Holiday Gift Guide - Cosy Gifts

It's time for my second gift guide, I really hope you enjoyed the first one. We all love getting cosy at this time of year, log fire or not. After my minimal gift guide I was craving some warm and snuggly gifts. These warming presents are classics and will go down a treat no matter who you're giving them to. These suggestions are all very hygge inspired, from bathrobes to gourmet hot chocolate. It's time to put your feet up and get cosy.

Holiday Gift Guide - The Minimalist

Looking back at last year's gift guides posts it seems that I was a lot more organised and already had them all published by now. Well here's the first one of 2017 anyway, and it's a good one! I'm aiming to have three written up in time for you to buy gifts if you like what you see. This guide is for the minimalist in your life, someone who loves well designed, cool and simple products.

There's also a sneaky part of me hoping that my friends and family will read these guides and think "oh cool I'll buy Nancy that". You hear that guys?

My Favorite New Fashion Finds

Today I'm taking fashion. It's been a little while since I talked about clothes on the blog (probably because my mind had been a little pre-occupied with wedding-related sartorial decisions!) so here I am to collect together a few trends I've been loving recently.

It's the season of velvet, slouchy knits and ankle boots and I have found some wonderful classic winter pieces as well as a few slightly stranger items that I think are just as cool.

Styling Up a Small Sofa

As you may know, I live in a very small flat. We have a bedroom, bathroom and an open plan kitchen and living room which is also where my work area is. It can be quite a challenge to squeeze in everything that we need and want. Our latest big change to the living room is the sofa, what a difference a stylish seating area can make!
