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. In one of the towns we visited called Stow-on-the-Wold, we popped into a lovely antique shop called Tara Antique Centre on the market square. I love browsing antique shops and looking at all the old interior accessories and vintage decorative furnishings and dreaming about how I could make…

I often used to post about little DIY projects I would complete at home, but it’s literally been years since I last did something creative! But a couple of weeks ago I got my creative mojo back and decided I wanted to give this lovely French style bedside table (from Out There Interiors) a little make over. It’s been in my dressing room for 18 months with bare, raw wood and heavy metal drawer pulls. I quite liked the natural finish, but it didn’t really fit in with the rest of the decor.

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..

So it’s been over a year since I moved into my own place after living at home for 26 years!

I was lucky to get on really well with my parents, I had my own space and freedom, and the financial outgoings were minimal. Living at home whilst working full time allowed me to save a chunk of my wages every month to put towards a deposit, but I still didn’t think I’d ever…

November was such a busy month for me with so much going on over the weekends and after work.  But December has been a little bit more chilled luckily which has meant that I’ve been fully embracing the festive period, and I spent 1st December getting our home ready for Christmas! I thought it was nice that 1st December fell on a Saturday this year as it meant we could spend the weekend together getting all Christmassy! Last year was the first Christmas in my own home and I had only just moved in, so I didn’t really have the…
