Oh take me back to warm sunny days. Now it's not that I don't like winter but I really struggle without actual sunshine and with this blanket of grey Bristol has been living under the last few weeks, I've been daydreaming about the afternoon we spent in Wer-Haus Barcelona, the perfect concept store and coffee pit-stop. I love discovering hidden gems like these when exploring new cities and always look out for stylish design and interiors, plus they do the best hot chocolate too!

After spending the morning exploring the stunning rooftops of Gaudi's La Pedrera *Swoon* we wandered a few blocks to find the hidden delights of concept store, Wer-Haus, the perfect combo of gallery/fashion store/coffee lab/event space/bookshop. I mean come on! How cool is that, all my favourite things in one place, housed in a former parking garage. We entered from the bustling street via the gallery and bookstore space which houses some interesting pieces to muse over before it opens out into an industrial designed coffee/dining space with the a fashion store at the back. coffee shop decor ideas, coffee shop interior, cafe concept, design coffee shop, wer-haus barcelona, design cafe, industrial interior, coffee shop barcelona, barcelona coffee shop

The kiddo happily sat drawing his version of Gaudi's building while we sat back and enjoyed a coffee or two and tested out the menu with a few dishes and were pleased to find a few gluten free options available.

I really loved the interior space with huge leafy plants, concrete floors and open loft style space, punctuated with cool photos on the wall and industrial furniture. The gallery space hosts a variety of work and the bookshop has all the best magazines, perfect to while away the hours. In fact it made me feel very envious that we haven't got our own version of Were-Haus to hang out in back home.

After an hour or so we left the comfort of Wer-Haus and headed off to the next part of our adventure, but this space has definitely given me some food for thought when it comes to styling interiors and I can feel a huge plant purchase coming on for our home *Shhh just don't tell the OH*.

If you get the chance to pop by while in Barcelona I would definitely recommend this space for a stylish coffee stop. You can check out the rest of our Spanish road trip here.

NEW YEAR, NEW ME? MOODBOARD & MUSES 04

new year new you?, moodboards & muses, inspiration, style, dazed, creative, art direction

Oh hey! So I seem to have silently slipped through the whole transition of the dud that was 2016 into what I'm hoping will be a much better and more positive year. I took a step back over Christmas from pretty much all social media and didn't pressure myself to jump back on the horse as soon as the clock struck midnight, in fear of a Cinderella type scandal. Nope I want to start the the year with both feet firmly planted in those glass slippers, grounded and full of intent. I could look back over the last year, pop together a review but to be honest it was a pretty crappy one peppered with some awesome highlights, not to mention the global sigh of 2016, and I'm quite relieved it's been given the boot to be honest.

I don't want to start off with a downer post, this isn't, but there has to be room to be authentic and hold my hands up and say yep, that wasn't great rather than paint a sparkly rainbow picture. It would also feel wrong to not acknowledge the loss of last year, with the passing of my lovely Grandad and a very dear friend, both of which hit me pretty hard. In fact I would say that loss has been a large part of 2016, to the point of feeling a bit lost in myself.

Within that is the beautiful opportunity to grow, to learn, and to just start somewhere. New Year, new me? Nah, I'm looking at this year with a whole different perspective, in fact I think I'm starting to change some of those long standing bad habits and shushing the inner self criticism, because pretty sure that's not fun or helpful.

What I am looking forward to this year is focusing on creating the best version of myself. The version that makes me feel good inside and hopefully shines out my face like sunbeams, to quote the wonderful Mr Dahl. So I popped together a new Moodboard & Muses post because, well...I rather enjoy them ;)


Things I'm loving:
// Friends. OK this might sound like an odd one but after Bissy passed away it really made me evaluate how I connect with my loved ones. Yep I like their FB posts, double tap the Instagram and will laugh at the snapchat banter, but I think I've overlooked the nature and nurture of my friendships in real life. You know picking up the phone and having a chat.. circa '95. This became more apparent when I dropped friends a line just for a chat rather than a thumbs up, or to make arrangements, you know just like 'hey how are you and what's going on in your life sort of chat, and when my missed calls were returned with texts asking if I was OK? I realised something wasn't right. So yep those friends who live far but you hold so close..drop them a line and show them the love.

// Fashion. I do love clothes and I think for the last six months it has been so super easy to get up and sling on the same pair of faded jeans and kicks to do the school run in. In fact I think I've lost the playfulness in my sense of style that I once loved and I'm not down with that. Hell no. So I'm going to start introducing a few more style posts in for fun and just to be creative. Let me know what you think, would you be interested to see some style posts? 

// TEETH! Ok this one I am SO excited about! After pretty much complaining about my teeth for about ten years... I can be so annoying ... I have decided to get a brace. Yep I'm bringing braces back and embracing the inner nerd, although to be honest I reckon this term is so outdated, if showing yourself some self love and investing in yourself is 'nerdy' then bring it on. Look out for new chompers coming soon! 

Things I'm Not:
// Instagram. Hmm seems a bit harsh, especially as it's one of my favourite platforms, but I've been really struggling with my creative flow on there and seem to be missing some of my fave people posts due to the, what feels like, constant algorithm changes. Oh Instagram bring back the good old days. 

Other Things:
// So just to contradict myself , I thought I'd share some Instagram love and who's been inspiring me recently. This month I've been drawn to those travel inspired or art directed style accounts and I might even be bring back Style My Coffee...baby steps...

AT HOME FOR CHRISTMAS


Are you ready for Christmas? I must admit I've been going through the festive motions and it hadn't quite hit me until this morning, when the last of the food shop was done and I finally felt ready to relax into it all. We are at home for Christmas and I can't wait to see my baby's face light up with excitement when he wakes bleary eyed to see if there are any presents under the tree. We'll spend the early hours exchanging presents, Bucks Fizz in hand, Paul prepping some breakfast goodies for us  amongst the sea of paper.

FEAST ON VEGETARIAN DISHES // RIVERFORD FOOD BOX REVIEW

vegetarian meals, vegetarian dishes, veg recipes, healthy vegetarian recipes, vegetarian recipes easy, simple vegetarian recipes, vegetarian dinner, food box
When it comes to eating healthy in our house we tend to do quite well if you minus the chocolate and crisps, as I'm always keen to avoid processed food where possible and although it takes longer, I enjoy creating home cooked dishes. Over the years I've found myself being less interested in the meat side of things, and instead look for other ways to create a tasty meal with vegetarian meals.
