  1. Hello Oliver Bonas

    Posted on

    A colourful home decor wishlist

    I must be the last person on Earth to discover Oliver Bonas.  It all started in 1993 apparently.  The colourful tub chairs drew me into their shop in Cabots Circus recently.  I’ve already made a second visit whilst also stalking their website.  I've a feeling I know where my new favourite home decor shop is.

    Their homeware is fabulous; colourful, cool and eclectic.  I haven’t explored their clothing too much but their jewellery and patterned scarves are right up my street.  They also have the most wonderful range of books, activities and toys for toddlers so I have the perfect excuse to revisit for my daughter now.

    Hello Oliver Bonas: A colourful home decor wishlist

    I'm obsessed with these small wooden legged chairs in bright colours.  I can't imagine anyone can walk past their shop window without stopping to look at them.  The orange owl vase is very on trend - I keep seeing owls everywhere!  I've always been quite taken by orange.  I don't actually own a single thing that is orange, but I kind of fancy it as an accent colour in my living room at least once in my life.  I reckon some burnt orange textiles thrown about with a splash of bright orange will really create a warm toasty winter living room.

    The pixel cushion reminds me of Tetris!  I used to be in love with that game and could play it for hours on end.  The mushroom scarf is so quirky, it had to be included.  I sell some great printed scarves in my online shop too!

    I'm not sold on the pinky colour of the Moroccan style poof, perhaps for Bella's room, but I love the style.  If it were a darker version of that colour the bamboo bowl is painted with then I would snap it up, or a rusty orange, mmmmm

    Last but not least, the bamboo bowls!  I am so tempted to buy these.  That outer colour is just me.  I love the lightweightedness of these and would fill with fruit on the kitchen side or use as a salad serving bowl.

    These picks are my most favourite so far.  It really was hard to dwindle it down to these few as there really is an awesome choice.

  2. Review: Baggu Eco Friendly Shopper

    Posted on

    A spotty alternative to a plastic carrier bag

    It is one of my missions for 2014 to make sure we always remember our reusable shoppers.  This will stop us wasting plastic carriers, anywhere between 300-700 per year apparently... wow! It's a funny thing as when I was younger it was just 'hippies' who recycled and took reusable bags to supermarkets.  It just wasn't the done thing.  It's so silly really as we all should have been raised just dong these things.  I'm so pleased we will raise our children with these environmentally conscious things as being the norm.  Hopefully the future generation will nurture our planet and looking after it will be second nature.

    When growing up we never had a recycle bin.  The council didn't push recycling on anyone, let alone collect it from our residence.  We had a stash of carriers under the sink, but only incase we needed to take a PE kit to school or transport mucky trainers around.  We never took the back to the supermarket with us.  We just got new carriers when we were there.  It's pretty terrible really.

    I was very thankful to receive this fabulous Baggu bag from a friend for Christmas last week.  Reusable shoppers don't have to be boring at all!  I'm looking forward to them becoming the norm and everyone using them! 

    Maybe they should just ban plastic carriers altogether and force shops to only sell reusable ones made from recycled materials?

    Baggu Polka Dot Shopper

    The Baggu bags are designed to be as eco-friendly as possible producing minimum waste.  They are made from ultra strong material and double stitched to ensure they last for years and can carry up to a whopping 50 lbs.  The materials are ethically sourced, recycled or recyclable themselves and the bags are also ethically made.  Definitely all great reasons to purchase a Baggu shopper.

    I love the polka dot style and the fabulous bright blue colour.  They also sell a range of cool animal prints and bright block colours.
