DIY Scaffolding Shelves

Among the many jobs we're doing constantly around the house, one of them that I had been thinking about for a while was to remove a set of cupboards in the kitchen and replace them with some open shelves. There was nothing wrong with the cupboards but with the amazing storage that the kitchen already… Continue reading DIY Scaffolding Shelves

DIY Outdoor Cushions

As part of our recent garden update, the new table and chairs we picked up were crying out for some seat cushions, not only for comfort but I love adding fabrics to a space to add texture and pattern.

My Favourite Instagram Accounts – Part 1

I love Instagram. Without doubt it is my favourite social media platform and the only one that I'm really active on, probably because I don't feel any kind of fear of judgement on Instagram because it's such a positive and supportive community. We all share what we love and talk about our interests, and everyone… Continue reading My Favourite Instagram Accounts – Part 1

Getting What You Want, Cheap!

When it comes to home renovation, decor and furniture for most what comes to mind is £££ and the fact that they won't have any left. Unfortunately, that can be very true. Simply look online or go in store to places like Laura Ashley, Wayfair, Oak Furniture Land, John Lewis and the prices that they… Continue reading Getting What You Want, Cheap!

4 Sunny Bakes

Now that it's officially summer I thought I would share a couple of my favourite recipes for this time of year. I always change what I eat with the seasons and weather, so in the summer rich, heavy foods are a no-go for me, and the same goes for what I bake. So, the following… Continue reading 4 Sunny Bakes

The Legging Addiction

When it comes to fashion as much as I wish I looked like a Kardashian or one of those super trendy fashion bloggers, when the time comes to getting dressed in the morning I just can't hack it.
