Poppy and Someday.... Eye of Ra..... Isis

Isis: The eye of Ra by Poppy and Someday
I am not big on make up, mainly because I am really unconfident at applying it so tend to shy away from anything other than a splodge of mascara (that ends up smeared across my face because i forgot it was there) but I am getting to the point where actually I would like to not look like a zombie in photographs and maybe make a bit of effort.

And so maybe it is perfectly timed that Poppy and Someday and Eagle Eye Healing have teamed up to make what must be the most beautiful make up I have ever seen..... Isis!

Isis our first Eyeshadow and is Lapis Lazuli and Pyrite. Associated with the third eye chakra, the Lapis Lazuli can be traced back to ancient Egypt where royalty believed in its power to stimulate openness to the spirit world and infinite possibilities of the imagination.

Isis is the first product from the new line Eye of Ra, a collaboration between Kari Jansen (Poppy and Someday) and Jessi Campbell (Eagle Eye Healing)......This ceremonial make up is ideal for opening your third eye and tuning in to your intuition. 

Composed of powdered Pyrite and Lapis Lazuli, this eye shadow can be worn soft or made darker with a little water or natural primer.  
The brass container is handmade by Peter Goebel, The Lapis Lazuli inlay and custom eye design on the lid by Moon Pi. Comes with handmade little brass spoon and a scroll with instructions.

Phoebe Wahl : Bloom Weaving

'Bloom' Weaving from Phoebe Wahl

Last night I stayed up late to bag myself a couple of the very ltd "Moomin Day' Mugs for christmas presents..... I missed out as they were really popular selling out in 3 minutes! :(

So I woke up more determined not to miss out on the Phoebe Wahl 'Bloom' weaving pre-order...... so have bitten the bullet and ordered one just now.... and (although now my family will be eating baked beans for a month) I am so excited!!

These lovely floral weavings are 100% cotton and perfect as throws or wallhangings ..... mine is going to be dropped over the foot of my bed.

The Pre-order is only open for another couple of days (until 12th August) so get yourself over to

Bumper sticker love.....

I brake for wildflowers bumper sticker by Maria Schoettler

I don't (yet) drive, but in September I will resume my driving lessons!!!!

I am embarrassed to say I have been learning on and off for 20 years..... yes 20!!! I really am THAT bad and that nervous behind the wheel.

I have spent a lot of the last 20 years dreaming about my dream car (a red and white Citroen 2cv Dolly... a car I have wanted since I was about 5), the tartan throw that will be covering the back seat, the hours I will spend cruising to Low Rider by War..... it will be awesome..... and these are the two bumper stickers (along with my National Trust membership) I am going to decorate my baby with.... The 'I brake for wildflowers' sticker is from Maria Schoettler and is just the cutest, the below 2 Jimi Hendrix Bumper stickers are available on Ebay or Amazon

Hopefully this little dream will give me motivation, if not .... I will just have to get a greenhouse to pimp up :)

You can see more of Maria's beautiful work via her instagram @maria_schoettler and more Car pictures on Moon to Moon here

Architecture: Peter Vetsch

In total contrast to my last post I thought I would post a calm, minimal interior and came across this fabulous 'earth house' by Architect Peter Vetch. Vetch has built over 47 earth houses around the world since the 1970's and has been an inspiration to many cob and earthship builders. I just love all those smooth curves..... formed by sprayed concrete.

The Home of... Romany Soup

I am so excited to show off this beautiful home to you all. It is so refreshing in what sometimes seems like a world of white walls, beni ouriain rugs, baskets and houseplants, to know there are still some wonderfully colourful, eclectic homes out there.

I have been blogging for nearly a decade and seen some of these photos many times circulating tumblr and Pinterest so it is great to finally find they all belong together!!

To see more of this stunningly eclectic British home you can visit blessedwildapplegirl on flickr
