Obsessed with El-Aich Designs

Obsessed with El-Aich Designs

Obsessed with El-Aich Designs I love Instagram, obviously because it’s full of inspirational imagery on a regular basis but also because it introduces me to new brands and independent sellers that I may not have found any other way. Since moving into my flat I have been slowly filling it...

Collective Inspiration – Holly Bantleman

Collective Inspiration – Holly Bantleman.   I was thinking recently how bloody lucky I am to have so many inspiring and frankly wonderful people in my life. But I don’t want to keep them all to myself! That line of thinking quickly drew me to kick off our Collective Indi...

Beauty Advent Calendars for 2015

Beauty Advent Calendars for 2015 Beauty advent calendars have grown massively in popularity over the last couple of years. Gone are the days of chocolate santa’s behind those doors, now we are far more interested in lipsticks and creams every day of December. This year’s selection is seriously impressive, with...
7 Amazing Hanging Baskets from Etsy

7 Amazing Hanging Baskets from Etsy

I’ve developed a bit of an obsession with hanging baskets. Even though I am notoriously known for killing plants quicker than you can say Baby Bio, I have started filling my flat with them. So many in fact that I am running out of space to put them. Until I...

Oeufs Epicées (spicy eggs to me and you)

It’s no secret that I love an egg, and a spicy one at that so I thought I’d share this latest HOT addition to my recipe scrap book! I cannot claim this recipe as my own, it was made for me by my friend Jim at his lovely holiday home (its the only reason I am...
A windy trip to Broadway Market

A windy trip to Broadway Market

This past Saturday my pal and I took a little trip to Broadway Market. And this was special because, if you can believe it, I had never been before! I know, I know, a Londoner not having been to a trendy market. Shocking. But anyway, here are a few snapshots from the day. And if...
Winter is coming: 12 reasons why I love it

Winter is coming: 12 reasons why I love it

Ok, the cold has set in, the evenings (and mornings) are dark and our gas and electric bills are about to fly off the charts from having the central heating on all.the.time…but let’s try and look on the bright side. To cheer myself up this week as the rain came drizzling down, washing the memory...
Feature wallpaper on a budget

Feature wallpaper on a budget

It’s really fun to decorate where you live. But it can get pretty expensive. Especially when you’re looking at big money for just a couple of rolls of feature wallpaper for your living room. So once the offer on my flat had been accepted I created a short list of great wallpaper prints from high-street...
Stay Home Club

Stay Home Club

I have always been a fan of a slogan tee. Add in a soft grey marl jumper and I am literally all yours. I came across Stay Home Club a little while ago (I think on Mademoiselle Robot) and now I am having a real hard time choosing what to purchase first! Here is the...
How to make granola

How to make granola

If you frequent this site, you will know that I LOVE breakfast. Weekend breakfast is an official thing at our house. But having a delicious good breakfast on only a Saturday or a Sunday doesn’t satisfy my obsession. Unfortunately going to work, running our house and looking after a large dog alone during the week...
French pharmacy skin care wishlist

French pharmacy skin care wishlist

I’m off to France tomorrow! Heading to Lille for 5 days of relaxation, red wine and cheese. And maybe, a little trip to a pharmacy or 2 to pick up some French products I’ve had my eye on recently. It’s true that French brands are so much more expensive in England so I am going...
Sofa, so good

Sofa, so good

In what could be described as the mother of all #firstworldproblems, I am finding it really hard to pick a sofa for my new place. I have been lusting after the above since I first started looking for sofa living room ideas. It’s the Halston 3 seater corner sofa from Made.com. I love the colour and I...
Pasta making with Quorn

Pasta making with Quorn

A little while ago now, my delightful blog partner and I headed to Old Street for an evening of Italian cooking at The Underground Cookery School, thanks to the lovely folks at Quorn. We were promised an evening of education, good food and a few drinks; they definitely didn’t dissapoint. I’d never actually made pasta...

Currently Coveting: Mahabis

It’s getting colder, the sun is setting sooner. I can’t help but feel that autumn is truly on it’s way, we even had a log fire last weekend, even though its only late August.   Of an evening, there are two things I want to do when I walk in through the front door, after...
Fizz o'Clock

Fizz o’Clock

Remember the summer we all diced cucumber and strawberries and grew mint in our window boxes just in case we were ever to experience a Pimms emergency?  This was followed swiftly by the Gin Age, in which we went to Gin Stock, scoured the supermarket to find THE TONIC, and decorated our glasses with anything...
Huevos Picantes

Huevos Picantes

This lovely dish (spicy eggs) is a firm favourite Sunday breakfast in our house. I’m not sure if it’s because it has chorizo in it, or if it’s because it legitimately allows us to have guacamole before lunchtime. Maybe it’s just down to the cheese (God I love cheese). Anyway, its easy and quick-ish to...
