10 most popular blog posts of 2015

i’m not sure why, but i don’t think i’ve done this before! i’ve put together my 10 most popular blog posts of this year. it was fun looking back on these! they’re not in any particular order, because i don’t think that’s what matters here.

i love blogging, and this year especially i’ve put a bit more effort into my blog and generally sharing my work online. going forward, i will try my best to share even more work, as well as photos and videos.

it gives me great joy to know that there are people out there reading my words and looking my images, and still astounds me that there are even people that come back!

i really hope you’ve enjoyed the blog this year, and hope that you will in 2016 too!

50 blog post ideas for creative blogs - cardboardcities » creative lifestyle blog

it happens to all of us. sometimes you run out of blog post ideas, or you’re running a little low.

i’ve not really seen any blogs with ideas for creative blog posts (those that specifically blog about their creative endeavours, career or work) so i thought i’d put something together with some ideas for all my fellow creative bloggers!

hopefully this post will inspire you to get writing, or even spawns some new ideas!


– pros and cons of university, and/or your experience with it
– ideas and actionable tips to boost productivity
– studio tour (this could be your actual studio space, bedroom, kitchen table or wherever you work)
– favourite books, blogs and resources

serenata flower review + giveaway!

flowers ℅ serenata flowers

flowers! it’s always so nice to have flowers in the home isn’t it. this colourful bunch are from serenata flowers and are called ‘country brights’, and i can very much confirm that they are lovely and bright! country brights consist of: sunflowers, pink roses, purple lisianthus, wheat and tanacetum.

they actually came in a huge bouquet, but as i don’t have a vase big enough (still!) i seperated it into three lots. which worked out well because it meant there’s flowers in 3 rooms! i thought they looked pretty cute in my orla kiely pot.
