British Imports

    Two cookie- ahem- biscuit, favourites- jammy dodgers (small round shortbread cookies with jam in the middle) and jaffa cakes (sponge cake, orange jam covered in chocolate). My favourite London memory, however, is the indelible voice of the tube telling you to “mind the gap”.

      Yum Carly. They sound delish! Sister hasn’t even landed yet, but I’m already craving them. I will tell her to go test them out for me.

    Hi Camila, what an appropriate blog entry – it just hit my inbox! I have spent all morning researching English prints, specifically prints by Henry Alken – hunting prints. I found one already framed at Goodwill a couple of weeks ago and would like another one, but I’m having a hard time locating one that is not so expensive? Any tips would be greatly appreciated 🙂
    As for your sis – what an incredible experience – you must be so proud of her – I can not wait to see what sort of inspiration you glean from her new life.
    All the best to you and baby sis 🙂

    Are you honestly telling me they don’t do jaffa cakes across the pond?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    Tell your sister to look out for the new Scream Egg being launched by Cadbury’s in time for Halloween.

    Hope she has a great time in London and gets to visit all the corners of our lil old island whislt she’s here

    Hi Camilla – I can sympathise. My sister left for London about a month ago – and she’s going for two years. Thank goodness that in this digital age, we have email and text and skype. I miss her so much already.

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
