Wild Child

Although it’s only weeks until the first day of spring, our cold snap continues, driving people to bundle up in their homes, snuggling under duvets while watching movies, thick socks on and the fireplace crackling, or perhaps a fin heater nearby.

I’m currently under an old down duvet given to me by my mother when she could ill afford it, and hence it is very special to me. The dogs are under a furry throw – I decided to tough it out and not get the heater going. And the thing that really helps me while away these dark winter nights is thoughts of summer days soon arriving, and beautiful images from new blogs and instagram accounts I have found.

I’m really excited about a new trend, called ‘flash tattoos’ – generally jewellery inspired temporary tattoos that you can add to your arms, feet, between your shoulderblades. They are fun, flirty, sexy, and go well with current boho summer trends flashing their way through the northern hemisphere.

Pretty bohemian jewellery abounds the blogosphere, too – silver rings with chunky semi-precious stones stacked upon multiple fingers, tiny beaded bracelets and chains. They go well with the ripped and faded denim skinny jeans, white cotton shirts, halters, and maxis, and my current fave trend right now, the open-weave chunky knit cardigan.

The photos above are from my current favourite blog and instagram feed, gypsylovinlight. That is in fact her in the photos. Here is a woman who, according to her ‘about me’ description, has battled depression and other trials but now finds solace and great fulfilment in gathering and styling beautiful collections of jewellery, summer boho clothing, hair, and often, flash tattoos. She has tens of thousands of followers on instagram but still takes the time to answer and talk to people chatting with her on her posts. I love it when people get ‘big’ but don’t forget the little people!
