BBQ Days

Having just returned from a beautiful sunny week away in Cornwall, we’re keen to keep the holiday vibes going for as long as possible here at Little House. The hubster (Alex) had been very eager to BBQ a (huge) Ribeye Tomahawk Steak, so after said piece of meat was in the bag from our local butchers,…

Picnic fun in the garden

With school officially out here at Little House, we’re busy making plans for the summer holidays. Garden fun is always top of the list, we love our little city garden and treat it as another ‘room’ in the summer months. Marks & Spencer recently got in touch to see if I wanted to feature* some…

Spanish Themed Dinner Party

  Anyone who knows me, will know that I love hosting a dinner party. I really enjoy having friends over to share a bottle a wine, eat some hearty home-cooked food and have a good old catch up. Let’s not forget to add laughter into the mix, and of course some great music playing in the…

A Crafty Day

My daughter Ava and I just love a spot of crafting. At the beginning of the school holidays, one of the first places we head is Hobbycraft, as it’s been our go-to craft supplier for an age now. When Hobbycraft asked if we’d like to get stuck into some crafty projects*, we both (literally) jumped…

~8 of the best~ Colourful Spaces

As many of you know, I’m a keen instagrammer, I spend an awful lot of my time insta-browsing. Much of this is due to the fact that I run, and founded the very successful interiors hashtag #myhousethismonth. This has exposed me to 1000’s of beautiful homes, rooms, gardens and shops. I thought I’d start putting…

Laura Ashley Summer Revamp

I think most of you will agree, but there’s something delightfully ‘grown up’ about shopping at Laura Ashley. When we bought our home 20 years ago, it was one of the first places I headed, to kit myself out with candles, picture frames and a posh throw. I can often be found at the weekends…

~Travel~ Château de Vézins, Loire

When I was a little girl, I used to dream that one day I’d live in a château, swanning around in beautiful period costume, and lounging on a chaise longue… Ok, so I actually live in a little Victorian terrace in London, but my passion for period properties and all their wonders and features lives…

~Small Business Round Up~ Father’s Day gift ideas

Is it just me, or are men DIFFICULT to buy for!? Even choosing a gift for my teenage son is getting tougher. With Father’s Day fast approaching, I’ve rounded up some fabulous present ideas. From grooming kits to chocolate treats, I’ve put together a few fabulous finds from small independent businesses to help you on…

Pre-teen bedroom makeover

My daughter Ava recently turned 11, so it was time to ditch the pale pink walls and Build-A-Bear wardrobe for something a bit more grown up. I let Ava loose on Pinterest, which of course, I instantly regretted, the ‘boho’ themes she was leaning towards included a jungle of plants and giant swing seats in…

An evening with The White Company

Last week, I was lucky enough to be invited to spend the evening with The White Company. The event was held at one of their flagship stores, in Marylebone. The store is simply stunning, this image above is just one of the beautiful displays. I was, to put it in simple terms, in White Company…
