One of each and all ready for the weekend. 🤞 for some lie-ins in the morning #Ishouldbesolucky #friyay #theweekendstartshere
🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧 A little throwback to what we got up to this summer @maltacamp ! We were honoured to provide Team GB with our union jack Pyjamas. The camp saw 500 people gather from 23 nations across Europe for a week of fun in Hampshire. It was spectacular 🕺💃 #communityovercompetition #bigsmallbusiness #justaboutcoping #makersgonnamake #maltacamp2018 #creativebiz #creativelifehappylife #shopsmall #smallbusinessowner
So... it may be a little early for some, but you can never be too organised can you?! Join us and lots of other amazing kids brands at the fabulous @kidsarcade and @thecotswoldconnection pop-up to get a start with you #Christmas shopping. This Friday in #Burford

Day 4 of #mybrilliantbrand // Who I love to work with? Well, when you are pursuing a career in something that brings you real joy, there is no greater feeling than sharing your experience and knowledge to help others. So I work with busy and big hearted families to get them out of their interiors rut. They might need to make their space work harder for their expanding family (in other words tidy away the plastic tat). Or reclaim a much needed grown up space in their loft extension. Or perhaps they are struggling to balance modern family living with achieving the right look for a period home renovation. It means so much more to me to work with families who come from a place where they value connecting with me. It means I can get to the heart of their home and use my creative vision to celebrate its uniqueness. And the thing that the families I work with value the most? The warmth that comes by passing the baton to me, reassured that I will do my very best to nail it. So when they say the familiar words “I just need someone to do it for me” (because they don’t have the head space) or “I don’t know where to start” (when a paint chart gives them the heeby jeebies). My reply? “Pop the kettle on and I will be over soon with cake*”. There begins the lovely story of how together we made their house feel more home. *All cake is provided by me. I don’t expect baked goods on arrival! #teenroom #homeisafeeling #interiorstylist #interiordesigner #creativelifehappylife #colourfulhome #midcenturystyle #newinteriorsontheblock #walltowallstyle #myhomevibe #ihavethisthingwithcushions #colorfulinterior #surreymum #surreymummy #surreylife #surreybusiness #creativeentrepeneur #smallandmightybusiness #girlsroom #businesswithheart #sorealhomes #ekbbhome #dailydecordetail #mystylesmile #mycreativebiz #bigsmallbusiness #bedroomdecor #styleithappy
September is transient. A month of slow change. Gentle. Softly moving us into autumn with milky sunshine and cool winds that take your breath away. I like to think of it as nature’s way of shaking off summer excesses and pressing restart. - I’ve made a few life changes this month, given myself a big boot up the backside and generally tried to move things forward, gently, but without fear. I’m launching a coffee club for small business owners who want to be part of a supportive face-to-face group to help them work on their marketing intentionally and with confidence - it’s an idea I’ve had for yonks and so I finally made myself take action. The feedback so far has been wonderful - I really should have done it ages ago (lesson learned right there) so expect more on that soon. - Has September got you in the mood for change? If so, how are you planning to nudge yourself forward this month? 🍂 . . . . . #mynestandburrow #thelocalwayfarer #smallmomentsofcalm #natureandnourish #everydayquality #elevatetheeveryday #alifeofintention #moodofthemoment #pursurewhatislovely #thisishowihueit #littlestoriesofmylife #kitchentablebusiness #creativewomen #copywriterlife #agameoftones #athertable #thisdelightfullife #smallbizsupport #tellyourstory #makeitblissful #savouringtheseason #workyourway #smallmomentsofcalm #supportsmallbusiness #simpleandstill #wearethemakers #bigsmallbusiness
Well and truly traversing the comfort zone today with a picture of my actual self! It doesn’t come easy to the girl who seriously considered not being in her own wedding photos! 😉😂 Anyway, its Day 3 of #mybrilliantbrand and how it feels to work together on your home design project. Well, there are plenty of smiles, because working together feels uncomplicated, inspiring, easy and fun. I love to get the whole family involved in the briefing process if that’s your bag, but I also know that if you are time poor or don’t know where to start, you might just want me to look, listen, get it and get on with it. You will feel lighter knowing that I will leave you with a warm, balanced space that reflects all that is you in your home. And then there will be some more smiles. Just because. ❤️ #deskgoals #homeisafeeling #interiorstylist #interiordesigner #creativelifehappylife #colourfulhome #brightboldhome #newinteriorsontheblock #myhousethismonth #walltowallstyle #myhomevibe #interiorstyling #colorfulinterior #surreymum #surreymummy #surreylife #surreybusiness #creativeentrepeneur #smallandmightybusiness #onegirlband #businesswithheart #sorealhomes #ekbbhome #dailydecordetail #mystylesmile #mycreativebiz #bigsmallbusiness #mycreativeinterior #styleithappy
#Septembuary is in full swing and I am back to business with much gusto! To kick start, I am joining the queen of creating brand clarity @thebrand_stylist in her #mybrilliantbrand challenge. Time to refocus on what Homeshaped is all about. Blowing my own trumpet still makes me do this 😬, but I am throwing myself into the challenge and getting out of my own way so that I can move my business forward. I warble on about ‘home is a feeling’ because I truly believe that the magic of home is how it feels and it gives me real joy to help others find that magic. Interior design means so much more than a new coat of paint or some snazzy curtains and it doesn’t have to be beyond the realms. I offer accessible, no sweat interior styling, a little bit like a hug for your home. I intuitively see what makes your home feel uniquely you and celebrate that, shaping balanced and comforting spaces for your family to enjoy together. How you feel about your home when you bundle through your front (or back, who’s to say 😉) door is what matters to me. #mybrilliantbrand #homeisafeeling #interiordesign #interiorstylist #interiordesigner #creativelifehappylife #myflatlayslay #newinteriorsontheblock #myhousethismonth #walltowallstyle #myhomevibe #interiorstyling #surreymum #surreymummy #surreylife #surreybusiness #creativeentrepeneur #smallandmightybusiness #onegirlband #businesswithheart #sorealhomes #ekbbhome #dailydecordetail #modernrustic #mycreativebiz #bigsmallbusiness #flatlay #mycreativeinterior

