| The Weekend Bag / The Beach Bag | . Whatever you called it, this cotton canvas bag with tan leather straps and a sewn-in pocket (with a zip) will happily hold everything essential for a slow Sunday. . Pictured is Animal Vegetable Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver @ayearoffoodlife which I read a few years ago and absolutely loved. One idea that stayed with me is how each season offers the fruit and vegetables most needed to sustain us. I always find it funny and a little tragic that some supermarkets need to slap an "in season" sticker on the fruit and veg that have not been imported from a different hemisphere. I believe there is a time for everything and we'd do well to take note of natures rhythms. 🌿🍃 What do you think?
A slightly earlier post as I'm off out this evening for drinks with some girlfriends - cannot wait! Hopefully we'll get a seat by the fire as it's a wee bit chilly at home. Our (very old) boiler has died and we are without heating until Tuesday. Very grateful to local friends for kindly lending us electric heaters and offering us showers. Our immersion heater didn't seem to be working but with a little fiddling and poking I got it to work! Woo hoo! Girl power! 💪👏😆Thank goodness, as there's only so much dry shampoo can do! Hope you're all having a lovely (and warm) weekend! . . . . . #ethicalhome #gatherandcurate #earthinspiredhome #bevisuallyinspired #inspiredbynature #natureinspired #bolgabaskets #natureinthehome #naturalhome #handmade #shopsmall #lovelifeoutside #theartofslowliving #forestbathing #livingwithplants #momentsofmine #documentyourdays #seekthesimplicity #mothernaturerocks #curatednature #thesimpleeveryday #woodlandwalks #simpleliving
When daydreaming about moving into our future and thinking of all the hinges we needed, every Pinterest image I’d ever seen popped into my mind. You wouldn’t believe the endless list of things I “needed” to complete a living room let alone a whole house. So we stopped talking about things we NEEDED and took the time to think about moments we wanted more of. Sitting outside at the end of the night, enjoying meals with no distractions, spending less time in our bedroom, being able to give Oliver a wide open living room to play in. That when we realized, less is way more. That’s around the time I really started looking into minimalism and found @theminimalists I’d give their podcast a listen if you’re feeling overwhelmed by things you “need” and the mess that comes with them and the debt that it takes to get them. It’s quite a load off, I’ll tell ya. . . . . . #minimalist #minimalism #minimalistlifestyle #theminimalist #darlingmovement #thehappynow #thesimpleeveryday #cornersofmyworld #fromwhereistand #thiswildhome #thiswildtribe #flashesofdelight #livecolorfully #petitejoys #abmhappylife #theslowdowncollective #liveauthentic #instagood #choosejoy #oureverydaymoments #humaneffect #documentlife #iphonography #photography #livethelittlethings #ohheymama #motherhoodunplugged #unitedinmotherhood #theeverydayproject
Do you know Green Kitchen Stories? If you don’t you should immediately follow them @gkstories @luisegreenkitchenstories but also their blog, they app, their books! It saves my every day cooking, my longing for healthy eating and my lack of inspiration sometimes... Recipes are always what they it will be and you always have alternatives for ingredients you don’t have or vegan version you want. I just love all of their recipes! My son is gluten sensitive but is also difficult with food so this is such great possibilities! Did you know them? Have you already tried? #whpthankful - This is banana spinach pancakes and everyone loved it (which is an achievement as usually if Lily likes it, Eliott doesn’t and vice versa 😱🌿 . . . . . . #subjectlight #littlestoriesofmylife #myeverydaymagic #livemoremagic #eatmoremagic #karenbhtable #embracingtheseasonsathome #searchwandercollect #astilllifestyle #food52 #seekinspirecreate #momentsofmine #aquietstyle #seeingthepretty #distractionsandinspirations #simplepleasures #forprettyssake #thesimpleeveryday #nestandflourish #foreverfaffing #styleonmytable #domesticforaging #capturemessy #homeisacupoftea
Anyone know that feeling when the process and the technique is more satisfying than the result? It’s easy to forget that sometimes it’s good not to obsess over the lines on the page but the act of making them instead, and that it’s very necessary to sketch for sketching’s sake, with no clear objective, to sift the mud and find the gold.
I love this impromptu selfie I took of Isaac and I, the other day 🖤 It shows his character off perfectly! I hope you’ve all had a good start to your weekends? We had a busy morning, then my mum took Isaac to the cinema and for a sleepover at hers. Bless her heart. I needed my batteries recharged. Have a lovely night whatever you all get up to 😘
Goodnight little shop, you did good today... see you in the morning (we’re open at 11.30am) #ryderandhope

↞ i n t o t h e m i s t ↠ Well...the Boy & I went for a walk...and in true ‘hey the weather looks fine let’s go for a walk totally unprepared for bad weather’ style the mist rolled in and the wind howled. It. Was. GREAT. (And freezing)
Pumpkin or pecan? One of my grandmother’s always made the pecan, and the other, pumpkin. I am 💯pumpkin. Always made with freshly roasted pie pumpkins, there is nothing like my grandma’s pumpkin pie. Two just came out of the oven. 🥧🥧. • • • • • • #slowlivingforlife #thestoryofeveryday #littlestoriesofmylife #organicmoments #slowlived #welllived #seeksimplicity #loririce #livelittlethings #eattheworld #onthetable #thebakefeed #foodphoto #tastingtable #beautifulcuisines #deliciousfood #foodie_features #simplepleasures #storyofmytable #nytcooking #mycommontable #goodeats #thefeedfeed #thesimpleeveryday #eatseasonal #appetitejournal #heresmyfood #foodphotographer #slowmorning

Anyone fancy doing my make up + hair so I resemble this for my night out tonight? Cause right now I'm in my wellies, I have a birthday party pick up at 5:45, three mouths to feed (fish fingers + potato waffles🤦🏽‍♀️), post football baths to sort + a gin to be poured (for me🙋🏽) before the sitter arrives...too much to ask? Tag all the single parents in the comments who rock the show solo all the time, not just for a 48 hour window like I'm doing. 💪🏽 💥♥️. - Photo @jaynelindsayphotography
