D.I.Y DRAWERS WITH GRAHAM AND BROWN

At the end of last year, Graham Brown got in contact asking if I’d be interested in taking part in an upcycling project. Luckily enough I did have a set of drawers in our bedroom that I’d been meaning to upcycle for a while, so this felt like the perfect blog collaboration. The team at Graham Brown were kind enough to send me materials of my choosing to help with the project. All of the materials I needed came just under £50  – proving that you don’t need to spend a lot to take something from pre-loved to re-loved. The…

HOME UPDATES WITH POUNDSTRETCHERS

It has almost been two years now since Lee and myself moved into our little two bedroom flat and we are slowly improving the decor and really putting our stamp on the place. So when Poundstretcher got in contact asking if I’d like to choose some items, I jumped at the chance to buy some homeware. I’ve previously written about our book-nook area of the living room when we first moved into the flat. This is one area of the flat that has been re-arranged a billion times. But I am finally really happy with the way it is now…

Yorkshire Linen Co: How to Refresh Your Bedroom on a Budget*

As you may know, we recently changed our bedroom around a little. Our flat has two bedrooms and we previously had the larger one as our bedroom and the smaller as our office. But having house/cat sat for a neighbour a while ago I saw how she had the smaller room as her bedroom, and it looked super cosy. So we decided to have a move around and create a cosy peaceful little room to sleep. We kept the wardrobes in the larger room,  as I used to do my hair and makeup in the office anyway, so it just…

The Book Nook

As I mentioned in my little ‘Life Update’ post last week, I’ve recently moved into a new flat with my boyfriend. Over the past month we have slowly been trying to get the flat as homely as possible. Slowly adding little touches here and there , I must admit we still have a lot of work to do, however theres a few areas of the flat that are already coming together quite nicely.  There is no doubt about it, our little book nook is my all time favourite part of the flat. This little cove is based at the back…

Homeware Wishlist

Now as I mentioned briefly in this post, I am moving house at the start of next month. I had previously moved out, when I was at university, into a shared house with a group of my friends in my second year. However after graduating in 2014 I moved back in with my parents where I have been ever since.  At the end of august Lee moved into my parents house with me so we could save up for a deposit for our own place. At the start of December, the week of our two year anniversary in fact, we…

Bedroom Snippets.

Since moving back into my parents house i’ve become a little obsessed with making my bedroom look as homely as possible. I think its due to when I was living in a student house I was really limited to what I was allowed to do to make my room nice. But now back home i’m able to hang things on the wall, re-arrange all the furniture and re-decorate, I have been in my element.  For me, my bedroom is like my haven, I can lock myself up in my room away from everything and just relax. I think having a…

Hillary’s Crafting Challenge: How To Make A Lampshade.

Back in March I took part in an amazing event with Hillary’s thanks to the team at Joe Bloggers, which you can read about here. At the event we were told there would be a craft competition for us to enter at a later date where we would be sent some of Hillary’s fabric and have to make something out of it. I must admit at the event I didn’t do ALL that well at the sewing, so I thought this competition would be a good opportunity for my to practice my crafting skills a little, all with the chance…
