What blogger worth their salt doesn't love flora in some form? We are celebrating Julia de Klerk's fantastic jewellery with some mega floral on floral. And we get to spread the love with a little discount below for our readers. Simply enter 'WARDROBE' at the checkout for 10% off your order this month. (That means I can buy two pairs, right?)

At first, I thought this outfit was quite a meek one. Bizarrely, both Helen and I paired our earrings with floral Monki outfits but, after months in bold colours, I didn't realise how punchy this look is. I'm not sure any look could be mild with these incredible Julia de Kerk Wiggle Earrings to be fair, which are happily the perfect match for my glasses. I love an accessory power couple! I picked up this Monki dress when we were in London for Blogtacular with the notion that I could wear it in the colder months for a more subtle nod to palm leaves... It actually has quite a print on it! It's also a bit gappy and flappy so I may have accidentally flashed some dogs in the park. A quick little needle and thread between the buttons and some leggings will sort that out for winter though. Now, what else can I wear this winning glasses/earring combination with?!

Earlier in the week, Helen was talking about what a plant murderer she is. I, on the other hand, love growing plants. Especially edible ones. I must admit though that I'm sort of a clueless gardener. I like the idea of it more than I have any knowledge about it. Nurturing little living things gives me so much pleasure and I'm a bit of a Phoebe Buffey in that sense, picking out the withered and sad seedlings to attempt to revive them. I laughed so hard when my dad once kindly bought me a plant that was so poorly and dry that when he handed it over it just keeled right out of the pot. It was plain dead.

For part of my twenties I lived a bit of a slow life, outside the city, and I had apple trees and grew veg and had a dog. You don't realise that you spend all year growing these things and then suddenly have a hundred to eat in a month before they rot. My entire cauliflower crop was devoured by caterpillars days before I harvested. I loved my misshapen peppers but I tired of beetroot for years after a particularly strong yield gave me too many to find recipes for and I'd give crates and crates of apples away each year. I discovered that making chutneys and preserves just ain't my thing but my neighbours would just help themselves and give me jam in return. I can't decide it I miss it or not.

Now I have no private garden so I keep a sizeable kitchen herb collection and a few other plants dotted around the house. I must admit that I can't resist picking up any drooping succulent I spot, so my bathroom is full of them. They just do their own thing and require no attention. I send Whatsapp updates of my plant babies to at least two plant-loving friends (like Salima from my Scottish road trip post). Let me know if you want in the loop.

Helen did not appreciate my Really Big News that my orchid was back from near death and sprouted a second spike. What is the matter with her?!
