Find Your Style with John Lewis

STYLE ADVICE JOHN LEWIS

It’s taken me a long time to find my interiors style. I think my mum would probably categorise it as “bonkers”. Some of my mates would probably class me as a “maximalist”, often shunning plain walls or empty shelves. I think it would probably be most accurate to describe my style as a bit off-the-wall (pardon the pun). I like my walls to be rich

April Showers: Wayfair Artwork for a Rainy Day

Drip, drip, drop Little April shower Beating a tune As you fall all around It feels quite apt that it’s been absolutely absolutely heaving it down with rain this week. My little girl has had bursts of additional naps following days of splashing in puddles, with her raincoat hanging up to dry over the radiator shortly after. Manchester isn’t called ‘rain city’ for nothing. I know

10 Colourful Floors for Kids!

You only need to take a look at my Instagram to know that, like so many others… #IHaveThisThingWithFloors So when an e-mail dropped into my inbox from a brand called Atrafloor with an absolutely bonkers amount of cute floor designs, I knew it was something I couldn’t keep to myself. The brand currently prints designs onto a premium vinyl. Now, I don’t know about you,

War of the Whiffs: Candles Vs Wax Melts

an itroduction to wax melts

It’s time for a showdown! This week I’ve had a little playabout with wax melts. I know, I know, these aren’t new. Wax melts have been around for ages, but truth be told, I’ve never thought much of them. Whilst the hubster is a big fan of smelly candles, and we visit IKEA often enough to top up our stash, candles were always our go-to

Why Dr Seuss is My #1 Designer

WHY SEUSS WAS THE GREATEST DESIGNER

It’s probably not much of a secret that I’m a big fan of Dr. Seuss. I’ve long loved his illustrations and adored his books as a child. Myself and my sister, often mistaken for twins, acknowledge each other as Thing 1 and Thing 2, lovingly of course. As an adult I can appreciate Dr. Seuss for the philosopher he was (and if you’re not aware

Primark Homeware Haul: Tropical, Luxe & Kids

Primark Homeware Haul

Hello you lovely bunch of coconuts. So recently I took a trip to Primark – not unusual for me. It’s near to where I work and I needed to pick up a few cheap bits of clothes for Luna. On this occasion, I made the mistake of walking past the homeware section and for the first time, I became one of those people who came

Dinnerware you’ll want to colour in

Spring is SO close, I can feel it in the air! I’m definitely more of a winter gal at heart, but there is something about those chilly get-ups with a glow of morning sun that gives me all the feels. (Or maybe it’s the fact that I can finally rock my floral bomber jacket collection and not completely freeze to death!) That being said, it’s

Now Open: Oliver Bonas in Manchester

Oliver Bonas Manchester

I first visited an Oliver Bonas store last year – I was in London on a press day and seeing the brand in an actual brick and mortar store and not just on the teeny screen of my phone was still quite a novelty for this Northerner. Scoot ahead to 2017, and things are looking very different for them up here in Manchester. They tested the

Afternoon Tea at Wedgwood

Who doesn’t love a good afternoon tea? Whilst I’m not a traditional tea drinker (I know, I’m a rubbish Brit), I do like flavoured teas. And cake. Boy, do I like cake. I recently took my bestie to the World of Wedgwood for this very reason – and because it was her birthday. Fancy a sneak peak at how we spent the day? For those

4 Unmissable Bars in Budapest

So if you’re not sick of me going on and on about it yet, I visited Budapest in November of last year as a birthday treat to my husband. We stayed in an epic Airbnb which I blogged here, and I even gave you a little glimpse into the colourful architecture which you can read about here. What I haven’t covered yet is the food
