Can You DIY Shutters? (Hint: Yep, You Can)

Can You DIY Shutters? (Hint: Yep, You Can)

Long before we even found our home, while we were still living in our previous home on the outskirts of Manchester, I had a dream. And that dream was that we would have window shutters. I know, it's a strange one, but bear with me here. I'd seen them on so many homes...

The Reveal of My Tiny Makeup Room & Vanity Space

The Reveal of My Tiny Makeup Room & Vanity Space

If you follow me over on Instagram and watch my Instagram Stories, you'll know I've been busy working away on the tiniest (and possibly quirkiest) room in my house. I'd initially deemed it the 'Jack n' Jill' room as it's a term used in the States to describe bathrooms...

How I’m Phasing the Bedroom Makeover!

How I’m Phasing the Bedroom Makeover!

So as you probably know, we've recently had some electrical work done where the living room, master bedroom and both hallways were rewired. It's messy work but it's one of those things that is always better to get out of the way before you do any decorating and once...

Let There Be Light! Updates in the Living Room

And.... I'm back! So I've had a whirlwind couple of weeks whilst I've been away from the blog - some of it dusty and messy, some of it rather lovely. The week before last, as you may recall, we had the electrics replaced in the living room, master bedroom and hallways...

How I’m Making Do With an Ugly Kitchen (For Now)

So I asked the other day on Instagram what you'd like to see next on the blog - our plans for the garden or my ugly kitchen. And, funny enough, the majority chose my ugly kitchen in the poll. We are always told as bloggers that people want to see beautiful,...

How I’ve Styled the Dining Room (For Now)

Okay, let's just start off this post by saying, I'm not happy with this room. Not really even as just a 'temporary situation'. There are a whole host of reasons why this is not even close to what I want this space to eventually look like, starting with the fact that...

The Compromises We Made When We Bought Our House

The Compromises We Made When We Bought Our House

Ahh compromise. It's one word we hear repeatedly when people talk about house-hunting. I swear Kirsty and Phil must say it at least 12 times in every single episode of Location, Location, Location. And it was something we were fully aware of - after a while, anyway -...

My Boho Glam Black Bathroom Budget Refresh

My Boho Glam Black Bathroom Budget Refresh

I didn't know whether to call this post a 'before and after' or a 'refresh' or a 'makeover' because in my head, they are all slightly different things. I'm not sure I've really done enough to warrant a 'before and after' but I'd say it was more than just a refresh....

How I’ve Styled Our Living Room (for now!)

As you probably know, we moved into our new (old!) home just over a week ago now and the first room I knew I wanted to tackle was the living room. In my experience, it's always good to have at least a couple of rooms sorted as quickly as possible when moving house -...

So by way of a little update - we have finally exchanged contracts and we have a new move date of the 23rd March - yep, that's next Friday! Can I get a HUZZAH!? I'm relieved and excited and a little bit stressed if I'm honest but ultimately, very very happy. I'm sick...

At some point in the next few months, Wayne and I will be taking on our biggest project to date. For those waiting on news, nope, we haven't moved yet. We've had some major delays over the last couple of weeks and I can't pretend it hasn't been excruciatingly...

Moving Diaries Part VI: An update on our move!

So, I'm absolutely gutted to say that, despite my announcement on Monday, we were not able to move today (Friday). I know there will be disappointment as you are waiting on me to share more of the new house but alas, the buying and selling system in this country is so...

My Favourite Pieces I Got For My Home In 2017

My Favourite Pieces I Got For My Home In 2017

So first of all, I must apologise for the radio silence around here for the last week. I was hit by a nasty bug that pretty much just wiped me out for the best part of a week. I'm still not well, mind you, but at least I am out of bed and mostly functioning like a...
