Ci credete a chi dice che le case riflettono l’anima delle persone? Io si, tanto. Casa è il mio rifugio quando il mondo mi sembra inospitale, casa è avere le mie persone preferite intorno a un tavolo, casa è le risate nel lettone il sabato mattina.
Fra un paio di mesi dovrò lasciare questa casa, per un’altra. La prossima sarà per tanti versi un sogno che si avvera: avrò il camino, che qui mi manca tanto, un giardino e appena sveglia, la prima cosa che vedrò sarà un soffitto di travi di legno. Eppure so già che questa piccola casa un po’ mi mancherà. Ha visto entrare fra le sue mura una ragazza un po’ spaesata e vede uscire una donna, una compagna, una mamma.
Allora condivido questa, che forse è la mia veduta preferita di tutta la casa, perché so già che fra qualche mese la riguarderò con un po’ di nostalgia, come si fa con quel vestito messo in un’occasione importante, testimone di momenti felici, ma che ora è giusto riporre in una scatola, perché ha fatto il suo tempo.
My face whenever people put food in front of me! 😆 Had a fabulous evening at the newly opened @villamoredxb
in the opulent @emeraldpalacekempinski
last night. A truly stunning spot with all the holiday vibes and fantastic Mediterranean food. The antipasti room is a must and the fresh seafood is out of this world! Catch it all on my stories and expect the full review on the blog next week! 😘 #dubaieats #palmjumeirah #dubaifood
He still seems too small to me. He can still wear some 12-18 clothes, despite being 2 and a half and when he curls up in bed next to me, I remember those early days of co sleeping and breastfeeding 🤱
But I took this picture last night and I got a glimpse of him as a toddler. As a young child who isn't a baby anymore, who's not big enough to be cradled in my arms 💔
We're still not sure that we'll have any more children (it's been proving difficult anyway!) so it's bittersweet watching them both grow. I'm so excited to see where life takes them but these early years are something I will treasure forever ✨ #parentingblogger #ilovemyboys #stopgrowingup
•My heart is split in two•
My heart is split in two beautiful pieces that I wouldn’t trade for anything else in the world.
The good and the bad cop, switching back and forth from time to time, they bring out the best in me even when I can’t fight for it myself. Annoyingly strong, weird, strangely right at times when I don’t see it, unapologetically real. Always and forever they are the ones holding me together and for that I say a fucking thank you 🖤
Когда сердце расколото на двое. Когда каждое из этих двух можно тронуть, обнять, поцеловать. Когда каждое из этих двух делает тебя целым в моменты пустоты. Когда любовь осязаема, и ты знаешь каждую улыбку, ухмылку, гримасу. Когда знаешь, что за дурацкий поступок тебе прилетит больше, чем от родителей, потому что «дебила ты кусок!»
Когда с такими двумя половинками хоть на край земли🖤
DONE ✔️ Soooo ready for it to be Saturday so I can meet a whole new bunch of beautiful creatives. I’m all prepared, and can’t wait to meet you XX
Ps. That photo with that LARGE glass of G&T was from last night. Firmly on coffee this morning ☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️
🕯⭐Lucia idag. Små ljusa barnröster som sjöng mjukt. Charmigt och gulligt.
🕯⭐ Lucia today. Small bright children's voices that sang softly. Charming and cute.
Kar yağdığı için çok mutlu olan Sumru kişisi günün tadını çıkarırken, hafta sonuna ait fotoğrafları paylaştı. Daha çok mutlu oldu! Workshop için @fujifilmtr
'ye çok teşekkürler!
Fotoğraflar için @mouettealunette
'e teşekkür ederim!
Доброе!🍪🎄😃🍫 продолжите фразу «мое идеальное зимнее утро....».
На фото пыталась создать атмосферу праздника⭐️😉. У папули завтра др! Есть у меня ещё тут декабрьские?)
What's the fascination with drawing people? 🎨 We have had the opportunity to meet so many interesting characters, it's great to convey this through illustration! 💞 Have you ever received an illustration from us?
Remedy for a grey morning mood. Take one abundance of blowsy blooms and vibrant greenery, add a dash of decorative metalwork, a nip of old pots, a sniff of ancient cobbles and a silvered wreath, apply eyes and poof! - mood restored. 🌖
I’ve been hanging on to this cheery little scene from the castle district of Budapest and glancing at it every so often for a dose of happy for a while now. I don’t usually go for brights, but it’s nice to have in my pocket to glance at on grey London mornings as it reminds me of wonderful days strolling the streets with @katymacscott
on our recent #adventuresforharriet
adventure across Hungary. So I thought I’d stop worrying about it not being very ‘me’ and just share it anyway. As various people have said to me recently, who looks at your feed anyway? I mean, who knows? Who cares? I think I do, I like it here! So hello to you, fellow flower fanciers, whoever and wherever you are. 🌺💚

