We are thankfully becoming more environmentally aware and I for one am thinking twice about buying non-recyclable gift wrap, so I decided to make DIY Valentine’s gift wrap using napkins and fabric pens/paint. Once the gift is opened the napkins could double up for a romantic dinner! Win-win! Simply draw your design using fabric paint or pen and leave to dry.  

With 2020 being a new decade and all, it's an exciting time for interior trends as I personally think many will take the opportunity to say goodbye to staple trends from the past few years. Here are my OSK interior trend predictions for 2020 plus how I'm introducing them to my home...   Colour In line with Pantone Colour of…

It’s right about this time of year that my blood starts turning to into custard because – oh yeah – it’s finally getting cold enough to scoff puddings and pies again!  I love pies, but when it comes to custard?  Meh, I’m more of a hot, strawberry blancmange kinda girl  if I’m being totally honest (I’m an 80s kid through…

  Tick tock, it’s fizz o’clock! I’m pretty convinced that guests would be mightily impressed with your efforts if they walked into your next festive or New Year’s Eve bash and were given these adorable baubles in coupe glasses as their welcome drink. I know I would be 😉 This simple idea is massively up there as my fav DIY…

It is the most wonderful time of year… or, at least, it is supposed to be.  Yet, for many, Christmas can equal excess expectations and extreme expense or indulgence.  Has it all become a bit too ‘extra’ for most of us? Fortunately, 2019 looks set to be the year that ‘excessmas’ takes a back seat.  Research reveals a backlash against…

Mexican Eggs Benny

I’ve always kind of shied away from ol’ Eggs Benedict.  I’ve gotta say, I’m not the biggest fan of mayonnaise (that’s putting it mildly; come within ten feet of me with the stuff and I’ll whip out a crucifix and holy water) – and hollandaise sauce is pretty much a relative of the white stuff. Also, I’ve always been a bit nervous about…

Supporting Local Suppliers and Ditching Pointless Plastic. It's no new news to anybody that non-recyclable plastic is polluting our oceans and killing wildlife. It's also nothing new to hear that we should be adding more fruits and vegetables to our diets. But despite worrying about our health and the wellbeing of our planet - the majority of us take little…

EEEEEEK, I’m so excited to share our Safari Chic Dotty Guest Bedroom with you. It’s also got a few boho touches too so I wasn’t really sure what to call it but hey, Safari Chic Dotty Guest Bedroom it is and hopefully the pictures will do the talking!   WALLS AND FURNITURE I think you’ll agree that the absolute showstopper…

WHAT DOES ‘TIMELESS STYLE’ IN DECOR MEAN? To me, timeless style in decor means an interior scheme or piece of furniture that stands the test of time; it stands strong through all the trends that come and go without ever looking outdated. It always looks current and fresh no matter how old or new it is and has material that…

coconut-tree-review

  This is the first time I’ve been asked to review a restaurant which is pretty shocking considering how much I go out for dinner. I’m more of an eating out kind of person over eating in, thanks to the fact that I’m such an awful cook. Finding new places to go is always a priority for me, especially in…
