For so long we have huddled up inside in sort sort of human hibernation throughout the cold months (which tends to be half the year in Aberdeenshire). The unpredictable weather has raised my hopes (and the daffodils) quite a few times that spring might actually be here.

When I hit instagram, I hit it hard and there is nothing quite like discovering a feed that you can well and truly get lost in. February’s Instagram crush is one of them. Bright, beautifully styled and stunning fashion…it has to be Emily Inman’s @Brickdustandglitter.
