My Spring Homeware Wishlist

Going into Spring, I’ve been having a serious de-clutter. eBay has become my best friend but that hasn’t stopped me looking at a few new homeware pieces.

5 TV Shows I’m Watching Right Now

The past couple of weeks, I’ve fallen down the hole of constantly binge-watching TV Shows. My productivity levels have been shocking, I’m not going to lie. Can you actually believe that I don’t have a TV in my room, I suppose in 2018 everyone is watching things on Laptops and Tablets.
