art frames Where to buy art frames for your prints and photos.

Many of you who follow me here on the blog and instagram know how I adore styling up a gallery wall. Here is a little glimpse of my new art wall in my dining room.

I often get asked where I buy my art frames from, so I thought I’d share with you a cool site called eFrame that I have discovered.

eFrame is a great site to buy frames of all sizes and styles. You can also get custom sizes and colours too. They will also mount your pictures and even print your digital images to frame. I usually pick white art frames to showcase my colourful art prints. I got a collection of custom 15mm white wood paint frames made. You can see them now on my wall. I love how the art wall has made my dining room look so bright and cheerful. What do you think? Now to introduce you to the talented creatives who have sent their work in to me to showcase.

The ice lolly art prints are by Rocket Jack Design. The Hell Yeah and vintage floral prints are by Printed Weird. I have blogged about most of the art prints here before, but there are a few new additions.

The orange and leopard print is by Fox & Velvet. The heart print is by Doodlemoo. It’s wonderful to have a trusted destination to get my art frames now.

The art frames are of excellent quality and I highly recommend eFrame.

Hope you’ve enjoyed my new gallery wall. It was really fun to create.

I will be back with some exciting new stylings and collaborations soon.

Finally, wishing you a wonderful day.

Valentines day gift 5 more days till Valentine’s Day. This “10 cool Valentine’s Day gift ideas that ladies would love” post is for anyone wanting to buy something cool and unique for that special day.

This is also for all the lovely ladies reading, who may want to send a link to their other half.

Everything I have curated here, are things that I absolutely love, and would never give up.

VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT NO. 1 – A GORGEOUS GALLERY WALL OF ART PRINTS. Valentine's day gift Firstly, I’ve curated my new favourite art prints here. Why not surprise your love one with one of these prints?

From top left to right : Rollin by Nanas of Anarchy, Frida Kahlo by Sodacake, Best Day ever by Stitch and Press.

From bottom left to right : Daisy’s flower shop by Milly England, Love Lives here by The Native State, and Penguin by Lucy Begent.

VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT NO. 2 – AESOP HAND BALM. This is my absolute favourite hand cream and it’s from Aesop.

It’s called Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm and is made of Mandarin Rind, Rosemary leaf and Cedar Atlas.

Whenever I put some on, everyone turns around because the scent is amazing and it’s like being in a spa.

It’s wonderful as a moisturiser too, as my hands get very dry with all that hand washing as a doctor.

VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT NO. 3 JO MALONE PERFUME. What lady wouldn’t want a bottle of Jo Malone perfume? This is always a winner.

I’ve recently discovered that you can mix and match the Jo Malone scents to create your own unique signature scent.

My favourite Jo Malone scent is English Pear and Freesia, because it reminds me of Spring, very in line with my personality.

I was so lucky to be gifted this limited edition gold capped, red label bottle of English Pear and Freesia from Jo Malone for Chinese New Year. Why stop at one?

I’ve used the Wild Bluebell scent to partner the English Pear scent, which is delightful.

VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT NO. 4 – A VINTAGE CHRISTIAN DIOR NECKLACE. Here’s something unique, a vintage piece of jewellery.

This necklace is vintage Christian Dior from Hardware Vintage Jewellery.

VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT NO.5 – SAINT LAURENT PURSE. What can I say? I think a big kiss would be in order if any lady receives this beautiful Saint Laurent purse. Ladies am I right?

Men reading this, do take note.

VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT NO.6 – TIFFANY & CO. Tiffany & Co is another instant winner. There is such a huge selection of gifts to pick from.

One can go all out with diamonds or for those with a smaller budget, try one of their beautiful sterling silver jewellery that can also be engraved for a personal touch.

VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT NO.7 – KAY BOJESEN WOODEN DESIGN ICONS. A Kay Bojesen wooden figure is a lovely gift for design lovers. I already own a huge collection of these figures.

This Zebra wooden figure was a gift from my husband, and you can buy one at Skandium.

VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT NO.8 – BELLA FREUD TEASET FOR PLINTH UK. This is a gift for the Feminist in your life.

The pretty pink and white tea set was created as a collaboration between Bella Freud, Gillian Wearing and Plinth.

To mark the 2018 centenary of women’s suffrage in the UK, a statue of Millicent Fawcett, a feminist icon, was created by artist Gillian Wearing in London’s Parliament Square on April 24th 2018.

