We moved to our house 7 years ago. One of the reasons we bought it was the potential it had and the various possibilities to extend it. Now that my 5 year old is quickly outgrowing the box room the extension plans are not so much a dream but more a necessity. As much as I hate mess and the idea of living in a building site, I also love the idea of planning and designing what our space will be like.

These are some essentials in my wish list

Walk in wardrobe

Who doesn’t love a walk in wardrobe? It’s every girls dream, right? I’d love to have enough space to have a big one but realistically, as I don’t live in a mansion I’m not sure I will. I’d be happy with anything big enough to house my handbags – I have a big collection – and all of my clothes and shoes. I’ve created a Pinterest board for a bit of inspiration.

Apologies for the radio silence. I haven’t posted much the past month or so but the school holidays, summer and my day time job seem to have taken most of my time in August . Normal service has now resumed and I must admit I am looking forward to going back to my routine.

I have some exciting news, once again my blog has been nominated for an Amara Interior Award in the Interior Lifestyle Category. I am so grateful to whoever nominated me and it really means a lot to me. Having a full time job and a young family means I haven’t got as much time as I’d love to to dedicate to the blog.  I spend all my spare time, my evenings and any other moment I have to myself to either write content, take pictures or update the blog’s social media. It’s not easy but I love it! This blog is my little outlet to express my creativity and to talk about all those things I love and I’m passionate about.

I’ve had my Olympus Pen E-PL7 for nearly two years now. You can read my reviews here and here. When I first got it, the plan was to carry on using my Nikon D3000 and use the Olympus Pen for days out or whenever I didn’t want to carry the Nikon with me.  But the Olympus is so light and compact that I’ve very rarely used the Nikon since.

As a family we try to make the most of any nice, sunny weekends and we always head to the seaside. One of our favourite places to visit in the UK is Broadstairs. With fine, beautiful sand, clear water and a nice promenade it’s easy to see why it’s such a popular resort.

We visited Broadstairs last Sunday and even though it wasn’t a really sunny day the kids still wanted to go to the beach. Isn’t it amazing how kids never feel the cold?beach-to-bar

One of the perks of being a blogger is that sometimes you get invited to press days and events. The press days are a great opportunity to get a sneak peek at what the brands have in store for the following season. So on one of the hottest days days of the year I popped over to probably one of the most amazing houses in central London – One Horse Guards, to have a look at what Neptune has to offer for Autumn / Winter.
