In the moment.

Changing my mind. Vanilla. Burnt toast. The scent of just blown out candles. Little Beatrix trying to steal my socks.

The soft violet, peach and blue of the sky at dusk in midsummer.

Recently read
My Name is Leon by Kit de Waal + Like a Mule Bringing Ice Cream to the Sun by Sarah Ladipo Manyika.

Currently reading  
M Train by Patti Smith + Born on a Tuesday by Elnathan John.

Next on my reading list
A Reunion of Ghosts by Judith Claire Mitchell.

The people you love become ghosts inside of you and like this you keep them alive - Robert Montgomery. 

I am
A night owl who wishes she were awake to see a few more sunrises.

On my mind
Edinburgh, where I first felt truly alive and New York, where I last felt the same. Everything I've been meaning to start, but haven't. Soon, soon.

Listening to
Antony and the Johnsons, always.

Purchasing recently
Pomegranates, poetry + an array of overpriced hay for Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrix of Bunnington because she demands variety. A lot of variety.

Wearing most days
Leggings + jumpers.

It's freeing to want to share words. It's okay to not, too.



  1. This was really delightful to read - very relaxing! I would love to see more sunrises too. I love sunsets so much. They are my number one favourite thing to photograph. I've never taken pictures of a sunrise though!

  2. Great way to capture a snapshot of the day. I wish I saw fewer sunrises, bring on Easter week end.

  3. Pomegranates, there's something I haven't had in a long time! I'm a true night owl too, I always feel more creative at night <3 xxx

  4. Love this snap shot into your mind. That's a really lovely quote. =^-^=

  8. Oh I love this idea for a post! And yes I have basically been living in leggings and jumpers recently, so comfy!

  9. I'm up to 5 pairs of leggings now (and that's only cos 2 pairs got holes in them or I'd have more). Not even sorry. They're the soup of clothing. They make me so comfy. Adding a jumper on top just completes it, don't you think?

  10. Jennie, I love these posts - theyfeel intimate and like we have such an insight into what you're up to right now. Hope you're well! xx
