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

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

High Five – Pom Poms at Home

July 15, 2016

Happy Friday! So you may have seen last weeks High Five on the blog, which was Pom Pom Fashion? I am clearly obsessed with pom poms right now – did you see my River Island pom pom sandals, or my pom pom Make It Delightful post?

Anyway, here is today’s high five…

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…

Vintage rug from One Kings Lane – room designed by Becki Owens

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

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…

FullSizeRender (5)

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…

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
