My Wedding Guest Outfit


We all have to walk that fine line eventually when it comes to deciding what to wear to a wedding. It's like, you want to look stunning, somewhat beautiful, but still appropriate for the wedding. I mean, you want to be remembered for the right reasons, and that's not for upstaging the bride. 

For men, this is fairly easy to remember - he should wear something to complement the groom's without matching exactly. So that the one that stands out, is the one celebrating his nuptials. Coordination seems to be key and so a nice suit that is similar in colour to the grooms, a fancy shirt and then finish with a matching tie and pocket square.

I Resent My Post-Birth Body


Many women, like myself, are left with scars, stretch marks, and loose skin after giving birth and this is a reality that women themselves often try to hide, and that the media never wants to show.

After having three children I can say that I have very low self-esteem and regularly wear clothing that hides my lumps and bumps. Even nearly 4 year after birthing my last child, I still hide those scars that brought him into this world. 

We're told that we should be proud of our bodies, that we should wear our tiger stripes with pride and that we should be proud of how our bodies have grown children, but it's not has to start to resent how much your body has changed whilst also being proud of what it has achieved.

Creating A Dressing Table And Home Office


As a parent to 3 children, and someone who works from home, space can be a bit limited in our house. We have to make good use of the space we have to make sure everything we need is catered for. When I decided I needed and office for my work, it took a lot of manoeuvring around to actually find a corner of space - especially when I already had a dressing table too in the same room and couldn't justify taking up more space.

So it got me to thinking about creating one desk for both. Somewhere I can work when I need to and use as a dressing table on a morning when I'm getting ready or drying my hair. When I showed off my home office last year, I realised that I needed to change it up a bit, to cater for everything I would use the space for, and so here is my updated home office which doubles up as a dressing table...

Creating a Grey and White Modern Bathroom


Grey bathrooms are having a renaissance right now - this stunning tone is the colour trend of the decade and can make a bathroom look super modern if used correctly. 

What I personally love about grey, is that it can be combined with different colours to really make the room pop, or used on its own to look modern and stylish. If paired with the right hues it can really make a designer scheme, give a calming effect, and add extra punch to your design.

Creating A Rose Gold Master Bedroom


We've slowly been getting round to updating the decor in our house lately. I started by writing about how we created a silver and grey livingroom, and now we've gone upstairs to the next lot of rooms that need sorting out. 

The master bedroom in our house was in dire need of updating. It has been a really dark purple since we moved in and that made the room look so dull and dreary. I've always dreamt of having a bedroom that is relaxing but luxurious, and has the design that looks bold but serine at the same time.
