Christmas is fast approaching and it’s probably time to start Christmas shopping for most of us. Buying for some members of the family can be difficult, but if you have anyone you know that loves good old fashioned baking and gardening, you should take a look at Garden Trading.

I mentioned a week or two ago about how I was thrilled to have won a £100 voucher to spend at Dunelm Mill! You may think.. ‘that’s so uncool, Dunelm is a granny shop’. Well let me inform you, it’s not! It’s super stylish, and my local store has actually just been refurbished and is now two floors of pretty homely products!

So as I was painting away at my hangers, I decided to…

When I take photos of my new fashion buys for my blog, I usually hang them on a boring naff plastic hanger and then on nail on my wall. Not only does it look a bit tacky but it doesn’t do my new item much justice either, hanging from something so ugly. So I had been hunting for a while for some pretty hangers to use instead. I saw lots of those silky hangers, but these were too narrow and also…
