I realised that I haven't shared any of our guest rooms on my blog and what good a time as any to share them than while we are in lock down and I have some time to photograph them!
We actually have 7 bedrooms in the Villa! We chose to use 2 for my dressing room and office, while the rest are used when we have guests to stay! Whilst it sounds great having so many guestrooms, its a nightmare to keep on top of the cleaning.
Today i'm sharing the littlest but to me, the cutest room in the Villa. Up until lockdown i'd say this room has been the most neglected of all of our rooms. However, this room is a favourite because of its quirky little features ... its 2 little balcony's with their grey french doors and super cute fireplace. The villa is an Spanish cortijo, which basically means Andalusian farmhouse... so naturally I chose a very traditional style of decor for the majority of the Villa. The Villa was the closest thing we could find to our beloved Provence in Spain, and really feels like a French house thanks to the french architect who built it.
As you can probably tell, i'm a fan of a dress cushion... something that my husband has always laughed at me for. I just find they have a way of making a room feel more dressed and cosy and adding a little design flair to any room.
I mentioned in my previous post that I'd been spending most of my time during lock down cleaning, tiding and re organising our villa as it seems most of you guys are too. Seeing people posting on social media about how they are investing in their homes has been really inspiring to me.
In the post-pandemic world, we may not be as financially well off as we are now. However, this shouldn’t mean that you cannot enjoy your big day. You have been looking forward to getting married (finally), and nothing should prevent you from beginning the next chapter of your life with your soulmate. Getting married on a budget doesn’t mean foregoing the flowers, having a smaller cake, or going for a hand-me-down wedding dress. You simply need to know where to look to find excellent deals and set yourself a workable budget. Take a look at how you can get hitched without breaking the bank.
Like most of us during the Corona virus pandemic, I'm left during lock down to dream of the travel that we lost and the travel that we will do when all of this is over. Its always my favourite places that I wanderlust for... Provence, Italy and Marrakesh are all front of mind.
If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that like most of you, iv spent my days during these crazy times of lock down pulling our home apart and putting it back together again.
Everybody wants to be confident, but not a lot of people really know where confidence comes from. True confidence is what you want to go for, and that is a much rarer breed to find than its common twin - bravado. The thing about bravado is that it very often comes hand in hand with low self-esteem but high self-regard, and that is a recipe for failure. What you want to develop is a genuine inner confidence which you can feel within you as a store of energy, and from which you can act with assurance and directness. There are a few certain things you can do to improve that internal store of confident energy.
When the time finally comes, and you are ready to start planning a wedding, you may often be taken aback by how much certain sources will estimate the cost to be. The trouble is, when it comes to planning a wedding, whenever a business hears that you want their service for your big day, they instantly see pound signs.
During the winter, snow sports are great to try when you're travelling. In fact, they're often the entire basis of a winter holiday. Skiing and snowboarding are just two options, with both alpine (downhill) skiing and cross-country skiing available. You can also try other sports from snowshoeing and tobogganing to ice skating and even dogs sledding.
Mumbai, or Bombay as it once was, is India’s answer to Hollywood – a city of dreams and a city of massive contrasts. A city of rich and poor, inspiration and desperation, traditional and modern, old and new. Not surprisingly for such a vibrant city there are so many things to do in Mumbai!
As the bride, on your wedding day, all eyes will be on you. No matter how confident you are, this can be daunting for anyone and even more so if you have insecurities about your appearance. If you want to feel at your most confident on the day and and look stunning in your wedding photos, here are some prep ideas you can do in the leadup to your wedding.
