World Mental Health Day ☀️ I’ve mentioned this before, and wrote a blog post about a positivity challenge I took part in last year, but didn’t want to let today pass without writing another little caption. This is a subject close to my heart as I’ve suffered with depression and anxiety on/off since I was a teenager, and feel it’s such an important topic to talk about and normalise. I originally started my account and blog as an escape from daily life. Taking pictures of my home, throwing myself into decorating/teaching myself photography, and writing about trivial things like cushions gave me a creative outlet to focus on and became my little ‘bubble’ away from it all. So many people suffer in silence, so if you know someone that might be struggling, reach out, be kind and offer a hand as you don’t know how much it’ll mean to someone. If you’re struggling, reach out, be kind to yourself and don’t be ashamed to admit you need a hand. And don’t be hard on yourself, you’re doing great. .
Unrelated photo of my hallway because although it would be more relevant to post a pic of myself I’ve still not found my make up bag anywhere so can’t quite bring myself to do that to you all 😩🙈 Also I’ll pop the link to the post about the positivity challenge in my bio again in case anyone wants a read as I found it really helpful 👍🏻

After a lovely break I had the urge to paint again! Me and @klmfernandez
walked 40 miles last week in Copenhagen and I did Zumba tonight.... goodbye to the legs 😂. I went dark green Angelica by Craig and Rose. This is my fave little room in my house 🙌🏻
Happy Tuesday everyone 💕 I’m running late this morning despite wanting to leave the house earlier in the mornings. I work in Cambridge and the traffic has been worse than usual recently so I end up spending hours of my day stuck in the car. Does anyone else have a long commute to work? Any good podcast recommendations? 🚙 Have a lovely day!
The weekend is nearly here! 🎉 .
I’m off to the hospital today to see what they can do about an ongoing tooth infection I’ve had since March 🤯 fingers crossed I’ll come out with an answer today, wish me luck! .
We’ve also got a shed renovation starting today, keep an eye on my stories to see what we’re doing! .
Has anyone got any exciting plans for the weekend?
Tuesday night is pamper, relax, GBBO and snack night ✌🏻❤️ #myhappyplace
~~ Insta Reality ~~ Ok so my Insta Reality is... I have no time to take photos and I seem to be at work during the daylight hours. So here's a quick #shelfie
under artificial light 😆
In other news these artificial succulents are currently £3.99 at @aldiuk.
All different shapes and pots.
They're also selling a navy diamond pattern rug just like mine for only £14.99
I'm not on commission... promise! 😂
All ready for Autumn in here! 🍁🍂😍 Happy Monday everyone! There’s a new blog post up today which I’ve been working behind the scenes on and am so excited to finally share! I’ve updated three rooms in my home for the new season with some beautiful bits from @sainsburyshome
’s new AW18 range 😬 There’s some absolute bargains in there, swipe for some close-ups 👍🏻 That cute little table is a personal favourite - doesn’t it look perfect in that corner?! Lots more pics & all the details over on the blog now (link in bio) Look out for the bath mat of dreams and the most autumnal throw ever 👍🏻 #sainsburyshome #mysainsburyshome #ad
Next project! SWIPE 🔜The downstairs bathroom needs some indulgence! I’ve always wanted to use a dark green somewhere so have chosen Angelica by @craigandrosepaints
as my feature wall where I have a lovely gold chain mirror I think I could compliment nicely! Excited to get started on this as I’m eager to get painting again 😬 the second picture is the gorgeous inspiration of @insideherhome
her house is to die for! Watch this space...
It’s raining and miserable here in Plymouth today 🌂 I have been cheered up to find Yellow is a colour of the season and there are lots of pieces to add it into our homes from Sainsbury’s ❤️ I shopped there today! ❤️🌂❤️ more faux plants for me! 🌵
What a super day so far - a morning spring cleaning the living room and shampooing the carpet, then an afternoon of pottering and a trip to the park!
I can put my feet up for a takeaway and Strictly later, guilt free!
I also picked up this ‘new to me’ @orlakiely
plant pot and lantern, which look super on the new table. Think this corner is finally finished! x

Happy Sunday! Thank you to everyone who messaged me yesterday RE valspar paint. The upshot is that we are going to go for it and just see what happens. Anyway that’s enough paint talk to last me a lifetime, it’s time for a Sunday adventure. Hope you all have a lovely one 🌿✨
Sainsburys home smashing it again... I think obsession may be the right word for these candles. Now all I need is the spa treatments to match.
~~ Eclectic Mix ~~ What's my style? I'm not sure to be honest 😂 It's an eclectic mix of ideas I've pinched from other Insta/Pinterest accounts! But that's what instagram is for, right? Sharing and inspiring.
My latest inspiration is the jungle wall hanging posted by @houseofhinckley
Hopefully it will be big enough to cover the five plug sockets the builders obviously thought I'd need on one wall .... 😒
Top tip: cactus plants will pretty much look after them selves which is perfect for me because I always forget to water any plants in the house 😂 These wooden giraffes were a gift and I love them!
