September: A Month of Lovely

September: A Month of Lovely

It's been a super busy few weeks with getting the new AW17 issue of 91 Magazine to print, I'm SO excited for you to see it! It is definitely feeling much more autumnal right now and I'm quite enjoying wearing cosy jumpers and lighting more candles... here's what else has been making my month lovely...


Wintery foliage - I was actually working on a Christmas related feature for In The Moment magazine so was using this gorgeous eucalyptus, and it reminded me how much I love this kind of foliage in the house - in vases, made in to wreaths, even just taped to the wall! I will be stocking up on this in the coming months I'm sure. 

Candle love - I love candles any time of the year, but the darker mornings and evenings obviously call out for more of this comforting light. This little beauty is from Arum London - natural wax candles, hand-poured in London with super luxe branding. Mine is Fig and Cassis and smells divine. 

Copenhagen planning - I am VERY excited about my birthday trip to Copenhagen next week! I've wanted to visit Scandinavia for a long time, and it is just myself and the hubby going, so it will be wall to wall eating, sleeping and shopping - and this lovely book is going to tell us the best places to do those things! Well, we already know where we are sleeping - a lovely Air BNB in Frederiksberg - but otherwise we haven't made any plans. I just need to find some time to sit down and actually read the book! All Copenhagen tips welcome!

Plywood decor -  I am still totally obsessed with plywood. I've written about plywood bedrooms and I've shown you my plywood book shelf and I've got a plywood kitchen post coming up! I also added lots of plywood elements to Ruby's new bedroom. This lovely laurel leaf from LaLa Loves Decor is the latest addition and is so beautifully made - it'll be popping up in another bedroom makeover very soon! 

Happy and Co tea towels - There is something particularly pleasant about a product arriving in a drawstring bag. It's the small things in life, don't you think?! It does it for me anyway! :) Happy and Co design and make homewares in partnership with skilled craftspeople all over the world and also invest 10% of their profits into the Happy + Co Farm in Cambodia. This story along with the gorgeous monochromatic prints of these tea towels are making me particularly happy right now! They are certainly helping to make our 'in need of ripping out' kitchen look a bit more stylish! 

*thank you to Arum London, LaLa Loves Decor and Happy & Co for gifting me these lovely items.
