My favorite part about interviewing people is the opportunity to expand my view of the world by immersing myself in some else’s. Marie Chanteur’s pottery is maybe the polar opposite of my own but the world she creates is just the loveliest. Sometimes I do wish I were equally great at making clay tits...

Happy Hump Day!
How is it a week since we walked around Poulton and Cirencester. .
It’s been a busy few days and it doesn’t seem to be easing of anytime soon. I am still feeling relaxed but what I would give to be back in the middle of nowhere with good internet, a roaring fire and @jthesherman.
Brightening up my day with another orange & lemon drizzle cake ♡ 🍊🍋 ♡ lights are already on and it’s a tad chilly!! ... This is a Seville orange drizzle cake from a Waitrose recipe card that I picked up last week and very good it is too! I have used the alternative recipe of one orange and one lemon both times and it’s delicious ♡ ... I guess I best put that kettle on!!
🚨Gorgeous #homewares alert 🚨
When you buy your first home your priorities completley change. Forget nights out, girlie holidays and hoards of clothes, fancy crockery is your No1. Especially when it comes down to hosting 👀
Well, if you're like me then look no further than @rockettstgeorge.co.uk - they've got your ceramic needs sussed #rockettstgeorge 😍 I can honestly say Rockett St George are one of my favourite #homeware brands 🧡🖤🧡
This morning I was having a chat with my husband about what's been going on with work and he just looked at me and said "I'm so proud of you"
Oh my goodness, this meant EVERYTHING to me! He's been absolutely incredible with supporting me in whatever new thing I want to do and to hear those words just filled me up with so much love and determination.
So I thought I'd come on Instagram and share that positivity. If you're reading this, I am SO proud of you for all you've achieved. Keep following your dreams and never stop living your passions. You're doing an amazing job and I thought you deserved to hear it 💕
My book stack right now. #ontheblog today I’m talking about why reading is not just a worthy goal, but a necessary part of fulfilling our call to holiness.
Is reading something integral in your life or something that just never seems to appear in your life?
Yesterday we celebrated Will’s one week birthday with lots of snuggles, so many diaper changes and then more snuggles. Time is moving way too fast. 😭 Also I am so tired so overnight oats are the fanciest thing I plan to make for the foreseeable future. Flaxseed meal, chia seeds, coconut, raisins and a big scoop of peanut butter equals one nourished mama. .
My basic IV that keeps me going from early morning (coffee, yay!) until I say goodbye to my real life and welcome the dreamy one - can you live without books and wine? .
Macie już plany wakacyjne? Nam marzyła się Mołdawia, ale ze względu na chorobę małej małpki 🐒 pewnie nic z tego nie wyjdzie. Pozostaje nam testowanie mołdawskich win, które bardzo nam odpowiadają (zwłaszcza biorąc pod uwagę stosunek ceny do jakości 🙃). .
Wiedzieliście, że Mołdawia to najbiedniejsze państwo w Europie? Za to tradycja wyrobu win jest tam bardzo bogata 👌 Mam nadzieję, że jeśli nie w tym, to może w przyszłym roku będziemy testować je na miejscu ☺
My first roll of film I ever shot leaves me reminiscing about those overcast days in the Cotswolds, as if we were strolling the streets in a Beatrix Potter tale. image: @jannabrowndesign | muse: @caoimhe.o.dwyer | wardrobe: @garmentory @nisoloshoes | film processing: @richardphotolab
Видно не в деньгах счастье!
Лучше по жизни идти
В холод, в пургу, в ненастье,
Только с тобой по пути.
📌 сидела нынче в салончике, потягивала кофе, ибо мои глаза слипались после ночного кутежа и услышала интересный разговор... ⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀🤦🏻♀️ «Вот осел твой муж!» - сказала маникюрша клиентке. Ситуация была такая: муж клиентки лет на 25 младше ее (это я поняла, когда она обмолвилась, что он универ недавно окончил..) и однажды он заявил, что ему не нужны ее деньги и статус, он любит ее такой, какая она является в свои 57 лет и они поженились! Я яхидно улыбнулась...
Ослом этот молодой муженёк оказался потому, что она застукала его со своей горничной в их пастели! «Какой кошмар», подумала я засунув свою лапку в маникюрную лампу. ⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ☝🏽 интерес этой ситуации в том, что муженёк молодой, гормоны играют, она ему не особо, что может дать, кроме звенящих. После 2 лет брака он променял шикарную машину, дом, дорогую одежду, рестораны на молодую горничную и свалил с ней в закат ночью, даже ничего не сказав старушке. ⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁉️ выйдя из салона я находилась в приятном трепете духа. Я рада, что хоть когда то люди все таки приходят к осознанию того, что деньги все таки не самое главное) что думаете?
how fun is this gold foil pleated skirt from @alc_ltd!? taking advantage of this rare summery weather in the middle of nyc winter while sticking to a cold weather color palette b/c i forgot to pack anything colorful this trip (thinking I'd be mostly in sub-freezing temps b/c you know... FEBRUARY 🤤🤣) 😁
Last year we travelled to Bulgaria. Twice. There I’ve found the best shampoo ever. And now it’s running out 😱 I think I might need to return quite soon. For the shampoo. That is completely sane, right? (Okok, maybe also because I absolutely LOVE the country and have been dying to go for a hike around the mountains).
