Hello Friday! Whoop. Today has been great. Fun team day at work + leaving early in the sun + drinking wine and making dinner with Mr J = Happy me. Here are my favourites this week… 1. Spots & stripes place setting Could it be any more perfect? I’m already thinking this has DIY written […]

A few of my favourite pins – 7

What a week! The first five-dayer in what seems like forever is finally over and I’m pooped. I’m totally ready for bed – is 7pm too early for a 30-something? Can’t we just all agree to work four-day weeks in future? They’re much more fun. I’ve been a busy bumble bee this week, so no […]
