Pins I’m loving, baby themed

Still no baby..so much to everyone who thought I would be early..(my due date is on Saturday) and man am I uncomfortable…plus I have tried everything.. My newest system being watching one born every minute ( get the emotions going) while bouncing on my birthing ball, eating pineapple and stimulating my nipples.. Just picture doing all that at once…who said pregnancy isn’t sexy! Anyway, I thought I’d look at some cute baby related pins to see if it get’s anything going..

How super cute is this, we don’t know what we are having but I think maybe a boy, but to be honest..I’d totally consider dressing a boy in this because I mean why not?! This is from Mini Style Blog.

I’m seeing a theme with pink and yellow…yes once again more girly, but it has sharks on it! Sharks! This is from Stella McCartney.

I recently showed you my gallery wall post here, when the baby is here i’m looking forward to adding some personal touches, like a name letter and maybe some cutesy things too! This is from Mommo Design.

How adorable is this nursery, it’s just so whimsical. This is when I wish we owned our own place, would have been nice to be able to paint the room, but I love how our nursery came out. This is from Petite Vintage Interiors.

This room is super awesome, all the patterns and bold colours, plus the pictures are super cute too! This is from The boo and the boy.

Dual purpose rooms…Office/Nursery

Ok so we have a 2 bedroom house at the moment, and luckily our second bedroom is a good size which is why I am able to split half into my office and the other half is the babies room…which isn’t finished but hey I have 5 weeks…Plenty of time.

So we have all the main bits. Crib, Wardrobe, desk, bookcase. Everything  a baby and an a working woman needs. But because we have decided not to find out the sex, keeping things neutral and non-gender orientated is proving difficult. As much as I love a tassle bunting, if it turns out to be a boy…is tassle bunting going to cut it?

Anyway I turn to trustworthy pinterest for my combo shared room needs.

See I love this layout, so cute and girly, and I like how there is still a lot of room it doesn’t feel crowded. The only issue is with my desk it’s rather large. See my current office space here.

This is more up my street, jam packed full of things…what can I say I have a lot of stuff…It’s going to take me a while to bay proof..

I really wish I could paint our room white, we all no my hatred of magnolia. I just think it looks more fresh and bright when things are white..plus that rhymed.. But when the nursery is done i’ll give you a tour..I have some rent friendly tips up my sleeve.

I love this nursery/office from Oh Joy styled by Emily Henderson. I would have like to have done a little muriel or something similar to the mountains like this on our nursery wall..

We are very lucky to have a spare bedroom which we can make a dual office/nursery but I know not everyone has the extra rooms, so I wanted to show this adorable nursery corner. There are so many options out there of how to fit your baby into your 1 bedroom place. Closets are great for putting the crib in (taking the door off obviously) and different hacks to fit baby into your life. Babies are small, and with some great organisation they can fit into little corners of your life!

So next week I think i’ll look at some cute nursery pieces to keep your nursery organised and looking adorable!

Birthday Fun Pins

So yesterday I turned 26 and celebrated my birthday having a chilled day with Richard. To be honest a lot of things right now  completely drain me, so chilling was perfect. We ate cake, we watched films, and did a trip to Ikea..was perfect. This week sees us going to my brothers wedding so to be honest I’m kind of saving my energy for that..very different to last year, where we partied! Anyway for today I thought i’d look at awesome Birthday pins..for the Birthdays in your lives coming up..next year…i’ll drink and party!

I think i’d like to have a really big do for my 30th. I have 4 years to plan it. This year has been super crazy, and gone super fast. It’s crazy to think that next month I might have a baby and that me and Richard would have been engaged for a year…without anything being planned bar the photographer..crazy!!! Here is to another year…next year should be interesting!!

Illustrations I am loving

Trying to get some inspiration as I’d love to get back into drawing and painting, especially as my lovely friend Letty got me some new paints for my baby shower. Plus I am always on the lookout for new artworks to drool over.

I think recently I have been really drawn to pastel colours, I think it’s my wanting to decorate my house full of colour that’s coming through. I’d love this as a piece on my wall, It’s all the tiny details I love, the laces in particular..is it weird I love those laces..

Look at all those delicate lines and details, I think if I had the money my house would look like a circus with all the different artworks i’d buy. I’ve curated many things, so maybe i’d find a way to make it work..but it would probably look like a circus.

Similar with the eye print, I love drawings of lips. What can I say, I think quite a few pins and artworks of lips have made their way onto the blog the last year and a half.

Can’t go wrong with botanicals, especially palm trees. I get so jealous every time I see a blogger instagram a gorgeous sunset or sunrise with a coloured sky framing the palm trees…right now I look outside and it’s rather grey..

It’s a little soppy, yet completely lovely no?

This is one of my favourite pieces of the post. The colour contrast, the silhouette , it works.

Can’t go wrong with a pair of shoes. ever. I’d like a series of these, all different shoes in different colours..

I can’t rave enough about pinterest, if you don’t have it honestly take a look. No matter what your into. Fitness, cooking, music, photography every category or hobby you can think of, there will be thousands of pins..I spend way too much time on pinterest..

Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father's-day-gift-ideas-etsy,brika-and-DIY

 

So I was asked to look at some ideas for father’s day, and to be honest I had quite a bit of fun researching and pinning ideas! Next year Richard will be celebrating Father’s day, and I already like some of these as possible ideas for him next year!

Ok to the gifts. From clockwise we have  1. You’re the best pop! Card from Etsy.  2. My daddy is cooler then Batman, Card from Etsy.  3. Bacon me Crazy, food products from Brika. 4. Beef & Beer T-shirt, from Brika. 5. The Grillfather chopping board from Etsy. 6. Dad you are my father, Star Wars card from Etsy. 7. Stitchless Wallet from Brika.

