New year, new homeware

New year, new homeware

I feel as if people are split into two categories in January: those who are still in mourning for their Christmas tree and tinsel, and those who are eagerly embracing the joys of a new year. (I might actually fall into a third category, those who want to just go back to bed until it […]

Gift guide: £50 and up

Luxury gift guide: £50 and up

My final gift guide is all about the ‘luxury’ items. Everyone has a different concept of what ‘luxury’ means: there are luxury bloggers/vloggers who wouldn’t dream of featuring a bag that costs less than £600, whereas other people would baulk at spending £50 on a candle – in my opinion,  both of these views are fine, […]

Gift guide: under £15

Gift guide: under £15

I generally dislike Christmas being everywhere until December but 2016 has been such a shitstorm that I thought I’d get started on gift guides earlier this year. I’ve always loved looking through gift lists, even if the items wouldn’t make it onto my personal wishlist – maybe it’s the magpie in me, that just likes […]

5 happy happenings #21

5 happy happenings #21

Autumn makes me so happy. Sometimes it seems that I’m this time of year’s version of Buddy the Elf – Autumn’s biggest cheerleader. I love the changing leaves, the cooler temperatures, the fact that it’s my birthday in October, and the abundance of hot chocolate. It’s also the time of year that work quietens down for […]

Etsy prints #3 – Naps

  We’ve had lipstick and coffee so I thought the third instalment of my Etsy series should be about another integral part of my life: naps. I bloody love a good nap; it might be because I don’t sleep very well at night, kept awake by a whirring brain, but I’m always able to drop off […]

Flamingo Candles Espresso jar candle

Everyone seems to be thrilled that Autumn is approaching rapidly and I’m no different. Autumn is about chunky knitwear, berry lipstick, leather boots, blankets, and candles – and I have a candle that I’ve been dying to burn for months. I bought the Espresso jar candle when Flamingo Candles had a half-price sale earlier in […]

August shopping list

Jo Malone Peony and Moss Charity Candle

I really should start calling this my monthly wishlist because if I always bought everything on it, I’d be permanently broke and our honeymoon would remain out of reach forever (rather than just several years). Still, it’s good to know what I actually want, rather than the things I pick up on a whim when I’m […]

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 […]
