Memories, Marshmallows and Mohair Sweaters. These are a few of my favorite things….


Autumn is finally here and my heart is filled with glee. For the leaves are falling, the nights are longer and the Moon has the winter roar that gives a little spookiness at night.  Oh yes my favorite season has finally arrived and I am embracing all that it brings .

AUTUMN WOODS

by James S. Tippett

I like the woods
In autumn
When dry leaves hide the ground,
When the trees are bare
And the wind sweeps by
With a lonesome rushing sound.
I can rustle the leaves
In autumn
And I can make a bed
In the thick dry leaves
That have fallen
From the bare trees
Overhead.

Autmn loves

Its time for hot water bottles to warm our cotton sheets for hot chocolate and marshmallows and for watching family movies on the weekend in the comfort of your home. Yes. Autumn brings all the things and a little bit more.

Autumn park leaves

Long walks and casual glances along the way, the fallen leaves are a symbol of the changing lives and all that nature brings. For me its a time to focus on finishing the year with great achievements. To look back and reflect on my accomplishments, resolve with my failings and focus on new beginnings .

open fire

An Open fire is an essential for any autumn setting, it’s the cosiness and warmth that makes one feel safe and secure. The crackling of wood  the array of red, yellow and blue colour, all adding to the overall effect of tranquility and relation.

marshmellows the melted marshmallow filled their hearts with glee, for in the moment everything was as perfect as can be

And with this post I wish you a farewell, for Autumn is the season when all will be well. So have faith in the changes you are about to see, for they are the ones that were always meant to be.

Loving you, loving me.

It will be all White.. Part II


Morning Beauties.

I hope everyone slept well and had a fabulous Saturday whatever you did.

It’s a beautiful day in London, the sun is shining and the weather is hopeful! I always feel a Sunday well spent with the family always gets me ready for the week ahead with vigorous enthusaisum. Sunday dinner is already on the go, meat slow cooking in the oven, children running round with Nerf guns and the dogs are snoring after a healthy breakfast. Yes, I would say I have the best life and I appreciate every moment.

I bring you texture, contour and movement. White brings everything to light, a freshness and purity that feels youthful with grace. These images for me are dreamy and enriching. I hope you enjoy and start dreaming too!

We are all individuals and with that I bid you all a Happy Sunday, laugh a lot, eat aplenty and prepare for the week ahead with much expectations that all will be alright in the world.

Loving you , loving me always xoxo

‘Blue note’ Winter Blues are coming.


What is Blue? Is is cold, moody or simply misunderstood. 

Blue is the huge sky

When it’s not raining.
Blue are the spots on a robin’s eggs
And on blue jays bodies.

It is sad and gloomy.
Tasty, as blueberries
And the inside of a blueberry pie
Both are blue.

Blue is an emotion
I don’t want to feel.
There are blue forget- me- nots
And violets that grow in beautiful gardens.
Blue is a color in a colorful rainbow.
Blue is one of the most lightest
And darkest crayons in a box of crayons.
The deep sea is blue, too.

Life Vivid              Miffed

A Day to be inspired and refresh. Sundays are Bliss


Beauties…

Its 16:48 in London and I’m wrapped in my onesie, sipping a freshly brewed cup of Columbia’s best coffee. The essentials are within reaching distance, remote, laptop, ipad, nibbles and Columbo in the background solving a case. To me this is the perfect way to spend my Sundays. So far I have managed two bathroom visits, one break for lunch and opening the front door once to welcome from God. He gave me a leaflet and literally begged me to visit his church, and I’ll leave that right there!

I also put this little combo together.

The kids have all but abandoned their home, boys staying at Dads and daughter locked in her cave upstairs, browsing for shopping she swears she cant afford, but yet the deliveries keep coming. But for all the Prada, Gucci and stuff in the world I wouldn’t change a single thing. Well, I might introduce a chef and cleaner.. and maybe a dog walker for cold days and a driver to get to work. I’ll stop there!

This is just random thoughts I’m sharing. I sometimes get like this just having the need to share some images that captivate my heart and evoke good feelings. So when that happens,I just have to share with you. I hope you enjoy.

The Enchanted Gardens…Wonderlust 


Hello Beauties

It’s the beginning of the countdown till the end of term. I’m trying not to be overly excited by the prospect of a long rest for the Summer. I have to down play my enthusiasm whilst the children are around. They bring one to tears with their sweet voices of ‘Miss I will miss you’.. My heart aces every time. But on a brighter note the weather has had a tremendous effect on ones complexion and overall outlook. I feel full of optimism and have a string in my step.

image image image image image

Summer days should always make you feel alive, happy and full of prospect. One should embrace all that comes, the long summer nights, cold drinks with family and friends and the endless festivals and fairs around the cities. I love Summer and summer definitely love me and I am  embracing it all. So with this in mind I am focusing on my garden and doing an overhaul of everything, out with the old, and in with fresh flowers my bulbs planted for winter and plotting my vegetables ready for Autumn. I found some enchanting images of wonderful outdoor rooms. Some I would love to explore others simply give me an overall sense of glee, complete happiness and peace.. That effect people pay thousands for and I intend to create something similar on a much lower budget.

  

I love flowers and this outdoor garden just does it for me comp,Evelyn.

CHRISTY TURLINGTON IS THE LATEST TO STAR IN MARC JACOBS FALL 2015 CAMPAIGN


SILHOUETTEANDSTYLE

In the most recent images from his Fall 2015 campaign, Marc Jacobs taps legendary supermodel Christy Turlington.The designer reveals the latest from his series shot by photographer David Sims, along with a heartfelt nostalgic message to the fashion icon.

I first met Christy in 1987. Both inside and out, she is one of the most beautiful people I know! Having had retired from doing fashion shows, she had promised me she would “walk the runway” for me when we started up our company. In 1994, she flew herself to NYC from San Francisco keeping her word. In 2003 we collaborated on her Yoga bag, and in 2006 she appeared in our PROTECT THE SKIN YOU’RE IN project. Photographed here by David Sims for our Fall/Winter campaign…my friend, the incredibly generous and absolutely gorgeous Christy Turlington.
