'super moon' phone wallpaper and fb cover




Have you read the previous post on the 'super moon'?
It was an inspiration to share with you these free phone wallpapers...to all you moon lovers out there (like me)!
Just save the image on your mobile and set it as wallpaper...that's it.

Below I also added a facebook cover image, if you are that way inclined.
Hope you like it and feel free to share it too.

"The sun loved 
the moon so much
he died every night
to let her breathe."


the super moon


It is a little bit late, but still worth it, I think. About three weeks ago we had a 'super moon', or blue moon.
Not only the moon itself can be a startling object of wonder (specially when its full) this super moon meant that it was brighter and bigger...and an even bigger delight to all those, like me, who love to stare at it, and wonder on it, and wish, and travel away with it...!

It has always been difficult for me to get a very good image of the moon, as it is for most of us, less experienced amateurs and lovers of photography - but nonetheless, I think this time it was definitely my best attempt to date (meaning - I will try again next time, of course).





I just love the way I got a few little stars too...so magical!
In the next post I will be adding a super moon freebie...so, come back to check on it!


"Sometimes, I think of the sun and the moon as lovers
who rarely meet, always chase,
and almost always miss one another.
But once in a while,
they do catch up and they kiss,
and the world stares in awe of their eclipse."


Love,
Pippa xoxo

kid's rooms :: black is back


I'm sure, the past few days, you have been hit with the fact that the summer holidays are almost over and it's time to immerse yourself in back-to-school mode. Maybe the time on your hands of getting back to 'normality' and a life without kids 24/7 has given you thoughts for re-decorating...now they're a year older, or getting into 'big' school is a reason to change their bedroom look to suit their new found 'grown' confidence.

This week, I have been taking a look at a few 'looks' for kid's rooms and found these great ideas using black.

It isn't a first choice colour when talking about children's rooms (or you may not even consider it in any other room at all, for that matter!)...but just take a look how great these are, and how they so totally work.

The colour is played down blissfully with lots of white and an almost scandinavian simplicity and charm. You can add pops of colour for vibrance...or not. I hope you feel trully inspired by them!
