Inspired by nature and creating with nature in collaboration with Farrow & Ball. Hop over to Geoffrey and Grace to see more photos...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 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.

Stories from France

stories from France on Geoffrey & Grace

When your family is spread around the world it can’t help but alter what being together feels like. Once or maybe twice a year, if we are lucky, do we all get to exist under the same roof for a day or two, and back in July we had a whole week of family time.
