My Christmas Dining Room

While I'm fully aware that there are a whole bunch of bloggers currently showing off their gorgeous Christmas decorations, buying guides and tips for the holidays, I feel like I'm really failing when it comes to the holiday season this year. The truth is that every...

Man Cave to Glam Snug: A (Long Overdue) Update!

So it's been 8 weeks since I shared any updates on the man cave and I actually feel rather guilty about that! The whole remodel has been a bit slow going with all the little crappy bits and pieces that needed boxing in/fixing that Wayne had been getting to as and when...
