So I can totally see myself embarking on a project like this. We are house hunting at the moment and it's a real toss up between a period property near to town (always been a bit of a dream) or an old 70's bungalow with lots of grounds - with which we would undoubtably do something like this. We will surely know as soon as we walk into it. It will just feel like home.
I have been absent lately. Felix bear and I have been sick (again) with chest infections, colds etc, etc. We seriously couldn't have a healthier lifestyle, we eat really well, live near the beach, I have a great work/life balance, but I can't seem to stop these bugs! Seriously it's insane. Come on sunshine, come out to play and warm us all up already. Burn these bugs away!
P.S. Don't forget to enter my current giveaway on this post.

A nice treat for you this lovely Monday afternoon! What an inspirational space. Gorgeous high ceilings, huge windows, vintage furniture and I just love the leaning art work. I hope you all had a great weekend! I had a lovely time - I spent it in Haarlem with my love, catching up with friends and drinking coffee....It was just great.

Gorgeous friends of mine Tim and Tómas have just renovated their stunning old house situated in Akureyri (north of Iceland). They have truly worked some magic in this place - and I for one, cannot wait to go and stay there. They've mastered the delicate balance of keeping things traditional and cosy whilst finishing in a modern, minimalistic style.
Akureyri is a beautiful city - it is known as "the capital of the north" and it is surrounded by amazing nature. They are taking bookings now, so if you have a trip to Iceland planned this year (so many people are visiting right now) - you must include this little gem on your itinerary.

My good friend Mel snapped this of my baby bear the other day. His eyes look so dark in this picture....Life is great at the moment (apart from a bout of cold that we've all had - for about a month). The work/mamma balance is working out really well. I feel like I've found my flow and I finally feel satisfied that I'm putting enough into both. Felix is changing so much and becoming a really funny, adorable, kind little boy. He's full of energy and definitely has his daddy's cheekiness - seriously he makes my heart melt every day. I really do feel like the luckiest girl in the world.
Wow it's here. 2016. It's just unbelievable, how time passes. So Happy New Year lovely readers! Did you have a good holiday break? Mine was just lovely. Lots of family and friend time - just perfect :)
I'm not going to write a long list of new years resolutions, because throughout the year I'm always trying to improve, be more efficient, get fitter, perfect everything a little more! The list goes on..... But one of my aims is to post more often. My blog takes a hit when I have lots going on (evident in this past advent giveaway). Now is one of those times as the shop is really busy and I am working on a couple of interior projects. It's all good and I am very lucky, but my blog is such a major part of my personal and professional life, that I have to give it some love! So lovely people, thanks for sticking by whilst the posting has been sparse. I endeavour to serve you better!
I'm so sorry that this advent giveaway has been so sporadic and absent. Felix Bear has been unwell and it's been a bit of a struggle balancing everything and being able to post! Anyway, I'm sure you will be so happy with this giveaway - which I will leave open for a few days! My lovely sponsor I Dream Elephants is offering this very cute storage bag from TELLKIDDO. To enter, please hop over to the store and tell me your three favourite items - from anywhere on the store - that won't be easy everything is pretty much gorgeous!
Please leave your comment on this post. Thank you and good luck!
Day 1 of my advent giveaway. I'm am offering something from my own store Story North. A gorgeous neon pink elf that would love to come and spend christmas with you!
