a glimmer into the life of a mum who loves fashion, decor and prosecco

Go bananas!

I fell in love with the banana-leaf print HARD when I first saw it! It adds so much color and brightness to any room it is in.  I have used it in numerous spots around my home (throw pillows, bench cushions, etc) and in some friends home projects I have done.  

And the best part is that it goes with almost everything and can be used anywhere!! Blues, patterns, pinks, outdoor furniture, kitchen accents . . . you name it, it can be mixed in!

Look at some of these fabulous uses . . . from small accents to full-blown banana-leaf rooms! 

One of my favorite uses for it is outdoors! Reminds me of the 
iconic Beverly Hills Hotel and vacation-vibes
I love the statement that it makes in a small space like a powder room or laundry room!! Would make doing laundry a whole lot more fun!

These art prints are inexpensive and give any room an instant pick-me-up

Easy way to add a "wow" factor to a pretty neutral bedroom palette! 

 Napkins! I love how easy this is to brighten up any summer or spring table setting! I may have to make some of these for myself!

And holy-bananas how amazing is this TV room!!!

I thought I would share a few pieces that you could buy to incorporate this wonderful pattern into your home  . . . . I am in love with this candle . . .  I have already ordered two!


Large scale prints are a fantastic and relatively inexpensive way to cover a large wall space in an office or living room or do a small print in a bathroom or entryway.



Throw pillows are a fabulous way to add the color and wow factor without the full-room commitment


Or how about a little bit of leaf in your purse!

Prime Beauty

I left of a few of my favorite Amazon beauty/health finds out of last weeks Amazon post because I thought I would do a post on just those items.

I can't say enough about this stuff (here).  Magnesium is a necessity for your body and is responsible for hundreds of chemical reactions in our bodies.  It lowers blood pressure, lowers the risk of getting diabetes, it helps with muscle and nerve function, steadies your heart rate, assists in immune system function and works in bone health.  And in women it lowers premenstrual symptoms and osteoporosis risk.  


I have become addicted to my TONGUE SCRAPER!  Tongue scraping, is an an oral hygiene practice that removes bacteria, food debris, fungi, toxins, and dead cells from the surface of the tongue. 

 This set is awesome (here)

I am completely obsessed and in love with this fantastic sunscreen oil (spf 50) . . . It smells beautiful, feels amazing and gets absorbed into your skin quickly.  It does not make your face feel oily just wonderfully silky!  I love the Supergoop product line for sunscreen!

Another thing I have added to my skincare regimen is this Brightening Vitamin C serum!!! It too smells wonderful and I have been getting so many compliments since I started using it about how glowy my skin look!