Signs of it. 🍂 - Even though the temperatures are still rocketing here in Germany there are little glimpses of the changing season heading our way. The dew on the car this morning, the russet leaves starting to fall (although that may be as much due to the insanely warm weather that’s hung out with us so much this summer) and the back to school feeling that, for me, signals that start of a new year. - I’ve always loved September, with it’s new pencil cases and shiny school shoes. It’s like a clean slate after the summer months of fun and has much less pressure on being virtuous and setting huge daunting goals than the actual New Year. - Whilst on holiday this week I’ve planned out my next quarterly goals (I prefer this to planning out annually - I find it more flexible). It feels good to be going into September with a clear plan in mind. My main one is to finally book a date for my marketing workshop for small business owners - I’ve talked about it for a while, but now’s the time to take action. - Have you made any new plans for your business? Do share them, I’d love to know what’s on your autumnal horizon 🖤 . . . . . #natureandnourish #mybloominglens #everydayquality #alifeofintention #inspiredbyloveliness #littlestoriesofmylife #thisishowihueit #thesehappysquares #smallbizsupport #tellyourstory #mysimplemoments #agameoftones #thisdelightfullife #smallbusinessgoals #risingtidesociety #myseasonalstory #supportthemakers #nothingisordinary #bigsmallbusiness #supportsmallbusiness #fromabove #buildyourbrand

How is everyone’s Monday going? Today was a day of planning (&lots of coffee) as I’m away for two weeks from thurs ☀️🍹🍸😀! I have two little ones under 5, so maybe the 🍹🍸 is a bit hopeful 🤣 Hope you’re having a good Monday xxx
Congrats @ibikelikeagirl on your achievement! We know you've worked really hard over the past few months. Look forward to you being back in the shop and implementing the things you learned. Regrann from @ibikelikeagirl - It's official. I own a business. Haha. Jokes aside, the Goldman Sachs 10k Small Businesses program was the best thing I could have done for myself and my business. It's changed my life and my mindset. I've met the most amazing people along the way and looking forward to meeting more alumni of the program. There are great things in store for @localhubbc !!! #10ksbdccd #10ksmallbiz #smallbiz #babson #dallas #bigsmallbusiness - #regrann

