YOUR WEEKEND FINDS 

HOUSEPLANTS IN A HEATWAVE

It's Summer. It's meant to be hot, we know. But if you've found the recent weather a bit too much then you're probably not the only one. If your houseplants have been looking a little on the droopy side then we've got some top tips to share on how to get them looking their best again.

Like us, plants respond to the changes in weather and strong direct sunlight and intense heat can mean stems loose their usual strength and leaves can get brown and crispy. Too much of this and they can die completely so check out these tips for bringing your leafy friends back from the brink. 

 

Such A Fun Age

BOOK

Kiley Reid's critically acclaimed novel, Such A Fun Age, will have you gripped from start to finish. A brilliant piece of literature to make you examine the way we perceive every day situations and how what's on the surface is rarely all there is to it. Reid demonstrates a remarkable insight by taking on the monumental challenge of revealing the state of America through what she has called the “everyday domestic biases that we don’t even know we have.” This book has been a huge talking point so far this year so don't miss out on the debate! 
In the midst of a family crisis one late evening, white blogger Alix Chamberlain calls her African American babysitter, Emira, asking her to take toddler Briar to the local market for distraction. There, the security guard accuses Emira of kidnapping Briar, and Alix's efforts to right the situation turn out to be good intentions selfishly mismanaged.
