This weekend I had a major spring clean of my bedroom, so I thought what a good time to do an updated room tour now it’s all nice and tidy! Not too much has changed since the last posts I did (here and here) in 2012 but I thought it would be nice to do a little catch up. I have sliding mirrored wardrobes so I have a bad habit of just hiding everything behind the doors and hoping no one…

A couple of weeks ago I went to Liams Mums house to visit, and I went armed with my camera so I could take some photos of her pretty home. I always like visiting as she has such a cute little house, that’s always spotlessly tidy and full of nice shabby chic things.

Even the pubs are chains here! But as I was planning a visit to some…

Happy 1st December everyone! Not long left now until the big day! I have not yet bought a single Christmas present. Naughty me! I have, however, started thinking about Christmas decorations and Christmas cake designs and other yummy treats. To be honest my favourite part of Christmas is the food. This evening I will be experimenting with my Christmas Cottage chocolate mould that I bought last year. I’m thinking of making a Chocolate cottage with sweets hidden inside for a couple…
