The most beautiful biscuits and baking kits around! Martha met the founder, Rebecca, of Honeywell Bakes through Not On The High Street and have stayed firm business buddies ever since.

Hazel & Blue

Light up your home with beautifully scented soy candles by Hazel & Blue! These delightful eco-friendly candles are hand-poured in Wiltshire . Another female-founded small business, Hazel & Blue was born in 2016 at a kitchen table after their founder, Becky, couldn’t find natural and sustainable scented candles. We always see Hazel & Blue in the comments, cheering us on and supporting us in whatever we do, which is so appreciated.
