- I shared a few pictures of my summer afternoon, last week, before I got ill..
- More beautiful photos of green spaces over on Mittenska's blog, she takes the most perfect photographs, and her surroundings are just gorgeous. I can't wait until I can live in a little piece of countryside, and go wandering in meadows to reset. I must get outside more.
- I thought this travel memories picture box was such a cute idea - I am a hoarder of all ephemera when I come back from holidays (ticket stubs, receipts, trinkets) and I never know what to do with them all.
- This colour blocked chocolate with edible flowers is absolutely gorgeous - I think it would make the perfect treat for an afternoon tea or hen party... book marking for future reference!
- This shelving unit is a thing of beauty.
- About halfway down this post is the most stylish little blue bathroom with palm print wallpaper.
- Sometimes the homes I admire, and as such would want to emulate, can be a little cold, as I like a lot of white walls and wood - but this home looks cosy, despite having all that.
- Still on that ice-cream kick - I really want to have a go at this banana matcha ice-cream, it looks really good.
- Actually useful interview tips - I think I followed the majority of these in my most recent job interview!
- Becky gave us a sneak-peek into the new Scandinavian inspired homeware and clothing collection at House of Fraser, Gray & Willow, and this makes me very excited! The ceramics in particular have piqued my interest...
- What's the worst thing you've ever done on the Sims - and the linked sub-Reddit kept me amused for quite some time. And I thought just trapping them in the swimming pool was evil!
- Every summer, I try and make my own iced tea, and it's never as nice as when I usually get it - which seems to be in London at the height of a summer day, and it is the most refreshing thing. I think I'll try Brittany's mint iced-tea, as my mum bought a new mint-plant for the garden today.
- I discovered Rachel's blog, Life with the Roof Down this week, and I fell in love with her picturesque views over the Malvern hills.
- Some towns, like Bruges, I associate solely with Christmas and Winter, but Laura makes a persuading case for the canal lined streets in the summer.
- If I had enough flat space in my garden, I would so get a little pop-up geodesic greenhouse!
- When I was an angry teenager, I used to make fun of stuffy English stately homes, but as I've grown older, I've rediscovered the love of a National Trust place, I'm not too far from Deborah, so need to visit some of the places she's mentioned - but I am absolutely in love with Stourhead, even after all these years.
- I've also been photocising (a term I'm not sure I'm a fan of!) for years - and I love the therapeutic nature of exercising your creativity whilst going for a wander.
