Wishlist: Marble & Copper Homeware *

I always enjoy putting together a wishlist post as there's nothing I love more than a bit of window shopping! In this wishlist I have put together some of my favourite homewares that I have spotted online which are all copper or marble themed.

This is a big trend this season and although I'm pretty late on the old bandwagon, I think it will be around for quite a whole! I love the fresh white look of the marble and the stylish gold accents, the two go so nicely together.

If you're looking to revamp your home, check out some of these beautiful homeware items. I love the  marble base table lamp with a brushed brass stem, which would look stunning on a bedside table. I have also seen lots of these wire cage tea light holders and decorations lately, and this one I found in Wilko is a steal!

I think the items I would most love are the copper pineapple storage pot (how cute is that?!) along with the marble and copper initial coaster. They would look just perfect in my dressing room, and I think I might have to just treat myself when payday (finally) comes around. Oh and the little marble and gold notebook too.. who can resist more stationery!

What's your favourite item?

The Knife and Cleaver Pub, Hougton Conquest

To celebrate my new job, a few weeks ago I went out for dinner to The Knife and Cleaver pub in Houghton Conquest. The award winning pub, restaurant and hotel is located in the small village just outside of Bedford, opposite a beautiful old church.

My Top Blogging Tips & Useful Links

This post is very much my own personal take on blogging and although I am certainly no blogger expert, I thought I'd share a few of my top tips!  I started my blog in April 2010, and I find it crazy that I've now been posting in my own little corner of the web for almost 7 years. 

There's so much to know about blogging, the online world is forever changing, and it would be impossible for anyone to put it all into a guide.  But recently since starting my new job in Digital Marketing, I've been thinking about giving my blog a little revamp, and here are some things I have learnt recently.
