How to: Shop at Carboot Sales

I’ve been going to them before I could walk, it’s official, I LOVE CAR BOOT SALES.  When I was a child my dad used to wake up us every Sunday morning around 7am and drag us to multiple car boot sales. As a child I didn’t know any different. As a young teen I started to despise […]

DIY: Upcycled Drinks Trolley

  Granny tea trolley to alcoholic drinks cart. After much Instagram envy over the festive period (that was last Xmas and New Year), I discovered gin carts/drink trolleys/bar carts were becoming extremely popular. I mean who doesn’t want a mini bar in their own home?! (especially when it’s full of gin). Back in May of this year […]

My university experience – was it worth while?

As most people got their A-level results this week I thought I’d write about my very own experience and opinions on going to University. I hated school while I was there so going to sixth form didn’t interest me in the slightest. I’ve always been more creative than academic so couldn’t wait to go to […]

My Vintage, Moroccan, Bohemian Home

Welcome to my home! My eclectic style might not be to everyone tastes but this room is definitely my favourite in our house. As we only rent at the moment I haven’t been able to style the other rooms exactly to my taste. A lot of painting and ripping up carpets would be going ahead […]

DIY: Building a walk in wardrobe

I’ve been on a little blogging hiatus due to keeping up with all the great and not so great things life can throw at you… and I can’t believe we’re nearly in April already! So I’ve managed to start working on at least 1 of my 5 new year resolutions. One of which is to be more creative, hence the reason for this […]

Fashion fads and why I hate them

I’ve had a problem with faddy fashion trends from a young age. The way that something ‘trendy’ can flood high street stores and then within a few months it’s almost cringe to wear that one thing again. That thing you thought was really awesome and now it’s sat gathering dust because it’s ‘so last year’. I understand fashion is fast and that’s apart of the fun, but not when my beloved disco pants […]

My Goals for 2018

I’m currently writing this while in Spain (on new years eve) visiting my mum who recently immigrated here. I feel so grateful to have spent Christmas and these last few days in the sunshine with my family, that I can’t even remember what day it is. As I’ve been feeling so content with my life, […]

Budapest in December – Christmas Break

One gloomy, September morning, Jack text me whilst at work asking if I fancied a trip to Germany in December to visit the Christmas markets. With the thought of winter drawing in I jumped at the idea and booked the needed four days off work. He said we’d be going with friends of friends and would arrange the whole trip for us – what more could […]
