Can you tell us about how you got into interior design?
It started out as a need rather than a vocation; I could only afford to live in places that needed doing up and redecorating. I didn’t have much money so I had to do it myself. So in my first flat I bought an end of line carpet off-cut and underlay and laid it myself. I painted the whole place, re-tiled the bathroom (I cut myself to shreds!), made pelmets for above the windows, and got a friend to help me lay new patio.

Yesterday we went to the new Harry Potter exhibition at Hannahs, Seale Hayne in Newton Abbot, Devon. A friend of ours had been a few weeks before and had said it was good so we thought we’d check it out. That and we have a massive Harry Potter fan in our household. One day we shall take him to the Warner Brothers Studio Tour in Watford. It’s definitely on our ‘must visit’ list. Continue reading “Harry Potter Exhibition at Hannahs”

Recently I was made aware of a company called Teagime who are the UK’s only fully personalised Teatox programme that ensures every cup of tea is specifically selected for your needs. Continue reading “Teagime – A Custom Blended Teatox & Giveaway”
Far too often, we think of the term “DIY” only with regard to repairs and renovations. The term can certainly apply to things like that, but for a lot of people there’s also a certain thrill or charm to applying the DIY mentality to decor! During the spring and summer when a lot of us focus on revamping home and yard designs, the idea of doing a hands-on project to improve decor can be very appealing. If you get really into it, you might even be able to line up a full summer’s worth of crafting and building projects. Continue reading “3 Tools To Take Your DIY Decor To New Heights”
This Friday is National Upcycling Day, part of National Recycling Week which aims to encourage people to rethink what they throw away. The idea is to encourage people to get creative by taking a look at furniture they already own and thinking about how they can give it a new lease of life.

In January I went to Budapest along with my Mother and Sister. We got a fantastic deal on Groupon which covered our flights and hotel all for less than £150. Good old Groupon!
I had never been to Budapest before so I was really keen to see as much of the city as I could in 2 days. Before we went I made a list of all of the things I wanted to see and do and then worked out the best way to fit it all in. Yes I’m that sad! Continue reading “48 Hours in Budapest”
