4 February 2016


The short month of love is here *ahhh* and although it was only been a few week since I posted my first Moodboard and Muses, I'm quite keen to pop another one up and keep up the momentum in mustering up some much needed motivation, plus I'm really enjoying making these little collages.

Things I'm loving:
// Succulents. Yep bringing in some green to the home is certainly on my to do list in an attempt to shoo away the grey and fake spring. Also excited to hear about the plans for an Urban Jungle Bloggers Book!

// Water. OK that's sounds a bit random, but after drowning myself in coffee to pull me through Jan, I'm realising that my skin isn't looking so great and a good dose of hydration is needed. That plus a decent moisturiser/foundation would sooth the skin and I'm loving this organic range.

// Quotes. I'm really into inspirational quotes at the moment and pretty much sticking them at eye level around my home to give me some get up and go. I've ordered this print as a Valentines gift and planning to put it above the bed. What do you think? 

// Holograms. No I'm not talking back to the future, more holographic fabrics and fashion. I know I'm a little late to the party with this being more of a 2013/14 thing, but oh how the shimmery style has caught my eye! I'm definitely looking for some fun pumps to make my feet happy and this fun tee has just dropped in my shopping cart too ;)

Things I'm Not:
// Dungarees. OK this is a lie, I LOVE dungarees but finding a pair that fit me is like a quest for the Holy Grail, and it's driving me nuts! If you have any recommendations then please throw let me know. 

Other Things:
// I wanted to share who's been inspiring me on Instagram recently and who I'd definitely include in my February muses. These ace ladies snap stunning pics and create beautiful feeds, all with different styles and shot from various locations around the world. It's where I get my daily dose of heart eyes.
Top left: Frida over at Bon who snaps stylish selfies, cool studio spaces, hangs out with friends and pulls off the best grey locks // Top right: Julie over at Sincerely Jules who travels the globe and has a whopping amount of followers soaking up her sun kissed style // Bottom right: Irina over at Irinahp will make anyone envious with her foodie adventures, I'm totally hooked on her IG feed, totally love at first sight // Bottom left: Jasmine over at Jasmine Dowling is an amazing creator of words and prints, not to mention her style posts that make you want to soak up that Aussie vibes!

Also let's take a sec to swoon over these pins! I love this secret roof garden I pinned to my outdoor spaces board, a happy little hideaway to drink coffee and day dream among the clouds. Also keeping a note of these avocado recipes as I'm eating almost one a day at the moment!

I've started tagging some of my Instagram pics with the #moodboardandmuses hashtag so I can create a feed full of inspiration, whether it's style, colour, words, coffee etc and it would be fab if you want to join in. I'm hoping to find some fun new accounts and hopefully showcase some new muses here.

Have you got any plans for the month of love?



  1. I love my tops hop dungarees, but I also got a vintage pair from eBay and had my local seamstress change the cut of the leg to my liking. You could always give that a try? Love your posts btw, I'm fairly new to your blog xxx

    1. OOh I didn't even think about eBay! what a great idea! Thanks for reading! I'm glad you're enjoying them and thanks for the great tip! x

  2. I love the spring vibe to this month's moodboard! I'm looking out the window at the grey skies now and just dying for them to lift... can't wait for the weather to get slightly warmer.

  3. Oh and thanks for the link to the Green People skincare, it looks absolutely brilliant!!

  4. If you find an amazing pair of dungarees please do let me know! I'd love a pair, but I just don't think I'm the right shape for them - not sure they really suit a big bottom/boobs combo terribly well :-(

  5. Have you thought about making your own dungarees? You could use a nice light fabric, maybe a floral or something. Shorts are super easy to make! I have the same issue, my butt isn't highstreet shaped! Haha. That's why I learnt to sew! x

  6. Fab moodboard. I've got plans to fill my home with indoor plants this year, I'm a bit obsessed. I love that coat at the top, gorgeous! Amanda (The Ana Mum Diary)

  7. This is a great moodboard. I enjoyed reading this. We use Green People products for my little people, it's the only brand of suncream my son can use. Not really any plans for Vday but it's my Bday this weekend so my Mum is having our little people and I'm going to a hotel with the hubby. Can't wait. xxx

  8. I love dungarees too, in theory, but I can't find any that look right on me! If you do find any then please let us know :-)

  9. No suggestions from me on the dungaree front, I'm tying to find a pair myself. I agree on the hydration it's something I'm trying to do myself as my skin just looks awful due to the sheer amount of coffee I have drank. I love your idea on using that hashtag on Instagram, I may just need to have a look at it myself.

  10. I love this Lori, keep it up. Thanks for the IG recs, am now following Frida and Jasmine xx

  11. Stunning collage! Have a great Saturday, lovely. x

  12. I am also loving that Green People skincare range, particularly the face oil, and trying to drink loads of water. Collage looks lovely too x

  13. That avocado bagel look amazing! I need to eat it like now!! I also really want some dungarees but my 11 yo tells me I'm too old!!

  14. We will be travelling to Greece for half term to see hubby's relatives so will spend Valentine's Day sipping coffee in the sunshine and enjoying each other's presence. Lovely shots1xx
