Men are the most difficult creatures to buy for. Well I think so anyway. After many conversations with my female friends, I’m guessing that a lot of you feel the same. With the big day coming up this weekend, I put together a Father’s Day edit of thoughtful gifts for the discerning Dad.
I’ve had this giveaway in the books for a while now. I was planning on shooting all of the images when I returned from Sydney and, we all know what happened then – I moved five days after arriving back. So, the lovely Liora who is bringing you the opportunity to win a Toodles Noodles Organisation Pack has been so patient! In the end I think it’s meant to be because it probably pushed me to get my workspace finished so that I can show you how I use this product in my everyday life. Keep reading to see how you (worldwide) can enter…
I’m not a winter person. I just feel… blah! I need the sunshine and light clothing on my skin. I also go from a bright healthy completion to dull. It’s not necessarily from a suntan, but probably from eating light fresh foods, drinking more water, getting out and about more and just feeling overall more vibrant. I really felt like I needed to give my body a kickstart and my friend Zoe recommended the Little Bird Organics winter cleanse to me. Guillaume was going away for five days last week so I thought I’d give it a go then, so that he didn’t have to put up with my crabbiness. I ordered the three-day pack. I thought I’d share my experience with you.
I hope you had a great weekend. We had the most amazing weather both days and unseasonably warm for this time of year. We managed to pry ourselves away from the sunshine and squeeze some time in to add some more touches to our home. We’re at the difficult stage of the odds and ends that we just don’t know what to do with and areas that need something that we don’t own! Overall it’s coming together nicely and it would have to my favourite place to date. The house is an L shape and the two living areas (or one living area and one playroom) over look the sunny garden.
“Mummy how long are we going to stay here?” That’s what my youngest, who just turned four asked me the other day when she was helping me prepare dinner. I asked her what she meant by that and I figured out that she thought we were staying in a holiday home.
When I relaunched this blog, part of the plan was to have a shop on the site. This would be a place for me to curate my most loved items from my Great.ly store, along with future collaborations and ebooks that can be browsed without leaving the site. I’m please to announce that the Styled Canvas Shop is now open!
I know that I only just got back from Australia, but I need a holiday already! Perhaps it’s the move, perhaps it’s the wet winter weather or all of the sunny holiday images from the northern hemisphere spamming my Instagram feed right now, but I’m dreaming of an escape. It’s an impossible dream, so instead I’m going to revisit my little getaway in Russell, The Bay of Islands from a few months ago.
There’s a lot of talk about small living at the moment and it’s a very valid argument in terms of the environmental footprint that we leave. Living in a small home or apartment can be constrictive, so it’s really important to be clever with what you have and use the space well. Ideally things can be multi-purposed, fold away and designed a little outside of the square. Unless it’s a house catering for a family, most people would have similar needs and because you don’t have the space, doesn’t mean that you have to lack in style. I’ve come up with six stylish space saving ideas for small interiors.
