Family Fun // Trunkaroo

We had such a fab half term – and something I really appreciated was spending time with Busby whilst H-Bear had his afternoon naps. I don’t get much one-on-one time with her these days. The lovely folk at Trunkaroo sent Busby one of their fantastic activity boxes to try, and we had such a great time crafting and planting together that I’ve decided to share it with you all on the blog today. Trunkaroo was started by Sahar Meghani who wanted to create something a little bit  ...

Make // Flower Crown Tutorial

I decided to make Busby a flower crown for our Tale of Two Skirts shoot over the weekend (I love a good prop in my photographs, especially on my kidswear shoots). I’d not made one before, but having researched them (thank you Pinterest) they looked fairly easy to make – and they were.

Wedding DIY: A Lake District Wedding // Sarah from Toby Goes Bananas

We’re off on Honeymoon in the Lake District today, so it only seems appropriate to share Sarah (from Toby Goes Bananas) wonderful guest post now! What a talented lady she is! Our wedding in 2012 was a sort of shabby chic style. I basically just went with things I liked but tried to tie them together a little bit. We got married in the Lake District and decided to use the names of some of the Lake District fells as our table names so we had names like Helvellyn, Skiddaw and Coniston Old Man.
