A spring clean.

The middle of March, the slightest whiff of Spring on the horizon, and the desire to deep clean and sort out every corner of the home reaches fever pitch..!   Who am I kidding? I’ve been itching to spring clean ever since the start of the year, but now that the turning back of the clocks is imminent, and daylight is starting to reach the furthest flung corners of the house again, it’s finally time.

It’s dinner party season!

Is there anything more exciting than planning a dinner party at home with your nearest and dearest, Come Dine With Me style?  Minus the excruciating scoring-in-secret part that is!    If the Channel 4 reality series is your go-to guilty pleasure as well (couples edition, of course!), then you’ll be just as excited as I am that dinner party season has arrived once again.

And by never really, I mean, I’ve actually had a severe aversion to it that I can trace directly back to the hideous mish-mash of wallpapers that adorned the walls of my childhood home that still give me nightmares to this day.

A clean sheet.

If there’s one thing I always advise investing in for your home, it’s good quality bedding. Soft, relaxed, comfortable and, with the launch of John Lewis & Partners’ new exclusive collaboration with contemporary fashion brand Mother of Pearl, now beautifully sustainable too.   I only recently discovered Mother of Pearl through the early stages of developing a capsule wardrobe, but immediately fell for their clean lines, elegant tailoring and statement detailing, coupled with their commitment to transparency across their supply
