Hurrah, my OOO is firmly ON this week and I’m excited to be hopping aboard a train to a new city and spending time exploring, sightseeing, cafe-hopping and recharging. See y’all soon x https://ift.tt/2rET7be

Apparently plans are afoot to give Hilton House in the NQ a contemporary facelift, but I can’t help but be charmed by the current, slightly shabby, facade of this Richard Seifert-designed building, especially when glistening in the early morning sun.. ✨ https://ift.tt/2G4lNzN

Back again for allll the morning cawfee with @unfoldtheday — can’t think of a better way to start the day! @hamptonandvouis ☕️ https://ift.tt/2KOGlQk

Morning Sunshine! ☀️ https://ift.tt/2run8LB

Starting the day with iced coffee and admiring my fave bank holiday purchase so far: this sweet little palm tree print tray from @object_style. Later I’m looking forward to basking in the sunshine some more, and catching up with magical moonbeam @wildshe_ 💫✨ https://ift.tt/2KGTKKf

Finally iced coffee weather, wahoo! 😎 https://ift.tt/2rmDbei

A jam-packed bank holiday lies ahead, but first, a moment for coffee and contemplation on the sofa.. happy Friday guys! https://ift.tt/2Ij7hZQ

It’s been another busy ol’ week, but it’s my excruciatingly slow home wifi connection that has been pushing my mental exhaustion levels to the limit the past few days.. nothing like major work deadlines and wifi speeds that resemble mid-90s dial-up to send your anxiety levels sky high! I’m definitely in need of a cup of @teapigs snooze tea and an early night tonight.. 😴 https://ift.tt/2Jx3IfH

Still buzzing for last night’s fab #creativesunhooked event with @me_and_orla, sharing her pearls of wisdom on all things Instagram. I was too busy chatting to take many snaps of the gorgeous venue (@porticolibrary) but one big take away from the event reiterated that wonderful quote from Haruki Murakami: “If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.” It’s so easy to think that your community on instagram is the only community on instagram, but if you allow yourself to fall down the rabbit hole of intriguing hashtags and location tags of places that interest you, you can find a whole new instaworld, doing things in entirely different ways, that you can learn from and be inspired by. And outside of these small squares, you can find inspiration in all kinds of offline places: in music, books, film, art, the natural world.. Right now, my biggest source of inspiration comes from wandering the streets of Manchester, sidestepping the city centre and turning down backstreets and alleys, keeping my eyes peeled for intrigue and letting my mind roam. For those wondering, this majestic spiral staircase can be found in @formlifestylestore, an oasis of calm on a gritty backstreet of the NQ, showcasing small independent makers who are making by hand on a small scale.. well worth seeking out for a dose of creative inspiration if you’re in the area! https://ift.tt/2HvCfKT

Can’t resist sunshine in the NQ! Doesn’t @snikarts’ Serenity look amazing today? 👀 ☀️ @citiesofhope https://ift.tt/2HOhBq1

It’s been a busy ol’ on-the-go week with trips out to Stoke-on-Trent and Ilkley for work, and I’m off again to Wales later, to climb Snowdon this weekend. But for now there is lovely light and a wonderful moment of peace in the flat.. which will last approximately 10 more mins before I’d better get stuck back in to work again.. 🙈🤣 Hope you manage to find a moment of calm in your day today too! https://ift.tt/2HhN9Yk

Most of my timeline are in Milan (or the Colorado desert) but honestly who needs that when it’s this sunny in the NQ by 8am! I’ve skipped Milan for the first time in four years, but if you’re missing some Milano Design in your feed, go follow my gals @enmajanepalin (for colour) @catesthill (for scandi-minimal) and @mad_about_the_house (for everything else). All of the design, none of the blisters.. #winning https://ift.tt/2J8GpZA

More @nicelykitchen x @linwood_fabric action. I just adore this Bamboo Garden print in dusky pink, perfectly paired with these sweet mini matcha donuts..🌴💕🍩 https://ift.tt/2vgP3CZ

Never not grabbing coffee at @modern_society_london when I’m in town.. ☕️👌🏼 @assemblyroast https://ift.tt/2vduOWX

Ooh, don’t mind if I do..! Love how beautifully these @nicelykitchen mini rose & pistachio donuts pair with my new @formlifestylestore mini plate and @linwood_fabric’s gorgeous Marrakech wallpaper in gold 👌🏼✨ https://ift.tt/2IEWJ3O

Instagram (@fabricofmylife)

I definitely consume waaaay too much coffee throughout the working week, so this morning I decided to switch things up a little and try a @teapigs matcha turmeric latte whipped up with @rudehealth’s new tiger nut milk instead. A fun twist on that ol’Instagram fave, golden mylk, it’s a delicate blend of sweet and spicy, and the perfect accompaniment to a morning spent relaxing on the sofa, trying to ignore the rain falling steadily outdoors.. happy Saturday, my loves! https://ift.tt/2GKvgNx

The busiest of weekends on set shooting for an exciting new start-up means I would have loved to spend today cosied up under the covers recovering but alas, places to be, people to see — which equates to alllll the coffee! I’m excited to be on the @weareunhooked #influencersunhooked panel tonight at the Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester, discussing brand collaborations with fellow bloggers @poutinginheels @amumtrackmind and @_hollygoeslightly. Hopefully see some of you there! http://ift.tt/2FS7SOx

