Kitchen interior – Wrendale

It’s really no secret that I am one of the biggest fans of Wrendale Designs. Created by Hannah Dale who first started out as a stock broker in London. She now designs from her studio in Lincolnshire, where these adorable little creatures come alive and flutter into our hearts. I am pleased to say that…

Cuddly kitties!

Yes, the rumours are true we adopted two Birman Blue! These cute fluff balls came from Oxfordshire’s Cats Protection centre, run by volunteers who rescue the cats from all over the county – and I cannot being to express how incredible the centre is, the time, effort and money put into rescuing cats from all…

Thinking ahead

It’s so healthy to both live in the here and now but also be aware of the future and plan head. Today I’ve been adding to my ever growing rows of crocheting on my blanket. It’s going to be soft natural colours made with Organic Manx Wool given to me by my mum. Crocheting for…

Non-stop Coffee Shop

I’m one of those people that loves coffee shops and not coffee. I’m much more a juicer / chai and tea drinker, I just can’t get my head around that bitter taste or living with coffee breath (queue flashbacks to coffee breath driving instructor). I also don’t drink milk, so to have coffee black or…

Cinnamon rain

It’s been raining all day today and I’ve spent it listing to the drips and drops, reading my wonderful vampire book and relaxing watching Netflix. It’s rained so much the last few days that we’ve had flooding and hardly any sunshine, but I think rain is a great opportunity to relax and enjoy the comforts…

I am so thrilled the U.K. has bank holidays, it’s an opportunity for those of us who work full time to take a few days holiday without having to dip into our precious holiday funds from work. Here are my tips on making the most of these times and what you can get up to…

Book shops

I recently got back from a weekend trip to Hay-On-Wye, the country’s capital for bookshops. Our journey down to Hay was wet windy and took about three hours. However, it was most certainly worth it! For this blog I have picked my top bookshops (or places to get books). There are so many more to see…

My hygge home

It’s official! I now live in an adorable, old house surrounded by beams in a quite little town just outside of Oxford overlooking spires, pretty old houses and at night the cutest of sunsets. Moving from a London Kensington flat was not an easy decision for us, moving from a city that had everything. Parks,…

Toasty warm drinks!

I don’t know about you all, but I’ve been so put off any type of dairy (even lactose free, as I am lactose intolerant)! I read an article a few weeks ago about dairy and someone wrote that pus is in dairy and quite honestly, true or not it just makes me feel sick every…
