We can all struggle at times with home maintenance and DIY and since moving into my first home I’ve faced a few challenges myself. Home admin and paperwork can pile up, painting the damp patch on the bathroom ceiling is an undesirable task, and putting up those shelves I’ve been putting off for weeks never quite reaches the top of my to-do list.

I’ve already shown you around most of my home and in my last home blog post I shared all of the before and after photos of my flat since I bought and redecorated it. Now I’ve finally got round to taking some photos of the bathroom, so here’s a room tour of my little bathroom!

This room is probably where I spend most of my spare time when I’m home. I love it because it’s so light and cosy! The large balcony doors let in lots of sunshine and I love snuggling up on our cosy sofa. I’ve been in my flat for over…

Happy New Year! 2017 was a pretty busy year for me, mostly because I got my own place! Moving out of my parents house for the first time was a big step for me but I’m proud of how well I’ve managed. If anything, life is much simpler! And quieter.. I love how peaceful my new home is despite it being in a more central location and my parents house was in a sleepy village. I’ve already shared with you my…
