Many pet owners are guilty of pampering their pets and giving them treats, love and attention no matter what. I’m no exception, as I can never resist treating my boys to a little indulgence and lots of cuddles. I must have spent a small fortune over the years on buying them various gifts such as fancy cat beds (that they never use), exciting new toys (which they ignore), sparkly collars (which they always end up losing) and all sorts of grooming…

So it’s been over a year since I moved into my own place after living at home for 26 years! I was never one of these people that was ‘ashamed’ about living at home even though I was in my twenties; it made sense for me.

Wouldn’t it be nice to create a relaxing quiet space where you can chill out after a long day? I feel like bathrooms can often be the most neglected room in the home as there’s not much flexibility when it comes to décor, space, and how it looks. But creating your…

I know, I know.. I’m late with my Instagram round up post again! Sometimes I just cannot keep up with blogging at the same time as normal life. I feel like I at least have an excuse this month as I went away on a girly blogger trip to Prague at the beginning of September so I’ve been a little busy. More about that coming soon! August already seems forever ago and I must admit that I am actually quite sad…
