Post image for STILL EXPLORING LONDON

So SCP is one of those companies that really does not do them justice in that they are not just the shop, they manufacture and also do complete interior redesigns for clients. But what caught my eye, well just inside the door was some grow bags from Bacsac. I love a garden and think everyone […]

Post image for GORGEOUSLY GIRLY FURNITURE

A couple of weeks ago we were contacted by a company that wanted to let us know that they are a new company that produces the type of products they think would be perfect for our blog. When we first read the email, our first instinct was that it was a scam. Just like most […]

Post image for NAILS DOWN A BLACK SCOTCH?

We’re talking again people but this time it’s not the house paint we spoke about here, it’s the paint for the twinkling toes and jazz hands. As the girly-girl I can sometimes be, whether it’s summer or winter, I like to splash a bit of colour on the nails to brighten things up a bit. […]
