Safari Circus nursery

A few weeks ago the lovely Zahirah Marty, of the recently launched mummy & lifestyle blog, Meet Mrs Marty (a must see), contacted me to discuss a special project that she needed help with – creating a nursery for her baby boy. I hadn’t designed a nursery in a while and was really excited to take this on. Zahirah and her hubby didn’t have any particular or preconceived ideas in mind so I was afforded free reign with the design pitch and lucked out with one of… Read more »

Last minute Christmas gift Guide

Last minute Christmas gift guide

So we are down to a mere eight sleeps until Christmas and I’ve done precisely no shopping. Like, none. at. all. Hello last minute rush, I’ve not missed one bit. Fun times ahead of me this weekend. For those of you who haven’t clocked it yet – this is the last weekend before Christmas. Somebody slap me. At this point, I need a strong game plan, so I’ve spent the morning having a look around the interwebs for some ideas. Whilst I’ve not been… Read more »

Christmas styling festive decor

A festive collaboration of Christmas styling

If you’ve been a regular around here for some time, you may recall the bloggers collaboration project I was involved in around this time last year. Blogging can be a bit of a solitary mission at times so I jump at the chance to work with like-minded creatives. Joining forces with my dear, and seriously talented friend, Linda at Live Loud Girl for another styled Christmas shoot was a no-brainer. Despite having our own distinctive styles, she and I have a shared love for… Read more »

Monochrome big boy room

Ethan’s monochrome makeover

Ethan’s room got a makeover last week! Despite being executed rather suddenly, plans for this had been in the making for a while. A few months ago, he fell in love with a monochrome mood board I had created for another boy his age and he asked if we could do something similar for his room. I’ve wanted to make changes to his bedroom for ages so it didn’t take much to convince me, and since then it’s been a regular talking point… Read more »

Father's Day gift guide

Father’s Day gift guide

I don’t usually do many lifestyle features here but since I have been having a look around the interweb for Father’s Day gifts, I thought I’d do you a solid and share some of the goodies I’ve discovered thus far… 1. Love, love, love this gingham shirt with elbow patches. I have a bit of a thing for elbow patches, actually. Is that weird? 2. For those wondering what this thing even is, it’s a super-cool gadget for the fishing enthusiast type… Read more »

The Bowery Company Dubai

The Bowery Company // Giveaway

The Bowery Company is a newly launched, Dubai-based online store that offers a growing collection of what they refer to ‘affordable luxury furniture with an industrial edge’, and frankly, it’s a perfect description. Think old world New York meets contemporary Scandinavian style and you’ll get an idea of the direction this unique new concept is taking. It’s a breath of fresh air, and with plenty of metallics on offer, I was very easily wooed. Here’s my take on a few must haves. I only wish I could… Read more »
