Free dream Analysis at Selfridges, 19th May 2012

On May 18th, 2012 by .

As part of Selfridges’ 4th Floor Open House Event (17 – 19 May) The London Bed Company is hosting a day of fun and free 15-minute dream analysis sessions with leading dream interpreter, Emma Leverton.

I had the pleasure of speaking with Emma last week when she offered to analyze my dreams ahead of the event.  This is something that I have been meaning to do for some time and so I was more than happy to take part. Emma was fantastic and great at interpreting my dreams, this is definitely something I would recommend if you are at all curious about what your dreams mean.

The free dream analysis will start on the 19th from 10am-1pm, 2pm-6pm on Selfridges 4th floor.  The Open House event is open now, until the 19th May and will provide customers with a host of exclusive demonstrations, initiatives and offers from home and leisure brands.  London Bed Company offers for the Open House Event will include free pillows worth £210 with all Jenson purchases, as well as luxury bedlinen set worth £299 with any Frank Hudson purchase, alongside many, many more.

“Emma Leverton is a natural Empath and qualified Psychic Counsellor, Clairvoyant, Palmist, Tarot Master, Dream Analyst (Oneiromancy), Reiki Practitioner, Life Skills Coach and Advisor. She has travelled the world working on all practices but is now based in the Dorset countryside.”

{Colour swatch} Raspberry & Chartreuse

In any season, particularly the cooler months, I simply can’t resist soft and earthy neutrals, but I am loving the pops of fresh berry and citrus brights seeping into design collections as of late. The unexpected bursts of colour make for great features. I might just have to add a splash of raspberry somewhere this Winter, even if it’s an inspired floral arrangement to brighten things up. Are you daring enough to incorporate these colours into your interiors?

Jubilee Jollies

On May 1st, 2012 by .

2012 really is a great year to be British! Not only do we have the Olympics this Summer, but it is also our grand old Queen’s Diamond Jubilee; a remarkable achievement with only Queen Victoria as a fellow monarch to reach such Jubilee heights. The Jubilee weekend will stretch from the 2nd to the 5th of June, and is sure to be packed full of celebrations and events all across Grand ol’ Blighty; street parties and pic-nic’s galore!

With the recent gloomy Spring it’s a great time to look ahead and start planning your Jubilee celebrations. Think red, blue and white. Think crowns, corgies, champers and yummy treats; cucumber sandwiches (no crusts) and scones! To help you get started here is a selection of beautiful Jubilee party themed products…
