not another bill...

Every time I hear the words "You've got post" I do a little groan. Great, another bill, another appointment I need to make at the doctors/dentist/opticians, another piece of junk mail I don't care about. So when I came across the concept of 'Not another Bill' (found via Jackie Magpie) I couldn't help but smile.

Ned Corbett-Winder (a graphic design graduate) came up with a gift-finding service which delivers a little surprise package a month to subscribers. These gifts come from creatives from all walks of life and range from incredible silk scarves, pocket sundials, folded maps in marbled envelopes and even pieces from a collaboration with Tatty Devine jewellery.

A fantastic idea executed with exceptional style- who wouldn't love this?

le pin

Lately I have become ever so slightly *ahem* addicted to Pinterest.... 

(and yes, I know, I was a little late to the party)

I can't help myself- I'm pinning and re-pinning all over the shop, it's the loveliest distraction from the hum-drum of the everyday. Finding it really helpful to figure out what looks I want to try out, but also, I just love looking at pretty things! I've always had a love for aesthetics and imagery and Pinterest feeds my obsession for all things beautiful.

Here is a selection of my recent 'Style' pins, follow me here to see the rest :) anyone else on here I should be following?

here comes the sun....

The past week I've been lucky enough to soak up the sun in Spain with my boyfriend for a well deserved holiday! We were both in need of a break from work and the miserable weather in England so we packed our bags and hi-jacked his mum's villa in Alicante for a little sun, sea and sangria!

Highlights included....

Horse riding through fruit orchards

Using my rather rusty A Level Spanish every day

Discovering some amazing new Tapas dishes including aubergine crisps dressed with honey (YUM)

Seeing the Guadalest falls

Buying delicious local wine at 2 Euros a bottle

Plenty of sunbathing time

Getting lost in my new book (Harukai Murakami's 1Q84)

And taking in the amazing sunsets at Alicante Harbour 

I'm now back in the UK and sadly, back to reality. I'm feeling incredibly refreshed and rejuvenated however and ready to take on work, life and even the Autumn weather!! I've held onto this 'new beginning' feeling with a few new season fashion purchases which I'll hopefully get around to blogging soon :) 

Did anyone else manage to grab a little sun abroad?

hi honey, I'm home...

It's been three whole months since I last blogged- my excuse? Same as ever I'm afraid.... life. In the last couple of months I have flown to Poland for a wedding, eaten in many a pub-garden, been to a festival, drank one too many strawberry & lime ciders and watched films under the stars at Somerset House. All in all, I've been having a blast and, (to be honest) not giving blogging a second thought. The last couple of weeks I've had a little free time to catch up with my favourite blogs and it made me realise how much I miss writing my Limbo posts. 

With it being September and seeing all the kids going back to school, it's given me the urge to come back to blogging. And to start a-fresh. I want to take my blog back to it's roots- lifestyle. I don't want to make any promises, but I'm hoping this is going to be the start of a new Limbo. I know I have probably lost any readers I had over the past couple of weeks, but those who have stuck around, I hope you'll bear with me :) and keep reading, as I have so much more to tell....