This tea set was therefore inspired by Fawcett’s message.

VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT NO.9 –  PRETTY SILICONE PLACEMATS FROM BY MAY STOCKHOLM. I had to share these pretty nude polka dot silicone placemats that I spotted at a trade fair last year.

They are from By May Stockholm. This would be a lovely gift to go with the teaset.

VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT NO.10 – THE NEW GOLD APPLE MAC BOOK AIR. The gold Apple mac book air is to die for. This would be a wonderful Valentine’s day gift for a tech loving lady, moreover it is super light, fast and has back lit keys. Cool right? So there you go, I think that there is definitely a Valentine’s day gift here that any lady would love.

In other words, look no further. Click through to buy or send the link to a clueless half. Wishing you a happy Valentine’s day if you are celebrating. (AD – Gifted products within this post but there are NO affiliate links).

Fun and cool Teenage girl bedroom ideas that rock.

If I ask you to visualise a teen girl’s room, what do you see?

I’m sure the word ‘messy’ would feature frequently right?

You wouldn’t be wrong there, because ‘messy ‘ is a normal teen’s rite of passage.

Then if I ask you, where do you see your teen spending most of his or her time whilst at home? I wouldn’t be surprised if you said ‘in bed’.

Bed in our household has become synonymous with a teen’s hq, all made easy with accessible technology and entertainment nowadays, so there’s no need to get out of bed.

So a laptop in bed with headphones, watching You Tube or Netflix is not an unusual sight.

Does this all sound familiar?

The image above is how the bedroom looked before the revamp. Seeing as the bed is such a crucial location for all activity and I must admit, productivity for school work too, there’s no point in fighting against it any more.

So, ‘if you can’t beat them, join them’ right?

Here is how it looks now. As you can see, I have stripped all the wallpaper off the walls and painted it white. I wanted it to feel light and bright.

I indulged in my daughter’s wish for a double bed, and got this white metal bed at the White Company Christmas sale. What I love about this bed is its height. There is ample room below for storage boxes or even a pull out mattress for when she has friends over.

A new bed means a new comfortable mattress right?  After some research, we decided to give the Casper mattress a try.

My daughter gave it the thumbs up after just one night.

Here’s a little run down on the 4 foam layers that make this mattress special:

The top layer latex foam has a springy elasticity that allows for easy movement and weight shifts. It also allows for air circulation to aid a cooler sleep, much needed with the current heatwave.

I was surprised how well my daughter slept, despite the windows being closed during this heat.

The second layer of the mattress is a memory foam that provides comfort.

The third layer is another memory foam layer that provides Zoned Support ( very important for a teen who sits in bed all day). The base layer adds durability. Teenage girl bedroom With the mattress ticked off the list, what next for a teenage girl bedroom? I reckon some comfortable and stylish bedding.

I recently experienced sleeping with some linen bedding, and I couldn’t believe I had never considered it before.

It was super soft and comfortable, and kept me cool during those hot breezeless nights.

My daughter’s pink stone washed linen bedding is from Piglet in Bed. She loves it so much, that I think laundry day may soon become a tug of war.

It’s such a beautiful natural pink too. I’m seriously having bedding envy now. Teenage girl bedroom ideas No bedroom is complete without a gallery wall.

I always turn to my favourite art print store Desenio, when looking for beautiful pieces to style. These gorgeous pink and blue Miami and California photographic prints from Desenio were selected by my daughter.  She also picked the cute pink and green palm trio of prints above the head of her bed. She then completed the look with some cool pillow cases from Urban Outfitters.  That cuddly sloth on her bed was a gift from me.  I feel so happy and optimistic when I lie on her bed, looking at the blue skies of the photos on her wall.

This is but one corner of my daughter’s bedroom. The other parts of her bedroom will be shared soon.  I’m actually lying on her bed now as I type this post ( whilst she is out partying). Teens these days! Tomorrow she is jetting off for a week with her friends to Cannes. I can’t remember my teen years being like that.

Anyway, I’m digressing. The Casper mattress is so incredibly comfortable, I’m nearly falling asleep. Hope you’ve enjoyed the post. Doesn’t this Teenage girl bedroom look so much more inviting than before? ( Do scroll back up to the top of this page to see the “Before” again). I know it’s definitely being appreciated by my little sloth. I mean the soft toy on the bed lol!

It’s a calm space conducive to studying, more than Netflix at least, I hope.

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.
