The last six months have been increasingly crazy and I thought it was about time I did a bit of a ‘life update’ post… Disclaimer: If you don’t care what I have been up to in my personal life, that’s ok! Just click onto the next post!
Firstly, those who follow me on instagram will have noticed I have been spending a lot of time painting. Not masterpieces, just walls and woodwork! I actually had no idea how long the process of painting a house would take, it’s just a few walls isn’t it?! At first we wanted every room to be white, classy and minimalist, then we thought about it and realised we wanted candy-coloured everything! (see here) We were going to hire a team of decorators to do the hard work for us, but it was just going to cost too much (about £9,500 just to paint the inside walls, can you believe?!) so we have been doing it ourselves. Amazingly, it’s actually been a lot of fun, we have been listening to podcasts as we paint and stopping for plenty of ice cream breaks. It’s not been so bad! A lot of the rooms are starting to come together and we have even started accessorising some parts (see this post) and the fireplace you can see popping up in photos, that’s actually in our bedroom!
Still Not ‘Set A Date’!
Can you believe we have been engaged for over a year and a half now and still not set a date for our wedding?! I have had a few people nervously asking if we are still engaged and I promise, we are! However, we have been so busy with our house, the time has just flown by! Whilst I don’t want to be one of those couples who have been engaged for 10 years, I also don’t want to take on too many major projects at one time an for now, the house is coming first! I don’t think either of us had any idea how much work renovating a house would be, it’s just like they say, it takes double the time and double the money you expect! (read more about it here)
Whilst my blog has kept me busy for years now, over the past few weeks it’s become increasingly crazy! I’m not quite sure what has caused the sudden shift, but it just seems to have gone a little crazy, I’m getting way more visitors than ever, more social media followers, my inbox has never been ridiculous and I have so many exciting projects in the pipeline, I can’t even get my head around it! It’s pretty cool! It’s so amazing that people read, so thank you for stopping by and hopefully you all still enjoy it! There is some sponsored content on my blog (a girls gotta eat!) but I always disclose the project has been part of a collaboration and I never work with any brands that I don’t love or endorse products I don’t believe in!
