We are beginning to see signs of Spring. The mornings are getting lighter, the evenings are lasting longer, and I’m starting to feel like I’ll soon be able to pack away my hat, scarf and gloves. I’ve also been thinking a lot about bringing Spring into our home and in the process came across this absolutely gorgeous Taransay bedding from bluebellgray.
Isn’t it just beautiful? It channels Spring perfectly with the floral print and beautiful colours and has shot right to the top of my March home wish list.

Sofia Loren once famously said, “Everything you see, I owe to pasta.” What an amazing sentiment. Pasta is one of my favourite foods and it’s an undeniably quick, healthy and filling meal, especially if you make your own sauce. And I’m about to show you exactly that, if you hop on over to AO at Home, where you can find my recipe for an authentic Italian tomato sauce. Do you make your own sauce? If so, how do you jazz it up?
Two weeks ago we sent out our wedding invites. I have been looking forward to sharing them with you for a while, as coming up with the idea wasn’t only great fun, but I got to work with my friend, and – I’m sure you’ll agree – very talented designer, Adam Wilson.
I had a very clear idea about how I wanted our invites to look, and in short, they had to focus on words. Words are how I make my living, words are why you’re here reading this blog and generally I am much better at writing down words than speaking them. Once I had decided on the concept, then came the hard part; turning nine years into more or less nine lines. But we did it, and as you can see, Adam did a fantastic job of making my words look beautiful.
Our invite tells our story. We’ve had such a lovely reaction from family and friends and I think it has already set the tone for what is sure to be a fantastic day. What do you think of our invites? I would love to hear your thoughts!
So it’s Valentine’s Day next Friday, and so far I’ve covered a super tasty Valentine’s Day breakfast, a candle that literally smells of romance and now I’m looking at gifts. Some people hate them, but I have a real love for hearts. I have a LOT of them at home; hanging from door handles, propped up against walls and sitting on the fireplace. I can’t get enough of them.
Now you know about my obsession with hearts, you can see why I was so excited when I saw these from Parlane. A steal at just £14.95 from John Lewis, this is the sort of gift that will last long after Valentine’s Day is over.

Eggs are one of my favourite foods. I rely on them for breakfast, lunch and dinner, which means I always have at least six eggs in the fridge at all times.
This is a breakfast favourite in our house. One for the weekend – it’s too tasty to rush this one before work – the herby eggs and bresaola work really well together, and what are scrambled eggs without a huge slice of toast to sit them on? You can find the recipe over at AO at Home.
