Today we celebrate having an extra day in the year, also known as leap year, and because of this I have a little something for you all…. I’ve designed some new iPhone wallpapers which are free to download. I’ve noticed on my Pinterest page that these particular designs have been very popular, so I’ve updated the colours and you can add them to your collection. I hope you like them.
I have a lovely, soft post to ease you into this chilly Monday. There’s nothing more I like to buy and window shop is pillows and cushions. My motto is ‘you can never have too many’ and they don’t even have to match, that’s half the fun of it! There’s so many wonderful designs, prints and shapes available to buy, you can snuggle up to a different one every day of the year…. now there’s an idea!
Ok, I might be getting carried away there so here’s a few of my favourites, made by some lovely UK designers, to keep me going for the moment…
1. Bunny Peter Rabbit Cushion Pillow from Knitted Mutts 2. Geometric Cushion from Evermade 3. Kitsch Ocean Throw Pillow from Emma Jayne 4. Elsie Head Cushion from Supercutetilly 5. Zebra Soft Toy from Julia Staite 6. Monochrome Crystal Cushion from Sparrow + Wolf 7. Hallucination Throw Pillow from Muxxi 8. Tunnack’s Teacake Round Cushion from Gillian Kyle 9. Fox Cushion from Also Home 10. Blue Funky Teepee Cushion from Hunkydory Home
As it’s Valentine’s Day on Sunday I thought I’d share 12 Months of Neon Love project by Richard William Wheater and Victoria Lucas of Neon Workshops. These bold statements and declarations of love were featured over a 12 month period back in 2012, starting on Valentine’s Day. What a lovely way to spread the love.
Happy weekend x
2016 started off with a big push in getting back to taking more of my I Saw This and Thought photos. I’ll admit it started slowly, my photographic eye took a little time to warm up, but as January rolled by I was back into the swing of things. And today, as I write this post, I already have a stack of images in the bag for February. But back to January… the mild then cold, then back to mild month provided a great mix of photos for what’s supposed be a cold winter month. Who would have thought we’d get such lovely dramatic sunsets or even daffodils blooming? But I’m not complaining, it helped me get back my mojo 🙂
Instead of the usual photo/illustration/meme for my Fun Friday post, I’ve gone in a different direction today. I want to share with you a wonderful video shot by someone I know. (In fact I used to babysit him when he was tiny, but shhhh….don’t tell him I told you!)
AlexsLens recently visited New York, and during his trip he managed to captured the wonderful sights and sounds of this mesmerising city so beautifully. So take 2 minutes out of your Friday and escape to New York.
Happy weekend x

Something a little bit different for today’s post. The lovely guy’s at Daniel Footwear have put together a great guide for spending 24 hours in Leeds, which includes ideas where to eat, drink and of course shop. Over the past few years there has been lots of wonderful and unique places opening in Leeds, some of which are on this list.I’ve visited a few and can wholly recommend them, and others I’ve still yet to visit; they’re on my to do list.
So, if you’re looking at spending 24 hours in Leeds or just want a recommendation for a night out with friends, then this guide if for you…
