A bohemian life

Couple of recent pins.  Dreaming of packing up the van (if we had one) and finding a spot by the river.

Instead I have a day off to laze on the beach tomorrow and my family hen do at the weekend, so not a bad alternative!!

Do you Pin?

Happy Friday folks!  Yesterday I got my invitation to Pinterest and oh my isn't it addictive!!!  So useful if you're an avid inspiration collector like me.  I have folders crammed full of stuff on my computer and stupidly don't note the source so can never really blog them.  

My boards are very spring/summer at the moment, we've had a bit of sun this week and I'm planning a spring wedding so not surprising those were the images I was drawn to.  Anyway, thought I'd share five images that I'm in love with.

There are, and will be many more if you want to take a look at my pins.  So, I hope you have some nice plans for the weekend, we have family visiting and hopefully our niece from Colin's side and our niece and nephew from my side will be meeting for the first time, they are all under 3 years old.

Oh and if anyone else uses Pinterest, please let me know.  I'd like some people to follow.

Morning; thought I’d share a bit of what I’ve been up to lately.  The last few months have been a bit all over the place as so much has been going on so ‘routine’ hasn’t been part of my vocabulary.  Not that I really like too much of a routine but it helps me get things in order sometimes.  This sunny morning began with a run on the beach and now I’m finally updating my blog.  Yay me!!

So I/we’ve
1 spent our last winter in London, a very busy one it was too
2 finished trading at the Sunday Upmarket :(
3 moved from London to Bournemouth, we live a 5 minute walk from this beautiful beach
4 spent lots of time with family and friends 
5 charity shopped our hearts out finding amazing furniture for our first proper home together (Colin and I lived in a shared flat in London)

6 found bargain artwork for our walls in said charity shops
7 discovered some great places to go for coffee and cake

8 collected fabric for our wedding
9 started making my wedding dress with mum
10 learnt to cook a few more yummy dinners (if I do say so myself)

 11 been making exciting plans for my jewellery line and working on a few new ideas
12 bought bikes and gone for a couple of bike rides
13 turned 30!!! (still not faced up to that one)

14 collected a variety of vases/containers for flowers at our wedding

15 collected pretty plates, just because they’re pretty.

There’s probably a lot more I’ve forgotten but hopefully I’ll be back here more regularly to fill you in (if you’re even that interested).  I hope you've had a good couple of months, spring is on its way, can’t wait!!
