This is a really interesting and helpful guest post from Chill Insurance – helping you manage your money and still get the house of your dreams! As a young person who will undoubtedly be getting on the property ladder in a few years, I think it’s really important to know these things.

How much can you really afford to spend on your dream home?

Interiors: Spring Cushion Wishlist

Spring time is all about lighter colours, new textures and cute animal faces apparently! I’ve scoured some of the best high street home ware retailers for some fresh new soft furnishings. I’m loving the Baines & Fricker pastel cushion covers, they remind me of the tea-towels you used to draw your face on in primary school, really cute. I also really love the shiny texture of the metallic cushions next to some super fluffy fuzz from the Yorkshire Linen Co, they make a really cool contrast. What do you think of my spring cushion wish list? Check out the rest with the links below! How cute is the French Bulldog? cushions

Check out the crazy Outdoor Living Pods below, they’re so cool!

My First Attempt at Shelf Styling

Here’s a little interiors update with my first shelf styling attempt in our living room! Our house is a mix of modern with some mid-century touches and a mix of monochrome with colour added in – plus it’s a mix of both me and Luke so the finished product is something that looks a little bit like this. I love shelf styling, I think it’s so clever – I’ve been poring over Pinterest for a few weeks now and finally decided to give it a little go.

Garden Update & Inspo

Over the past 8 weeks, Luke and his dad have been working hard every weekend on our garden to get it ready for the summer. Those of you that follow the blog might know that this our second house in a year but that’s a long story best saved!

As the weather starts to pick up, I thought it’d be nice to share some of the work we’ve done and also share some of our garden inspo and the things we really want for it!

El Famoso Traditional Tattoo Prints

Following on my last post about Brixton, I picked these up after our amazing brunch at Wild Caper from a little shop in the market. I saw them in the window and just had to pick them up for our house. We’re both really into tattoos and the flat, traditional style so these prints really jumped out at me. I’ve put them in our bedroom – our frame wall is really taking shape now. If you love these as much as we do, you can grab them from East End Prints online. Check out Tat Girl & Russian Tat Man!

Current Lusting – Saturday Wishlist!

Being on a serious spending ban definitely makes you want to shop more! Working in social media also doesn’t help as I’m constantly on retailer websites looking up new collections, fresh trends and the like so I’m always spotting new things I’d love to have in my wardrobe. These are the current things I’m dying to get my hands on… There’s a little monochrome and gold theme going on apparently, I hadn’t noticed until I put it together!

Bedroom Inspiration & Oliver Bonas Wishlist

Another interiors obsession post coming at you! This time, I’ve discovered Oliver Bonas, an awesome brand who stock the nicest homewares ever.

I’ve been doing some Pinteresting, of course and I’m loving the natural base with bright pops of colour look at the moment. I’ve narrowed it down to three elements in this post that I think are necessary to get this fresh interior look.

My Spare Room's Makeover

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!

First Home Wishlist

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!
