Get a bit of 3D action

Not in the cinema darlings. This isn’t Time Out. But on your walls! Look here.

3D Walldecor Moonscape Panel

Oooooooooh - I love a bit of texture

I saw these Bamboo panels by 3D Walldecor and thought they would look A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. on a wall in a kids space. Playroom? Bedroom? Den? This style (my fave) is called Moonscape.

Spot on!

They are simply glued onto a wall and then, if desired, can be painted with normal wall paint to become any colour – I’m seeing primary colours to get a bit of a LEGO LOOK goin’ on.

Here's another pattern, painted.

So guyzies, let’s start a movement….I’m SOOOOO over the flat wallpaper thing! Panels are 46cm sq and each box contains 10 panels (covering 2.1m sq) and costs £70 plus VAT. Available from B.Brown.

A Choco Cookie Fix

Having had a bout of gastroenteritis and just being allowed to start eating again, bland bland, yawn yawn – I find myself very drawn to food blogs. Right now, I would eat ANYTHING! I’m fantasising about food like men fantasise about…erm. I need SATISFACTION. And I think I found it in yet another great bake by the fabulous Bakerella. Look here….

Bakerella Choc Chip Cookies

I'm having a FOODGASM right now!

Breathe breathe..is that my heavy breathing? The recipe is by Jacques Torres from a US show called The Chew. Well chew on these baby – look what’s inside…

Bakerella Choc Chip Cookies

A chocolate slap right across the face! I need to cool off.

Bakerella will take it from here and show you what you need, and what to do to create these deliciousnesses.

A Creepy Crawly Songbook

Now I can go all cultured on myself you know. My twins are going to be the next  first great identical twin singers. We will show the world that identical twins dont have be be tarts (Cheeky Girls) or look like twats (Jedward). They will be COOOOOOOOL. I’m helping them on their way with this book…The Creepy Crawly Songbook.

A Creepy Crawly Songbook

It’s by Carl Davis a very well known composer/conductor who’s won a BAFTA and collaborated with Paul McCartney and and and, I like it! It features poems and songs all about creepy crawlies. My favourite is is about the one thing in life I dread the most – more than winkles – LICE!
