  • Cose che non avevo messo in conto nel mio film sulle ferie 🧐 . Che Sofia mi guardasse malinconica mentre vado via dalla scuola per dimenticarsi di me 5 minuti dopo . Che per portarla a scuola dobbiamo mettere la sveglia, la più grande ingiustizia delle ferie (che poi io sono quella che in ferie si sveglia come quando in ferie non è ma se suona la sveglia è sempre un trauma 😭) . Che a scuola rimane 3 ore e in quelle 3 ore che fai? Tornare a casa non è un opzione da valutare e quindi nell’ordine fai una seconda colazione, fai commissioni da trauma rinviate per tutto l’anno, fai una terza colazione 🤨 . Oggi abbiamo terminato le incombenze (o almeno quasi) e ci siamo sentiti in ferie. Una passeggiata lungo il mare (mentre Sofia era a scuola) il programma del menù del pranzo a base di insalata per stare leggeri. Poi abbiamo fatto la seconda colazione inaspettata 🙈 . Dovevo allestire non so quanti set e cucinare non so quante cose. Sto facendo la seconda ma senza riuscire a fare la prima. O quasi. Ben lontana dalle mie aspettative (però sono soddisfatta del risultato) . Sono in ferie e riesco ad integrare su IG lo zero assoluto per mancanza di tempo. Arrivo la sera a letto stremata. Quindi l’altra idea del “mi ritaglio 2 ora di tempo per stare su IG mentre gli altri dormono” è diventata un misero fallimento 😅 . Però sono felice. Vi bacio di cuore 😘💛 P.s questo è uno dei pochi set realizzati tra l’altro a casa dei miei lo scorso fine settimana. E udite udite sono riuscita a trovare 4 piantine di Eucalipto Gunnii che aspettano solo di arrivare tra le mie mani 😍😍 (mia mamma non sa ancora che le pianterò nel suo giardino) Lo sfondo meraviglioso è di @instaset_backdrops#adv #viverelabellezza

  • September light is my favourite of the year. It is so beautiful to photograph, soft, dreamy and calming. I sometimes wish I could bottle it and make it last all year but then it wouldn’t be so magical. xo 📷

  • “Wild is the music of autumnal winds amongst the faded woods” {Wordsworth} Today is officially the first day of Autumn 🍂 This weekend I have used the colder weather and rainy days as an excuse to cosy up inside and watch movies. Even though I’m sure there is something more useful I could be doing, I’m enjoying it! I really do love this time of year. Hope everyone is having a fab weekend!

  • Leisurely weekend scenes 🌿 A weekend of lingering over coffee and breakfasts, and wine and cheese in the evening - and long walks along the beach and in the rainforest - and a little shopping thrown in too. Back to reality today - but so good to see my children after 3 days away.

  • whoop whoop, it's ma birthday! full moon in aries! autumn equinox! had cake for breakfast, washed my hair, put on some pretty clothes and did a little happy dance. . . that's probably the wildest this birthday is going to get. although... with a full moon in aries everything and anything could be possible ;) . . i was born, 38 years ago, on a full moon night and have always felt the moons 'pull' in both obscure and evident ways. it seems to make so much sense that she, who is more than capable to move vast bodies of water like oceans and seas, has absolutely no difficulty 'moving' us tiny humans as well. on full moon days i take it a bit easier. things seem sharper, more frantic and dramatic. injuries occur more often because of pushing and forcing. so i practice an extra amount of deliberate softness. when moving, talking, breathing, deciding. overall softness and ease. . . what are your experiences with the (full) moon? how do you 'move' with her?

  • #monsteramonday I’m in serious need of a moss pole for this green goddess as I’ve been gathering all the shoots around bamboo sticks to try and contain it in our small living room, but with limited results...Any tips on repotting with a moss pole? Should I keep all the leaves or trim down? 💛

  • • su carta da lettere giallo chiaro • In questo periodo sto riflettendo tanto sulla mia presenza qui, su come e quanto essere online, su come e quanto espormi. (Spoiler: ne parlerò ancora in un paio di articoli del blog e newsletter, sono già lì pronti). Ultimamente però sto un pochino trovando un modo, un equilibrio. Sto iniziando a sentirmi meno in crisi, sarà che ne ho parlato tanto con amiche/colleghe, sarà che poi a furia di provare una soluzione si trova. Non so quanto funzionerà, ma sono ottimista. Perché ho capito che devo lasciarmi condizionare di meno, essere più me stessa, con i miei tempi, le mie modalità. Fare quello che mi sento, non lasciarmi schiacciare da modi e parole lontani. Per questo quando ho letto l'ultima newsletter di @alchimiadellaparola e ho visto il suo hashtag #essercimeglio mi è sembrato una specie di segno. Perché è quello che voglio fare. Qui, ma anche in generale. Esserci meglio. #raccontatisempre #essercimeglio

