Small Business Saturday

​Today is Small Business Saturday and inspired by the lovely Catherine Caton’s Instagram post this morning I would like to share with you some of the small businesses that I follow, have bought from, plan to buy from in the future and some that I have just discovered. We all get caught up in the mass produced cheap…

The long awaited floor…

I’ve had quite a few people ask me about our new floor, having seen snippets of it in my Instagram and Facebook posts, so I thought I’d share some more details and pics here, in the hope that it could help others on their journey to a beautiful floor. So, it’s taken a while, MANY…

Life goes on.

Hello my lovelies, it’s been a bit of a while, again! Since I last did some writing here I’ve turned another year older and I do actually feel a tiny little bit wiser! I’ve decided to try and not sweat the small stuff, each day I need to think about all the wonderful things I have in…

This .com shit ain’t working.

I’ve been doing some soul searching recently, I’ve realised certain things aren’t making me as happy as I would like them to and the balance in my life is very much off. When I started this blog it was because I enjoyed sharing things I had achieved with you lovely people, but somewhere along the…

Dotcom Gift Shop parcel of treats.

It’s always lovely to get a knock on the door and be handed a big parcel of wonderful treats, lately the only things that seem to arrive at our house are wooden floor samples and bills, but today is an exception. The lovely people at Dotcom Gift Shop have sent the girls some wonderful Summer…

Inside/Outside Living.

I wrote a piece for an online magazine, which now won’t be used for one out of my control, nothing to do with them not liking it reason or another, but hey ho, I thought I’d share it with you guys instead. I’m ill and have spent the entire day watching crappy tv and trying to…

Half term hang out.

It’s half term and the week has been long and short and lovely and irksome all in one. I thought I’d stop by quickly and let you know what we’ve been up to. I’m sorry this is just a quick half update but I’m feeling quite distracted from blogging at the moment and I’m just…

Birthdays, beer and Burritos…

  Today my lovely husband celebrates turning 40 and we threw him a little gathering of close family and friends for lunch at Gilmore’s Golf, one of those little under the radar, slightly rough round the edges, gem of a place. Amazing, fresh and vibrant Mexican food, Stu’s favourite beer on tap (happy coincidence), super friendly lovely staff and…

A little hello..

This morning I thought I would say a proper hello and thank you to you lovely people. I’ve been writing my blog for a little over 5 months now and the response I have had has been so heartwarming. It started as a way of getting my thoughts down, giving them a bit of order…

Guest blog for Unique Home Stays.

A few months ago Unique Home Stays asked me if I would be interested in writing an article for their Interior Inspiration Guest Blog and of course I said yes. The properties they manage and advertise throughout the country are inspirational and what holiday dreams are made of. You can read my blog here. Enjoy x

Inspired by Kat Molesworth.

When you’re a mum to young children it’s not everyday you get to fully indulge in your own interests and passions. It’s very much all about them, tailored around their needs, but yesterday was all about me, my interests, meeting inspirational people and just generally filling myself up with good feelings, recharging the adult part…
