Interiors Wish List: Moroccan Wedding Blanket

11th March 2016

Next on the interiors wish list is a traditional Moroccan Wedding Blanket also known as the Handira. Of course with my inner magpie it has everything to do with the sequins and tassel detailing of these beautiful blankets. They can be used as a bedspread, wall hanging, as a rug, hung at the head of the bed or simply draped over the sofa. For me the bedspread is the best use for these beauties although I am sure the maintenance of keeping these clean and dust free will be costly. These have me yearning for a trip to Morocco.

The best place to find them so far is on Etsy which has a huge selection or edit58 so better start saving! Can’t wait to get my hands on one of these.

Here are a few of the best uses of Morrocan Wedding Blankets I have found – images via Pinterest.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

4th March 2016
mothersday_2016

Leaving it pretty late for my Mother’s Day post but if you are reading this Hub, here is my Mother’s Day wishlist. I’ve done all the hard work searching for you, all you need to do is pick – one, two or three items, it’s up to you! Or Mums, why not treat yourself this year and save the disappointment!

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

  1. Selfish Mother Sweatshirt – Mama ‘Boyfriend’ Sweatshirt

    With a £15 donation going to Help Refugees UK, (a grassroots organisation doing amazing work on the ground for people in the Calais ‘jungle’ refugee camp, and on the Greek island of Lesbos, where asylum seekers are arriving everyday on perilously overpacked boats), what’s not to love about this Selfish Mother sweatshirt? I like the ‘Mama’ alternative in an eye-popping Hibiscus/Gold. Sold out at John Lewis but alternatives available at Selfish Mother. 

  2. Personalised Rose Gold Name Necklace

    I have wanted one of these personalised name necklaces for yonks but have never got round to getting one myself. It has to be in rose gold. Nothing else will do! Of course, kids come first and I have recently bought one for my daughter’s 10th birthday. You can get them on etsy or Not on the High St which are awash with name necklaces galore but can vouch for this one here. 

  3. Kikki K Stationery – Blush leather day planner

    Move over Tiger & HEMA, I have found a new stationery love. Kikki K Stationery has arrived in the UK. Let’s face it, who doesn’t love a bit of new stationery and the Scandinavians get it right every time. Love this Blush Pink Personal Planner. What more do you need when stationery is this beauiful?

  4. Kikki K Stationery – Boxed Dual Pen Set

    Simple things but I can never find a decent pen in this house. All I want for mothers day is this Dual Pen Set again from Kikki K.

  5. Bloom & Wild Flower subscription box

    Subscription boxes have really taken off this year but would love to get one of these Bloom & Wild boxes as an ongoing subscription. The Lizzie works out at £18.50 per bouquet sent every 28 days on an ongoing basis.

  6. Zara Printed dress

    I keep dreaming about this Zara printed dress. Have to stop myself as had a bit of a splurge recently on a number of midi dresses. Now just need somewhere to wear them!
