Self help books line the shelves in my house. I’ve read all the cult-following self help classics but I’ve still got so many more I want to read. I thought I’d share what’s on my 2019 reading list, in case any of these self help book ideas resonate with you.Read More
We did it! We reserved a cut-your-own Christmas Tree up at Wilderness Woods, Sussex after last year not being quick enough (they all got taken!). Love these pics Neil took of our morning there…Read More
I've been experimenting with Miracle Mornings for about 3 weeks now. Still new to it and still working out my own routine during the early starts, but thought I'd share how I've been finding it, my routine, and tips for giving it a go if you're considering trying it.Read More
If you've been a Fifi McGee fan for a while you'll know that every year, the very moment the leaves start falling, Neil and I race out and prance around the woods for a wee photoshoot sesh together. There's something about all the colours, the first frost and the excuse to wrap up warm that makes us look forward to our annual Autumnal shoots together. This year, we fled to Wilderness Woods!Read More

In December 2016 I quit my job in the search for an entrepreneurial path. A few fails later, it turns out I was going down the right path all along, and here we are announcing our photography + styling business, hello Elements <3Read More
Dear cushion-fluffing friends,
I’ve been on a hiatus from my blog making some life-altering plans.
When you hear the word “hiatus” you may think of a dreamy escape from city life, locking yourself in a cabin in the woods far from civilisation, unplugging your brain from work or projects, ceasing all to-do-lists (those that stretch beyond planting tomato seeds anyway), and just doing nothing.
But alas I’ve had a hiatus far from that. A better one than that. Really.Read More
I thought I'd write a bit about mine and Neil's story saving for our place and the cuts we had to make (and still have to) to acquire a big enough deposit to buy in the Brighton/Hove area whilst keeping maintenance costs of the property in mind.Read More
I spent about 4 hours in one day looking for the perfect wall art for our bedroom. It had to be something that suits us both as a couple, something that suited the colours of our room and most importantly the words had to mean something when I looked at it a whole year down the line, I tend to lose interest in things after a few months.
I ended up finding nothing. Then I realised. You can totally make your own quotes, get them printed on Photobox, and buy a cheap or second hand frame to hang it.
It's a fraction of the cost for something that's perfect for you, and essentially hand made.
Here's one I made earlier (above). I'm still playing around with quotes, photos and colours before I print and hang something though. It's so much fun and I'm learning a lot about photoshop & design.
I'm fresh home from a French Alpine retreat with work (which I'll share stories and photos on soon enough) and thought I'd post a holiday / festival-vibe outfit I didn't take off the whole time I was travelling.
Enter my new beautiful Anthropologie kimono. In late 20s heat, this baby kept me as cool as a cucumber and prevented my milky white skin from burning like a prune. Do you like it?
We stayed in the most stunning chalet (more info and stunning photos from Neil to come, I promise) right on the border of the Swiss and French Alps in a village called Morillon. It was a transformational week for me. Unplugging, relaxing with cool people and exploring the mountains with a bit of adventure (and fondue) thrown in.
Come Friday I'll be back in the Alps again - this time Bavaria. Stick around until early July and I'll be gate crashing your newsfeed with interior updates, outfits and holiday stories, no doubt.
Can you believe Christmas day is almost upon us?
I've spent the weekend wrapping presents listening to cheesy Christmas tunes and drinking red wine way too early in the day. Feeling very festive indeed :)
Our front room looks a bit like Santa's grotto at the mo; we've gone all out on decorations, logs in the fireplace, bauble filled vases, the lot. It's looking really special, so I decided to keep the rest of my place looking less festive but still cosy with splashes of bright colours here and there so as not to take away from the christmas-chic room.
I thought I'd share our new bedding from Argos' range with you. I try to freshen up the look of our room quite regularly by changing the cushions, blankets and duvet covers, and over the past few weeks I just haven't been able to get enough of the colour mustard, so when I saw these cushions and knew they had to be mine.
Get ready for serious levels of Christmas cosiness and snaps of some of my favourite picks in the Brighton store at the moment. There was bucks fizz a'flowing, mouth tingling canapés and cheese and a heap of inspiration to get everyone thinking about gift ideas and tarting up your home on the big day.
With only 7 or 8 shopping days left until Christmas, if you're still on the market for unique gift ideas I'd really encourage you to pop in and take a nosy around. I just bought a beautiful lamp for my nan for Christmas there (lucky she doesn't read my blog!) and knew it was for her within 10 mins of being in the store!
Happy shopping you lovely people. Oh and if you do pop in to the Home Sense store, look out for the pretty Hang a Bauble campaign they're initiating to help the Surrey charity Action for Children.
Customers are invited to pop in store, buy a bauble for £1 on which they can write a festive wish or happy childhood Christmas memory and add it to the hundreds of baubles that line the till-side walls :) what a wonderful initiative for charity eh?
I love deep mahogany brown leather sofas. There's something so cosy, wintery and traditional about them that make them instantly give an expensive feel to a room. Furniture Choice stock a pretty nice range with small wheels that I think would look so cute as a mismatched sofa beside our Chesterfield. If only we had the extra space!
I speak for every woman that has ever stepped into Zara Home and smelled the sweet aromas of their wide range of infusers when saying, Zara Home is the epitomises dreamy home ware. If I was minted, I would deck my whole home in all things Zara, like this luxurious rose gold candle holder which would make a wonderful centrepiece to any table this Christmas.
I best start saving for the January sales eh?!
