When Emma and I spoke about organising the Gather and Tend retreat at Tilton House, we were both sure we wanted to be able to eat outside in the beautiful courtyard. We were so lucky with the weather and it was a real treat to be able to dine outdoors at the beginning of October. If you missed Part One of the slow living retreat you can catch up here, but before you do, have a closer look at this glorious table and find out what we got up to in the afternoon sessions.
Well, you all know that nature is a big inspiration to me. Spending time outdoors and playing amongst nature is one of the main things that helps me slow down and of course it improves my well-being too.
Farrow & Ball have just launched a new range of floral themed wallpapers, and I was really delighted to be set the challenge (a long with a handful of other bloggers) of bringing their new wallpaper designs to life using flowers and nature.

It’s been a while since I shared any of the wonderful photographs that are captured using the hashtag #slowlivingforlife, so I thought I would pop in with some Winter favourites. Here are a selection of images that make me exhale and feel calm just by looking at them.

It’s been about a month since Danielle from Hippie In Disguise and I started the new slow living hashtag ‘slow living for life’ and today I wanted to share my first selection of photographs from the gallery.
Thanks to all that have participated so far. Remember the hashtag has no monthly theme now. Anyone can join in and share a photo on Instagram, you just have to put the hashtag #slowlivingforlife in your caption. I’m really looking forward to seeing the gallery grow full of slow living inspiration.
Here are my favourites moments shared from September and there is a grid over on Instagram too.
