January 2023 Favourites & Recommendations

January is high summer here, and it’s usually spent with a little downtime – mainly reading and working in the garden.

It’s always so lovely to hear from you via email or Insta DM. And it seems a few of you were wondering about some of the items that I’ve used or mentioned in my social media and blog posts. So I’ve compiled a list of January 2023 favourites that hopefully you will find helpful.

The links below go through to the same or similar products to what I have posted about here or on my @annemaree.c Instagram profile.

These items range from books to kitchen & gardening equipment, gift ideas to homewares and my fave recent clothing and skincare purchases.
