A creative lifestyle blog.

Friday 12 August 2016


Oh hey, long time no blog! Before I get into the nitty gritty of my latest home wear additions I just wanted to make a quick apology for the unplanned absence in this corner of the internet over recent weeks. As some of you may be aware, I am now back working for Lush Cosmetics which obviously takes up some time and I am firmly in the limbo that is planning on moving home. 

It's kinda funny, cause I'm actually super content with life right now. More so than I have been in quite some time, yet my blog, which was always my main source of happiness has completely taken a back seat. Now this annoys me greatly as it was never my intention to go so long without posting on here I've just been feeling creatively stunted. Moving is the main reason for this, more so the fact that we plan on completely renovating a 3 bedroom house, which means that in my head I am constantly in planning mode and picturing how I want things, leaving very little room for craft projects and the little things that I love to make so much. 

I guess what I am trying to say here is, please just bear with me. Once we finally move, which should be no later than late autumn by the way, I am going to really get my teeth stuck into the project and share all the joys and perils of renovating a 100 year old home with you. 

Right, now lets get back to basics and share some of my latest home wear additions with you. In recent weeks my original workspace tour has been getting a lot of love from Pinterest so I thought that it was about time I updated you on some of the new bits and pieces that have joined the party. 

The biggest and most important change for me was the wall clock. For ages I have always used the screensaver on my Macbook as a clock but there is just something about having real life ticking clock in a workspace that pleases me greatly. I went for the Karlsson Convex Wall Clock* in black and it's the perfect size and aesthetic for my minimal yet sometimes messy workspace. 

Next up we have a wastepaper bin. Which when you think about it is actually kind of hilarious to mention in home decor blog post but any workspace without one is majorly failing! I learnt this the hard way, after every single DIY project or craft endeavour I would undoubtably be left with a little pile of rubbish and nowhere to put it.  The only reason I didn't have one is I never found anything I liked. That was until I found the Wicker Valley Waste Paper Bucket* anyway and finally had somewhere to throw my scraps of paper... it's the little things. 

The other thing that I have switched up since my workspace tour is the way in which I store some of my stationery supplies. I still have those draws full of papers, paints etc but I wanted something more practical than a pen pot to keep my everyday items displayed on my desk. So when I came across the  beautiful copper Kavali Decorative Box* and realised that it would be perfect to store my pens, pencils and bulldog clips I snapped it up straight away!  

PS. If you would like to know my thoughts on how to create an inspiring and productive workspace you should check out this article on the Wayfair website! 


  1. What a lovely space, I don't think I would be able to keep it that clean and tidy for very long!


    1. Thanks Hannah! I must say, it doesn't ALWAYS look like this. I do try my best to keep on top of the clutter that can accumulate in an workspace/craft room though!
