Ever since redecorating a year ago I’ve been adding prints to my bedroom and office walls, making it feel a little more like home. I’ve mainly gone for prints with bright colours or quotes, but all of them reflect the type of person I am.

I was asked from the lovely people at thecardgallery.co.uk if I’d like to choose one of their prints and, after browsing through the wonderful selection they had, I finally decided on the Work Is Always Better In Pyjamas business print. If you know me well, then you’ll already know that this print could almost have been made for me. I’m at my happiest and feel most comfortable when I’m in my pyjamas, in fact I’m wearing a pair of polka dot ones as I type up this blog post!

After choosing which design to go for, my print arrived a few days later and was carefully wrapped in bubble wrap, so it was completely undamaged. The size of the print is 12 x 12 inches, but you can ask if you’d like a different size at the time you place your order. I always seem to choose either A4 or A5, so I wanted to have something different this time. This print also has pink in the design which matches the colour scheme in my bedroom and I thought it looks quite at home alongside my other prints.

I chose to put my print in a black frame as I thought the wording would really stand out, rather than against a white or wooden frame. The Card Gallery do give you the option of having your print on it’s own or already in a frame for a little extra cost.

I am so pleased with my print and it really is the perfect one to hang on my bedroom wall. I think these prints would also make a wonderful gift for someone, I know a few friends who would absolutely love to receive one of these for their birthday. These are just a selection of designs they have on their website but whatever your taste there will be something right for you. I’m honestly thinking about putting the I Love Lists one on my wishlist!

As well having a range of beautiful prints The Card Gallery also sell other stationery from weddings or a new baby to birthdays and other seasonal events. I love the cute party invites, I may have to think about some for my next big birthday, and their children’s section is just adorable.

There’s more information over on The Card Gallery’s Twitter or Instagram pages, and why not have a look for yourself at some of the other amazing prints on their website. I guarantee you’ll love what you see and will take forever trying to decide which print to have, I have I did!

I simply adore having candles in my home, no matter what the season, I’ll make sure to stock up on them whenever I’m in a homeware store. They give my room a more cosy feel and I particularly love using anything with Lavender in, so this candle from Roam by 42 Pressed is absolutely perfect for when I want to feel calm and relaxed.

Roam 42 Pressed have a range of candles based on cities around the world and can be used for travelling as well as at home. I chose the London candle*, not only does it contain Lavandin, but London will always have a special place in my heart. I’ve travelled there on many occasions, creating so many wonderful memories. Each time I’ve been burning this candle it not only puts my mind in a happy place, it makes me think of what new adventures my life will take me on.

They are made from natural soy wax and the London candle contains notes of:

  • Lavandin
  • Black Pepper
  • Oak Moss
  • Labdanum

The scent is described as:

“The vibrant mist off the River Thames sets the tones for the days adventures. From the earthy aroma of Kensington Palace to the aura at Buckingham Palace during the Changing of the Guard. Regal notes of lavender  and bright citrus mix with sharp spice; a bold mix of modern and traditional paring properly together in the cosmopolitan hub.”

It has a slightly more spicy fragrance than the sweeter lavender candles I’ve owned, however it smells incredibly divine. I’ve been burning this candle at any time of the day, not just the evening but when ever I’ve felt stressed or wound up, I have it burning beside me on the desk as I write this post. Even when it’s not lit I can’t help but give it a sniff to take in the beautiful scent.

I recently had a relative staying over from Canada and she would absolutely love the London candle* as a reminder of her visit to the UK.

I have to mention how gorgeous the packaging is, the cream textured paper with rose gold print making a simple glass jar look so pretty. Overall, I think this candle looks and smells beautiful and I just love having it lit in whichever room I’m in.

If you love anything travel related then you’l love the range of candles and prints that Roam by 42 Pressed have to offer, there’s one for London, Paris, New York, San Francisco and Chicago. You can also find Roam by 42 Pressed on Twitter and Instagram.
