So you’ve probably seen most of the room already as it’s been in my recent OOTD shots, but now it’s finally finished and I can show you it all! So here it is, after about 6 weeks of hard work from Dad (and me!) we’ve finally finished it! Everything in the room is brand new, so I’ll let you know where it’s all from under each photo 🙂  As you probably remember, I won a £1000 Laura Ashley voucher, and so…

I would do pretty much anything to be able to play house with a handsome young man. However, my desperation fails me haha, therefore I have to live at home with dearest Mum and Dad.

I recently took a trip to Ikea and picked up a big plain white cushion with an attached cover. It was only £3, and I thought I would buy it and do myself a DIY project using some of the pretty fabrics…

This blog post is my entry for the Laura Ashley Room Refresh blogger competition which I was invited to take part in. The room that I would absolutely love to refresh is our ‘box room’. I live at home with my parents, and the house is quite normal and tidy all over.. except one room. The box room.  It’s the smallest room in the house, and what was originally a smart study/office room now seems to have become a room full…
