New Blog: Think Halal

Loving the new incarnation of Adnan’s Think Halal blog.

“think halal is deliberately devoid of description and context. It’s a cross between ffffound! and notcot and it’s sole intention is to provoke.”

Sugar Print

I saw this print over at Twig & Thistle yesterday and immediately bought one for myself. I mean, what’s not to like? It’s pretty, screen printed and depicts a dessert table and cupcakes. Perfect! I have no idea where I’m going to put it yet but I’m sure I’ll figure something out. I think it would be great in the kitchen or in a little girl’s bedroom.

The Mangle Xmas Sale

Today I was in central London with a friend and we popped along to the The Mangle Xmas Sale as we were close by. I had told myself I wouldn’t spend any money but then…Rob Ryan was there! And all his tiles were £5! I just had to get this one because I’d had my eye on it for ages and it just reminds me of my husband whenever I see it. Rob was so lovely and humble when I told him how much I loved his work.


Then I saw Hazel Nicholls of Reapwhatisew. I love her stuff too and have been coveting her pastel “It’s What Inside That Counts” print for ages. At £100 I’ve been a bit reluctant to buy it. On her stall however she was selling artist’s proofs of her prints for £20 and when I asked her, it turned out she did have a pastel one! Hurrah.


After the fair we went to check out the ice skating at Somerset House. They had set up a Tiffany’s Tuck Shop…well I’ll let the pictures do the talking here. (Poor quality as they’re taken with my camera phone.) All in all, another fun day in my favourite city.

Dressing Up

Okay, so who doesn’t wish they had a walk-in wardrobe and dressing room? Those of you who probably already have one, lucky things.

Well a girl can dream, can't she?

When I imagine my dressing room, I picture it decorated with these pretty photo prints. They’d add just the right finishing touch for a space dedicated to clothes, shoes and handbags.

An Apple a Day

Has anyone else spotted the apple motif that seems to be everywhere right now? I for one, love it.

Quentin Blake prints

I was a HUGE fan of Roald Dahl as a child. I read all of his books and remeber being so sad when he passed away. So you can imagine how badly I want one (or two) of these gorgeous limited edition prints of Quentin Blake illustrations we all remember from his books.

How great would this George’s Marvellous Medicine print be in the kitchen?
