"I rebel, therefore I exist"

Hardworking. Conscientious. Motivated. Ordinarily I can tick all those boxes, but you know what, nope, not today.

I, like you I bet, have worked my noggin off all week, exhausted myself mentally, denied myself fun, frolics and fitness (sitting at my desk is soooo not good for my butt!) all in aid of achieving my work goals.

Well, sayonara baby, laters, I'm outta here. I've done loads this week and I'm off to take my mum out for lunch. It's been waaaay too long since we had a girly catch up and I could do with some fun mum time.

Ok, I admit I'll do some work tonight (see, I am conscientious really) but for now life takes over and a yummy lunch and maybe a cheeky glass of something pink and bubbly await me.

Why don't you give yourself a break and be a rebel. Give yourself the afternoon off and go do something amaaaazing, yay!

Have a fab weekend my lovelies x

A happy Tuesday shout out for true craftsmanship

Cor blimey it's been a little while hasn't it, life seems to just take over and stuff happens - like moving house (yay!) and half term holidays full of kiddies parties and halloween excitement…enough excuses because today I just HAVE to share with you the best and my most favourite solid wood furniture, which I have been meaning to shout about for ages. Oh what joy there is to be had when you buy a timeless and beautiful piece of furniture that has been impeccably crafted and is full of life and character, just fabulous. I'm most certainly going to be buying some for me very soon and also sourcing for a new and exciting project next year. So let me tell you all about it…

Ethnicraft has been producing solid oak and teak furniture for 15 hears now and has built up a reputation for creating authentic, warm and natural furniture collections that will only become more beautiful as time passes. Supplying the likes of John Lewis, Pure Home Lifestyle and Mac & Mac to name a few, Ethnicraft's stunningly simple collections can be found in the most diverse interiors across the world. See for yourself why there is so much to love about their gorgeous oak and teak solid wood furniture…

Wave oak sideboard
Wide oak TV unit
Teak pop occasional table
Teak chest of drawers
Madra teak bed
Do you see why I'm so in love with this furniture? So simple. So timeless. So stunning. For a pared back, contemporary Scandinavian styled home, this is the stuff that dreams are made of. Not cheap, not over expensive but a truly worthwhile investment that will age beautifully, at least that's one of us then *wink*

Have a fab day and let me know if you do go and buy any Ethnicraft furniture, I'd love to hear about it. What's more if you do buy some, you'll be safe in the knowledge that you have bought something made with the world's most environmentally friendly raw material and are doing your bit for the ecology of this beautiful planet we find ourselves living on. Bonus!
