Getting into xmas spirit @ home...

Last night I thought I'd take a couple of quick snapshots to let you in our Christmas home. Personally I love fairy lights, which I intend to get more off and put them all around the house to give that kind off magical and cosy feel @ home. I have read somewhere that if you spray them in gold or silver it gives a nicer lighting, I think that's what I'll be doing this wknd...I hope wherever you are you all have a lovely and magical weekend :-)

Loving these apartments for a holiday break...





Since I'm on the theme of lovely, cool homes I thought I'd introduce you to this FABULOUS site. Matt and I met the creators of this amazing site at a mutual friends wedding, Mel & Piers a couple of months ago. I highly recommend you to check this site & if like me you are always with the passport and suitcase " ready to go" on a holiday break, you will be very tempted on what Loving apartments has to offer! - gorgeous and individual apartments to suit all taste and prices in fabulous locations... so if you fancy a holiday break in Europe this Christmas why not have a peek here. Much better than a Hotel and you also get to experience a little bit how the locals live ! I'm tempted by all the

Private view, friends & wine...

If in London this weekend why not pop down to visit Candid Arts Gallery ?. My friends and fellow students from University days have a fabulous exhibition of their work subject matters. Jane Ross, Dan Green and Amelia Sheperd have put on a great show of their work and it is definitely worth the visit! ....

Book recommendations..

The Boss of you by Lauren Bacon & Emira Mears is the book I'm reading at the moment and finding it very difficult to put down!!
I highly recommend this read to anyone thinking of running their own business. A DIY start up, marketing, financial, is all there & brilliantly written... - I can't recommend it enough!!

A DIY Visual Guidebook for Making Business Ideas Real. Written by Lisa Sonora Beam. Artist, teacher and business woman. You can check her website & blog . This book is for artists, crafters, and creative individuals from all walks of life who desire to make a living from their creative work. ..This book is on my "wish list"...

Simple Sewing with a French Twist

by Celine Dupuy

I love this book although I haven't had anytime yet to try out some of the lovely projects...Beautiful photographs with comprehensive illustrations to create delightful gifts, creating fashion accessories and customizing home furniture...a great passion of mine-some but argue and call it " will look great when is finished..." :-)

Online shop NOW OPEN

I'm pleased to announce my online shop is now open with no closing times, open 24/7. There are also promotional goodies on offer. Why not have a peek here & my full website.

My Sunday Movie...

Hoping you all had a fabulous weekend I'm back to my regular posting of Sunday Movie. Contrary to my personal choice we decided to watch Oxford Murders. Matt had read the book and raved on about it, so I got convinced. Written by fellow Argentine, Guillermo Martinez. Set in Oxford University, a professor and a grad student work together to try and stop a potential series of murders seemingly linked by mathematical symbols. Unfortunately the movie was not as good as the book having gone straight to DVD missing the cinema showings. I personally thought the performance by Elijah Wood was pretty poor and not convincing, although John Hurt as always a great actor. I agree with the reviews , although not a film critic myself but I can't personally recommend you this one :-(
