Everyone loves a bar cart, right?! Whilst I might not have room for dedicated bar cart, I’m planning on squeezing in a bar cart-esque tray on the DIY fauxdenza I’m putting in the dining room.

  2. Hay cap bottle opener, £9 from
  3. Urban Bar Gold Teardrop Stirring Spoon, £12.41 from LoveTiki
  4. Wooden muddler, £2.79 from
  5. Gold striped straws, £2.95 from Rockett St George.


Longer hemlines are featuring everywhere in the Spring look books and as someone who is pretty tall (I’m almost 5′ 10″) with a long body this is a seriously welcome trend.

I generally find a lot of tops just aren’t long enough for me and either hit that super unflattering point that makes you seem wider than you are, look like you’ve shrunk your top in the wash or that you got a little confused about what the cropped top trend actually meant. Even if you’ve not that particular set of problems to deal with, a longline top is just a super flattering, easy to wear look. Here are some of my current favourites…
