Welcome to my blog – a celebration of simple pleasures, slow living and all things beautiful. I’ve started to realise that the ever-increasing pace of life sometimes makes it hard to enjoy the small stuff, to think creatively, or to open your eyes and notice something wonderful. So, I began this blog to catalogue all the things that bring me a little bit of joy. When I first started writing it I was working for the brilliant ELLE Decoration magazine, now I’m a freelance writer and I’m training to be a yoga teacher… but the despite the change of scene, the motivation stays the same. In this fast-moving, mass-produced, cut-throat world, it’s nice to fill your life with things that evoke emotion, offer freedom, have meaning, or bring comfort… whether that’s getting out in the fresh air, curling up with a great book, eating a home-cooked meal with friends (and buckets of wine, obviously), or discovering a cosy cafe, a new artist or a beautiful handcrafted find. As Mahatma Gandhi once said ‘There is more to life than increasing its speed’, and I hope that in slowing down and sharing these things with you, I might bring you a little joy as well.
Thank you very much for reading, Tessa x