Our interview with the very talented @limehouseceramics is up on the journal now. Chatting with Elizabeth for just a short while was enough to reveal her passion and enthusiasm for what she does, and she kindly took some time out from finishing her novel (!) to answer a few of our questions about what life as a ceramicist entails... #readmoreonthejournal#linkinbio // words @oliviawilliamson_

The Laundress, a housewife’s salvation. It’s traditional that we finish our Spring cleaning before #CNY . It’s so intense I couldn’t have made it w/o The Laundress, their products are pure gold and they definitely deserve a lot more attention. I have the entire collection, ranging from clothing detergent to household cleaning. I own a lot of cashmere and silk garments and I simply can’t risk sending them to dry cleaners, the chemicals they use destroy the fiber. The Laundress is the ultimate solution to all our laundry problems, I no longer send my clothing to dry cleaners, they’re safer in The Laundress’ capable hand.
As for your usual household cleaning, we both know just how important it is for the cleaning solution to be toxin-free. We have pets at home, I need my cleaning products to be efficient and safe, The Laundress delivers. I’ve been using them for ten years and I seriously cannot imagine what my life would be like w/o them. I think they’re on sale so it’s the best time to grab a bottle online.
#TheLaundress 是我深愛的天然居家清潔品牌，實在沒辦法想像沒有他的人生。身為主婦，居家清潔用品有效外，更要無毒，主婦常常在做家事的過程中透過皮膚與呼吸道吸入有害化學物質，這些微量的毒素在長期累積之下都會對健康造成很大的威脅！好衣服要用最好的方式照顧，我擁有許多cashmere毛衣，送洗後發現化學物質會破壞毛料纖維，常常穿兩個冬天衣服就被洗壞了...十年前開始改用The Laundress的cashmere shampoo，衣服不用送洗好省錢，而且膚觸跟壽命都大幅增加～人都要因材施教了，衣服當然也要依照材質與特性區分洗劑，身為長期愛好者，整個洗衣系列都推！
There’s just something about Nosara, Costa Rica. It’s laid back, surf – yoga town charm lures you in from the moment you arrive. Nosara simply is a perfect place for a fun, family beach vacation in Costa Rica. And Nosara definitely didn’t disappoint for the Oleksak family. Trading one seaside town to another, Charleston for Nosara, the Oleksaks had a blast playing on the beach, getting dirty in the sand, surfing, and relaxing in tropical Pura Vidadise. Shannon and Jake, mom and dad to Owen and Evie, were even able to enjoy a beautiful, romantic evening one night at La Luna while the kiddies were having a blast with their babysitter back at their awesome hotel, Nalu Nosara @nalunosara.
Halfway through their family vacation, I met up with this awesome family for some super fun Nosara family photos. Owen had a blast playing with the incoming waves on the shoreline with his mom and flipping with his dad. Owen’s little sister, señorita Evie, couldn’t have been happier than to immediately plop down and play in the sand. And then there was the oh-so-cool blow hole on the beach at Playa Pelada, because who doesn’t like a blowhole?! Photographer to photographer, thank you Shannon for trusting me to capture such beautiful moments during you family vacation in Nosara!
I've been spending a lot of time on understanding emotions + the brain. Did you know that in our brain we have a "seat of emotions"? It's called the Amygdala.
What is the Amygdala? Its responosible for our emotions, survival instincts, and memory. It influences our behaviors and activities. It is concerned with emotions such as anger and jealousy, as well as drives hunger, thirst and sexual desire. The amygdala gland does not respond to sound, sight, or touch but ONLY releases emotional trauma through the sense of smell. It makes me think of Remy when he makes Anton Ego, the food critic, Ratatouille. Anton Ego takes a long sniff of his dish and instantly has a memory of when his mama used to make it for him. It was a happy memory. The smell took him back to his childhood. That's what our amygdala does!! Everything we have experienced is stored in the amygdala and only the sense of smell releases the emotion.
We live in a society of emotional turmoil. More and more the evidence is accumulating that our emotional health can effect our physical body systems. Fear and trauma can produce conditioned emotional responses that unless released will not only hamper our ability to live and enjoy life fully but can also limit the ability of some body systems to function properly particularly the immune system.
This is why I use oils. I use oils such as VALOR to encourage strength, Present Time to help keep me focused in the NOW, Joy to attract love and enhance self love. There are so many more!
