I am thrilled to share that I have been nominated for Best Newcomer blog at the Amara interior blog awards 2017. I can’t tell you what a privilege it is to be nominated, and be in a category with bloggers who I admire and do a pretty damn good job at this blogging malark!

July for most people means school holidays, summer BBQ’s and lazy weekends spent in their gardens. For me, July is SALE time! So, what better way to get back into blogging than by telling you about my latest SALE bargain. It’s been about a month since I last post about my fav top pics at Wayfair. Since then I’ve been sunning myself on the Balearic Islands with way too much sun and sangria to write anything half decent. Which leads me onto the topic of this post nicely like some drink obsessed crazy lady.

If you're looking to give your lounge a bit more than a refresh, I wanted to share my top 6 picks from Wayfair. Of course these include three of my favourite materials; Copper, velvet and marble. Each piece is guaranteed to add the wow factor to any lounge area, especially when combined together.
Sometimes all it takes is a little know how, arm grease and a good old DIY store to help pimp your dining table.

Spend less than £70 to re vamp, or get a new table. It didnt take long to decide which option to go with...
Treat yourself! Thats my motto, which I'm sure my husband would happily verify. This month I treated myself to a new navy velvet sofa from John Lewis. I've been obsessing over one for a while, and thought it was time to bite the bullet. One of things which always puts me off buying a new large piece of furniture is the hassle of measuring up to ensure it fits. I'm always reminded of the time I bought a dining table on ebay which didn't fit through the kitchen doorway. It turns out I only measured the front door... whoopsie! Since then, I follow the 4 simple rules to ensure every item fits. Here's my guide to measuring up, and ensuring that every big furniture purchase fits!
This month’s home tour is coming all the way from the sunshine state of Miami Florida.
