Just call me Picasso

Just call me Picasso

I’ve been wanting something to go on a big blank wall. I couldn’t find anything I liked. Or if I did like it I didn’t have $650-$1,200 to buy something.

I really like the colour pink. Don’t you think? Ha! I looked around my house yesterday and realised there’s a lot of it… I think having 3 boys has made me love it more! I am the only one who enjoys it! So they have to put up with a sprinkle of it here andContinue reading →

Why has instagram become so popular?

In my kitchen

In my kitchen

This is the place where I spend most of my time – my kitchen. Not because I love to cook! Oh no, I don’t like to do that! But because it’s a great space to be in which overlooks the family and dining area. My pantry is in another room behind the oven wall (doorContinue reading →

Indoor plants and their benefits

Indoor plants and their benefits

I used to be mad about indoor plants back in the year 1999. It was the year I met my husband and moved in with him. Then it sort of became uncool and daggy to have indoor plants. Fast forward a decade or so and I’m back to loving indoor plants again (I hope thisContinue reading →

My bathroom vanity & the regret

My bathroom vanity & the regret

Truly, I love my bathrooms. I had the vanities custom made (to match my kitchen and laundry), and they are perfect. The ensuite bathroom is identical but smaller. The mirrors go all the way to the ceiling. The tops are Osprey Caesar Stone and I love the trough-style sinks. It’s pretty basic, but I didn’tContinue reading →
