December roundup

December has flown over in a whirlwind. I’m sure we can all agree on that one. One minute it’s the first and we’re anticipating the month and festivities ahead of us, and now here we are on 27 December, shocked that once agin it’a gone so fast. We’ve had a lovely Christmas. The build-up was…

Homeware // Autumnal Homeware Accessories 

Even though we’re currently enjoying a beautiful Indian summer, at the weekend I began to turn my attention to autumn and more importantly, autumnal homeware. This autumn is the first that my boyfriend and I have spent living together after we moved into our rented house last December and I’m excited to reflect the change of…

Interiors // How To Make Your Home Instagrammable

Whether you’re a blogger or not, we’re all over our Instagram feed and sharing our pics to get those likes. And lately I’m loving sharing pictures of my home. Making your personal space look amazing for both yourself and your grid is a must these days and if you’re anything like me, you’ll be lusting…

Life // Weekend Treats

New lipstick, Glamour magazine, updating my diary sat in the sun on a lovely Saturday morning drinking fruit tea.    This was me yesterday morning. It was a beautiful day with a basic to-do list: sweep, do the ironing, relax. Those are my favourite kinda weekends. Yes it’s great to be busy and have a…

Interiors // Creating Our Perfect Kitchen

I first blogged about moving home back in December shortly after we’d moved in and when blogging took a backseat. But, now we’re nearing the end of January (the worst month for many) and the boxes are unpacked, I thought I’d blog more about our lovely 3 bed detached. As we’ve moved into a rental,…

Home // Candles of the Month

As we progress through the first month of 2016, I’ve put all the Christmassy scented candles away and started to reintroduce fruity scents into our home. This strawberry Yankee Candle was a housewarming gift from my best friend when we moved into our house last month. We’ve had it burning away most evenings as the…

Life // Our New Beginnings! 

Apologies for my absence around these parts but I have a good reason – my boyfriend and I moved into our first home together! It’s slowly coming together with new home cards and a twinkling Christmas tree shaping up our new living room. I’m excited to expand into home interiors and get cooking in our…

Home // Interiors Inspiration 

My boyfriend and I are currently looking for our first home together and whilst we keep scouring Right Move and booking viewings, I’ve been visiting garden centres and department stores to get some serious home inspo! Crisp white interiors with a mix of vintage and modern accessories are our thing and with an entire home…

Review // Candles of the Month 

I’ve blogged in the past about my love for Primark candles. Every time I pop in I check out their homeware range. They have a great range of scents and they cost less than a fiver too so you can’t not pick a couple up everytimd you’re in a Primark store!   Now the weathers…

Kick-starting my day

I don’t know if this is a really boring topic to blog about or not but lately I’m loving flavoured tea. I’ve never been a fan of hot drinks, generally swerving any offerings of tea of coffee for a boring glass of water. Preferably tap..it’s best, honest. But since I vowed to eat a little…

My day at the Manchester Ideal Home Show

On Friday I was lucky enough to score myself a ticket to the Ideal Home Show. As I grow older my tastes are changing and I’m finding myself swaying away from checking out Topshops latest collection (although I did check out the Jenner sisters rather last week) and find myself in Primark home instead. I’m…

My Dream Writer’s Space

When it comes to blog content, my inspiration for posts can never be pinned down to one ‘thing’. Articles I read in magazines, the newspaper, the Metro on the bus, news articles I catch on the 6 0’clock news. Conversations with friends, rediculous Facebook status updates, tweets that make me think. Having WordPress on my Blackberry…
