How to make a rented house feel like a home

If you’ve been reading along for a while you might know we moved into our own rented flat in February 2016. If you’ve ever lived in a rented place you’ll know how difficult it can be to really make it feel like your own space. Both Lee and I have previously rented mouldy student digs,  so we were both excited to move into a flat that was in a much better condition. Plus, we’ve been really lucky that our landlord has allowed us to paint the flat to help freshen it up. This really helped up make our rented place…

Veganuary: Things I’ve Learnt Whilst Being Vegan For a Month

Is anybody else ecstatic that January is finally over? Probably. Now I usually enjoy the first couple of weeks of the month as I’m counting down to my birthday (I turned 26 on the 20th btw) but once that is over with I’m wishing the winter away and craving spring sunshine.

My aim to start the year as I meant to go on…

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.

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…

GOODBYE 2017: THE YEAR AHEAD

We’ve now said goodbye to 2017, and what a year it’s been. As a society, we’ve had some pretty terrible things happen throughout the year: Theresa May, Manchester Arena bombings, London Bridge attack, Grenfell tower to name a few. Aside from all the horrible occurrences, we’ve suffered from over the year, on a more personal level 2017 has been a year I’ve enjoyed quite a lot. So similarly to last year, I thought I’d talk through some of the highlights of my year. Slimming World: Back in January 2017, I decided to join Slimming World in order to get myself…
