Bold & Red – New prints From Vietnam

Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

If you follow me on Instagram you will know that we recently visited Myanmar(Burma) and Cambodia and as much as I wanted to stay and motorbike with my gorgeous and adventurous husband trough Vietnam and Laos, I couldn’t. I had to came home, do some work and while waiting for the runaway husband to come back: spring cleaned the house. I know I’m amazing.  I was really excited when he finally came back home (after a month!) with some awesome new prints for my spare bedroom feature wall. They feature Vietnamese propaganda and they are awesome, especially mother and the child with the gun and slogan : For our future!

Jordan found them in this small art gallery in Hanoi but unfortunately they don’t have a website. I have however managed to find this online shop that sells them.

New additions to our quirky country home

I have spent these last few months decorating our spare bedroom…things are moving slowly mostly cos of the lack of time. Busy season in SI headquarters:-) I manage to sneak a moment here and there on the good old net and even a quick trip down to the Homebase this past weekend. This is our spare bedroom progress so far:

new buys

1. I bought these blackout gray blinds in hope to be installed this weekend. They were 50% off of the original price + the 15% off of this past weekend. I needed a 3 awkwardly sized pieces as my bay window is a weird one. Have to cut each one of them! Cost of all together was : A bargain for £43.20! Normally, they would cost over a £100 and more…I felt really happy about myself once I bought them.

2.I will post a picture of the new blinds fitted on my bay window shortly together with the new bedding from Fab. The bed set(duvet x 2 pillow cases) was: £28, on sale again from £34!

3. While in Homebase I couldn’t resits buying this new shower curtain. The old one was soooooo outdated and this new one fits perfectly with our old fashion, slash modern bathroom. Hombase again: £7.99 – 15% = £6.77

I also got a new bed for the spare bedroom too. My friend Al gave it to me. It was wasting time in her garage and its brand new. All I need now is a mattress. I found a few but still thinking… It’s one of those things, hmm do I spend loads of monies on a mattress that nobody will sleep on or not? On average I have people staying at ours …30 days out of 365.

Anyway, it was in pine and I have spent last few weekends(yes, that’s correct) weekends painting it in dry/mat white! I was originally thinking of shabby chic but changed my mind and went with cold neutral tones for the hole spare bedroom. So grey, white and a bit of black it is/with a splash of colorful bedding + wall art!

Lastly: These two amazing prints that hubby bought on his trip to Mexico, last year in November finally got framed. Again, that is another thing “to do” on my list. Put them on the wall. But I guess that is the last thing I will be doing…in this mess of the spare bedroom!

Hope you all had a great weekend and good start to a working week,

Lol, Ines

New finds from Asos

A lot has happen since my last blog post and as much as I would like to keep you’all updated, my busy work schedule just doesn’t allow me to. Things are finally slowing down which means one (well 3 in this case) thing only, shopping, shopping & shopping! I was browsing Asos last night, (as you do) and manage to grab these 3 sale items for half of the price!

I been looking for some cat eye sunglasses for ages, I have found a few along the way but just couldn’t make up my mind, which resulted in them either being sold or me changing my mind again. I have been spying on these for almost a month and here the are:

cat eye sunglassesThis top has been on my short list for a while too, again on sale now. You gotta a love the print and the open back cut, cant wait to wear it with my boyfriend jeans:

open back topThis last item is why oh why! I’m really gutted! I found this bag on sale in duck egg color with rabbit fitting, 3 days ago… I really couldn’t make up my mind and when I came back, it was gone. So this was a decision made for me. Peach it is! With an owl.
