Girl Off Grid…

Ok, ok. So not exactly ‘off grid’ as defined by the Oxford English but these past few months I’ve blogged less and less. Until last month… when I didn’t publish a blog post at all.

I haven’t fallen out with blogging or social media in any way. I still get instagram related thumb cramp like the best of them. I’ve just been taking some time back for me and chilling out. Since falling pregnant this time around I can totally appreciate the ‘constantly exhausted pigeon’ meme doing the rounds on Facebook. Read more

What’s Up Gok?

I’m giving my age away here a little bit, but I was an impressionable, self conscious early twenty something in the era of a very special man.

A man that all men wanted to be (ish) and that all women wanted to dress them.

The TV show ‘How To Look Good Naked’ saw me through some pretty rough body shaming times, and circa 2006 gave me something to look forward to watching at night. Read more

Time Flies…

Just lately, I am very aware of the fact that I haven’t been a great blogger. It’s not just my poor Life on Vista Street that I have been neglecting: My emails are mounting up by the day and I have a to do list as long as my arm.

And there in lie the joys of being a hobby blogger: there is no need to panic when life gets in the way. It just means that I’ll have more content when things calm down.

I just keep snapping away with my camera and sometimes am admittedlyย merrily distracted by box sets on Netflix and Bake Off (SIDE NOTE: Anyone else disappointed with the level of talent this year?! Few too many drama queens this year for me too). Read more

The Month of May

I cannot believe it has been a WHOLE month since I set myself some frugal goals for the month and since we last had a real, proper catch up – my word, what a month May has been…

The Month of May written by katie haydock for life on vista street

This month has been a bit of a difficult one by all accounts. A few bits of stress over a few different things mounted up and has caused a few sleepless nights. Our possible impending house move being one of the biggest.

We’re still waiting on a yes or no decision. Long story short – it’s driving us bonkers!

An operation that I’ve been waiting for has been postponed for at least another fourย weeks. Anyone suffering with Gallstones will know why this is a stress for me. I was looking forward to not having to panic about what I eat when I go to London for a mini break for Brit Mums this year. No such luck.ย  Read more

UK Holidays: What I’m Wearing

This blog post is more of a visual aid for me. You see we’ve been to Geronimo Festival at Tatton Park today – we had a great time but more to come on that later – and the weather was phenomenally glorious.

So, SO dry and sunny. I’d love more of the same for our holiday next week… but with us holidaying in Wales this could be highly unlikely.

So without having to shop (because I’m skint) what can I take with me to wear in every weather related eventuality?

Like, if it’s REALLY hot…?

Cotton skirt and vest top:
