A few great things happened at Ask For Janice. Firstly, I tried and LOVED my first Gin & Tonic. Secondly, I had a well overdue meat feast, after being what I like to call 'predominantly pescaterian' since January. Thirdly, I had the best bloody Mary I've ever tasted. Yep. Even better than my own! Here's my Dinner & Decor: Ask For Janice review.Read More

I've been meaning to catch up with an old friend of mine for a while, and due to both having crazy schedules we had rainchecked our meeting a few times. But last weekend the sun was shining and it was ON! Nicole had planned a full day of fun activities all based around my love for interiors.

I grabbed my friend Holly, another person just as into interiors as I am and braved the sweaty tube to go along.
Here are all of the pics...Read More

So, if like us, you just don't have the space but still want the vintage bar cart effect, why not try this?Read More
I had felt a big change for me was bubbling under the surface for a while. To put it in context, in February, the project I was working on and loved working on, lost funding. Around the same time I had made a conscious decision to really try and focus on my career in interior design. But an entry level job at a design house (should I even be able to get one) would be half my salary. We wouldn't cope.Read More
The Bossa Nova music is back!

I do the research and give you the lowdown on if designer paints are really worth your hard earned cash.Read More
