Orange walls. Not just a peachy orange. I am talking bright orange. That’s the colour I am painting my hallway. Hoorah.
And these are the prints I am hanging. Aren’t they just bloody awesome!
They’re from Etsy seller Yumalum. I have brought the poster size versions (500x700mm), but you can also get other sizes too. Mine are mounted in good old Ribba frames from Ikea.
Good price. Great pictures and a UK seller, which means they come quickly. Happy days.
Every year the husband and I make each other something for Christmas. I always make the best present mainly because he forgets and his is all rushed, last minute and a little bit lame. I’m not being mean, it’s true. He admits it.
Anyway, this year I am making it really easy for him. He reads this blog. His mate stalks this blog (so Webster, remind him will you!). Phil I want one of these – an iphone case from Photobox.
And I mean I REALLY want one of these. And yes. I know I say that a lot. Now I am going to make it even easier for you. I want you to use one of my Instagram pictures. You know the ones I love. The cool ones. I like the ones below:
Now I know you struggle on the computer with images and what have you, so PLEASE do not struggle alone. Ask Sian for help. She knows how I would like it. I mean it. Don’t try and do it alone!
When I unwrap this on Christmas day I will be ever so happy. And you may, MAY just have beaten me this year ….. xx
For those of you who don’t know about Movember, it’s all about raising funds and awareness of the number one and two male specific cancers – prostate and testicular cancer. The funds raised are directed to programmes run directly by Movember and their men’s health partners, The Prostate Cancer Charity and the Institute of Cancer Research.
I haven’t got a tash, thankfully. Although as I have got older, I have to thank my lovely beautician for keeping that along with the eyebrows in order. But my fuzz free face and I support Movember for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, because it’s close to home. My dad has been diagnosed with Prostate cancer. So for that reason alone, I thank every Mo Bro and every Mo Sister for supporting too.
I have just read over on Sticky Fingers about a group of Mo Sisters who are doing their bit, tash and all, lead by self proclaimed tash obsessive Laura. So I urge you to pop over to their sites, have a read, and support however you can. Awareness and money helps. You can donate to their team page on the Movember site.
And I’d like to leave you with these stats:
- One man dies every hour of prostate cancer in the UK.
- Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK
- In the UK 37,000 men are diagnosed every year, this is the equivalent of 100 per day.
- 1 in 9 men will get prostate cancer in the UK
- 250,000 men are living with prostate cancer – including my dad
- 10,000 men die every year from prostate cancer in the UK
Do you use Pinterest but are annoyed that’s there’s no easy way to be pinning your finds with on your iPad, iPhone or iPod? Well if so, you’re about to love me forever.
You CAN pin directly from your browser on your device. And it’s easy. It took me literally 20 seconds to do. And it works. Here’s what you need to do. Read this through once before you start, and copy the code before you begin.
- Browse to Pinterest on Safari.
- Save as Bookmark (just click the little arrow Icon to the left of the address bar).
- Then go to your bookmarks (click the little book icon next to the icon we just used) and edit bookmarks.
- Click on the Pinterest bookmark, and edit the name to PIN IT (or whatever you like really).
- Delete the URL under the name.
- Copy and paste the following code in to the URL line:
- Ensure you have copied all of it.
- Click save.
Browse to something you love, and when on that page and ready to pin, just go and click that bookmark.
Voila, it launches the pinterest pin screen!!
I really hope that makes sense. Try it and let me know how you get on. I’m off to pin, see you there!
ps.You can find me here on Pinterest!
In case you dont know, I am about to launch a kids online footwear store called Little Stomper. I am incredibly excited about it. I had this little cutie visit Little Stomper HQ last week, and she clearly thinks our stock is good enough to eat! Until the launch, you can keep up to date with where we are at on either Facebook or Twitter. And if you’re wondering where that beautiful blanket came from, it’s from Big Birds Boutique. BBB is a very recently launched but I suspect it’s going to be full of loveliness!
