{new} to ONR | sneaky peeky |

Hello all,

I thought I'd share with you today a little project that I have been working on - it's a new product that I will soon be bringing to my little Etsy shop, just in time for summer {I hope}.

As you are I'm sure well aware, I have a bit of an addiction to succulents {there are worse things to be addicted to right?!}. Well I thought what better way to spread the love and bring a little bit of summer into all of your homes than to offer little terrarium/planter kits in my shop! They are the easiest plants to look after, and they're super forgiving if you forget to water them sometimes {oops} - so they make the perfect addition to even the most un-green fingered individual. Plus they come with all of the advice you need to keep them thriving! simples.
Each one will come with everything you need to get started with your own little succulent garden:

*//. hand illustrated cup planter
*//. proper cacti & succulent soil
*//. fine gravel
*//. the all important succulent or cacti
*//. a little care sheet
PLUS
You'll then have the option for a few pounds extra to purchase a little terrarium toolkit which will give you everything you need to keep them happy going forward!

*//. plastic spray bottle {for just the right amount of weekly water}
*//. soft bristled paint brush {for dusting soil out of the leaves}
*//. round ended tweezers {for getting rid of dead leaves but not hurting the pretties}
*//. long handled metal spoon {to move soil into hard to reach places around your plant}
*//. a little handmade canvas bag to keep it all in!

There will also be the option to opt for bigger planters with a few more plants for the adventurous ones amongst you!


I'd really love to know what you think...all comments, suggestions, questions welcome :)

{hello} Wilderness Festival!


Hello all,

As you most probably know, this weekend I was lucky enough to enjoy a whole three days in the glorious sunshine of Cornbury Park with my lovely boy Jack. 

Wilderness was absolutely amazing! The festival itself was set in woodlands and had THE coolest {freezing cold} swimming lake - which I definitely made the most of. I could write a massive post about how ace everything was - it was all ace - especially the food - well - the ice-cream, rhubarb crumble icecream none the less...I will need to find the recipe! Anyway, a massive long post is not what I'm going to write as for those of you not there it would totally be a massive *yawn* moment..

So, instead I'm sharing some pretty pictures of the weekend for you to enjoy! Cue many wildernessy pretty shots and several potentially vom inducing - but very cute couple shots!


If you get the chance next year - go.

seeing green..

..in a good way!

Our whole flat is like a little oasis at the moment and soon it'll be like a jungle, I can't wait. Last year we moved into our gorgeous apartment - our lounge and kitchen are joined and follow a huge semi-circular curve with 8 floor-to-ceiling lovely south facing windows, it's pretty lovely! 

So last summer one of my friends recommended a company called Rocket Gardens, who grow organic fruit, veg and herbs from seed and when they are big enough they sent them to you all beautifully packed. We grew lettuces, tomatoes, beans, beetroot, spinach, spring onions, chillies, all sorts...it was great but there were things we loved and wished we'd had more of and things that we didn't really like - so this year I decided to get stuck right in and grow lots of lovely plants from seed! I'm on my way to having pointed sweet peppers, bell peppers, red chillies, caribbean chillies, strawberries and 9 different types of tomatoes...it is literally super exciting times here!

Anyway, I thought I'd share some little pictures I took yesterday of all of the green I have around me right now!













Definitely recommend getting growing to everyone, who says you did a big garden to grow vegetables eh?

xo.

love this...




How amazing is this glittery nail varnish? PERFECT for summer! These photos totally don't do it justice, I couldn't get a great picture but I think these capture the essence all the same! It's from Topshop..you can get it here, but it's amazing! (I think I already said that but it is!). It comes out as thick glitter, not the usual clear polish with one or two glittery specks. I did use four coats but it dries super quick.

{update} Just opened the door to a delivery man and he said "love the nails!!". ha.

I also thought I'd share some pictures I've taken today in the lovely summer sun in my garden.







Hope everyone is also getting a chance to enjoy the sun - even if it is just an hour to enjoy lunch outside!

xo.
