Christmas makeover with Marks & Spencer

For me, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without Marks & Spencer. I mean, is it even December if you haven’t browsed the festive isles of this go-to store picking up treats and decorations ready for the big day!? I’ve given my living room a makeover with some fabulous *items from M&S. This year I’ve gone with a…

Christmas with Hobbycraft

When my daughter Ava asked me if we could buy some air drying clay to make some Christmas decorations, my heart did a little happy whoop. Memories of pottery at school came flooding back, after a quick browse of our go-to craft supplier Hobbycraft, we were set to go with our chosen project. Air drying…

Getting cosy with Baa Stool

Say hello to the newest addition at Little House In London, my sheepskin dressing table stool of dreams, Ffleur. Isn’t she just lovely? She comes in 18 different colour ways, I have chosen this stunning teal. I sat on her for about an hour when she first arrived. I mean, I couldn’t have been more comfy,…

Get Your Hygge On This Autumn

This Autumn, you will mostly find me padding around in fluffy slippers, lighting evocative scented candles, switching on ALL the twinkly fairy lights and generally revelling in the most cosiest of seasons. Last year, I discovered (along with the rest of Instagram) the phenomenon that is Hygge. Pronounced ‘hoo-ga’, it’s a Danish and Norwegian word…

The Power of Yellow

Someone once told me, that if you look at the colour yellow for more than 10 seconds it makes you smile. Why not try it with this square below… worked for me! How about you? In the natural world, yellow is the colour of sunflowers and daffodils, lemons and bananas, canaries and bees. And let’s…

BBQ Days

Having just returned from a beautiful sunny week away in Cornwall, we’re keen to keep the holiday vibes going for as long as possible here at Little House. The hubster (Alex) had been very eager to BBQ a (huge) Ribeye Tomahawk Steak, so after said piece of meat was in the bag from our local butchers,…

Picnic fun in the garden

With school officially out here at Little House, we’re busy making plans for the summer holidays. Garden fun is always top of the list, we love our little city garden and treat it as another ‘room’ in the summer months. Marks & Spencer recently got in touch to see if I wanted to feature* some…

Laura Ashley Summer Revamp

I think most of you will agree, but there’s something delightfully ‘grown up’ about shopping at Laura Ashley. When we bought our home 20 years ago, it was one of the first places I headed, to kit myself out with candles, picture frames and a posh throw. I can often be found at the weekends…

From grooming kits to chocolate treats, I’ve put together a few fabulous finds from small independent businesses to help you on…

Spring Cleaning

Ok, so I know this may sound a bit strange, but I love a bit of spring cleaning. I find it very therapeutic and the finished cleaning session always ends with me lolling around in the room(s) feeling totally smug and cleansed. Then, lighting of a scented candle and scornful looks to all who dare…
