Last weekend I held a little tea party for my family at home in our dining room. My Mum and I spent the day before preparing some food and bits for the table, including scones, lemon drizzle cake, jelly, Easter shaped chocolates, chocolate nest cakes, and plenty of sandwiches! I absolutely love making lemon cake in the spring time, I think it’s so refreshing in the sunshine and it looked so pretty presented on my pink glass cake stand. To make…

At the end of last week I decided to treat my parents to a takeaway meal, which is something we don’t do very often, so we were really looking forward to it! I think it’s always nice to have a ‘special’ dinner with family where you can all sit around at the table together, share food, and chat away all evening.

I’ve been an admirer of Muru jewellery for a few years now; they do stunning designs and each piece has a special meaning. Their pendants are modern and unique and I adore all the pretty designs. Celebrity wearers include Zooey Deschanel, Caroline Flack and Pixie Lott! I already have the anchor necklace, but Jewel Street kindly offered me a piece from their online boutique and I chose another Muru item; the Old Key pendant. My item arrived really quickly and beautifully…
