Etsy my top 5  interiors shops and wishlist

In the last year or two I have worked hard on upgrading my home decor and making the place feel more fresh and light, getting rid of stuff that didn't make me happy. Now I am gradually adding in decorative pieces that more fit our style, mean something and bring us joy.

I recently discovered the wonders of Etsy, I of course had used Etsy for the odd gift but I never really thought of it before for adding unique pieces to my home, but there are literally so many quality products that have either already found there way to my home, or I am lusting after, so thought I would share with you some of my favourite shops and products I have found so far.

Top of my wish list is wire words from Greyfoxdesignuk, we have already chosen our phrase, and I will be placing an order very soon.
Etsy my top 5  interiors shops and wishlist
I'll be sure to share images on my insta when I have it installed in my living room, such a good way to create a unique piece for your home.

An item I already have up on the wall in my dining room, is a map of Durban, the city where my husband was born, Mapsta create loads of designs including ready made options or have you own custom design made. They also have a 50% off sale and the time of writing this post.
Etsy my top 5  interiors shops and wishlist

Etsy is a great place to choose artwork for your home, you can find some really interesting designs from many small businesses across the website, I love the designs from The poster studio, and have my eye on one or two.

My kitchen is a room that really could do with a face lift but funds mean that's not an option, but I have found a way to brighten things up, without spending a fortune. That is to transform the 90's dated fruit tile border that runs around my small kitchen with custom made tile transfers from Wallgenie. They have loads of designs and will happily make transfers in a custom size for you, if you have odd sized tiles like me.

You guys know I love a candle or two, and Etsy is a great place to pick up gorgeous handmade candles. I am currently lusting after the hand poured soleil candle from the Nest candle co, the Vanille one sounds incredible to.

I hope you found something that caught your eye, I am literally obsessed with Etsy right now and keep adding bits to my favourites list.

Be sure to let me know if you buy anything of my list, or if you can recommend a great shop to me, then please do.

Magical four seasons hydrangea
Gifted plant
We have a relatively small garden, the main area for seating is brick weaved and we have a raised area around the edge constructed with railway sleepers and topped with gravel. This means the garden is fairly low maintenance and requires no lawn mower, hooray! 

To add colour and interest I have planted a variety of pots and have a few garden ornaments, bird feeders, and hanging baskets dotted around. The latest addition to the garden is this pretty perfect magical hydrangea. I already have a couple of hydrangeas in my collection, I think they are such attractive plants and are easy to grow in pots. 

Magical four seasons hydrangea

What's different about this magical hydrangea is this gorgeous colour way, the Amethyst blue flowers from May to November, changing colour throughout the season starting pale, travelling through blue and into an Autumn red at the end of the season.  
The magical Hydrangea has been grown in a nursery with care to ensure a strong plant able to cope well with sun, rain and frost, meaning you have colour all year round. It's happy planted in a border or a pot, and just needs a bit of extra water on hot days especially if potted.

Magical four seasons hydrangea

The magical Hydrangea is available in different colours and is available to buy in garden centres across the UK and Europe.

Including Wyevale , Homebase and Notcutts, for a full list of retailers check Magical four seasons outlets.

New Cocoa a coconut superfood reviving hydrating mask from Dr Botanicals review
Gifted product 


Dr Botanicals is quickly becoming a brand I love for natural vegan skincare, You may remember my review of the Lemon superfood all-in-one rescue butter, which I love and use all the time on dry patches of skin on my body. Well I have been trying another new product from the brand this time Cocoa and Coconut superfood reviving hydrating mask and what can I say, I'm smitten. 

The Cocoa and Coconut reviving mask packs a punch when it comes to hydrating and reviving skin, the 100% vegan formula contains cocoa butter and coconut oil both great at boosting and restoring skin. The mask also boasts antioxidants to protect skin from free radical damage.

The mask is super quick and easy to use needing just 10 minutes to do its magic. The mask formula is cream like and is easy to spread over the face with know mess, then can be rinsed off with water to reveal smooth refreshed skin. 

The cocoa and coconut mask is a fresh product and must be used within three months and is best stored in the fridge. Making it perfect to use after a day in the sunshine. I have combination/oily skin and this worked great for me, and the instructions state its good for normal, oily, combination or dry skins.

