The perfect dining table and chairs

The perfect dining table and chairs!

cult furniture

So I recently moved into my first home with my boyfriend and have had the most fun decorating and buying home decor.

Something I haven’t shared before on my blog is that I am actually massively into interior design. I LOVE it.  I honestly could happily spend every day just going home shopping and buying new bits and pieces for the house. I’m definitely more of a soft furnishings kind of interior designer though, I do not know much about DIY or actual decorating!

I am going to slowly be introducing a lot more home content onto my blog, youtube and instagram as I slowly get the house finished to how I want it before I show it.

If you would like to see a sneak peek, then watch my move in vlog > here   

Anyhow, I thought I would kick start the home content with a blog post featuring one of my favourite home pieces that I picked up – my dining table and chairs!!

My chairs are from Cult Furniture  

If you haven’t heard of Cult furniture and you are into home design, then thank me later!  They have the most amazing selection of modern and beautifully designed furniture at a super reasonable price as well.

I really wanted something a little bit different with my chairs and these were the perfect mix of a classic simple design contrasted with funky legs.

I have very much stuck to a white, marble and gold theme within my lounge decor so when I saw these chairs I was instantly in love.

Aside from looking beautiful, the chairs are actually really comfortable too.

I paired the stylish chairs with a simple glass dining table, as the chairs have quite a lot going on I didn’t want the table to take the spotlight from them!

I always ensure I have a beautiful bouquet of flowers in the centre of the table as it really brings the room to life.

I love that the gold legs from the chairs also compliment my bar cart perfectly!

LONDON FASHION WEEK X IQOS AT THE ROSEWOOD HOTEL

London Fashion Week: My stay at the Rosewood hotel in collaboration with IQOS

So usually I would be absolutely dreading the stress of fashion week, the trawling around London and the early and late commute home – but this LFW I absolutely did it the way you should thanks to IQOS  (heated tobacco technology)

IQOS provided me the most beautiful room at the Rosewood Hotel (I had literally wanted to stay here for years since I first visited it!) during London Fashion Week which was walking distance to all the shows so perfect location and just the best place ever!

The Rosewood is literally the grandest most beautiful hotel, even if you go to the gorgeous bar just for a drink I really recommend visiting it, you would not be disappointed.

My room was insane and the marble bathroom was to die for (blogger heaven!)

The rooms were IQOS friendly. If you guys smoke but don’t know about IQOS then you’ll be glad you’ve read this post.

It uses heat technology rather than burning tobacco, which gives you the true taste of tobacco with no smoke, no ash and a lot less smell. One of the things that I hated about normal smoking was the smell that can get left on you, whereas with IQOS your hair or clothes don’t smell of smoke at all afterwards! So I was fashion week ready! The device is super sleek and comes in a variety of colours.

First and foremost, Happy New Year!

I do regret to say I have certainly been neglecting my blog as of late (the past few months). I must say my focus has been predominantly on my Instagram and Youtube (both named Toula Rose if you want to check them out). However I will be uploaded a lot more regularly on here this year!

So with that said, what better way to kick start the New Year than with a blog post about my favourite thing… hand bags!

Today’s blog post is all about an amazing designer bag brand.. Teddy Blake New York.

They create just the most beautiful, well made leather bags. With a range of mini size to functional large shopper totes, you are sure to find a bag that suits your accessory needs.

I opted for a mini Eva Croc bag in this stunning green colour. I always wanted a croc effect bag and I love that it’s patent, as I do not have any other patent bags and it makes this one feel special to me.

I am a complete sucker for a mini sized bag, I think they are so feminine and such a statement accessory! This bag has a shoulder strap so you can wear it cross body as well, which is how I would usually opt to wear it. teddy blake eva croc

Another thing I love about Teddy Blake is the variety of colours and leather types they have. The bags are such a classic, beautiful design and come in so many different variations.

See below some of my favourite Mini Eva Crocs

I also love the Caty style!

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend – Best Jewellery Gift Guide with Blue Nile Jewellery

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Blue Nile UK for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Today I am writing a post I am super passionate about and something I have never really gone into much detail on my blog before. We are going to be talking all about jewellery, and more importantly, diamonds – from one of my favourite Jeweller’s Blue Nile.

Now don’t be fooled by the name, Blue Nile: Diamond Jewellers actually do stock plenty of jewellery other than diamonds, from stunning solid gold to delicate gems. From top quality expensive diamonds, to jewellery under £100, Blue Nile has you covered!

What I love most about Blue Nile and what I think is their true unique selling point is the fact they are so informative and helping and honestly going onto their website is like attending an online course about diamonds!

They tell you everything you need to know about diamonds, so if you’re not too sure about what you’re buying or have any sort of queries, you’ll be sure to find your answer on the website!

They quite literally have a section on their website under the tab Diamond which says ‘Learn’.

From there you can find out ‘How shape affects price’ ‘Learn about the 4 C’s’ and how the diamonds are ‘Ethically Sourced’.

If you are looking to buy an engagement ring, or just a diamond in general I would highly recommend Blue Nile. Not just their quality, but the fact they have pretty much any diamond you could ever want! They also are fully certified and ethically sourced. ‘Every loose diamond sold by Blue Nile has been analyzed and graded by either the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) or the American Gem Society Laboratories (AGSL)

As well as having an amazing selection of pre- designed rings, you can also completely build your own ring! Right down from chosing the exact cut, clarity, carat and colour of your ring and what band you want.

As well as diamonds, Blue Nile also stocks a variety of beautiful gems and precious metals with a large price range to suit everyone’s budgets.

If you’re struggling what to get a special lady in your life for Christmas, from your partner to your mum or grandma then I would suggest jewellery is always an excellent idea. After all – diamonds, and most things shiny are a girl’s best friend!

Blue Nile have put together an excellent gift guide for you > here
