Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog – it’s lovely to have you. I hope you’ll brew a cup of tea, settle yourself in a cosy seat and enjoy losing yourself in the archives.

I started Miranda’s Notebook as a way to document all the small delights that bring me joy and add some luxury to my everyday life. A long, relaxing bubble bath, walking through a bluebell wood in the spring time, hot chocolate and an un-put-downable book on a cold night, a thought-provoking conversation…these are the little things that light up my life.

I very much hope that reading this blog will add a little pleasure to your everyday too. You can expect weekly articles featuring my adventures in London and beyond, books I recommend, favourite recipes using seasonal ingredients and interviews with creatives who inspire me.

Alongside writing Miranda’s Notebook, I host the lifestyle podcast, Tea & Tattle, where I share conversations with my best friend, Sophie, about wellbeing, books, creativity and everything in between. Every other week on the podcast, I interview successful creative women, including best-selling novelists, artists, entrepreneurs, chefs and musicians. If you’re new to the podcast, you may like to start with one of Tea & Tattle’s most popular episodes: All About Hygge; A Chat With Hannah Kent; Minimalist Living; or Creativity and Instagram.

If you’d like to get in touch, I’d love to hear from you! Drop me a line at: mirandasnotebook@gmail.com

  • Nice to see another Miranda bloger (I am usually called Mira, Mia or Myra-(Bev = boo’s name) Love your blog

  • Miranda – I love the artwork on your blog so much! Did you paint the graphics?

    • Thanks very much Holly! I commissioned the illustrations, based on photographs I chose. Unfortunately, my experience with the person I hired to do them was so unprofessional and unpleasant that I couldn’t in good conscience ever recommend them. I am very thankful to have these illustrations as part of my blog though, and I’m so glad you like them too! xxx

      • That’s rubbish. I am saving up some pennies to pay someone to come and do some artwork on my blog. I might ask my friend Kim to do it for me though?

      • Yours are so pretty. It really is one of the prettiest blogs that I have seen x

  • Came over today after seeing your comment on my friend Cornflower’s weblog. She and I have known each other for 35 years now and I always take a quick look at other weblog owners that comment on her pages. In your case I think it will be more than a quick look! Love your style.

    • Thank you so much for your lovely comments! I’m so glad you popped over from Cornflower’s fantastic blog. How wonderful you’ve known each other for such a long time! A funny coincidence: my father is a physicist! xxx
