Nespresso Lattissima

So sometimes you need to make an investment when you see a bargain. I’ve been looking to upgrade my old Dolce Gusto for ages as well lets face it £4 for 8 cups of coffee if you are using the milk pods too well it all adds up! So when i saw this at less…

Nothing says British quite like a Chesterfield

Well this is bigger than any wardrobe updates, picking a new sofa. My old red fabric sofas were looking a little worse for wear after 7 years and I was looking for something traditional classic and hard wearing. Now I have always loved Chesterfield Sofas, chic, classic and quintessentially British who can say no… So…

The Garden – Escape to colour

  Today I escaped to the garden, its Spring and time outside is long overdue. I have finally been able to spend a little money investing in aesthetics rather than necessities, for me flowers are the top of my list. I love country gardens, I love the colour and the warmth they can bring, and…

Wickford Candles – Sweetpea and Rose

I have reviewed Wickford Candles before but usually their Christmas scents. for me they are a cost cutting version of the luxurious Yankee Candles that we all know and love. Whilst out shopping recently I noticed Wickford had brought out their spring scents and I saw this one, Sweetpea and Rose. When I picked up…

Fortnum and Mason – Fountain Heritage Teacup & Saucer

I have to say I could not have been more excited to get this. Sometimes we just need to treat ourselves in life. A recent payment for some project work I had completed and a trip to London with friends led me to splash out on my own bit of English opulent glamour for myself…

Yankee – Black Coconut

I adore candles, for me they are what makes a house a home. I like nothing more than coming home from work or finishing for the day and lightly a candle as the sun sets. Candles are not cheap especially Yankee. So whilst going through some draws I found this jar tucked away in the…

Time for some cosy winter lighting

I have left The Range undiscovered for many a year, and whilst helping a friend recently I popped into the range and fell in love with these. Woodland stage candle holders, perfect to add a little cosy warmth as those winter nights a drawing in. Without the candle in there is just the large stag…

Bloom & Wild

So as we know another year has gone past for me recently and one of my wonderful close friends sent me a bunch of flowers from Bloom & Wild, so I thought what better reason to write another review They say: Our Flower Team are putting the fun back into flower gifting by designing exciting,…

Let there be light

So the festive season is drawing nearer, and if I am honest I do love a dinner party. What better than making a statement than with some candlelight. I find I often avoid statement pieces with the fear of them looking tacky but spend my time admiring them in other homes. I love the idea…

Country Life – Cordura Jack Pyke Bag

So as many of you who follow my blog know I have a dog, a Pointerdor called Fudge. But when I head out into the Countryside for cosy Autumn walks, or head out for a weekend away where do I put all the dog bits? leads, poop bags, bowls, treats, food, it can be a…

Cooking for your Pooch – Part 1

So most of you don’t know I have a dog, he’s a three year old pointer x lab called Fudge. He very sensitive like a pointer, and chilled out like a lab, but odd being a rescue (scared of the dark/nightmares/aggressive towards labs/hates the rain). He also has terrible ear issues and has cost me…

Scent of home – Scandinavian Log Fire

So it’s getting to THAT time of year, and now I refuse to say the word yet, but the nights a drawing in, the jumpers and boots are coming out and the cosy throws are going back onto the sofas. Whilst doing some shopping recently I popped into Matalan and whilst at the checkout this…
