I have been invited to take part in the superb campaign by Luxury Flooring – ‘A Week on my Feet’. This has been inspired by the Instagram account ‘I Have This Thing With Floors’ whereby people share photographs of themselves standing on different and interesting flooring.
If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that I like a photo (or several) of my feet and the floor I’m standing on! It’s a bit of a running joke with my Husband and I because he can’t seem to understand why people would want to see my shoes and a floor from that day! But I do love a good shoe & floor photograph – I always have!
As it’s been the summer holidays for the last 4 weeks we have been out and about far more as a family lately and so there’s been less school-run and more fun! The weather has been OK for the last week too and so we’ve been outdoors as much as we can.
This first photograph (below) is us at the park – me waiting on a bench while the twins play on the slide. There have been some LOVELY warm days recently and so we have had such fun being out and about with friends. I have even worn dresses lately to top up my tan from our recent holidays in June to Greece! I love these spotty pumps from Next and have worn them all summer.
This one (below) is me in my hallway standing on our yellow rug, wearing my new shoes and with a new bag from Matalan – in order to go back to school in a few weeks time! The last few weeks of the holidays are now flying by and I can’t believe we will all be back into a routine again and ready for another term of preschool.
This one (below) is taken the day after my Sister’s wedding as I carry my gorgeous bouquet back to the car to go home. I was honoured to be a bridesmaid at my Sister’s special day and loved being part of it. What an amazing day it was! I am wearing some floral loafers that I got from Peacocks a few years ago that are SO comfy.
This week I painted a feature wall in our master bedroom – grey/blue. Which has come out quite dark on the wall! I love it though; it’s so different from my usual white/stark style and feels sumptuous and glamorous. I will share the room makeover on my blog here soon…but for now here’s me standing (barefoot) on a rug opening up the jar of paint.
This last one (below) taken in our house pretty sums up my summer holidays so far – i.e. toys everywhere! But, in all fairness, this summer has been such a different summer to the one I had last year. We really have enjoyed it. There has been fighting & arguing between Harry & Lottie, but on the whole they have been amazing. I feel as though I have been able to do much more with the twins too and I (personally) have been more adventurous this time around – taking them shopping, to a cafe, out to busy places and swimming. I haven’t felt stressed or run down much at all; it’s been such a lovely time. Here I am standing on a new rug that I picked up in the Next Sale for just £20!
So that’s us via feet and flooring! Pretty typical of our busy family life and what we get up to!
Do you like taking photos of flooring and the spot that you are standing in too?
Love, Jess x
