Our Annual Wreath Workshop

Thursday 8th December, our annual wreath making event!! I say annual… it only started last year, but it will be annual thing. Last year we had a wreath workshop at a friend’s with Laura from The Pink Peony you can see more here and from then we’ve been hooked! We asked Laura back this year…

Just Married!

It might be hard to believe but I was never the girl that dreamt of her wedding day…. until about 4 years ago! I won’t bore you with the details but Shaun and I have been together for almost 8 years, however the first few years were a little all over the place! I went…

Norfolk Minibreak…

We always try to go away for our birthdays. It used to be: go away for Shaun’s in October and again for mine in November but with the wedding and house being a money sponge the last couple of years we’ve gone away in between! This year we were thinking of going to St Ives…

Based in the heart of Clifton Village their macarons and pastries are freshly made on the premises. They’ve partnered with Extract Coffee; a Bristol based company that specialises in seasonal blends with striking…

Project House #2 {Logburner}

Last week we had the log burner installed. Unfortunately our cottage doesn’t have an inglenook, so we chose to have ours installed stand alone, I guess you’d say a slightly  modern way of having a log burner? I do plan to have a chimney breast/inglenook built so its more in keeping, but I do have…

Daylesford, Kingham

Daylesford has been one of my favourite places to visit for a long time, no matter how many times I go I’m inspired every time! The run up to Christmas is probably one of my favourite times to go. The simple decorations are magical! If you’ve been before you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about…

Is there ever a right time?

This post is slightly different to what I usually write about but its something I think about a lot, so I thought I’d share it with you guys to see if you can shed any light on the subject…. If you follow me on Instagram or are a regular reader you’ll know I got married…

Project Home #1

Our little cottage is nestled amongst green fields, big conker trees, with my parents being our neighbours! We live in a very small village with just a church and a village hall. We’re about 10 minutes drive to the local town of Clevedon which has everything you really need, and about 20 mins (on a…

Christmas Advent

Christmas has always been magical for me, and I really LOVE the festive season! My Grandma and Mum would always make it very special and as a child advent calendars were the exciting build upto Christmas, but the older I get the more often I am on a diet so a bite of chocolate starting…

London Festivities

Last weekend took me to London. Mum and I love going to the Spirit of Christmas at Olympia so thought we’d take the opportunity to have the weekend away together, so we hopped on the train to Paddington Friday evening! We chose to stay at Radisson Blu Edwardian Vanderbilt as it was a good location…

Fri-Yay

How is it Friday again and how are we in the 11th month of 2016? The weeks are just flying by! Autumn has been great so far, hasn’t it! We have been so lucky with the weather. I’m really enjoying this drop in temperature especially the bright, crisp mornings! Ted and I love our morning…

Bonfire Night

As a child I hated bonfire night as I didn’t like the loud fireworks! Luckily I now don’t mind the ‘bangs’, and actually love Bonfire Night! Nothing better than getting wrapped up really warm and going to stand round a fire, watching pretty things in the sky!! I’ve thought of hosting a bonfire night although…
