halloween inspired bar cart.
It's October! At last, I can get excited about Hallowe'en without too much judgement, besides the fact that I am 31 years of age and the commercial side of it is really just aimed at children. But I'm never one to be too mature about things and I don't thin...

orange & grey.
 It could be the autumn vibes creeping into my brain already or the fact that neon/bright orange and grey just go really well together anyway but I'm a bit obsessed with this colour combination lately. Whether it's decor, fashion or just images, I'm all ove...

all the cool kids.
Sometimes I struggle to find things for Nancy's room that are not overly floral or pink. I like floral and I like pink but it's often overdone in a girl's bedroom so I nearly always steer clear of pastels, frills and the like. Especially when the bedroom is...

At the moment I have a handful of dresses over at my Etsy store that have me heartbroken. Of course, I'm a fan of everything in the shop because I picked it out myself but these dresses are colourful, flattering and a little bit different which ticks all th...

little nancy vintage.
This little one has inspired me to do a lot of things since she arrived into our lives and I'm sure this won't be the last.  The Turquoise Flamingo shop hasn't really felt complete as long as Little Nancy has been around but at last there's a kids' vintage ...

banana bread with chocolate & hazelnuts.
When life hands you black bananas...make banana bread! This recipe was inspired by the black bananas in our fruit bowl, surplus of eggs in the fridge and the need for something sweet after dinner. Taken from a few recipes online and adding in hazelnuts, lea...

five summer recipes (that seem healthy but they're not really!)
Healthy eating is all about moderation. And while the summer is about eating lots of fresh fruit that's in season, I don't see any harm in throwing in some chocolate, cream or sugar here or there to make things a little easier to swallow. After all, let's b...
