Last month we went on a little romantic break to The Cotswolds which is one of my favourite places in the whole world! There are so many quintessentially English little tea rooms and country pubs – I just love it! It’s the perfect place to go for a nice little weekend away.

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! It was probably the room that required the most work doing to it as when I moved in it was in need of a good freshen…
