A creative lifestyle blog.

Friday 11 March 2016


Do you remember about 6 months ago when I started a new series called Life Lately? Yeah, well it's been a while hasn't it! The whole intention of these blog post's where to keep you guys updated on me and my life in between my various craft projects and unhealthy bakes. Anyway I thought that it was about time I got my arse into gear and updated you all on the going on in my world.

Let's start with a biggy. I think the time may have finally come for me to say goodbye to my apartment and move into a proper house. Around this time last year I was dead set on moving but the houses that I liked, within the area that I wanted to live in, did not quite match my budget. With that the idea moving out of my beloved 2 bed apartment into a scruffy as hell terrace house that needs a tonne of money throwing at it to make it work just wasn't floating my boat. However, circumstances have since changed and there is a strong possibility that a spot of house swapping could be on the cards for the not so distant future.

Another thing that I have been doing over the past few weeks is making the effort to take time out to relax. I always seem to struggle around this time of year, I'm not sure if it's just the crappy weather or the bunch of unhappy anniversaries that occur around this time of year effecting me. Either way, it sucks. So with that I have been taking a lot more time for myself and making sure to put myself first instead of running around after others like a headless chicken. This means lots of Lush baths and quiet time getting lost in record or TV series. Talking of TV, I highly recommend checking out The Night Manger or Thirteen if you're on the hunt for some new TV shows to binge watch this weekend. And remember, self love is important.

Other than the above the only other thing that has really stands out to me over the past month or so was watching one of my best friends marry the love of her life. It was the first wedding of a friend that I have ever attended, the rest being family and such, and it was honestly so lovely to see someone you love be in so much love. I definitely feel like its opened my eyes to weddings in a way I had never seen them before, either that or I am officially a proper adult now and all the love has finally cracked my jet black heart.

I feel that now is as good a time as any to wrap this post up. I promise not to leave my life updates so far in between next time and hopefully I shall be sharing my moving home tales with you by then! I am so excited to see what the next few months throw at me. Come at me 2016!


  1. My best friend got married last year and I was bridesmaid. You're right, it's a really surreal feeling watching someone your close to (but who isn't family) step up there and start a new chapter in their life. And seeing her name change on Facebook was a big adjustment too! Wonderful, but a strange feeling! x

    Lorna | Lorna, literally.

    1. I couldn't agree more :) changing her surname in my phone was possibly the surrealist moment!
