Interiors // Uncommon Goods Wishlist

I’ve really grown to love our house. It’s a space that completely works for us – everything flows well, and all the rooms are decent sizes for our ever-growing family. It already holds so many memories. It’s taken me a while to adjust to our life here in Yorkshire, and therefore it’s taken me a while to put up photos and other bits and bobs to make it feel more homely. But over the past six months, I’ve been doing just that. I love a good peruse through a  ...

So when the very lovely Fiona from Yorkshire-based Plewsy got in touch about her new range For The Little Ones, I couldn’t help but squeal with unbridled stationery-lover joy! Fiona, who is expecting her first child this year, started Plewsy back in 2014. She creates from her studio in North Yorkshire, and is now stocked worldwide.

Review // Vax Air™ Lift Steerable Vacuum Cleaner

When our old vacuum cleaner decided it could no longer fulfil its duties (i.e. clean and suck up the constant mess that is our house), I was understandably very relieved that the lovely folk at Vax got in touch and offered us a new one! Our last vacuum cleaner was a Vax, and we’d had it for years, so they’re a brand that we trust here at Make, Do & Push! HQ. After a peruse on the Vax website, I decided that the Vax Air™ Lift Steerable Pet Upright Vacuum Cleaner would be the  ...
