Care For Your Clothes

Monday, December 31st, 2007

holistic-silk-coat-hangers.jpgDecorating the boudoir is an exciting, yet challenging experience. Great care must be taken with everything, from wall paper to wardrobe.

Why not hang your clothes with some Boudoir Clothes Hangers with Lavender? Not only will you be letting your clothes air, they will stay lavender fresh from the aroma gently released from the hanger. Practical and stylish, you can coordinate your clothes with specific coloured hangers such as blue, amethyst, bronze, black and jade to mention a few. Another benefit … lavender is supposedly a moth repellent which is great for your cashmere!

The boudoir clothes hangers are available at, priced at £14 so go ahead and ‘store with style’.

Shape Your Shoes In Style

shoe-strechers.jpgShoes can be so annoying when they loose there shape, begin to crease and generally age. You can slow down this process by simply investing in a good shoe cleaning care kit and some shoe trees that stretch the shoes back in to shape.

These wooden shoe trees available at Total Wardrobe Care are dainty, rich and luxurious. TWC have ‘revitalised a vintage Victorian design of shoes tree specially to fit these narrower toes’. The wooden toe will decrease the creases and the flexible spine covered in raspberry coloured silk satin with a bow will stretch the shoes to original fit.

Red Embroidered CushionIts always welcoming when your friends and family make an effort to decorate their home.

This Embroidered Cushion, now £15 down from £30 in burgundy is pretty and would look wonderful with deep coloured room décor such as midnight blues and purples.

Tefal Quick Cup Kettle

Thursday, October 18th, 2007

tefal-quickcup-home.jpgIf like me you tend to drink a hell of a lot of tea in one day then it must feel as though you spend half your life waiting for a kettle to boil. It also becomes very frustrating when you think you have time to make a quick cuppa in between an advert break and your favourite programme but then you end up missing vital parts as the kettle hasnt boiled in time!!

Well Tefal claim to have invented the revolutionary Quick Cup Kettle that could be the answer to our problems. Apparently this new super gadget can boil water in just 3 seconds and can also be used as water filter.

You fill this kettle up in the conventional way and the magic takes place at the touch of a red button. The water is heated instantly! No energy gets wasted on heating water you dont need or boiling water you dont use. The quick Cup actually claims to provide a 65% energy saving compared to normal kettles for all those people out there watching their carbon footprint.

Apparently more than 230 million cups of tea and coffee are drunk in Briton every day and if people heated only the water they needed, rather than full kettles, the country would save enough energy to power the entire nation’s street lighting – something for all to think aboout!!

So if you want instant hot water at the touch of a button thats a great time, energy and money saver then you currently find the Quick Cup kettle with £10 off at It will still cost you £49.99 but with all these great environmental implications its bound to worth it in the long run!!

Antiques Galore

Monday, October 8th, 2007

I love unusual and interesting vintage style furniture and gadgets not commonly found in many homes, and I’ve found After Noah to be the perfect supplier of such delights.

They started as a small antiques shop and have grown and developed into three boutiques based in prime London locations plus an on line shop. You can guarantee to find a blend of antique, vintage and contemporary furniture, toys, jewellery and gifts. When they stock everything from one-off furniture pieces to vintage bags its hard not to find something to suit your taste.

Eco Friendly Reusable Shopping BagSome of my favourite treasures found here include this Envirosax Red Floral Eco Friendly Reusable Shopping Bag. Its such a great design and provides the perfect reusable shopper. Its certainly supporting the eco-friendly movement to move away from the plastic carrier bag style shopper and costs a mere £5.50.

Pink & Ivory Acrylic TelephoneI also adore this Blush Pink & Ivory Acrylic Telephone for £85. Its quite pricey but I just think its so quirky and makes a great 60’s replica.

To find out what other treasures can be found just log on to or if you happen to be in London then pop in store.
