Don’t Forget the Clocks!

October 29, 2016

For my UK friends, this is just a little reminder that the clocks go back on Saturday night whilst we are all out, which is great as we get an extra hour in bed! So at 2am on this Sunday morning, it goes back to 1am.

Autumn is Here & I’m Ready for Winter

October 27, 2016

After a very boringly mild September (and most of October) we are at last seeing signs of Autumn. I love the colder seasons of Autumn and Winter and so as soon as September arrives I am ready for roaring fires and cosy jumpers – although I usually have to wait a bit longer than that unfortunately!

Anyway, now Autumn is here, the pretty ponies and floral smells don’t seem quite right in the house and so I have been shopping for some more seasonal bits and pieces…

I love The White Company all year round but it is especially fabulous at this time of year with its gorgeous candles, fragrances, throws and cashmere. I love their Winter fragrance range and so bought the large candle and diffuser – my house smells beautifully festive!

How about you – what are you doing to get ready for Autumn and Winter? Or are you one of those still hanging on to summer for dear life?!

Have a fab day and I shall be back soon xx

Jo Malone – Jo Loves

October 11, 2016

The best thing about being ill and staying home (just tonsillitis, nothing serious!) is that you get to watch day time TV! I am sure that novelty would soon wear off but for the few days I was ill last week, I loved it. This Morning in particular is great, with Holly and Phil!

Anyway, whilst I was watching This Morning there was an interview with Jo Malone who was there to promote her new autobiography, My Story. Jo was talking about her life and how her battle with cancer led to her selling Jo Malone to Estee Lauder – a decision she very quickly regretted.

Following the sale Jo has been restricted in terms of what new ventures she could pursue, which is obviously a problem when the brand she sold holds her actual name! She was talking about all of that in the interview, which was so interesting – I am definitely getting the book.

Another thing I found fascinating was when she was talking about her magical sense of smell! She was saying that it is normal for people in her line of work to be able to pick out a specific flower used in a perfume – but she can tell you where it grew and when it was picked (amongst other things!) just by the smell! Crazy!

Happily, Jo does now have a new venture and it is as fabulous as the last – Jo Loves – “an innovative new scent, bath, body and candle collection inspired by the memories and moments in life that she loves.”

Visit the Jo Loves shop on Elizabeth Street, London where Jo had her first job as a florist when she was just 16 years old! No 42 The Flower Shop fragrance is a celebration of that fact…

I have always been a massive Jo Malone fan and always have a candle in the house. Can see myself heading that way with Jo Loves too now!

My Giant Sukhi Coaster

August 19, 2016

Happy Friday! So I have recently received this beautifully handmade pom pom coaster from Sukhi, which I absolutely love. You may have seen the multi coloured Sukhi pom pom rug on one of my recent posts, and so you will already know how gorgeous everything they do is…

Apart from the fact that it all looks so amazing, I love the fact that they are literally handmade in Nepal – where Sukhi means happy! It is all fair trade and the items come directly from the the Nepalese workers – there are no middle men and we have the added satisfaction of knowing that the real artisans benefit from our purchases.

I cannot decide how best to use it, so I have tried out a few ideas – I need you guys to vote! Which is your favourite? I think I like it most under my phone table cactus, but am rather torn…

It is so cute (and so well made) it really will look good wherever I decide to put it. Its actually a good thing that I can chop and change what I do with it, so I can really make the most of it. That said – which is your favourite look?

You can get your own giant coaster (which comes in all sorts of colours) as well as a beautiful range of rugs directly from the Sukhi website.

Have a very fabulous Friday and weekend and I shall be back soon xx

Anyway, here is today’s high five…
