Win a 10 day Shopping Spree at Achica worth £5,000

Lifestyle News August 29, 2012

While we've been checking out this luxury lifestyle store this entire summer for kitchen tips and solutions to decorating dilemmas, we're particularly excited to hop on over to Achica today. With products from La Cafetiere and Sheridan Bed Linen going on sale and an exclusive promotion on Joujou charms this Friday, there's lots not to be missed. As part of their Summer of Inspiration, ShopStyle has picked out the hottest fashion trends for this season with exclusive styling tips. We just loved the Gold Classic French Press from La Cafeteria, so much so that we designed an entire collection around it and this elegant J.Mendel dress (£1,269). The leather accent, flattering drape and sumptous plum colour is perfect for this Autumn. To find out how we styled it and a little lifestyle fun, check out Achica today.

You can even win a 10 day £5000 Shopping Spree by sharing what inspires you here, whether it is your kitchen essentials (perhaps a French Press?), an Olympic Athlete or a family member you admire. Don't miss out!

What inspires me the most is my daughter. She's coming up to 3 years old and was diagnosed last year with severe learning disabilities, autism and sensory problems. In spite of this she's the happiest child I know. She cannot communicate which must be so frustrating for her but she doesn't let it hold her back, she's so full of life and so happy, when I'm having a bad day just looking at her cheers me up and makes me think that if she can be happy with all the problems she will face in her life then I can certainly be happy !

Beauty comes from the inside BEFORE it shows on the OUTSIDE. Its once you learn this value in life that that you start to learn the value yourself, others and things around you.

My kids inspire me.... when one of them tells me I'm pretty it inspires me to put on my make up and wear something nice, when my garden overwhelms me I weed it because they want to play in it and grow their own veg, and when my house is a mess I tidy it and keep it looking good because THEY deserve a wonderful place to live.

I find inspiration everywhere. I find it in textiles, the colours of nature, in feeling the kick of my unborn baby, in my son's laughter (even if it stems from someone else's misfortune), in hearing the door open and my husband come home...all these little things inspire me to make life better, to be kind, to try new challenges, every day.

My greatest inspiration in life is music. It lifts me when I'm down, it pushes me forward when I'm flagging, it calms me when I'm angry and, perhaps best of all, when I can't find the words that sufficiently express how much I love someone, the right song does it for me :)

Winston Churchill and his many speeches inspire me in most of what I do: "Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts." and "What is the use of living, if it be not to strive for noble causes and to make this muddled world a better place for those who will live in it after we are gone?"
