Emily & Fin Pyjama Party


Every so often we all need a good old-fashion "laze about in bed" day, no? The other weekend we had the blog equivalent of that; a "pretend to laze about in bed" afternoon whilst snapping a few sets of Emily & Fin pyjamas for the ol' blog. Once the pictures were done though it was nice to actually be in my pjs with book and mug in hand enjoying that evening sunlight at the sweetest little cottage in the Mourne mountains with nowhere to go and nothing especial to do. We make our way to this little cottage a couple of times a year for a little staycation; the cottage is always equipped for a roaring fire and has no wifi or cell reception so relaxing comes naturally there. I think those are some of the essentials of getting true relaxation--unplug, get cozy (preferably in cute printed pj sets), and if possible light a fire (if not possible substitute fire with candle--Woodwick ones even have a lovely crackling sound that mimics a fire). Also happy to say that I polished off my August reading list with no bother, plus two additional novels, and I'm eagerly been gathering a few more books for my September list. There's also a book fair at a manor house near me in September so I might find something there as well. I've never really kept a record of what I've read before, so I'm looking forward to sharing my list each month and having something to look back on in a year's time. I feel so much more balanced as a person when I'm reading a book; it's funny how you can unintentionally stray away from things you love so much...

  2. I was wondering whether I should keep my fringe or not - love your hair, I'm definitely keeping it now!

    1. I'm always pro-fringe! I think there's so many ways to style your fringe away that there's no reason to actually grow it out; like you can get a no-fringe look pretty easily but it's always there as backup when you change your mind! :p

    1. I actually forgot to link to it! It's from the PommePomme shop--I love it so, although I need an even bigger one! https://www.pommepomme.co.uk/

    2. Thanks for the link! I hardly dare to click on it, as my money tend to fly as the shops fill up with autumn temptations... on the other hand, it's about time to start working on the Christmas wish list, right?? :P

  6. Your reading list: if you haven't read any of the other (dozens of) L. M. Montgomery books, I highly recommend "The Blue Castle." I think you would really enjoy it. It's one of her most adult books and it fits right in with your "quiet in the wild" theme and island living. Her descriptions of the changing seasons and cozy living in a small house are incredible.

    1. Thank you for the suggestion--I haven't read Blue Castle before! And yes, you are so dead-on about the changing seasons; I've just been LOVING all of her descriptions of nature because it just aligns so well with how I feel and how I get such a kick out a seeing a tree in bloom in spring or the leaves changing in autumn. Makes me so happy to be living somewhere with so much nature to see; I love how Anne/Montgomery appreciates it all so much.

  7. I recently began following your blog and have totally fallen in love with it! Your vintage inspired style and lovely photography has inspired me so much. I think it would be fun to begin a blog of my own. There are so many things we have in common my mother says you are my doppleganger.It is actually quite hysterical.
    Thank you so much for the inspiration!
