In Bed with Blair Waldorf

Last Tuesday I woke up with a mutant head-brain-body ache which quickly progressed into full-blown Female Flu, which everyone knows is quite serious and would leave any ‘I’m fine, I’ll just take some Beechams and sleep on the train’ naysayer bedridden.

So much of last week was spent cosseted in Orla Kiely sheets, eating ice cream and watching Blair Waldorf and friends take Manhattan.

Despite feeling like standing in the shower might actually be the end of me, I still got up and dressed every day. I hate lounging about in my PJs and welcomed the chance to wear my favourite Sick Person Uniform – an oversized knit and leggings. Stylishly soldiering on in the face of flu-based adversity – I know, I’m a modern day Joan of Arc.

When I started to feel a bit better (which coincided with finishing seasons 1 and 2 of Gossip Girl… ain’t nobody got time for season 3) Home Alone Hysteria set in so I staved it off with an impromptu bed-based photo shoot. MUCH easier than lugging my tripod down the street, let me tell you.

I’m wearing a Whistles jumper, Uniqlo denim leggings, Primark socks, one necklace from Whistles and another from Etsy and a Cos ring. My bed is wearing Orla Kiely sheets via TK Maxx, a Scottish Wool blanket also via TK Maxx, Ikea cushion and fairy lights, Next wooden bunting (on the beam) and a silver stag head, which was another TK Maxx find.

What do you wear when you’re feeling under the weather?



Those pictures are so lovely! You look really pretty ๐Ÿ™‚ Haha I love Gossip Girl, Blair can be really bitchy but sometimes it’s necessary ๐Ÿ˜€ and the clothes are amazing in that series!

Great post!



I’m pretty much the same- anything baggy and comfy! I act like a man when I’m ill. Lots of whining, “I’m pooooorly” at my boyfriend and feeling sorry for myself. Love your fairy lights! x

Love gossip girl. I did exactly the same thing when I had a cold a few weeks backs, surprisingly i got through season one and two as well… season 3 awaits my next sicky bug. Love these pictures and your duvet sheets ๐Ÿ™‚


No way are you ill in these photos! You look for too fabulous! I’m normally living in my pjs, with a box of tissues superglued to my hand! Xo


Your room is so lovely ๐Ÿ™‚ being ill in a room as pretty as that must do something to aid recovery I’m sure! Also, I wish I looked that good when I was ill (or even when I’m well for that matter haha!).

Looking lovely and not at all like a person with flu!

Glad you are feeling a bit better, I love your bedroom – it is so cosy!


Look after yourself! Although I have to say you’re hiding the flu face very well – I always end up looking yellowy pale with maahoosive dark eye circles. Snuggling beneath such a lovely sunny duvet must help a lot with the symptoms! I can also recommend hot honey and lemon :).


Your bedsheets are amazing, loving the print! Get well soon – though there’s nothing wrong with spending all day in your PJ’s, especially when you’re ill ๐Ÿ˜‰ xoxo


I really need to get my hands on the whole Gossip Girl boxset as I have never seen any of it. Hope you’re feeling better.


LOVING your hair right now AND your specs! Where did you get ’em? Also loving your blog – keep up the good work! ๐Ÿ™‚ x
