I was lucky enough to win a fabulous print from Kiss Me at the Disco via Instagram a few weeks ago! I never win anything so I was super chuffed.
When we moved into our house, the master bedroom was, well, alright. It was fine. It lacked character however, as the original fireplace had been removed at some point in the past and it was a bit boring. We decided to put a fireplace back in (just as a feature) and then gave the roomRead More
This summer we took a (very) short break to Robin Hoods Bay. It’s somewhere I’ve been before but didn’t really get a chance to explore. I thought it would be a nice place for us to go for a night away so I booked us into the Victoria Hotel. Mr R told me that whenRead More
House plants and I have a love hate relationship. I love them, but I think they may hate me. They keep dying! Despite this, they’re so good to have in the house so I keep persisting. They have so many health benefits, including enhancing your mood, purifying your air and reducing carbon dioxide levels. Also,Read More
Following on from my posts on our Victorian hallway makeover (see HERE and HERE), we needed a new console table to put all our hallway crap on. You know, like keys, spare change, candles, plants, mirrors – the usual stuff. I also needed something to disguise the radiator a bit. Here’s our custom console table tutorial!
Harry Potter in York? What? We planned to go to York for a day trip for a while but never got round to it. As you may know Holly is a massive Harry Potter fan. She is OBSESSED. I thought she may enjoy a wander down the famous Shambles as it’s apparently the inspiration forRead More

When we visited Harewood House last time, we didn’t get a chance to visit the Seeds of Hope Exhibition. Holly’s tooth had been hurting and she had just wanted to go home, so we did. No point making an unwell child do something they don’t want to do! We were at a loose end oneRead More
I used to work for someone else. I had a “real” job, with set hours, earned a decent wage and had weekends. Life was good! Then I started cake decorating as a hobby. This hobby took off, turned into a business and grew (hello White Rose Cake Design!). I took voluntary redundancy, leaving behind theRead More
Do you remember our grotty hallway? If not, here’s a shot of it in all its horrible glory. Think manky carpet, smoke damaged walls and a general layer of grubbiness built up over goodness knows how many years! This is it before our Victorian hallway makeover… This was the mood board for the hallway. IRead More
