March 2019 – my monthly roundup

Hi again kittens, I know it's already halfway through April, but I have been so so busy! But it's all worth it. So, my month has been filled with lovely food, exploring our new town and watching shows and movies that make me want all of the things. As I write, the sun is shining, I can see the Cotswolds off in the distance and I'm amazingly at peace. Even though my brain has been scrambled a little with information… Read More »March 2019 – my monthly roundup

Update: February 2019

Hello my beauties, I'm staying on the monthly updates, just to give a little insight into what happens behind the scenes here at ohsodelightful. So buckle up, get yourself a cuppa and enjoy 😘 At the start of this month, I was still plugging away at getting gainfully employed, being a holly housewife and working on my never ending sewing pile.

New adventures await us…

Hello beauties, So, you may already know this, but if not I have a huge, exciting and a little bit terrifying announcement to make. It's been a rollercoaster; but now everything (and me) has calmed down a bit I'm ready to share. No I'm not pregnant (being a certain age and female you'd be surprised how many people think I'm up the stick) I don't even know where to start with this. Well, I guess the situation is probably best… Read More »New adventures await us…

Dry set tutorial – Gene Tierney

Starting a new job and moving house has seemed to take over (and I'm still not fully unpacked!) but, now that things have kind of settled down a little I decided to follow a setting pattern to get the style of Gene Tierney.

How to stay connected with Self Care as a couple

Hello my lovelies, Recently, Mr Delightful has started a new job which means that we don't see each other as much. In the week, we are apart and depending on my work shifts, I may also be working Saturday. So, from being together almost everyday, to 3 days a week has been an adjustment. We do talk and facetime everyday, but I thought I would share the ways that we connect and have a little self-care together with you all.… Read More »How to stay connected with Self Care as a couple

Key 1950’s style: Casual Chic

hello my lovelies, As summer is coming up, I decided to cover a casual chic look for my next Key 1950's style. Think about Audrey Hepburn, who managed to look classy and stylish even when casually dressed for strolling around Europe. Many people think that 1950s style is being dressed up everyday, and always being preened to within an inch of your life. But that really isn't the case. A casual chic look is easy to obtain and is perfect… Read More »Key 1950’s style: Casual Chic
