Style Inspiration | The Thrifty Friend


I am one of those people that could spend hours scouring charity shops and never find anything good. My friend Emily however, is one those lucky few who finds something good every time she walks into one and paired with the fact that she's also a pretty good sale shopper she's ended up having one of the cheapest yet nicest wardrobes I've seen. 

Bringing up a Disabled Child


A couple of months ago I asked my mum to write a post for me about bringing up a disabled child - I've written posts in the past about having a disabled sibling but thought it would be good to get a different perspective from my mum. So thank you to my mum for a lovely post and I hope you enjoy reading:

Summer Favourites


So it's not the end of summer yet (fingers crossed), but I've had some firm favourites so far this season that I wanted to share. These are a mixture of fashion and beauty and also a mixture of old rediscoveries and new finds. 

Temporary Living Room Transformation





So I wasn't sure whether to do a transformation post on this room or not because it's actually eventually going to be our spare bedroom, but at the moment it's our living room while we get to work on downstairs. It's actually probably my favourite room we've done so far (sorry bedroom) because I adore the colour and it's got the fireplace and the built in shelves which give it a bit of character. So because of that I thought I'd do a transformation post now because it's not going to look that different as a spare bedroom because the sofa will just become a bed and the TV will disappear.

Summer Accessories


I've actually never spoken about accessories on my blog before, mainly because I'm quite minimalist when it comes to accessorising and quite often I stick to the same few rings and pairs of earrings and that's about it. This summer though I seem to have become a little braver (emphasis on the little) and I have some real staples that I've been loving and I thought it'd be rude not to share!
