Alexander the stylist?




I have always admired how little Alexander seems to just ooze cool so have decided to set a stylist challenge for him.  5 days of outfits, picked entirely by him!  Hey why not, school will be finished in a matter of days and there is a mega heatwave here in London.  I pass the baton and focus on evening out my tan....  Photographic evidence will of course be posted.  In the mean time, have a sneak peek at what we have been doing behind the scenes, styled by Alexander of course!

A Modern family and How we Keep Tech Fun and Safe

Photo Credit:
Vodafone Digital Parenting Magazine



The boys and I were asked, by Digital Parenting Magazine, what our thoughts were on the use of technology within everyday life.  We are a reasonably tech savvy family from my 80 year old Grandmother down to lil 2 year old Zach and have used technology to enhance our everyday lives.

The infamous line from George Orwell's 1984

1 year on.... A little courtyard oasis

Comparison June 2013 & 2014

Written on 7th June 2014

Exactly 1 year ago I posted this ...>>>  Taking control of what we eat.  With steeled determination, a collective family help, a lot of love and dubious behaviour on my part (playing jazz and classical music to my foliage); I have achieved a large part of my goal.....  To be surround by greenery/life.
As you read and peruse through the gallery I advise you to listen to: Bachianas Brasileiras, No. 5: Aria (Cantilena).  It adds atmosphere!!

Town to Country Fashion shoot

There is always something going on in the back ground, when you think all is quiet!!

We had a lot of fun shooting on the isle of Anglesey, North Wales.  A regular holiday destination of my childhood, it felt wonderful to return with my boys to the beaches and mountains I once played.

Thank you to all the wonderful people we met and the familiar faces that welcomed us back.
We stayed at the wonderful Plas Llanfair Cottages in Benllech just minutes walk from the beach.  We were very lucky with the weather which stayed relatively dry, great for mid-Feb.  It was a fab week which had us doing everything from beach combing to climbing mountains and exploring castles.  For more pictures check out our Facebook page..

Preparing the Garden; April 2014



It’s that time of year again when you look to your garden/outdoor space.
The sun is shining outside you’ve got a long bank holiday weekend and the shops are having discounted sales.

We have started earlier this year.  Many of our plants and trees and started to bloom a few weeks ago which inspired me to get back out there and get things sorted for the summer to come.

How to Make a Headboard

Floor to ceiling for a Superking bed






I feel as though this post should read how NOT to make a headboard as this was such hard work.  Beautiful idea, pain in the ass to build, beautiful results... Feedback sandwich!

Photo source:  Kelly Hoppen Pinterest page



For months I have popped onto the Kelly Hoppen website hoping 'The Art of Home' online store was open for business.  The opening was announced on her Facebook Page whilst I was out.  I peeked a look on my phone sitting in my parked car and exhaled!
