The Kitchen Wishlist #6 | Easing In To Autumn

We’re here, we’ve arrived, jump on board this chilly train to autumn-ville. It’s gonna be quite a ride this year. I always love Emma Bridgewater, particularly in the colder months. Perhaps its because this is the time of year we most want to feel homely, and she does homely so very well. These owl plates are my favourite from her autumn collection. I pretty much despise Starbucks for a multitude of reasons. I’m not saying I’ve never grabbed a coffee in there before, but it’s definitely not my favourite place. That said, I really want to try a pumpkin spice latte. I feel like this pumpkin spice syrup would solve all of my problems at once here. This season, I want to be one of those people that stirs delicious drinks with cinnamon sticks, and adds them to the packaging of cute “just because” gifts. I’m probably not going to do either of those things, but a girl can dream. I don’t really have the kind of kitchen that you can hang things in, but …

The Kitchen Wishlist #4 | Afternoon Tea Week

I bloody love afternoon tea. Today is the day I embark upon my first proper homemade one, and hopefully you’ll be reading all about it by tomorrow – I really can’t wait. In the mean time, I thought you might like to see the five things I’d love to have at my afternoon tea table. I’ve steered clear of anything too quaint or sickeningly British because I’m sure you’ll see enough of those this week. Let me know what your favourite is in the comments. Oh, and tell me, if you could go to just one shop to buy lots of bits for afternoon tea, where would it be? I’m forever looking for new gorgeous kitchenware places to lust after. I know it would be terribly un-dainty to drink afternoon tea from something so bulky as this neko cat mug from Anthropologie, but isn’t it beautiful? We’ve talked about their Alice in Wonderland range before, but this plate from Whittard was too darling to leave off the list, I’m a sucker for blue and white in …

Step into Christmas with me |Baking Reindeer Cookies

Hello festive friends! Today I want to share with you the best cookie invention you’ll see today (maybe even this week, maybe even this year). These piñata cookie cutters from Lakeland caught my eye a while back; reindeers filled with sweeties, what more could you ask of a Christmas cookie?! You can pick them up for £4.99 online or in-store. When it’s not Christmas time, these cutters would be perfect for donkey cookies! Use pretzels to create reindeer antlers and magic beans or other cake decorations for the surprise in the centre. Shop bought fondant is a must, ain’t nobody got time for homemade. Oh, also.. You all need this plate in your life. It’s my favourite from Emma Bridgewater’s Snowstorm collection and I just had to buy it for my Mum who has an intense fondness for hares. Isn’t it lovely! Pick it up here for £19.95 – if they get more stock in, that is.. Have you done anything festive today? Tell me all about it in the comments! Don’t forget to go like …
