Winter is the best time to be an introvert. ❄️🤘🏻

Loving what they’ve done with the space above Papersmiths in Bristol, the new @two.palms. Now finding myself wanting a collection of crystals which very much reminds me of my 10 year old self. Anyone else collect crystals when they were young? Or now, even? 💎

Cleo and I have been in hibernation mode during these cold winter days. She's cozied up to my knitting project, a winter wool headband. I started this project during the holidays, but think I may need to begin again. As a newbie knitter the stitches are pretty messy though I'm really loving the repetitive meditative process. 😻

When I was sixteen or so, I spent two weeks in St Ives doing work experience at the Tate gallery. I absolutely loved it but it's taken me this long to actually book another trip there. I'm looking forward to a week of blustery days at the slate grey shore, the rasp of sand under my shoes, and waking up to the cries of seagulls instead of the crows and jackdaws in the garden. ⛵️ #mymoodywinter #warmwinterreads #winterwonderlens #bookishhygge #winterwandering #myinstanest #booksofinstagram #booksandcoffee #bookish #bookstagram #finddailyhygge #aseasonalshift #wintermood #travelersnotebook #thiswintermoment #thequietwinter #anaturalmidwinter #aseasonalyear #makingwinter #embracingtheseasons #daysofsmallthings #thiscosycorner #everydaymagic #livefolk #ofquietmoments #calmversation #littledetails #simplethingsmadebeautiful #heiterwinter #mytinyatlas

Sometimes the best food photos are of the simplest ingredients.
This is coconut butter, a slice of grapefruit, and mint on nutrient rich Ezekiel toast.
I snapped this photo with late morning light coming in through my window and edited using one of @local_milk beautiful presets.
The result is simple, cheerful, and bright.
Do you prefer shooting photos with natural light or studio lighting? What studio lights do you like? #spiffyeats @foodforlifebaking #thefeedfeed

It’s been a while since I had the opportunity to read for pleasure, even though I read hundreds of words a day desperately trying to soak in lots of new information. I plan to take some time out soon for some more relaxing reading.

Happy evening 😊
Чтобы никто больше не волновался: гвоздями к пледу не приколачиваю, сам приходит. Питание и гонорар получает исправно. Спит с нами в кровати 🤗 #котя_Бродач #brodach_family

Books before breakfast. The perfect way to start the day. ☀️📖☕️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m just putting the finishing touches on my second author interview of the month. It’s with Dublin-based coauthors under the pen name Karen Perry (Karen Gillece and Paul Perry).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The prologue alone was enough to draw me into their psychological suspense Girl Unknown. It’s got such a beautifully moody style. And their Q&A was so interesting!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We talked about everything from where they got the idea for the book and what most attracts them to the suspense genre, to how it feels to have their book optioned for film.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ll stop fangirling now, I swear! 😂
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you have a favorite mug? A mug that you use more than any other? A mug that makes all the other coffee cups jealous?!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I do! We only have five mugs while we’re in New Mexico, but we have probably three times that in Virginia. Most of them are animals, particularly owls. There’s a gray one I named Owliver (clever I know 😏). I tend to use him more than the rest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Woke up to snow yesterday and was absolutely delighted! So I had to go out and enjoy it before bunkering down to work ☺️ One of my favorite sounds is fresh snow crunching beneath my feet, especially when no one else has made their mark yet! 👣

As part of my word to live by for 2018 - Slow - I thought reading and learning more about poetry will help. I like that poetry kind of forces you to slow down and savor the words, rather than a novel where you find yourself reading with such speed because you're eager to find out what happens.
.
Last year I fell in love with T.S. Eliot. This year I started with Emily Brontë and now have a woman crush! This little selection of her poems was heart-wrenching and poignant. Her most passionate poems were about death, nature, and the passage of time (Perfect for my "Slow", don't you think?) And you can really feel her powerful emotions through a few lines of words. I'm eager to find a larger selection of her poetry!
.
How are you doing with your word of 2018 so far?
.
If you have a favorite poet or poem, please feel free to share them with me to help me with slow living! 😄

It was bright and sunny enough earlier today for me to be tempted out, in a wooly hat and many layers, and start on all the cutting back in the garden, and look what I found! These pretty blue flowers are the first tiny bit of colour I've seen so far this year, just two out so far with a few more buds ready to open, they must be in exactly the right place to get a bit of extra warmth.

It's easy to get wrapped up in our everyday tragedies. It's easy to get upset when something doesn't go our way and get upset at the person in front of us who's job it is to just be that service for those convenient things.
Ordering room service and having a hotel employee unwrap the freshly made food is a massive privilege. I want to remember that I am no different from this hardworking person standing in front of me. They deserve to be treated just as I would want to be treated. Remembering the people who do things everyday, most of which I probably don't even notice, to make my day better is important. Kindness is a part of my goals for the year. Kindness is easily over looked. Kindness is important. (#amonthofkindness, #amonthofkind)

You never know what happens behind closed doors... And James and I decided that we probably weren’t cool enough to see what happens behind this particular door *sigh*

*mindfulness, consapevolezza, crescita e creatività*

Il post di oggi sul blog è sia introspettivo (avevo scritto che sarei tornata a raccontarmi) che un agglomerato di perle di saggezza derivanti da una gita al mare in inverno e dal mio approccio con la #mindfulness nella vita quotidiana.
Mindfulness (semplificando mooolto) è la consapevolezza del presente, del qui, adesso, una forma di meditazione che aiuta a superare i pensieri negativi nella vita quotidiana, ad essere più gentili con se stesse, a recuperare concentrazione e creatività.
La conoscete? La praticate? Cosa ne pensate, la trovate utile?
Io si, la trovo molto utile e non così facile da praticare come potrebbe sembrare, perché siamo davvero molto condizionate dallo stress e dalle preoccupazioni nella vita di tutti i giorni (io poi, regina dei “se” e dei “ma”!) Trovate il link nel mio profilo, sino sicura che trarrete degli utili spunti di riflessione 😌
Vi aspetto nei commenti sul blog e qui se avete voglia di condividerli con me!
