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’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  ...

Review // Epson EcoTank ET-3600 Printer

I’ve been on the hunt for a new printer for a while now after our old one met its demise in the house move, so when we were offered the Epson EcoTank ET-3600 printer to review I couldn’t wait to put it to the test! After reading about the EcoTank, I was intrigued. Epson claim that the EcoTank ET-3600: “…reduces printing costs by 74% on average…” And it sounded like such a fantastic family printer. I’m looking forward to sharing this review with you.
