Olly Polly

June 30, 2017


My dear friend Genevieve has just launched a brand spanking new Play Section on her online site for her beautiful kiddies label called Olly Polly. Genevieve’s story is so awesome it started with her just making things for her own daughter’s room whilst fueling her life-long love of design, that then turned into her designing a few pieces for her friends which has now bloomed into her very own little business named after her gorgeous little girl Olive.

I’m so proud of Genevieve she has created something really special and her whole collection which includes toys, furniture and decor is just magical! The pieces are practical but playful too and I think she has hit the nail on the head in terms of mixing these two elements together perfectly.

Saint Cloud Residence by Tristan Auer

Saint Cloud Residence by Tristan Auer-1

So even though this place is the complete opposite of what our house looks like I still love the look of it! The clean sophisticated spaces, the marble finishes, the art and well-placed ornaments, it just blows my mind that two kids actually live in this apartment too. They must be the most well-behaved children on the planet because I don’t see even half a torn Mickey Mouse sticker on anything or any remnants of play dough!

This Saint Cloud Residence was designed by Tristan Auer and every inch of it is just too beautiful. I think I love the terrazzo effect that they’ve used the most, I want a floor like that in the next place we renovate to live in.

Spruce up your home with @home

These days you can pretty much get whatever you want online, which is amazing especially if you are anything like me…I love sitting on my laptop in bed browsing sites and adding things to wishlists and carts. I love the fact that if I want something I can just click a button and boom it gets delivered to my front door and I don’t need to do anything other than unwrap and enjoy what I’ve spoilt myself with.

Nina James has a new room

December 6, 2016



Nina James has a new room, a big girl’s room as we have been calling it, with a big girl bed and big girl table and chairs to draw at. I can’t believe my baby girl is 2 years and 4 months old. She has grown so much, especially over the last couple of months. In a way, it breaks my heart because my baby is fast becoming a little grown-up but it also makes me so happy to see her progress and grow and learn new things that make us flipping laugh. This child of mine is a real little character and she does and says the most random, awesome stuff. Sometimes Shane and I just literally turn and look at each other and say “Where did that come from?!”

So before I knew it my baby needed a big bed, which in my mind meant a whole room overhaul! Yes please. We wanted to get her a bunk bed because both Shane and I remember being little and absolutely dying for bunk beds. I think I would of run around the world for one if that was humanly possible for a 10-year-old to do! So bunk beds it was! I went looking around and came across a site called Clever Little Monkey who source some of the coolest kids furniture, bedding and decor I’ve ever seen. If you guys are looking for awesome beds and room things for your littles, then definitely check them out.

GIVEAWAY: Hello new guest room

November 4, 2016


Just recently we moved Nina James out of her first ever bedroom into one of the bigger rooms in our flat so that she could have a bunk bed and more space to play and run around. Her old bedroom has been sitting empty or let me rephrase that, has been used as a place for us to store all the stuff  that gets in the way for over a month now. A real refresh of that space was needed and so I tried to think of clever and cost effective ways to turn it from a glorified storeroom into a cool, clean guest bedroom that hopefully our guests would be happy to sleep in.

I really like it when my doorbell rings letting me know that there is a delivery on its way up to my house. I like it even more so when the parcel is a surprise gift from the one and only Stokperd and Hope Gin.

When I unwrapped the delivery I was so surprised and excited to have this absolutely beautiful gold drinks tray crafted by Stokperd standing in front of me along with a bottle of probably one of the nicest gins I have ever tasted, Hope Gin.

I have been wanting a drinks trolly for a while now, but hadn’t found one that I really liked and was really excited to bring home and add to our collection of things and now I’m so glad that I never ever did find that ‘perfect’ trolley because it’s currently standing in my house.
