10 moving house tips that will make moving easier and less stressful

10 moving house tips that will make moving easier and less stressful

Moving house is the definition of STRESSFUL. People really are not joking when they say it’s one of the most stressful things you can do in life. Throw in an ill parent, a move across the country and a worldwide pandemic and it’s definitely an adventure! Because of my parents age and health issues, this move came out of the blue. Meaning it had to be organised quickly and efficiently and most of the physical packing had to be done by me. I’m so grateful to friends and family who have helped out as it’s been a real team effort…

Redecorating our living room in a coastal colour palette

Redecorating our living room in a coastal colour palette

I’ve always kept my love of interiors quite close to my chest. As a student, I was skint and dreaming of fine art and beautiful furniture seemed years if not decades away. I spend a lot of time on Pinterest scrolling and my new obsession is grey and navy living and dining rooms. I’m really enjoying documenting our interior decorating journey. It will become even more exciting once we buy our house, but for now, as renters we are only allowed to do so much. Our downstairs is made up of 3 rooms. A hallway from the front door leads…

Zoflora: my favourites for making the house smell amazing!

Zoflora: my favourites for making the house smell amazing!

If you’re obsessed with Zoflora, we can be friends. Thanks to lockdown, I’ve reverted back to my household cleaning obsession. I remember when I first started following Mrs Hinch a couple of years ago. The flurry she caused about keeping your house clean made it actually exciting to buy cleaning products! To be honest, I was grateful for it back in 2018 as I had just moved in with Rob and it was time to set up a cleaning routine in a new home. Lockdown put me on furlough and then eventually sadly redundancy, so having a cleaning routine has…

How to achieve a grey living room that’s Pinterest worthy

How to achieve a grey living room that’s Pinterest worthy

Grey really seems to be a marmite colour. Some people think it’s had its time as the ‘it’ colour and others still love it. I really love grey and think that it’s a really perfect base colour for a room. We’re currently redecorating our home and we’ve had a few different greys on the walls and I wanted to share what I’ve been learning on our little interior design journey about grey. I’m sharing this as we are probably about half way through redecorating. Due to lockdowns and other things, we are taking it slow and i’m kind of glad…

Redecorating our hallway to a white and grey colour palette

It’s been awhile since I wrote a blog post and I’ve been really mulling over the purpose of this here blog. I’m not a student anymore and I spend my days working in marketing so I haven’t really made much time for my blog. So it’s now going to be a brain dump, diary sort of place to chat DIY etc. I want to get my blog back to the original and interesting blogs I read when i first started a blog. So here it is, a rather chatty talk about my hallway. A riveting read! We have decided to…

Decorating our bedroom with Tesco Photo

Decorating our bedroom with Tesco Photo

Hey there! So we’re finally starting to get some decorating done! I’m so happy! I think starting to decorate your house is such a daunting process. If you’re anything like me, you’ll have about 10 different styles you like, all for different budgets! Since moving in together, we have been making plans to decorate and renovat the house. Most of the rooms in the house are liveable in and will get their makeovers over time, but our bedroom is number one on the list. The bedroom has been Robs for years, and as such has been through every stage of…
