GETTING SUMMER READY WITH LYST

I recently spoke about wanting to update my Summer wardrobe and since then I have been browsing, bookmarking and lusting after a lot of gorgeous Summer clothes. I’m pretty impressed with the choice available this year. My firm favourites include the lace up sandals which wrap around your leg, I think they look great with skirts or dresses.

My obsession with finding a new Summer wardrobe only got worse when I was introduced to… View Post

Today marks the start of Summer, and although the weather might not be playing ball we’re sure to get a few nice days – eventually.

My grandad was diagnosed with dementia and although adaptations were made so he could stay in his own home for as long as possible,… View Post

I’m not sure about you but I’m not a lover of DIY and will often rope my dad into helping with any difficult jobs rather than try to do them myself. It would appear I’m not alone in this as LED HUT recently published an infographic ‘Don’t Do It Yourself‘ showing which home improvement jobs we loathe. I recently moved into my own house and I still have a lot of work to do to get it to how I want it. This includes doing lots of little DIY jobs such putting up shelves, hanging photo frames, changing light fittings, and… View Post
