How I clean my white sneakers

As part of the process in building a slow fashion, sustainable wardrobe, it’s also important to take care of shoes so that they last the test of time, without having to buy a new pair every couple of months or so because of damage or dirt. When King Ranch Saddle Shop asked how I cared for my leather shoes, I thought I’d share how I keep my favourite white sneakers clean and protected.

These chic desktops and home offices will inspire you to create the perfect workspace.:

Currently my home office is a piece of wood next to the kids’ play area. The table is basically a wooden plank covered in colourful duct tape laid across two side drawers, with a laptop, months-old magazines, children’s toys, husband’s wallet, keys, and paperwork, and the odd dirty coffee cup. Sometimes the home office is in front of the TV as hubby and I catch up on shows as we multitask. A kid’s IKEA corkboard adorns the wall with receipts and photos. When I don’t have two kids with grubby hands smearing the table top and wrestling to watch Pocoyo on the laptop I’ll have a more coordinated workspace.

Home inspo: play room

The play area in our home used to be our TV room so it’s now a place where the kiddos can play with their 1000 toys (and occasionally watch TV if mummy is feeling particularly frazzled), as well as where hubster and I retire after the bedtime battle. One day I’d like to have the two rooms separate as it isn’t particularly relaxing when you have to step over an incomplete puzzle strewn across the floor, and end up sitting on Thomas the Tank Engine that’s been left on the sofa. I know the play area will need to evolve over time with the kids so it needs to be a flexible space where toys can be interchanged easily as well as furniture added or removed depending on their interests. Right now with two kids under three it’s a bit of a free for all but it also means the kids are self-accessing their toys and playing without (too much) restriction. If only I wasn’t the usual suspect when it comes time to tea parties…
