Happy Wednesday 🌸 I’m totally destroying my feed to post this photo but I thought it was about time I properly introduced myself ☺️ Hi! I’m Faye, I’m from London but I’m currently living in Hertfordshire 🏠 I work as a retoucher for a high end fashion retailer and I blog/ share my photography on Instagram as a hobby (currently)👩🏻‍💻 I’m quite a self conscious person so I don’t share much of myself on my Instagram but I’m working on pushing myself out of my comfort zone, so expect to see some more personal posts coming soon 🙋🏻 I have two cats called Betsy and Tinky and my favourite food is pasta 🍝 Introduce yourself in the comments, I’d love to get to know you! ☺️💗 • • • #simplepleasures  #luxe  #theluxelife  #slaytheflatlay  #pursuepretty  #flatlay  #thegirlgang  #makeupaddict  #pinknation  #darlingdaily  #bblogger  #rosegold  #bookstagram  #flashesofdelight  #goodreads  #inspiringsimplicity 

I bought that #monsteraadansonii  a few months ago in a plant shop inside a tube station at a very reduced price because it was doing very badly (problably had been down there with no light for too long). Fast forward a few months now and it looks happy and healthy and keeps getting new leafs. Happy I took you home with me my leafy friend 🌿 You got any great plant recovery stories?

Phase 2 done. Tomorrow I'll cut and install the mouldings, touch up the tiles, add a bit more insulation and design a plant shelf to go with it. A lot of projects get started here when its actually not the best time to do it, but because the most expensive materials can actually be sourced at that time or afforded. Retrofitting a century home is not easy. Most modern doors and windows will not fit. This was the case with the kitchen window. We put it in 2 years ago when we found it but finishing it has not been a priority when other things needed to be completed first (fence and deck to name a couple). I'm okay with roughed in until I'm ready to complete a project or space. Today was the right day to start on this one again. . #renovations  #retrofitting  #centuryhome  #cataloguehouse  #EpicLife  #summer  #epicsummer  #inspire  #create  #strongwomen  #healthy  #family  #countrylife  #simplepleasures  #yxe  #yxeliving  #prairielife  #sasklife

Honestly can’t tell you how special it was to sit in front of the Eiffel Tower eating croissants for breakfast this morning ☺️🥐 We may have sacrificed the first lie-in of our holiday but it was SO worth it to get there before the crowds!

Lots of talk about feeling frustrated about the curated, fake feel that is Instagram these days. I’m not really in that crowd - I kind of just love that it’s like a free magazine. 😂 But for everyone that wants to get on here and see some real life - head on over to stories and see a bit of my disasters and some quick clean ups. 😂🙈

This week, my little cousin turned 12 years old. We celebrated her birthday with a raspberry buttercream chocolate cake. Let me say that again with emphasis: real handmade buttercream frosting - the good stuff like your grandmother used to make! I’m still smiling just thinking about it. 😋🎂💕 @butterbakedgoods. 

It’s nice to get an afternoon shower. It makes my house all moody and dark.

Hi #bookstagram ! Can you believe that summer is almost over?! ☀ . Where has the time gone? School is just around the corner for us and I have to admit that I'm really excited to take the boys school shopping. 📚 . I have fond memories of going school shopping with my mom and sister @itsreenaparekh.  It would usually include going to Kmart, Zellers and then #mcdonalds  for lunch. Those were some good times! ❤ . "... the people and places you discover along the way in life can be as significant-sometimes more significant-than the family you're born into." 👪 . Drawing home by Jamie Brenner was a refreshing read. It was the perfect book to take to the beach. 🏖 . The story took place over the summer months. I found it to be a sweet story about family. Family doesn't have to related by blood. It's the bonds we make and the relationships that we have that create families. 👪 . A tragic death set into motion the events that changed Penny's and her mom's life. Finding her purpose after a tragic loss in her life was a challenge for Penny but once she was able to overcome the grief, Penny was able to focus on the positives in her life. . "Someday you will find your own superpower." 🏖 . Over the course of the summer, Emma, Penny's mom's, world changes drastically. Emma had created and established a consistent routine but with the events that took place her world was turned upside down. As Emma was forced to accept these changes, she opened her home and her heart to possibilities. ♥ ____ I have to admit that I am a sucker for love and the possibility of new beginnings. #September  is that for me. Also, my #birthday  is in September! ❤ Have a great rest of the summer! Xoxo😁

Foraged #puffball  for dinner was 100% the MOST delicious thing I’ve eaten for ages... 😍🤤🍄 simply fried with butter, garlic and parsley served on fresh bread with a cool glass of rosé...

