I’m a Joanie Gal

I love finding brands and stores that just get you. Know what I mean? When you find somewhere that sells clothes you can see yourself in and it’s super hard not to just add the whole lot into your basket, whether virtual or physical. Joanie Clothing is one of those stores for me. They are inspired by vintage clothing and all their pieces have a retro vibe to them without looking like you’re just dressing…

Find A Very British Hygge in Autumn

Are you even a lifestyle blogger if you haven’t typed the word ‘Hygge’ on your blog or social media in recent years? I think we’re all pretty clued up in one form or another on the Danish concept, just maybe not how as a British person we’re actually supposed to pronounce it! Much can be taken from the idea, whether it’s focusing on experiences over material things, cosying up in these colder months, embracing the…

Simple Scandinavian Home Styling with JYSK UK

When I think of the Scandinavian home styling trend I think of muted tones, linen textures, bare pale wood with a little monochromatic touches and of course a lack of clutter. That’s how I’ve interpreted this trend for my home with the addition of a growing collection of plants too. Our home is a new build so a blank canvas of white walls, grey carpet and wooden doors, in my eyes a perfect fit for…

It comes as no surprise to regular readers when I say I’m an Autumn kind of girl. As a teenager I lived in the Middle East in a country that only had two visible seasons, Summer and Winter. We’d go from freezing cold snow to baking hot sun with very little transitional time between the two. Of course this meant there was a lot less rain, something that here in the UK we have an…

Planning my ten year old daughter’s bedroom makeover

My eldest daughter turns 10 in just a couple of months. 10. T E N. While I try and get over how fast time is whizzing by I’m working on changing up her bedroom and making it feel more like her space. Like most of the rooms in our new build home it’s a black canvas of a white walls with neutral grey carpet. She’s got a few new bits of IKEA furniture but she…

The living room (so far) in our new build home

When we moved into our new home the living room, like most brand new homes, was just a white box with grey carpet. The perfect blank canvas, but also rather daunting! Happily we discovered that all our living room furniture from our previous house all fitted in and worked well. We’ve been in this house for about three months now and have added a few new items to our living room and we’re also planning…

Summer holiday essentials wish list

We’re off to Turkey for a wedding at the end of the month and I’m woefully under prepared! Up until today I was still scrambling round for ‘the’ bikini, this is in part due to the fact that we’ve not had a beach holiday in years. I’ve ordered this one from Boden, and even managed to get a good discount as the top is in the clearance section.   Though it is safe to say…
