Break me on the thirty-seventh hour.

White tee: c/o COLLECTIVE. Leather skirt: £13.50, Topshop. Mug: gift (from my brother!), Cath Kidston.

For me, "home" means the Essex countryside. As far removed from TOWIE as feasibly possible (okay, about fifteen minutes drive from Sugar Hut, but we'll ignore that), I often find myself enjoying a good cuppa in the kitchen with whatever book I happen to reading at that moment in time; today's novella of choice happens to be The Great Gatsby. I do like the quiet of home, but I can't help but miss Liverpool's hustle and bustle more than a little bit. I'm looking forward to settling in again, i.e. cramming the heinous amount of clothes I've managed to build up over the past few months into my wardrobe, and catching up with friends I haven't seen for a few months. I hope the rest of you who are coming back from university are returning to homelife just as comfortably, and, if you need it, Yorkshire Tea's currently on offer in Morrison's, and everyone knows that it's the best one out there!


  1. cup of tea and a good book, is there a better combination? Maybe my bed and Miles Kane... You house looks delightful! x

  2. sounds like you're having a wonderful time, I love your skirt! xx

  3. You always have the most beautiful photos Rebecca :)

  4. You live in my sort of ideal country home - what a kitchen!

    I'm liking the sort of 60's vibe here, especially the colouring of the photographs.

  5. Love this post, why is it that every post with a cup of tea in I seem to enjoy! I love that book, read it about a year ago and nothing has compared since! xxx

  6. Wow your kitchen is amazing! (I'm always jealous of someone with an Aga..) And yes Yorkshire is the best tea x

  7. Such lovely pictures! It's always a bit odd going back home from university-- such a mix of happy and sad feelings. But it's always so much better with a cup of tea and a good book. And I'm in love with your oven-- it's so charming!

  8. Looks like you have such a lovely home! This summer is the first summer I'm not going back home to my family so I'm a bit jealous of all those who are! I hope you have a lovely relaxing time after all the degree stress

  9. You have the loveliest home, totally un-Essex! You can pull off a leather skirt like no other too, I am very jealous!
