The team at Amara know that I love the current copper trend and invited me to pick and style some of their gorgeous homeware pieces. After scrolling their site for hours and creating a wishlist as long as my arm I finally whittled it down to a few items which I knew would add the finishing touches to my lounge. Here’s what I chose! Cushions and Candles I have way too many cushions but couldn’t resist adding this copper and grey one* to the mix. The metallic message written across it makes me smile as I know it’s supposed to…

Wait… I planned to do a Favourite Foodie Finds in September, how is it already halfway through October?! Oh well, at least that means that I get to do some photo styling with autumnal leaves – yay! Here are my Favourite Foodie Finds for October… (and September!) Snacks Snack time: an important part of the workday, some might say THE most important part. Recently snack time has been 9.45am because I’ve been nailing finding low calorie snacks that don’t compromise on taste, which means they call to me from my handbag. I’m not usually even hungry!
