So here’s my latest DIY post for you. I made this little string of bunting a few weeks ago using some stuff I already had lying around. I used some Cath Kidston oilcloth swatches which I bought from their St Neots Factory store, but any oilcloth fabric would work. I quite simply cut the rectangular swatches into triangles by roughly slicing off the edges. I then used a normal paper hole punch to make holes in the top of the triangle.…

As you all know, I got back from my holidays at the weekend. I had a fabulous week relaxing on the beach and by the pool, but no holiday for me is complete without a bit of good British Cath Kidston! I took with me a fair few CK accessories, and also a bag for my hand luggage. And what do you need in your hand luggage? A passport of course! I took with me the linen sprig passport holder to…

When I was at university my boyfriend introduced me to her bits and pieces at Selfridges in the Bullring, Birmingham. The floral prints and pretty patterns were an instant hit with me and really caught my…

With the weather having been beautiful for the last few days (albeit very chilly!) it’s getting me really excited for spring to arrive, and eventually the summer sun! One of the things I love most about spring is that I can wear floral prints and pastel colours without feeling out of place. Admittedly I still wear florals in winter, but it’s not quite right is it? I’m sure you’re all well aware that the majority of my wardrobe consists of floral…
