The Amara Interior Blog Awards 2017

Over the past couple of days I’ve been sharing the fun I had in London, but obviously there’s a pretty big reason why I was there in the first place, the Amara Interior Blog Awards 2017. When I was nominated for the awards I was thrilled and flattered, but never in a million years did…

London, Part 2: Out and About.

I managed to squeeze more than I expected into my short trip to London, this included some mooching around the shops, in particular the beauties that Stoke Newington had to offer, and boy what a treat they were. The day of the Amara Awards we decided to explore the local area, to slow things down a bit…

London, Part 1: House

When I found out that I was through to the shortlist for the Amara IBAs I basically wrote off the idea of being able to go to the Awards Ceremony, much to my disappointment. It was during half term and I couldn’t really afford/justify the cost of travelling up and staying in London, I had…

Blooms and Babes with 3acre Blooms.

I had such a fun morning today with some lovely ladies, a much needed treat after the worst night in years, Nancy and Eula clearly conspired to tag team throughout the early hours, resulting in me having less than 3 hours broken sleep. Have kids they said, it’ll be the best thing you do with…

Farewell to the holidays.

Today we went on an adventure to Looe Island, a promise I made Nancy last November. As we pulled our coats tightly around us, breathing in the fresh chilly air, then seeking out Hot Chocolate to warm our frozen fingers, we made a pact that we would have a Moomin style adventure come the warmth…

Vintage Antiques Fair.

The girls and I went to an Antique/Vintage Fair today at The Royal Cornwall Showground, Wadebride. I couldn’t help but take some snaps of the treasures we explored and I thought I’d quickly share some of them with you, as I attempt to get the small people to sleep… I have a thing for old…

Beautiful blue.

I thought I’d share some of my snaps from today, because it was kinda a bit beautiful. After delivering my turquoise chair to it’s new owner we had planned to head to Treyarnon which was close by, but road works scuppered that plan, so we headed to Crantock instead, tough life isn’t it! I’m pretending…

Visit Cornwall. A guide, according to my Instagram.

Recently one of my followers asked me for some suggestions of nice places in Cornwall to visit whilst on their holiday, this is something I get asked quite often, so I thought I’d write about it here. My mind started to whirl with all the wonderful places in my home county and I wondered how…

Half term hang ups.

Oh look, I’ve neglected the blog again! Life went up a gear or 5 in the last 2 weeks, I’m trying to get more jobs finished around the house, I’m very good at starting projects, pretty useless at seeing them through until total completion. But there might be something in the pipeline which has spurred…

Beating the boredom, discovering new favourite places..

So, up until today my overwhelming feelings about 2017 so far has been boredom. I realise we’re only 6 days in, but hey, that’s me! But today has broken that mood, I’ve had such a lovely day with Eula and our friends and I wanted to share this beautiful place we visited for the first…

Creating Christmas traditions.

One of the wonderful things about having children is how Christmas is reborn for you in your parent capacity. The responsibility for creating the festive magic has passed to you and a good dose of that can’t help but rub off onto you too. Last weekend we went to Trerice, an Elizabethan house so full of…

Trees and frolics.

Today we bought our tree, a little earlier than usual, but Stu’s shift pattern coming up won’t allow much tree perousing so we decided to get it sorted today, whilst enjoying the beautiful sunshine, then take our time to decorate over the coming week. I have such fond memories of my Dad and I setting…
