Jewellery Organisation

With the wet and windy weather we’ve been having lately, I’ve been doing more indoor activities. Last week I tackled a few kitchen cupboards and this weekend I sat down for some, much needed, jewellery organisation. As I’ve accumulated a lot of jewellery over the years! I had an obsession with rings and bracelets as a teenager and hung on to many of them. Even after they no longer fit me or my lifestyle… Like this child’s size snake ring. 🐍 It doesn’t even fit my thumb! Whether this was due to sentimental value or because I didn’t want to Read More…

Small Bedroom Decor | Wishlist

Six months ago I moved back into my parents house (more detailed update on that to follow!) and I’m currently restyling my childhood bedroom having only brought a bed, wardrobe and small bookcase with me from my old flat. When I’m looking for new furniture I’ll either head to Ikea or my local Sue Ryder charity shop. For those of you that aren’t familiar with Sue Ryder they’re a national health and social care charity, who provide compassionate hospice and neurological care across the UK. Which I’m happy to support. The furniture in my old flat (and my previous rentals) Read More…

Halloween decorations for every budget

Halloween is on its way! 🎃💛 Which, if you didn’t know already, is my favourite holiday. I love when the shops start putting their Halloween ranges out! Even more so if they do it before putting out their Christmas ranges. 😉 Haha. We always decorate the house for Halloween, ever since my sister and I were children. We had both indoor and outdoor decorations, a carved pumpkin (of course) and I’ve kept up the tradition since moving out 5 years ago. Here are a few of the Halloween items I’ve found that I’m loving this year. I’ve tried to include Read More…

Moving back in with your parents as an adult. 

Moving back in with your parents as an adult can seem like a huge step backwards, you may feel like you’re losing your independence and you may experience ridicule or teasing from friends or other family members. Luckily the latter hasn’t happened for me but I think I would miss living in my own place. In reality, moving back home maybe the last thing you thought you’d do, but you’re doing it because you’re working towards a goal and have a family willing to offer you some support.  For us, it’s the right decision and will help us achieve our Read More…

Deciding which Christmas movie to watch first

In our house we can never decide which Christmas movie to watch and often discussions get quite heated! It’s silly really. This year we decided to let fate decide and put the name of every Christmas movie we enjoy on a piece of card, folded it up and placed it in a little stocking that will live by our tv for the festive season. The idea is that whenever we want to watch a Christmas movie this season, we will randomly draw one from the stocking. So far it’s working out very well and we like the surprise. So far Read More…

Monthly budget and finance recording

We reviewed our finances recently and set ourselves a monthly budget; my aim is to be debt free (student loan, credit cards) in 12 – 19 months and we’ve talked about starting to save for a house deposit afterwards. I’ve previously spoken about some of the things I do to help budget (see my food shopping on a budget, clothes shopping on a budget and budgeting posts), which I still use, but after recording our finances we found we were spending a lot of our budget on food shopping or meals out and thought about ways to cut back. We Read More…
