Old English Company stationery

If you’re anything like me you struggle to keep organised and have a million and one scraps of paper with various numbers and names scrawled on them – generally whatever I can reach when I am taking a message on the phone!

As a result, it has become a new goal of mine to get into better habits when it comes to organisation, and keeping track of my tasks both at work and at home, or for my side-hustle mentoring businesses, & The Hive.

Old English Company very kindly sent me a selection of their beautiful and highly instagram worthy stationery to try and kick-start my new highly efficient life, and I am so excited to get my planner filled in, my schedule arranged, or simply having some pretty post-it notes to hand for those on-the-phone memos.

I also couldn’t resist this motivational mug – although in my usual vocabulary it would say ‘get sh*t done’ instead.

Do you have any super organisation tips you can share with me to keep my momentum going? Seen any cool stationary recently?

Love! X

Larch Living

Anyone who has followed my blog for sometime now will know how much I love supporting small businesses. They may also know that I moved into my first home this September in Manchester, and naturally I had my eyes open for cute living items to make it feel like home.

Larch Living, a company I have been following on Instagram for a while now, really caught my eye with their eye catching Skandi-style homeware items in monochrome hues, as well as offering a delightful selection of Jewellery and miscellaneous gift items perfect for Christmas.

Who doesn’t love scatter cushions, I ask?

The Cloud and Raindrops cushion was  the one I fell for- shop it here. its a beautiful soft linen fabric, and although you can’t see in the photo, the reverse is patterned in tiny black raindrops!

Here it is in pride on place on the bed!

Seeing as I mentioned the jewellery, I thought I would show off what is by far one of the most beautiful pieces of jewellery that I think I will ever own! A ceramic hummingbird. The quality of this piece is beyond what I was hoping for, with a delicate chain. The colours of the paint and the enamel glaze are really beautiful. Shop it here, it’s on sale at the moment too!

Visit their website as there’s not of items on sale right now so you can pick up a bargain in time for Christmas.

M&S Home picks under £25

Good afternoon! You can count this my final post before I go on my holidays to Crete for my 1 year wedding anniversary!

Recently I moved into my first home, and a lot of time and money has been spent filling it with furniture and things to make it functional, and of course, pretty!

I thought I would share with you three beautiful things I found from M&S that came in at under £25 to add a special touch to a home.

Stag cushion

The stag, synonymous with Game of Thrones and it’s house Baratheon, makes me feel rather autumnal for some reason! I’ve seen it everywhere in soft furnishings, and it adds a beautiful regal touch to any room.

This one costs £25, and is super soft.

Bumblebee embroidered cushion

Considering how beautiful this is, it’s staggering (heh) to think that it only cost £12 for the delightful and beautifully made cushion. It’s small, sure, but the colours really pop.

Capri Table lamp

Marks and Spencer was actually the last place we thought to  look for table lamps- we thought that they would come in too pricey, considering we only needed something simple and neutral toned.

These table lamps cost £19.50 each, which was ideally in our budget.
