Home Accessories

Apothecary Essence
For candles that keep the scent throughout them burning try  Apothecary Essence my absolutely favourite is Enchantress.



The mists are a pretty fail safe way of uplifting and refreshing your home. Often catch husband going around the house spraying the mist before friends come for dinner! Now that is saying something.

Skin Care

Mallow + White
For totally pure plant base skin care Mallow + White is a must. Joanna’s day care oil makes your skin as smooth as a rose petal. Can’t live without it!


Fabrics 

Rebecca Mills Design
My first port of call for fabrics with an edge is Rebecca Mills Design. I’m blown over by how Rebecca uses colour, texture and pattern all in one fabric. Her cushions are on my sofas and on my bed! 



Stationery

Rebecca Yates London
Personalised stationery always does it for me and Rebecca Yates London cards and notebooks are a burst of colour and fun. Her blogs and Instagram account is full of inspirational advice and motivational exercises. 



Art

Rachel Bellman The Sea Glass Artist
I’ve always been drawn to sea glass and used to seek it out in those long beach walks. Rachel Bellman makes absolutely charming pictures with sea glass and will often add touches of try artistic genius.  Always a winner when you are looking for that special present. 


Flowers

Iris Design Floral
When it come to flowers Iris Design Floral has the knack of only selecting the best faux flowers around. You will be hard pushed to spot the difference! Jemima’s bouquets combine blooms with tons of foliage making them truly stunning!
