I’m a day late, but better late than never. John Lewis have an event this month where every day they have an exclusive offer, for one day only. Today is £20 off on a gorgeous industrial style red radio clock (good for those of you who got up late the other day when you forgot … Continue reading

Store of the Week: Zara Home

It’s hard to know where to look when you know what you need, whether it be a lamp for reading in the living room or a tea caddy for the kitchen, so I thought I would do a weekly post about my favourite, and newly found, stores for all your home needs. They might be online … Continue reading

Weekly Treat

  Little additions make all the difference. I think I might treat myself to another fancy jar for bits and bobs in the bedroom and bathroom. This one is perfect for my cotton wool balls! Better than the plastic bag they come in! Cotton Wool Jar, £6.95, Dotcomgiftshop

Wait a minute Mr Postman!

I want to go to… Whitstable

About a year ago, my boyfriend and I took a bus into Whitstable from his student accommodation at Kent University.

I love tin boxes!

I’m falling in love with tin boxes, they are my new thing. I have a few, but my favourite is definitely my Queens Coronation tin that I found in a little second hand and craft shop. It’s battered but I think that only adds to the charm! Keep special bits and pieces inside: letters, jewellery, … Continue reading

Invest in classic pieces that will last you a lifetime

Someone recently said to me of plywood chairs (pictured) ‘Why on Earth would anyone pay so much money for a piece of wood? I see prices for those in the West End that are ridiculous. They’re so overpriced.’ My answer: ‘Because they will stand the test of time and pay for themselves.’ I’ll let you … Continue reading
