets more than anywhere last year 🙈). Apart from one emergency hypo, he’s doing well, he looks and acts like a healthy cat. Our situation isn’t ideal and insurance only covers so much but I’m glad I get to call this inquisitive fluff ball my friend.
*no tea was consumed by Sunny, only treats!

The first day back at work after a long weekend is always hard...that’s why I had to jazz my day up with this fun blazer and flats ✨ how did you pull through the first day back?

RANT ALERT 🚨
I have just discovered yet ANOTHER high street chain has done the dirty on a small maker. This time it’s @hm who have directly copied Bridie Hall’s @bridierhall (designer & fellow shopkeeper) beautiful alphabet brush pots. STOLEN HER DESIGN. This is happening TOO MUCH. Zara, Anthropologie, Oliver Bonas to only name a few are all guilty of this despicable behaviour.
This statement (in the picture) is only true if we as consumers use the buying power we have to STOP this. Stop buying from soulless, meaningless and dubious big chain shops. The more you support your independent shops (wherever you live) the better. They bring difference and diversity to your highstreet. They design and work with real makers who are trying to make a living through what they make. They care.
But if you choose to spend your hard earned bucks in shops who basically don’t give a sh*t about you, or what they sell, then they will continue to take the piss out of all of us. THAT IS THE TRUTH.
Stop letting these types of shops mug you. Make your decisions wisely, because you are much more powerful than you think you are 💪🏻 And spread the word for your favourite independent shops, tell a friend, share a social media post, write a letter. I know I’m preaching to the converted, otherwise you wouldn’t be here supporting me, but do your family know, your friends? Your long lost cousin?
Now more than ever we need to do our bit for what we believe in, whether it’s political, whether it’s environmental, whether it’s bloody running a small shop and trying to bring awareness to that and ALL the other small shops!! VIVE LE INDIE SHOP REVOLUTION 💥 💥 💥

What group are you in?
Last night I was chatting with my husband about the different groups in our little town. The town has a population of only 1650 people.
He was saying how there's an A Group, B Group etc. It kinda reminded me of High School, although I'd never stayed long enough - I was always in the 'outcast' group. Fifteen years later, I'm still in that same group!
You see 'normal' was never my destiny. I also don't think it's your destiny either.. not the normal as we know it.
Maybe you're doing everything you can to:
- Love your body;
- Love yourself;
- Bring back your s_xual energy
- Break through fears that keep you stuck from opening up to pleasure - pleasure in all areas.
What you are seeking is to love yourself, feel energised and connected with your body and have a cup overflowing with love - for yourself and others.
And you can't seem to break through, you might try a technique/ affirmation or tool only to feel overwhelmed and slip back into deep-rooted stuff.
Spoiler alert: That deep-rooted stuff is the thing all empowered people move through. We all feel fear, overwhelmed, confused, and restricted at times. Paralyzed by our inner world... Is the same thing we all go through. The people you see energised, self-confident, at ease and intentionally striving in an effortless way are on the same path as you - they've just worked through some of those things, and have taken the time to learn how to do that.
You don't have to do it alone, I want you to join me and my community for a FREE workshop on how to move through fear and into pleasure. You are worthy of living your highest self and shining your light NOW!
To help you do this I'm teaching a 60-minute online workshop. It's packed with high-value content to help you move through some of your biggest blocks. Click the link in my profile to join my mailing list and you'll get a seat at my workshop. Because you don't have to do this alone!
This weekend is my birthday! It’s supposed to be rainy and cold out, so I can’t think of a better plan than staying in for a movie night in bed under this lovely pink peshtemal blanket! It’s super lightweight and it is the best blanket if you’re not a fan of bulky comforters during the warmer months. Only a few left in stock! 💗 @anchorsaweighsupplyco
В Питере можно не только пить красное, но и найти другие цвета!
Знаю, что за окном сейчас такая серость, что верится с трудом, но Петербург в инстаграме Лены @weirdfisheis вы не узнаете – столько красок, пожалуй, только на радуге.
Еще она постоянно делится своими находками в области баров и остального общепита.
Петербургом дело не ограничивается - в рубрике #налейкрутей Лена рассказывает о классных барах всех городов, где она бывает. В общем, чего бы вы не жаждали – заглядывайте!
Happy Snow Moon | Full Moon
my loves! It’s a full moon feeling. ✨
There’s so much energy with this super moon.
It’s a great time to release and let go of anything that isn’t serving your greater good,
your soul purpose.
Take a deep breath.
Take ruthless inventory.
And let go accordingly.
Create space to receive.
This will bring a renewed sense of
freedom + vibrancy to your life.
Get into the habit of asking yourself...
does this align with the life I’m trying to create?
You are worthy.
You are enough.
You are deserving.
The magic of YOU is endless.
🌕 WHOLE 🌕
Full, complete, perfect, total, fulfilled.
And so it is.
All is well.
You are loved.
I haven't been sharing views of Shopkeeper's rooms as I'm rethinking things, especially in the living+dining area. Never been happy with the look in those areas.....
One of the benefits of a hot January was taking some time here for myself and hanging out in the shady coolness. And a spot of inspiration hit! So there are some changes afoot that you'll get a peek of soon enough.
In the meantime lovelies, here's the new reading nook....
(Cushion @enfiladeplus; gents chair @tansleyandco)
Sometimes these boys get tired of just wrestling each other & they try to take on a stronger opponent.
It usually ends up looking something like this....they’re defeated but loving every minute of it & asking for more.
Raising sons and enjoying every minute.....even the chaotic ones!
