It’s April 🌼 officially Spring – at last! and it’s feeling like it too, sunshine and blue skies make me very happy!
We moved into the house we are in now almost exactly a year ago. We brought it from my hubs brother and dad who had completely transformed it from the shell they bought two years previous to that – we fell in love with it and so did our Indi-Rose.
Although everything they did was fantastic and gave the house a really amazing homely feel 💕there’s still lots to do. Tons of potential – I love planning, changing and updating interiors (almost as much as I love food, but not quite)
We’ve spent the last year making the house our home and mostly the mahussive garden usable. We’ve got lots more to do but we keep doing little bits at a time and are really starting to enjoy our space.
Yesterday hub and I spent a rare day off together. We brought a couple of things for the house, made some plans and cleaned and tidied throughout – sad, but so calming to wake up to the house feeling lovely today.
I like to think our style is calm and eclectic, I love calm colours contrasted with bright splashes and if I can feel like I’m being taken to a far off place, even better. I spotted these canvasses in Next (£22) yesterday and loved the colours. We’ve decorated with Dulux Polished Pebble in our living room and these colours complement the light and bright grey nicely.
I also love scented candles, they relax me – I have been lucky enough to be gifted some lovely Jo Malone beauties in the past, but the price tag means that they’re just not an everyday item for a Social Media Manager like me. So when I had a tip about some bargain luxury candles in Aldi a few weeks back, I’ve been making sure I’ve kept my eye out ever since. I finally found some when I was shopping yesterday and I have to say they smell gorgeous! The lime, basil and mandarin is my favourite. I love chilling with the candles lit in the evening and these look so nice for just £3.99 each.
I love the change in season a new beginning and time for Summer plans…and especially the sunshine! ☀️
Good vibes only xxx ✌️
