INTERIOR DESIGN | SIMPLE LIVING

The of simplistic way of living appeals to me greatly. My current space only needs to get ever so slightly cluttered and I can feel it affect my mood and train of thought immediately. It's incredible that your surroundings can have that certain side effect to your daily life. I'm also aware that I hoard ridiculous amounts of rubbish that technically lead to this disruption but let's just say it's currently a work in progress of filtering.












Hope you all have a great Tuesday!

Oh boy did stylist Teruyo Mori do good for this editorial in the September issue of Spur magazine shot by Amanda Pratt and featuring model Louise Parker.

Cannot get over how perfect every item of wardrobe is, that sixth dress down is potentially what dreams are made of, no?

Happy Monday! 

Let's grab this week by the horns shall we?

MY SO CALLED LIFE

+ stained glass get's me everytime. It blows my mind to think that so much beauty can be contained in a windowpane.
+ her little face is just too much cuteness to take sometimes and the fact she hates her photo getting taken kills me but she allowed just this one. 
+ I don't think I would ever get bored of waking up to this morning light.
+ finally after reading the book I got to see the movie with my sister this week #thefaultinourstars
+ when it rains and then the sun comes out and you realise moving from your bed is the last thing you want to do.
+ impromptu night visits to ikea are sometimes just what the doctor ordered, especially when the roads are so quiet it feels like you're the only one in the city.
+ gluten free banana cinnamon pancakes are what Sundays were made for.
+ you don't always have to step outside to find a rainbow.
+ having fun playing with sprinkles and planning a future tutorial for the blog.


Happy Sunday darlings!

QUICK STEP | CREAMY BARISTA STYLE COFFEE

I'm not a huge coffee drinker due to my stomachs lack of love for lactose however once in a while on a Saturday morning I will indulge in a creamy almond milk coffee and guess what I make it right in the comfort of my own home. Yep, creamy latte style coffee in minutes and without the aid of a machine. This is such a simple tutorial I feel almost silly even sharing it but occasionally even the simplest of tasks can be downright impossible to achieve without a few step by step hints along the way. These steps shared feature the way in which my mum likes her coffee; milky and sweet. However you can adapt it to whatever your own preference's are and just follow the steps with your own ingredients. 
Creamy Barista Style Coffee

Ingredients:
+ milk (semi-skimmed or full fat)
+ coffee (decaf or regular)
+ sugar (Demerara or white)
You will need:

+ microwave
+ teaspoon
microwavable cup
+ Fill cup nearly to the top with milk

+ Place in microwave and heat until the milk just begins to bubble (shown in images above) usually around one to two minutes depending on the wattage of your microwave. I have an 850W and it takes 1 min 30 secs.
+ Remove from microwave and add sugar immediately followed by the coffee.
+ Stir well until completely mixed into the hot milk.

+ Return cup of coffee to the microwave for one final 30 second heat.

+ Remove and enjoy

See? I told you it was ridiculously easy and yes whilst it's not overly frothy it has got the most deliciously creamy smooth taste reminiscent of your local coffee shop.

HIGH FIVE FRIDAY

sea of blooming dreams: giveaway // ban.do agenda
1. On The Agenda
Work weeks can be tough, especially if you have a lot of projects on and very little time to play. So what if the solution was making your day's a little lighter with the aid of an all in one fun stop seventeen month (yes seventeen) organiser that not only comes with the most amazing selection of stickers but also fun "to do's" for when you need a change of routine. It seems Ban.do have created just the thing to ensure your Monday to Fridays are a little more bearable. I'm in! Grab one of your own here.
2. Talking About My Girl
I've had the biggest craving to watch this movie for the longest time. I may just have to bite the vintage movie bullet and watch it this weekend. I remember I went to the cinema with my mum and dad when this first got released and then persisted to rent it from the video store consecutively for an embarrassingly long time afterwards.
#Braids
3. Weave Together
Summer requires some handy up do hairstyles to help combat frizz and the inevitable heat. I think I may have found my signature look in the style of the multi braid. Easy enough to achieve on my own with an air or effortless cool. 
4.Not a Cloud in The Sky 
Ever since I came home from my travels the weather has been delightful. Very rarely in Scotland do you get the opportunity to enjoy a completely cloud free day so I felt especially spoilt yesterday when the view from my garden looked like this from morning to night. 
5. Quote of the week
I've never been afraid to be a yes or a no person, I believe everyone has the choice to say either and stick with it. I also greatly appreciate and cherish my personal solitude. However this quote made me realise that I've never truly been alone, without anyone acting in some sense as a safety blanket or net. I thought I was someone that pushed the corner's of my comfort zone but now I'm not too sure. The great thing about this realisation is that it can be rectified at any moment or time and for that ability of freedom I am also grateful.


Happy Friday! It's almost the weekend!!!
