Sales are on the out and new stock is arriving in all the high street stores and H&M is no exception. I was browsing on their site today and found myself lusting over the new homeware drop. It’s full of neutral, textured pieces with a real luxe feel for a budget price point and let’s face it, who doesn’t love the sound of that!
I’ve long been a fan of H&M’s storage options, this textured ceramic pot is fantastic and would look great on a dressing table, mantle piece or shelf. Aside from being pretty it will also be great for keeping bits and pieces tidy. Having just finished my fireplace I’m looking for some decorate bits to add to it, this bottle shaped vase is perfect and at only £6.99 it’s a total bargain. I’ve had my eye on a throw for a while, especially as the weather has become crazy cold, this one has a lovely texture and I love the colour too. At £29.99 it’s the priciest of my picks, but still isn’t breaking the bank.
The bank holiday weekend is here and with it always comes a whole host of offers, which definitely brightens things up for those of us who have to work. Marks and Spencers currently have 20% off homeware online and instore, so I thought this would be a good time to point out some of my favourite homeware bits from there right now.

When we were doing up our kitchen we really wanted to make it warm, cosy and functional. I wasn’t particularly demanding but there was one thing I had my heart set on… a Smeg fridge. Now I’m sure these fridges need no introduction they’re pretty iconic after all.
I spent ages lusting after one and eventually managed to get a really good deal on a second hand one. In the end up we got a giant Smeg cooker as well and these are two of my favourite items in the kitchen.
One thing we don’t have yet is a toaster (it’s not as inconvenient as you might imagine!) and I’m glad we waited. Why? Well it seems that Smeg are bringing our their very own range of small kitchen appliances including a super cute toaster that will match our fridge perfectly. I’m not too matchy-matchy with kitchen items but I think this will look great, and Smeg appliances are really great quality too so I expect it to last a long time. No word on prices as yet though…. *shudder*
More details on the appliances on the smeg site here.
Hello & welcome to my blog! I thought I would do a little post with a bit about me. My name is Jennifer or more commonly Jen. I work in Marketing, before that I worked in PR for a little while and before that I studied Fashion Marketing and worked in a handbag shop (and I’m still mourning the discount).
It’s a really exciting time for me just now as me and my boyfriend David have just moved into our first flat. Back in August we bought a big old tenement flat in Glasgow, it needed a lot of upgrading before we were able to move in. David’s dad is in the building trade so we were able to do a lot of the work ourselves.
The original intention for the blog was as a way of documenting our renovation. However the actual renovating part took up quite a lot of time and the blog fell by the wayside along with any kind of social life
The general aim for content is lifestyle; a little fashion, a little beauty and a nice bit of interiors chat too. I imagine over time a general direction will form, but we’re all a little shaky in the beginning, right?
