Welcome to Once, A Glimpse a blog written by me Charlie Swift.

Originally from Exeter, Devon I have been living in and loving Bristol for 8 years; where I share a home with my husband Will and our every increasing collection of plant babies.

By day I spend my time as a social media manager, creating content for a variety of clients; my evenings and weekends often revolve around good food and having everyday adventures around Bristol and beyond.

The last year has marked some major changes in my life; I got married, turned thirty, we bought our first home and I recently became a full-time freelance social media manager.

Having been blogging for a number of years under a previous guise, I launched Once, A Glimpse in March 2016 to curate a space that reflects my interests, personality and passions.

As I give a glimpse into my life, I plan to fill this little corner of the internet with beautiful photos that maybe captured on Lomography film or snapped on my iPhone; with wholesome delicious recipes; with stories of adventures had and lessons learnt; with music and playlists; with hopes, fears, dreams… food! Things that inspire me and may hopefully inspire you too.

In-between blog posts you can find me mainly on Instagram & Twitter. Please do say hello, I’d love to get to know ya!

“Slipping under, sliding down
All I need is a certain trigger
The path you take will never make you happy
All I need is a certain spur

Once, a glimpse was all I needed…