Look how beautiful these leather and wood tassel keyrings are!😍 Here at CreateGiftLove we love natural materials, with almost all of our products being largely made from wood, leather, or a combination of the two. We love how individual this makes each item and how nature dictates their exact textures, colours and patterns. It means that no two CGL items are the same. Good news all: There’s evidence to suggest that natural materials can have a positive impact on your well being 🙌 and we’ve written a blog post all about it. (Link as always in bio) Have a good eve all xxx

Here at CreateGiftLove we design and make all our products in our workshop. Lots has changed since we started in 2012, but something that remains integral to what we do is that all our materials are responsibly sourced.

A big hello to everyone who’s new around here 👋 Just thought I’d put a face to the account 👍 I’m Emily and it all started in the shed, now there are 9 in team CGL and I’m no longer in the shed 😁 Here are a few facts about @creategiftlove... 1. We are based in the beautiful New Forest 2. We make everything in our workshop 3. All items are made to order, so tell us what you want 😁 4.

Hello and Happy Monday!! Let’s start this week strong! Write down the answers to the following questions. 📌 What is your current challenge or difficult situation? 📌 Do a “brain detox” of positives and negatives. 📌 Take the negatives, write the contrasting quality you do want. This is your clarity; knowing what you want is the key to change. 📌 Stand in the power of clarity by putting action behind the intention, turning the negatives into positives. #overcomer #yourlifewithpurpose #smallbizlife #businesscoach #smallbusinessowners #ladybosslifestyle #mondaymorning #newbeginnings #planningcommunity #plannerlove #mompreneur #momboss #ladyboss #bossbabes #shoplocal #bigsmallbusiness #successstrategy #successfulwomen #faithoverfear #achievemore #believe

🍓🌱THE ECOSYSTEM🌱🍓 Wow, what a week so far... I couldn’t really work out why I’ve been feeling so unproductive of late and then I sat down and reflected for a few minutes. Not only have I had my busiest month ever by a scale of about 5 x my normal number of coaching sessions. I’m over booked again in August, it’s been totally, completely and utterly too hot to work and I’ve a toddler to negotiate with daily... phew! Oh, and did I mention I’m also 5 months pregnant? It’s not just me either. Recently two of my biggest client success stories in terms of business growth have also all but burnt themselves out too which has taught me, and them, a few important lessons. Yes, they’ve both more than doubled their turnover, but they’re also both exhausted. Because whenever you make a big change, there is an impact on the whole ecosystem that makes up your life. You can’t scale one thing up without dialling down on something else. And because they’re both such high achievers they’ve carried on trying to do EVERYTHING as well as chase those goals. Trying to do, or have it all without reviewing how it all fits together will often come at a cost, and when we ignore the signals, that cost is usually our health. So this afternoon, I’ll be taking some time out to rest and recalibrate. Yes the blog won’t get written and no, the office won’t be tidy but it means I’ll be fit to fight another day tomorrow and I KNOW my favourite productive self is waiting on the other side . #linkinbio #successmindset #getshitdone #leadsucceedgrow  #resiliencemindset #femalefounders  #resilience #fearlessfemales  #womeninbusiness #businessgrowth  #biggoalsbigdreams #foundationsforsuccess  #womeninbusiness #mindsetcoach  #inspireothers #impostersyndrome  #positivevibes #persueyourpassion  #chaseyourdreams #hersuccess  #savvybusinessowner #growthmindset  #livelovegrow #bigsmallbusiness  #buildyourbrand

Monday wisdom from @ariannahuff 💙 It’s a week of endings for us, as Jake finishes primary school Friday. Alongside a super-full work schedule. ☕️ But soaking up every glorious moment, as summer promises to last.

