Recap on the last week 17th – 24th October

Happy Tuesday everyone, Yes i am sorry i am a day late writing my weekly blog but thats because i have finally MOVED HOUSE…


The last week has been a emotional rollercoaster, I have moved 8 times in the last 4 years and i still hate it, moving house has got to be one of the most stressful things in life to do.

Me and Dan had been so busy all last week packing and more packing, as we have moved from a 3 bedroom house to a double bedroom at my parents house until we move to America next year, Its going to be cramped and hard work but it is free and we can save so much money living there as we aren’t paying out over £1,000 a month in rent and bills now, so thats a huge positive for us.

We have recently decorated our room at my parents house as well as the lounge as my mums had our sofa and a few bits of furniture we where getting rid of, it looks like our old home to be honest and its super cosy, i will post pictures of the process of us decorating it as its still got a few bits left to do, i.e mirror and pictures to be hung on the walls.


This is a picture in the process from painting my mums living room all ivory to get the walls lighter as they where very dark before in terracotta and dark green colours, this made it easier to apply the classic cream and cookie dough paint as it needed 2 coats which is less than we anticipated, My mum had a new carpet throughout the house too which is this lovely mink colour in the bottom right photo, its called rodeo drive in the shade Oyster from B&J carpets in Sutton.

This is a picture of our room at my parents house before we started putting furniture in it as its cramped and snug for 2 people, we have the same carpet as the lounge and ivory walls with my old curtains from our house, i have listed below where the items are from.

  • Curtains; The Range 
  • Tie backs; B&M
  • Lamp shade; Dunelm 
  • Curtain pole; Jysk 
  • Hanging heart; Brambells
  • Carpet; B&J Carpets in the shade Oyster


Over the weekend we tried to chill as much as possible as we had a busy week redecorating and packing, so we wanted to do nothing and be lazy as we knew Monday was going to be manic and tiring, and it certainly was that, I am so glad we have moved now and all settled for a few months before we do it all again “oh the stress”.

This week will be back to normal for blogs and i am off to Meadowhall this week so i will do a shopping haul next week.

Thanks for reading.x
