At the beginning of last year I did a blog post on my travel plans for 2018, so I thought I’d do something similar for 2019! I’ve already managed to get a few little trips booked in for this year which I’m very excited about, but I’m also starting to think about a bigger holiday for 2020. I’m trying to save up as much money as possible in 2019 as I plan to sell the flat and buy a ‘proper house’, so hopefully then next year I can go all out on a big holiday! Here are my plans so…

I haven’t really had much of a chance to blog about Christmas yet! But I’m really excited this year for a number of reasons – I have a new baby nephew and it will be his first Christmas, Gav and I are planning a relaxing Christmas morning together at home, before going to my parents’ house for a big Christmas dinner! Unfortunately I have to go back to work on the 27th December, but I am also celebrating as in the new year I will be starting my NEW JOB! More about that coming soon… As I’ve now completed my…

Next weekend is my 27th birthday! Yup, I am one year closer to 30. And yes.. that is pretty terrifying. But this year I finally feel like I’m growing up; I started my new job and a career in digital marketing, and hopefully I will shortly have my foot on the property ladder! But even grown ups can have birthday wish lists, right?   As I’ve been busy saving up for boring house related stuff (I know I keep going on about it, but I’m just so excited!), I haven’t had much chance to treat myself lately. So here’s a little…

I mentioned in my last blog post that I’m currently in the middle of getting my first place (it’s so close now.. fingers crossed!), and therefore I cannot wait to have a place to myself to fill with pretty things! Lately I seem to be forever looking at cute little homeware bits and pieces online and whenever I go out.   Even in supermarkets I can’t resist having a little look at the home section when I should really be just be picking up some bread. In fact, a lot of supermarkets actually tend to have to best finds! As I’m…

I always enjoy putting together a wishlist post as there’s nothing I love more than a bit of window shopping! In this wishlist I have put together some of my favourite home accessories that I have spotted online which are all copper or marble themed. Copper homeware accessories are a big trend this season and although I’m pretty late on the old bandwagon, I think it will be around for quite a whole! I love the fresh white look of the marble and the stylish gold accents, the two go so nicely together. Copper Homeware Accessories  Marble Base Table Lamp…

So payday is still practically two weeks away.. but a girl can dream right? January is always the looongest month ever because everyone is skint after Christmas and the weather is cold and miserable and everything is back to normal and awful.  But ho hum… it can’t be long now until summer, right? Despite payday being practically forever away, I thought I’d put together a little wishlist of things I’ve had my eye on lately and plan to splash out on soon. How beautiful is this red velvet vintage party dress from Rokit? It’s a one-off piece from the 90’s…
