I guess there has to be a plus side to having your parents living in another country. For me one of the bonuses of my mum being in France is getting my hands on copies of "Marie Claire idees" and with my sister returning from a holiday there the other day it means I get to have a flick through the summer issue.
And as ever it's full of lot's of inspiration
Gorgeous uses of colour and fabrics
I especially love the little girls dress.
What about this fish for an idea of what to do with your bottle tops!
This picture has given me lots of ideas of how to make the map on the wall in the boys room more inspiring!!
And I want the globes,
and love these badges!
Even the recipes make me want to get baking,
I've got plenty of courgettes I could use in this courgette and goat cheese bread,
But enough of this relaxing, flicking through magazines, I have a boys uniform that needs naming ready for the start of school on Monday!
If like me you love magazines, you may be interested in the magazine swap going on over at Troc, Broc and Recup, you have until September the 10th to sign up to what looks like a great simple enjoyable swap.
I can't wait to see what magazine I end up with!
