Some Sunday dreaming for dreamers ✨

And if you're looking for a few little beauty miracles check out my latest blog post - I've found three lotions or potions that are bringing rejuvenation to my skin this spring.

Happy Sunday ✨☕️

~ raw truffles and coffee ~
.
.
.
Good morning ☕️ A little weekend cooking inspiration. Homemade raw cacao and coconut oil truffles, rolled in chia seeds. I've made energy balls before but had no idea truffles were this easy too. I'd love to know what your healthy snack of choice is, and if it's sweet or savoury, homemade or bought? Something about the spring makes me want to change it up 🌿🌸

Happy Saturday! .

~ Friday with roses ~
.
.

Another new canvas, rubbed out /prepared for the next stage. A single white rose. And the scent of peppery roses and exotic spice In a bottle. .
.

And this is to tell you about my next blog post, landing in the next couple of days. I became increasingly enthusiastic about three daily skin/fragrance products I've been using this spring and decided it was only fair to share! This Rose 31 by my favourite @lelabofragrances is one of them. I'm so grateful to have been invited to go along to an event at their Beak Street store recently where I was able to try each scent I was drawn to over and over. A bit like a wine-tasting for perfume-lovers! Rose 31 is like nothing I've ever smelt before.
.
.
.
The other two products I'm mad about are by @veneffect and @omorovicza both of which I sought out in @spacenk in recent months. I'll be telling you exactly why they're all things I'll be reluctant to do without ever again. There's a lip treatment (it's actually magical ✨) and a deeply hydrating cream made with colloidal gold. So keep an eye out! 👀

Happy Friday 💃

~ paint and candlelight ~
.
.
.
I posted a video on my story yesterday of this moment - grey mornings need embracing even in the spring. .
.
.
The painting is one I finished recently. I used metallic paint and oils on canvas. As a result it seems to suit any mood as there's always a reflective glimmer from somewhere. And that's quite nice when we're wishing for sunshine ☀️ .
.
.
Have a lovely Thursday .

What else do you do when you need a break from painting in your studio? 🤠
.
.
Have a happy day, it's raining here, so I'm preparing for a double-volume hair day as I venture into town for an appointment and then lunch with an old friend over from LA. What's the day like where you are? And should I move there? ☔️☹️😉

~ spring morning | coffee and cake ~
.
.

Good morning ☕️ .
.

At the weekend I took a break from back-breaking garden work and whizzed to my local @planetorganic - I hadn't seen/noticed these cakes in there before. They are gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, yeast free and grain free? Sounds like they'd be as far from cake as you can get but I've nearly finished them and want to back and find some more!! 🤣 Just had to share! I might have ago at making a homemade version.... 😊👌🏼

~ wearing wisteria ~
.
.
.
And white wisteria too! Could I get away with this look? Or am I losing the plot? I think it's a condition called wisteria hysteria. 😜
.

And this week I received this beautiful gift of a hand knitted jumper from @kutovakika Sweden. I love what she writes about her story - she would sit with her grandmother, knitting, when she was a child and she says that 'what was important was the process of making something with your own hands.' I have an image in my head when I wear it. It feels truly soft and personal. So there are many reasons to smile! .

Have a lovely Sunday. ☕️❤️✨

I'm tempted to do this all day after an unintentionally late night (it's a steep learning curve having a 15 year old) But that would be leaving my husband to continue with the huge garden overhaul alone. It's so much easier to imagine our finished garden than actually do it. There's a pic on my stories of a corner of garden progress - the image keeps us motivated ☕️💪🏼 I'm interested to know what your plans are today and you're undertaking a large garden project or taking things nice and easy? 🌿✨