Weekend pause. 💫 Does anyone else feel the weekends come + go in a blur of activity at the moment? Much as I love Mondays, they come round far too quickly. ⏳ Taking a moment to reflect on the week before we go forth... 🥂 Reminding myself of some real wins in between the to-do list that looks vaguely similar to Monday morning. 👩🏼‍💻 What were your highlights? Happy Friday lovelies. 💖 . . . #pr #prconsultant #prmentor #mediarelations #tellyourstory #littlestoriesofmylife #creativebusiness #creativityfound #connecttocollaborate #creativehappylife #collectivelycreate #buildyourbrand #bigsmallbusiness #consciousbusiness #superselfmade
HOW DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO DESCRIBE YOU? Three times in the last week I've heard successful women described as 'a bit of a handful'. As in 'oh, yes, she's successful but I've heard she's a bit of a handful. Do you know what I say to that? Bring it the F on! Because quite honestly, I'd really rather be remembered as a bit of a handful than not remembered at all. I'd much prefer to challenge the things I disagree with, complain about bad service, ask for the things I need and get shit done than tiptoe through life worrying that someone might think I'm a bit difficult. So if you're reading this and you're thinking just how much more you could get done if you didn't care what people thought and said then I say do it anyway... and let them look on and wish they had your nerve. 📷 @catrinarwelphotography #leadsucceedgrow #resiliencemindset #femalefounders #resilience #fearlessfemales #womeninbusiness #businessgrowth #biggoalsbigdreams #foundationsforsuccess #womeninbusiness #mindsetcoach #inspireothers #impostersyndrome #positivevibes #persueyourpassion #chaseyourdreams #savvybusinessowner #growthmindset #livelovegrow #bigsmallbusiness #letsdothis
🌿It has officially been a year since I started my dōTERRA business. I get butterflies looking back at how far I’ve come. In this time I’ve helped hundreds of people choose natural solutions to support their health and this makes me super happy. I initially fell in love with the oils, however, as I learned more about the company I knew I had to share. - 🍃Before I started with this biz it had been on my heart to find something to pursue that aligned with my beliefs and ethos. When I bought my first starter kit with dōTERRA I had no idea that I’d be making a decision that would lead me to a massive change in the course of my life. - 🌱Since choosing this business model I have met the most amazing, like-minded people, I have learned how to support my health and well-being like never before and I have also learned so much about myself and who I am by opening myself up to incredible personal development. - 🍂I’m totally in this biz for the long haul, dōTERRA is an honest, ethical and generous company that is totally aligned with who I am and what I stand for. I’m beyond proud to put my name to it and cannot wait to see what the future holds in this space. I’m always looking for people to walk this journey with but it truly isn’t for everyone. It involves grit, consistency and a passion for health and wellness. So if you’re looking for a change then please do shoot me a message as this business is changing lives every single day. It’s just so much more fun when we’re in it together supporting and lifting each other up which is exactly the beautiful culture of dōTERRA. - ⭐️JULY IS GOING TO BE BIG!⭐️ - #doterra #doterraessentialoils #essentialoils #girlboss #biz #personaldevelopment #smallbiz #bigsmallbusiness #rankadvancement

