Friday I'm in Love - Etsy

This week is a bit of a mish-mash as I am not choosing one brand or product but a marketplace. But it's true I love Etsy, if you know where to look there are so many amazing sellers and products. I have bought a lot from Etsy over the last few years - especially when I was organising my wedding. I have never been disappointed by a product or had a bad service!
I have compiled some of the items I have purchased or have my eye on. I hope you like them:)

Friday I'm in Love - Whistle & Flute

This week my Friday I'm in love post is about a small clothing company from Victoria BC, in Canada. Whistle & Flute creates a range of "fine clothes for dapper families".
I love the fact that their kids clothes are unisex and their screen printed designs are so unique and really cool...sometimes you need a break from H&M!
All their clothing is made of luxuriously soft cottons and washes really well.
Here are a few items I got Elliott in the past, I wouldn't mind the 'je t'aime' t-shirt for myself, I have to say.


All images are from the Whistle and Flute website.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Friday I'm in Love - My Home Bakery



It's crazy how quickly the week passes! I work Monday to Wednesday and i usually have to work in the evening so I am always looking forward to Wednesday night. I know I can relax a bit and focus more on my family and the house. I had grand plans for this Thursday, my to do list is huge and thought I would be able to tick most things off by the the end of Thursday. However, nothing straightforward hey? E woke up at 3 am, he had vomited all over his bed, after that he decided he just wanted to watch telly and refused to go back to bed. Z woke up and was sick straight away too... this was going to be a fun day!! So here we are Friday already I have completed nothing from my list, I am feeling pretty nauseous myself, I am walking around with a bottle of disinfecting spray as I do not want to be ill but I know it's coming my way:((
Ironically I had planned this post long before the sickness bug. Yeap, what I want is to stare at food right now...not.

But nevertheless if I weren't ill this is what I would love to have, a treat from My Home Bakery!
I love this place, so much so that when A and I got married, we ordered some of the cakes in mini sized version for our cake table. They were sooo cute and the perfect size for someone like me who can't commit to one cake and just want to bloody try the whole lot!! Price wise it was very reasonable too.

So here is a run down of some of our favorite cakes:


THE ORANGE CAKE

Oh my this is a very very good cake, it has a bit of chocolate in it but not much and it's very orangey, the cake is the perfect texture and super moist, The glaze on top with the orange is delicous. Would highly recommend it even if you aren't a big fan of orange in cake, this would change your mind.


PASSION FRUIT AND MANGO VOLCANO CAKE

This is one of my favourite and they usually have a deal on, buy 2 for £3 I think, I usually end up buying this one and a chocolate one as I know I won't be disappointed. The icing is super yummy and again the cake is moist and really light.


LEMON DRIZZLE CAKE

It's funny as it's not cake I would normally choose but this one is really really good. Again they aced the icing, it's sharp and not too sweet and really balcances the cake. Unfortunately A loves this cake so I never get more than a sliver:(


CARROT CAKE

Elliott chose this one and although I do like a carrot cake, purely because I believe I am eating one of my five a day, I have never been blown away by one. But once again My Home Bakery have nailed it, perfect tangy icing and super moist and tasty cake. Both A and I were surprised by how nice this was. 

What I love about this place is that although it is a small bakery, they have plenty of different cakes to choose from. They always have the usual ones they make but also have one or two new ones each time I go. They also have a lovely selection of breads.


If cakes aren't your thing then don't fret as they also make awesome sandwiches and rolls like a sausage and black pudding roll or a lamb and mango roll.

So if you are tempted you can find more info on their Facebook page.

Friday I am in Love is a new feature that will get posted on...Fridays of course. I will showcase any product or brand I love. Simple as that!!

Today I'll to talk about OYOY, a newly established Danish interior design company.
Their vision is to "design functional products in high quality materials with beautiful colours and shapes."
“The simple things should have one colour stroke, which should be seen and give the product edge. The things we surround us with should make us happy and give us energy.”

Here is a selection of some of my favourite products from their current collection:


1. Very cute penguin with leather wings / 2. Black and white cutting board / 3. Colourful hook  / 4. Polar Bear cushion / 5. Storage bag

How cute is that penguin, it would make such a great gift for a new baby! Plus it's gender neutral which I love!
I have been looking for a black and white chopping board for a while and this one is perfect!!

You can find the rest of the collection on their website: www.oyoy.dk or you can buy some of the items on skandivis, which I am just about to do:)

Enjoy your weekend! xx
