Balmy Nights: Beat the Heat for a Better Sleep

Smack dab in the middle of summer. That's where we are right now and while we haven't quite had the unrelenting heat of last year (I seem to remember our back yard brown and yellow, burnt to a crisp by now), the temperatures are set to rise again next week. Of course,...

Introducing My Brand New Finishing Touch Styling Service!

I can not be more excited to be sharing the details of a new little venture (EEEK!) but first a bit of background... For a very long time, I have been thinking of how I can take Swoon Worthy to the next level - not so much in terms of the blog itself but the ways in...

Designing My Dream Kitchen with John Lewis of Hungerford

I debated whether to share the design of our kitchen on the blog. I didn't want to ruin any 'surprises' for when it's finally installed but at the same time, I do love reading about other people's journeys in creating spaces they love. So, after doing a poll on...

Summer Garden Reveal in Peaches and Pinks

I think sometimes this is just how things go when you are updating your home: one small change leads to another and another and then all of a sudden, you're knee deep into a brand new look! (Whoops) And this is essentially what's happened with our back garden this...

Design Advice

If you’ve ever stared into your room and knew something wasn’t quite right but you didn’t know how to fix it, then you’re in the right place. Long ago, I felt exactly the same. I had a million ideas but no idea how to execute them.

With my advice posts, I’m spilling all those interior design secrets that took me years of trial and error to learn. Check out all my how-to’s, tips and tricks here.

My Home

My blog is a place I love to share my own home and there are a wealth of posts about the changes and updates we’ve made both in our current and our previous home with all the lessons I’ve learned along the way.

I catalogue our entire journey of each room through its evolution and so if you love to have a nosy around other people’s homes (and why wouldn’t you?!), then check out all my posts to see what we’re working on next.

Stuff I Like

If there’s one thing I like shopping for more than anything else, it’s my house. So I’m always on the lookout for beautiful things – from soft furnishings to furniture, accessories, lighting, art and more.

These are the posts where I shout about brands I’ve come across that I adore and pull together fantasy moodboards, my best shopping finds and gorgeous pieces to create the perfect look – from budget bargains to luxury splurges.

Best of the UK Summer Sales for Home

Lifestyle

It’s not all just interiors around here. As much as interior design is my biggest passion, I’m a nuanced multi-layered person just like you! I adore travelling, cooking, makeup and beauty products, fashion and sometimes I just need to talk about being a flawed human.

These are the posts I explore topics from my favourite breakfast recipe to what it’s like being an ex-pat to getting a better work-life balance and more.

A Romantic Break at The Swan Hotel in The Lake District

We've spent the last few months in the midst of a construction site. Building work on your home is messy, stressful and chaotic and while I'm so happy we're finally doing the work we'd planned since we moved into our home, a break from all the dust was something we...

How I Changed My Money Mindset to Earn More & Work Less

Money. It's one of those subjects that seems to be a bit taboo. It makes people uncomfortable. Not enough and you feel somehow that you are less than, that you aren't doing as well as you should be, that you're not succeeding. More than enough and you feel you should...

DIY

I’ve been a big fan of do-it-yourself for a long time both for the cost-savings as well as the gleeful satisfaction of a job well done. But if there’s one thing I’m not a fan of, it’s DIYs that look like DIYs. So you won’t be finding that here.

While I’ve had lots of things I’ve tried that haven’t gone exactly to plan, I only share those projects that have been super successful for me. And while I don’t consider myself a super crafty person, I do love creating things that are really easy to do but also create an amazing end result. You’ll find all my most successful ventures into craft and DIY in these posts and happily, no one will ever know you’ve done it yourself until you proudly tell them so – because you’ll want to, trust me.

DIY Display Storage Upcycled from Gift Boxes

I think every time I post a little craft, I say I'm not crafty. I think that's because I look at my good friends who are truly creative and incredible at various crafts (currently looking at you Alex, Maria and Nicolette and SO MANY OTHERS), I just can't even compare...

Blogging

I’ve been blogging since 2010 – that’s practically a dinosaur in this industry. Long before Instagram or Pinterest was even around, I’ve been creating content and sharing it with thousands of people online. I’ve learned a hell of a lot about blogging in that time and have had to continuously adapt in an ever-changing world.

I often share my tips with my fellow bloggers so whether you’ve just started your blog, are a bit of a seasoned pro or even if your just curious about what happens here behind the scenes, you can check out these posts to learn more about this crazy, fast-changing industry we call home.

Why I Hate Being Called an ‘Influencer’

Ughhh... "Influencer". I swear every time I hear that word, I die a little inside. The word is pretty new, after all, and I've been doing this blogging lark for more than 8 years. I never got into it to make money and while the blog has grown and yes, opportunities...

How to Use Google Analytics to Grow Your Blog

I recently shared my tips on SEO for Bloggers and while that's one subject that many bloggers are frightened to death of, there is another that many bloggers fear almost just as much. Google Analytics is one of those things that most bloggers know they need but once...
