AFF6AFF9AFF1AFF5AFF3Yay, it’s nearly the weekend and it looks like it’s going to be a hot one! I smell Summer!

I’ve devoted this weeks pics to the great outdoors and it just goes to show that you don’t have to have a huge space to be able to create something a little bit special. We only have a small balcony but I can’t complain considering we look out onto a marina.

Whatever you’re up to, have a good one and enjoy the sun


I was recently asked by Fab if I would like to collaborate with them and have three of my designs included in a campaign they would be doing with May28th…let’s just say that they didn’ have to ask me twice!

May28th “is an accessories brand decicated to creating fun, affordable watches for men and women”. Their aim “is to offer on-trend accessories that double as watches”. What more could you ask for!?

There are 28 artists included with three designs each which makes a grand total of 84 watches so I’m sure there is something for everyone. You can get your hands on one for £32. Bargain!

You can see the full range here but be quick because each design is a limited edition of 10!

Imagine a huge magazine delivered to your door every day with ever changing content and the ability to add whatever you like…well it already exists and it’s called Pinterest.

I remember hearing rumblings about a rapidly growing site a couple of years ago and it wasn’t long before I was completely hooked. At last there was the ultimate scrapbooking experience which didn’t involve a pair of scissors, getting Pritt Stick all over your hands and ruining your favourite magazines. Of course you could bookmark images but that’s a lonely old experience. Now you can engage with fellow like minded people, have a discussion about what you have pinned and network with other bloggers and designers. It’s like one big never ending conveyer belt of inspiration. What I didn’t know back then was just how addictive it would become, spending hours at a time drooling and lusting over image after image and looking forward to my next fix.




I was surprised when I realised that I’ve now got thirty boards on the go ranging from architecture, places I’ve been, things I’m lusting after, chairs (of course!), Eames (as if they wouldn’t be included!), everything and anything that I want to include. Whether your planning on revamping a room, organising a party, planning a holiday and where to go or planning your wedding, you can have all those images in one place. When you Pin a pic from a website it also links back to it so you easily find out where you came across it. The Apps are also very good, I do a lot of my Pinning on my iPad but I also use my iPhone and an absolute must is the Pin It button which can be placed in your toolbar. Even my partner looks at my ‘Lust, need, want’ board to give him ideas of what to buy me for my birthday and Christmas. How deliciously perfect.

So imagine my excitement when I received a mail from Pinterest asking me to take part in the Pin It Forward UK Campaign! Although it’s been around since 2010 it was never officially launched, it just grew into what it is today. Now for us in the UK there is a huge fanfare involving fantastic UK bloggers to spread the word about the launch of a UK specific Pinterest. It will look the same and have the same domain name but you will be shown more UK relevant content.

In the spirit of Pin It Forward UK I now pass the baton to Paula Holmes of The P-Ho Diaries and make sure to check out her fantastic blog.

So what are you waiting for? If you’re not addicted already…get Pinning!

I LOVE this collection of rooms! The fireplace in the first pic is just droolicious and the picture on the wall in the third pic is just a little bit special too. I hope their wetting your appetite.

Happy Friday and have a tasty weekend.
