If someone asked me what a favourite pasttime was, I’d have to be totally honest and say being nosy. That, and people watching. But mainly being nosy – I’m the type of person who loves walking past houses in the dark and peeping into cosy living rooms (not in a dodgy way I hasten to add, but because I’m curious about how people live).
It’s been an absolute pleasure getting to know other bloggers since I made the decision around this time last year to commit fully to this little online space of mine and they inspire me constantly, from stylish homes to kind words, everyone learning and growing.
Lizzie who blogs at Marmalade Pie was one of the first lovely ladies I met in a virtual world and I was quickly drawn to her beautiful posts describing her life in Ely, a place I’m familiar with since Pete was living there when we first met, and things she loves as well as crafty posts and family fun.
She has recently launched an online shop to compliment her blog, selling a unique collection of pretty gifts, homewares and accessories inspired by her own lifestyle and pieces from her home. Lizzie very kindly sent me a couple of items from her shop and I chose these perfect Bluebird earrings and the Hawthorn & Briar tin candle.

We’ve had a number of St Eval candles and the fragrances are always so stunning and unique, plus they burn so cleanly and are all handmade in Cornwall. Marmalade Pie stocks 3 fragrances and they retail at £7.00 which is such fantastic value for money.
The Bluebird earrings are beautifully crafted out of wood with silver stud backings by Layla Amber and retail at £9.00. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them non-stop.
The package that arrived was beautifully wrapped and it’s clear how much care and love Lizzie puts into her store. It’s full of gifts for loved ones or treats for yourself and until April 17th, Boo & Maddie readers can take 20% off by using code BOOANDMADDIE at checkout.
Thank you so much to Lizzie for sending me the candle and earrings and dear readers I do hope you take splendid advantage of this discount and support Marmalade Pie!
