WEEKLY INSPIRATION : CRAFTSY CRAFTS

I am always looking to learn a new craft or two. I love the idea of having things around the house that I have made or making special presents for family and friends for special celebrations.

It is hard to pick which craft to learn, but it is harder to find the time to actually learn that craft. Finding a class, finding a time that suits you and your family, going there, coming back… so much time wasted in travelling alone!

WEEKLY INSPIRATIONS : SPRING STYLE with MODCLOTH

I am really looking forward to Spring. It is coming soon, right?

The weather around here in Ireland feels a bit bipolar : one day we have hailstones and the next day is a beautiful dry sunny day… I live for the sunny days, that’s where I get my life from.

I am really looking forward to peeling off some of my layers, to be able to go outside without a heavy jacket on. Since I live in Ireland I am not holding on to any romantic idea of removing my tights any time soon. It will probably happen in July, for about 2 weeks. That’s it. At least for me. Maybe it is my Spanish blood. I like it hot.

ModCloth has a gorgeous collection of beautiful clothes and accessories. It’s so fresh, light and airy… I can nearly smell the spring… And they have a SALE ON!!

WEEKLY INSPIRATION : VALENTINE’S DAY

We are already in February and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Are you a Valentine kind of person?

Mr B and I never celebrated it until we had the boys and they became aware of the day. We are just not very romantic. Now  we have a “family date”, exchange cards and have breakfast in bed, all together. It’s lovely. The boys call it Love Day, and for us, that is exactly what it is.

Whichever way you celebrate, on your own, with your partner, in family, with friends… t is always nice to have some inspiration for the day.

VALENTINE’S DAY DECORATION

If you like embracing Valentines Day to the fullest and go all out decorating your home, this balloon arch is just super cute and it can be used from breakfast bar to cocktail bar as the day evolves…

WEEKLY INSPIRATIONS : BOYS’ BEDROOMS

As I mentioned recently, I moved every bed in my house before Christmas. I just woke up one morning and I had to do it.

The boys had been sharing a room since they were born but for different reasons (that will soon be revealed to you), the boys had to be separated and they now have their very own bedroom.

I have always tried to decorate their bedroom and playroom with different colors. I never liked the blue with soccer balls kind of decorations for the boy’s room. It is not them. It is not us.

As now I get to decorate 2 bedrooms, I have to take into consideration their ages, their tastes and their needs for their individual rooms, always within budget which means recycle, up-cycle, inherit, beg…. the usual!

For BIG MONKEY’S ROOM (age 8) I will need a nice desk to keep up with his drawing

And some shelving will also be neccesary for books and general stuff that they seem to get…

These walls are just gorgeous. Fun but sensible… right?

The bed is priority. It needs to be comfortable and inviting, not only to sleep but also to grab a book and read for a while.

Their little feet need to be warm, but stylish also… of course!

As for CHAOTIC MONKEY’S ROOM (age 6) I will also need some storage and this one looks not only affordable but fun!

There is so much I would take from here. From the cushions, to the wall, to the bed… so much…

How cool would it be to have this seat in your room? I mean Chaotic Monkey’s room… yes, that’s what I mean…

Food for thought.
I will be working hard at making those spaces as amazing, relaxing and inspiring as I can.
What about you?
Are you inspired yet?

Have an amazing weekend.
