IS 2016 THE YEAR YOU START YOUR BLOG?

My 2 year blogging anniversary is rapidly approaching and there is no way that I would have guessed I'd be where I am, doing what I'm doing now when I first started. It was just a way for me to be creative and indulge my passion. But I've seen that it's a pretty amazing way to kick start a new life for yourself (yep, this post might be fromage heavy, but it's true)!

Have you ever sat and thought about starting a blog? 

Do you hear yourself talking about it to your friends and then never actually end up getting started? Maybe you feel like there's a lot to learn or you'd run out of ideas... All things I thought at the beginning too. Which is why I've started hosting free webinars (live online classes to any tech newbies) that share what I've learned about starting a blog, and how to do it RIGHT the first time.

TRAVEL DIARY: SANTA MARGHERITA LIGURE

It is with great honour that my husband and I reached our tenth anniversary on the 29th April 2015! It's been an amazing ten years and I'm even more excited to see what the next ten hold. To celebrate, we jetted off to Santa Margherita Ligure, a resort town on the Italian Riviera a short distance from the famous Portofino. There was some fabulous architecture, some warm weather and a hell of a lot of carbs... Here's what we got up to!

DINNER & DECOR: BREW PUTNEY

Ok so this isn't technically Dinner & Decor, it's more like Brunch and Decor, but whatever! Me hubby and our little girly are always looking for great brunch in South London, so when we were invited down to Brew in Putney to try out their mouthwatering brunch and juices whilst checking out the decor of course we accepted! Obviously there's loads more details to come but I just need to say - their treacle cured bacon is just...  delish. Worth every bloody penny. Ok, ONWARDS!

DINNER & DECOR: THE REFINERY, REGENTS PLACE

A few weeks back I realised that I hadn't done one of my Dinner & Decor reviews in a while! Keen to get out and experience some more amazing food with stunning interiors I put word out and was lucky enough to be invited down the the brand new Refinery at Regents Place right by Warren Street station. I took along my mate Milly who is an absolute foodie. We also both turned up with matching makeup. We're so cool, I know. Anyway, to summarise there was a virgin lobster experience, and a lot of fur... intrigued?!

EXCITING NEWS! SHOP MY SIGNATURE STYLE ON JOSS AND MAIN

I'm so rubbish at keeping things quiet but I did a good job on this one! I've always dreamed about having my own line of furniture and accessories and this is my first step in making that dream come true.

PURPLE AND GREY BEDROOM MAKEOVER FOR MY FIRST INTERIOR DESIGN CLIENT

A year or so ago, I had a vision of starting an interiors blog and one day being an interior designer. Some people I knew sniffed at this idea... 'another project in a series of creative things she's tried her hand at' they thought (or quite literally said to my face). In just over a year I've won two awards for my blog, launched my first online digital product and now have just completed my first private interior design job. And here it is in all its glory. My first ever project! ARRRGHHH!
