A big fat tick for the bucket list! I finally made it to Museo del Prado to see Las Meninas by Velasquez! It's hard to believe this innocuous building houses some of the world's most prestigious art! #artgallery #bucketlist✔️ #travelling #madridsta #madrid #travelgram #elprado #madrid🇪🇸 #artgalleries #spain #travelog #wanderlust #bucketlist #travelgirl #madridcity #explorenewplaces #artgram #liveauthentic #littlebitsof_life #seetheworld #travelpic #travelphotography #artistic #madrid_best_photos #museo

Back to earth with a bump after a whirlwind trip to Madrid with friends this weekend. I loved everything about this city, especially the squares dotted with people enjoying coffee and good conversation. Oh and the architecture! I can't wait to go back again soon. #travelling #madrid #travelog #madridspain #madridistas #travelgram #spain_photographs #spaingram #spainlove #madridsta #weekendtrip #citybreak #citydays #citytrip #madridspain #explorenewplaces #travelgirl #seetheworld #bookstagram #wanderlust #oldbuilding #arcitecture #travelphotography

I finished this book last night and have been thinking about it since. I have seen this all over Instagram, so I feel like it doesn't need an introduction! . I have never read Kate Morton before but I was really captured by the mystery at the heart of this book. I loved her style of weaving past and present together with a variety of voices. I found myself wanting to find out what happened to everyone instead of skimming sections that didn't interest me. Have you read it? #bookstagram #katemorton #theclockmakersdaughter #booksandcoffee #bookreview #bookphotography #bookish #bibliophile #bookworm #femalescriblerian #bookrecommendations #bookflatlay #bookclub

A perfect autumn day in Durham. Walked along the Riverside with my little brother, chatting about the important things (football, boxing 🙄 and whether autumn is the most beautiful season -guess who chose the topics) he's not the best at giving life perspective and advice..."I don't really know, just get over it." but it really is good to hear that sometimes! #durham #durhamregion #familytime #hometime #river #familyiseverything #autumn #autumnwalks #autismfamily #littlebrother #travelgram #familylife #autumndays #bookstagram #weekendwalks #durhamriverside #riverside #littlebitsof_life #lifeinthewoods #modernarchitecture #brutalism #oldmeetsnew #seekthesimplicity #bestbrother #siblings

Last weekend I officially packed summer away. I dug out my cosy jumpers and favourite vintage woollen skirt (pictured!) Whilst I embrace autumn it's always a little wistful to admit summer is over. Perhaps that's why I have enjoyed A Fortnight in September so much. This beautiful Persephone classic captures the feeling of a perfect family holiday in a way that isn't saccharine or trite. Instead, the way R.C Sherriff presents a ordinary family, with their cares and joys, elevates them to the sublime. It's hard to properly convey how lovely this book was to read, but the Fortnight in September I actually spent reading it has been wonderful 😉 #bookstagram #bookclubs #bookphotography #bibliophile #bookish #bookpic #bookshelf #goodbooks #readmorebooks #autumnvibes #autumnreading #bookworm #persephonebooks #prettybooks #bookaholic #whatimreading #readingisfun #littlebitsof_life

A little glimpse of ancient Ireland! This is the 30m tall tower at Glendalough, one of the most important monastic sites in Ireland. It was founded in the 6th Century by St.Kevin. #ancienthistory #irishhistory #travelgram #glendalough #irelandroadtrip #irelandgram #travelphotography #wicklow #ancientbuilding #oldbuilding #irelandtravel #visitireland #explorenewplaces #ireland🍀 #bookstagram #ireland_daily #littlebitsof_life #lostinthewoods

"I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will" - Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre . . On my millionth re-read of Jane Eyre and I always get something completely new out of it. That's my favourite thing about books, the good ones keep surprising you every time! #bookstagram #qotd #bookphotography #bookish #janeeyre #bookworm #charlottebronte #bibliophile #travelgram #wicklowmountains #booksaremagic #classicbooks #victorianliterature #bookclubs #vintageclassics #bookpic

I love this photo, not because it's perfect, but because when I look at it I can remember how totally happy and content I felt in this moment with the sea air messing my curls into a nest and the Atlantic ocean stretching before me, brimful of sparkling waves... Actually, maybe it is a perfect picture after all! #feelgoodphoto #travelphotography #rossbeigh #irelandroadtrip #irishadventure #visitireland #bookstagram #daysoutwithfriends #travelgram #windinmyhair #adventure #wanderlust #feelpretty #positivevibes #quietinthewild #seekthesimplicity #travelog #embracetheseasons #irelandgram #kerry #atlanticocean

"I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, "This is what it is to be happy." — Sylvia Plath. . Couldn't have described standing on the shore of the Upper Lake at Glendalough better. #blissful #travelphotography #lakesandmountains #lake #glendalough #irelandroadtrip #ireland_gram #irishviews #roadtrip #glendaloughlake #wicklowmountains #sylviaplath #ireland #embracetheseasons #mountain #explorenature #seetheworld #travelgram #inspiring

There's something special about waterfalls. I love hearing the sounds as I walk towards the water. Then, turning a corner and suddenly finding myself stood in front of them. Pure magic. #irelandroadtrip #ireland_gram #exploremore #seetheworld #naturalbeauty #torcwaterfall #naturephotography #travelpic #killarneynationalpark #waterfall #travelgram #explorenature #freshairtherapy #irishgreen #visitireland #bookstagram #waterfallsofinstagram #roadtrip #seekthesimplicity #liveauthentic #littlebitsof_life
