I hope you’re prepared for a brass overload because I may have gone a little crazy with my latest finds! As much as I love copper I’m pretty sure it’s going to fizzle out sooner or later – I like to think that brass will be in for a while (or at least I hope so now that I’ve invested in it so heavily!) Seriously, I’ve just redecorated my bedroom (post coming soon) and it’s full of little brass feature pieces. Rule to live by at the moment : if it doesn’t come in brass then it’s not essential. Which means everything I find in brass, I NEED. There’s a couple of none brass items linked incase you think I’m completely crazy…I’m not sure how many more brass items I can fit in my house… here’s to hoping I don’t buy anything else this month!

Discovering Holly’s House was a real find since she stocks so many of my favourite brands, including House Doctor, which is where these sweet brass office clips are from. Perfect for holding together the pages of the many calendars dotted around my home.

When in doubt, “What would Beyonce do?” Failing that, “What would Blair Waldorf do?” Either way, they’re both queens in my eyes, making these the most appropriate pencils in any situation. Paired perfectly with Hay’s gold tray.


I’ve been dying to get my hands on a set of Hay’s storage boxes for some time now and I managed to bag the last set from Holly’s House. I hear they are discontinued though, so if you’re a fan I’d try and hunt them down sooner rather than later before they are gone forever!

by lassen match box

Since I’m so obsessed with candles, it seemed totally justifiable getting a by Lassen matchbox cover. Yes I know it sounds ridiculous and completely unnecessary – and it is, but look at it! Let’s face it, in the history of match boxes there aren’t any pretty ones are there? And since I’m such a neat freak the matchboxes always have to be put away in a drawer because I don’t like them on show – now I no longer have this problem, the matches can stay out all day long for all I care. By Lassen have graphic patterned matchboxes that are made to fit inside the matchbox cover perfectly too. Anything brass gets my vote, plus it sits perfectly along side my gold alphabet candle votive. Don’t these make the sweetest gifts?! S stands for Silk in case you were wondering…

Probably my favourite of all my recent purchases is my gold pineapple ornament. The photo really doesn’t do it justice, it’s absolutely stunning in person, especially teamed next to this Ferm Living Brass Pencil Pot.

Since I’ve been travelling so much lately with work I invested in some new headphones, I was torn between the gold and the rose gold but since I have the rose gold iPhone, gold lost this time! I can’t rate these Rose Gold Happy Plugs enough, good quality, fashionable and comfortable. In-ear earphones are the only option for me as I really struggle with earbud earphones, I find that they make my ears sore after wearing them for a short while. In-ear are so much more comfortable. The Frends Layla rose gold headphones are next on my wish list…

I imagine that you are all brassed out so that is all for now! Have you had any brass finds recently? I’d love to see!

I’ll be in Frankfurt all weekend so I wish you all a Happy Valentine’s x
