Rules of Summer

So, as it is the start of July tomorrow, I've decided to put together a wee list of things I want to do this summer! For me, lists are a great way of referencing things I want to complete, but either forget about, or for some reason, just escape me! Inspired by Emily of Cupcakes & Cashmere.

1. Be a tourist in my new home! 
I've been living in London for a year now, but haven't had the chance to do some of the most iconic 'London' activities! Hopefully the sun is kind, and I can tick off some major activities!

2. Redesign my website
More of a personal goal, I feel my website (and blog for that matter) need a wee bit of a summer makeover!

3. Cook & Bake more
I love to cook and bake, and want to find the time to try new things, experiment, and enjoy being in the kitchen.

4. Take summer holidays
Last year I spent most of the summer in and around London, as I had just arrived - this year, I want to explore more of Europe!

5. Read more books
Instead of sitting on tube, in the park or in the garden, playing on my iPhone or Laptop, read a book! I love reading and need to do it more...

6. Do more personal design projects
I really want to start some projects that I have been thinking about recently, summer is definitely the time to start these! How exciting!

7. Learn to bike in the craziness that is London
Straight to the point, London is a scary place to be a cyclist... I want to conquer that fear and start biking to work!

8. Be a better friend
It's always a joy to spend time with lovely friends I haven't seen in awhile, and a sunny afternoon is perfect for a picnic in the park.

9. Explore Britain
They say that London isn't a very accurate depiction of what Britain is really like - I want to take some trips around this country, the lake district for tramping (hiking), & exploring some different areas!

10. Shop smarter
Food, clothes, anything - London has such amazing markets, why not take advantage!



  1. love your blog... that is all.

  2. no problem. been reading for months, but haven't said anything, but i love your selections. super high quality!
