welcome | the ivory tower

As this is my first ever blog post, I feel it’s only right to introduce what this is for me personally and its overall intention. “The Ivory Tower” has connotations of a place of retreat and seclusion away from ordinary things. For me, I want to adapt this as a modern idea. This blog will be my place of retreat to express my interest for various different aspects of my life - including fashion, recipes, fitness and general lifestyle. This idea was also developed over the past year, as I have lived in an attic room in Birmingham whilst I finished my degree. My house mates and I had named this little top floor room "The Ivory Tower" (filled with fairy lights and candles) – and it is over these months that my ambition to create this blog grew. Therefore this name also has a particular personal importance to me! This is hopefully going to be an outlet for me to be creative and share my favourite things especially regarding fashion, but it is also going to be a huge learning curve for me…so I appreciate your support and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! I thought I would start this off with a photograph of one of my favourite things...a cup of coffee!
