Field and Nest

I've been blogging on Kisses and Cross Stitches since I was 22. I was working as a visual merchandiser and had a really keen interest in fashion trends and photography at the time. My favourite band was the Kills, hence the name of my blog taken from their lyrics.

A lot has changed in the past eight years. 

I'm now 30, couldn't really give a stuff about catwalk trends and haven't listened to the Kills since about 2009. I'm a freelance writer, scribing online and offline articles for a variety of journals, blogs, websites and magazines. I work for a lovely interiors brand part time. I love to explore outdoors and snuggle up at home.

I've outgrown this blog, and it's time for new beginnings.

I'll be leaving Kisses and Cross Stitches as it is, so that both you and I can read back over my old posts if we so wish. 

My journey will be continuing on Field and Nest.

Here I will be blogging about travel, adventures, interiors, timeless style, photography, slow living, and anything else that takes my fancy.

I hope you'll join me over on Field & Nest, and thank you for reading Kisses and Cross Stitches for all these years.
