25. Nearly 26. Do I feel old? Not in my current job, I feel like one of the youngest (because I am) in the whole team but do I feel experienced? I actually do and that’s a great feeling. I thought I’d share my career journey so far because I loved reading Jess’s post here from a few months ago about her career journey since graduating and her journey to becoming a freelancer.
Ta-da! Another room in the house reno/decoration is almost perfect. Finally, our living room feels like a living room. There’s still some finishing touches to do like glossing the skirting board but that can wait when this is what we’re working with now – as opposed to grubby carpet and just a sofa as the sole piece of furniture in the room. What do you think?
Decorating is the most exciting part of any new home, room or season. Making your space your own is always the best and makes you feel all cosy and homely. Prints and wall art are really important to us and we love to express our personalities and interests with them. But, what’s the best way to choose the prints that you’re going to hang in your home? Here are a few tips and what we usually do…
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.
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!
Sorry, I can’t. I’m washing my hair.
Does anyone actually ever use that hilarious excuse? Maybe, I don’t know but I might start. I usually wash my hair every two days and then liberally spray my entire head in dry shampoo every other day. I used to wash my hair every day before dry shampoo was a thing and I am so glad we have all moved with the times because I just couldn’t be bothered to wash it every day these days. Sleep is definitely more of a necessity! My Sunday routine often consists of face masks and hair washing (post bathroom cleaning – obviously!).
