A dinner party with friends / in Partnership with Miele



At the grand old age of (just turned) 32 I've learnt a few things, mostly that nothing else but the good health of your loved ones matters and secondly that you need good friends. I thrive on friendships and know how rare and special real genuine connections are. I feel so fortunate that I have friends that 'get me'. Ones that I can send random screen grabs or meme's too without it being weird, that I can cry in front of, that are supportive and excited about any good news I may have, and me them. Ones that pick you up when you're knackered and feeling low, basically be there for each other in an way that holds no agenda. When women really support women it's an amazing thing!

Anyway, I'm digressing a bit..

The other week I thought it would it would be nice to invite three of my very favourite women over for lunch. Each one of them inspires me for different reasons and I'm so proud of them all too. I have to say I'm usually one for dinner parties (the thought of tidying my house enough for people to come over is enough to put a stop to that idea) but when it's your good friends you know they won't actually care!

I'm working with Miele in this post who have Kindly gifted me one of their brilliant dishwashers the G 6820 SC from their Exclusive Collection (check the end of the post for a discount!). You might remember I actually worked with them this time last year creating a capsule clothing collection to wash in their washer/dryers. I'm thrilled to be partnering with them again as they are a brand I really rate. In fact I'm always raving about our washer and dryers ha!

I want to be able to get out my nicest crockery and dinnerware and treat my friends, and I want to be able to do this and be able to pop them all in my dishwasher at the end of it. Having friends over and using your fanciest things doesn't need to be a chore. I love that Miele are a brand that you can trust with your 'best'. The Exclusive Collection which our dishwasher is part of is a selection of Miele’s finest products with exclusive offers, only when you buy direct from Miele.co.uk


If you hadn't been able to tell I'm pretty obsessed with a pastel colour scheme. My plates are from Zara Home and the cake stand / cheese board stand, salad bowl and cutlery are from my faves Oliver Bonas.


If you don't follow these ladies then I'll pop their IG accounts below :



Whilst we were chatting away downstairs Tom was upstairs reading books to our children ha! Thanks Tom!


One of my favourite features of the Miele dishwasher is the fact that it self opens a couple of inches (on a latch) upon finishing so that the steam can be dispersed. Meaning that when you go to unstack it your dishes are not only super clean but dry too. Another design element I love is the fact that it lights up when opened so that you can stack your items easily. 

Unlike our old dishwasher instead of a cutlery tray to fit inside the bottom the Miele has three pull out racks including the top shelf that holds your cutlery. 


Having my friends round for an overdue catch up reminded me just how I should do this more, that there's no point in saving the house until its at it's best or scared to use my 'best'. 

Thanks to Miele for working with me on this post. I know that with all their products my treasured items are safe in their hands, especially my nicest dinnerware!

Now this is a dish washer I would absolutely love to have in my home, liking that it opens a bit to dry the plates

That food looks great. I would love a dishwasher, sadly there isn't anywhere to put one in our flat so hand-washing it is x
