WEEKLY INSPIRATION : COSY PIJAMAS

My kids love having pijama’s days. To be honest, I don’t know where they got that from as both Mr B and I are totally presentable in the morning. I mean, fully showered, fully dressed and even some makeup on… it is important to be presentable for breakfast, to start the day prepared… yeah, right… there is nothing better than breakfast in pijamas and messy hair (this last detail doesn’t seem to be optional… my hair is just crazy in the mornings).

The weather has just turned and the cold seems to be here to stay. We are officially entering into pijama’s season. That time of the year where the kind of pijamas you are wearing will determine the day you will have. Ok, I might have taken it too far but you know what I mean…

For a lazy day watching TV by the fire, animal onesies are a must.

You can get them for the entire family!

Now, these pijamas might prove uncomfortable in bed, with their tails and ears, so a sexier onesie (because there is totally such a thing, right?).

But in fairness, bed is not just for lazing around., I also like to read in it – snuggled under the blanket, kindle in hand and loads and loads of coffee.

Just because you are in pijamas it doesn’t mean that you can not be stylish

Whatever style you’d prefer, enjoy your lazy day, put your feet up, cuddle up and embrace the chaos.

Have a great weekend.

WEEKLY INSPIRATION : AMAZING BEDS

WEEKLY INSPIRATION : AMAZING BEDS

I don’t know if it’s just me but as winter closes in, cold gets sharper and the days are getting shorter, I find it harder and harder to get out of bed in the morning. Don’t tell me I am on my own here… Who likes to get out of bed in a cold morning?

Although staying in bed is not an option during weekdays, we always try to linger in  bed that little bit longer at weekends. We have been know for having family breakfasts in bed and snuggling up in wet cold afternoons while watching The Princes Bride.

The thing is that these family events require big and amazing beds. And I am not only talking about big beds, they also need to be inviting, comfortable and cosy.

This bed is just big enough for all of us and I love all the pillows and the layers… so inviting!

I love cast iron beds, painted or otherwise. There is something very romantic and traditional about them. (source)

Big beds in small spaces have to be inviting and it looks like we could camp in this one for a good while!

And of course, a four poster bed is the ultimate luxury when it comes to beds. I would love to just close those curtains and sleep off until Spring!

LAZY DAYS ARE GOOD

Lazy days - fishing with dad
Hey there lovely people. I hope you are having an amazing summer. Apologies for not been in touch lately but Mr B and I were organizing our 20 year anniversary party, welcoming people that had traveled all the way to Spain to celebrate with us, hanging out with our friends and family. We have had the best time merging our Spanish and Irish worlds. We knew everyone would get on but it worked out even better than we could have imagined. Irish people are planning their next holidays in the north of Spain, Spanish people are planning to visit Ireland, there was talk of house swaps… everybody loved each other.

I will be sharing some photos of the event shortly, once I manage to sift through the hundreds of photos that were taken that night.

Some of our friends stayed for few days after the party so we have been trying to spend as much time as possible with them. We both love our friends but we were also looking forward to spending time our own. Just the 4 of us. A proper lazy day with loads of cuddles, a bit of reading, playing cards… We finally had one.

We all got up late and had a lovely family breakfast. The lazy day turned out perfect when we remembered that there was a Food-Truck Festival in the local plaza for the entire weekend! There is no need to cook at all! Sweet!

There was a lovely atmosphere. Some live music, sun shining, lovely food, loads of lovely people around… it was perfect!

We spent the day lazing, eating, relaxing, cuddling, fishing and swimming, all within a 200 square mtrs. We even went to bed relatively early and we slept really well.

We love our busy days, but we also need some lazy days to relax and recharge our energy levels.
Lazy days are good. We love them too. We need them.
