A few weeks back I shared the plans for our bedroom makeover. I'm happy to finally share the reveal pics! Sorry it took a while - we were waiting on one piece of artwork that was coming from the states and just took forever to arrive. Anyway BORING... let's get into it!Read More
Our bedroom is next up on the home improvement list. When we moved in it got a little bit of a makeover ( a lick of paint and new carpet) but essentially it was still full of odd bits of furniture, including two HUGE Ikea wardrobes that didn't really fit into the space correctly.Read More
I don't know what it is about getting older but you get so much more picky about things... your taste levels go up and you become less tolerant of crap quality. When I was younger I didn't really appreciate good quality bed linen. I'd find the cheapest thing on offer, and as long as it looked alright and was in the right colour scheme I didn't give a monkeys about the feel or quality. Well, all that has changed! I hear things about types of cotton types and thread count... so what is Egyptian cotton? Here are some reasons that I think you should be thinking about investing in good quality bed linen, along with some helpful educational facts about cotton that I basically learnt from the university of google.Read More
So I have a confession to make.. somehow in all of the goings on I completely forgot to share the reveal of this finished room! That's right, even though it's June this project was actually finished months ago. EEEEK! Anyway, better late than never right?!
Ready to see the reveal pics?Read More
I realised recently when I was changing the sheets on our bed that the labels on our pillows and duvet said St. Michael. ST-FLIPPIN'-MICHAEL.
At the very least my duvet and pillows were 16 years old!Read More

I'm so happy right now because I just got a brand new mattress. Things with my ex-mattress had gotten really bad. You will never understand the joy of a new mattress arriving on your doorstep until you have been sleeping on one with springs that literally prod you in various points of your back throughout the night and have you waking up aching. You know what it's like with those kind of practical products though, it's always going to the back of the queue behind oh, I don't know, new cushions and a taxidermy penguin ornament or something. It's also something that once you've decided you want rid of then you want it sorted and a new one arriving ASAP. It's like once that switch goes on, everything about your current mattress becomes unbearable.
So when Mattress Next Day got in touch to see if I wanted to receive a new mattress from their range guess what my answer was?!Read More
