Giveaway - Free August Wallpaper!

Hey everyone! Yep, it's time for me to show you the new downloadable wallpapers for the next month! Can you believe that we are going to be in August already?! Time definitely flies by...

This time I thought it would be good to concentrate on a elegant hand-drawn type and use one of the photos I've taken as a soft background with a subtle red tint to represent the warm but darker evenings of August. For the second option, I decided I would add a little calendar that would be useful to have on your desktop. Helps you keep track of the days going by!

As usual, you can download the first version here, and the second one here. I've also made a really nice one for your mobile that you can download here.

Hope you like them!

A Holiday in Prague (Part 1)

So I've finally managed to sort through the hundreds of photos we took in Prague! This first part covers our first two days in this amazing city. Enjoy!

During the first day, we discovered the Prague Castle with its beautiful Cathedral, and from there, walked downhill, taking in the stunning views of the city. We thought the scenery was so beautiful that we decided to head back at night and take some dramatic photos.

On the morning of the second day, we went to explore Petrin Hill and its iconic tower, catching a short ride on the funecular to reach the summit. We were actually surprised by the stunning colourful gardens we found at the top of the hill. We then walked around a few gardens dotted about the city in the afternoon and tried one of the street food speciality, which happened to be really tasty!

Hope you enjoyed the photos, part two is coming soon (hopefully)!!

DIY - Repainting old drawers

A few weeks ago, me and my man managed to redecorate our office room a little (for really cheap!) which looked a bit sad and neglected since we moved in. The first thing that needed a good refresh was definitely these grey drawers. So I thought I would show you the process of its transformation!

Because we wanted to keep the first coat of grey paint, we decided to not sand it down and directly applied a first coat of white paint (we actually had to add a second one as the grey was still showing through).

Once the drawers were totally dry, we decided to introduce some touches of bright colours on the middle stripes. Because we had almost no budget for this, the little paint pot samples were perfect!

Don't forget the masking tape! It's essential to make sure the edges are neat.

After sanding down the edges to give it a nice rustic effect, the last thing we needed to do was varnishing it to make sure that the paint won't get damaged. Et voilĂ ! Not bad eh?

Hope it gives you some ideas on how to freshen up your own furniture!

Enjoy your evening :)

Wandering - An afternoon in Conwy

Whilst I've got hundreds of photos of our holiday in Prague to go through, I thought I could show you some photos of a nice afternoon we spent in Conwy a couple of weeks ago. The sun was shining, I was wearing my sandals, and it just felt like it was finally summer time. We walked for miles around Conwy and just enjoyed the fresh air (we even spotted a cute little rabbit running around!).

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday (I think I'm in a mood for cake...)!
