Owning Your Introversion | rosie abigail

“How’s your meter?” What, my meter reading? Well, it’s pretty damn high thanks to this inept government. “No, your social meter, you silly soul.” Oh. Yeah. That thing.  That’s a glimpse of a conversation I have with my partner, almost daily. My social meter is slang for how I’m feeling mentally and socially. Each time,…

Earthian Zero Waste Shop | Hampshire Hotspots | rosie abigail

This post was first seen under the title 'The Power of the Swap' in Details Magazine x Winchester Fashion Week Issue. I thought this post would be the perfect start to my new series on some of my favourite (or important) places in Hampshire, so let's start with Earthian! If you are a Wintonian, you’ll…

March Favourites 2022 | Podcasts, Perfumes, DIY and More…

“Welcome to Spring!”, she says looking at the snow falling outside her window. We love a bit of global warming to start the season. That’s a lie, we don’t love any bit of global warming. Anyway, enough of focusing on the crippling state of the world and how it consumes my every thought, and let’s…

Becoming a Cat Mum | Adopt, Don’t Shop | rosie abigail

Introducing the being that has fully taken over my life in the best way possible - Pearl. That’s right! My fiancé and I are no longer a family of two, we’re a trio, baby! My partner Rory and I have been together for over seven years and as soon as we moved in together, we…

Renovating My ~Dream~ Boho Office | DIY & Renovation | rosie abigail

It’s transformation central here, folks! Back in the summer of 2021, my fiancé and I bought a filthy, unloved, terraced Victorian house that smelt of smoke, weed, and cat pee. I’m very aware that on paper that does not sound like an appealing buy. But we managed to look past the flea infested carpets at…

Six Big Ideas for a Sustainable Wedding | 2022 Wedding | Rosie Abigail

Folks, it is officially less than six months until I get married! That’s wild! It feels just like yesterday that Rory, my fiancé, surprised me with a ring and I screamed the house down with “What? Yes, OH MY GOD YES!”. Actually, it only feels like last year that I got butterflies in my stomach…

No Year’s Resolutions: My 2022 Goals | Rosie Abigail

No Year’s Resolutions: My 2022 Goals | Rosie Abigail

This is not a resolutions post. Not ‘new year, new me’ here! In fact, I am resolved to say I hate the phrase ‘New Year's Resolutions’! The idea of New Year’s Resolutions seem to come with a kind of social stigma; that you are only doing them because it’s a new year and that you’ll…

Road Trip to Scotland (And Beyond!) | Staycation

What was the first thing you did when you passed your driving test? For my fiancé, he drove one thousand miles on a trip with me in a car he had only owned for 48 hours beforehand (big yikes). That’s right - it was road trip time! We’ve just come back from nine days away,…

Plant Parenting 101: Best Plants for Beginners

Well, it seems everyone and their cousin has become houseplant obsessed during the pandemic. You know I have. What started as a fun little hobby to share with my housemate in the middle of a global lockdown has now turned into at least 72% of my personality, and I have no regrets. I am now…

Where On Earth Have I Been? | Accidental Blogging Break

To quote Obi-Wan Kenobi, ‘hello there’. It’s your friendly neighbourhood Rosie, back from two months away. Simply put, whoooooooops…  I didn’t plan to be gone this long. I had only planned a two week break from the end of May and beginning of June; not even a time period long enough for me to warrant…
