A Trip Down Memory Lane

I had a blue and white teddy bear when I was little and I’m sure I’ll always remember her, even though she is long gone. I’m sure many of you had a favourite teddy when you were young and like me, named them too. At that point in time they are your best friend and a source of comfort. I think that every child needs a teddy when they are young, to think of fondly when they are older.

I saw some unique and adorable teddies for children on Hello Pretty; this classic pink Daisy teddy bear from foxy.moon is ideal for a little girl. The same store makes this very cool unicorn teddy called Skye, which I’m obsessed with. They also make Ebony the elephant, which looks so comfy to cuddle. Yves the raccoon from Cawi Kids & Co is something unique and I love the colours together.  How cute is the Lala Rabbit teddy from the Cawi Kids & Co as well?

Paul Dodd Collaborated with His Young Son to Make Beautiful Art

Paul’s son, Kylan, has always loved to draw and play around with art. When he was 3- years- old he loved to scribble on paper, and these ended up looking like the drawing and swirls of an artist. Paul wondered what these drawings would look like coloured in, so he decided to digitally colour them and they turned them into pieces of art.

The father and son duo really has some talent and my favourite is number 4. I love the colour choices, which are bright and exciting, and the patterns are beautiful and intricate too. Have a look at Paul’s website, Modern Enlightenment, for more pictures and information. 

Shine A Little Light

I love candles all around the house, I think in my bedroom alone I have about 5. They create such an amazing atmosphere and I must admit that a small part of me enjoyed the load shedding a while back, simply because I could light my candles. 

They smell great and make beautiful décor pieces. There is a very large range of candles for anyone and you can even make your own, which would be a fun DIY project to try over a weekend. Hello Pretty has some beautiful candles, I love the following;

For something fragrant, the ginger lime soy fragranced candle from Royal Afrique du Sud is great. The black textured candle from the Jeli store is something different, I love how big it is! A candle in a glass jar always looks nice in a home, I love this option from Bed Bath Body. Spoil yourself with a few of these moisturising candles from Wema Bodycare. Imagine how beautiful this 6-wick candle would look in the dark? I love the square flat candle from the Jeli store

Colour Palette- Blues

Navy, powder blue, periwinkle, baby blue and duck shell blue; there are so many different shades of blue. I think duck shell blue is my favourite, it literally goes with anything without being too overbearing. There are so many beautiful blue products on Hello Pretty and these are my favourite.

The twisted blue topaz ring from Secrets Unearthed, is beautiful. Who doesn’t like some statement jewellery?

This 60’s chair from Something Blue Living is great and a few of them around your dining room table will definitely add some character.

I love the blue glass seedbead necklace from Blossom Handmade, to add some colour to your outfit.

What’s not to love about the Rattan blue scatter cushion from Phlo Studio?

Something for the kids; Duke the Rhino from Sprouts Kids Co is just the best to cuddle with.

The Perfect Home Office With Hello Pretty

I think that everyone loves the idea of a home office; it’s your creative space that you can do anything you like in, because it’s in your home. Your workspace should be a calm, inviting and an inspiring place for you to be in every day.

As we spend most of our time working, why not make this place beautiful and fun too? Hello Pretty has wonderful products to make up the perfect home office.

In this chaotic world we all need a journal or notebook to keep our lives in order. The OCD part of me likes the idea that everything I need to know and do is on one book. Stockton Goods makes these beautiful notebooks, The Fogg- Lace and The Attenborough- Lace.

The Mini Jack lamp from The Artisan is modern, clean-cut and a great choice to brighten up your workspace on a cloudy day or when you are working late.

A beautiful vase, like Flying Solo from Sugar and Vice, will look great on your desk with some roses.

Last, but not least, you should always be comfortable sitting at your desk. The Lisbon scatter cushion from Phlo Studio, is great to lean against and it looks beautiful too!