  • WHY YOUR “ABOUT PAGE” MATTERS .🔸 The About Page is, almost always, the second most visited page of a website. (Check your Google Analytics to see if this is true for you.) And that’s a good thing - your website visitors have read enough about your business on your Home Page (which is, unsurprisingly, the most visited page of a. Website) and now want to know more about you. But this isn’t the place for your CV - it’s where you tell your story, persuasively: * How you can help 🔸 * Say what unique experience you offer 🔸 * Include testimonials - show that other people value your business 🔸 * Make sure you include a Call to Action - a newsletter sign-up if you have wisdom to share, or a link to your Contact Page.🔸 * And always, ALWAYS, include a photo of you (and everyone in your business). 🔸 . . . . #seeksimplicity #beautyyouseek #makeitblissful

  • Our house renovations are now back in full swing, with grand plans to have finished the interior of the house by the end of the year. The two spare bedrooms are next to be tackled, & I’m particularly excited for the box room. I had originally planned to make this room into an office space, but I’m enjoying working at the dining table, looking out over the hills. So now I’m planning on dedicating the room to one of my favourite things: reading. • I’ve always wanted a library in my home, but I don’t think I’ll ever own a house big enough for such an extravagance. I’m planning on coming close though, lining two full walls of our box room with shelves that I will fill with my many, many books. The only piece of furniture in the room will be a day bed piled with blankets & cushions - perfect for guests, but also creating a cosy little nook where I can escape to read. • Pictures hopefully coming soon!

  • Here’s yesterday’s Equinox celebration table, we had a huge roast dinner cooked by @mikethewoodguy, who I swear down must have been a chef in a former life, he’s insane at it! We practiced great-fullness and said thank you to the universe for everything it has done for us so far in 2018. It’s the final week of that huge project - I can’t believe it’s gone so quick! Next week we are spending the week in Gloucestershire so Mike can deliver everything and construct the beds, we are also emptying and moving our storage container while we have a big van. So it’s all making a little trip down to Devon to be either sold, given to charity or put back into storage until the house is built! Which is finally starting to look like it’s getting close, we are now awaiting planning permission and Mike to move to his new workshop, fingers cross for the new year! I have found a new lease of life with Instagram, it’s probably because summer is actually my least favourite season as we are so busy and the roads are so busy and the whole of Kingsbridge and Salcombe is so busy... I live for Autumn! What’s yours favourite season?

  • Our Autumn Equinox table looked a little like this, the table is a reclaimed table treated with hard wax oil which has been going strong for a good few years now without retreating. I foraged just turning hydrangeas heads from the garden and used tiny glass jars alongside some flowers from a bunch given to Mum the other day. The little terracotta pots had t-lights in, as did the two shapes of glass holders. I will be posting lots more on the blog next week. We have a huge order to finish and I’ll be back on my game again! Did you celebrate? I’d love to know how xx

  • Вчора моя подруга сказала декілька разів : «Сьогодні такий хороший день, що мені аж не хочеться завтра нікуди іти». Що це? Реальність б‘є важко? ⠀ Але я так не згодна з цим! Може багато хто вважає, що бути оптимістом чи любити життя - це вибір тупих і сліпих, хто насправді не бачить, яким є цей світ, але я не згодна. ⠀ Я вибираю любити цей день таким- холодним і дощовим. Це привід для мене запхати термосашку в кишеню ( так, мої кишені достатньо великі) і взяти жовту парасолю, жовтий светр і піти шукати нові відповіді на старі питання. ⠀ Я сама вибираю, як себе відчувати - щасливою чи знову незадоволеною. Я просто люблю кожну деталь того, що зі мною трапляється, бо це приводить до того, чого я не чекала. ⠀ І нехай я звучу смішно - мені самій так добре. Мені буває важко, коли люди довкола говорять про протилежне, але можливо це ще один знак - що я не на тих людей дивлюсь. Тому я рада, що в мене є ви і я є тут для вас. Всім чудового початку тижня, не зважайте ні на що, окрім своїх відчуттів. ⠀ ••••••• ⠀ Yesterday my friend said : “Today was so good that I don’t want to go anywhere tomorrow”. So the moment was good but the reality hits hard. No! ⠀ I just don’t agree with this. May you consider me a dreamer or an optimistic (which is now another “label” people put on others), but I am so ridiculously in love with new day. ⠀ I see rain and wind and it’s fine. I smile to my yellow umbrella and another opportunity to go and explore. I put my tea mug in a pocket (yes I have pockets big enough) and I chose what I feel. ⠀ It’s only me who choses how it’s all going to be. Inside and outside. Its no mask or delusion. Its my way to live life - choosing what I do, what I feel and how my everyday look like. ⠀ So wishing you a blast of a week and tell me - is it normal that I still want to stay happy when a lot of people around trying to persuade me in the opposite?

  • Morning! How's everyone doing? Good weekend? We spent Saturday with family at the always excellent @lotherton Hall where we managed to acquire a mega-haul of conkers. Honestly, this picture does not even represent the half of it - we've got a Lego storage box full of them at home now! I predict that we'll play exactly one game of conkers with them and I'll then be spending the next year tripping over the blummin' things. But who could resist these beauties? Have a great Monday, all 😃 x
