I must admit my levels of excitement went through the roof when The White Company got in touch and asked if I ‘d be interested in picking my favourite items from their spring collection. I mean who would say no? The White Company is one of my favourite brands ever and it’s my go to place when buying gifts for friends or for myself.

The White Company name always springs to mind when thinking of affordable luxury, with their beautiful packaging, clean lines and a style that suits not just the minimalists but also the fashionistas out there. And those on the look out for great quality.

Picking favourites from their spring collection wasn’t an easy choice, they have so many gorgeous pieces that narrowing¬† them down to just a few was quite a difficult task.

When we bought our house in 2010 we had an 11 month old baby and after having completely renovated our previous property we didn’t feel like another project. We wanted something nice to move into without having to do any work to it. We paid top price for our house so we couldn’t justify any major changes.

The kitchen had been redone by the previous owners, there is nothing wrong with it but it has never been 100% to my taste. The floor is black, the units are dark wood and there is even a black mosaic strip going round. The whole kitchen looks very dated now,

We moved to our house 7 years ago. One of the reasons we bought it was the potential it had and the various possibilities to extend it. Now that my 5 year old is quickly outgrowing the box room the extension plans are not so much a dream but more a necessity. As much as I hate mess and the idea of living in a building site, I also love the idea of planning and designing what our space will be like.

These are some essentials in my wish list

Walk in wardrobe

Who doesn’t love a walk in wardrobe? It’s every girls dream, right? I’d love to have enough space to have a big one but realistically, as I don’t live in a mansion I’m not sure I will. I’d be happy with anything big enough to house my handbags – I have a big collection – and all of my clothes and shoes. I’ve created a Pinterest board for a bit of inspiration.

Apologies for the radio silence. I haven’t posted much the past month or so but the school holidays, summer and my day time job seem to have taken most of my time in August . Normal service has now resumed and I must admit I am looking forward to going back to my routine.

I have some exciting news, once again my blog has been nominated for an Amara Interior Award in the Interior Lifestyle Category. I am so grateful to whoever nominated me and it really means a lot to me. Having a full time job and a young family means I haven’t got as much time as I’d love to to dedicate to the blog. ¬†I spend all my spare time, my evenings and any other moment I have to myself to either write content, take pictures or update the blog’s social media. It’s not easy but I love it! This blog is my little outlet to express my creativity and to talk about all those things I love and I’m passionate about.

One of the perks of being a blogger is that sometimes you get invited to press days and events. The press days are a great opportunity to get a sneak peek at what the brands have in store for the following season. So on one of the hottest days days of the year I popped over to probably one of the most amazing houses in central London – One Horse Guards, to have a look at what Neptune has to offer for Autumn / Winter.
