Is Bristol Christmas Ice Rink in the Podium still open on Jan 13th?
Here are a few ways to make Halloween a scream for both children and adults with ways to decorate your home, carve your pumpkins and have a few creepy cocktails for the blood-thirsty people later on in the evening!
There are many ways to carve your pumpkins. Although the tradition is to carve a scary face into a pumpkin and leave it by your front door, I always like to be a little different. And as I like the creative side I thought of trying something new. These oumkkins are all beautifully carved and decorated and much more original.
You just need to get a few sweeties that you can push a squewer through to make a hole. Then push some thread or ribbon though, tie a knot after each one and tie up the ends to make a necklace! Then you can hang these or hide these around the house for everyone to find. Or keep them by the door to hand out to trick or treaters! You can find some brilliant ghoul and goblin sweets here, or just use normal pick n’ mix sweets. I like to put them in black and white stripy paper bags as well. These are easy to create as well, simply by buying a pack of small paper bags - if they’re plain bags, you can decorating them yourself with felt tips, pencil crayons, sparkles and much more!

Never stop experimenting when it comes to design. One way to create your own design is with tiles. They should never be confined to just a kitchen or bathroom. Broken tiles can be used in mosaics for table tops, mirror or picture frames, decorative plant pots and much much more. But my new favourite thing is to add tiles to stair risers simply for decoration and colour. They can be tiles bought specially for this or a collection of all different left over tiles!
Aren’t these lovely? I love how a complete tiling novice (like myself!) can do this too as the tiles fit in easily between each step. And by doing this you can use your imagination and bring some boring plain steps to life by adding your own original design.
I love her. Part of me wants to be her. But then I thought about the amount of travelling she must have to do to get to photo shoots and interviews and other bits and pieces, and suddenly appreciated my comfort. But then I saw these pictures of her beautiful home, and the jealousy came rushing back. Her house is beautiful, the word heaven isn’t good enough. Her interiors are colourful, imaginative and so creative. I wouldn’t mind having a busy busy schedule if I had this to come home to every night!

Love this song! Listen to her album, Wounded Rhymes. Truly beautiful.
These pictures are from our holiday in the South of France! It was sos beautiful there, I didn’t want to leave! It was so hot and sunny everyday, with lovely and warm evenings! We stayed Nice in the old town in a lovely little apartment, (yourniceapartment.com) and explored the coast from there. But as we were only there for a week we couldn’t fit everything in! We visited Cannes, Antibe, Monaco, Nice and St Tropez. They were all so beautiful, all with amazing ports and buildings. I definitely want to go back to see the rest!
