Christmas with The Yorkshire Hare

Christmas in April? You’ve got to be kidding! Bear with me this post was originally published in December!

I have some pretty big expectations when it comes to Christmas. First off it has to be the decorations, it isn’t Christmas without a beautifully decorated tree and accessories, right? Now I have never had a big 6ft dreamboat of a tree, I have always had little ones (Christmas 2018 will be a game changer, I am hoping to get one in the January sales!) but nevertheless there is loads you can do with a small tree. Providing you get the right size decorations you can just about angle your camera to make them look like the big ones! A bit of Instagram fakery for you!

Its been 2 weeks since we got back from our last minute holiday to  Ibiza. Do I have the holiday blues? Yes. Yes I do! Its not the hot weather I am missing (it was a beautiful 26 degrees!) I am not really built to withstand long periods of warm temperatures! I find it rather uncomfortable but I still love nothing more than sunbathing all day!

Embarking on a new home journey

This post was originally written in October 2017, pre site transfer!

​So this is a big one, buying your first home is exciting, overwhelming and a little bit scary! I have learnt a few things quite quickly and it’s not easy! There’s so much advice flying at you from friends, family and colleagues that its hard to take it all in and process it in your mind into something you understand.

Decorating update…international women’s day special!

Picture

Just taking a picture of this bejewelled hanging star because of the wall paper in the background!
So the last blog post I wrote was about the start of our living room journey, we are ALMOST there!! The wall paper is now up, which was a challenge, when you have “bookshelves” to get straight and fully horizontal and your walls aren’t straight…thank you ‘70’s builders!
But with my dad and the long lost sister of the chuckle brothers (aka my best friend, and I know she reads these!) we got it sorted! All joking aside, we couldn’t have done it without her engineering brain, AND while we are talking about it, AND as it was International women’s day yesterday, can I just say that she is a female engineer and pretty badass too! #stronggirlsclub

Collaborating with Sarah Boddy

Picture

I was super excited when the team behind Sarah Boddy offered me the chance to collaborate with them, even more so when I got to choose pieces from the range to enjoy! You would have thought I would make a bee line for the Hare range (its so lovely!) but I decided to change things up and go with another Countryside beauty, the humble Pheasant! And I love the design, the colours are beautiful and it is instantly obvious that a lot of time and care has gone into each piece.

Interiors & Instagram

So, I started my interior and lifestyle blogging journey in January this year, it was kind of a quick thing really, I just did it one day after we decided to start looking to buy a house that I wanted to start a blog and an Instagram about interiors and lifestyle. I couldn’t just stick to interiors, we don’t have a house that I can take photos of and share my ‘vision’ so I wanted to be able to keep up posts and be able to share other things that I love too!

The White Sage Way

The White Sage Way

One of the great things about the home, interiors and lifestyle community is the people you get to meet, not just via social media but from buying from small businesses on Etsy. We all know I love shopping and Crystals, so when it comes to both, I might just be in my element!
I came across The White Sage Way and Linda whilst looking for little accessories to decorate my Instagram and Blog pictures, something different, dainty and pretty. I am already a massive fan of crystals and I had never ever seen any cut into little tiny hearts or stars, I knew I just had to have them for my pictures. I love all of them…I think Linda almost banned me from her Etsy shop, ‘oh I will just order a couple of those ones…but those are pretty too!’
