Did you know that 48% of people are unconcerned about risks to their health from doing DIY? How crazy is that? Half of the people surveyed by slatergordon.co.uk don’t care that they could get hurt or injure someone else by just doing a little DIY. These people be crazy. I mean 45% of these people would just drill into a wall. Calm your drills, guys.
I’ve become obsessed with the Refinery 29 Money Diaries! I don’t know why, maybe I’m just nosy, maybe I just want to know whether I spend a normal amount of money? I don’t know! If you’ve not read them, it’s basically an insight into what women with different salaries, different lives and who live in different areas of the UK spend every week. I also spotted that Gillian from Elevator Musik did her own version so I decided I would too!
Staying hydrated is a huge thing for me. I’m constantly drinking water both to keep myself hydrated and I’ve also got into the habit of carrying water everywhere because if my Invisalign, incase I need a quick drink to make them more comfortable or after I’ve had a coffee and there’s no time for a full teeth clean! If you want to read more about my Invisalign course, check out my blog post with all the lowdown. Even if I’m just heading out for a coffee, shopping, into town or whether I’m travelling or going to work, you’ll always find me with a bottle of water. I find that I get headaches really easily if I don’t top up my beverage levels!
I’ve always thought that mismatched, crazy Christmas trees have so much more personality that perfect decorated, stuck to a colour theme trees. This post is short and sweet today but I just had to share the cutest Harrods Christmas decorations that I’ve added to my tree this year. I mean, how cute is Hugh the bear in ornament form? I’m also 100% obsessed with the sparkly tartan beauty and the purple, ivory and gold tear drop shaped bauble.
If your bathroom isn’t a space that you’re in love with, then that’s got to change. How can you possibly relax and unwind in a space that you don’t love? You can’t! So, if you’ve fallen out of love with the design and decor of your bathroom, it’s imperative that you do something about it.
I’ve been listening to a lot of the Girl Boss Radio podcast by Sophia Amoruso – the founder of Nasty Gal. I featured it in my 3 Podcasts You Need To Listen To post a few weeks ago, check that out if you haven’t already! She interviews loads of great business women over a huge range of subjects and areas of business and recently one of them said something that really resonated with me.
Tucked away in a corner of Sheffield’s Creative Quarter is Steam Yard Coffee Co, a gem of a coffee shop that’s guaranteed to satisfy your weekend caffeine and sugar cravings. We’ve been following them on Instagram for a while and have been drooling over our iPhone screens at their incredible doughnuts and pastries. We ventured down (or, actually up!) to Sheffield last weekend to check them out and do a little shopping and we weren’t disappointed.
This is by no means a photography masterclass. I’m constantly working on my photography and feel like it’s improved but I know I’ve definitely got a long way to go with it. One thing I’ve learnt along my blogging journey, if you could call it that, is the fact that props are everything. We may not all be blessed with gorgeous apartments, marble kitchen work surfaces, and amazing light all the time but you can fake it ’til you make it with the addition of some seriously good props.