Декабрь - страшный месяц, особенно если открыть инстаграм))
Везде атмосфера, ёлки в доме, свечи, ёлочные игрушки, готовые подарки. Для меня адвент календарь что-то запредельное, многие его ещё и делают сами! Как?) Вывод: мастер-класса в декабре не будет, нужно найти гирлянду и мишуру ❄️
У вас как с подготовкой обстоят дела? Письмо деду морозу написали?)
Day is photo session. It's always a bit complicated for the whole family to pose together, but with a little help we can.
In these days we'll be taking new photos of our families and dolls. But, some time ago we've the doubt of what will be better; take the whole family together or separately each doll?
There's some help??
Something mysterious about it when I take a photo through another photographer
Hmm to go traditional or not? 🤔🎄
This year I’ve gone completely non-traditional with my decorations, themed in rose gold, silver, white and wood 💕 I’m usually all about the traditional Christmas colour schemes and kid-decorated craziness but I’m secretly just loving the matchiness and subtlety of our decorations this year 😍😍
Now to coordinated gift wrapping... 😜
Do you have a colour scheme to your Christmas decorating? Is it traditional or modern??
I said y’all in a work email this week and my one of coworkers responded by calling me cowboy🤠Irish people just don’t get it!Only a few more days until I’m back in the south having all the Chick-til-A, Waffle House, Tennessee Pride sausage, buttermilk biscuits....can you tel I love southern food? 😉 Today on the blog I’m talking all the things I loved (hint: there’s definitely food included!) in November!

Ten years ago today we moved into this house. The first house we bought after years of renting and the longest time we've ever lived anywhere. Sophie was 7 years old, Ella had just turned two, Mimi was only six months old and Lola was still just stardust. It's not our forever home by any means but it's a house full of a decade of memories. It's where I found out we'd be adding Lola to our family, it's where I've learned about the deaths of loved ones. It's where Neil proposed on Christmas Day five years ago. Its where we've laughed and cried and argued and loved. This sofa that we're sat on in this photo could tell thousands of stories. Every year I take photos of everyone in silly festive hats and glasses and this year the husband made me get in the shot and I'm so glad he did. Me and my four girls. It's cheesy and ridiculous but it's us. And I love it.

Conforto 🐻 sono sempre stata una bambina molto forte, più matura di quello che sarebbe dovuta essere una bambina di 7 anni..fiera, orgogliosa, intelligente e spiritosa aggiungerei stranamente spigliata però la notte mi succedeva qualcosa di strano, mi prendeva quel mal di stomaco che ricordo ancora adesso, così vero, forte e compariva ogni volta che si spegnevano tutte le luci e io rimanevo a fissare il buio cercando di trovare un riferimento ma niente, la paura era troppo grande. Allora ho iniziato a tenere la famosa Lucina a forma di panda, che conservo ancora adesso ma poi arrivò lei, il mio Peluche miss Pecorella per gli amici Lella (non ridete perché mi incazzo male se prendete in giro miss pecorella) regalatomi da nonna Mary e che subito inizió ad essere il mio conforto più grande quando la notte si spegnevano le luci e io avevo paura di sognare 🙊 e che addirittura mi fece compagnia nei miei sogni fino a non troppi anni fa prima di essere tragicamente smarrita in un hotel di Barcellona, ma questa è un'altra storia 😂🙌 per questo quando penso alla confort zone per eccellenza, penso a peluche giganti da abbracciare ❤ e voi, cosa è per voi di conforto? Raccontateci le vostre storie 🐻
P.s. quando vorresti essere figa come @federicola
ma poi ti accorgi di essere una polpetta che abbraccia orsi di peluche. L' @instagram

THIS GIRL GOT HERSELF A PROMOTION! 🙋🏼♀️🎉🙌🏻 So I’m throwing it back to this more appropriate photo of me with a celebratory drink in hand. Super happy, super proud of myself and (a little) super smug about it if I’m being totally honest! I rarely praise myself for my achievements, so for once, I’m going to take it! I’ll stop for now though. Promise!
Grad spam: Momma appreciation post ‼️
This momma is the only one I would ever ask for and supports me wholeheartedly. She also takes good direction when posing for photos 📸 😂😂 Love you, @jackieclarke52
Ever since I started doing these little creative projects of mine, they have become my escape from reality. I’m always either making something or dreaming up the next idea. (Or five, all at the same time!) And I find both super relaxing!
So this week I took a couple days off work, stayed at home, baked gingerbread cookies and made this winter wonderland stop motion.
P.S. As much fun though I had, I don’t think I have patience enough to work with paper. Mad respect for artists like @masked_moods
who seriously rock!🤩

Passing through a field of frozen sunflowers. In winter the nature goes through transformation, changing its form. Passing through a field of frozen sunflowers, I felt that I cannot longer postpone a most personal post I have ever shared on Instagram. Sharing something personal usually terrifies me. As my online design magazine was not a fitting platform to share a story about grief and the subject of grief feels in general like a taboo these days. I decided to share shortly as I can today in order to inspire people who went through a loss or grief to discover the other side of the coin of it - a personal transformation that is available to all of us. .
This year was the most painful of them all, as on May 1st I lost my father to cancer when he was only 60 years old and nothing is the same in my life.
That was the experience when I was so close to stop believing in good. However mixed with the hardest pain inside me I discovered a new feeling: the cherishment of life. Since then, each day is filled with so much gratitude to experience life in full mindfulness, to live with only thoughts that keep me healthy, to eat and live in a mindful, healthy way. And let me tell you I had days when the pain catched up on me and tried to break me again and again.
This was my year. In this year I was saved mostly by work. I took upon so many photography and styling assignments I could - this kept me focused on the beautiful. I photgraphed homes for real estate and discovered touching stories of the home owners - emerging into other‘s life and feelings distracted me from my own pain.
eventhough our faith in life, in ourselves can be challenged, we always have the choice: to give in to fear, judgment, depression or to strengthen the faith even more - first of all in ourselves- that we are worth being happy and healthy. It’s a choice we make. Leaning into faith in the darkest time can transform trauma into healing, fear into love. Feel free to comment to connect.
