Happy Sunday all, hope you are having a great weekend. Sorry I have been pretty MIA recently we have loads going on and its just crazy! But i do have some pretty cool things coming up soon to share with you. So today i radomly picked the Casa Bella Giveaway winner via rafflecopter... was it you?!?! have a peek here to see.
Recently I was contacted by Casa Bella Furniture to create a mood board for a room using an item from a range they sent me, my style has always been "bohemian" but how I express it has changed a lot over the years.
I'm find myself gravitating towards a much fresher and almost minimal vibe, adding gorgeous textures and patterns to spaces rather that the jam packed curio everywhere look (which I still adore I might add) I just feel a lighter look works better for my lifestyle these days.
I guess that's what I love about the boho vibe, there is no wrong, anything goes and it mixes so well with other styles.
For my mood board I decided to create a clean, simple and modern bohemian look using the Dark Mango Lamp Table. My home has a lot of dark, rich wood in it, I love how it can warm up a room that has a white or neutral pallet.
I'm also excited to announce that Casa Bella Furniture have kindly offered up one of there gorgeous Kilim cushions to a lucky bohomixology reader! You can enter a number of times using the rafflecopter below, open to UK readers only. Good Luck!
To explain a mala in the simplest way they are a set of beads that are traditionally used during meditation and prayers. They also go by other names such as prayer beads or japa beads.
In Sanskrit which its a classical Indian language the word mala means meditation garland, your beads are a guide to help you keep track of you mantras, prayers and meditations.
I have been making mala beads for a few years and find the process incredibly meditative, i recently reopened my Etsy shop called Sweet Bodhi HC, in it you can find vintage bohemian jewellery and my handmade mala beads.
As a way to celebrate my etsy reopening i'm running a giveaway over at my shop instagram @sweet.bodhi
Hopefully you could be the lucky winner :)
Tea is totally my thing! don't get me wrong I also love coffee, but my heart belongs to tea. I have tried and owned many brands and styles but hadn't yet tried the teapigs everyday brew morning glory (how it had got past me I will never know)
I had the change to give it a try for two weeks to see what I thought, so honestly what did I think?!
Unlike a lot of teas teapigs use whole tea leaves in their temples (also known as the super cool looking roomy teabag) this makes a huge difference, the whole tea making ritual changes.
When brewing a cup of any teapigs tea you need to give it a little time to brew and release all the good stuff, and lets be honest if you can't take a few minuets to brew a proper tasty cup of tea then what's the point?
My first brew resulted in me actually saying wow out loud, the flavour was amazing. It was strong, refreshing and so flavoursome. Everything you want in a cuppa' when you wake up in the morning.
This tea would make the most delicious iced tea, I'm daydreaming of warmer days and batches of sweet peach iced tea, yum.
I love what teapegs are doing and how they are just ace-in the tea game, two big thumbs up from me.
What's your favourite kind of tea?

No true bohemian soul is ever too far away from flowers, whether it be in your hair or your home. I'm a huge lover of flowers and love nothing more than fresh blooms dotted around my home.
When it comes to flowers I love the rustic "just picked from the garden" look, it suits my personality and style. When I had the opportunity to collaborate with Wild Flowers Company I jumped at the chance. They are a UK based company that pride themselves on getting beautiful British grown and seasonal blooms into your home.
The whole package is beautiful, you receive a lovely box filled with raffia tied flowers ready to arrange in one large bouquet or split up and use in different rooms around your home, our bundle was huge and lasted 10 days. They would look so pretty split up into mason jars or milk bottles along a windowsill or table centre. Take a peek here at some of the stunning styles, Serious heart eyes!
What truly appealed to me about Wild Flowers Company was how they are breaking the mould with how flower arrangements are delivered and styled. I love the idea of having a seasonal flower subscription delivered to you or a loved one, it's a great way to experiment with flowers and find new favourites.
They even have a pregnancy package which I think is such a lovely idea, it would make the sweetest Mum-to-be Mothers day gift and can be sent during or after pregnancy.
Flowers are a gorgeous gesture whether it be as a thank you, birthday, thinking of you or event like mothers day and lets be honest who doesn't love receiving a flower bouquet especially when they are so effortless and unique
I'm incredibly excited to offer bohomixology readers a discount to use at Wild Flowers Company you can receive 20% off any order until 31st March 2015 with the code BOHO20, why not treat yourself, Mum, friend or someone special and see what all the fuss is about?!
Which Wild Flower Company bundle is your favourite?
