As I live at home with my parents I don’t have all the say on the decor in the house, but I tend to come up with a lot of the ideas. Ever since I was little I have always loved decorating rooms and I used to say I wanted to be an interior designer when I grew up. Although I am currently far from doing that as a career, I do enjoy doing a bit of home renovating now and…

Happy Bank Holiday! Apologies for the lack of posts recently, I’ve been pretty busy this past week or so and I’ve just got back from Leeds Fest! I took these photos of my dressing room a few weeks ago and thought it would be nice to do a little ‘room tour’ of my dressing room.

I spent hours cleaning out my wardrobes (even under my bed!) and dusting all the little trinkets on my shelves and window sill. Everything needed a good clean and rearranging and I’m pleased to be able to relax in the evenings in a nice tidy bedroom…

Back in March I took part in a blogger competition (see my entry here) to renovate a piece of furniture, and I was lucky enough to win first prize! I was so so excited as the prize was a £300 NotOnTheHighStreet voucher and I love their website. I picked out all of my goodies right away and eagerly awaited their arrivals. As the items came from all different sellers on the website I got lots of separate parcels, so it was…
