Let's talk about #instainspo for @home_interior_uk photo challenge.... For me, the absolute queen of Instagram inspiration and drool worthy images is Peggy Bell aka @interior_alchemy Each image is gorgeous, her home is like a magical bohemian wonderland with all the colour, texture and pattern you could dream of. I am so inspired by her boldness and attention to detail, I love it. I never thought I would be have a maximalist bohemian home... but then again I never thought I'd be married or have kids so what did I know? Do check out her glorious feed. It's incredible! #homeinterioruk #Home_Interior_UK #teamcommunityfor #maximalist #bohoinspo #instacrush #goandfollow
Here, have a picture of me... in the first flipping jumper I've ever made! BOOM! I did it. I actually completed a knitted garment that wasn't a shawl/scarf/one tube... Also; I was going to crop out my crip-stick (I really don't like it being in photographs and usually hide it) but Owain took this picture of me and he said I looked lovely... so it stays. Because you can look lovely with a walking aid! And I need to start accepting that! Also also; I am in love with my @lucyandyak dungarees - so comfy - but they are bloody cat hair magnets! Argh! Props to my hometown Todmorden! #LookWhatIMade #Todmorden #lucyandyak #disabledlife #babewithamobilityaid #DisabledAndCute #alternativelifestyle #AlternativeLifestyleBlogger #DisabledMum #knittedjumper #imadethat #makedoandmend #makeyourown
We love handmade in our house! Whether we make something ourselves, or we buy pieces from other creative folk, handmade really is best 💖 This is my landing; featuring a macrame curtain (I made that), an old wooden mask (handmade ages ago), a basket of handmade blankets, an original oil painting rescued from the local Tapas bar and an upcycled plant stand (rescued from a neighbouring yard) 😍 It's a bugger to photograph though! #homeinterioruk #HowIHome #teamcommunityfor #teamcommunity #mybohoabode #myhandmadehome #makeityourown #macramecurtain #landinginspo #upcycleproject #howirent #HowIBoho #BohoOnABudget #AlternativeLifestyleBlogger
"Preparation" I really struggled with this prompt; I have to prepare a lot for things most folks don't even need to think of like going for a little walk, catching a bus, even coming down from my bedroom when I'm home alone... So how do I photograph that? Well to be honest I couldn't, so I thought I would share my #hinchlist for this week instead! On a Sunday evening, I either physically or mentally walk through the house and write down what needs doing over the week. Then my husband, my kids and I work through it steadily and tick it off as we go 😊 It helps clear my mind from unnecessary stress, helps my husband and kids know what to help with, and it boosts my confidence when I can tick something off that I managed to do/help with. Do you have a cleaning list? #homeinterioruk #homecleaninguk #teamcommunity #teamcommunityfor #MrsHinchMadeMeDoIt #CleaningMakesMeHappy #disabledlife
It's been a minute since I last posted for the #HomeInteriorUK October challenge - classic Dee 🤦♀️ Anyhoo, I had planned to stage a gorgeous picture of my dining table with lots of prettiness... but #disabledlife had a different idea 🤷♀️ So here's the lunch I made for myself yesterday: tinned veg soup and Vegemite on toast, in an old christmas mug from a pound shop 3 years ago 😂 #diningin #OctoberPhotoChallenge #heinzsoup #aestheticaf #gottalaugh #teamcommunity #teamcommunityfor #chronicillnesshumor
You know I have this thing with Corvids.... I've been longing for a pair of these wings since I first spied them on @vegan_awesome_collective page, I think almost a year ago? Anyhoo, here they are in all their beautiful colourful glory hung above our bed! If you'd like your own, they have some more in the shop and others can be made to order. They are handmade and hand painted, so each pair is utterly unique - just like the magical Crows 😍 #shoplocal #handmadeisbest #supportingartisans #supportsmallshops #veganawesome #hebdenbridge #MyBeautifulHome #BohoAbode #bohoonthelowlow #corvids #corvidlove #bedroominspo #wherethemagichappens
"Beauty Regime" Today's theme for @home_interior_uk is one of my most favourite things 😊 I adore skincare goodies; every day I make an effort to take care of my skin, even on days when I can manage barely anything at all my skin will be cleansed toned and moisturised at the very least! Here is a collection of my most used products clockwise from top; Essential oil roll on perfumes, @dr.botanicals Moroccan Rose Facial Oil @yourgoodskin Energizing Facial Scrub Homemade natural deodorant @kutis_skincare Detox Cleansing Mask @nurturing_soul Facial Soap Bar @cbdelights.uk CBD Lip Scrub Homemade facial toner/facial spritz. As you can see, I try to keep my skincare routine like the rest of my lifestyle - as natural and plastic free as possible! I'm really enjoying the facial scrub, but I am still looking for a plastic free option. I tried to make my own but nearly ripped my skin off. Ouch! 🤦♀️ The facial oil is my favourite product EVER and sadly it's almost run out 😭 must save up for more! What's your favourite skincare product? #homeinterioruk #teamcommunityfor #teamcommunity #beautyregime #lowwasteliving #lowwastebeauty #naturalskincareroutine #loveyourskinmore #myfavouriteproducts
Hmmm popcorn. The perfect snack for a movie night; usually the ready made stuff comes in horrible plastic wrappers and is cooked in goodness knows what! But did you know it's super easy and cheaper to make your own? Heat 1.5 tbsp of coconut oil in a heavy bottom, large pan with a tight fitting lid. When the oil is melted, drop 3 popcorn kernels into the oil and put the lid back on. Listen for the pops! When all 3 have popped, the temperature is perfect for the rest of your kernels. Pour half a cup of kernels into the pan, put the lid back on and shake. Keep shaking every 10 seconds - nobody likes burnt popcorn - and continue until the popping slows right down. Turn off the heat and shake continually until the popping stops. And you're done! My gang eat theirs with a sprinkling of sugar, salt or maple syrup but you can put any flavouring you want on or leave it plain 😊 What's your favourite movie snack? #homeinterioruk #teamcommunityfor #homemaker #myhandmadehome #frugalliving #plasticfree #moviesnacks #makeyourown
Skidding in again at the last minute for today's photo challenge and today's prompt is "Collection". I collect plants. I counted earlier and in my lounge alone I have 8 plant babies 🙊 Here's the brilliantly beautiful Big Bertha in all her glory 😍🌿🌱 How many house plants have you got? Do they thrive, or struggle to survive in your house? No judging - I just murdered an oxalis 😶 #homeinterioruk #Home_Interior_UK #teamcommunityfor #Monstera #MonsteraMonday #CrazyPlantLady #plantmama #IndoorJungle #HowIBoho #BohoAbode #octoberphotochallenge
