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. Each room is filled with vintage and retro homeware and sweet decorations. A heart shaped wreath even adorns her front door!  Her kitchen is my favourite room of the house, with an Emma Bridgewater mug collection, and old style cooker and refridgerator, and genuine vintage bits and…

As an active baker I often have cakes and cupcakes lying around the place. I love pretty china and have a little bit of an obsession with cake stands! I tend to only use them for special occasions to be honest, but I also have a couple in my room for keeping bits and pieces on. They’re just so pretty! I have restrained from buying any of these bargain cake stands as I have enough, but I couldn’t help but share my finds with you. From only £6 you can pick up your own piece of vintage style homeware! The…

I’ve always loved browsing the Urban Outfitters website, and recently I came across some really cute items which I think would make perfect stocking fillers. I never realised before how reasonably priced some of their homeware and gift items are, especially when you apply a discount code. I treated myself to a few goodies as they had 25% off homeware items at the time, so I managed to get quite a few lovely pieces at a discount. When I first saw this pretty floral wall hanging I thought it was just a nice canvas picture. I’d fallen in love with…

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 of family members.. we’ll see how tonights experiment goes! Also, this afternoon I went hunting for a Christmas bedding…

Cute things alert! I’m a sucker for browsing the H&M website religiously a few times a week, and look at their newest arrivals! They don’t stock their homeware instore which I think is a massive shame, but they have a really amazing range online at the moment. I literally want everything! Here’s a few of my favourites that I’ve put together into a little wishlist. I’ve bought myself the reindeer plate because I think it’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. And it will look nice with cake on it. WANT IT ALL. Don’t forget you can still use two…

I just wanted to do a quick post to show you the chair that I now have in my dressing room. This wooden Welsh chair was my Mum’s but she let me repaint it because the wood was too dark to look nice anywhere. Now it’s been given a fresh new lease of life, and I think it looks lovely in it’s new home after it’s make over! The solid wood was hard to paint with a paintbrush, so my Dad airbrushed it with white paint after I gave it a good sanding down. I love white furniture because it…
