Exploring The Iconic SS Great Britain


The SS Great Britain is a Bristol landmark, of huge local and historical significance, and an Instagrammer's delight, so it seemed odd that despite my love of Bristol and all the beautiful things in this wonderful city, I'd never visited. A couple of weeks ago I decided to change that, and headed off to explore this huge iron ship.

Outfit: Purple Roses



This was an outfit for a cloudy day, when it was still cool enough to wear things like velvet skirts. I have been going through a purple phase recently, and so put together this very purple ensemble, complete with purple lipstick.

Looking Back At Spring

                                                                               (crocus)

I spent a lot of time outside this Spring, and took a lot of photos...and then forgot to share most of them. So I thought I would do a little look back, at what was a spectacularly beautiful Spring.

Bluebells


If I had to choose an overall favourite flower (which would be tough, because I love so many), it would probably be bluebells. I find them utterly enchanting.

Spike Island Open


Over the early May Bank Holiday weekend, Spike Island art centre had their annual open event. I'd never been to Spike Island before, despite walking past it more times than I could count, so I took advantage of the event and popped in on their opening night. I'd been under the delusion that Spike Island was "just" an art gallery, and had no idea that the building also housed Spike Studios, with many artists studios.

Spring Thrifting


It's time for a round up of everything I thrifted this Spring! Over the Spring months I have had a really good run of luck with thrift finds. I actually worked for a chain of charity shops until this year, and although I found a lot of awesome stuff at work, the last thing I wanted to do in my free time was thrift. Leaving that job has re-awoken my love of searching for thrifted treasures, and I've been enjoying exploring some of the charity and second hand shops in my new area.
