In Pictures: July Roundup (Instagram)

Let’s not mention that it is the end of July, shall we? Good. I have a feeling August is going to be a little bit crazy (more on this soon!) so it’s nice to look at these chilled Instagram snaps from the past 31 days.

At Home: MADE x Unboxed unboxed have launched an exciting online community called Unboxed, which allows users to see MADE furniture and accessories in real life homes. For free design inpiration, you are able to take virtual tours of homes and workplaces across Europe, find products that you are tempted to buy and see how people style them too.

I was asked to be a brand advocate as part of their exciting launch and you can view my profile here. Our humble home looks a little less glamorous than the other participants, but that is what’s great about this platform, as you can actually see the products in real homes…hello brown carpet! Plus, it was lovely to have a few photos of this home of ours before we move. unboxed unboxed unboxed unboxed unboxed bedroom6 unboxed unboxed unboxed

If you’re looking for real design inspiration, browse and explore Unboxed to discover individual style and be inspired by MADE in the real world.

Via Shedquarters

I adore this simple and chic everyday tote by Shedquarters. Designed and made by hand, it is made from 100% cotton and cotton/linen mix and currently in the sale for £20 (free delivery in UK). Take a look at the rest of the shop for great contemporary homewares and gifts. I’m smitten.

Happy Friday!

Lately: Sunshine and Hebden Bridge

Life lately has been pretty hectic. Besides buying a house and all the fun that comes with that, there’s been lots of exciting things occurring; it all happens at once doesn’t it? More on that soon though, my friends.

In the meantime, I’ve been enjoying sunshine and ice creams, plotting and planning away our little lives, mini walks (mainly to the pub and back) and my lovely new London Retro prescription sunglasses c/o Glasses Direct.

This is my first pair of prescription sunglasses, which is ridonculous considering I wear glasses nearly every day. I’ve used Glasses Direct many times now and recommend them to anyone looking for beautifully designed frames, at decent prices. You can even try the frames before you buy them with their 7 day home trial.

Besides the house and work stuff, other things that have made me happy lately; surprise chocolates, helping my sister at her baby sale, sitting in the sunshine talking about our house, Oh Comely magazine landing on my doormat and the action film, Snowpiercer.

What have you been up to lately?

Disclosure: Sunglasses c/o Glasses Direct.
