Cheat your way to ombré

Cheat your way to ombré

Not long ago I went back closer to my natural dark hair colour from white blonde. I’m terrible when it comes to dying my hair, and I mean terrible. There’s been points where I’ve changed the colour every week and I don’t think anything of bleaching my hair three consecutive times in one day, but … Continue reading

Mad as a hatter

So I’ve started doing a little spruce up in my bedroom, nothing exciting just a few handmade bits to brighten it up. I’m going to put some photos up when it’s all finished but I’m a little bit excited about how creative I got with some teacups and saucers this afternoon and can’t wait to … Continue reading

Hiding out in public places

Hiding out in public places

There are very few places that are as suited to slumping down with a coffee and a book than your own sofa. The welcoming envelope that your own cushions provide, the quiet of solitude, the perfectly brewed cup of warmth and the incomparable sense that you’ve somehow stepped into a bubble that’s shut you off … Continue reading

Finders keepers

Since I began hunting down bargain clothes I haven’t been able to help coming across bargain household goods and furniture. I don’t really have that much room to add any more big items to my house but sometimes you come across things that you just can’t say no to which is definitely what happened today; … Continue reading
