Outfit Post: Cactus Love in Taormina, Sicily

Denim Shirt Outfit Ideas

Oh my heart, we finally got to see some of Sicily for my 30th birthday and it was beyond epic. Stu booked me a surprise trip for my birthday and I have no idea how he did it all and managed to keep it a secret until the afternoon of my birthday… not to mention how insanely well he knows me, I’ve wanted to go to Sicily for so many years and it did not fail to live up to the amazing picture I had painted of it in my mind!

We stayed in Catania and heading out along the coast one day to explore Taormina, a breathtaking cliff top town. It rained all morning while we were travelling, but as we started to make our way through the amazing village on foot the rain started to dry up and it turned into a gorgeous day, even if my feet were a little soggy!

As well as being stunningly beautiful, the mountainside of Taormina was covered with cacti, the perfect setting for some cactus love and to try out the new sample of my brand new Cactus Marquee necklace! These will be available in my Etsy shop really, really soon along with some other brand new designs. If you want to find out when they’re available, you can join my mailing list here:

This lovely worn and weathered staircase, wrapped in greenery was hidden away at the bottom of a whole bunch of steps down from the main town and had the more incredible view of crisp, turquoise blue and fresh, lush green. I could have stared off over there forever. I’d love to design a piece for my garden, when the summer comes, that reminds me of this spot. I’ll definitely share it with you guys too!

My Home Office – Organising My Orders

My Home Office - Organising My Orders

Keeping organised in my home office is an ongoing challenge! I look back over the years as I’ve grown from the living room floor to the kitchen table, to a tiny spare bedroom to my current office which is a big double bedroom sized room and I wonder – how on Earth did I manage to keep organised back then, let alone now? I remember one Christmas working from a giant cardboard box as a makeshift table because I just got way too many orders to fit in the kitchen. It’s nice to look around my pretty, colourful home office now and feel somewhat more settled, haha.

How To Organise Etsy Orders

Organising my orders is one of the most important parts of my business. I have to keep them in sight, safe so as to not lose any customer information and I have to be able to separate the ones that are ready to be shipped, from the ones that need to be made, from the ones that have just come in. I’ve tried loads of different ways to keep them, but this wall unit from IKEA is by far my favourite. I’ve had letter racks before, but they take up valuable desk space of which I’ve never really had much so when we bought our house this was one of the very first things to be mounted to the wall! It’s made of metal, too, so it’s really robust!

I added some colourful flowers to make the area less business and more fun and bright and it sits just below my handmade noticeboard which is decorated with colourful letters too. The table underneath I actually created from a long, thin shelf from IKEA and some table legs as I was looking for something really bespoke for the narrow space – it’s perfect for making a huge batch of jewellery and light enough to move around the room as and when I need extra workspace, but also sits neatly under my windows to create a pretty display when not in use.

So that’s one of my favourite corners in my home office – you can see more peeks into my studio here.
