We adopted a fur baby! Meet our new fluffball

Meet Meier! (pronounced Maya – her first cat dad has Swiss-German roots, and she’s named after his old neighbour!).  Meier is a Lilac British Shorthair – I’ve always really wanted a shorthair – ever since watching the McVities advert really. Their teddybear looks and sweet easy-going nature made me fall in love with them. I […]

The Little Things: My House Plant Obsession

So, I’ve become a little bit obsessed with house plants recently. I blame the dreamy interior posts on Kate La Vie’s blog. I just feel like a little bit of greenery really makes a room come to life.

The Little Acre Kitchen: My New Favourite Lunch Spot

I LOVE food. One of the main reasons that I exercise regularly is that I could never diet. Life’s too short. Now, when it come to eating OUT, I can be a bit of a fuss-pot. I hate paying for food that I could make better myself. Because of this, I’m constantly on the look […]

The Little Things: A Much Needed Dose of Vitamin Sea

I’ve said it so many times before, but I’m happiest by the sea (or a turquoise blue alpine lake…. i’m not fussy). Theres just something about the sea that I find incredibly calming.

We’ve had the odd day that has felt like spring, only for temperatures to plummet again! This last week, however, has been absolutely glorious! More sunshine, lighter evenings […]
