Last weekend I had some of my best friends come to visit, delighted to have visitors I set about sorting the spare room and ‘the other room’. The spare room was not difficult, my parents stay with us a lot, quick sweep, change of linen, done. To properly accommodate my friend her husband and two children would mean me tackling The Other Room.
The other room has been many things, an office studio before we built the studio shed. A bedroom while decorating the spare room and latterly my walk in wardrobe, a study for writing and studio for taking most of my photographs. It’s also a gatherer of dust, books, magazines, excess tut.
I cleaned and took out all of the tut. I hung some pictures and made a gallery wall of sorts. It’s a bit thrown together, I’ve just chucked up a couple of charity shop old paintings and some wedding pictures, I don’t know if it’s all those beautiful people smiling back at me but I like it, it’s kinda chinzy and cozy, I’ve dotted the room with candles and flowers and added a painting I’ve been working on, Grey Storm.
Hmmm, let’s say the painting is a work in progress…..and I need new cushions, but give it time. In other news, our dire weather has had me reaching for the fake tan. Skinny Tan sent me a box of lovely products. As well as the tan mousse, they sent me exfoliator mitt, primer, applicator mitt and a detailed list of how to do it. I now have a healthy glow, no streaks and importantly non-orange palms!
I’ve also this week felt that seasonal change in skin, not sure if its more walking the dog or exposure to the elements (I can’t really say the sun can I?). So I’ve been reaching for a moisturizer to combat, tired, uneven lackluster skin. This Bio-Radiance Face Cream from Christopher Courtney London really works.
As soon as you apply this authentic, ethical, luxurious cream you can feel it tingling and working. It smells incredible and of course, it’s all natural and made in the UK. If you don’t know this company follow this link.
All photographs by me, have a fab week, I’m going to work on the other room.
