Instagram // Four favourite feeds, February…

This month I have been stalking loving these accounts.  All for a variety of reasons.  From the elegant streets of Paris, to the Swedish islands, to cool laid back California, to peachy blooms in the UK.  I find I am yearning to connect with women across the world, who live parallel lives to my own, or at least I would easily step into their shoes for the day and live as they would. Take a look at these four favourite

Instagram // four favourite feeds

I haven’t shared my four favourite instagram feeds for ages!!  So kicking off 2017 with some of my new found favourites… I seem to be gravitating towards homely feeds filled with family, great decor and warm tones. Plus travel, exciting cafes, city breaks and wandering around new streets.

Creative Juice // Craft the life you want, with Cricut…

I grew up in a fairly large village, near Bristol.  Every summer my Mum would encourage us to enter our arts and crafts in the village fete.  Mum always says… “the Fete needs entries so that it will run again next year.”  She has several drawers at home dedicated to rosettes, ribbons and certificates, and there’s always space on the mantle piece for a winner’s cup, or two.  The fete is still running, and Mum avidly enters categories spanning baking, painting, drawing,

Craft the life // Autumn Manifesto…

At the beginning of the Summer holidays I wrote down our Summer manifesto.  Looking back at it, we achieved most of those things, it was an epic summer.  But now, coming to the end of those few short weeks we have together as a family, I am feeling so distraught, a little anxious that Summer is coming to a close. I am not coping at all well, tight chested and a little panicky about it all to be honest.  I

Craft the life // The Daneway, Gloucestershire…

Sometimes life throws you a handful of fairy dust, covers you with glitter and rose petals and says – ‘hey, fancy living your dream?’ – it really does happen, as it happened to my pal Emma.  You may already know her, she is the writer behind the beautiful blog, Bradshaw & Sons.  Emma, her family (Pete and the boys) have up sticks and moved into a country pub – to fulfil that life long dream of running their own rural

Craft the life // Instagram favourite for June…

Each month I love to share with you my favourite Instagram account.  So last month (June) I was all over this one:  @ophelieskitchenbook.  Yes, it’s another French Instagram feed, I am obsessed, and I don’t see my love affair with the Parisian’s fading any time soon. What I love in particular about Ophelie’s feed is the richness of colour, the dark contrasts and of course all of the food styling shots.  In a world of ‘curated’ feeds, her account looks

SISTERHOOD – Part 3…

Following on from my previous two blog posts on SISTERHOOD, it’s time to catch up on another instalment, this time the afternoon adventures in craft and beach-side frolics. After our amazing lunch, cooked over a fire by Elinor Hill, we all needed time to sit and learn a new skill, in the guise of carpentry and ceramics.  The carpentry was lead by newly skilled in wood craft, Karen Baldry, who over the past year has been learning how to become
