Welcome to Bright.Bazaar, my make-you-smile style corner of the internet. I’ve been sharing my love of beautiful design, feel-good homes, everyday style, inspiring travel and, pretty much everything in between, since 2009. As well as working as a content creator, I write interior design books and edit a bi-weekly e-newsletter called Smile Mail. I live in New York City with my heartmate and can often be found listening to Madonna’s Confessions album and dreaming up my next home renovation project.
It’s my mum’s birthday this weekend (that’s Mr.Bazaar and Mummy Bazaar above just before Christmas lunch last year!) and so she’s taking over Happy Weekend with her birthday picks. My mum and I have always appreciated interior decor, plus I spoke of the hours we spent in the kitchen together when I was younger earlier in the week. So, then, no surprises that her wish list is full of top notch interior and kitchen-themed goodies. Shall we crack on with what I like to call: Mr. Bazaar’s-Mum’s-Top-Four-Birthday-Wish-List-Chart, snappy, right?! In at number one is this super cute letterpress recipe folder from Anthropologie, which given the abundance of foodie magazine tear sheets dotted around my mum’s house is a super practical pressie. Still at two is The Little Paris Kitchen cookbook by Rachel Khoo. We were both fans of the TV series that aired during Spring so I’m also keen to read the accompanying book. (Has anyone read it?) Slipping to number three after its Olympics high is this London landmarks cushion cover from Cath Kidston which she has earmarked for the conservatory. Rounding out the top four is this photographic studio light for her walk in wardrobe. Happy birthday, mum! Which wish list pick do you like best, friends?
