Cosy autumnal home decor

I think we can all agree that we bloody love a cosy home. This time of year calls for all of the autumnal vibes – whether you decorate for the season or not. I’m in the latter camp and don’t go all out but I do make a couple of cosy additions to make my…

New build kitchen makeover

This post is overdue but a few months ago we finally tackled our kitchen. When we first moved in back in 2018, we had all black utensils. A few months later we switched to red and we stayed red till earlier this year. But that got old, quickly and we decided to switch it up….

Home update: Three years after completion

Follow my blog with Bloglovin How have we lived in our home for three years? Its flown over so quickly and whilst we’re yet to paint a single wall, the house has turned into a home and it feels like us. Lounge – Then & Now I can’t believe how much this room has changed….

My WFH Evening Routine

I’ve mentioned before how pivotal my evening and after work routine is to unwinding after work and separating working from home and relaxing after work. Five evening habits to make 1. As soon as I close my laptop, every reminder of work goes away into a drawer. Putting my laptop, notebook and work phone away…

February Favourites – Skincare, Essie nail varnish and home updates

Monthly favourite blog posts are posts I love to read and write, but always, always forget about. So, let’s see how long I keep up with this latest reincarnation of the series, hey? February was a nice little month – it brought some annual leave from work, home organisation, sunshine, blue skies, warmer weather and optimism!   I’m feeling much brighter about…

New build house: Living room decor

When it comes to home decor and DIY, we’re very slow off the mark. We have one room that’s done in our house and we’ve lived here for coming up to three years but we’re not the type to rush. Especially when new builds are a blank canvas. Steady as she goes. But! Our lounge…

Budgeting and Cutting Unnecessary Spending

2020 took us all by surprise and I think it’s safe to say that none of us expected to be spending a large chunk of time at home and unable to work. Last year in February I made the decision to leave the company I’ve worked for four years, despite not having a new role…

3 Design Ideas For a New Build Lounge

2021 means we’ve been in our house for three years come April. Wild. I follow lots of new build accounts in Instagram and it’s so interesting to see how other people decorate and update their homes to add character and personality. We have new sofa arriving in a matter of weeks so our lounge will…

DIY New Build Pantry Hack

New builds are notorious to be short on storage space. Whilst we have a comfortable townhouse with three stories, little nooks and crannies to store things away are few and far between. So, you have to fashion whatever additional storage space you can. We have an ‘under the stairs’ cupboard that’s home to dog food,…

It’s Ok To Be A Homebird #SpillTheTea

Social media gives off this impression that everyone is busy all the time. Checking in on Facebook, tagging your location on IG Stories, seeing friends and family. We’ve all read that memes about how exhausting it is to work out (LOL, I don’t do that), physically go to work, keep your home clean, see people…

Buying Our House – What Renting Taught Me

Renting is a mind-field. Since we bought our house earlier this year we’re out of the trap, thank god. But if you’re a renter who’s saving for a deposit or, shock horror, someone who is happy renting and likes the flexibility of not being tied in, I’m now ready to look back on my experience…

Getting Engaged & Unecessary Pressure

I feel like I’ve taken a much more lax view to blogging lately. I’m enjoying sharing little snippets here and there and working with brands that I enjoy and want to share. I thought I’d check in with a little life update and to share these photos I took earlier this week. We’ve been in…

Life // May Favourites

It’s been a while since this blog had a strong beauty focus, and I mean even though I’m currently not evening wearing make-up to work, I’m letting my love for beauty and skincare products take over. Being in the new house means I love finding new corners to take photos and share on here and…

Beauty // Bathroom Makeover & Evening Routine

When we bought our house, we had a plan for the majority of the rooms but our bathrooms (yep, plural!) we had no idea. Our main bathroom was a blank canvas and we’ve enjoyed looking for accessories to make it a little more homely. We were both sold on the colour scheme – white and…
