Well I Love Mondays is back, and if you are new to the blog, let me explain what it’s all about.
On a Monday, I publish a blog post, that includes some of the things that we love at The Ana Mum Diary. I am trying to help get rid the Monday blues with beautiful things. I will virtual shop for your every need. Perhaps introducing you to something that you haven’t ever seen or place you haven’t been to before. You are in good hands, so sit back and grab yourself a cuppa.
Here in Nottingham there has been more autumnal sunshine over the weekend. I’ve been anticipating spring (crazy I know) and buying lots of bulbs ready to plant this week. I have also been making plans to declutter both of the my girls bedroom, calling it an autumnal clutter busting clean! I haven’t been neglecting looking online though, I have been looking at some lovely things to spring new life into children’s bedrooms. Here is what I have found from Design Vintage.
I absolutely love these vintage 7up crates from Design Vintage. priced at £35, I am sure they would fantastic as storage in a child’s room, practical but effortless style. They also have Pepsi and Dr Pepper designs available.
Or how about this bedding. I am really loving the trend that is still around from last year, of animal images on fabric. This has been brought bang up to date with the subtle pink colour. It is priced at £44, and is suitable for a cotbed sized bed. With a matching cushion/pillow cover with the definition of a deer in English on one side and Danish on the other.
Finally here is a vintage child’s metal desk from France. A beautifully aged metal frame and solid wood top, is a steal at £75.
So what do you think of my I Love Monday finds this week? Are you, like me planning de-cluttering, now the children are back at school?
Thank you for reading
I thought I would have a go at making some school gate style mood boards on The Ana Mum Diary blog. So here is my first, in hopefully a collection, as the seasons progress.
This post comes with huge thanks to Jen from Love Chic Living, who wrote a fantastic post, explaining how to make a polyvore mood board, using a ‘clip it to polyvore’ button on your tool bar.
I love the idea, that as I see things that I like whilst on the internet, I can clip them to my account, to make a mood board later with them. What a fantastic idea, I think this may revolutionise the way I shop and blog!
I love Panache underwear!
I love the retro feel to Panache, the attention to detail and the finish of the Lingerie. Panache make beautiful underwear that lasts, providing fantastic support, but making sure you both look and feel gorgeous too! Panache is a leading D plus lingerie specialist that has an amazing reputation based on 3 core values:
Fit, Support & Comfort.
Panache’s products are continually improved and developed to ensure that the company leads both in terms of fit and quality, (I can completely vouch for this) as well as sourcing of the most beautiful fabrics and keeping a keen eye on production. They move quickly and are very style and fashion savvy, and that’s what I want, and I think what most women want. To look pretty and feminine, and dare I say sexy in their underwear. To have a strong sense of style and fashion but most importantly the fit needs to be right!
Tall Dad and I are going away over night as a Valentines treat, but not until the end of the month so this was a really lovely surprise to receive from Panache. A set of lingerie from the Cleo range, a Valentines DVD and Agent Provocateur massage oil, and I love all three of them!
The Cleo Range :
Pick and mix up your underwear drawer with the new range of D-J cup lingerie from Cleo. Fabulous fit, shape boosting support and delicious comfort. All wrapped up in a range of completely gorgeous designs that will leave you looking and feeling wonderful.
I love this set of Lingerie and the fit is amazing! I also wear lots of navy, so I think this set will look great underneath that. In fact I am so thrilled with the fit, that I very nearly posted a photograph of me wearing them…almost as I then realised I was too shy to actually do it.
So a huge thank you to Panache for my lovely gifts, I cant wait to wear this sent of Lingerie and my Valentines wish, is to have some time with my Hubby to enjoy them!
Thank you for reading
This week I wanted to look at some of the vintage inspired things that I love.
First up is The Cambridge Satchel Company, It may sound silly, but I crave to own one of their satchels, I’ve even had dreams about it! It would be hard decision between:
The Batchel, (£113) a satchel with the addition of a top handle. In an unusual and gorgeous combination of brown and navy.
Or a more traditional satchel (the 15″ is £84) this would make a great handbag, or case to put your laptop in .
Next up is a dress. I love this one from Monsoon, the Orange Capri Dress (reduced from £50 to £30) it has a 1940′s feel to it I think, and its in the sale, bonus!
Jewellery : a twist on the ID from the fabulous Chambers and Beau, the Luxe Leather Maxi ID friendship wrap (£90) I love the idea of adding something this luxurious and personal to an outfit, and these ID bracelets really do put a modern twist on the idea.
I think I’ve inadvertently chosen a complete outfit there, oops, sorry Tall Dad!
So these are the items I love, what do you think?
