Now, they’ve launched the incredible La Gioiosa Prosecco Rosé DOC Millesimato 2019. It’s certainly bringing some pink sparkle into the winter months that lie ahead.  With a pomegranate nuance edged with soft pink reflections, the nose is subtle and fresh, offering hints of small red fruits with notes of elegant rose and pomegranate.  On the palate, it is silky and full, presenting a very pleasant balance between the fruity and floral notes.

Scandiborn is a brilliant online destination for the finest in Scandinavian children’s interiors and baby nursery furniture, including wooden baby toys and doll house kits and more. When my daughter was born I found there to be a real gap in the market for minimalist design and one that championed the Montessori practices. That’s how I initially discovered Scandiborn. Today they house some of my favourite kiddie brands including Cam Cam Copenhagen and Mia’s favourite dinnerware from Liewood. This luxury brand is probably on the radar of all new mums and mums to be!

I’m so excited to announce that we’ve teamed up to giveaway a £100 gift card to one lucky winner in the next prize pot!

In a world of mass production where fashion is the second largest world polluter, it’s refreshing to find new businesses that produce hand crafted and luxury customised pieces sustainably. I recently discovered Roxluna; an Irish brand that creates beautiful jewellery inspired by travels in California and beyond. Former Interior Architect Emily Mackeogh uses her love of travel, design, culture and most importantly people as its driving force. Using a method of ancient wax carving, many of the pieces in the collection have been hand carved by Emily. All of their solid gold carved pieces have been hallmarked with their special stamp in Dublin Castle too. I absolutely adore their initial necklaces and there’s so much more to pour over online. Check out their Sanskrit Good Health gold necklaces!
