Delightful Rugs

July 7, 2016

For years I have only ever looked at plain (usually white or ivory) rugs for my house – boring I know, and also not very practical with every speck of dirt showing up on them. I have been thinking about changing my big ivory living room rug for something with a bit more colour and after seeing this below pic on the Becki Owens website (she is an American interior designer) I am now convinced. How cool is this one – love it in the bathroom like that too…

On my search for a new rug I have come across all sorts of delightful ones as well as lots of ideas on how to style them. So I wanted to share a bit of rug inspiration with you because as you can see from these pics, there is so much you can do with a rug and they can really brighten up a space and become a real focus point…

Aren’t these fab! Which is your favourite? I love all of these and especially love the idea of having a nice rug in the bathroom and kitchen.

If you are looking for a new rug too, then there are some gorgeous ones at Anthropologie and Not On The High Street, so do check them out. One Kings Lane is fab too.

Have a good Thursday and I shall be back soon xx

Place settings are something you can really use to personalise your day and make your tables look extra special – so don’t just stop at the floral centre piece – its the details that help provide the wow factor, so go to town and make it your own.

Have a wonderful Wedding Wednesday and I shall be back soon xx

Obsessed… Cactus

June 21, 2016

I am totally obsessed with cactus (or cacti!) at the moment. Those of you who follow me on Instagram will have seen the below cactus/succulent posts recently…

I have put together below a selection of some cool cactus stuff for the home, which is around at the moment. Obviously you can have actual cactus and succulent plants, but there are also lots of artificial items too. I love the wallpaper and the cushions especially…


1 – Light,   2 – Vase,   3 – Wallpaper,    4 – Cushions,   5 – Lamp

The fashion world has gone cactus mad too – they are everywhere! Loving the Charlotte Olympia cactus shoes and the playsuit in the middle is very cool too…


1 – Bikini,   2 – Shoes,   3 – Playsuit,   4 – Shorts,   5 – Clutch Bag

What are your thoughts on this cactus trend, are you a fan? I would obviously not want a whole wardrobe or house full of cactus stuff, but the odd thing I do love!

What I really want is a really massive real cactus plant for my house, but its quite hard to get them in England – does anyone know where I can get one?

Have a fab Tuesday and I shall be back soon xx

Primark Autumn Winter 2016

June 14, 2016


So last week I went to the Primark Autumn Winter 2016 press day in London, for a sneak peak at what we have coming later in the year… its good!

I really think Primark just keeps getting better and better every season. Value is amazing and that is obviously a big draw for most people, but they are also so good at being on trend and doing it quickly, with lots of variety.

In terms of some of what you have to look forward to… a definite disco feel to the Christmas party season stuff which was fab, gorgeous silky nightwear and La Perla inspired lingerie, with sheer florals, sequin bomber jackets in a variety of colours (LOVED them!), sequin dresses, lots of velvet (jackets, trousers, jump suits & dresses) and beautiful blush faux fur…







The shoes and accessories were looking great too – lots of fun, sparkle, animal print and floral. I particularly liked this animal print range below and it was really good quality in real life too – love those boots! How cool is the black sequin bomber jacket – one of my favourite things from the day.




There was some fab stuff in beauty and makeup – lots of glitter and sparkle which I always love and also a range of matte nail polish and lipsticks which looked very cool – I will definitely be giving them a go. I also loved the rose gold range of makeup brushes and accessories – the brushes felt very expensive actually, which of course they won’t be in Primark!



The Primark Home collection for Autumn Winter is looking good too – lots of fab little touches for your home. I so want that pom pom flamingo cushion! Loving the “cloud” and “hello” lights too – did you see the pineapple light I got (is on my Instagram account) recently? That is Primark and was only £10!




Now before you get too excited, Primark are not unfortunately adding food to their range for Autumn Winter, but I just had to share a pic of these rainbow bagels they put on for lunch (filled with cream cheese) – so pretty and they tasted great too!


So what are your thoughts on this little lot? I think there is some great stuff coming and I cannot wait to get my hands on that black sequin bomber jacket and the animal print boots!

Have a good morning and I shall be back soon xx

Make It Delightful – Pom Poms

June 7, 2016

I haven’t posted a Make It Delightful feature for ages, so I thought it was about time. The feature is a collection of my favourite DIY Tutorials and How To’s out there, for those who fancy getting a bit crafty. Today, with my current pom pom obsession I am going to look at how you can create your own DIY pom pom covered delights!

Please click on the link below each photo to find out how to make your own.

Most of us will have learnt how to make pom poms with wool or yarn when we were at school (don’t worry its super easy and super quick!) but for those who didn’t, or for those who just need a refresher – here is how…

What do you think of today’s Make It Delightful? I don’t know what it is about pom poms that makes me swoon… they are just so pretty and can really brighten up something that is otherwise rather plain.

If you have or can make something and would like to show the rest of us how, then please get in touch – I would love to hear from you.

Have a lovely day and I shall be back soon xx