The mask is available from the Dr Botanicals and at the time of writing this post is on offer at just £5.94

For the most part, when people think about moving home, they tend to imagine the disruption and stress it can cause, well I know I do. Moving remains one of the most stressful experiences a person can go through, and this tends to dominate our thoughts. 


However, while there is no denying that moving can indeed be stressful, it can also be expensive - which tends to make the whole process even more of a stressful time. If you are financially savvy and ensured you have found a cheap house for sale, bought it, and kept the associated costs as low as you possibly can, the sudden impact of actually upping sticks and moving into your new home can be extremely concerning. 


There are, however, ways that the costs of moving can be managed or even outright reduced; here’s what you need to know… 

Consider DIYing as much of your move as possible 

When looking to keep moving costs manageable, avoiding the use of a moving company is always a good choice. While professional movers can help keep stress levels to a minimum, Doing it Yourself is usually preferable when it comes to keeping the cost down.. 

How much you are willing to DIY depends on a number of factors, including how far you will be moving - longer moves tend to be trickier to self-manage, so professional help may be beneficial in these instances. However, if you’re moving a relatively short distance, then you may find that hiring a truck to move boxes is far more affordable than working with a professional company. It’s always worth running the numbers and asking local movers for quotes before making your decision, but as a general rule, the more you can DIY the more you will be able to save. 

Thoroughly declutter every room of your existing house

When moving, pounds matter - both in terms of money and in terms of weight. If you’re working with professional movers, the more there is to move, the higher the price will be. Even if you are going to hire a truck to conduct the move yourself, the cost of petrol will escalate with every extra pound of weight you have to transport. 

As a result, you’ll need to declutter like you have never decluttered before if you’re planning to keep the costs of moving reasonable. You can set yourself rules, such as: “if an item hasn’t been used for six months, then it doesn’t make the move”. For items that don't make the cut, you can either sell these on auction sites, or on a social media marketplace , or donate to charity.

Host a packing party 

Asking friends and family to help pack boxes can give you the best of both worlds: you don’t need to hire a professional service, and you’ll also ensure that the packing process is as short and stress-free as possible. 

You can even make the process enjoyable by turning a day of packing into a “packing party”. Ask multiple friends and family members to help you out, crank the music, and provide a few inexpensive snacks and drinks to your helpers. The packing process should fly by incredibly quickly with this idea, so you’ll enjoy the benefits of professional-speed packing and will have had the chance to have a little fun with your nearest and dearest. 

Request free boxes 

Buying boxes solely for the purpose of moving can be super expensive, and wateful realistically, there’s very little reason to do so. For most items, free boxes are more than sufficient, and there are a variety of different places that will offer boxes for free. For example, supermarkets are usually a great place to start - simply call and ask if they have any boxes available for collection. 

If your local supermarket cannot help, then the internet is usually the best choice. Local freecycling groups can often be a great source of boxes so it’s worth posting an advert as soon as you know you have to move. Alternatively, consider local classified ads sites, and even auction sites will sometimes offer free boxes to anyone who is able to collect them. 

Lastly, you can ask your family and friends to keep hold of any boxes they receive in the lead-up to your move. Advise that the boxes can be stored flat for a few weeks so storing the box shouldn’t be too much of an inconvenience, and then you can reassemble them as needed. 

Make use of existing items as packaging materials 

When transporting delicate objects, packaging materials are essential - but they can also be expensive, not to mention rather bad for the environment. Thankfully, you do not need to actually buy packaging materials; you can simply use items that you already have available. 

For example, blankets and curtains can be great protective material for delicate items, as can old clothes (or clothes that you don’t mind being scrunched in a box), unused cleaning sponges, and even pet beds. As you will need to be moving these items anyway, using them for packaging purposes is a helpful two-for-one benefit. In addition, if you regularly shred documents, then store the shredded paper leading up to the move and use this to help add an extra layer of protection to your moving boxes. 

Finally, if you have any items that are particularly delicate and you feel can only really be packed into a box if they have “proper” packaging materials to protect them, consider eschewing a box for these items altogether. Instead, ask a friend or family member to transport the item on their lap on moving day, so there’s no risk of the piece falling or being damaged by close proximity to other items while in transit.

