Changes!


Well this has been a long time coming! After months of deliberation and stalling we are finally back to blogging. This year has been filled with some of the most wonderful and heart breaking experiences for both Aimee and myself. We have seen friends get married, relationships end and new ones flourish. We have been let down by those we trusted but at the same time have come to treasure those people who hold a truly special place in our hearts. We are sorry we haven't treasured our readers in the same way, but with so much going on it has been incredibly hard for us to focus on creative matters and bring you anything exciting or inspiring! However hopefully this is all about to change and we can continue to keep this blog as a positive, light hearted and creative space to share with you the things we love and the places we travel.  Below are a few images we took messing about in my new flat in front of my partners 1965 Hammond Organ we recently received from a generous soul on FreeCycle. They are just some simple photos to show you that we are both still alive and well, paired with a few paragraphs filling you in on the changes this year has brought us. Note how long Aimee's hair has got!

After 6 months of bitter unemployment I finally found myself a job thanks to my good friend Sophie Von Der Goltz. I have now taken over her position at a contemporary art gallery in Mayfair. Although the contemporary scene isn't really my bag it is all part of a grander plan to gain experience in the art world to then apply for a scholarship to study a MA in Art History next year. In July after 9months of living in what can at best be described as a glorified squat, Aimee and myself moved out of our joint house. I am now living in a beautiful flat with my partner and cat in Stoke Newington. As much as our old house was a shit hole, I do miss coming home to Aimee in her Pj's with the kettle on. At this present time I am happier than I have been in years. My self esteem is no longer non existent. I have learnt not to stress the little things and to find happiness wherever I can.  I have a garden I have planted, I have stopped bleaching my hair, and I haven't shaved my legs in about 4 months. Life is fantastic.

It is difficult to put time into words, I think much of the past year has been one of the most difficult periods of my life. It has certainly held the most changes. I have experienced a hell of a lot, new homes, friendships, health changes, relationship status's and have also been really focusing on my work life. My life is still in a state of constant change and that's fine. Change is good.



Love from Harriett & Aimee

  19. Hello gentlewomen, I would have a question:
    How do you do to find such beautiful clothes on eBay? Do you spend hours on it or do you have special tricks?
    Otherwise, you're such beautiful birds.. :)

    1. Thank you <3 ! I work for a gallery so spend a lot of time on the computer researching, so I constantly have ebay open. I hate to say there is no special tricks just a hell of a lot of scrolling.
