Hi my names Laura and I’m starting a blog! I have wanted to start a blog for a while as a way to express my creativity alongside my corporate job and to fill the gaps of time where I probably should be in the gym, cleaning my house or doing anything more productive than eating crisps in front of the TV. There are other reasons why I am starting this but I will save those for a rainy day. For now, here is my first post.


Many people have said that our house is more like our second home rather than our first because we have been lucky enough with savings and the help of our families to buy the bulk of our furniture brand new from the shops we wanted to. It is, however, due to both of our expensive taste that there are a lot of rooms unfinished. Like everything this will take time.

Nothing worth having comes easy.

I decided to start on the hallway first as it was the least daunting task and although not finished I am so pleased with how it is coming on.




(From left to right) Black metal basket – Home sense – £5.99 | Reed Diffuser – AZURE by Urban Olfactory – Shop here @ Tk Maxx | Wooden Calendar – Next |



(From left to right) Bonsai Tree – ASDA – £10.00 | Howea Forsteriana – IKEA – £12.50| Our friends bought us this plant as a moving in present (I think it is this one! It looks the same) anyway – It is still alive and it’s amazing. Plant pot also from IKEA. *Disclaimer* Douglas not for sale.


Finally our corner is taken up of rows and rows of Josh’s large collection of Manga. Not his entire collection either. He spends endless time trying to convince me we should go to Japan. His last attempt was showing me pictures of a fox village, breaking my heart with their little red faces. It’s not that I don’t want to go to Japan, it’s just very expensive. One day Josh, one day, I promise.
