If homeware shopping isn’t your favourite thing then I’m not sure we can be friends… Joking, obv we can but if you want to chat about homeware I’m your girl. Shopping is all kinds of fun for yourself but for the house it’s so much more fun isn’t it? I’ve been loving the summer sales that have been going on this month and wanted to share some amazing finds with you all! I would normally post only on Sundays, that’s been my regular routine but because I don’t want these bargains to get away I thought I’d do an earlier one this week.
When it comes to cute prints for my home and buying cards for birthdays and other occasions to give to my bestest I always love to grab them from independent artists, illustrators and all round creative amazing people that are just doing their thing and making incredible goods!
I wanted to share a small selection of some that I love on Instagram and some I’ve bought from in the past so can vouch for their amazing quality. Leave me more recommendations for cute Etsy shops and illustrators in the comments, I always love to discover newbies.
When it comes to home décor, flooring matters, it takes up a significant percentage of the surface area of any room, obviously! Everyone always notices the floor, even if they’re not aware of the fact that they do.
The floor you choose really sets the tone. It can also have a huge impact on how spacious a room feels. If you are decorating and want to make it feel larger, here are a few tricks!
Someone thought it was totally OK to give us a mortgage (here’s looking at you Natwest, no going back now) – so we bought a house! Hence why things have been a little thin on the ground and sporadic over the past few weeks – it gets a bit stressful, dunnit?
Now we’re in thanks to the in-laws of dreams and a lot of hard work and there’s not a cardboard box in sight after two and a half days of unpacking and sorting out. There’s something to be done in every room and it’s going to be at least a year, if not longer until everything is exactly how we want it to be, let’s not talk about the kitchen, but we’ll get there. So, here’s introducing a new section of proper interiors onto the blog. I’ve always loved interiors but living in rented flats and houses really limits you to basically changing your sheets and hanging a few prints if you’re handy with the Polyfilla so I’m really looking forward to finally being able to decorate like a grown up.
This post is 100% not sponsored. I bloody wish. Matalan, hit me up babes – we’d be a collab made in heaven, not gonna lie. I’m simply just a homeware junkie, Pinterest addict and we’re in the process of buying our first proper home so as you can expect, I am all about shopping for budget-friendly buys to pimp out our new pad. Yas! Here are 10 of my favourite things that Matalan are stocking at the moment. I dare you to not click add to basket.
Sleep is a funny thing. I think we forget how important it is and how much we need it until we have a bad night’s sleep. Then, all hell breaks loose and the day ahead can be a struggle. I’m definitely in this camp – I forget how much I need sleep until I have a poor night. I don’t sleep well when I’m stressed or have things on my mind so I always find that focusing on my evening routine can really help me unwind and relax. So, if you’re like me and struggle with the ol’ switch off then these three tips might help!
Spring is nearly rolling around and our fluffy blankets are being put back into storage! As soon as it gets above 10 degrees I feel like I need a little home update to bring it into the new season. Some people might think it’s silly to think about styling your home for the new season but I think it definitely makes a difference. You don’t want thick blankets and overpowering cinnamon candles when we’re heading into April, do ya? Definitely not!
Hello, January! We’re into a new year and it’s time to do all those things that we’ve wanted to do for ages and for me. one of them is reading. I was bought some lovely books for Christmas and I can’t wait to get stuck in to them and do a little bedtime reading instead of scrolling. Here are the three books that I’ll be indulging in over January, they’re all different subjects but they’re all going to be super useful.
Browsing Pinterest for new ideas is one of the best ways (and my favourite ways) to get started when you’re planning any kind of interior makeover. From fixing up a single room to refreshing your entire home, you’ll find wonderful ideas for décor, furnishings and quirky artworks. And if you adore an upcycling challenge, Pinterest is the place to do your research. Here are just a few of the best home makeover tips to get you excited.
The festive season is well and truly here and I am all about getting sorted for Christmas. I’m wrapping gifts, buying advent calendars, booking in Christmas catch-ups and parties and popping up cute Christmas lights! Yas. Speaking of Christmas lights, how awesome are these customisable alphabet lights from Cox & Cox? If you know me, you’ll know that I am all about anything that I can customise, personalise or generally have my name on. I was all about those velvet headbands with my name on in the Nineties, so, why should that change? You could write Merry Christmas, your names, Ho Ho Ho, reindeer’s names, anything that’ll make you feel festive af.
