…is about love and weddings, home design, fashion, DIY and crafting and a little bit of culture. At the heart of the blog is a love of and pride in Yorkshire – this region that is naturally charming and beautiful, often unique and sometimes quirky. I’m influenced by styles from all over the world but you’ll find a particular focus on my home region. We have a wealth of incredible creative talent I love to showcase.
I love fashion, but not spending a lot on it. Designers make my lust list, but my budget doesn’t usually extend beyond the high street. Recently I’ve been learning a lot more about customising and some basic jewellery-making.
I’ve also got into crafting. Despite being worried about ageing 50 years overnight, I’ve found it impossible to resist since spending more time in the blogging world. And now I don’t care: crafting is cool! Any successful projects, I’ll share here. Any unsuccessful ones I shall pretend never happened.
I have something of a property obsession, visiting property websites weekly even when I have absolutely no intention of moving. I can be a bit of a liability when behind the wheel because I’m preoccupied nosing into people’s living rooms. I dream of this house I’ll probably never have with super high ceilings, huge windows, a library you need a ladder to access, acres of land and a sea view.
I love to travel. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to some of the world’s most exquisite destinations, but recently my husband and I have decided to get a bit sensible. I dislike the word ‘staycation’, but looking to spend less has forced us to take a closer look at the country we were blessed to be born in. We’ve taken up camping, favouring isolated cliff-top sites – as long as they have hook ups to allow you to bring electricity to your tent. For the GHDs, you see.
I love mojitos, oh and I have a Pinterest addiction.
Alex has been one of my very best friends since we were 16. We’ve been through so many adventures together so I’m delighted that she’s chosen to join me on my blogging journey by being a regular contributor, usually on fashion and style.
I am an oniomanic. In plain speaking terms I have a shopping addiction and probably writing for this blog isn’t helping.
My bank balance rarely rises out of the red so finding the best looks from the high street is a must.
Being inspired by other people’s style and sharing my favourite buys gives me pleasure.
Bags are my weak point – I could have bought a small island for the amount I’ve spent in Mulberry. But they are an investment after all.
Aside from fashion, I’m an exercise junkie, a bit of wine-o, a fair-to-medium gardener and a first class cleaner. I love making my home homely and maybe one day I’ll feature in Homes and Gardens.
I have a husband who I unsuccessfully try to control and two adorable Persian cats who I control even less.
Hopefully I won’t be one of those women found dead under a pile of bags and cats.
