Oliver Bonas sale picks

I really love Oliver Bonas but it’s one of those shops that skipped the North East and went straight from North Yorkshire to Edinburgh, so I don’t get to go in and browse as much as I’d like. They do have a great website though, and the sale is always brilliant. I thought I’d try […]

Etsy prints #1 – lipstick

I bloody love Etsy. It’s like Not on the High Street’s bigger, and less curated, relative and it’s worryingly easy to lose too much time scrolling through thousands of pages. It’s one of my favourite places to buy prints, although it can be hard to narrow down the choices so I’ll be choosing a few […]

My cosy kit

  So, it appears that Winter Has Come when no-one was looking. I love winter to be properly cold so you can either go for a long walk and come home all rosy-cheeked and feeling virtuous, or curl up in an armchair with a book and feel very glad that you’re not outside in the […]

Spring colours for every room

Spring finally seemed to have properly sprung in this part of the world but it wasn’t to be. However, I’m still filled with a desire to fill the Mouse House with bright colours and daffodils, to combat the grey skies. Starting in the kitchen, with this set from Joseph Joseph. It’s wonderfully colourful, with a certain nesting doll quality, and […]

J by Jonathan Ward

I love a good scented candle, especially those which faintly scent the room even when unlit, but they can often be prohibitively expensive. It would be great to be able to regularly spend £40 on Diptyque beauties but it isn’t going to happen, so I was happy to see that Jonathan Ward has a diffusion […]