Ok so a few little things to hopefully get the ideas flowing. I always find father’s day get’s more and more tricky the older you get..what to buy the dad who has most things he needs. There’s only so many times you can buy him socks! So hopefully some of these ideas may inspire. Plus I love how cute the cards are!  For the little ones, go on to our Pinterest page and look at our father’s day board, there are some super cute DIY ideas for your little ones to make for their dads.

Don’t panic we have just under 2 weeks to find the perfect gift!

Pink kind of month

I love colour, when I’m on Pinterest I am totally drawn to bright colourful images! I even have a board purely dedicated to colour..so I thought I might try a new series of exploring colourful images..might even advance this into colour specific items too..who knows..this space could get wild!  (how many times can do I mention colour??!!) So I thought I’d start with pink as I have noticed that a lot of my colourful pins are pink so enjoy!! Also I hope your all enjoying your the last stretch of your bank holiday weekend!

I think i’ve posted this image before but I love it, it’s so bright and fresh I wouldn’t mind it as a print.

Pink banana’s….why not? I love how this picture kind of goes well with the picture below.. no??

tumblr_m86qm1rOo61r2kir1o1_500

I’d like to try a shoot like this, not just with lips, but hands, feet. Could be interesting a sort of surreal pop cultural piece..I can’t remember the last time I used my Mamiya which is a medium format camera..maybe I should do a shoot soon….

I find these kind of pictures ridiculously relaxing..don’t ask me why.. I wouldn’t mind a series of these for my bedroom.

See if we owned our own place we could paint the stairwell pink. Although that might be a bit much…even for me..

I love this piece, it’s so fluid, and this could just be my interpretation, but the painting is depicting a torso no? with the belly button and upper torso..I would love to have my house filled with original artworks..Thats what I miss about not working in the gallery anymore, I don’t have that weekly does of inspiration and creativity at my finger tips.

I love cactus’s or cacti?? anyway they are so easy to keep, and can add some colour and greenery to your home! I have a cute DIY coming up next week involving this cute plant! Anyway I love the contrast in this image, what can I say clearly pink and greens speak to me..

 

I’m thinking maybe green for next time….Enjoy your Monday all!

Dreaming of owning our own home

I don’t know if it’s the nesting or wanting to be able to do what I like in the house I live in, but I can’t stop dreaming of things I would do if we owned our own place. Plus the satisfaction that comes with owning your own home too. Now with a baby along the way I think it might be a couple of years..unless I win the lottery..but to do that I’d probably have to play more then once in a blue moon! But until then ill keep trying to make my little rented house a home, with my landlord favourable ideas and hope adding the baby to the mix won’t see our deposit being flushed down the toilet…

But I can still dream, and think about what I would do if we owned this house. Plus some ideas for you guys if you fancy sprucing up your space!

 

tumblr_l3ghziyi3T1qzwfkxo1_500

I love how light and airy this bathroom is. I’d love to be able to pick my own bath…and tiles…funny really..it’s frustrating not being able to do what I want with my house. But I know I’m lucky that I have somewhere to live thats safe and there’s food on our table..so I shouldn’t complain really at all.  This is from Dwellings and Decor.

f0ed1145a19740db7a027e5dd521b2b2

I’d love to cover the outside of our house in flowers, and paint our front door a bright colour. No matter where we live one day I am sure our neighbours will hate us…we will be the weird ones with a bright blue door or something! This is from Dragonfly Treasures.

tumblr_n2n7n4qnez1qbo8blo1_1280

I love the industrial light fixtures that are taking the interior design world. I’d love to have the relaxed hanging light like this next to our bed! This is from Then Let it Be.

tumblr_m632djqO0O1qcv7buo1_1280

 

Subway tiles are awesome, and how amazing are those counter tops. I also would love the freedom to hang up anything I wanted without getting permission or having to use the velcro renters strips. This is from  All Things Stylish.

Look at that flooring pretty tiles are a must!! Plus I think they would look great contrasted with the white industrial subway tiles on the wall! This is from Shelterness.

I have a lot of books and nik naks all over our house so I would love to have shelves like this spotted around the house for extra storage. Plus I love how colourful this room is, and those rugs and pillows…to die for! This is from Apartment Therapy. I say love way too much…

6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e18b5a7970d-800wi

Me and Richard both love (there it is again)  the idea of doing this to one or two of our doors. I think ti would look great in the nursery! Definitely not a landlord approved decor action though! This is from A Beautiful Mess.

GOODHOMES PASTEL CHAIR

This will one day happen. I will have a random circle of colour in one of the rooms of my house one day! Plus that lamp shade is divine! This is from Charlotte Lovey.

How adorable is this nursery, I think one thing I would enjoy about owning our own home, is making a real home for our baby to grow up in. Not worrying about dirty hands or paint getting on the wall…heck doing one wall as an entire chalkboard. Creating memories in our very own place…would be lovely. But I can still do that in the little house we live in now..just hopefully less sticky hands on wall…we would like our deposit back! This is from Mini Style Blog.

 

I’m curious as to what was the first thing you did once you brought and moved into your very own place? Re-did the kitchen? Painted the walls? Ripped out some ugly features? Let me know.

 

ta for now x

Wedding Wednesday’s: Pretty Pins/ 23

So today I didn’t want to look at a specific topic. I have covered so much over the last couple of months, that I am finding it hard to think where to begin..I really need to find a venue. I am hoping to start visiting a few in the next coming months..there’s just so much going on right now, I have no idea what area to concentrate on..

Anyway here are some cute wedding pins to help inspire your wedding..
