How to Create the Perfect Wedding Flat Lays

May 9, 2016

Last week my Sister got married. As Bridesmaid, Sister and Best Friend to the Bride, I assured her I would be there for her on the morning of her Wedding, to help with whatever she wanted or needed me to do. I was ready and willing to do babysitting, breakfast fetching, hair pinning and more. But what did she want? Flat lays. Lots of pretty wedding flat lays…

DIY Writing Retreat Writers How to write

Want to write a book? A short story? Maybe you’ve got a dissertation your struggling to finish or perhaps an article, a pitch, a project of some sort you need to get stuck into, but you just have too many distractions? Well I’ve got just the thing… Earlier this year I looked into going on a Writing Retreat to help get the ball rolling, or should I say…

When I found the outfit I wanted to wear to the #CosmoBlogAwards (this gorgeous New Look Black Metallic Strappy Flared Jumpsuit) I knew I wanted to team it with a floral headband. The look I was going for was sort of Winter Garden Gothic, and I wanted a floral crown to really make it work. But when I looked online I couldn’t believe some of the prices –…

Creating my very own Blog Corner

September 10, 2015

Now that I am officially self-employed and will mostly be working from my home (if you haven’t caught up my big news, then I insist you go back a post and read all about it) I knew I would need a decent work space. If you read this blog regularly then you are no stranger to my London rent rants and probably already know that I live in a very…

How to Make Space in a Small Flat

June 25, 2015

London rent is high, super-duper high! And earning a decent wage in London can make little difference to your living situation. When the Beard and I were looking for a flat to rent together last year, our dream of a spacious one bedroom flat with a lovely garden quickly became a nightmare when we realised just how much that dream would cost us. And a garden? Ha! No…

DIY Marbling with Kirstie Allsopp

December 21, 2014

The main reason I was keen to try out the marble effect is because I wanted a nicer, lighter backdrop for photographing small items on, such as make-up or accessories. My entire flat is all dark wood, bar one (quite dirty) white table. But I love the idea of the products looking like they are lying on a colourful and cool marble surface. Plus, I’ve been wondering for…

DIY • Image Transferring (Easy, Fun & Instant)

July 13, 2014

Last week I discovered blender pens and so I’ve spent the past few days on a Blender Bender. A blender pen is just like a felt tip pen, but it lets you transfer an image onto pretty much anything – paper, wood, ceramic and even tin! I found myself purchasing one after I read a post about image transferring on the Free People Blog (which is awesome) and…

DIY • Decorating Mugs

May 21, 2014

Inspired by the talented girls over at A Beautiful Mess I decided to decorate my own mugs for our new flat. It’s such a fun and easy little project. I drink so much tea and coffee so thought it would be lovely to have cups with my own spin on them, and the Fiance had a little input too. This is even a project you could do with…

DIY Hair • Double Plaited Halo

March 18, 2014

So I finally bit the bullet and did some Vlogging, or YouTubing, whatever you want to call it. It was my first vlog, and for all I know it could be my last, but we’ll get to that in my next post when I discuss #MotivationalMarch. For now lets get down to business with this DIY post. A few people requested I do a ‘How To’ video for…
