Dreaming of Homeware

In March Stu and I rearranged and somewhat redecorated our bedroom, and since then I've been looking at so much homeware online that I want, I figured I'd post a blog of what I've been drooling over!


This would make an amazing feature wall in a smaller room, or be an amazing throw on a bed!


Mirror, mirror on the wall, this mirror is the fairest of them all!


Jazz up your boring or plain drawers with these fantastic drawer knobs! I have an idea I plan to make that uses Sass & Belle's amazing unusual knobs....


I am always looking for new fantastic ways to store my jewellery, I have kind of a lot, and I love this!


Following on in my ever present stag them, how fantastic is this! Kind of 70's, all kinds of brilliant.


So maybe this is somewhat ridiculous, but an amazing statement piece this would be!


Antiprism's whole store is incredible. They have clothing and art prints, and they are just stunning.


I bought a piece from The Painted Skull at Tattoo Tea Party, and fell in love with her unusual designs. I need more!


It's a lamp. That is a burger. That is all I need to say really isn't it?



I am very much in lust with this. What a fantastic and unusual way to display and store jewellery.


I think this would make me happy every day I saw it.


A wonderful blend of creepy and delicate, Charlotte Clark's work is so inspiring.


I like to shop for 'If I win the lottery' stuff, and this would be on that list.

I am always looking for new websites to ogle homeware on, what are your favourites?

Much love,
Kitty xxxx

The Last Sugar & Vice Subscription Box

This month was the last ever Sugar & Vice subscription box for their Afternoon Tea collection. I am both super sad that it is the last one, but also totally understanding because it must be such a huge undertaking for just 2 people to do!


As ever, the box is arrives is stunning. The teal print is a lovely touch.


And upon opening, not only is there Sugar & Vice branded rock, but a tea and a candy necklace too. I love those little nuances that make their customer care so fantastic. As ever the bags containing the jewellery are black, so what is inside remains a surprise till each is opened.


The first thing I opened was this adorable purple brooch! It will be getting added to my beloved denim jacket for sure, so cute. It is not on their website currently, so I think it is the subscriber only goodie.


Available in vanilla, chocolate and pink wafer, this is so cute. A mix of wood and acrylic the detail is stunning.


Available in blueberry and cherry, I got the blueberry option. Again, a mix of wood and acrylic that just works so so well.


That I got this necklace in lilac makes me super happy, purple is my favourite! It also comes in pink, yellow and peach. This is, quite simply, adorable! Certainly a favourite from the new collection.


Now this is the perfect necklace for any tea fiend! It's a really cute design, the heart detail in the top of the handle is a particularly nice touch.

And now for some other favourites from the collection!


The pastel colours are so perfect for Spring, perfect to wear with your macaron necklace.


Oh my, battenburg is a favourite goodie of mine, and this necklace is just perfect.


For me, this is the standout piece from the collection and my favourite. The bunting has roses etched into it and the colour combination is gorgeous. I love it!

While I am sad this is the last subscription box, I have found while I've been subscribed I didn't buy individual pieces so often from Sugar & Vice, so I'm looking forward to picking out favourites of the new collections to come instead!

Much love,
Kitty xxxxx

Monochromatic.


Cardigan - George at Asda, no longer available
Top - ASOS £28
Capris - New Look £14.99
Shoes - Converse
Sunglasses - Philip Normal
Necklace - Sugar & Vice, no longer available, similar here

Spring has been sneaking up on us and I managed to dress cute for work again and grab photos for an outfit of the day post! I am in love with these capri jeans from New Look. They also have them in blue denim, and I think I might have to get them in that too. Really soft, very comfy, and they show off my leg tattoos. George have had so much cute stuff lately! I love a good oversized cardigan and have worn this so much. It's no longer available but I highly recommend taking a look in store or on their website. A lot of plus size bargains are to be found. The top is also a favourite of mine, it's now available in red.... which I might also need. I felt really cute this day. Casual, but the monochrome with flashes of red makes every outfit feel more dressed up.

Much love,

Handbags and Gladrags

Until recently, I had to have a bulky and ungainly handbag to carry around all my medication and bits for my chronic illness, but thankfully these days I'm on less meds so can get away with a smaller, and therefore generally cuter bag! Bags can make such an awesome statement, and there are so many creative designs out there now. I've been going a bit bag crazy lately, and these are some current wish list pieces.

















Seriously, how cute are these? I'm gonna need a sugar daddy already.

Much love,

A Lovely Mother's Day

We had a lovely Mother's Day. We spent the day at my Mum's house, with my Auntie and my Grandmothers. I think it's so important to celebrate all the matriarchs in your life, not just your Mum.


Me and my Mum! Isn't she a babe? We don't often look alike, but in this photo we really, really do.

Dress - New Look, no longer available
Jacket - New Look, no longer available but similar here
Boots - Demonia
Bag - ASOS
Necklace - Christmas present from Stu

My outfit! I wanted to wear something girly for my Mum's sake :) The dress is somewhat on the short side, I find New Look dresses tend to run quite short so a word of warning if you are tall like me!


We got an amazing Terry's Chocolate Orange cheesecake from Once Upon a Time. It was so delicious!

And here is what I got for gifts for my family


Sass & Belle Magnet





I got my Mum, Auntie and Grandmothers each a chocolate heart :)

All of these gifts would make lovely birthday presents too, Sass & Belle is definitely a website I'll be keeping an eye on, they have so much lovely stuff, especially adorable homeware.


And another photo of me being super awkward while Stu tries to take an outfit for me. I am so bad at having my photo taken! My hair finally looks like it is getting longer at least.

Much love,
Kitty xxxxx

Sugar & Vice Spring Sale!

Sugar & Vice are having an amazing spring sale and I had to tell you about it! Here are some of my favourite pieces that it's your last chance to snap up.


I have this necklace and it is so so adorable! The pastel colours are perfect for spring and summer.


Because of my chronic illness and the medication I take for it, I can't drink alcohol, but when I could, gin was totally my thing, and I would have rocked this necklace!


Seriously though, who doesn't love pizza?


Perfect for every merbabe! I've had my eye on this for a while and need to snap it up quick!


Available in both mirrored acrylic and semi-translucent, this is a beautiful statement piece.


So summer is coming... could there be a more suitable necklace for a proper British summer?


So adorable! I almost wish I didn't have stretched ears for these cuties.


I love sci-fi, and this is a really cute piece.


Now you don't get much more of a statement piece than this! At a whopping 12cm wide, it's the perfect piece to set off a summer outfit. The different colours mean this will match or brighten up most outfits.

There are so many more gorgeous items in their sale, and they won't be available again when it finishes, so be sure to grab them quick!

Much love,
Kitty xxxxx
