We've been living in our lovely flat for just over a year now. As you may have seen in past blog posts, it hasn't been exactly how I envisaged the first year here to be. A year on, I'm about to get real and share all the things we missed when we moved in that I wish we'd taken more time on now, so that you can save yourself time and money by learning from our mistakes.Read More

A couple of weeks a go I was invited along to the press evening for the forthcoming Heal's AW14 collection. I'm a big Heal's fan and seeing as they are a bit of a British institution at 200 years old, I thought it only right to go along to their huge Tottenham Court road store and check out the new pieces. Oh, and did I mention they were displaying their new xmas decorations? Xmas in July... I think so!
