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.

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.

We can now confidently say that spring is finally here. It has been a very long and cold winter and I am sure you are all as happy as me to see the end of it.

Spring to me means colourful interiors and lighter soft furnishings. Not everybody can afford or want to completely transform the interiors of their home according to the seasons, but it’s amazing what a difference a couple of little changes can make.

I thought I’d share with you some tips to add a bit of colour to your home.

There is only a few days til Mother’s Day, check my post here in case you are still looking for some last minute ideas. Mother’s Day doesn’t need to be all about presents, receiving presents is great and we all love it, but it can also be a great chance to treat your mum.

I have mentioned before my afternoon tea experiences, at the Sanderson and also at Moggerhanger HouseAfternoon tea is something I love so there is no surprise that my perfect Mother’s Day would be spent having tea and cake. Yes, I love receiving and opening gifts but I also love the idea of spending a relaxing day drinking tea or coffee and eating lots of cakes. There is something nice about sitting down at the table with friends and loved ones and having quality time together.
