Shopping for mothers day with TK Maxx

As you will all know by now I LOVE TK Maxx and Homesense! They are the type of place where you can go regularly but always find something new. TK Maxx is the perfect place to shop for mothers day so when they asked if I would like to head into store and pick out some pieces for my mum I jumped at the chance. There is a wide range of home ware and goodies to pamper! 

My Mum is actually heading to Cuba! so I thought I would stock her with the perfect holiday accessories. I was able to pick up some designer pieces for a fraction of the RRP price - The sunglasses were only £12,99 and I am sure my mum will fall in love with them and look super stylish exploring the pretty streets of Havana.

Now if your mum isn't heading to Cuba there are lots of other goodies you could treat her too. The candle section is insane! I actually picked one up for myself on this visit. There is also a really large beauty/pamper section - I think it would be lovely to fill a little box full of goodies! Like a little pamper hamper :) 

TK Maxx suits all budgets and you are able to find some really unique one off pieces, defiantly worth a visit to pick up some special pieces for your mum and maybe some sneaky treats for yourself!

What I got for valentines day - Olivia Burton

This year I was truly spoilt for valentines! We usually dont do anything special or buy crazy gifts but this year George went a little crazy! He said he wanted to treat me as I never treat myself and he is proud of how hard I have been working. You will see a very clear theme here and that is BEES! I now own so many bee things our house is covered! I am not complaining as they are my fav.

The Olivia Burton watches are incredibly beautiful, I did have my eye on the one George bought for me for a while - It has a 3D square face which encapsulates the little golden bee complete with gold mesh strap. Super exited to wear this and it looks so lovely layered up with the dainty bee bracelet, you can see from the other close up photos the incredible attention to detail! swoooonnnn . The sweetest little ring which of course features a bee. He also picked up the little black and gold bee mirror, pineapple key chain and the adorable Bee jewellery box so I can keep all my bee treats safe.

I hope you all loved seeing these beautiful pieces, I am super excited to start wearing them, a big thank you to George!! 
I also embroider and sell my own bee clothing/accessories which you can check out here.

New year New office - Makeover

2016 was a very busy year for my brand, working from home can be very difficult! as the business grows I have gradually taken over most of the rooms in the house. The little room was our junk room really! so we thought it would be a good idea to make use of the space and create a little office area, where we can draw out new designs and also a place I can keep all my accounts in order. I have a studio for sewing which has doubled up as a stock room and also spend the majority of my time working in the living/dining room due to the fact the embroidery machine couldn't fit up the stairs! I think this extra space will help me organise my time better as I can section off parts of my day working in different areas. As I currently do all my own book work it is important for me to keep on top of it as it can easily spiral into a mountain of receipts!

Its a small space but I felt with the right layout it could be a well used room. I wanted the room to be clean and bright so opted for white walls and furniture - just bringing in accents of colour and personality through the styling of accessories and artwork, storage was key so we opted for the ikea boxed unit and office draws.

I am in love with this new space! What do you think?

DIY christmas wreath with Tkmaxx and homesense

Every year I like to make my own wreath and this year with the help from Tkmaxx and homesense this is what I created! I popped into homesense to pick up some bits and pieces I could add to my plain wreath - There is so much to choose from and I love how the decorations are organised into each colour. Of course I headed to the blue and silver section!

I choose a mix of decorations that I thought worked well together. I also found the wreath holders which were only £5! 

To make your wreath you can put together the base yourself or just buy a plain one from a garden centre or even pick up a fake one (homesense/tkmaxx) do plenty. My auntie made up my base and then I just used wires to attach the decorations.

I really love my wreath this year!
What do you think? I would love to see any christmas DIYs you have done this christmas.
