Ask Her Friends

Ask Her Friends October Panel

As fans of both shopping and lists, we are delighted to say that we have now joined the Ask Your Friends bloggers panel! Along with some of our blogger faves, every month we will be picking our top pieces from the Ask Her Friends website in order to help those who perhaps don’t have the same ability to spend hours online scrolling through websites shopping. We definitely have no such issue.

This month was an Autumnal theme and we had a great time searching for the perfect  pieces and, after a healthy narrowing down session, went for the following….

1) Hidden Heart Mittens by Eka. How sweet is that heart detail? Now if only it was cold enough to wear them!

2) The rather dapper Sherlock Brooch – And Smile  by the super lovely Tigerlilly Quinn which shows a seasonally stylish Sherlock ready to take on the elements. Oh, Benedict it would be an honour to pin you to our lapels….ahem, moving on.

3) Comes in the form of a Jo Malone French Lime Blossom Home Candle by The Collection because nothing says Autumn like a nice cosy candle and lime blossom just sounds divine!

4) We were instantly rather taken with Alice’s Teapot Necklace by By Emily and can just imagine it looking lovely worn with a nice mustard jumper! 

5) Finally we went for the incredible Fashionista Biscuit Tin by Biscuiteers which possibly isn’t particularly Autumnish but seeing as our Saturday nights at this time of year are now mostly spent in front of the TV chomping on sweet treats with Strictly on, it felt appropriate to us!

We recommend heading over to the Ask Her Friends website as they are running a competition to win a £50 gift voucher (hello biscuits!) simply for voting for your favourite panelist’s choices! We even promise not to be offended if you don’t choose us….however Sherlock will definitely judge you.

She and Home: Blog Club

Last night I attended the latest Blog Club! If you cast your mouse mind back to January, you may recall that Blog Club gives bloggers a happy caked-filled space to discuss, improve and share their various blogging experiences and tribulations IRL. I know, there really is life outside of the Internet after all.

Blog Club is run by the excellent double act of Hayley (Bonjour Blogger) and Sophie (Saints on a Plane) who totally excelled themselves in arranging for Trunki to host this meetup! Not only did Trunki provide the greatest selection of snacks I have ever seen (skittles and chips ahoy) it was a fantastic opportunity to have a nose around their seriously fun office.

This was a particularly inspirational evening with both Charlotte from Black Heart Creatives and Fritha from Tigerlilly Quinn speaking about their personal experiences of blogging and business. They are certainty two very successful (and lovely) ladies so it was a joy to hear how they had gone about crafting their paths and a fabulous opportunity to pick up some top tips for the future.

It was also, as always, a great chance for a natter with new faces and a catch up with old ones. Plus we all got to go on a massive slide! Told you Trunki was seriously fun….

…..I am really going to resent walking down the stairs at work so much now.

Anyhoo, it truly was an excellent evening and one which made me feel very grateful to be part of the blogger community and to have such a talented group of ladies on my doorstep. Plus, you know, SLIDE!
