Passion

MDG-Red-3

I have some of the most beautiful, intelligent, funny, creative, clever friends. Women who almost daily leave me in awe of their kindness, their fierceness, their determination and their drive. Women who kick butt in their jobs every day, who look after their families, who love their friends. Women, in short, who are simply breathtaking. […]

Life

My-Darling-Girl-Life-230315-1

So, turns out it may be Spring, but it’s still stupidly cold. I got excited, almost burnt my fleece lined tights in anticipation of the warmer weather, but Mother Nature just laughed in my face. Back to 4 and 5 degree days. My mother always wants to know what fills my days, how my life differs […]

Paint

My-Darling-Girl-Paint-090215-1

I’ve recently taken up painting. I’m not very good at it, but I love splashing colour across the canvas, trying to make something beautiful out of the incoherent, armature brush strokes. My paintings don’t really take on much form – they’re totally abstract – but I find the process of blending the colours together, watching […]

Ballet

My-Darling-Girl-Ballet-020215-3

When I was about seven years old, I went to Ballet class. Well actually, if we’re being honest, it was Jazz, but the eternal Ballerina in me likes to pretend it was Ballet, so let’s just go with that shall we? My brother was sent to come pick me up in my mother’s old, teal […]

Twelve

My-Darling-Girl-Twelve-190115-1

The other day I stumbled across an old diary of mine. I say stumbled, but really if fell out of my cupboard and hit me on the head while I was looking for another layer to add to my outfit (Michelin Man is so now). Instead of shoving the bright pink, offending book back into the […]

Love

My-Darling-Girl-Sun-120115-1

As the New Year is a particularly reflective time of year, I decided that I would just drop you all a note and say I love you. Each and every one of you. Thank you for standing with me through the first six months of my blog. Thank you for taking the time out of […]
