Of all the things I make for people, it’s fresh baked bread that gets people most excited, even more than a triple layer chocolate cake with ganache frosting. Our connection to such a simple thing—flour, water, salt and yeast—feels about so much more than food but about community, slowing down, and gratitude. Pictured here is a sourdough focaccia from @theclevercarrot’s new book. There is a little tutorial of the easy process in my story highlights of you want to make some too.

Still Tuesday. We threw these flowers away today because they were starting to smell. Nothing lasts forever.
The afternoon slump. It's real. And luckily so are @spotify playlists!
Our @engine_8 office put together a few of our favorite songs to jam out to when we start dreaming of naps rather than marketing checklists.
What is your favorite song to jam out to in the middle of the work day? 🎶 #engine8design#onthetable_project
Medium sized, chunky grey tibetan quartz. These crystals form in the Himalayas of Tibet. This is thought to be one of the most sacred areas on Earth, and thousands of years of spiritual practices have left their positive energy and spiritual information deeply engrained in the cells of the crystals that grow there ✨ This one is available!
*Crystal information from The Book of Stones
Post it up 📸 And of course the bathroom mirror picture 👀
Fun fact: while taking these photos someone came out of the building to turn something off and made direct eye contact with me for what felt like forever. It probably was one of the more awkward moments I've had taking blog photos so far. Although the guy who once decided to jump in the way of the camera and give the middle finger (and somehow still completely missed being in shot) might be the most weird moment yet. Have you had any weird moments when taking photos?
Thank you so much to everyone last night who purchased from my new fabrics range! Cannot thank you enough for your support. [insert small business owner happy dance here] 😄

•eight months• six teeth. still thinking about crawling. loves eating, bath time and laughing. shares a room with sophia now, and they both love it. probably a good thing he cannot quite crawl yet, because Sophia is not quite down with him playing with “her” things 🙊
as my lil is curled up warm in a ball sleeping bedside me.... i can’t help being so happy. It’s you and me and nothing else.
Have you ever felt a season shifting into the *new ? Where everything you knew and loved, suddenly feels so old. Everything’s in need of *completely different ?
A whisper of solitude lures you and asks you to join along. It beckons you to lay bare before spirit. Thoughts lay quietly awakened saying nothing, but being where a shedding of layers fall off. The years past of toxic lusts. Greed. Envy. Jealousy. Lust. Sex. Pride. Fear. Anger. Vanity. Self-seeking. Lies. Shame. Guilt. Insecurity. You say yes unashamed unembarrassed. humbled. we are all victims. letting the bad fruit rot. Take it. For I am made for something *new. with desire for only good fruit to bare. Peace. Patience. Long suffering. Compassion. Kindness. Love. Joy. Trust. Virtue. love, Goodness, Trust, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-control. & I’m so happy.💫Spirit you are so good.
been back a month and haven't seen my city yet um why 🤔

Oh hey there Valor, my favorite oil that I use for literally everything and smells like sweet berries and goodness.
Lately I have been rubbing this oil directly on my jaw line to help support the muscle discomfort I have been experiencing, and I absolutely am loving it!
We also use it on our oldest when those growing discomforts get to be too much!
Who else loves this unicorn oil?! 🦄
Летом с мамой ходили копать валериану, я первый раз увидела и понюхала (до этого только желтенькие таблетки видела). Какой сильный запах и у цветов, и у корня!
Look at what came in the mail today! It is the perfect little distraction from midterms. Jk i have to study. Jk I’ve already started reading it.
This morning he desperately wanted coffee (me too, kid) and I told him we could have some after his nap. So here we are, drinking some post-nap hot cocoa, bc ya know...two year olds never forget.

Be that girl who wakes up with purpose and intent. Be that girl that shows up and never gives up. Be that girl who believes anything is possible and is willing to work for it. At the end of the day, it’s you against you. Make yourself proud 💗
I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited for Spring but blue skies and slightly warmer days are giving me LIFE at the moment

Last night I just couldn’t sleep. I was trying so hard to get my mind to calm down but it kept going no matter how hard I tried. So as you can imagine, I am one tired, sleepless mama trying to get through the day. On a good side Matteo’s nap time is coming soon so yeah 😴
The pink obsession continues...was after a textured throw and this one from @homesense_ukie is super cosy and not expensive yay 💕 In baby news, we did a birth centre tour. Now I don't know if I feel more nervous or prepared 😄
