• Just Good Friday

    August 22nd 2014 katie

    To get me out of a bit of blogging-block, I thought I’d share some random things from around the Internet that have made me smile lately. 1. Stacking ceramic beakers with logos inspired by Communist Poland. Surprisingly lovely. 2. I just want everything cat print from Paul & Joe Sister. 3. Bunting washi tape, ideal…

  • Afternoon tea with Truly

    July 8th 2014 katie

    Picking special presents year after year can be a bit of a pain, especially when you’re like us and have no room left in your flat for any more physical objects! That’s why I love giving and receiving ‘experiences’ instead: dinner, cooking classes, something that you can enjoy and/or learn from rather than accumulating more…

  • The Bathory custom bath soak: review & giveaway

    July 2nd 2014 katie

    What do craft beer, Instagram-printed marshmallows and luxury bath soak have in common? They’re all startups¬†from the clever folks at Mint Digital. Check out DeskBeers and Boomf at your leisure, but today we’re talking bathtime with The Bathory and their custom-made, hand-blended bath soaks. The Bathory invited me to have a go at making my…

  • Makin’ cider

    October 21st 2013 katie

    Ugh, autumn is truly here isn’t it? I swear it got dark at 3pm yesterday, so miserable. In my mind the only good things about the gloomy seasons are of the edible and quaffable varieties: a few months of soups, stews and mulled things make it all bearable. So I was happy to get an…

  • Brooklyn shopping

    October 11th 2013 katie

    We went to the famous Brooklyn Flea, but to the Saturday one at Fort Greene, not the main Williamsburg one. It was pretty good – quite small (I guess the main one is bigger) and a lot of vendors selling new stuff but a few gem stalls with that awesome Americana I was hoping to…

  • Fired Earth vs London Underground

    September 18th 2013 katie

    I’m loving this new Underground 150 collection from Fired Earth, a collaboration to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Tube. The Edwardian range, based on original early 20th century tile molds. These Landmark tiles are also reproduced from original molds from 1939. Some classic Underground signage recreated in faithful typefaces. To complement the range they’ve…

    June 8th 2013 katie

    Firstly, thank you so much for all your comments and messages about Yoni. It was amazing to hear what a loved little cat he is from all corners of the internet, and hearing from you really did help me get through the days. He’s back home now, slowly getting used to normal life again with…

  • Brighton home buys

    February 4th 2013 katie

    I brought back a few souvenirs for the house from Brighton, and gave the fireplace yet another rearrange… I was happy to spot the Cable & Cotton shop in Brighton as I’d been hovering over the ‘buy’ button on their website for a while, after seeing their lovely bespokely-coloured bauble lights on Kerry’s blog. The…

  • Christmas wishing

    December 5th 2012 katie

    It’s officially under three weeks until Christmas (!) so I think we’re OK to talk about it now, right? I’ve just started all my present shopping: unusually I’m doing most of it online this year but I think a little trip to Westfield or Selfridges for the final bits is due soon. I have of…

  • Urban Outfitters Home

    November 16th 2012 katie

    I’m pleased to see that Urban Outfitters UK is taking a leaf out of the US’s book and adding more homewares to its range. Much of it is online only, but there’s a great selection of rugs, bedding, storage and knick-knacks. And isn’t the photo styling nice and enticing? Rugs starting at just ¬£12. I…
