Bombay Duck

Have you been on Bombay Duck recently? They have an amazing range of boutique style products. I’ve pretty much fallen in love with this mirror. It’s the prettiest mirror I’ve ever seen. I actually feel prettier just looking at it, which is a good enough reason for me to buy it! It’s £58.72.

These Vintage Rose Ceramic Knobs are also going on the wishlist. I don’t think I’ve ever been so interested in a door knob…

These Christmas flower xmas hanging balls are in the sale for £2.24. It’s nearly Christmas so that’s an investment, right? Plus anything has to be better than the Poundland variety pack I’ve currently got stored in the loft….

Potty about Prints


The shops seem to be full of really lovely stuff at the moment. Especially wonderful and witty prints. The print on the right is from Hunkydoryhome and reflects nicely how I feel about MY kitchen. It’s £18 and part of a range of prints including “Tea revives you” and “An apple a day”

I liked this print on the left at first glance for its vintage look, but fell in love when I looked closer and noticed the wording around the centre of the heart: “Life would be rubbish without you”. How sweet is that? It’s from Rockett St George and will set you back £40.

The print on the right is possibly my new life motto. I’m anyone’s for a store card! It’s from Etsy seller linocutboy, who also offers the deeply attractive slogan “Let’s get it on: I’ll just brush my teeth”. Linocutboy is a London based artist, and offers his design prints for $14.

See this print? This is the print I should have bought at the start of September, instead of embarking on the #septemberstone diet. Would have saved myself a lot of time and cupcake based guilt. It’s another Etsy find, this time from seller frameablequotes, and you can give it pride of place on your fridge for $17.99.

Decorating Dreams

Some little girls dream of their wedding day, down to every little detail. I dreamt of my first little house and how I’ll decorate it. Whilst some little girls dream of Wedding dresses and table decorations, I was dreaming about Smeg fridges and amazing wallpaper.

At the moment, the main obsession is with the wallpaper. Pretty wallpaper, flocked in particular. I have this image in my head of having some amazing lounge with a funky red sofa, and one statement wall. I kind of forget in that mental image that the pretty lounge will probably be covered in shopping bags, shoes, and magazines rather than artful coffee table books.

My recent crush on Laura Ashley has strengthened after seeing their range of wallpapers. This one of the top left is £26, and is a gorgeous vintage looking pattern. The perfect basis for some really strong coloured accessories.

This funky Tatton wallpaper is a gorgeous one for the bedroom, perfect behind an antique looking bed. It’s £26.

This Isodore wallpaper makes me feel a little bit dreamy and it’s also £26.

Think I’ve found a great storage solutions too! This gorgeous butterfly shelf is £59 from Rockett St George who do a huge range of wall stickers. Although it’s so pretty I’m not sure I’d have the heart to pile my magazines on it

I know this cocktail lamp on the left won’t go with the wallpapers or butterfly shelf…..but it’s so cute that I had to share with you! It’s £15 from http://www.jijikiki.co.uk

Do you have any obsessions for your dream home? Amazing kitchen? Chilled out lounge?

When I grow up….

….I want to make beautiful cupcakes like these:

…wear killer heels like these

….and live in a country cottage like this

In the meantime, I’ll settle for…

Making these…

Investing in these…(£15! here)

And buying one of these…
