A Summer Homeware Haul*




As you can imagine, buying and furnishing a home can be quite expensive; let alone adding those little finishing touches to the place! Ocean Loans kindly gifted me £50 to spruce up our home for the Summer months, so for this post i'll be showing you guys what I picked up.

It's amazing what adding a few accessories here and there can do to the place, its really starting to feel like home. I decided to spend the money on sprucing up the living room and dining room areas, as they were both looking a little bare. Both rooms aren't quite finished yet, but they're definitely on their way to getting there now they have a couple of extra accessories in them. My first purchase was the beautiful teal coloured Chenille cushions from Matalan (priced at £4.20 each, usually £6). I paired the teal cushions with our grey sofas to add a pop of colour, and complement the feature wall which I think works really well. The fireplace is 100% my favourite part of the house, and to be honest I had been dying to add a lantern to it since the moment we came to view the house. All those hours sitting on pinterest have definitely thinking i'm an interior designer! I already had the lantern of choice picked out and ready to go, I picked it up in Matalan for about £10, and the simple white candle within it from Asda for £3. 

My dining room at the moment is very white. Don't get me wrong I do love the whole clean white look, but I felt as though it needed a little bit of colour in the form of the artificial Fekja plant (£5), which I paired of course with a white Kardemumma plant pot (£2.50) from IKEA. My final purchase was the four pack of reversible leather coasters and place mats from Next at Home for £15, the black and grey tie in absolutely perfectly with my kitchen. 

I hope you guys enjoyed the haul, I hope to be back with a couple more in the near future!

I moved house!


Guys it finally happened. 
We moved into our first house on Wednesday 1st June 2016, so we are officially home owners!

It's been both the most wonderful and the most stressful experience of my life, but I am so glad we have finally done it. The build up to the actual move was quite the experience in itself. We were emailing back and forth to the solicitor trying to get a rush on things, as we both had a week off at the same time (a somewhat unusual occurrence for us!) so obviously wanted to move as soon as we could. The moving day arrived and we were both up at the crack of dawn eager to get going, but had to wait for the phone call from the estate agents to give us the go-ahead for picking up the keys. We got the call at 1.30pm, and had finished moved all of our belongings in by 5pm. Utter chaos as you can imagine!

Two weeks have since passed and I'm sat here writing this post in an almost fully painted, and furnished house. We couldn't have done any of it without the help of both of our families. So of course Andy and I will be eternally grateful for everything they have done for us. Our home looks absolutely incredible already; I can't wait to see how it will look once its complete. 

That's it for now guys, I will get back to posting regularly soon I hope!

Summer Footwear Wishlist*


I friggin' love shoes. I mean, who doesn't right?! I have to admit, I definitely have a few too many pairs sitting in my wardrobe that never see the light of day, but that doesn't stop me from wanting more! I guess i'm a bit of a shopaholic. So for today's post i'm showing you guys the shoes i'm lusting after from Brantano this Summer. 


Thanks for reading!
