I have a very good excuse.

WE HAVE BOUGHT A HOUSE!

We have been living in our first home together for three weeks now and I am finally settled in.

I don’t think I realised how much I actually missed blogging until I sat down to type and write this post. It’s sad that I have missed out on a lot in the past few months but..

I AM BACK and ready to continue my blogging journey.

I wanted to share some of the first photos of our new home with you guys as I have been very much inspired by the blogging community, social media and Pinterest for ideas.

Our garden overlooks the beautiful fields where I grew up. I couldn’t ask for a better view to wake up to!

Were feeling very festive at the moment in our living room. Our tree is a 7ft spruce from Tesco and our Garland is from Buyology. It is so cosy in here, especially when the fire is lit.

Our bedroom needed a neutral and calm theme so we opted for cream and grey with pops of colour.

The kitchen is the heart of the home and I love it. We chose to add hints of copper in our accessories with my favourite being the clock from Dunelm. It matches perfectly with our coffee and sugar pots from Next.

Our dining room had a feature wall with the colour Meteor dust, a grey blue shade. Our side board is from Tesco and our table and chairs are from Ikea

Isn’t this the most adorable garland? My sister bought it for us along with a few other delights…

Our first decoration given to us, again from my sister for our new home.

Our bathroom is simple but classic, we went for a white and beige theme in here, very neutral.

So as you can imagine, alongside working full time etc, it has been pretty hectic these past months but its good to be back!

Christmas sale haul!

Uncategorized

New year means Christmas sales!!!

I love the Christmas sales… So many amazing bargains!!
Today I went shopping for the first time in ages and I was mesmerised by all of the gorgeous sale and bargain items!

I first went to Primark….. I should say that I am a little bit in love with Primark because their stuff is so cheap with such a wide variety!

And of course there were sale items to be bought so I ran (not literally) straight in and grabbed a shopping basket!

I managed to pick up a gorgeous mustard/ green colour playsuit reduced from £14 to £5…… WINNER!

There were also a lovely pair of dark wash denim jeans with rips in the knees that I just had to buy and they were only £13.

From the home section I picked up a super soft and snuggle brown throw for my bed which was reduced from £7 to £2.50!
I cannot contain my excitement!

I then dragged myself away to the next shop which was paperchase and of course to another sale! I bought a floral letter organiser for £2.50, some new makeup brush and lipstick pots for £2.45 each and the most amazing hand stitched journal for £10 so I can write up all my beauty hints, tips and tricks.
