FOR THE PEAK WALK | If a gal is going to work out she may as well look cute while doing it, Thanks Stella McCartney, from Adidas.

FOR THE LEAN CLOSET | I am in desperate need on a new handbag, I think the Mr Caiman is just the one, from Deadly Ponies.

FOR THE ORGANISATION | Lists and more lists are much more fun with a pretty pen, from Father Rabbit.

HOUSTONdesign 1HHplantpotHHplatterHHsideplateWIN


It is no secret I am a fan of Houston Design Co. As I shared on my Yes Please the other day, she is on my Christmas wish list.

From the moment I stumbled across her little corner of instagram I was hooked. A clever and extremely adept women creating dreamy ceramics? Needless to say, it was a rather instant a girl crush.

And now the long anticipated shop has arrived, stocking her impeccable wares  of platters, planters, plates and the cutest little creamer jug.

Holly has kindly gifted a  set of side plates for us to giveaway! So here is your chance to win. All you have to do is head over to Houston Design Co, have a gander and come back here to tell us in the comments which item you covet the most.  There are also more options to enter on our Facebook & Instagram.

Plus, she is also offering a discount exclusive to Blackbird Readers  : Enter the code | blackbird at checkout for a 15% discount! What a gal.

Valid until the end of December.

YES PLEASE / kitchen


With the majority of the kitchen finished, and after turning my hand to tiling, grouting and the likes, it’s time for the fun to begin .  As usual we have kept everything clean and light and choosing accessories to reflect that. Here is a few on the top of my list.

New Norm thermo mug in Ash / Pallares Solsona kitchen knife / Wooden bracket shelf / Iron wire basket / Round Acacia chopping board / Paysan pitcher in chalk white

YES PLEASE // Birthday edition

Converse all white shoe  //  Meadowlark geometric rings // Falconware mug // M.A.C Lipliner // Brass Sissors //   Ferm Living Marble cushion // Landlocked Apparel tee

Ahhhh birthdays.
Usually I like to have a ‘ celebration of my deterioration’ of sorts, but not this year. This year I will happily dine with a few friends and get an early night. I know, the years are catching up with me.
And with just over a month till my birthday, the hints begin.

 The husband says that I am hard to buy for, that I am fussy. I disagree, I am well educated darling husband, and have fine taste. So here is a helping hand for him.

You can thank me later love.

Until next time.
