Alberts Schloss Manchester

With Christmas meaning I have some time to myself, and time to catch up with my blogging to tell you about my adventure after my little weekend jaunt to London and Brighton. I thought what better way to carry on the festivities than with a trip to Manchester with two of my best friends Lynnie…

Baubles & Brighton

Is it just me or is the run up to Christmas a crazily busy period!? I seem to have been so so busy in the last few weeks and have found myself travelling here there and everywhere (which I guess comes with the fact that the two of us are living over 3 different cities!)….

Lady Bettys Afternoon Tea:

This blog has been a long time in coming, but I think its because Bettys holds a spot close to my heart that I haven’t wrote about it till now. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Bettys, then you should be ha ha. Bettys is a Yorkshire based dynasty dating back to 1919,…

Casa Cook – Rhodes Review

WOW! Time really does fly by. It feels like only yesterday I was telling you about my stay at Devonshire Club in London but since then I’ve had a month taken up by being laid low with flu, dog sitting for my parents and preparing for my holiday, and it’s my holiday I want to…

My stay at Devonshire Club

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post and so I thought I’ll tell you about my recent trip to London where I thought I’d take full advantage of the Virgin Trains East Coast 1st class seat sale (it would be rude not to) and save my other half from his regular commute…

Pocket Full Of Personality

 When it comes to clothing I am a big believer that everyone has that one “go to” garment that is their weak spot. Mine, in case your wondering, is jackets! Whether I am scanning the Zara sale, perusing the vintage shops in London or flicking through the next seasons looks on Pinterest,  jackets are the…

Leeds Life: Issho

After a busy couple of weeks with both my holiday in Ibiza and my parents holiday (which meant I actually had to work long days!), I finally managed to head across to Leeds at the weekend and check out Issho, a new Japanese restaurant. Issho is D&D London’s latest opening in Leeds and can be…

Yellow is the new black 

Hey! So here it goes this is my £100 mini makeover challenge! Dave set me the challenge of making his bedroom look at little fresher and brighter; the black wall was probably not the best choice in hindsight – and not one I made! My initial thought was to bring light in to the room…

Budget Bedroom: Bland to Bold

Little has been done with the top floor of the house in the three years since it was built and so with the recent departure of a lodger, it was the perfect time to decorate a bedroom. My other half set the brief of modern, clean, light and gave me a budget of £150.00 –…

Oh So Shore-Dutch

Well what a busy couple of weeks it’s been – what with numerous birthdays (mine being the most important, obviously), social events and feeling a bit under the weather. However, I’ve finally found some time to pick up my laptop and tell you about the amazing interiors and delicious food that we discovered on the…

My bathroom on a budget makeover!

When I bought my apartment in November 2015 its fair to say that the bathroom had seen better days – the walls were full of scratches and marks from years of use by tenants and a badly chipped mirror had found itself well and truly attached to the wall (thanks to what must have been…

Daring to be different with ‘Dayroom’

When it came to decorating my lounge I had a clear image in my mind – one that I often found myself daydreaming over. I knew exactly what the room needed – light. With this came imagery of a light and airy space, one which created a stage for my collection of quirky interiors. However,…
