The Cactus Christmas Tree

How to rock a cactus christmas tree

I am going to start off with an apology* Yes I know it’s still September. Yes I know some of you won’t yet have had your summer holiday/birthday/annual bbq yet (delete as appropriate). BUT, mid-September officially marks the countdown to Christmas in my household. Some of you might have noticed that I’ve struggled to hold back on Instagram Stories when I’ve spotted the glistening of tinsel lining

A Tour of Manchester’s Abandoned London Road Fire Station

London Road Fire Station Manchester

Calling all architecture nerds! Today I’m sharing with you a tour of the absolutely beautiful London Road Fire Station in Manchester. So often, I’m guilty of walking past the most incredible buildings on my commute to work but not really seeing them. It’s really only in the last few months that I’ve been stopping and snapping, when I’ve taken the time to look up at my

Catchment 22

when is it time to sell your first home?

It’s the talk of the town amongst my mummy mates since the beginning of September: school term starts, and for many it’s an exciting milestone for their kids – the first day in school. You’ve probably all seen your Facebook timelines with little girls and boys stood against a wall in their oversized uniform. Too. Cute. Whilst it feels like only yesterday that I gave

Add to Basket – September 2016 with Vertbaudet

It’s been a washout Summer for the most part, but my little girl loves to splash in puddles so it’s not been all bad. We bought her a new pair of wellies from Vertbaudet because these kids always seem to need new shoes… They’re super cute and change colour when they get wet which Luna LOVES (in fact, can I get away with them too

My favourite Instagram hashtags for interiors geeks

Interiors Hashtags for Instagram

It’s become a bit of a running joke that I’m an Instagram addict. Actually, if I posted on there as much as I take pictures throughout the day, my feed would be tenfold. Get me to hashtag rehab you guys. But you know, we all have our vices. So today I’m sharing some of my favourite interiors-related hashtags that you should be looking at, following a

How Pokemon Go helped me fall in love with Manchester all over again


This week marks a month of me playing Pokemon Go. Now, I know this topic is a little different than my usual interiors binging, and yes I’m almost 30 and a self-confessed addict to the game which may make you think differently of me, but hear me out for a minute. Pokemon Go is one of the greatest ways to add positivity to your life.

Going for Gold – Inside Team GB’s Rio Home with DFS

Team GB Rio House Interiors

This is a paid advertorial for DFS I don’t know if I’ve ever told my blog readers this before… but I was kind of an athlete when I was younger. And when I say kind of, I’m actually being quite modest. I excelled at most sports and some of my oldest school friends to this day still sometimes refer to me as “the fastest girl

Summer Favourites Homeware Haul

how to find quirky high street interiors

I don’t buy much for the house really in the grand scheme of things. I want to. Trust me. That’s why I started my Add To Basket feature on this blog, because I window shop A LOT. So when I do go out and buy homeware, it’s because I just can’t NOT have it. I’ve done a few haul posts before and got some requests

30 Minute Makeover: Lilac Garden Planters


This summer was supposed to be “the” summer for our garden. We had big plans to resurface our uneven lawn and build a kiddy corner for Luna, who absolutely loves to be outdoors. Sadly, it’s been a bit of a washout. It hasn’t kept us from getting out and about, but it’s certainly hindered our garden plans a little. What we have achieved though has

3 Alternative Ways to Display A Mini Glass Greenhouse

How to style a mini glass greenhouse

Where would you say is your favourite place for displaying home décor? I bet a lot of you make the most of a fireplace, or perhaps a quirky alcove. Or a nook and cranny where your walls hide the hidden house structure. Well, we don’t have any of these sadly! No fireplaces. No alcoves. Not even any side tables – they seem like an accident