Hello friends! I’ve taken a couple of days off from posting because frankly, my head has been spinning since the launch of ✨Halcyon✨Tinker Tailor’s first scented candle, the first in a range of home scents and bath products. . . Its surreal to see my brand come to life in this way and for the first time since I opened @tinkertailoronlineshop I’ve allowed myself a pat on the back. . . But very few things can be achieved completely alone so I want to give a very special thanks to Jen @joinstorelondon for bringing my vision of a scent inspired by my Mediterranean roots to life using the finest quality ingredients 🌿🍊🏝Jen made every single votive of Halcyon by hand in her London studio. How wonderful is that? . . The beautiful packaging came via @seventytwostudio. Katherina was so in tune with my ideas and my vision that at times I wondered whether she could actually see inside my head! . . Not forgetting @thisdadtravels who is my biggest cheerleader. He sees me though the good days and the bad days and never doubts my ability to make Tinker Tailor a success - and believe me there are days when I question why on earth I set myself on this path? . . Then there’s you, my friends, followers, customers, all the wonderful people who support and encourage me along the way. None of this would be possible without you. . . If you made it this far, thank you and I’m sorry this post sounds like an acceptance speech 🙈 I just can’t pretend that this is all me. The truth is that Halcyon is the fruit of collaborative working and community support and it’s right to give credit where it’s due so THANK YOU to each and every one of you. You can buy Halcyon in store or via our online shop. Happy Sunday! 💗 Photography: @tiatalula
Morning 👋🏼 I’ve been rather quiet on here lately. I don’t think Instagram likes me very much anymore, my likes are way down. I think a lot of people are finding the same thing, but it does hurt when you put out a picture (especially something you’ve made or designed) and it gets half as many likes as a picture of a sofa! Maybe I need to up my designs, who knows! . . . Anyway, just giving you all a little Friday ‘hello’ letting you know I’m still here, forever faffing about whether to post a picture, and is it good enough!! So here’s one of me, taken by the super talented @tiatalula one of the loveliest ladies I’ve had the pleasure to meet! 💕This was at the @marthabrookldn Wedding brunch last month, and what a splendid morning that was! Coffee, croissants and creative women! . . . Happy weekends folks, I’m taking Cam to @duckandwaffle tomorrow as a belated birthday treat. 🎉 Although when I told him the table was booked for 9am he wasn’t best pleased 🙈 have a good one, let’s hope the sun shines. ☀️☀️☀️ . . . . . #girlboss #womeninbusiness #workingwomen #businessgoals #smallbusinesslove #dailydecordose #interiorlovers #curatedlife #kinfolklife #littlethingsinlife #seekinspirecreate #upliftheeveryday #lightinspired #darlingmovement #thesimpleeveryday #morningslikethese #daysofsmallthings #searchwandercollect #softminimalstyle #nestandflourish #nothingisordinary #momentsofmine #elevatetheeveryday #myfashiondiary #pursuepretty #bloomin2018 #bigsmallbusiness #stylegram #whatiwore #outfitideas

Heart Work & Hard Work » . You know that feeling when you’re back on track 🙏🏼? When you’re pursuing work you’re excited about? And heading to your inbox is *actually* fun?! . Attending @IllumeRetreat this year was like pressing ‘reset’ on my ambitions. . Through the other attendees and speakers, I got to open up about my biggest fears in business (and life!), and from day one it was clear this was about ‘heart work’ as much as ‘hard work’ ✨ . When you run your own business it’s COMPLETELY normal to feel derailed from your purpose from time to time. . ‘Growing pains’ can be SO uncomfortable, but they are just that. They are a sign that you’re growing, and pursuing your path. . If you’re right in the middle of a ‘growth spurt’ please know that 1) you’re not alone. You have a whole TRIBE of other business-owners, creatives and big-dreamers sharing your discomfort. 2) you are laying the foundations for your future. EVERY time I’ve gone through a ‘growing pain’ I’ve come out the other side clearer, more confident and with a greater sense of purpose. . It’s cheesy but, when I feel ‘swamped’ or ‘buried’ by my own thoughts and derailment, I like to think of seeds being planted. You can’t see their fruits or flowers, but they’re there. And soon enough they’ll be nudging their way to the surface and sharing their blooms with everyone 🌿 . Today, and this week, my hope for you is that you continue pursuing your path, knowing that ALL the seeds you’re planting WILL come to fruition. That you lean into your intuition. And that you prioritise the things which REALLY fuel you, in your home life and in your hustle 👌🏼 . Can you relate to these ‘growing pains’? What’s your experience? #TheElginAvenue #MonicaBeatrice #BigSmallBusiness . Blazer & T-Shirt @CrewClothing , Ph. @CharlotteBryerAshPhoto
HOW DO YOU MEASURE SUCCESS IN YOUR WORK? _ Today is a good day. The start of a new month means planning for the month ahead and reflecting on the previous month. What's worked, what hasn't, what we need to change? _ Last month I had my media relations hat on for client @claudiandfin. I still get a thrill when I see success and get to see coverage for clients in the press. I love online content but there's something much more thrilling about making into a new issue of a mag. The focus was on health/food titles and here's just a selection of the mags my client made it into this month. HAPPY DAYS. _ Most people assume PR is purely media relations. It's so much more than that but media relations is an area of my job I truly love and even after all these years, the thrill of column inches is still strong! _ Happy June, Happy Friday, Happy Weekend lovelies. . . . #pr #prconsultant #prmentor #prgirl #mediarelations #tellyourstory #littlestoriesofmylife #creativebusiness #connecttocollaborate #myworkhappy #creativehappylife #buildyourbrand #bigsmallbusiness #successstory #success #happyclients #dreambig #dreambigger #theeverydaygirl #prlife #lovepr #gossipgirlpr
So two weeks tomorrow, I’m sharing my PR starter class for creative businesses with a wonderful group of small business owners at @herostockbridge. 💫 I’ve designed the class with busy entrepreneurs in mind + a focus on actionable steps to build confidence in communications. 💥 We’re really going to get under the skin of their businesses and dig deep into how they can share their stories with the media to get amazing coverage. 📰 This inspiring bunch will leave the session with a clear PR vision, a media gold list, a better media understanding, a mapped out media kit, draft press release + editorial calendar. 🧗‍♀️ If you’ve been thinking about PR, I’ve written a post on how PR can help your small business grow, covering: ⭐️PR as a business strategy ⭐️Telling the story behind your business ⭐️How to build influence through PR ⭐️Supporting content marketing ⭐️Boosting the bottom line Hope it helps you get clearer on PR in your business.

