I've been looking for a jacket now I am not needing to stay snuggled in my winter coat all the time. I find the inbetween seasons really difficult to dress for, I am always either too hot or too cold - usually the latter which makes for a grouchy Sarah! This Missguided jacket is perfect, it gives me enough warmth to protect me from the elements but isn't too heavy that I start cooking when the sun decides to make an appearance. I've teamed it with this cute pinafore, I am definitely still loving this trend and have been wearing them since Christmas. This one is a bit too short for work mind but fab for the weekend.
I feel like I have only just got back online (I have!) and now I am offline again for another week holidaying with my family in Derbyshire. Keep your fingers crossed that the sun puts it's hat on for me so we can get to do lots of walking and hopefully a little bit of shopping ;)
I wasn't fussed about moving but Gray really wanted to upgrade our flat
to a house so bought me a Kitchenaid for Christmas in my dream colour
that really wouldn't go with our black and red kitchen in the flat - the
Kitchenaid was the catalyst that resulted in our flat going on the
market and the search for the perfect house to begin. Gray is a crafty
I have already been asked a few times to blog our new home and the changes we have made. I love reading this kind of post and am really proud of what we managed to achieve in just over a week. We have bought a three story townhouse and excluding the bathrooms which are still waiting for flooring decisions to be made, we have painted it from top to bottom and it is pretty much done. It's very much been a labour of love, I started buying things ready back when our offer was accepted in February and had pretty much decided how it would look before we moved in.
This is the room that made me fall in love with this house. It is exactly what I was looking for - a large kitchen diner with white units ready for me to throw in loads of pastel colours. I will eventually change the flooring but haven't decided what I want yet - these decisions are hard! The kitchen was already painted lilac and I had planned on repainting it mint, bought the new paint ready then changed my mind and have kept it lilac. It may still end up mint but for the moment I am enjoying it as is.
The kitchen before and after:
We haven't made many changes to the structure of the room apart from replace a hideous light above the table that looked like a UFO. Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of it so cannot share the horror with you all! I have filled the white kitchen with pastel colours, added a big table that can be extended to seat 8 and have turned it into the kitchen of my dreams. It honestly looks better than I thought it ever could, I am so proud of it! I've tried to link to everything below...
Where the magic happens, ha!
The dining area. The chairs are going to be painted pastel colours when I get chance. My lovely Mum made all the curtains for our new home, this fabric is from a Thai seller on eBay.
Too much to link, shout if you want any further details :)
Yep I am sad enough to have a custom print of my Kitchenaid commissioned...
I adore these Jam Jar lights from Next, they really finish the kitchen off
I haven't actually baked in this kitchen yet, I am a bit scared in case the oven isn't as good as the old one in the flat! It's not a fan oven but thankfully is still a double oven. I can't wait to get my first cake under my belt and have the girls round for a little tea party.
Hope you love my kitchen as much as I do, judging by the reaction to a sneak peek on instagram I am thinking it gets a big thumbs up!
Today is internet day! At long last. It felt like my arm had been cut
off and I have really missed twitter and you guys. Only got it for a few
days though as on Saturday I am off on my holidays to Derbyshire and will be
without internet for another week. Woe is me!
I love the detailing on this New Look dress although I am not sure how it
will work with either a bra or the sun. Dodgy tan lines ahoy! Would
look fab with an actual tan though.
How pretty is this Miss Selfridge dress?! I love everything about it apart from the fact it would look rubbish with black tights. Not ready to go bare legged just yet. Again this dress would look amazing with a tan and would look just as good dressed up with heels as it would dressed down with flats.
I've been going gaga over this fruity little number from my favourite brand Sugarhill Boutique. Yet another dress that would look best with a healthy glow (where are you sunshine?!) Just looking at it makes me want to be sipping cocktails at sunset somewhere very exotic. Sigh.
