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. I’ve come across some really cute items over the past couple of weeks so I thought I’d do a wishlist. There are so many places on the high street that have really upped their Homeware game like Asda, Dunelm and Matalan. I seem to want everything every time I go in-store! When many items have a price point of under £10, you can’t feel too guilty about treating yourself. I don’t think I’ll be…

Homesense opens in Leeds City Centre & Haul

A couple of weeks ago, I popped along to Leeds on the train to a get a sneak preview of the brand new Homesense store. I’ve actually been pretty excited about Homsense opening in the city centre as I don’t really live near a store so this one is really accessible for me. The store is located on The Headrow at the top of the shopping area. Also, If you haven’t heard of Homesense they are the sister company of TK:Maxx. It’s basically a huge store dedicated to the Homeware section that you’d normally find in TK:Maxx aka my idea of…

Office Space: Sneak Peek

Yeah, I’m still banging on about redecorating.  After about a year of ideas and working on it very slowly, I’ve got some good news… My office space is nearly finished! I’ve got quite a decent sized bedroom which I’ve turned half of it into my office space. My main problem is that I hoard stuff, I find it hard to get rid of things. I’ve tried my hardest to have a good ol’ clear out and I’ve not done too badly. There will be a few more car boots sales this Summer though! After sorting through my things, the first thing…

House of Fraser SS17 Press Day

It was a wonderful coincidence that I was invited to the House of Fraser SS17 press day when I was actually in London. I get serious cases of FOMO with living up North and missing out on some fab blogger events and press days. The House Of Fraser press day was held at One Marylebone where I’d previously been to an event with Heathrow Airport. Fun Fact: It’s also the venue where Tom Fletcher (from McFly) sung his famous wedding speech. Anyway, it’s a beautiful venue! I was really excited to see what is in store for Spring/Summer 2017 in House…

My Home Office Wishlist

I’m happy to announce after months of going on about it, my office is nearly finished. The walls have been painted, the desk is in and I’m now just looking for some final touches. The three main things are a desk chair, a lovely white ornate mirror and new lighting! Once I’ve found a chair, I can actually sit at my desk and it’ll all seem more real. The walls are also still pretty plain so I’m hoping to buy lot’s of frames and artwork to liven things up a bit more. I’ve recently discovered the brand Nest.co.uk specialise in contemporary…
