Well helloo there!
I do always start my posts with long time no see, but I have been incredibly busy since I left Preston at the beginning of June!
-It started with one house move
-Adopting the role of wedding planner
-Celebrating my mum & stepdad's wedding
-House/dog/cat/sister sitting for two and a half weeks
-Moving house again, this time from my childhood home
-Setting up my caravan
-Holidaying in tipis with my girls
-Wedding in tipis with my other girls

It's just been a crazy jam-packed couple of months, but I've absolutely loved it! I've literally just got internet in my caravan as my computer has been packed away in a box for far too long.

I'm super-happy living in my caravan which is known as 'The Lone Ranger'. It's such a cosy, cute space and I'll definitely be showing you more snaps when I find a home for everything. It's obviously got a hippy vibe and more plants and cat ornaments then deemed necessary but hey that's me :)

Another stunning view of the countryside, Mia helping with the moving process, Buckmaster wedding! Millie checking out my empty childhood room before we moved.

In fact, I'm just really happy to be back in the countryside. I have to admit last time I was living here I didn't make the most of it at all. I was stressed about job hunting and irritated that I couldn't settle properly without my own room. Plus I was on jobseekers and that was pretty soul-destroying especially as I'd just graduated university and I was desperate to be living in a city. I guess I was lonely too as all my friends were spread out over the country...

Now I'm in a completely different mindset, I have my own space, job-hunting is on the back burner and I have some of my best friends living close-by. My main goal over the next few months is to go travelling. Not necessarily a year-long backpacking trip just a few different countries whilst I don't have anything to tether me here. So many people my age have had gap years or worked abroad and I haven't done anything like that. My wanderlust gene has obviously reared its curious head.
The Lake District is one of the most beautiful places in the world and I'm so lucky to be living here again, but I need some new experiences and some sunshine!

I've got some exciting things planned for August, The main event being Lowlands festival in Amsterdam! I've been before in 2008 and it was incredible. Tame Impala are my must watch band, their latest album has been on repeat for the last month.
I'm also meeting up with a few thrifty ladies for a 'charity shop blogger meet-up' which as you can imagine is right up my street :)
I'll be catching up with a lot of my family too which is always nice.

Anyway, I'll be posting a lot more regularly now I'm settled here. Thank you for sticking around even through my erratic silences :)

What are you looking forward to this month?
Thanks for reading :)

  1. Yay you're back! I've seen all the photos from the weddings you uploaded and they look like the loveliest days ever! The Lakes is amazing isn't it? We just arrived near Windermere for a week yesterday, and I'm loving being back here. Every time I always feel like I wanna live here! Hope you're having a lovely time exploring :D
