We can add beauty to the small, everyday moments of our life by being mindful as we enjoy small rituals, like drinking tea. And also by intentionally choosing quality, beautiful goods to be part of those rituals with us. Our ceramic tumblers are equal parts earthy & luxe and are the perfect thing to cradle throughout the day as you sip your brew.
Morning ❤️ Let’s make this a great Monday! I’ve got some designs to work on and my office move to finish, excited about making it my own! What have you got planned for today? . 📷 by @tinkertailoronline , Antonia has a great eye for all things beautiful and she has styled the Palm Leaf cushion perfectly 💕
Anyone else so fed up with winter already? I find it hard to shift that slow sluggish feeling and can't wait for the energy of spring to get organised again, I feel the need to give everything the Marie Kondo treatment! If you don't know her google it asap ;-) She teaches such a mindful way of organising all our belongings and says to say 'thank you' to the items we choose to get rid of. It's so important to love the items we own to not feel crushed under the mental weight of it all. ♡♡♡ #buylesschoosewell
Each leaf is considered as a small part of the living changing being that is a tree, but is in itself complete, and carries in its shape its conditions of life and every twist of fortune it has endured. I invite you to take a moment today to find a leaf and explore it in detail, what it carries in its leaf form, and most importantly, what it evokes in you. Wishing you all a happy Monday and a great start to your week!
Many brains are sharpest in the morning (although you may feel like you need a cup of coffee or eight). Block 1-2 hours in your calendar between 8-12 am for high focus work where you’ll tackle the most demanding tasks at the moment. If you are a night owl, block 1-2 hours in the period when you are most productive 🌝🌞
Certainly not my breakfast view but Sunday morning was productive, brought out the good ol' waffle maker for brunch... 🍽 I find I've been spending less time going out for meals these days, in a bid to cook more and (ultimately) save more money. #seekjanuarymagic Financial responsibility isn't something we talk about a lot around here, especially as we're supposed to be at our golden age socialising with friends over bottomless brunch and having the time of our lives. But why do I feel sometimes guilty over it?
Morning team! Who turned out the lights?! 🌑 I’m really NOT about these dark mornings... 😴🐻 I also don’t have an image that accurately portrays the current moment (for obvious reasons) but I wanted to pop in and say hi anyway 👋🏽 so... 🤷🏼♀️ Hope you all have a cracking start to the week! 😘 #breaktheloop
We’ve been focusing on the more soothing crafts that are easing us through January and February, the grey months. My current favourite is our mindful stitching for self-care, which starts in February. It includes a full embroidery kit, and an illustrated instruction booklet so you carry on with your newfound stitching skills #learning#selfcare#monday#beginnersembroidery#mindful#theartofslowliving
Spent most of the weekend in the kitchen. Lots more recipes coming soon and a good dose of something chocolatey and orangey too. Have been in an apron for most of the last 48 hours. Looking forward to putting on a frock and heading out the house this week. Happy Monday all. Coat - vintage Shirt - old @massimodutti 📷- @adambrazier
There’s been a lot of change in our lives recently... moving interstate, changing lifestyle, being out of routine, etc. With kids it can be chaotic! Change is hard but it’s refreshing, I think. Speaking of change, is there any new products you would love to see from us?
A throwback to our journey in Iceland last summer. That ever ending view in Möðrudalur and those rare, quiet moments that you just pause and breath. Grateful to have woken up just outside this window to fresh cold air and hot coffee. Grateful for our travels last year. Happy Monday, everyone!
Winter skincare is a little like winter clothing - best used layered. ~ If you find your skincare isn't quite doing it's job, try applying in thin layers rather than thicker ones, allowing it to absorb fully and adding more as needed. Less really is more ~ happy happy Monday folks 💛
In Bali, nothing is done without first preparing an offering to the Gods. You see them EVERYWHERE. In places you might expect like temples, altars and statues, but one quick stroll through any street and you will see there is truly no end or beginning to what is blessed. Parked vehicles or motorbikes, water mains, large trees, doorways to homes, businesses, waterfalls, kitchens, fruit stands, before work, after work, before a big decision and on and on and on basically forever. Nothing is too small or separate from the deserving of a blessing. ✨♥️🙏🏽♥️✨This is daily life for the Balinese, every single day — some days more offerings, some days larger offerings, but every day countless offerings are made. 🌈🍃🌴🌺🤟🏽 Yesterday, thanks to @florabowley’s good friend @ni_co_le_la who has lived here in Ubud for nearly 30 years (and was adopted into a Balinese family — into a compound of 30 people no less! 💞) we had the enormous privilege of learning about Balinese offering making, traditional dance and #gamelan music. Words fail really, but there was a joy that was palatable the entire time. 💗 I am sealing this memory in a golden box lined with velvet and will cherish it forever. Learning so much about the fusion of food, art and love from the Balinese every single day. 🛐 Incredibly grateful. #artofalivenessbali#balineseoffering#livingceremony
Deze kleine beentjes wandelen, rennen en springen altijd met ons mee op avontuur. Maar soms, soms zijn ze een beetje moe en vraagt hij of ik hem wil tillen. ‘Mijn beentjes zijn een beetje te klein mama, ze zijn moe’
Instagram has always been the platform I struggle with the most. It’s partly my fault as I started really making effort with my content last May and we all know how hard it’s been lately to grow on here. But I realized in the new year that I was doing things wrong. Head over to my blog to here about my new approach with instagram and how it’s been performing.

Стараюсь жить свою жизнь так, чтобы ни о чем потом не жалеть. ⠀ Так странно и так страшно бывает от того, что жизнь так переменчива и непостоянна. ⠀ Можно сколько угодно планировать свою жизнь на н-ное количество лет вперёд, а завтра возьмёт и не наступит. ⠀ Куда проще жить мгновением. Задумываться порой о будущем, но не зацикливаться на нем. Быть гибким. Плыть по течению. Получать удовольствие от процесса. С такими мыслями я встречаю понедельник. А вы?✨
During our 12km walk yesterday morning, which well and truly blew away those cobwebs, we passed a local nursery/garden centre (Primrose Nurseries in Styal). I always like to pop in and browse. They were selling eucalyptus for 95p a branch!! It’s run by volunteers and they sell all manner of indoor and outdoor plants and shrubs. When we first moved in, this shelf with mirror behind in our kitchen, wasn’t really utilised. Mainly as we didn’t know what to do with it! Over time we’ve started to collect items to display. Mainly from charity shops, such as the pestle and mortar and the glass jar. I’ve moved the print from @statement.artworks here too now as it was looking lost on the other side. This all ties in nicely with the theme for @myhousethismonth today which is Monday mention. Whether it’s local independent shops, or hose making a living online, to charity shops, Instagram accounts that are established with thousands of followers or newly starting ones, they are all worthy of a mention. @trash_i_treasure those pots! 💙 @styledupinterior @mycreativeinterior @interiorsupnorth
