Amber Elise Prints

 A few weeks ago I told you all about Project Jonas HQ which can be read here.  Having been on-going for a two months now and starting to move into its third month there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  Which can only mean one thing – home accessoires!  While im not much of a trinket collector (only fridge magnets and the odd vase/ ornament here and

Hobbs Christmas Popup

Strolling down Marylebone high Street you really get the feel that Christmas has arrived.  The lights are up and shining bright, all the shops have large Christmas window displays and Hobbs Christmas Popup store is open for business.  If like me you get irritated with herds of shoppers then quiet Marylebone high Street is the perfect spot for a pre Christmas drink and shop. Last night I was lucky enough

One-pot Cooking with Le Creuset

As the days get shorter and the nights get colder there is nothing I love more than tucking into a comforting meal followed by a nice glass of red wine (open fire optional). At the start of the month (much to Mr J’s dismay) I made us leave the comfort of our sofa on a Sunday afternoon and make the journey to the Le Creuset store in Muswell Hill to

Well Project Jonas Hq has become what is the never ending list for home improvement.  Having moved into our new home 18 months ago, we were quite blind as to

Snap It, Print It, Frame It!

When was the last time that you printed a picture? If like me you cant remember or even answer that question then it’s time to copy those images from your digital camera onto a USB stick and head to your nearest printers.   I’m going to be a bit nostalgic here, but why do we not print any pictures anymore or have any photo albums?  My parents house is full

They say home is where the heart is, and after just over a year in our new home the Jonas’s renovation project has finally begun.  While the budget is still up for review, the ‘wish lists’ are in full swing.  So for the first of my home posts I thought that I would share my favourite picks from the French Connection Home Collection: Velvet Tie Dye Cushion £45 Buy Here

Happy 21st Birthday Oliver Bonas!

Oliver Bonas is by far one of my all time favourite stores, who knew that they have been around for 21 years! It’s quirky, fun, bright and individual. Their products don’t follow the typical high street trends, but ooze great style and design.  Whether its a birthday present, some luxurious (reasonably priced) hand wash or simply a treat for myself I always find the perfect gift.  So when I was
