Detox. I need to do this! 
Not like a full on 'only drink lemon & water 'detox, but more eating less carbs, drinking less wine, eating less cheese & eating more fruit, veggies & water...& doing more exercise & getting fresh air! 
The last few weeks have been crazy at work, then crazy organising for our party (then a good hangover to go with that!). Bens brother & his wife surprised us by coming over from Seattle for our party which was awesome & meant a whirlwind week of late nights out & tonnes of good food & wine.....which has left me feeling a little depleted! So from today i have decided to go on an alcohol ban for 8 weeks (except for the night the tour de france starts where i'll allow myself a few red wines!), get bak into the hot yoga & generally try to control the 'naughty stuff' yes that means you carbs & cheese! I think the cold weather & being inside a lot can make you feel a bit 'blah' too! So now that ive put it out there ill hopefully stick to it....

Do you guys ever feel like this? Whats your strategy?? Any good books you've read? Here are a few piccies that inspire me to live & eat 'cleaner'.

Calligraphy stamps

Wow - Saturday night was a big one....i think i crawled into bed at about 5am! We had an amazing night & were so overwhelmed by all our gorgeous freinds & family & how totally spoilt we were!
Ill share some pics from the night when i get the piccies off my camera....right now i need some serious caffiene to get me through Monday! In the meantime how beautiful is calligraphy - and how cool is this - calligraphy stamps! Affordable & beautiful - i bought something similar last year & love stamping the back of mail i send out with it!

Winter Bedroom Makeover

Image Via My Ideal Home

I love the cosy sophisticated look of this bedroom - a perfect look for winter & could be a simple makeover to do on your own room! Simply add crisp white linen (nice at any time of the year!) & a dark grey wool blanket to the end of your bed, black drapes with tassle tie backs to the windows & head to your local map shop & find a giant map of your favourite city to wallpaper the wall behind your bed with! Love the orchid too - always a fan - they last for ages & are beautiful to look at!
