Hiya! Seems like a while since I did any home renovation updates. Things have been really busy what with launching the No Bull Blog School and the new Vlog etc, so a lot of the decoration side of things was on hold a bit. Pleased to say we're back on it! First up, we've recently had a brand new laminate floor laid in our bathroom and kitchen, and I think you'll agree the transformation it's made is pretty incredible!Read More
Hey! At the moment I split my time working between my teeny-tiny home office (or cupboard to a normal person), and my Croydon based workspace, Tomorrow Hub. I'll be showing you both, but first up I wanted to give you a little tour of my tiny home office layout and what I have within arms reach to help me get my work done.Read More
I recently came across the new Hive 'coming home' campaign and really loved it! The campaign is all about capturing that special coming home moment.

In this blog we've shared our top 5 tips to creating that perfect coming home moment, oh and I musn't forget to mention that if you read to the end there's a really cool competition where you can win the ultimate coming home surprise for a loved one worth £1500 smackaroos! WOW!Read More

But I have seen some pretty awesome pieces of home technology that are genuinely useful whilst I've been out and about shooting in some amazing location houses. Things that genuinely had me thinking... I need to get that! So here are my top 5 genuinely useful pieces of home technology.Read More
Once, someone said to me something I will never forget. I'd arranged my hairdresser to come to my flat for the first time to cut my hair. As she arrived she said 'I knew this was your flat, I could tell from the outside. It is so you.' For some reason that statement struck a chord with me more than any other compliments I've ever had about my home.Read More
Paris oh beloved paris, what a city! The perfect blend of glamour and period detailing. With such an abundant romantic feel, whether its the beautiful sparkled lighted streets at night, loved up getaways, sneaky back street boutiques or the fab flea markets (wonder which is my favourite?!), the whole place is just steeped in a magic all of its own. So, how can we bring a little of Paris to our own homes?Read More
Feel like you could do with a little suttin-suttin to spruce up your home this summer? We did! It felt like we had a big list of items that were just nagging us because they weren't quite perfect yet. We all know the feeling right?! We made a few purchases, from charity shop bargains to pricey sofas. Instead of me listing out what we bought, I thought it would be way more fun for you to watch a little video in true Sarah Akwisombe style!Read More
