It’s a brand new decade, which means that this is the perfect time to embrace a little change and start thinking about what you want to do with your house this year. If you are on the fence about selling your property, then perhaps giving it a spruce up will give you the clarity you need. Either you’ll increase the value of your home and make more money on it when sell it, or you’ll increase the desire you have to live in a newly renovated space! Adding to your home is going to enhance it. It’s very rare for…

During our stay in Chester we spent some time at the gloriously festive Christmas Market! Chester Chistmas Market is free to enter and is on until 22nd December – so make sure you pop down there soon! It has over 60 traditional wooden chalets in the heart of the city centre right next to the cathedral. Don’t forget to give me a follow on Instagram (@victoriajane6) and check out my Chester highlight for more photos! The stalls sell a variety of unique, locally made produce, handmade crafts, Christmas decorations, jewellery, accessories and stocking fillers. It’s the perfect place to do…

Sleep is the most important part of your day, so the most important thing in your home and worth investing in is your mattress. At my old flat we slept on one of those mattresses that you see in the adverts on TV that roll up into a box and are made from 100% foam. This might sound comfortable but I never managed to get on with it and over the months the foam began to sink and was not comfy at all. So I was thrilled to be offered a new proper mattress to try from Warren Evans –…

We’re very near to completing on the purchase of our new house and we’re so excited to finally get the keys after waiting all these months! One of the things that we’re most looking forward to is having our own garden, as at the moment in the flat we have no outside space at all. We can’t wait to be able to use our new sun loungers in our very own (south facing!) garden. TJ Hughes recently sent me their Valencia duo set which includes two comfy relaxer chairs with built-in head rests and a handy small table with two…

Buying a house and getting a mortgage can seem daunting at first glance and you may not know where to start. Whether you’re a first time buyer or are looking to move on to a bigger place, it can be hard to begin the process of buying a home. I’ve previously shared with you my story of being a first time buyer and the process I went through when buying my flat. And now, two years later, I’m starting the process all over again as I am moving on to my new place! Even if you’re not ready to buy…

I have some exciting news! Earlier this year I put my flat up for sale and accepted an offer from a young couple looking to buy their first home. Which also means that I’m (hopefully..) buying new house! If you’ve been following my blog for a while then you’ll remember that back in 2017 I moved out of my parents house and into my own place which I spent lots of time doing up and making my own. I’m sad to be leaving my lovely little flat but I am SO excited to be moving on to bigger and better…
