So on 1st September I became a very proud home owner! *Cue awful cheesy photo of me holding up keys in front of front door*. Soon I plan to do another blog post about the buying process that I went through, along with a timeline on how long it took. But for now I just wanted to show you the place! I first viewed the property back in May and I fell in love with it right away. It was the first (and only!) place that I viewed, and I was lucky that the owner was after a quick sale…

I mentioned in my last blog post that I’m currently in the middle of getting my first place (it’s so close now.. fingers crossed!), and therefore I cannot wait to have a place to myself to fill with pretty things!

It’s the perfect…

Easter and spring is the season for pretty pastel colours and polka dots, and over the years I’ve picked up a few pretty home decorations specifically for this time of year. I also love Easter baking, and me and my Mum make the traditional Maltese Easter biscuit called figolli (large iced almond biscuits) every year! Making these yummy little chocolate Easter nests is easy. I simply melted…

I always enjoy putting together a wishlist post as there’s nothing I love more than a bit of window shopping! In this wishlist I have put together some of my favourite home accessories that I have spotted online which are all copper or marble themed. Copper homeware accessories are a big trend this season and although I’m pretty late on the old bandwagon, I think it will be around for quite a whole! I love the fresh white look of the marble and the stylish gold accents, the two go so nicely together. Copper Homeware Accessories  Marble Base Table Lamp…
