Brining nature in

Vintage woven basket £18

As the weather has slowly started to warm up with blue skies scattered between cloudy ones we have started to spend more time outdoors on countryside walks as well as in our own garden which has been taken over by weeds and is in need of some TLC, something Mr A and I love to do together although this year we are running behind on our vegetable patch but hopefully a few more sunny days and we will be well on our way.

I really love bring nature into the home, especially when it's flowers and produce that has been grown on our own garden. It's made me think about a few bits and bobs I want to pick up, perhaps a flower press, some new gardening tools, a beautiful woven basket to collect flowers in or a vitnage watering can to display them in.

Either way I love all the inspiration that the outdoors can give you and I am really looking forward to pottering round in the garden this summer and hopefully having a fruitful year in terms of produce like we did last season. Here is to Summer

Sporty Summer Style

I am really happy that the trainer trend and sporty style seems to be sticking around for a while as it's not both stylish but also very comfortable and perfect for when your spending a whole day running around a city centre or city park. The great thing about sportswear is that in generally they are very well made and robust which means they can last season after season and you can also mix and match trainers with more formal dress which was seen at London Fashion Week this year as well as popping up a lot in Street Style.

The thing about sportswear is that is doesn't come cheap, although like I said as long as you go for better brands they should last a couple of seasons, although saying that there are still bargains to be found and I have recently come across a site called Stylzz which allows you to search hundreds of brands and then does a online price comparison and finds the best deal for that particular garment, which means possible savings up to 70% - win! I cam across this layered summer dress I have my eye on from Adidas.

I always find spring and summer the perfect time to update your fashion wardrobe and bring in some new styles and colour and the main thing to remember is always to have fun and wear what makes you feel good and what you are comfortable in. I don't know about you but I am really excited about spending time on the beach, in the sunshine in loose dresses and tops and enjoying the warmer season. I am also hoping to be more active this summer, especially after having the baby and wanting to get my fitness levels back up and purchasing some nice new trainers such as the Adidas boost's below or sports design dresses and tops may also inspire me to get moving, well thats the plan anyway.

Happy home & win £200

flowers in the home

So what makes your home a happy place? A long hot bath and a good book, time spent in the garden, the sound of children laughing, fresh flowers in the hallway? Well those are a few things that brings happiness into my home and making our home a happy and positive place has never been as important as since we have had children as we want them to have fond memories even if we are planning to move again.

The one thing I do have love having in the home is fresh flowers, preferably wild ones we have picked up from a countryside walk and have been thinking I really need to get some better vases for them so put together a little mood board


Pretty vases
I love all these simple vases especially the painted mason jars
