Pressie problem solved..

This is going to sound selfish but if you're like me and are sick of people buying you gifts that you don't particually like or need, I have a solution! Have you heard of Pinterest? It sounds boring but it's actually quite the little tool for keeping all those goodies you find online but don't purchase at the time for one reason or another and it's very easy to use.
My point to all this is you can create a board that is basically your wish list and your family and friends can see your preferences, then by clicking on the photo it will link you directly to where the product is sourced.. Happy days.

Here's a snap shot of a couple of things I keeping for a rainy day.

You can follow me here or start creating your own!

What's in a name..

I am a Magazine addict..

There I said it. I'm not sure if I should be putting it out there because I'm pretty sure my husband is my regular reader (Josh, you there?) but I spend a considerable amount of moola on magazines. Home mag's, fashion mag's, food mag's, kids mag's, gossip mag's (I think you get the picture) and then do it all again in with the UK and US versions.
But there is a light at the end of the tunnel! Online magazines are popping up at every turn so I thought I'd put a little list together of my current guilt free favourites.

Next time I'll show you pretty pictures of my favourite print magazines.

The new Owl..

I'll go right and say that owls are offically old news and Flamingos are here to stay. Everywhere I turn I see the bright pink glow of a flamingo. Be it on the lounge, in the garden or even on the walls. They are everywhere and I gotta say that I'm happy! So sick of bloody owls..

 Exhibit C - Flamingos for your garden (image curtesy of little paper lane). 

We have two of these Flamingos in our front garden called Gloria and Horatio. I think they look great under the Christmas Bush in summer (colour cordinating!)
