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…

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…

Fortnum’s Tea Disc Infuser

The eternal teapot dilemma. What if you wish to have tea for one, but are using loose leaf tea? Until now I had been resorting to the traditional teapot and strainer or if not a tea bag *Cringe* shock horror! So I decided that was something that could not go on due to the large…

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…

Bedroom update – let in a little light

As you know I am always looking for ways to update my home with cost always in mind. So whilst on an impromptu trip to IKEA I came across the Pendant lamp shade KRUSNING. For the bargain of only £9.00 how could I say no. It basically is flat sheets of paper that you can…

Steamed Pesto Veg

No for those who grow their own, we all end up with an abundance of greens. What to do with them all? well I’ve also had some very successful basil growing on my kitchen windowsill so what better than some simple goodness of steamed veg? Many of the nutrients in vegetables can leach into the…

Teapot plant pot

I hate the idea of waste and also procrastinate far toomuch on pinterest. As you have probably worked out by now I also like the idea of upcycling and using what would otherwise be tat in a new and innovative way. Whilst clearing out the kitchen I discovered an old teapot that I was planning…
