Here & Now…

I know, I know! I’ve only just returned from a week in Marrakesh, BUT….. But, right now, I wanna be lying by this pool, feet skimming the surface of the water as I sip a cool lemon & mint juice.  I want to feel the heat of the Mediterranean sun on my back as I read a few chapters from my book. I’m not fussy about which country I am in, or where this pool is. It’s the mood and

Here & Now // healing plants…

It’s been a full on week.  A weekend full of family visits, 40th Birthday celebrations. Then travelling Eastward to Hertfordshire to my dear Nana’s funeral.  Then home to celebrate Charlie’s 10th birthday. Emotions of extremes.  Sobbing openly in the church during my nana’s service, then talking about her life, childhood and memories with my cousins and family.  Both traumatic and uplifting at the same time.  Bittersweet. Then to hurry back, full of smiles to celebrate Charlie’s milestone birthday.  My big

Enchant – here and now…

Right this moment, I want to be here, smelling this beautiful bloom.  Here and now… Just lately I am drawn to moody, ethereal images.  Floral blooms, light and shade, and leafy plants.  I long for warm summer evenings, walking around at twilight with the heady scent of roses in the air.

Here and now…

Green!  In every sense of the word.  My kind of place.  After spending a week in a beautiful volcanic environment, I have been craving lush green leaves.  Just look at these beautiful plants, it looks like the photo has been taken in South America or the Med region.  That cactus! This image makes me very happy indeed!  See more of my Botanical posts over on Pinterest. Lou ArchellLou Archell, a writer, photographer, stylist and founder of Littlegreenshed.  A UK lifestyle

Here and now – January…

A touch of the enchanted, magical and other wordly. Colours are faded jewel tones.  Interiors which have a lived in, eclectic feel.  A treasure trove of delights.  These are the things that are inspiring me this month – here and now… All images via Pinterest… Lou ArchellLou Archell, a writer, photographer, stylist and founder of Littlegreenshed.  A UK lifestyle & travel blog Lou is also a busy mum of two amazing boys and the founder of Sisterhood Camp – an annual

​ Image via Pinterest A new thing. Going on a feeling. An instant emotion. I want to be here and now… After months and months – perhaps even years, of feeling misplaced.  I am on the journey of new discoveries.  And so to mark this, I’m starting a new series on this blog called here and now. A shoot from the hip post of what is inspiring me, places to be, or perhaps it’s where I already am.  A feeling,
