I tend to elicit odd looks from strangers at this time of year. Mainly it’s because you can find me shouting “oh that’s so cwtchy!” or “yesss that’s just so hygge” at almost everything.

Despite all the mantras of ‘new year, new me’ and the New Year’s resolutions that pop up all over the place, I find September is more a time of change than January. I know I’m not the only one who thinks this - come on, put your hands up too! I can chalk this down … Continue reading September as a Time of Change | Lifestyle and Update
Does anyone else feel like this is a bit of an extrovert’s world? No shade at those 50% of people who are extroverts. I mean, look at the phrase ‘living life to the full’. That makes me think of people who ignore regrets, make friends everywhere they go, always having their communication brain and raring … Continue reading Why I Love Being an Introvert (and You Should Too!) | rosie abigail
(Well, I don't know if we'll ever be post-COVID, but you know what I mean...) Ya’ll ever get stuck thinking about your achievements and goals in life? Oh, that’s just my highly anxious brain? Ah.

Well, it looks like I’ve had to move my blogging schedule around again. No, it’s not because I’ve got lockdown brain and writer’s block this time; it’s because I got engaged! Surprise, world! It was a complete and utter (but welcome) surprise. After being with my boyfriend for five and a half years, living together … Continue reading Whoops… I Got Engaged! | rosie abigail
With my love of floaty skirts and overwhelming need to be the ‘mum friend’, it was eventually going to happen… That’s right folks, I’m what the cool kids are calling a ‘plant mom’. As soon as lockdown hit, I got my first houseplant, and since then my plant habit has slowly been getting out of … Continue reading Meet My Houseplants! | Plant Care, Tips, & Tricks
I’m gonna come straight out and say it - if you aren’t making some sustainable changes to your life, what the heck are you doing? I’m not on about turning your life upside down, living in a vegan tree-house in the forest, and turning your toilet into a compost pile. I mean, smaller, more realistic … Continue reading Five Small But Sustainable Changes You Can Make | rosie abigail
I had scheduled a happy-go-lucky blog post today about small and sustainable changes I’d made in my life. But to post something so light and cheery seemed so disingenuous to me. For those stumbling across this post in the future, or simply those who have not been looking at the news, eight days ago, George … Continue reading Use Your Privilege.
Just like that, another month of lockdown passes. I swear this month lasted about a week. Or all my weeks blurring into one?... Anyway, all I know is that May is nearly over and June is almost here.

To paraphrase Mary Poppins, ‘I am practically average in every way’ - physically, at least! I am the average height, average bra size, and average clothing size for a woman in the UK, which obviously means my body type is not reflected in fashion at all. Makes sense, right?
