This is my end of summer and going into the autumn look. Those if I\'m honest, the day we took these photos felt like we were still in the middle of summer and Autumn was just a distant dream. ⠀
I\'m a little late to the linen dress trend that been filling up my Ig feed this summer. Still better late than never, here\'s a linen \'inspired\' dress from Primark. I say \'inspired\' as I don\'t think its strictly a linen dress and its proberbly some cheap knockoff.⠀

With Autumn just around the corner, It got me thinking of September/Autumn fashion and how I\'m looking forward to saying goodbye to my summer dresses and hello to oversize jumpers and cosy cardigan. I\'m trying to reclaim my love for the cardigan, a childhood fave of mine which I have seen to outgrown as I got older. ⠀
Starting with this Sainsbury TU embroidery cardigan which is so lovely to wear. I\'m now looking forward to wearing more cardigan throughout Autumn. Bring it on. ⠀

A couple weeks ago, out of nowhere a butterfly flew into our home. This got me all emosh and I was certain it was an omen - a good omen. My husband just wanted it out of the house, but I wanted to keep it.⠀

This butterfly picture was at London Zoo. ⠀

Viking Shakespeare Evening

Hear Ye, Hear Ye, once an evening upon where words and sonnets were played. A Viking Shakespeare Evening, a fair maiden attended.

Ok, I can’t do poetry to save my life. But one evening in the week I went along to a Viking Shakespeare evening, an event that promised to be filled with sonnets and calligraphy; there was also some songs.

Now I have to admit that I use to be a Shakespeare geek, especially when I was younger. Romeo & Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream were something I would read all the time. I would often visit the Globe Theatre to watch a Shakespeare play and shamelessly I have seen Shakespeare in love more time then I should admit. But yes, while girls growing up was swooning over 90210, I was swooning over Romeo & Juliet. And Yes, it was due to Leonardo DiCaprio.

As I was saying, I went along to an evening that was catered to all things Shakespeare. We were served canapés, and we were taught calligraphy and also how to write a sonnet. The event was at the Bull & Gate in Kentish Town, a pub that has a cosy charm about it.

I have always wanted to learn calligraphy as I love the art-form. It makes handwriting looks so elegant, and I feel handwriting itself is kind of a lost art. I don’t know about you, but I can’t remember I have written a handwritten letter using actual ink.

Anyway, we had a calligrapher who was on hands to help us, mater, the skills. Well, some of the other people at the event were able to master calligraphy – me not so much. My handwriting leaves a lot to be desired.

I think for me I’m going have to watch a few YouTube videos and spend a good hour each week practicing before I can show off my calligraphy skills.

We also spent the evening writing a sonnet. If you are not sure what sonnet are, well it a form of poetry where words are to rhyme, and each line needs to be five words. There more to it – but that’s the basic of it.

I was never a big fan of poetry writing, but I did enjoy learning more on sonnet and how it an easy skill to pick up on. I don’t think I will be a world-famous poetry writer anytime soon those.

Overall it was an enjoyable evening that paid tribute to Shakespeare. The only problem was, I was dead-beat, and I was there in body, but my spirit was somewhere else.  I spent the day running all over London like a headless chicken, so I was a little tired by the evening, but I did have a fun time. It satisfied the Shakespeare geekiness in me.
