Weekend in London: Hub by Premier Inn, The Cheese Bar & Hummingbird Bakery

Over the long Bank Holiday weekend last month, Gavin and I went to London and stayed in the Hub by Premier Inn hotel on Brick Lane for 2 nights, so I thought I'd do a review. We had a pretty busy weekend as we had tickets to see You Me At Six at Alexandra Palace on the first night, and then tickets to go to a Real Friends gig in Camden for the second night! We also had drink and dinner booked at Icebar London (check out my blog post) which was probably the highlight of our trip!

DIY: How to Make a Marble Top Table

I often used to post about little DIY projects I would complete at home, but it's literally been years since I last did something creative! But a couple of weeks ago I got my creative mojo back and decided I wanted to give this lovely French style bedside table (from Out There Interiors) a little make over.

It's been in my dressing room for 18 months with bare, raw wood and heavy metal drawer pulls. I quite liked the natural finish, but it didn't really fit in with the rest of the decor. I decided to give it a lick of paint, some new knobs, and a stylish new top to freshen it up a bit. Here is my little guide on how to make a marble top table.

Copper Homeware Accessories from Red Candy

Pretty homeware accessories in copper and metallic gold tones are still a hot trend, often alongside a marble background. I'm a bit late to the whole thing, but luckily Red Candy have come to my rescue and now I have officially jumped on the bandwagon. And I'm not ashamed to confess my new love for copper homeware accessories and pineapples!
