April Goals 

All sorts of things have been happening at home, most of them small – kindergarten stories, a plethora of destruction, changes around the house as I purged and purged some more. Probably the biggest change is that I started studying, an online graphic design course that I attempted six years ago and gave up as… Continue reading April Goals

August {round up}

Honestly, August has been a bit of a non-event. I went out on the 5th and then didn’t leave the house for THREE WEEKS.

Wearing: A bunch of new maternity tees from Ripe, which I bought in grey, white and mint, my fave turquoise jeans, and just recently a pair of denim maternity shorts. They took forever to arrive, and they were a pretty… Continue reading Hello November