I feel like I’ve been so absent from ig this week. Monday I started a clean with me video and was going to finish yesterday, but I woke up feeling sick. Today I’m feeling much better and I am currently finishing the video! It should be up on my channel tomorrow 🤞🏻🧹🧼

Not my desk, still my office for work-from-home Wednesday 🤸🏼‍♀️ . It's so fun to look at my shelves and see the history on them. A print from my college roomie, a vase blown by my nephew's dad, a radio from my Nonno's barbershop, a candle chime from my grandparents. These are the kinds of things that make home, home - minimalism is cool and everything, but adding your own warmth and history to it is even better 💛

Wednesday #mendsday  My little boy is pretty rough on his pants. Today I’m patching his joggers with twin layers of black jersey (from old leggings) and 6 strands of gold embroidery floss. I did cross stitch around the patches because this stitch will stretch as he moves. Plus I like the angles the thread makes with the color blocked angles on the pants. After the patches were stitched on I trimmed the corners, trimmed a loose thread from the waistband and showed my boy. He said “are those my new patches? Oooh! I like them!” #slowliving  #progressnotperfection  #verilymoment  #theartofslowliving  #instagood  #busylife  #simplepleasures  #makedoandmend  #lovedclotheslast  #mindfulmending  #visiblemending  #mendandmakedo

day 21 | #everydayeyecandy  Here is my Variegated String of Hearts or Ceropegia woodii. (The plant that was casting the heart shadows on Frida in the last picture.) It’s my absolute favorite succulent. It’s just so sweet and dainty and beautiful! I got this one back in January and it’s grown several feet since then, so I guess it’s pretty happy. I couldn’t possibly love it any more!! 💚💕 . . . . . #lovesuccs  #succulentobsessed  #succulentlove  #succulent  #succulove  #myfavorite  #sobeautiful  #prettypretty  #nevergetsold  #plantlove  #vsco  #vscocam  #vscogarden  #graceandsaltyairlovessucculents  #graceandsaltyairlovesplants  #simplepleasures  #everydayphotoaday  #augusteyecandy  #graceandsaltyaireverydayphotoaday

Absolutely beautiful 🌅

Today on “Cooking with Mommy” 😂 The princess wanted to help me cook again today, so that’s what we did. She’s been learning about sautéing veggies and has been amused that cutting onions can cause tears. All the while, we have been listening to audiobooks...I’d say today has been a good day. #SimplePleasures  💕

Making drop biscuits from my trusty Joy of Cooking recipe (you can see the well loved corner of the book there, it survived the fire on our first boat, it’s just a little blackened now 😂) in my trusty iron skillet, because when you don’t have an oven you improvise and I am the absolute queen of making do with what you have #boatlife  #boatcooking  #sailboatlife  #joyofcooking  #simplepleasures 

The other day I found THE HUGEST knot in my hair. It was on the back of my head and too big to cut so Justin had to basically brush it out 😣 and that’s when I knew.... it’s time for a cut 💇🏽‍♀️ I’ve always loved my hair long but I am not at all disappointed in the result. ITS SO LIGHT & FREEING! Now i understand why moms always cut their hair 🤣 ⠀ Thanks @inspiresyourhair  - you did an amazing job as always. 💕 ⠀ • • • #theeverygirl  #darlingdaily  #pursuepretty  #simpleandstill  #seekthesimplicity  #peoplescreative  #brightaesthetic  #postitforaesthetic  #chooselovely  #verilymoment  #inspiremyinstagram  #littlestoriesofmylife  #abmhappylife  #flashesofdelight  #livecolorfully  #theeverydayproject  #feelfreefeed  #simplepleasures  #makeitblissful  #darlingmovement  #seemycity  #dfwbloggers  #satxbloggers  #risenmotherhood  #sanantoniomoms  #shorthairrocks  #hairstyled  #lifestyleblogger  #shorthairdontcare

6.22am. Sing your song.

✰⋆。:゚・*☽:゚ . An excellent half-day off dedicated to this -fair trade organic dark chocolate (82%) and roasted walnuts go perfectly with my movie watching😌🌿 . . . I’ve recently started my journey to catch up with what’s been going on in MCU and decided to watch from phase 1! Having watched Avengers 1, Iron Man, Iron Man2 and Mighty Thor, I guess time has finally come to move on to phase2 (or should I not skip Captain America..?) . My absolute fave so far has been Mighty Thor and I cannot wait to watch Loki’s adventure in the second &third series onwards 🙊💚⚔️ Now I’m obviously too far into MCU to go back to where I used to be lol . . #Fairtrade  #Organic  #Darkchocolate 

*** . . Our limited time schedule didn’t allow us to get inside, but at least, we managed to see that beautiful Orsay clock from outside 🕰✨and you can clearly see how excited I was . . . 激混みオルセーは今度絶対リベンジするよの決意のポーズ よく見たら手袋の先がへにょん☺️ . どうしてもこの時計を入れたくて、むぅちゃん頑張って下から撮ってくれた😭💕笑 .
