New Olive & Orange Bedding and Curtains at Dunelm

Orla Kiely's Olive & Orange line is releasing a new collection of bedding and curtains, some of which are now available online at Dunelm. The prints have been available before in their camping and bicycle collection at Halfords (along with Orla Kiely's range of cosmetic bags at Target), and I'm happy to see them translated to homewares. I especially love the Tall Flower Blush curtains and the Big Tulip Duck Egg bedding set (I even see some new pillows in the product shots that are not showing up online yet. I hardly need any new pillows, but I'm excited for them nonetheless!)

Olive & Orange Duvet Cover and Pillowcase Set
£50 - £80

Matching pillowcases

Olive & Orange Lined Eyelet Curtains
£45 - £105

Orla Kiely Serving Boards Coming Soon!

A couple exciting new items are making their way to Orla Kiely's home range - dachshund and bunny wooden serving boards!

According to the product description, the reverse side can be used as a chopping board. I can already see myself not doing that and simply using these as decoration instead haha.

I haven't been able to find the Bonnie Bunny version online anywhere yet, so if any of you have any leads on where we can find it, please let me know :)

My Orla Kiely Christmas/Birthday Haul

Photos from my Instagram

My birthday wasn't too long ago, and since it's so close to Christmas, I often get presents for both occasions at once. My family and friends always tend to get me something Orla Kiely, and I'm always so appreciative of whatever they give me. Just wanted to share them with you all as I myself often enjoy hearing what others got for their birthdays. I also linked whatever I could still find available online down below in case you were looking to get any of these items for yourself :)


$178.56 (originally $223.20)






I hope everyone was able to get a few Orla goodies this past Christmas. If you did, please let me know what you got - I'd love to hear about it!

Another Life Update

Hello, everyone! Once again, apologies for my long absence. I recently returned to work after my three-months long maternity leave (which, by the way, is not nearly long enough and I miss my baby girl constantly), and needless to say, it's been quite an adjustment having two kids, a full-time job, maintaining a household, and wanting time for both myself and my husband. However, I'm slowly getting back into the groove of things, which means I'm making attempts once again to blog more consistently. It's easy to let these things go when everyday life gets in the way, but my closest friends and family have been encouraging me to get back to blogging as they know how much happiness it brings me. So with the support of some amazing people in my life (and you know who you are) I am making efforts to get back to doing something I love so much. So here's to a new year, one that will hopefully bring exciting new changes to my life, a fresh start to this blog - and of course, more Orla Kiely :)

Thank you for always sticking around,

Orla Kiely FW17 Mainline: Birdie Applique Nylon

I think this design is just too cute! The bird's wings and handles are made of leather, while the rest of the bag is nylon twill.
