Real Families: A Day at Kew Gardens by Schryver Photo


real families-2

Happy Friday to you all! I hope this lovely Friday finds you well and you are looking forward to the weekend. Today on Boho Life we are back with our family feature and we have some lovely images from Schryver Photography to show you all today. What beautiful images and thank you to Schryver Photo for sharing them with us today.

‘Katy and Alex chose to have their family photo shoot in Kew Gardens in London, a location where they love to spend time as a family with their beautiful baby son, Rocco. The shoot took place back on a hot, sunny day back in July – summer feels like so long ago now..!’

A few words from Helen the Photographer…..

After a quick coffee and a chat to get to know each other a little bit, we headed to the large palm house for some shots in amongst the foliage. It was boiling hot in there so we didn’t stay long, but it was worth it to get the shots of Rocco in amongst the palms, and then of him enjoying a crawl about on the lovely cool floor. We spent the rest of the time exploring the gardens, finding some gorgeous backdrops including waterfalls, huuuge trees and tons of brightly coloured flowers. We had a break for lunch – the light in the orangery cafe was pretty amazing so I couldn’t resist getting a few shots of Rocco in there too! (more…)

Thursday has arrived, yay! one step closer to the weekend! Today we are back with our regular travel feature and today it’s the turn of well seasoned travelers, Bohemium weddings. Last time we caught up with them they shared with us their wonderful trip to Portugal, today they are taking us to Iceland, and the images are truly amazing!  Iceland is one place that I really do want to visit, it looks truly beautiful and peaceful. Bohemium Weddings have captured it perfectly!

I’ll pass you over to Michael from Bohemain Weddings…….

We went to Iceland as part of a 30th Birthday trip in April. We like carving our own path and creating our own adventure so chose to hire a camper for a week as opposed to going with an organised tour. We hired a large high top camper from Happy campers.

We headed straight to Vik whilst the weather was good to discover our first black beach! With the beautiful basalt stacks out to sea and the backdrop of the small village of Vik and cliffs. We spent our first night wild camping by ourselves and had little sleep as it was very windy! However in the morning we decided to continue east and travel the entire south coast as far as Hofn as the weather was glorious and sunny. (more…)

My Favourite Awards Dresses From This Season


My favourite awards dresses

It’s that time of year again, its awards season, so today I thought I would share with you my favourite outfits from this years red carpet. I ran this feature last year so I decided that I’d make it an annual thing.

I am a big film and music fan, so I jut love awards season, I love to see who has won what and also who wore what! I’m not into bashing people for their choice of outfit, or ask who’s wearing what and taking the whole thing way to seriously, I’m just here to pay tribute to those lovely frocks and share with you my favs.

You can see my full awards dresses pinterest board HERE.

Real Food: Boho’s Bites – February


Boho's Bites

Happy Monday to you and welcome to another edition of Boho’s Bites. A simple little feature where I share with you where I have eaten out each month. If you follow me on Instagram you will know that I love going out for dinner and I love taking photos of my food , so I thought why not share my food adventures with you.

It’s been a short month but I still manged to get out and about, with Dexter in tow most of the time. He really is a good baby and we have taken him out since he was brand new, because of this he is now very sociable and very well-behaved when we go out, which makes life so much easier. In fact I’d say I go out much more now we have Dexter than before he was born. By the look of this months photos it is the month of the burger, I do love a burger though, but it has to be chicken or veggie though, no red meat for me!

Here is where I have eaten out and about during February……

Recipe Love: Spicy Chicken and Pomegranate Wraps


recipe love

It’s Friday! I hope you are well and have had a great week. Do you have any plans for the weekend? I have had such a busy old week. Paul is working away so I have been left to hold the fort. Running a business, blogging while listening to a 5 year old sing Frozen songs can be quite tricky! You know, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Life is so very busy but so much fun!

Today I am pleased to welcome Chloe from the Lovliest Food back to the blog. Chloe always shares the most amazing recipes with our Life readers. This recipe especially looks so tasty, easy to make and it is even a healthy! You really should check out The Lovliest Food Blog.  There are some amazing recipes on there and all are so very easy to follow!

Spicy Chicken and Pomegranate Wraps

Chicken wraps

I’ll pass you over to Chloe…..

At the beginning of the year I posted 30 ways to be healthier in 2015 and challenged my readers to do as many as they could during January. We did it at home too so we’ve been cooking lighter, healthier and trying a few different things.

These spicy chicken and pomegranate wraps have been a favourite as they’re nice and simple for mid-week and they’ve been devoured several times by hungry guests!

To make it for 4 you will need:

Ingredients : (Will make 4)

  • 2 tbsp ras el hanout*
  • Olive oil
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 4 flour tortilla wraps
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 pomegranate
  • Rocket or other salad leaves
  • 1 small bunch of mint leaves, chopped
  • 400g Greek yoghurt
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • 2 tbsp sumac*
  • A sprinkling of grated cheese

*Ras-el-hanout is a really tasty Moroccan spice blend that you can buy as a dry spice mix or in jars mixed with a little oil. It’s also great for adding flavour to vegetable soups so worth purchasing and experimenting with.
* Sumac which is a middle eastern spice which adds a nice lemony taste to the yoghurt sauce, you can substitute it for the zest of ½ a lemon, although it’s not quite the same! (more…)

Agnes and Norman – 2015 Shoe Collection


Agnes and Norman

When Kelly H first send me this Agnes and Norman – 2015 Collection to put together for Boho Life today I initially squealed. I am a HUGE fan of Agnes and Norman. I have 2 pairs myself and they are the best shoes ever! The 2015 collection is stunning. What I love most about Agnes and Norman is that their designs are totally unique and they match with any type of outfit. I know when I put my Agnes and Norman shoes on I feel like a million dollars. I am so excited to have a good look at this collection and hope that come summer I will be able to get a brand new pair myself.

I know all you Boho Life readers will love this Post. ENJOY!…

Untitled 2015 Collection

Introducing the deliciously unique new collection from agnes & norman. The distinctive label, now synonymous with vintage inspired style, strikes again, with this divine selection of contemporary classics.

For the girls -  there are two key looks- the first is signature agnes & norman, with antique effect leathers in a washed colour palette of earthy naturals, soft greys and classic darks, shoes you could have discovered in your grandma’s closet. The second look takes a new direction- an explosion of candy stripe pastels, timeless off-white and rich sea-green on retro points and heels.

For the boys - it’s all about putting a twist on tradition, with classic styles updated in rich burnished leathers and laid back suede, again with two distinct looks. For the discerning gent about town there are high shine leathers and sleek Italian inspired silhouettes- wear with a striped sock for maximum impact. The classic brogue is given some attention this season, with two tone leather and suede, burnished tan and high shine bordo to really stand out from the crowd. For an effortless off duty look, this season’s relaxed suede styles are perfect with jeans, just enough to look stylishly individual.
