Bottle Green

I have become stupidly obsessed with Bottle Green's range of cordials of late. I'm not sure if it's the taste or the sleek bottle design that draws me in most...either way, I'm hooked.

Make & Sew

I was super excited to receive my copies of Cath Kidston's Make & Sew publications that came with last weekends Telegraph! They have so many cute ideas for gifts and home accessories that it would be difficult to resist getting the sewing box out! Look out for some crafty posts coming soon!

Nos encanta México!

This summer feels like it has passed by so quickly! Although university is over, I still felt crazy busy and always seem to be rushing form one thing to another! I am very happy to finally be blogging about the amazing Mexican vacation we took back in August...I have been so eager to share the photos!
Ten days spent watching sunrises and sunsets, swimming with whale sharks in the open ocean, snorkeling on the Great Maya Reef, zipping around on F1 speedboats, swimming with dolphins, cliff jumping, feeding iguanas, floating down lazy rivers, swinging on ziplines and of course finding some time to relax on the beautiful beaches sipping ice cold mojitos...they are definitely up there with the best days of my life! 
Whilst we were there we also took the opportunity to visit one of the 'new' Seven wonders of the World, the Mayan pyramids of Chichen Itza. I was truly amazed by the intelligence of the Mayan people which came through in the architecture of their villages. They managed to suss out the structure of our solar system and how it worked without the use of a single telescope! The visit definitely sparked our determination to visit the other Seven Wonders of the World...where will we go next?!

One English Pound

Super excited about the first ever online poundshop! I have never been lucky enough to visit the store itself which pops up temporarily in London, selling goods created by designers under strict instructions that they must cost no more than £1. 
The idea was founded by design collective Household and illustrator Sara Melin and is making its fourth appearance since its launch in April 2010. BUT...the online store closes TODAY so be quick if you want to get yourself some goodies! I have just made myself several pounds lighter and am extremely excited for the arrival of my new things!
