NEW Orla Kiely range

July 22, 2010

Oooh la la! Here’s a little peek at the new Orla Kiely kitchenware range, due to be stocked at the likes of BlissHome and John Lewis later this summer…

If you’re an Orla fan like me, this could all prove a little bit too exciting…

Don’t you just love that yellow storage pot? I’d like three for tea, coffee and sugar. SIGH. – Ellie

Rob Ryan’s Christmas

July 8, 2010

At the John Lewis Christmas press show yesterday, I bumped into (literally!) the bearded romantic paper-cutter hero, AKA Mister Rob Ryan. For some reason, I came over all star-struck and giggly – and waffled on for an eternity about how ‘wonderful’ his work is, how I admire him, how I’d love to see his scissors (I really said that) and how I would also like to plait his beard and lick his shoes (I didn’t really say that bit. I hope…)

ANYWAY He was there to launch a brand new high street collection of accessories, so I whipped out the trusty iPhone and took a few snaps. But sadly, they weren’t exactly top quality pics. As you can see.

Still, I’ve whacked them up nonetheless – feel free to ignore and focus instead on the gorgeous high-res pics the lovely PRs at Grylls and Reade gave me:

Check out the vase! The flask! The notebooks! The mugs! It’s all too much. How cool would it look if you shot the vase with a girl and boy filling it with flowers and recreated the image ON the vase? Or perhaps too much caffeine again. Hmmm. – Ellie
