What I Wore – My Chinese Silk Jacket
by

Silk JacketI went out to dinner with Jon, my Dad and Sis last week to a place in Swansea called Verve 37 (keep your eyes peeled for a review soon) so I thought it would be a good excuse for a little outfit posts. But as I didn’t think to take the pictures in the light before we went out, we had to make do with a few snaps inside, luckily the new house has some lovely white walls, perfect for outfit pictures. So here is what I wore. Continue reading

How to Create a Picture Wall on a Staircase
by

Gallery WallWhen we first saw the house, with all it’s white walls and open space we knew it would lend itself well to our design aesthetic and style. I had always loved the idea of picture walls on staircases, after seeing one many years ago on Pintrest. Sadly Jon wasn’t as convinced, he simply thought of the Osbourne’s home when thinking of them. Luckily he has since come round to my thinking and now we couldn’t be more happy. Continue reading

Beauty Review – Miss Patisserie Candle, Lip Balm & Milk Bath
by

Miss Patisserie I’ve been a big fan of Miss Patisserie for a while now, and with them being a local company that is even better in my books. I have reviewed a few of their items already, and even did an ‘Introducing’ interview with them when I first launched this blog. I met up with Jorge, one of the owners, a few weeks ago (in regards to my day job at the tourist office) and he brought along a few new items for me to try. So this is the first of the posts reviewing their new items, for this one I have tested out their Spearmint and Lime Soy Candle, Milk Bath and Rose Geranium Lip Balm. Continue reading

Technology Review – Apple iPod Shuffle Review
by

iPod Shuffle ReviewI have pretty much always had an iPod, in fact I’ve had the same one for 8-9 years and touch wood, it’s still going strong. I like the way the 30GB iPod video works with real buttons, none of this touch screen nonsense, so the iPod shuffle is like an old friend. Ok so it doesn’t have a screen but it has the familiar touch wheel with that reassuring click of its buttons.

Chantele was recently gifted an iPod Shuffle by Argos at the South Wales Bloggers Tea Party, so I thought I would have a test of it and give you guys an honest iPod Shuffle review, with what I think are the pro’s and cons of this tiny portable music device.

What I Wore – A Vintage Dress from Copenhagen!
by

Vintage DressI picked this vintage dress up at Wasteland Vintage Clothing shop in Copenhagen when we were there on our mini break a few weeks ago. It is a re-worked 1970’s/80’s vintage dress and it fitted me perfectly. I loved the high collar and the little buttons that run up the front of the top half, and it even came with the original belt. The photos don’t really show it that well, but it is a black fabric with cream, beige and grey spots all over it. Continue reading
