Surviving Summer with Soren’s House.

We’re well into the flow of the Summer holidays, but this week I’ve been plagued by terrible, headsplitting toothache and as a result have been in a bit of a grump. So when a big box of goodies arrived from the lovely Soren’s House it was just the boost we all needed. Naturally the box itself had…

Garden makeover, Phase One.

I’ve shared various snippets of our garden transformations over the last several months, but until now haven’t managed to get it all down in one place. I’ve been waiting to take ‘the right shot’, for the weather to be just right, but in doing so time has gone by and some of the beautiful plants…

Favourite Things Weekly (or not so weekly!)

I haven’t done a Favourite Things Weekly in a while, maybe I should drop the ‘Weekly’ then I need not make any apology! Here are a few things I’m crushing on… Wooden Candlesticks, no explanation needed really, they’re just lovely. Candles add instant atmosphere to a room and these look so tactile and beautiful. I’ve…

Mollie Makes Feature.

It’s been a bit of a crappy week this one, but I don’t want to go into that. Instead here’s a little bit of yay me-ness! I just made that a word, ok! Those that follow me on Facebook and Instagram may have seen me mention that the rather fabulous Mollie Makes asked me to feature in their magazine, actually I…

Maisons Du Monde Junior edit.

It’s rather lovely when a brand you already love and shop with gets in contact, even more so if they want to collaborate, so when Maisons Du Monde asked me to create an edit for their new Junior collection I was very happy indeed. I have chosen pieces that I love and would want in my own…

Nancy’s bedroom transformation. 

I’ve finally got around to finishing off the bits and bobs in Nancy’s room that I’ve strung out for far too long and took the tidiness of Thursday’s photoshoot as a good opportunity to take some decent pictures.  As with most of the house, Nancy’s bedroom has been through several variations, but none of them…

Exciting news! 

I’m super excited to properly share with you lovely lot some exciting news…  Mollie Makes will be featuring my house in an upcoming Summer edition of their wonderfully creative magazine. Yay! They do totally beautiful home tour features and I can’t believe I’m going to be one of them. Some of you may have noticed…

Sitting in style.

I hope everyone’s been enjoying their Bank Holiday, what have you been up to? My lovely big brother has been down from Bristol, so I cooked a slap up roast for him, my mum, Stu and the girls, which went down very well, so did the bottle of red I found myself guzzling, yummy! Before…

Hidden treasure.

Hands up if you love Charity Shops?! I know I certainly do. In my attempt to own less ‘stuff’ recently I have been dropping off donations more often than purchasing, but I was feeling lucky this morning and fancied a rummage. My good feeling wasn’t in vain and I was rewarded with these lovelies, for…

Nest & Burrow, Beauty in Simplicity.

Evening my lovelies, how’s your week going? I’ve had a brilliant one so far and tonight I’m really excited to bring you a collaborative ‘Meet the maker’ piece with the lovely and talented Suzanne over at Nest&BurrowUK, to celebrate her Etsy store restocking, going live tonight at 8pm. I’ve been following Nest&Burrow on Instagram for…

Dust sheet curtains, serious budget styling.

So what do you do when you need curtains but you can’t afford curtains? You make them from a £10 dust sheet of course! I can’t take full credit for the idea, a good friend of mine did it before me and basically I have copied her, but as they say, imitation is the sincerest…

Minimalist bedroom makeover.

The title of this blog post says makeOVER, but I think makeUNDER would be a more accurate description. This room was ‘done’ before, but it really didn’t represent what I wanted from our bedroom, I’m not entirely sure how it ended up as it did, but I wanted change. It wasn’t terrible by any stretch…
