I do love me a new website showcasing some stunning wares for the home. Even better when it’s by two local ladies who’ve taken their passion for interiors and created something both attainable and breathtaking. Creatives, meet Bonnie Bazaar; a boutique of carefully curated homewares – selected to create interior gorgeousness (and Lord knows I love a bit of gorgeousness!).

But really, there’s something special about Follow and it truly struck a chord with me. It’s a giftware paradise and I must now alert my friends; all future gifts will be coming from Follow.
