LIFESTYLE AND INTERIORS

A few of my favourite things | February

Wow, it’s March already and Easter is in sight. I can’t believe Hettie is 3 months old and she’s seen her first flakes of snow. As we wait for the temperatures to rise, grab a hot chocolate and take a gander at what I’ve loved this February.

“Tabitha” round mini bag by Pirates & Violets – Pirates & Violets was set up by a Mum of two Lisa. Her designs are always fabulous and this little bag which can be used as a clutch or cross-body bag (or in my case a little girl’s bag purchased when the little girl is on 13 weeks old!!). Available here.

Superstar Night Oil by Pestle and Mortar – I think most of us after seeing “The Truth About Beauty” went on the hunt for products which contained retinol in an attempt to turn back time. This oil has been amazing. My skin is very sensitive and after reading about this on the Caroline Hirons website I made the purchase. It feels lovely to apply and I wake up with smoother skin – hurrah! Available here.

Cru sneakers by Air & Grace – it’s no secret I think Claire from Air & Grace is a design genius. Her designs are always fabulous and I always want them all! These trainers (for me) are the perfect black sneaker with a bit of sparkle which isn’t too sparkly. They have a slim fit so feet don’t look clumpy. Available to pre-order…and while you’re there take a look at Cherub – understated wonderfulness! Available here.

Knitted jumper by H&M – I have the pink version of this and it really does give the Ganni knit a run for its money. It even has a wool, mohair mix. Layered with a long sleeve tee for this weather and then with a contrasting colour camisole underneath and denim shorts for balmy Summer evenings. Available here.

Tweed Safari Jacket by Zara – this is currently sitting in my Zara shopping basket. I love this smart alternative to a khaki utility jacket. Available here.
