The Beautiful Rolling Hills Of Tuscany

When looking through Tomasz Wieczorek’s beautiful photographs of Tuscany, Italy, can you imagine that such a place is real? The rolling hills, old farmhouses and silver olive groves were something that Tomasz has wanted to photograph after he had heard that it is one of the most beautiful places out there.

Tomasz decided to sit through every sunrise and sunset over his time in Italy to get the perfect photographs and although it was tiring, it was worth it. The beauty of the Tuscan landscapes drew him in like a magnet. Tomasz adds that the weather was perfect which was a huge bonus for his photography. He recommends anyone to visit Tuscany as he has very fond memories of the place.

I must say his photographs turned out to be amazing. I’ve been fortunate enough to visit Tuscany myself, and it really does look like it does in his photos. It is a place that makes you feel at peace and really makes you appreciate life; it is a must-see!

We’re All About Stripes

Stripes are very much in fashion this winter and I thought why not extend this to other products as well? Stripes are fun and what’s great is the many different colour combinations you can put together. If you’re feeling a little festive there are products with all the colours of the rainbow in their stripes too.

I love this plain black and white striped toiletry bag from the Simply House store. Even your toiletries will be in fashion this winter.

This long digital tapestry from the Left Collective store would look amazing in any bedroom or I could even see it in a dining room.  I like the uneven stripes in simple black and white.

These days there are many different interpretations of stripes, they don’t just have to be the same old traditional pattern we first think of.  The large striped journal from Landi Khun is filled with unique stripes, I love how they are all over the place. 

How cute are these blue and white chambray shoes from Luna Moon for a little boy? Your little one will be walking in style all day long.

Why not have a little party with these pink and white striped straws from Teelee? I love the light pink and white together and they could be the starting point of a great themed party. I must say I’m getting a few ideas for my birthday coming up!

Your Kid’s Room With Hello Pretty

I like the idea of neutral or pastel colours for decorating a kid’s room. I have chosen some beautiful and adorable products from Hello Pretty that will make a great addition to your kid’s bedroom. The products are all neutral, so any of these can be used in a boy or a girl’s room.

This colourful hot air balloon garland from the younghearts store is a good choice to bring some colour and fun into your kid’s room. I love the pastel colours.

Then there are the crochet floor cushions from PommePomme. The neutral colour is great for a girl or boy’s room. Perfect for bedtime stories.

How cute is the animals and tree wall art from the Custom Vinyl Art store? I love the African theme and the pretty colours.

The large cloud cushion from Sprouts Kids Co is ideal for your little one to snuggle into at night. They will be off to dreamland with their cloud cushion in no time.

I think the large wooden elephant carving from Hands Design Collective is so cute to put in a kid’s room as a décor piece. When they are older they could even play with it as a toy. 

aFREAKa Onesies for Winter

With winter fast approaching I think it’s only appropriate to acquire a onesie to keep you warm. Why not have a little fun with it as well? aFREAKa Clothing designs and makes a range of fun and colourful onesies for adults and children. 

The idea for the business came about when founder Ole, went on a road trip in a black cat onesie that he almost never took off. He found it to be comfortable and practical and many people enquired after the onesie, wanting one for themselves too. 

aFREAKa clothing has two ranges; the first is the animal onesie range. These are made from polar fleece making them warm, comfortable and easy to wear. They have about 80 different characters or animals to choose from. The second range are the INYE onesies, these are made from 100% cotton and are a little more stylish.

What’s great is that they make onesies for children and for adults, so your whole family can keep warm and look awesome. I think the adult springbok onesie is perfect for the upcoming rugby games against Ireland next month, you’ll be warm and comfortable throughout the game.

There is a bit of mystery concerning what animal their logo is; can you guess it? As aFREAKa says, “Remember: winter is coming!”

Colour Palette- Purples

Today’s blog post is all about hues of purple. I must say lilac is one of my favourite colours, but I also love the rich, deep mulberry purple. Here are some beautiful purple products from Hello Pretty.

The purple butterfly from the Dilly Dolly store would look great in a kid’s room; I love the different shades of purple on this artwork.  

I love this grape purple scarf from Thrifty Magpie, it’s perfect for the upcoming winter season.
This small clutch from Sew & Such is ideal for make-up or it’s something that could fit into your bigger handbag.

The Lumbar cushions from Kerry Cherry Designs and Prints are always a good idea. I love the purple hue and the patterns on these.

The sterling silver purple heart pendant from Eon Hoon would make the perfect gift for a friend. I love the purple detail in the heart.