This morning I’m flying to Majorca for @thebrandstylist retreat. 4 days away to focus on nothing but how I take my business to the next level. I feel so lucky to have this opportunity. While I’m there I’m going to: ✨💆🏼‍♀️✨ RELAX Real creativity comes from the subconscious mind. Being ‘on’ all the time means we’re working in our conscious minds, constantly thinking and developing decision fatigue. It’s absolutely essential to give yourself the space to switch off and let the ideas flow. 🌟🖼🌟 REFLECT Physically taking a step back to look at where your business is, creating physical distance between you and the day to day gives you a different, more abundant perspective. Taking the time to look at what’s working, what’s not working, what you could do more of, or less of and so on is an incredibly powerful way to create the breakthroughs you need. 💥💪🏻💥 RECHARGE Running a business is HARD WORK! It’s time to recharge and renew, ready for the next chapter... watch this space! #leadsucceedgrow #resiliencemindset #femalefounders #resilience #fearlessfemales #womeninbusiness #businessgrowth #biggoalsbigdreams #foundationsforsuccess #womeninbusiness #mindsetcoach #inspireothers #impostersyndrome #positivevibes #persueyourpassion #chaseyourdreams #hersuccess #savvybusinessowner #growthmindset #livelovegrow #bigsmallbusiness #buildyourbrand #flowers #inbloom

Sneeeeaaaakk preview of the amazing flowers for my stand at The Business Show tomorrow. Delighted they’re by one of my very favourite female led businesses @roccoflowers Why flowers at a business show? Because I help the women I work with blossom and bloom and I wanted to express that in the most beautiful way possible. It’s not too late to book, and tickets are free. Plus if you come and visit me on stand 160 - who could resist - you’ll be in with a chance of winning a strategic business review worth £1250 #linkinbio #leadsucceedgrow #resiliencemindset #femalefounders #resilience #fearlessfemales #womeninbusiness #businessgrowth #biggoalsbigdreams #foundationsforsuccess #womeninbusiness #mindsetcoach #inspireothers #impostersyndrome #positivevibes #persueyourpassion #chaseyourdreams #hersuccess #savvybusinessowner #growthmindset #livelovegrow #bigsmallbusiness #buildyourbrand #flowers #inbloom

