About Me

I’m Alex and I am many, many things. I’m a mum, a wife, a sister, an aunty, a daughter, a granddaughter (to the gorgeous woman in the photo with me), a friend… I am a lover of life; of travel, of food (no surprise there!), of red lipstick, of laughter, of interior design, of craft beer, of books, of gin, of music, of exploring and meeting new people, of craftiness, of the seaside, of people, of talking, of writing and of so many other things… I live in South East London with my little family (one patient husband and one crazy 6 year old daughter) but I’ve left my heart in Scotland *one day I’ll live there*


This blog is about me and my family; about our lives together and our experiences – our travels and the normal everyday things that make up our World. It’s a place where we can share our journey towards a simpler life and a more intentional lifestyle. It’s a place where I can share my honest views, where I can talk about being all of the things that make me who I am – openly and without a filter (because if i’m honest there are so many blogs out there that make my life feel inferior when I read them, and I don’t want to be one of those that only shares the rosy side of things). It’s a space for honesty, for detailing the successes and the struggles and the things that we do together as a family; it’s a space where I can rant when I’ve had a few gins too many and a place where I can share my plans and thoughts and all that random stuff.

At the moment I’m splitting my time between London and Glasgow, am focusing on ticking off things from my Bucket (F*CK IT) list and seeing as much of the World as I can!
