After 3 days of DIY and a whole load of paint we’ve finally finished decorating our guest room! It looks cosmetically lovely now, if you don’t look at the floor or into the corners too closely. I live in a really old house and it was pretty run down when we took it on so this is as good as we can get it as we also rent! But, I think it looks quite lovely now and I’d be happy to have people to stay whereas before I wouldn’t have even slept in there myself by choice!
This week on Grazia’s #WhatToDoThisWeek feature I’ve recommended the super cool Sobar in Nottingham. It’s a completely 0% alcohol establishment and is run 100% not for profit. All of their profits go to drink and drug related charities around Nottingham and I think that pretty sweet! They also so amazing milkshakes so it’s become a weekend stop-off for Luke and I when we’re in town! You can check out the Grazia post and what all the other regional bloggers have been recommending here.
Thinking about Christmas in July is a bit mind boggling, but when Paperchase invite you to see some of their lovely goodies, you can only say yes! I went on behalf of UNiDAYS and you can read the full post about the collection here! I thought I’d just share some of my favourite snaps of the day that I took. Remember if you’re a student you can grab 10% off all full priced goodies with Paperchase & UNiDAYS.
Just a little bit of exciting news on the blog today. I now have a weekly blogger feature on Grazia sharing my knowledge of my city and what to do for the week & the weekend coming up! This week I featured Suede Bar, an awesome Pizza place just off the Lace Market in Nottingham. You can check them out here and you can check out the post and see what the other bloggers are suggesting from their cities here!
As you might have heard if you follow me on Twitter, I’ve just found out that I’ve passed my degree from university with a 2:1 and I’m starting my new job on Monday and nothing gets me more excited than being able to whip out some fresh stationary and making a little list of anything!
June 15th is Father’s Day just in case you’ve forgotten, it’s tomorrow! I’ve put together a last minute gift guide for you showcasing a few great fragrances that you can pick up for your dad.
I noticed the other day that Boots have some great fragrance offers on so I’ve made this post about fragrance and aftershave. This Davidoff one is only £19.99 down from about £40 I think so it’s half price and smells lovely, it’s quite a sophisticated scent, so perfect so smart daddies. They also have a fab offer on Lacoste Red, 75ml for £24.99, which is a really good deal too.
Nigel’s Eco Store is an amazing little homeware and lifestyle shop online where you can pick up anything and everything related to your home but they all have an eco friendly beginning or a twist! I just thought I’d share with you all some bits I recently picked up from there for the house. I love reading haul posts so here’s my most recent one.
Pretty Polly are a brand that are iconic for women’s leg wear and hosiery. Today I’m bringing you a little post all about their latest venture into nightwear and lingerie. It’s very picture heavy because I think the pictures say so much more than me rambling on. You can see the quality and the prettiness of them without me telling you!
My love of stationary is ridiculous and I picked these up for my little sisters as they love it too! You can get loads more from Mustard Gifts.
So, our new house is all you’ll hear me talking about at the moment but sorry, not sorry! So exciting. Anyway, a new house wouldn’t be complete without a little wish list would it? I’m dying to get a DAB digital radio, preferably a beautiful retro/vintage looking one like the Roberts radios in the pretty pastel colours. Next up, pretty plates are always a must for when people come over for tea of course and these Cath Kidston ones are just perfectly pretty. I’ve also got some CK towels in the mix there, I’m loving polka dots at the moment. On the china/crockery note, Luke needs an L mug because I’ve got an A one and it’s my favourite!
