It’s been nearly 2 years since we did the kitchen...and we’ve still not quite finished it off yet, how we’ve survived this long without a splash back with the amount of cooking we do, I do not know!
Anyway, I’d known I’d wanted a blue kitchen for about 2 years prior but other decisions like what tiles to go for, weren’t such easy choices to commit to. Instead we decided to not rush it, but then soon became used to the minimal backdrop...one thing I have been wanting to add for a while though are some shelves with plants - another thing we’d been lazily putting off. So yesterday morning whilst sipping my oolong tea, I looked at the space and felt it was finally time to get back into some kitchen diy. I did a swift bit of planning (swipe right for my wonderful planning illustration 😂) and then dragged a reluctant Damien to Ikea to get some shelves and plants. 3 hours and a whole boot full of plants later, and we’d left with just what we needed. .
.
Now this morning’s tasks will consist of shelf building and plant arranging. Oh the joys of adult life...and I’m not even being sarcastic, I love this stuff. Happy Sunday! 🤓😂🌿🌱🌴🌳💚 Anyone else d.I.Y’ing this fine Sunday morning? ☀️#SamiosHome

A Sunday self portrait, making the most of the very last of today’s light...Today has been spent shooting and editing and it feels good to have gotten ahead on some work for the week to come. Now it’s time to cosy up on the sofa and watch a bit of Netflix before having an early night, which I’m so excited for! We had friends round both nights this weekend and whilst I love entertaining, I’ve gotta say I do still look forward to a cosy Sunday evening on the sofa and a good old fashioned early night. who’s with me? 👵🏽 Hope you’re having a happy Sunday whatever you’ve been up to. #SamiosSelfPortraits

Sometimes when silly things stress me out I have to tell myself ‘it’s not that deep’, in order to readdress the situation.  This isn’t about to be a deep caption or anything, that’s just what sprung to mind after I’d created this image in a image, in an image, in an image, in an image, in an image...okay you get the drift...it’s sort of a #SamiosSelfPortraits meets #SamiosStopMotion whatever you want to call it. .
.
Anyway, speaking of things which are slightly deeper...this morning I listened to Russell Brand’s Under The Skin podcast episode with Wim Hof. If you listen to one podcast this week I’d really recommend you give that one a listen, that’s if you’re interested in the power of the mind and all that good stuff. Wim Hof is the guy that you will have likely seen on the internet running through ice in shorts seemingly unfazed (yeah, that guy). He’s actually really fascinating to listen to and I love how he speaks with so much passion. Immediately after I’d finished listening to it I felt inspired to try out one of Hof’s breathing techniques and I’m already hooked. I’m going to try and start implementing it into my morning routine. It’s sort of like a meditation but for me it felt on a deeper level. I’ll let you check that one out and the podcast yourself, but long story short, it made for a very good start to my day! Hope you’re having a good Thursday! ✨#samiosvideos

Getting my 97p’s worth out of these reduced Chrysanthemums that I picked up in Tesco on Friday...this afternoon whilst the lighting was just right, as the clouds shifted and the sun seeped in though the blinds, I decided to snap a quick self portrait. Not bad going for what has been a mostly grey and cloudy day, but I’m never one to pass up a ‘perfect lighting’ opportunity...Now I’m imagining a whole fro of flowers, as if you cover half of my head this sort of looks like a fabulous floral fro, and I have to say I’m rather fond of it. 💐✨ #SamiosSelfPortraits

I often have lots of little (and sometimes big) stop motion ideas that pop into my head. I don’t always get chance to bring them to life because 1, they can take a while, and 2, I often tell myself work needs to take priority over the time consuming, ‘just for fun’ creative stuff I like to do. But this year I’ve told myself I want to make more time for personal projects, big and small, even the time consuming ones and the little, ‘just for fun’ ones, like this. #SamiosStopMotion .

Lip colours in order:
1. @limecrimemakeup Plushies shade Tea.
2. Same as above but in shade Jam.
3. @sleekmakeup Matte Me in shade Birthday suit.
My 3 current faves. .

The scarfs are both vintage.

Added a couple of new @fredperry pieces to my wardrobe the other day, and I’ve just uploaded a video all about ways to style them. The link is in my bio if you fancy a watch. #SamiosSelfPortraits

Had a fun afternoon in the sun today with @daleydiary. We basically did a walking tour of the city and ventured everywhere from Hatch (on Oxford Road), to Castlefield, to The Northern Quarter, with the highlight of the afternoon being the carrot cake doughnuts we got from from @siopshop...My two favourite sweet treats are carrot cake and doughnuts, so to find such a delectable creation which combines the two, is well, a match made in heaven! 🤤

One of my fave self portraits, which I featured in a recent blog post. I’m wearing this dress today actually, as the sun is shining in Manchester...no doubt there’ll be plenty of people in full on summer attire today due to a tiny bit of sun, true Brit style.  Speaking of something very British, I was just on the tram and an old man starting yelling at another man for having his bag on the seat (it wasn’t a big deal as there were plenty of other seats available), anyway, after the other man argued back, the old man finished his piece by saying ‘well you’re a silly sausage’...A SILLY SAUSAGE! If that’s not the most British thing to say in an argument then I don’t know what it! 🤣🤣🤣 anyway, Happy Saturday! #SamiosSelfPortraits
