The New and Improved Splendid Things

So I lied in my last post.   That post was in March.  I am finally sitting down to write after 4 months.  The blog has had a makeover and our family gained a new addition!

Our beautiful boy Henry Thomas Culbert was born on the 11th of May.  He is both a spitting image of his brother and completely different and his own little person.

We are besotted.  And we are complete.

He had a bit of a bumpy start to life but is now thriving and nice and chubby just the way I like.

So now that we are in the beginning of a routine, I can put a bit more focus on this neglected old space.  I have planned a whole new direction for this blog.  There will still be family updates.  Sharing what we are up to, where we are going.  Our love of travel.  But I also really want to use it to share my love of interiors, fashion and what I do for a living, Styling.  Splendidly Styled is still in it’s infancy but please watch this space for updates 🙂

Welcome back if you have been following The Splendid Things and Welcome if you are just visiting for the first time.

I can’t wait to share my passions with you

Love Lil xx

Changing It Up

Are you a dabbler? I am.  Terrible thing this dabbling.  Trying to put your hand in too many pots.  Trying to do all the things.  I’m the kind of dabbler that is never happy with what I am doing, what I have or what I want to do.  I get the itch.  The itch of change.  
I gotta learn how to stop scratching the itch.  I scratched it a bit this morning and changed the whole look of the blog.  I have left this place dormant while I’ve been busy being a mum, a wife and a colleague. I missed it.  A lot.  
So, I thought that I would give the Splendid Things a bit of a face lift.  A bit of sparkle, cause isn’t that what being Splendid is all about?

Hope you like the change and I promise to be here more often. 

Love the Dabbler, Lil xx
