Botanic Garden


The Botanic Garden has long been one of my favourite places in Bristol, and I recently went for an overdue visit. I was a bit worried that the gardens might be quite empty so late in the summer, but they were still buzzing with life-literally, as almost every flower seemed to have a bee on it!

Crystal Mushrooms (A.k.a. I Tried A Pinterest Craft And It Actually Worked)



Sometime several months ago, I came across this Pinterest pin showing some magical looking mushrooms made from glass bowls and vases glued together. It seemed simple enough and I loved the results, so I kept an eye out in charity shops for pretty glassware I could make some mushrooms with. Eventually I managed to gather enough pieces to make two mushrooms-individual pieces of glassware in the right sizes were surprisingly difficult to find!

Natural Beauty, Skincare and Haircare Haul


I have VERY sensitive, combination skin, so after years of having allergic reactions and breakouts I switched to using only natural, plant based skincare products, and that seems to work for me. I also like that the products have less of an impact on the earth. For years I swore by the Waitrose Pure range, which is made from 97% natural ingredients, fragrance free, cruelty free, and also fairly reasonably priced. However, there isn't a Waitrose which stocks the full Pure range anywhere near me, their packaging is not entirely recyclable, and they insist on continuing to advertise in The Daily Mail, so when my stockpile of their products ran out at the beginning of the summer, I decided it was time to move on to new things.

Witchy Clothing and Homewares Try On Haul


Over the last few years my style has gradually got more "witchy", with lots of black and darker colours, long skirts and dresses, velvet, and crystal jewellery. Recently I've been wanting to reflect that in my home too, and I've ended up picking up quite a few witchy homewares, clothing and accessories over the last few months.
