Cloth houses


Cloth houses all you need if you got love - John Sebastian, Woodstock.

With that little peak of sunshine gracing our days more and more I'm having many daydreams of camping road trips.  Each year we try to have at least one camping trip, I love nothing more than setting up our tent with blankets, lanterns and lights.  Something I never understand is people who "hate" or "don't do" camping. What!!!!

How can you not love looking up at the stars, sitting out on a night with friends or family chatting the night away, not having the interruptions of day to day life, strolls at dusk, walking barefoot in the grass, and all the other lovely things, there are too many to mention. I think everyone should go back to basics and sleep under the stars at least once a year. what do you think?

Hands up, who else is ready for a road trip?

A Quick Fix


When I was studying at University my degree was in design, it was split between three sections fashion, gift and interiors.  Within interiors one of my favourite things to design was wallpaper, I really enjoyed the design process and we even got to hand print our paper designs. It was amazing to see something you created really come to life.

Saying that, I have always had a love for pattern, I was one of those kids who would leave a DIY or decorating shop with a hand full of wallpaper samples, and to be quite honest I'm still pretty guilty of this!

When we bought our first house I knew I wanted to decorate but I was pretty intimidated to do it myself so we just painted the walls, and honestly it just didn't feel like home for me. I my bohemian soul needed some pattern and texture with in my rooms.

When we eventually moved to our next house (the one we are currently living in), tackling wallpapering was top of my to-do list. I had a bit of a lesson from a family member and together we did a feature wall in my living room and it turned out pretty good, luckily it was a flat and easy wall to conquer. You know what, It's actually pretty straightforward! and its not as daunting as I thought, though I would advise at first it helps to have someone around to give you a helping hand if you need it. if you don’t have a friend of family member to give you some tips, you can read some guides on line.

Since then I have be come a bit of a DIY lover, I have even decorated my dining room, master bedroom, Penny's room, my mums living room and I'm currently doing the kitchen, my home feel much more homely and reflects my style so much better. It's so satisfying to know I did it myself also!

I'm quite lucky that my home is a pretty light and airy space, it gets a lot of natural light in it, so currently I'm working with that.  When I was choosing my wallpaper designs I wanted something busy but subtle, like most boho lovers who own a lots of trinket, art, patterns and treasures to display and you don't want to compromise anything.

As with most things, wallpaper goes in and out of fashion, but now there is so many designs and types that whatever your taste or style you can find something to suit, plus I tend to pick things that I love rather than it being "on Trend".  For me the beauty of wallpapering a room is you can quickly change the whole vibe of a space in a day or afternoon. Plus It's a pretty inexpense way to transform your home and give it a little update all while expressing your personal style. Hooray for wallpaper!

My yoga teacher training #3

Yoga training is coming on really well, each weekend I come home with so much more knowledge and information. It takes me the week after just to process it all! I'm not going to lie it can be pretty intense, but in a good way as there is so much to learn!

In the anatomy and physiology part of things we are currently studying the shoulder, we go in to detail about the bones, muscles and movement in that area etc. The human body is pretty unreal, it not until I started learning through my training how amazing it actually is! it really make you appreciate things.

We have began practising and planning micro lessons, its great because we are each given a different topic and then we have to create our lesson based on which one we get. We started with creating our own relaxation script, I was incredibly daunted by this at first but lucky I got a topic I was comfortable with so it went well... thank goodness! Now I feel much more confident about the relaxation side of the lessons, out of everything that was the one thing I was worried about the most.

I love the savasna at the end of my lessons, it's also an incredibly important part of practice so making sure everyone get to that deep level of relaxation was something I felt a lot of pressure over. But like anything these things come with time.

Another thing we are currently working on is pranayama with is basically the control of breath, we are starting with fully learning the basics of breathing techniques and will progress as times goes one. In a nutshell that's just a quick brief of what's going down in the yoga teaching. I have some new assignments to work on which include a micro lesson in breathing techniques, which I should actually be cracking on with right now! so on that note.......
