In the Bedroom

Sadly I haven’t been feeling well the last couple of days. As with all things Wintry, all sorts of viral infections have reared their heads and I’ve succumbed. Cue a temperature, sore throat and aching limbs. Now, I know I can be a *little* dramatic on occasion, but yes I don’t do illness well. I want pampering, fuss and love. Heck, I want to be curled up in bed with toasty warm toes. So don’t mind me if I head back to bed. This bedroom scene is just too cozy to ignore x

70s Boom!

Everything about this scene just screams the 70s to me. The wallpaper, the orange and brown tones, the chair that just doesn’t look comfortable….that textured upholstery!! Growing up in the 80s, there were still so many 70s references in my home. Our wallpaper was white and yellow in a flock swirly pattern that would send you cross eyed. The carpet was orange and brown until my parents took pity on us and mercifully switched it out. Our clothing was polyester (shudders) and purchased from C&A. I don’t feel like we completely left the 70s in my home until the late 80s. Honestly. So, I look at this scene, grab a cookie (also orange and yellow – how 70s!) and contemplate my life since then. Thankfully there are more breathable fabrics in my life but I do miss the simplicity and how, in my innocence, I truly believed anything was possible. Even the colour clashing of the wallpaper and carpet ❤

On the Red Carpet

As an avid moviegoer, I always look forward to Oscars season, trying to spot the movies I’ve seen over the year that hits the “mark”. There are plenty to choose from this year; the most memorable for me currently is Joaquin Phoenix’s acting in Joker. Wow. There’s no other way to describe it, other than being mesmerised at the screen for two hours as we witness one man’s descent.

On the flip side, I also look forward to the Razzies, also checking to see which movies I’ve seen (or thankfully haven’t seen), are on the list. I’m sure I’ve seen a few of them, and there will be more to come. Half the fun is just sitting back and thinking “wtf am I doing here?” But that’s the fun of the cinema. It’s supposed to whisk you away to somewhere new.

Once again Trunk Show & LANA have delivered, and while my gown here is pristine, there is a bloody version available too. Perfect for any upcoming Halloween parties, so enjoy! The Trunk Show is on for another couple of weeks, so there’s time for a browse x

Vintage Feels

I love creating a mood with my clothing inworld. Time and time again I come back to the 50s to create a style, whether it’s for costume/dress up or for photography. Growing up, I used to love watching Doris Day movies, partly for their era and partly for the clothing. I can’t remember any of those movies now, but I do remember beautiful clothes, perfectly coiffured hair and red lips. Nowadays I wouldn’t choose to live in the 50s, but I smile when I think about 10 year old me, loving those movies.

In the Farmhouse

While Autumn is closing in here in the UK, this weekend has glorious sunshine and I intend to make best use of it. Some lazy relaxing in the garden is a must before the week begins again. I like to think that this scene, while containing some Autumn/Fall inspired items, retains a warmth and an Indian Summer feel. Perfect to just smile and relax with. As always, our Home and Garden Designers spoil us with beautifully textured creations – I could literally reach through and bite into that apple! On that note, it’s time for a snack.

NomNomNomNomNom….

Don’t judge me. I love food lol. There’s definitely something about this BBQ scene that just makes me want to reach through my monitor and have a nibble. It also reminds me of warm Summer evenings, drinking a cider and sharing good conversation with loved ones. I don’t think that’s a bad thing to be reminded of as the days draw in. I hope this picture brings you happy memories too. If not, perhaps it’s time to create some? ❤

It’s just a quick little hello from me today. I hope your week is going well and it’s sunny where you are. It’s been glorious today, which for the UK is always much needed. Sadly, I was stuck in the office looking out of the window wishing I was drinking a cocktail in a pub garden. Alas, not today. But soon – we have a bank holiday coming up, after all \o/
