In which I go to a festival-themed party and drink perhaps a little too much free fizz, and have a MASSIVE try on session!
In which I actually take you out of the flat on a couple of sun-shiny nights out – one in Brum for awesome pizza at Otto in the Jewellery quarter, and birthday mezze for a friend in Leamington. Oh and obviously there’s more DIY.
In which I ramble at the camera a lot after going out on a school night, and we continue with our hallway makeover!
In which I have a crafty day out at Kirstie Allsopp’s Handmade Fair at Ragley, and crack on with some more DIY in the hallway. [Read more…]
After a tricky start to the year a super chilled out week in Wales with lovely friends was just what we needed! We headed to Powys, and stayed in the most gorgeous little cottage, complete with hot tub! It was a week of meandering walks, amusement arcades, boardgames, booze and excellent food. Oh, and we managed to fit a little brewery tour in too!
This week we head to Barcelona for the weekend to celebrate my 33rd birthday!

As you may have seen if you watched my last vlog, we have FINALLY started decorating our new flat. Well, I say ‘new’, we actually moved in nearly a year ago. (I can’t quite believe it, it seems a year goes very quickly when you’re buying your first place together, getting married, and going on honeymoon. And no, I don’t recommend planning/doing all those things at once, but hey, at least we know that our marriage can survive stressful times right from the outset?)
At the moment, the whole flat is pretty much a big white box, that we’ve moved whatever furniture we had in our old flat into. As you can imagine, big white box is not exactly my ideal (I neeeeeed colour!), and the vast majority of our furniture was scraped together from ebay, donations from our family, and charity shops. There are a few gems in there, but a lot of it is looking very tired. Our new home deserves some new furniture, bought with it in mind, and in any case, it’s about double the size of the old one, so parts of it are looking a little empty.
One of the more ‘bare’ areas is the area that we’re starting with – the hallway and landing. Our reasons for starting here are actually pretty simple – we are absolutely dying for more storage space. I still have piles of boxes from where we moved, and under our stairs is pretty much just one large pile of stuff (ok, it’s mostly one large stack of beer and wine bottles). We desperately need some more space to display our precious belongings (hide embarrassingly large stocks of alcohol), and the hallway seems the perfect place to start.
Time for another weekly vlog! This week we finally start decorating our new flat (well, I say new, we’ll have been moved in a year next month! Argh, where did that time go?!) Also – lots of beer, and lots and lots of delicious food!
