This Months Best Buys.... Prints

After speaking with a friend of mine, I thought I should begin sharing my monthly purchases, I shop in phases so bear with me!

This month I seem to have a penchant for all things printed.
Plain is, well too plain sometimes.

It started with a pair of leggings for the mini boy;
yes, leggings on boys, we LOVE them!

Bathroom Update

I know it's been a while, but I had forgotten to take pictures of the changes made to my bathroom.  The last time I posted on the bathroom I was a little bored with it.

The general outlay was complete but it seemed a little bland, empty.  It is not a huge space and I know it's a bathroom but I felt something was missing.

There in Homesense sat a silver side table for the bargain price of £60!  I'd seen some similar on Pinterest  and had vowed to get one, problem was, when it arrived there was nowhere to put it!  The came that Eureka moment.  PING!!!  "
Why not put it in the bathroom, place beautiful things atop it and a chair next to it."

  And so the new bathroom layout was born.

My husband isn't entirely certain, and, some days if I'm honest,  neither am I.  The pictures on the wall, love, but the obstruction..... hmmmmmmmm, don't tell him I said it!

We've been living with it for quite a few months now and, although it has been useful; its beauty is short lived when my minimalist days kicks in...........

Funny, because as I type, thoughts of its new situation spring into my head!  "That desk in the corner of the living room!!......."

And so the story continues

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

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.

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!!

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..
