What’s in a name?

It’s a funny old thing, choosing a title to be known as ‘online’, a kind of pseudonym, a mask, a pretence? It’s quite a commitment. When I step into my Alice in Scandiland shoes I become someone who may actually know a little about something, people seem to want to listen, to see what I…

Christmas tree decorations – My top pick.

I’m feeling that festive vibe slowly trickle into our home, my mind is filling with ideas, my Christmas Pinterest board is fit to burst and so I thought I’d share some inspiration with you. I love to support small, independant businesses, so I’ve included several pieces from some lovely ones that I follow. Today I’m focusing on…

The Green Room Cafe

When I was up in London a few weeks ago, for the Amara Interior Blog Awards, I came across the most beautiful plant shop/cafe and I thought you lovely lot would appreciate it… As you enter you’re welcomed by the most wonderful Florists/Plant shop, serious greenery overload.  Mum and I cursed the fact we were relying…

Autumnal wreath – easing into the festive season.

For me I still feel it’s a tad early to be talking properly about Christmas, and yet I’m aware that 6 weeks isn’t actually that long when it comes to planning, ordering and making, but in my mind I need to get Nancy’s 6th birthday done and dusted, next week, before I fully commit myself. …

Outlaw 2017, sharing creative spirit.

Before the summer I was asked if I would like to come along to the November Outlaw Market and run a workshop of some description, the idea excited me and I eagerly agreed, but then realised prepping for it would clash with other commitments, so I had to pull out. However, I could spare the time to…

Lemony goodness loaf.

I made a rather yum Lemon Drizzle Loaf  for my mum’s birthday a few days ago and shared a quick snap on my Instagram stories. I had a fair few people message me for the recipe, so I thought I’d pop it here for everyone to enjoy. It’s super quick and easy to make but…

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…

Party.

I’m sat here, foggy headed from too much wine last night, the girls on my lap, watching a film, all stuffed with cake and just having a lovely lazy Saturday. It’s a rare thing, argument free days, so I’m just soaking it up and enjoying the sofa snuggles. We’re watching Fly Away Home. So, I…

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…

Living Room Revamp, setting a plan in place.

The living room has been in a state of disassemble for weeks now, waiting for this and that, but mostly just for me to get more motivated. This is the room that has possibly benefitted the least from the extension (read lots more about that here). It lost it’s definition and felt a bit like…
