I’m in the process of rekindling a passion for my home so here you will see me getting the paint brush out (aka perusing the colour charts whilst paying someone else to do it).

I am trying to get over my fear of turning into a ‘frumpy mum’ by exploring some new fashion ideas and I’ve promised myself that I will begin purchasing something other than the cheapest moisturiser on the shelf. Where do I start?

Despite my somewhat sketchy record of sticking to anything, I am also exploring some new hobbies and fitness ideas. If you need a good laugh, you’ve come to the right place!