What’s this? A cocktail post on a Friday morning??! I’m werk werk werking all weekend so it was wonderful to have a mini “Friday eve” out last night with @rebeccacohen_, checking out the new @cowhollowhotel in the NQ. Gorrrgeous West Coast vibes throughout, and an equally awesome cocktail menu to boot. We’ll definitely be back! http://ift.tt/2FJqtfI

I can think of no better way to celebrate my one-year-in-Manchester anniversary than spending the day dashing across the city, being whipped by snowstorms. I’m not kidding. Today’s crazy weather first illuminated, then darkened, then illuminated the city again, but every single moment I was awed by the beauty of this place I now call home.. I hope you’ve had a great snow day, whether tucked up safe and sound indoors, or outside embracing the big chill head on 🌬❄️ #beastfromtheeast http://ift.tt/2ETtddc

Instagram (@fabricofmylife)

I’ve been enjoying all the glorious sunshine streaming into #thefabflat this weekend, safe in the knowledge that it’s minus degrees out there and the decision to hibernate indoors watching the footy was the right call.. 😏👍🏼 http://ift.tt/2BOzrbz

Instagram (@fabricofmylife)

Still dreaming about brunch this week @milkteethcoffee: sweetcorn fritters with avocado, kasundi & lime.. 😋 http://ift.tt/2FrU8dc

Gorgeous Cali vibes in the heart of Tooting.. @milkteethcoffee ☕️ http://ift.tt/2ELi7Hn

Morning moments with the Sunday papers and my new obsession, Caffé by @alpro, a creamy blend of coffee with hazelnut that is oh so moreish! This isn’t sponsored btw, I just spotted it on offer in Sainsbos and knew I had to try it.. 😋 What are your plans for today, my friends? I’m busy working on my new freelance website, which will hopefully go live later in the week - better late than never, right? It’s not like I went freelance over a year ago.. 🙈🤣 I’ve also got a new insta account set-up (@kate__does) if you fancy giving that a follow too.. Happy Sunday all! xx http://ift.tt/2EOmMY8

Instagram (@fabricofmylife)

Finally a moment of calm after a busy day, and time to crack open my bday chocolates, light my new candle and listen to the new @davidduchovny album on repeat 🎶 Happy Valentines, my loves 💕 http://ift.tt/2Gd3Hf9

Pancakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner is my jam, any day of the year really, but especially today! Can’t wait for tonight’s Pancake Day extravaganza with my loves @iliketweet @rebeccacohen_ @chambrayandcurls, and indulge in what I’ve been reliably informed are the best pancakes in Manchester at @evelynscafebar. BRING. IT. ON. 🥞🤤 http://ift.tt/2BroEnr

Instagram (@fabricofmylife)

It’s been a busy ol’ week of photo-shoots, tour-guiding, discovering new haunts (hello @thedaisynq 💕) and munching my way round the best foodie joints in the city. And this weekend I get to do it all over again, as my second houseguest of the week arrives for a few days of fun and adventure — but where to take her?? Ah, so many places, so little time!! 🙈 Hope y’all have a great one my lovelies, xx http://ift.tt/2EST02a

Instagram (@fabricofmylife)

We’ve had all of the foodie fun this weekend, and an incredible roast dinner at Hawksmoor this afternoon has just about finished me off! I’ll be spending the rest of the weekend horizontal on the sofa, with the lovely scent of this @diptyque candle for company - a lovely birthday gift from my Mcr gals @iliketweet @rebeccacohen_ & @chambrayandcurls 💕 http://ift.tt/2E2YTIL

Instagram (@fabricofmylife)

Afternoon coffee and chocolate breaks are much needed on a busy Friday afternoon! Taking the day off yesterday to celebrate my birthday meant today needed to be spent being busy-busy-busy at my desk, but I’m pretty much all caught up now and ready to relax into a weekend of foodie fun with my Mcr crew.. hope you all have a lovely one too! 😘 http://ift.tt/2Ezeykd

Instagram (@fabricofmylife)

ALWAYS. // @thehatterscoffee speak my language, and provide a wonderful refuge from today’s torrential hailstorms! Thanks for the recommendation, @ruggedwisdom ☕️ http://ift.tt/2ntXDr8

A few moments of Saturday morning bliss. I’ve a mountain of work to tackle this weekend (all good exciting stuff though, so I’m not complaining!) but I’ve first got the latest episode of The Good Place and a full pot of coffee to indulge in.. happy weekend, all! http://ift.tt/2Drrmvr

Instagram (@fabricofmylife)

Staved off the January Blues in the company of two wonderfully creative women today: @artsynibs and @georgieglass_. Good food and good company are most definitely the best things to indulge in on a Monday - thanks so much for the scintillating conversation and creative inspiration m’dears! 😘 http://ift.tt/2rbdxLV

Instagram (@fabricofmylife)

Such a lovely Sunday hanging with my loves @iliketweet @chambrayandcurls @rebeccacohen and meeting @lolapastimebliss for a yummy roast dinner and delicious cake (more in Stories). Now it’s time to relax with a fascinating new book and a hot chocolate in bed, and prepare for an exciting and busy week ahead.. ✨ http://ift.tt/2r4eNkd
