I am someone who really appreciates beauty, whether that comes in the form of a stunning sea view, a small child’s beaming smile, or a perfectly arranged shelf, I’m easy. Yes, you read that right – I will happily sit back and admire a beautiful shelf from the comfort of my armchair; why not? Many of you will already know that I’m not blessed with green fingers (I generally forget to water plants), in fact my home has more fake plants in it than I care to admit! But, I am always up for a challenge, so when Wayfair (one of the world’s largest online retailers of home furnishings and décor) asked me if I would like to try my… View Post

September is a busy month; I’m sure it’s the same for most of us. Firstly there’s a new school year to contend with (finding a ‘new normal’ always takes longer than anticipated) and in this house, the new term is closely followed by our wedding anniversary plus two birthdays on consecutive days at the end of the month. I don’t know about you but I am always itching to get back into a routine after the summer holidays and usually have a few projects up my sleeve to keep me busy. Let’s just say that September comes with high hopes! For some reason, I’ve found this September harder than usual. We’ve had so many new routines to get used to and… View Post

When I first caught sight of Becky’s photographs I was totally blown away; not only is it beautiful but she has done much of the house renovating herself and the attention to detail is stunning. You can see immediately that this home has been a total labour of love, with every inch being carefully planned and thought through. Oh and Becky really does love pink! Fancy a nosey? Who lives in your home? I live with my husband Ryan and daughters, Ava and Thea. This photo was taken in the field behind our house, about a year ago. When I… View Post

It feels slightly odd to be wrapping up summer when I’m sitting here in a t-shirt, looking out at blue skies, with temperatures still well into their twenties. This summer really has been incredible and one to remember for so many reasons. If you’re a regular here then you will know that I never like to embark on a new season until I’ve contemplated the last – the good the bad and the ugly – so here we go with my evaluation of summer 2018. Inside Summer 2018 For the benefit of any newbies, the Inside section of my blog generally refers to the clutter that ruminates around my head on a daily basis; in other words, a little bit… View Post

Remember this feature? I’ve not done it for a while. In fact over the summer I’ve let my blog slide a little so I’m looking forward to picking it back up again and getting into a routine. Instead of sharing my favourite finds every month (let’s face it, that ain’t happening), I’ve decided to write a seasonal post and not restrict myself to only sharing five things ‘cos quite frankly, I’ve got oodles to share with you in this summer edition. Shall we make a start? Favourite Home Find English Country Bunting from The Cotton Bunting Company – £55.00 for 25m I decided back in June that I wanted to pretty up our garden a bit. I mean it’s lovely… View Post
