Joni Mitchell for Saint Laurent
{Joni Mitchell, the soundtrack to most of my Sundays, since I was a tiny girl}

Doing: A lot of sorting out. I reorganised our flat last weekend, my email inbox is getting tackled, and a whole load of wedding admin has been done this week. I even redid all of the section pages on my blog so that they are filled with pretty images for you to browse through my blog archives (just click the sidebar links to have a look!) It seems the spring cleaning urge has come early this year and I just want everything to be organised, clean and fresh. It feels like it takes a weight off my mind.
Loving: Being busy. I’ve got a lot going on right now and it feels like opportunties are opening up and hard work is paying off, which is an exciting feeling. Life is good and I’m currently feeling pretty fulfilled.
Wearing: My Fair-T Aloha jumper– I posted a photo on instagram if you don’t have a clue what I’m talking about. This was such an ace Christmas present! The fit and fabric and graphic are just perfect and I want to wear it every. single. day.
Daydreaming: of nothing really. I have been focused on getting sh*t done and so I’ve been living life in the present mainly. Not a bad state of affairs really.

Links of the week: 
The situation in Paris has preyed on my mind more than I can tell you this week and if I’m honest, I’m full of complicated feelings on it all. I haven’t always liked the things Charlie Hebdo has published, and I have often been all too aware of the problems that France has with rascism and disenfranchising migrants.Seeing racially motivated attacks pop up all over France in the aftermath just adds more grief to the whole dreadful situation. I’ve tried to read as few ‘news’ articles as possible on it but read as many discussion pieces as I can find. There are lots of calls to arms and lots of people quick to break it all down into simple, pithy statements and amongst all of those, this article feels like quite an important, thoughtful read. We have to stop breaking acts of violence down into ‘them’ and ‘us’, we  have to push for nuanced thinking and an inclusive society. L’amour est plus fort que la haine.

I love this post from Jennie with 9 definitions of blogging success– it isn’t all about those dollar bills

On the lines of getting organised, this printable To Do list on A Pair and A Spare might be the one of the prettiest ways to get down to work.

I am definitely guilty of being sucked into internet speak, captioning images with one word or an emoji and so this article on The Manrepeller- why Fetch happens – cracked me up massively. Gretchen, stop trying to make Fetch happen.

Lists of badass women always make me happy to read and this one has some real corkers. Inspiration for sure. Alongside Joan Didion for Celine, and Joni Mitchell for Saint Laurent, it seems like now is a time to celebrate kickass, intelligent women everywhere

Any homeware addicts, look away now. There are some incredible shops here! I would happily buy up all of the rugs and blankets, if only I didn’t live in a minature one bedroom flat with no spare room for one item more…
