Afternoon to ya all. With Christmas fast approaching I am sure all of you are far more organised that I am. Not bought a single Christmas present yet. I am fanatically browsing web in hope of finding something for somebody and everybody. Christmas shoppers will apparently spend a fortune today, in what is dubbed The Mega Monday. At least that what I’ve read online and in paper last night. I do have a few suggestions for all of you late birds who don’t have time to go out and browse the shops. Here are a few online shops I have used before and was very satisfied with the service and products.
One really cool website I like is Fab. They have a range of cool presents starting from this Lamp for him and this quirky suitcase for her. They are both on sale now so hurry up.
I love notonthehighstreet online shop too. These coasters got my attention and they are not much at all. £12.
I also love this mustache door mat costing only £25 and I think its a great present for any friend who did a Movember thing.
Last is Very where you can find up to 50% sale at the moment and this onesie really cough my eye.

It has been almost exactly a year since we visited South Africa. What a beautiful country. If there is a place I can/could live or re locate tomorrow it would be South Africa( in wine region of course.) To be more specific in a beautiful town called Franschhoek. I have already shared a lovely buy from South Africa on this blog before and now I have another one. My write-on chalk mugs. I’m not a morning person and yes, I am a grumpy gruffalo when I’m trying to wake up. Hence the love for these mugs. They make me smile. I love leaving little notes to my husband and vice verse. It is a game we love to play. The joys of little things in life… It’s entertaining for our friends as well…leaving them notes. Dirty notes.
I did a bit of research where to get them from in England and I found them in a few places. Prezzybox has them and so does Daniel store. A great pressie for Christmas or what???

I have been spying on this chandelier from Graham and Green for more than a year now. If a chandelier can have a stalker than this beauty has. Me! Soon, very soon my love we will be together and you will hang proudly in my white & pink kitchen.
This shop is amazing. I was first introduced to Graham and Green by one of my lovely clients after a photo shoot in Primrose Hill, London. I felt in love instantly and bought a lovely flower aged ceramic vase. I don’t think they have her any more but I did found some similar flower pots on their menu.
Another purchase are these three vintage heart wire baskets. I keep them on my kitchen bay window and you can see more about them in this recent blog post. I use them as a storage for lemons, potatoes, onions and garlic… I like to have my fruit & veg displayed nicely.
P.S. I am also in love with this Jeeves & Wooster’s pendant lights.
Happy Tuesday folks, X Ines
