As we approached our 1st wedding anniversary with a three month old baby we weren’t sure if our plans of a road trip to celebrate were slightly ambitious and maybe a pub lunch would suffice. But we decided to brave the unknown and boy are we glad we did.
Now we all know I love finding new cosmetic brands especially natural skincare that’s cruelty free. When I was asked to try Balance Me I was excited in minutes after reading about Rebeca and Clare the two sisters who had created it. Not only did they understand the importance of natural skincare
Well what a rollercoaster that has been. I can’t believe how quickly the last three months have gone but I’m so happy to be back with Wendy on the blog and am really excited with the new content ideas we’re planning for the season ahead. As we’ve mentioned previously we’re not going to become a mummy blog by any means but I will be sharing experiences and advice related to motherhood if I think it’ll be of interest.
We visited Île de Ré on our road trip down through France. It came highly recommended and we weren’t disappointed. This incredible island off France’s Atlantic coast is idyllic. It’s known for its, salt marshes, cobbled streets soaked in lavender and it’s long golden beaches
We love an on-line shop and especially one with a story, Jimmy Fairly is no exception. For Antonin Chartier, the founder, the internet has long been a source of fascination. Beyond changing our way of buying, he was curious to see how far it could go to changing our way of giving.
This week we’ve been binge watching the second season of the Netflix drama Ozark. As nail bitingly intense as season one, Marty Byrde and his family are back trying to survive life at the hands of the drug cartel. Not one to be watched before bedtime if you’re a scaredy cat like me, but a brilliant cast and just as addictive as the first season if not more so.
Everything about Frida Kahlo was courageous. She was a revolutionary and a bold artist. As a child she survived polio, then in 1925, when she was 18, she was in a bus crash that left her with lifelong disability and pain. This exhibition presents an extraordinary collection of personal artefacts and clothing belonging to the iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Locked away for 50 years after her death. This collection has never before been exhibited outside Mexico. On until the 14th November at the V & A.
The Shrimps for Habitat collection launched this week and there are some really fun pieces in the collection. It's quite 'out there' like the fashion brand but great statement pieces to bring the finishing touch to a room. “Inspired by some of Shrimp’s most popular designs, think make-believe creatures, colour clashing faux fur and other-wordly patterns. A signature palette of Shrimps pink and red underpins the collection, punctuated with accents of gold and washes of blue.” We especially love this doodle print rug for a child's room or nursery.
