    Bright buys for summer entertaining

    by  • Sunday, August 9, 2015 • Latest trends, Seasonal buys, Stylish shopping, Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    So, I feel the sun has been a little shy this summer, however I am wholeheartedly keeping the dream alive of a balmy Indian summer! With that in mind, it would also leave plenty of time for summer entertaining and general lounging/basking in the garden. We might be working on our autumn winter issues already, but I’m not ready to give up on summer just yet!  Even if it’s a little cloudy, I’ve selected some colourful garden buys that bring a little sunshine in!
