Sass and Belle Vintage Wire Heart Photo Holder

Hi girls! I'm hooked on Sass and Belle at the moment, their beautiful homewares set my heart all of a flutter! I picked this lovely Vintage Wire Heart Photo Holder up for my new pad recently so I could show off my favourite pictures and cards.
I looped a length of ribbon through it so I could hang it on the wall of my living room!

This is the large cream one and is only £9.95, you can order it online and I think it would make a perfect pressie (to yourself!)

What do you think? I love the way it displays lots of memories in one place! Do you have anything from Sass and Belle? What do I need to get next?

Home is where my cushions are!

Hi girls! If you follow me on twitter you'll have seen me twittering on about moving house for the last week or so, I'm now in my lovely new apartment, quite a lot of my life is still in boxes but it's definitely feeling like home! One thing that I had to unpack straight away was my cushions so I could get them on my Lazy Boy sofas (which I LOVE!). Us girls love our cushions and I thought I'd show you some of mine!

On this sofa I have two 'Value Cream Cushions' from Homebase, £4.99 each and  two 'Luxury Velvet Stripe Cushions' in Chocolate also from Homebase, £16.99 each.

There's a regal touch with this gorgeous 'Henry Crown Embroidered Cream Cushion' from my Laura Ashley, £36

On this sofa, I have two more of those fab 'Value Cream Cushions' from Homebase £4.99 and I'm flying the flag with a Union Jack cushion from Past Times. I don't think this is available any more but they have similar designs on their website. I love a spot of heritage!

Hope you enjoyed a peek at what I've got in the new pad! Do you love cushions as much as me? It's a girl thing!

New Puppy!

Hi girls! If you follow me on twitter (and if not, why not? All the cool kids do!) you might have seen we have a new addition to the family here at Heartbreaker House! Captain Ralphie is my sister's new West Highland Terrier who is about 10 weeks old now! Having recently moved back and working from home I've been looking after him! He's an absolute joy, so well behaved and playful!

Our kitchen is overrun with pooch toys and he's been spoiled with some treats from Pet Kingdom at Harrods which I couldn't resist when I went down to The Capital last week!

Do any of you have a puppy at the moment! Leave me your pup tips in the comments if you do!

Bettys Macaroons

Being an afternoon tea loving girl from Yorkshire I'm a regular in Bettys tearooms, whether the occassion is dinner for two or tea with a group of my friends.

lemon, raspberry, pistachio and chocolate
Bettys recently added macaroons to their tempting menu of handmade treats and I picked up a box last week!

As expected they were completely delicious, I think handmade macaroons from Bettys are my new edible weakness! A box of these delightful treats would be the perfect gift!

Almost too pretty to eat!
You can pick up a box of six macaroons from Bettys for £7.50. Which sweet treats have you been indulging in lately?

Debbie Reynolds - The Auction

Hi girls! If, like me, you're totally enchanted by Old Hollywood you'll be facinated by next month's auction of Debbie Reynolds incredibile collection of costumes as worn in the movies by the stars of the silver screen!

In the words of the lady herself "There is magic in every thread, button and bow"

I curled up yesterday with a cup of tea to peruse the auction catalogue and the star lot is number 354 the iconic 'Subway Dress' as worn by Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch.

This gorgeous piece is expected to sell for $1,000,000 - $2,000,000
The auction also features costumes worn by some of my favourite actors and actresses including Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Gregory Peck and of course, Debbie Reynolds herself!

If you fancy browing the fabulous lots you can skip along this way to download the action catalogue!

Kate Moss Exhibition, Paris

Hi girls! It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Kate Moss so when I saw on the fab Prince Cassius' blog that an exhibition of photographs of the supermodel began this week in Paris I was very excited!

I'd love to embark on a Parisian getaway to see the exhibition which will feature pictures of gorgeous Kate taken by various top photographers.

Would you be interested in seeing the exhibition?

Wheat-Free for Lent

Hi girls! After indulging in pancakes yesterday today is the first day of Lent, when it's traditional to give up an indulgence for 40 days and nights.

Rather than opting for the ever popular chocolate this year I've decided to go wheat-free for Lent! If you've been following Clare's Diary of a Desperate Dieter series on Big Beauty Blog you'll know she's been seeing a fab personal trainer in Leeds from PT Health called Darren who's encouraged her to go wheat-free on the Paelo or 'caveman' diet. I've been popping over to see Darren with her and he's a huge inspiration to eat healthily! She's doing so well with the diet and I'm going to support her by going wheat-free for Lent.

I'm not going wheat-free to 'diet' or lose weight but I'm the kind of girl who always has that 3pm slump if I have a sandwich for lunch but I'm always full of energy if I opt for wheat-free sushi. Hopefully ditching wheat long-term will lead to more energy and a more varied diet!

What are you girls giving up for Lent or have you given up giving up?
