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.

I’ve already shared with you my bedroom and kitchen room tours, so this is the dining room edition! I say dining room, it’s not actually a separate room, more of a dining ‘area’ on one side of the living room next to the…

November was such a busy month for me with so much going on over the weekends and after work.  But December has been a little bit more chilled luckily which has meant that I’ve been fully embracing the festive period, and I spent 1st December getting our home ready for Christmas! I thought it was nice that 1st December fell on a Saturday this year as it meant we could spend the weekend together getting all Christmassy! Last year was the first Christmas in my own home and I had only just moved in, so I didn’t really have the…
