HOW TO DEAL WITH THE ‘DARK SIDE’ OF BLOGGING

A FEW months ago, I considered quitting blogging. Wrapping my creative baby up and taking her away from the online world. It happens every so often. Four years into Pouting In Heels and I’m well aware that every so often, when things turn a darker shade, I find myself in the ‘should I quit?!’ position.

GORGEOUS SCANDINAVIAN PRINTS FROM DESENIO

I LOVE  a good piece of art. Or a pretty picture. But let’s be honest, it’s not so easy finding stunning prints or art work that is both affordable and easy to frame.

A SERENE FAMILY HOLIDAY IN UMBRIA, ITALY

I FEEL it is only right that I warn you, that this is an EPIC post. EPIC!! Quite possibly, my most epic yet. So before you begin, you might wanna pop the kettle on, make yourself a decent cuppa and get comfy. Because let me tell you, this post is a biggie. Such a biggie in fact, that it’s taken me almost a full working day just to whittle down
