Home Office Revamp

A few months ago my office space had a revamp! For about 5 years my desk space was solid top fold up picnic table and a fold up picnic chair with 2 low Ikea Billy bookshelves I shared with P. This year my desk kinda expanded as I ‘borrowed’ the twin fold up table for desk extension. Things got a little cramped at times, the top wasn’t always clutter free and a trip to Ikea last year got me thinking maybe it’s time for a new desk.

I fell in love with their white faux leather Skruvsta 1950/60’s inspired chair that’s super comfy and said my name as I sat swivelling in. (more…)

Why I like Instyle Magazine

April’s and May’s 2017 covers of US Instyle magazine made me happy. April’s featured Victoria Beckham and with May, Amy Schumer. 2 ladies with 2 totally different body shapes and age. Victoria Beckham gives us thinner lipped girls hope in a social media world of plump lips and lip injections. Amy Schumer proves you don’t have to be a haute corture runway supermodel to be on a cover of an international fashion magazine. Confidence and beauty at 20, 40 and 30

For as long as I can remember I’ve been an US Instyle magazine reader. I don’t think I’ve missed an issue since 2003. I was so happy when I found my then local kiosk sold it in Spain when I moved here. (more…)

Weekend Friday Favourites

I hope you’re having a great weekend! 

Monday’s 2nd Easter or Pentecost here in Catalunya, a regional festivo making this weekend a puente! For me however it’ll be a normal day hopefully making the gym early. I’m still not used to the day of the holiday being on that day. Bad luck if it’s a weekend. I’m still the UK makes that day a Monday.

Anyways, Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have caught my eye or made me smile this week. (more…)

I See You Spring

Happy March!

I’m getting excited. Spring’s saying hello! I can feel it’s buzz in the mornings, it’s warmth, the light’s changing from it’s soft winter glow. Late Winter, early Spring’s coming a close second to my love of Summer. In about 2 weeks I’ll be switching out my winter coat. It’s warm enough early afternoon to have a lighter jacket but the mornings and evenings say different. I’m hoping that saying if March comes in like a lion it goes out like a lamb and vice versa the lion’s roar’s worse that its bite. The next few weeks look sunny and windy and I’ve got my fingers crossed the wind’s the lion. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
