For ages now, we have desperately wanted to trade in our old, frayed around the edges sofa for something a bit more respectable. But we have been waiting for Dottie to get older in the hope that the spillages, dirty fingerprints and inappropriate drawing will have stopped, or at the very least slowed down considerably. Well it seems that time has finally come, well fingers crossed anyway, because the search has begun.
During my online browsing, I have stumbled across a new company that not only makes beautiful and timeless furniture, but also has the kind of credentials I like the sound of. The Lounge Co is entirely designed and made in England, and when it comes to furniture has the utmost design integrity, belonging to the same group as Parker Knoll and G-Plan

It seems that I am totally rubbish at blogging at the moment. I have no other excuse than time, there just isn’t enough of it! I have made a conscious decision not to send Dottie to nursery more than two days a week (I want to make the most of this last year before she starts school), but the downside to this decision, is that my life is a constant juggling act. But it is worth it in order to spend this precious time with my littlest.
So how come I’ve popped back today? I’ll tell you, to talk with Zoe Hannam about her beautiful online store Minor Goods, and how a change in lifestyle similar to my own, has influenced her brand.
Last Friday evening, my daughter Elvia and I were invited along to a fans screening for a new film that is just about to be released. The screening took place at a fancy hotel in London, and as we walked to the train station, I had a moment of self-doubt and said to Elvia that I hoped everyone else wouldn’t be dressed up. Her response was a pleasant surprise, “You’re Emma Harris, you can do whatever you want”! As someone who has always suffered from low self-confidence, inside, I was thrilled, my demons haven’t been passed along the family line, and one of the life lessons I have tried to teach was obviously sinking in. You know the kind of lesson I’m talking about; it doesn’t matter what other people think of you, you can be whoever you want to be, and do whatever you want in this life, who cares if you’re dressed differently from other people, it’s good to be unique. The sort of things, we struggle to believe ourselves but desperately want our children to.
