“You used to be much .... muchier” musings on media marmalade.com x
Window shopping alternative lives. And musing about my lack of time on mediamarmalade.com ... yes folk! A new post is actually live!
Back to the daily grid ... I mean grind! Although on more exciting (scary) news, this week @jayr_dee and I celebrate our TEN year anniversary! Whaaaaaaa 😳! Sadly I’ve got a week from hell lined up so it’ll probably be beans on toast to celebrate. Although the optimist in me is hoping we do make our reservation at the new White City House! So excited to see it, especially as it’s our second local now!
Sunday went some way to make up for the rest of the madness! I need a holiday ☀️
Sunday never felt so good! Finally a lie in, tea in bed and one day to get out into this sunshine ☀️ definitely in need of some tub time to chill the hell out 🙏🏻
Basking in the sunlight sinking in that vitamin D, lord knows I need it! Slowly but surely running low on steam, but for today, it’s nothing an almond ice coffee, a new skirt, a smashing Saint Laurent and some glorious sunshine can’t solve. #TGIF
I’m back from the country side having spent 48 hours working in the most beautiful settings , I’ve slept a full 10 hours after the 3.5 hour drive home and a 20 Hour day, and I’m now back to the grind! Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA lately, especially on the blog again, works at a peak right now so for the next two weeks I’m juggling things like a mad woman! On that note ... must dash!
When life throws you lemons, pull out your best power suit and a little Saint Laurent .... give yourself an Amy Cuddy pep talk and super man pose, and tackle the day head on! Shop via http://liketk.it/2vKbL @liketoknow.it #liketkit

Breakfasting like kings, all about the sides 💸
Also grappling with Instagram! Bear with me, and as people who have followed my account for a long time, I would love your advice! I LOVE photography, love it! I take a lot of pride in capturing the right shot, editing it in my own style and showcasing it in the best way possible! Naturally I share a lot of my photos on my Instagram as well as my blog, and because I’m so particular about the ‘shot’ I no longer mix in iPhone shots or in the moment pics. I worry they’re not good enough (by my standards) and sometimes I just don’t think they look great. In the last year or two I’ve done the real time on my stories and kept my feed for sharing my photography - which by the way is still all real and documenting my life and travels, but simply shot with my camera and not a phone! BUT here’s the thing! My Instagram doesn’t grow. And I know that more and more people are preferring accounts and content that are just super understated, phone shots, everyday goings on. I personally love those accounts too, and I also love and follow a whole load of photography accounts! I guess what I find hard is, knowing where I fit in and where I should take things. My blog started 6.5 years ago as daily outfits and when instaaam started I used it for mirror outfit shots. As time went on, my blog evolved and my photography improved, everything got more professional and I used my feed to tell the stories of my travel and show pretty pics of my life, outfits, home etc. That’s where it is today, what I need help is on where I should take it tomorrow? Keep doing what I’m doing? Because I like it and clearly a few other people do to. Or cut the perfection and just let loose a little, because that’s what you guys want? It’s so hard, part of me wants to do both but on different accounts haha. What do you guys love and what do you guys wish there was more of? You’re help is so appreciated 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
Easy like Sunday morning! Picked myself up a couple of magazines (@suitcase & @portermagazine always), I’ve got a cup of tea, chilled tunes playing, and the sun shining through the window! Sunday 👋🏻☀️
