home: favourite thing [ shopper ]
We love these market totes from Not Another Bill (£18). There’s so many uses, not just as a shopper but think of handy and stylish uses around the home.
Hang a few in a row in a hallway for storing gloves, scarves and other everyday accessories; they’re a great size for housing your undies in a bedroom; lean against a wall in a lounge and home the magazines – endless uses for handy, hangable storage around the home.
A woven shopper made from used cement sacks, an eco bag that is as stylish as it is practical. Empty cement sacks from the construction industry are collected, washed and shredded. The shredded material is then spun into thread, re-dyed & woven into these wonderful bags!

We love the vintage locker look and Zara have this great piece in their children’s department with a slightly lower price than other brands known for these. So get a little retro style into your interior – a great bedside unit, hallway storage or side table.

Plus Zara are working hard to ensure products are ethically sourced and manufactured :
We work with monitoring programmes to ensure compliance with safety, health and quality standards for our products.
The Green to Wear 2.0 standard aims to minimise the environmental impact of textile manufacturing. To that end, we have developed Inditex’s The List programme, which helps guarantee both that production processes are clean and that our garments are safe and healthy. OUTER SHELL100% ironORIGINWe work alongside our suppliers, workers, unions and international bodies to develop a supply chain that respects and promotes human rights, contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Additionally, thanks to an ongoing collaboration with our suppliers, we have developed a tracking programme that allows us to determine where and how our products are being made.

At this time of year, there is nothing better than curling up on the sofa with a good blanket.
We spotted these Pia Wallén cross blankets are from Arket and fell in love. Available in 4 colours the iconic cross pattern will make a statement and is a design classic.

home: found this [ trinket tray ]
There’s something new and exciting from the super cool Mère Soeur – their collaboration with Harlie Brown is a treasure and perfectly timed for Christmas to make the perfect Christmas gift.
The hand made trinket trays come in a choice of three colour ways, making it hard to choose a favourite but they all would make much loved pieces for the home.
They say :
We commissioned this range from Harlie Brown, another mum-run small business on the Kent coast. Each piece is hand built and hand painted by Harlie, no two are the same. There will be variations in glaze and shape.
