Hello, my name is Elizabeth and welcome to my blog, Rosalilium.
Rosalilium is a place to share the huge variety of topics that ‘women’s lifestyle’ encompasses. On this blog you will get to know me, Elizabeth, and those that are wandering alongside my journey through life. I share my favourite outfits because I love fashion and style. I share my favourite recipes because I love to eat and cooking is my therapy. I share my travel adventures because I love outings and discovering the world around me. I share all the bits and bobs that inspire me such as interior design, photography, craft, DIY and stuff. I like stuff. I am a stuff-aholic, also known as a hoarder, collector, thrifter, finder-keeper or lover of surrounding oneself with beautiful things.
Rosalilium is about enjoying life in a honest and mindful way, finding the beauty in the little things and sharing it all with others.
I spend my time writing, thinking, creating, making plans, trawling through Car Boot Sales, dreaming of a better world and cooking….oh yeah, and I’m a bit of an adventurer too.
I love Thai food, tea, pretty dresses, post-it notes and travelling.
I am a bit of a chatterbox, I sing loudly in the car and I am a list-making fanatic.
I do love a bit of an adventure. In 2011 I went on an expedition to the Dominican Republic where I took part in the Green & Black’s ‘Community Development Programme’ to build a gravity-fed water system in a rural community of cocoa farmers. Last year I slummed it in a tent as the Festival Blogger for Alpro at the Womad Festival. And several years ago I carried out my Anthropological fieldwork in Southeast Asia. My favourite country is Burma, which I travelled around in 2009 getting to know the most inspiring people I have ever met. I began to document my Burma travels on this blog and got distracted (as often is the case…) but I will finish writing about my adventure this year.
When I’m not running Rosalilium I am a freelance writer and blogger who dabbles in a spot of photography (my services for all three are for hire if you are interested). In the past year I have written for magazine publications such as Mollie Makes and More. Online my work has been featured on Goodtoknow and Laura Ashley.
On this blog you will find posts about thrifting (I am often rummaging around car boot sales and charity shops), recipes, outfits, photography, fashion finds and pretty things. This blog is about sharing my thoughts and activities and making new friends. It is a place for me to learn and a chance to pin down my ever-expanding list of interests.
