At Home with: Jenny from Let’s Talk Mommy

This month’s featured home is owned by Jenny from Let’s Talk Mommy. In case you haven’t already guessed by the spelling, Jenny originates from the good old U S of A. Jenny has the most exquisite styling and her home always looks immaculate. In fact her Instagram feed looks like something straight out of a Homes and Gardens magazine! If you…

iRobot’s Roomba 980: Too Good to be True?

With three teenagers, two dogs and a business to run, our house is always busy. To use one of my mother’s expressions, it often resembles Clapham Junction and that’s on a good day! I am therefore permanently on the look out for time-saving techniques and my life’s mission is to find the most efficient route to everything. When iRobot asked me…

A New Gadget, Embracing Our Little Hideaway and Falling in …

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]wo things to celebrate today: it’s Friday (what’s not to like?) and it’s one of my favourite times of the month because I get to share all of the things I’ve been loving lately. February is usually a dreary month that despite only being 28 (or 29) days long, seems to drag on forever. I know it’s not over yet but…

At Home with: Caro from The Twinkle Diaries

[dropcap]I [/dropcap]say this without an ounce of hesitation: you are going to fall in love with this month’s home, immediately! Full of quirky detail and that wonderfully eclectic mix of contemporary and vintage, it is just stunning. In fact this home very much reflects the owner, Caro, who describes herself as ‘a girl with big eyes and a happy heart’.…

Creating Extra Space with a Contemporary Garden Room

“Room tour please!” came the cry on Instagram last week, a stark reminder that I still hadn’t shared our mammoth building project garden room with you. In fact I am so tardy with this post that I can no longer legitimately describe our garden room as ‘new’! It has now been in full use since October of last year and although…

The Greatest Showman, Statement Boots and A Girlie Weekend #LittleLoves

In the past, I’ve hated January – it’s too long, too cold, too dark and there’s never enough money for the month. This year? It’s zipped by and we are now almost at the end! I am even noticing lighter evenings and boy is that a welcome sight. As it’s the last Friday of the month, I’m joining in with…

Best Makeup Products for 40+ Women, Recommended by 40+ Women

[dropcap]M[/dropcap]y skin changed when I turned 40 (probably a few years before actually, but who’s counting?) and so did my priorities. Above all else, I began to understand the benefit of spending a little more money on the right products. Where to start? I think I lost my way a bit with makeup when my children were small. Whilst I’ve…

At Home With…Pamela from Life with Munchers

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]’ve been looking forward to sharing this month’s home with you since I first made contact with the owner – Pamela from Life With Munchers. Having admired her home for some time across social media, I was excited to see more. It’s situated right at the other end of the UK to me, high up in the Scottish hills. Pam…

2017: The Year I Learned to Let Go

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he guests have gone, the decorations are down, it’s time to contemplate 2017. For the last five years, I’ve been kicking a new year off with the help of a workbook called Unravel Your Year by Susannah Conway. For someone who likes to reflect and plan, it’s an excellent tool that I would highly recommend. Before considering the new year…
