The great jeans search

I’m sure every girl out these will know where I’m coming from with this post. We love our jeans and, as we move into autumn and winter, will be living in them more and more. But shopping for them can be a nightmare. You know what size you are in one shop, but when you…

Coloured candles

I’ve turned my attentions to the table settings for our wedding recently, now that certain things like dresses and accessories are in the bag. And I’ve become quite obsessed with the idea of coloured dinner candles. So, of course, I’ve turned to Pinterest for inspiration. Here’s a gallery I thought I’d share… Do you love…

Getting crafty

I’ve been having fun testing out arts and crafts classes in my day job at House & Garden recently, turning my hand to everything from block printing to paper cutting.

Gorgeous patterned armchairs

But I’m getting a bit sick of the constantly achey shoulder, so I’ve decided to downsize. Not all the time, because, sadly, I do…

A Boden state of mind

It seems the time comes in all of our lives when we want to wear Boden. Top to toe. All day long. For me, this time is now. Gone are the days of synthetic tops from Primark and painful high heels from New Look. Now I want £50-plus cotton tops and bejewelled flats from Boden….

Wallpaper dreams

Living in a rented house means that decoration has to be pretty minimal – a lick of paint here, a picture there. You can’t be painting the walls black and knocking down walls. This generally suits me just fine, as I’m not the most creative when it comes to interiors, but I can’t help dreaming…
