Halloween pumpkins 2018

Halloween preparations are in full swing!

Just dropping in to share our pumpkins this year. I wanted them to represent our baby’s first Halloween so decided to immortalise us in pumpkins! 😀

They are so simple to make – essential when you have so little free time..

Happy Halloween!

Gdansk

Gdansk

I have these vintage maps at home where I add a pin for every place we visit. It was looking really sparse in Eastern Europe so in an effort to change that and also make our money go further having had to pay couple of grand to fix a water leak and damage made by it, we grabbed some cheap flights to Gdansk, Poland.

Making a DIY Halloween costume for baby

Making a DIY Halloween costume for baby

It’s my baby’s first Halloween! Whilst being under 5 months at Halloween he has no idea what’s happening, mama could not be more excited! So the occasion requires correct attire, no? In an effort not to go too crazy I fashioned this super simple costume that took about an hour to make and cost around £4!

Photography inspiration

Photography inspiration

Okay so this post is a little random and doesn’t really fit with any of the usual categories here, but I had the inspiration for inspiration and wanted to share it! And a new category was born here – “Random” 😀

I enjoy taking photos and as with anything the more you do it the better and quicker you become. I find that sometimes it can be hard to find practise inspiration when you are taking photos “just because”. It can make you feel a bit silly and like you are doing something without a purpose. Never a good feeling right?

I thought I’d collect a few things/places that I have stumbled across that have given me a lot of inspiration, maybe they will help you too?

Making a cactus mobile for baby

It has been very quiet here on the blog side of houseofharlow, but I can assure you our actual House of Harlow has been very busy indeed! We are growing this household and been preparing for a baby! Our bundle of joy is expected to make an entrance anytime now and we have spent the last several months getting ready. I have some projects and things coming up about that preparation process once I get a chance to write them up and photograph things so watch this space.. Speed of that will depend on when lil ‘un decides to make an entrance! 😀

Here is the first one – kicking off with something easy and simple!

Hong Kong and Macau

Hong Kong and Macau

We always thought we’d visit Hong Kong on a stopover to somewhere else and spend couple of days there. But the more we looked into Hong Kong as a destination, it became clear to us that this city was no stopover place. Hong Kong has so much to see and do that it totally deserves a trip of its own!

DIY budget friendly Halloween decorations

DIY budget friendly Halloween decorations

Here in UK Halloween is not that big of a holiday in the sense it is in the US, though it seems to gain popularity each year. I really want to embrace this silly event as there is really not much going on in the autumn side of the year otherwise. It’s perfect to break up the end-of-summer-but-not-yet-Christmas vibe.
