-18 degrees




Wow, it is snowing therefore freezing here in the UK. Where my parents live it is -18 degrees C!  So today my inspiration is the humble fireplace, so simple yet so very necessary.

Hows the weather where you are?

Bohemian kitchens




I have been really uninspired recently. I don't know if it is the cold damp weather making me sleepy, or that I have been working full time in the hospital as well as having a ton of university work to do, and a part time job, phew. My full time work has come to an end until February, so I can at last rejoin the world, and find time to myself.
Starting with cooking, long soaks in the bath, drinks with friends and blogging.

It's good to be back

Concrete bathrooms

Conreate and glass bohemian bathroom
A beautiful bohemian bathroom

Blue bohemian bathroom

Aren't these bathrooms great?  I am so impressed with them. I love the tiny round windows in the top one and the waterfall in the second. I know it sounds silly but looking at them I keep thinking about the damage you could do falling over in one of these baths. Ouch!
Have a great weekend, I am off to see The cinematic orchestra at the Albert hall this weekend, can't wait

Wooden Homes pt.2



I have posted the above picture before but I love it



Aren’t these natural wooden homes gorgeous? I spend so much time dreaming about houses that have beautiful fabrics and great Moroccan detailing etc… but every now and then I come across a picture of a handmade wooden home, surrounded by nature, made with passion and oh so very homely and I feel like such a fool for being so suckered in by all the marketing of the must have iphone and expensive bath oils.

Life could be so much more simple, so less stressful, if I just calmed down and was surrounded by nature , living a life where there was no mobile phones and handmade bath oils. 

As I have been reminded recently we are all part of the universe, isn’t it so funny that sometimes we forget this? So this post is dedicated to Kara from ‘once there was a tree’ for reminding me. (I urge you to check out her blog)