Shelf day at #myhousethismonth These shelves (on constant high alert for me advancing with another trinket/book to faff with) carve out my work space. Painting this corner in the (days are numbered) dining room has created a little nook for me to work on client briefs, build my new business and watch birds scuffling in the hedge. It’s not all work work work! 😂 Oh and please have a look at my Stories for a remedy discovered for those wonky ‘straight’ lines. ☝🏼 #faffing #shelfstyling #myhomevibe #myinteriorvibe #myinteriorstyletoday #interiorstylist #interiorinspo #abmlifeisbeautiful #homestyling #cornerofmyhome #spotlightonmyhome #mycreativeinterior #brightboldhome #eclectichome #cosyupyourworld #mydomaine #styleithappy #howivintage #mystylishspace #mycreativelife #surreyinteriordesigner #smallandmightybusiness #mycreativebiz #creativelifehappylife #nestandthrive #pocketofmyhome #doerupper #plantstagram #bigsmallbusiness
Hi all, How lovely was the wkend? ☀️ 🍦 So nice for the sun to make an appearance, fingers crossed it sticks around until October 🤞😁 I'm still in love with our coin purses, such beautiful ice-cream pastel shades, perfect for Summer, they look so good together 😍 Happy Wednesday guys xxx
Let there be LIGHT ⚡️ Windows done, 1 actual billion projects left to go 💅🏽 #anewsentimentalshop is only a few blocks away from our current spot, for anyone worried we were leaving our beloved neighborhood 💖 My mother’s family dairy farm actually spanned this area almost a century ago and my Pa opened his machine shop just down the road in 1952. Mom & I both grew up playing in his office & factory off Defoor, across the street from the church at which my parents would meet & marry. And a mile or so into Buckhead, our homestead, where my parents now live, was grandmomma’s world, a magical forest home in the city. This place, this city, it’s one of the dearest parts of my heart. It’s our legacy and our lasting love. We’re not obsessed with spreading out, but with moving Atlanta UP ✨ #weloveatl #familybusiness #smallbusiness #bigsmallbusiness 💛
At what stage in life did you start to think it was important to take time out for self care? For me it was after having children, I instinctively gave the whole of myself to caring for them and it was only when my youngest was around 2, I thought I need to start carving out some time for me.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I would love to know when it was for you. If you are short of time type A, B, C in the comments below.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A) After having children⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ B) After an illness ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ C) I still don't carve out time for me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #theeverygirl #therisingtidesociety #womeninbusiness #bigsmallbusiness #flashesofdelight #theartofslowliving #thatauthenticfeeling #yoga #wellnessjourney #createdtocreate #alifeofintention #myeverydaymagic #seekmoments #lightworker #consciousliving #soulpurpose #bekindtoyourself #morningscenes #wellnessday #selfesteemboost #cultivatingcalm #meditationandmindfulness #naturalhealth #mindbodyconnection #embracelife #listentoyourheart #openheart

May Day. Gravy day. After a weekend of soul nourishing, off duty chat, I returned to a fup off great to do list (no.1 my branding☝🏼) & bafoozlement (special g-day word) over what to post on the squares. Because mostly my home is a wood chip wonderland on the slow boat to recovery. (👉🏻to see some special wall textures). Then along came #instasham and wise words echoing from the weekend troop and now that wood chip worry? It’s on the gravy ⛵️outta here. 😂 Happy gravy day folks. @born.voyage @melanieflood #woodchipwonderland #friendspiration #girlssupportgirls #abmlifeisbeautiful #smallandmightybusiness #happiness #interiorstylist #interiorinspo #mycreativelife #mycreativebiz #creativelifehappylife #myhomevibe #styleithappy #myinteriorvibe #myinteriorstyletoday #interiorinspo #nestandthrive #mygorgeousgaff #interiordesign #interiorsinspiration #cornerofmyhome #pocketofmyhome #doerupper #spotlightonmyhome ##botanicalpickmeup #plantsmakemehappy #bigsmallbusiness #ihavethisthingwithplants #itsallgravy
