Every time I watch Fixer Upper or Flea Market Flip (which is more often than I’d like to admit), I feel a surge of inspiration. I start looking around our rooms and wondering what areas I could renovate. And then, I remember, I’ve actually never renovated a space and that my home improvement skills extend just about as far as painting (details, details).
Still, I’d like to get my hands dirty in the DIY home décor game and aspire to someday be able to transform spaces the way Joanna Gaines does. Since I have to start somewhere, I’ve been making productive use of my Pinterest scrolling time and searching for some relatively simple projects to launch my wannabe hobby. Continue reading
Marble is everywhere lately. It’s on phone cases, laptop cases, notebooks, makeup compacts, and even nails (yes, nails). Gone are the days when you’d just see marble on someone’s floors or countertops; now, it’s a fashion statement. And honestly, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.

But luckily, there’s the Internet. And there’s lots of gifts out there for ’90s babes. Warning: You’re going to be obsessed with these gems and probably want them for yourself. Continue reading
Moving has been a way of life for me over the past few years. Moving five times in three years has not made me an expert but it has taught me a few tricks for settling in quicker. Every move has been different, some with roommates and some without, but each time I have had to pack up all my worldly belongings and move in somewhere totally new to me. Change and I have a love/hate relationship but the following list helped me to start loving my new home. Continue reading
I have a confession to make: I’m not enthusiastic about decorating.
I appreciate a well-decorated house as much as the next person, and I’ll happily spend time flicking through magazines and Instagram admiring people’s stylish rooms. But I just don’t feel the need to spend hours trawling home stores or tackling fiddly projects involving paint and glue guns. Not my idea of a fun leisure activity, thank you very much.

Autumn seems to have snuck up on many of us this year. I know some people feel sad to say goodbye to the summer months but there’s certainly a silver lining.

Here’s seven items that definitely should be on your wish list this autumn: Continue reading
