Hot home update: 7 black and gold table lamps to lust after

It’s funny how you can go your whole life without particularly thinking about something and then suddenly, one day, wake up desperately wanting that aforementioned thing so much, you can’t possibly imagine your life/living room/lunch without it. Which is exactly how I currently feel about Greek Salad and rather more interestingly, black and gold table lamps……

Hot Home Buy: Pineapples!

  World’s shortest post today as I am so flat out with work, life, children, everything – that I am almost paper-thin-horizontal. BUT can I urge you to hasten to the H&M website and check out their amazing pineapple offerings. Like this serving dish and candle.

Cosy on Up

It’s properly, light a fire, put on another jumper chilly. Which means Strictly and staying in and getting cosy. (Last Friday evening I turned to my husband and said, ‘Isn’t it nice not to have to pretend that we love going out on a cold, wet Friday evening? Not to have to stand in a loud club and pay over the odds for a horrible drink.” Ah, my inner granny is to the fore.) When Alex posted this on Instagram, I had to chuckle – for I was recuperating under that very throw that very minute. In which spirit I give you my pick of the best knitted glories around……
