New Work & Weekend Breaks

We’ve had a couple of lovely weekends away lately, which has been a nice change to the usual routine. First up was Wales where we wouldn’t have minded waking up to the view we had from our window everyday… Beautiful rolling fields of green countryside. I was even woken up by a woodpecker! We’ve also […]

New Year, New Inspiration

I have to admit that after I posted out my last order just before Christmas 2014, I breathed a huge sigh of relief and took a little longer of a break than originally intended. As you might have seen from my overview of 2014, I think the break was very well deserved! January was a […]

Trip to Devon

I enjoyed a mini break down in Devon with friends earlier this week. We were so lucky with the weather, gorgeous sunshine every day. I am missing this beach now… But it won’t be long before I’ll be setting foot on another beach in under 2 weeks šŸ™‚ During our stay at Challaborough Bay holiday […]

Trip to the allotment

As part of our sketchbook project (see first post here), we are aiming to meet up once a week to focus on some drawing in different locations. Our first meet up was at a local allotment on Wednesday last week. It was such a refreshing change to be out and about surrounded by inspirational shapes, […]

New Designers 2014

Last Friday I took a day out with Megan from Megan Ashwell Designs and visited the New Designers 2014 exhibition at The Business Design Centre in London. Myself and Megan both met at a local fair a couple of years ago, and it turned out we had very similar interests and passions. I now own […]

My trip to Thailand

After three and a half weeks in Thailand I’m feeling very refreshed and positive. I had an amazing trip, and although some of it was very tiring, I enjoyed every minute. A lot of the moments I experienced will be treasured memories, and definitely stories to tell! Just some of the memorable things included a […]

It’s been a busy week…

With a short trip to France last weekend where I went trekking in the mountains of the Alsace region, it was a very tiring but amazing visit. The weather was perfect, approx 32 degrees, with beautiful blue skies. I loved the little French houses painted in pretty colours with different coloured window shutters and flowers […]

Holiday to Cape Verde

I’ve just returned back from an amazing holiday in Cape Verde last week. After a much needed break and coming home to hot summer temperatures, I’m feeling extremely refreshed! When booking this holiday we were attracted to the ‘no stress’ motto, and the fact that the Cape Verde islands are said to be the next […]

A weekend in Derbyshire

I’ve just returned from a weekend away in Derby and am already missing the sunshine in the park, ice creams, picnic, beer garden, beautiful views and fun with friends. Not forgetting the cocktails in a teapot! Matlock Bath was a lovely little place – just like a seaside town but without the sea! { highly […]

London Adventures

I had a great time in London over the weekend. Despite the wet weather, I enjoyed seeing some of the sights and managed to stay dry huddled under a brolly. We started the day with a big breakfast in a little London cafe before hopping on and off the tube looking at some of the […]

Adventures in Bath

Last weekend I spent a fantastic few days away in Bath. We stayed in Frome, about a fifteen minute drive from Bath itself, and found it to be quite a pleasant little town. My favourite part was the cobbled streets and quirky little shops that were hidden away. One day of the trip was spent […]
