Just a little snapshot this week of the past few days which has been more beautiful early sunsets, LOVING being The Butler more than ever and party planning for a little lady’s birthday.
What is your intent today? Same old same old? Can’t wait for the week to be over and ‘oh thank God it’s nearly Friday?’… Some days are like that sure… but the more we set our programming to ‘TODAY IS GOING TO BE A GOOD DAY’ or at least in favour of it being positive, I’m telling you, it becomes engrained in your cells and becomes you.
- First and foremost, be thankful for what we have today, here, now
- Stay strong
- Give yourself away, your encouragement, smile, voice of support – uplift others
- On the back of the above, make time for you, if not today, soon.
- Have fun! Don’t be so freakin’ serious, life can be
shitty(Mama I did not swear), yes… but take every opportunity to lighten it up, you’ll feel better and others will too!
- Value every precious moment… EVERY
That is all. X

A few posts ago I promised some pictures of Yorkshire in the Fall… so these would be those! All have been taken rather quickly on a phone, whilst out running my beloved hills as the weather has been so glorious. The rich golden tones of ‘now’ are evident in the sunrise which also has felt much richer since the clocks went back.
It is a beautiful, beautiful part of the world and all the coaxing I need to get out for an hour… what do you think?

Last week James Brindley Harrogate opened their doors for a festive evening. As it started at 5.30pm I thought this a perfect ‘grown-up’ event to take my little lady too. ‘Twas dark outside and a winter wonderland inside with a band crooning away the night we had a really lovely evening!
Knowing that Momma is always taking photo’s for the blog, Miss P asked if she could take a few… I love seeing what she captures!
We were then asked to be photographed for Yorkshire Life Magazine so here’s our best ‘we are pretending not to be aware of the cameraman’ pose!
If you are looking for some fabulous Christmas inspiration, Brindleys is definitely on my recommended list. Although we do not need ANY more decorations come Christmas, we come away with some gorgeous copper baubles and vase that will be out in the home all year round!

Hello it’s been another glorious week and yes we have a NEW NAME – what do you think? Underneath I’m still all about ‘OUR STYLE of LOVE’ and it’s been a wonderful part of my journey but felt LIFESTYLE | YORKSHIRE was more the direction of the future and the name is a little more ‘does what it says on the tin’.
Throughout Summer, I was aware of so many people visiting RHS Harlow Carr… even my daughter went twice and without me! I was told it was awash with Summer flowers and would be an amazing place to go take photos let alone be such an enjoyment. Still I just never got there; summer passed…
One day last week, quite unexpectedly, having gone to meet my sister for another purpose, she said “do you fancy Harlow Carr?” and so with my two nephews in tow, we went on one of those gorgeously sunlit Autumn days that are so rare in their absolute perfection…. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL!
Once the gardens had been explored, it was time to refuel at Bettys (how delighted was I they had a Bettys!) followed by a browse round the very well stocked and surprisingly large book and gift shop. This is the kind of place to take your time, to wander… to take in your surroundings.
Harlow Carr is a must-see if you are ever in the Harrogate vicinity. There is an entrance fee but if you can hook up with someone who has an RHS annual pass that’s the way to go! I look forward to returning in the Summer at the latest as I can imagine it will also be magical covered in frost and snow! You can visit their website here.

It wasn’t intended to have three style-related posts in succession however, the beauty of having a lifestyle blog is that it allows the freedom to go with the flow so that’s what we’re doing!
The colder weather has made me crave the warmth of knit wear. Whilst browsing Zara online at the weekend I saw a LOT I liked so thought I’d share a few pieces (although I literally could have ‘liked’ most of the site)! Zara is one of my favourite brands because so much of what they produce I want to wear… it’s that simple. Let’s get to it:
Can’t wait for my Zara delivery – would love to know what you think of these, leave your comments below ⇓.
