eat // read // found // explore

Hello! Welcome to my first round-up of eat // read // found // explore. I'm going to try  and make these a regular feature. It's a place to share my favourite new blogs, recipes, places and reads. They are all sites that I find refreshing, interesting and most of all inspiring. Enjoy!

(all pictures taken from my Pinterest boards - from top left to bottom right)


 - always great for appreciating the simple things. My post on stargazing is up this week.

^ The wonderful 

Up Knorth

 blog. A place to gaze upon some Nordic beauty - design, food, diy and    adventures.

^ Simply the best vegetarian blog I have come across recently - 

Vegetarian Ventures

. Beautiful food,    beautiful photographs, all wrapped up in a love of the great outdoors.

^ Another stunning food blog, although not exclusively vegetarian. This is Sini's 

My Blue and White    Kitchen

, a seasonal and Nordic cooking blog. I love how she describes her winter in terms of      flavours.  And so many recipes that I'm looking forward to trying.

^ A book I will definitely be looking to buy come payday. This is

Rock The Shack

, all about weekend  homes and getaway cabins. A place to relax in nature - totally my dream.

^ Following on from that, this 

cabin on the loch

 in Scotland is all kinds of wonderful ..........

^ An Instagram pal Claire has recently started writing a lifestyle blog - 

everything akin

. It's  beautifully photographed and styled and I am enjoying visiting there immensely. She shares some wonderful finds and interviews makers and creatives.

^  Finally Annie's post on 

her Mum's home

. What an amazing collection of vintage treasures! And it  looks like such a welcoming place to live. I have been on the hunt for those  earthenware bottles for ages - I just love them.
