Caption block, you suck. Trying to come up with a collection of words that will work together to become a witty, smart and interesting caption is bloody tough - don’t you think? It’s especially hard when nothing exciting has happened since my last post yesterday. So, here’s me and Elvis just lying on the sofa chilling. He’s excited to go for a walk and I’m excited to see Russell Brand tomorrow night. And that’s it.
mood 🛁🕯 what do you do to relax? ☁️
During the snow on Sunday @butterwakefield and I were potting bulbs in her kitchen, drinking ginger tea and unsticking bits of carpet moss. We tucked in irises and paperwhites, tulips and grape hyacinth. Afternoons rarely get any lovelier. (Special thanks to Louise @w6gardencentre, who kindly re-housed several potted mints when I spied some tubs in the back of a greenhouse, and wanted to buy them for my tulips).
What you need at the end of a long, cold, wet Monday is to see the lights shining out from a cosy pub. Am I right? 💫❄️
One from yesterday’s insane trip into central London to do Christmas shopping. Except the snow seemed to keep lots of people away so it was actually quite pleasant!
I love Iris, do you??! She is the style icon we all want to be when we're older and more mature! :D And I agree, dressing should be fun! I don't know that I"m as bold as Iris (okay, I know I am not) but still love to dress and make it fun! That's why I love my job and getting dressed every day! #makeitfun#sparkletherapy#accessorize#sparkle#shine#esbedesigns
I know I really *should* be focusing on listing as many items as possible for last minute holiday shoppers to snap up, but instead I spent the afternoon organizing my studio shelves. This is my first holiday season working in my studio (not from a crowded corner of my small brooklyn apartment) and in my rush to post all of my holiday items my studio had become unworkably cluttered. Even though I have so many amazing things that won’t make it to the site in time for Christmas I’m choosing to be ok with that. This newly organized space is helping me feel ready for a prosperous 2018!
Chatting about all things Christmas on the blog this month. More DIY’s coming soon! 👩🏼🍳🎄✨ #thrivewhereplanted pc: @kearies
It's a scorcher 🌞in Melbourne town today, and I find looking at pictures of lovely swimming pools makes me feel better about the heat!
I love this one from our Kew house. A fab collaboration we did with @adiecourtney architects & landscape by @cycaslandscapedesign
Can you tell which part of this is MY influence??!! 💘
I’ve been quiet around here lately, but for a good reason! I’m incredibly excited to be 14 weeks pregnant, and to share the news with you all 😊 Our little baby girl (yay, girl!!!) will be joining us in June 💕 It’s been a very difficult few years with trying to conceive, two miscarriages, and a bunch of doctor visits, but it has made us all the more grateful and amazed by this experience. It is truly amazing what the body can do 😱
Confident Life will be sticking around and won’t turn into a pregnancy-fest. But I can’t say there won’t be some bump pictures popping up here and there!
Feels like Santa’s workshop over here.🎅🏻🎄🎁⠀
Been running around like a crazy lady trying to get all my Christmas shopping and wrapping done before family comes in town THIS week. 😬 Spent my day in my fox pjs, watching Force Awakens whole attempting to not just stuff all the presents in bags. 😂🤦🏻♀️⠀
Loved the Hearth and Hand wrapping paper over @target ! (It has grids on the inside for easy cutting for horrible wrappers like me! 🙌🏻❤️)

•What does “Great Coffee, Greater Good” actually mean??•
For every bag of coffee bought, $1 goes to the Greater Good Fund, which helps the people of San Juan La Laguna & surrounding areas in Guatemala.
It’s why we do, what we do. 💙

This photo is one of my favourite. Why? Because of the neutral and soft colours and the simplicity in it. The light of the Sun is like magic if you know how to use it. An ordinary bush and weed that from any other angle looks ugly turned out to be so beautiful. Perspective means everything.
“Frosty windows and glistening streets are winter’s homecoming treat to us. Like wonder at first sight, we smile upon opening the blinds and call out to each family member to look outside. And for a moment, we’re all children again as we enter into the delights of God.” // A little excerpt from my winter reflection on dianamegan.com/blog ❄️💕
I hope you enjoy the post (#linkinbio !) + I’d love to know: What’s God stirring in your heart this winter season? Where do you see His goodness today?
Heute gabs mal etwas Licht zur Abwechslung. Gute Nacht!
So fun getting to play around with a play on words this season 👶🏼❤️ I love sending snail mail and since I can’t send to all of you, I’m sending you the love now ☺️
Speaking of snail mail, Drew & I are sending more than cards this season. Something we truly love to our core is giving back when the opportunity arises. In the NFL there are lots of wonderful opportunities to feed the hungry, visit children’s hospitals and so much more. Children truly touch both of our hearts and that is where we love to devote most of our effort. This time of year we always sponsor a family who is beyond deserving and buy a child their Christmas wish list. Whether they are swamped with medical bills, or whatever their situation may be. I’m not sharing this to get praise, I’m sharing this to say, if you have the extra means to do so and it will only put a small difference in your pocket and put a big difference in their hearts, do it. If you are looking for a family to help, I can help you find the proper outlets to find the right family for you.
