Wassup guys! So in my recent blog post I revealed my alternative Xmas tree for this year's festivities. I just couldn't help myself... I couldn't have another bog-standard Xmas tree could I?! Alternative trees are definitely becoming a 'thing' nowadays , as more people have smaller spaces to work with or just want to be out there with their decor.Read More
Alright peeps! In my eyes, traditional styling is boring, so every year I aim to create a new alternative Christmas tree full of handmade baubles and decorations. Well, handmade is probably a stretch... hand decorated?! The good folks over at Swiftcover asked me to share some xmas #swifthomehacks so what better than to do another alternative christmas tree for 2017?Read More
Hiya! Today I'm coming to you with a post in collaboration with the lovely folks over at Swiftcover, who asked me to share some quick #swifthomehacks for Autumn and Winter living. My first thoughts about what I do in winter? Stay in!

Hey! Like me, you might not be someone who's super into christmas. Of course I love the getting together of family and sharing happiness but I can find the decor side of things a little bit too 'nice'. So this year, when I was invited to join Kirstie Allsop on her Handmade Christmas show on channel 4 I decided to bring you all something of a punk take on the traditional xmas. I've also recreated that tree at home with a bunch more decorations - on the show we had to hand make everything so tinsel and gold baubles were out of the picture).
Hopefully you'll find this tree serves as a little bit of inspiration for your own Alternative Xmas movement!Read More

Hello! It's that strange gap between xmas and NYE and I must say I'm quite enjoying it. Having no work on and being super relaxed has definitely shown me how stressed I am during the week normally so it's been a bit of an eye opener.