Realistically, moving is never going to be “cheap” - there will always be costs, some of which are inherently expensive, that will have to be met along the way. However, if you can keep the above in mind, you should be able to ensure you can keep the costs as reasonable as possible, so you can make the move and look forward to enjoying your new home with your finances still in relatively good health.

What I read in June


Another month has drawn to a close, how quick are the months flying by? And I've had a pretty good reading month, I  have enjoyed books from genres I never used to read, but have come to really enjoy, it just shows you, if you give a book a go, you may well find a whole new world to explore.

The Chocolate lovers diet - Carole Matthews ⭐⭐⭐

I picked this book up on a charity shop visit, and I really wanted to enjoy it. The premise being four women with a collective love of chocolate, who support each other through the trials and tribulations of their complicated love lives. The story follows Lucy and her three girl pals Nadia, Autumn and Chantel and their respective relationships. For me the characters lacked substance and the story lacked believability. It just didn't really do it for me.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone - Laini Taylor ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Once upon a time an angel and a devil fell in Love

It did not end well

I adored this book the first in a trilogy and the first time I dipped my toe into the genre of fantasy fiction, only to fall in love with a whole new world of storytelling. I have written a full review of Daughter of Smoke and Bone, check it out here

The Foyles bookshop girls (Kindle edition) - Elaine Roberts ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The book begins in 1914, London before the outbreak of world war 1. Three ordinary girls work in London's famous Foyles bookstore, that is  until the outbreak of war, when everything changes. The story follows how the war affects those left at home, and the part they play. It really highlights how terrifying it must of been for those at home, not only being worried sick about the men at the front, will your fiance, or brothers come home, but coping with lives being lost right there in London, as the country was bombed furiously by the Germans. How will relationships hold out, will your family survive.

Days of Blood & Starlight - Laini Taylor ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The second book in the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy.

Once upon a time, and angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a world free of bloodshed and war.

 This is not that world

Karou finally knows who she is, what she is, she has the answers she's always sought, but with that comes a truth she cannot bare and would do anything to undo. She loved the enemy and he betrayed her, and a world, her world has suffered for it. Karou must decide how far she is prepared to go to avenge her people. She and Akiva(the angel) or on opposite sides of an age old war. They are both fighting a battle, but can any hope be salvaged from the ashes of their broken dream?

I cannot wait to read the last in the trilogy, 100% recommend these books to anyone looking to venture into a new world.

Before the broken star - Emily R King ( gifted by Netgalley) ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Before the broken star is unlike any story I have read before. Everley Donovan is living on borrowed time, her clockwork heart has acquired her time but for how long? will she live to take vengeance on Markham the man who killed her family, and find out the secret that shrouds her very existence, why has Father Time allowed her to live, how did her clockwork heart come to prevail and keep ticking. Everley finds herself sentenced to time in a penal colony, she will do anything to track Markham and make him pay. Soon it becomes apparent that Markham is not who he seems and  Everley is forced to follow him on a quest to the otherworlds, but will she have chance to seek her revenge and will she find the reason for her existence.

Thanks for reading my what I read in June post, let me know if you have any recommendations ? Have you read a really great book lately? let me know in the comments.

What I Loved in June

June my birthday month is nearly over, and it's been a pretty good month, that included a trip to Harry Potter studios a birthday meal out, as well as birthday gifts.


What I've been watching 

This months box set of choice has been Killing Eve season 2, we loved season 1 and so far season 2 has lived up to the first. The acting is second to none and the storyline has us on the edge of our seats. Do you watch it ? 

What I've been loving

I was lucky enough to receive a kindle for my birthday and have enjoyed adding books to my library, and I signed up to Audible and have been listening to the mesmerising voice of Stephen Fry reading Mythos, tales of the Greek Gods and myths. I could listen to Stephen reading a shopping list tbh. 

Talking of books I have been reeled in by Laini Taylor's trilogy Daughter of Smoke and bone, and have read the first two books and I am hooked on the tales of Angels and Monsters. Not my usual kind of read, but this first taste of fantasy stories has my interest peaked and I can't wait to read more. Recommendations welcome!

I also received two Yankee Candles for my birthday the delicious Dark Berries and Cherry Vanilla. If you like fruity scents you will love these two, I recommend you give them sniff next time your in store. Perfect for lighting on these dreary wet evenings we've been having. What up with this weather? Summer where you at?
