January Lush List

You know the drill; here comes my list of everything I’ve been lusting after this month πŸ™‚

Top of the list is this Hiraeth Cushion from Cardiff-based artist Cathryn Weatherhead. Hiraeth is another Welsh word that’s difficult to translate, but basically means homesickness tinged with grief or sadness over the lost or departed. It is a mix of longing and nostalgia, or an earnest desire for the Wales of the past. I could have done with one of these to cuddle when I was living in London!


I love a good pussy bow blouse, and this one from ASOS is on sale!

Quartz necklaces are lovely – carefree classy over plain tops and my favourite style of minimalist jewellery. Seasalt & Quinn have a lovely selection πŸ™‚


I want to try and wear more skirts this year and get out of my jeans and t shirt funk! This one from ASOS is on sale and I love the grid pattern.

This rope bracelet by AME Jewels over on Etsy is lovely.

The hubs and I are moving into our first house this year which means a whole new space to decorate! This mirror by Flux Glass would look great over a makeup table πŸ™‚

I was never really bothered about wearing rings, but since getting married I go out with a knuckle duster on each hand! I’ve been eyeing up (badum ha!) this ring from Blue Button Boho recently.

These Pegzini Family clothespins are too nice to use for laundry! But stick some magnets on the back and I bet they’d look great on the fridge or on an office magnet board.

Boring round cookies no more! I’m loving these mermaid tail ones by OneSweetChick.


Because sometimes I need reminding – by Farmhouse Printables on Etsy πŸ™‚

December Lush List

Etsy is my favourite place for a bit of online perusing. This is no secret. If I’m cwtched up on the sofa with my feet over the back and the iPad in my lap (I’m a weird sofa sitter, it has to be said…) then you can guarantee that I’m either mindlessly pinning food-porn on Pinterest, or I’m curating my massive wish list on Etsy. 

Just in case you’ve been on Mars for the last couple of years, Etsy is a global marketplace for handmade goods and it’s flipping brilliant. If you’re in the market for quirky or unique, particularly when it comes to presents, then Etsy’s where you need to be!
