If you read my January catch up post, then you probably know that we are moving home in the upcoming weeks. It is so exciting! The waiting to get into our house is as if we are watching paint dry at the moment though. I feel like we have been waiting for forever! We already have made so many plans and have some really awesome ideas for home decor, and things we need to buy.
But there is good news πŸ™‚ we officially have a date to get the keys. it is just gonna be another 3 weeks.

So now we know, I thought it is the perfect time to share with you some of the things on my Amazon wish list right now, for the new house. Especially since I seem obsessed with home decor right now. Our new place is going to have a mainly grey theme throughout the house. I can not wait to get in and make the house our own.

These are all items that I either intend on buying or have already brought and love.

Silver Metal basket cage lamps

home decor

The wired decor seems to be so in right now! from lamps to baskets and tables! I’ve found this set of 2 lampshades which they would make perfect bedside table lamps. Cute, modern, and shiny!

Rustic floating shelves

home decor

I am pretty in love with the idea of floating shelves around the house right now! I love these hanging shelves. We don’t actually have any shelves at the moment, more just bookcases! so I think a few of these would really look nice!

String lights

home decor

For anybody that knows me, you probably know already that I am completely obsessed with fairy lights! I have a few sets already! Mainly battery-operated sets. I really love the diamond wired shapes around the lights as well! I have already ordered these, to hang above our bed.

Minimalist Grey Wall Clock

home decor

What is a house without a clock, right? I mean, who doesn’t own a clock?… I would say a clock these days is definitely more decor then it is needed. If someone asks me the time I check my phone. I can’t lie.
But having a clock up is useful, especially in the kitchen. which is where I am planning to put this one. Grey and simple to fit our theme.

Set of 3 white woven baskets

home decor

These woven baskets are adorable! I am all for cute storage solutions. Especially ones that minimalise clutter! For a set of 3 baskets! under Β£20 is really reasonable. They are also sold in a variety of colours, but of course, white goes with our grey theme a lot nicer.

Ladder Bookshelf

These bookshelves are so bloody cute! And I totally need one. Not even just want. This would make such a cute addition to our living room. They are so popular right now too! Honestly, I have about 5 or 6 different ladder bookshelves on my wishlist right now! all very similar but I am so torn on what one to actually buy. Don’t be surprised if I cave in and buy all of them.

Knot Ball Cushion

The fact that these cushions are so unique compared to the standard square cushions really won me over. So soft and comfy to lean on, what is not to love.

Grey Fleece Fur Throw

home decor

I absolutely love these throws. We already have a few of them. But we just had to buy one in grey! It was needed after all. So soft and cuddly. Perfect for a movie night under the throw with popcorn and a hot choc! (Did I mention I cant wait to make this house our own?)

Woodwick Candles

Bit of an obvious home decor item. I am constantly lighting candles, but WoodWick produces the best candles. Only I buy these less often because they are more costly. So I am buying some of these for a treat. They smell beautiful and the wooden wick crackling is a soothing sound.

Key Holder

Lastly, I am completely loving this Keys holder. I love the idea of us coming home hanging our keys up! maybe even Bella’s lead! so I had to buy this!

So as I said, this is just a few of the things we have brought and are buying towards the new house. Since we are starting from scratch, and first time living on our own, there is still so much to do and find! thank god for bargain shopping, that’s all I can say!

If you have any home decor ideas, leave me a comment below! I love hearing new ideas and seeing what we can incorporate! when we finally get there.

January 2020 – wrapping up the month.

January is known for being the longest month of the year. The excitement of Christmas and then the January sales. Then there are all the January bills. Bigger bills than other months. So we pretty much go all of January skint. Every single year.

This January has been no different for us. We have spent most of the month completely skint. Which is no fun at all? However, even though January has been a month with no money, Emma and I have had the busiest month ever. Therefore it is the first time January has ever flown by. For me anyway.


BIG news

At the beginning of this month, we began a scary and incredible journey! It started off by house hunting.
We have known for a long time now that this would be coming up this year, that we would be finding our own place to live. Unfortunately, there is no option to stay where we are. We currently live on a farm that is being sold for housing. Really sad, because this place is beautiful and I love living here.
It’s absolutely horrible watching the builders tear up the grounds which has already been happening for months.


So at the beginning of this month, I and Emma set off to a couple of estate agents. Before we knew it the whole week was booked with appointments to see varies different houses. By the end of the week, we were knackered. but we had decided there was 1 specifically we wanted a second viewing on.

It is the house we have chosen. It really is beautiful, inside and out. The seller wants a quick sale as well. The house has only been lived in for 6 months. Meaning its pretty brand new. especially being a new build.

We are hoping that we will find out a date this week, we’ve started packing, and buying new furniture. Believe me its so bloody exciting! I can not wait and neither can Emmy! I’m pretty certain once we have moved in I will do a blog post with lots of piccies.

Another thing that happened this January…

This is something that really grits my teeth. So I am taking the opportunity to name and shame on my blog.
Back in march last year we paid the deposit to our wedding venue. The Botleigh Grange Hotel. As you can see from the website they have now gone into administration. There is a news article here.

So after much back and forward, frustration and many tears on my part. We have secured a new venue for the same date! Great, right? the only thing is we have now lost Β£1000 on the deposit of a wedding venue we cant have.

Ironically we did receive an email from their admin team saying that they are trying to seek out a buyer and what are our intentions for keeping with the venue for our wedding date. I can assure you guys that I have emailed back demanding to be put on the creditor list.
Firstly, who in their right mind would stay with a venue at the risk of spending more money to have stolen from them, which has closed? If someone knows the logic in this please share! I myself am gobsmacked! But of course, this does leave us confused about what will happen next. They never responded to my email. Great communication. (Sorry but it is hard not to be sarcastic about this).

I am pleased that we can now move forward with the wedding planning. So we are very lucky to have been in a position where we can put a new deposit down. This does not change the upset on the bad treatment from the Botleigh Grange.

That’s enough for one month!

So that has been my January! Hectic, emotional, busy and more ups and downs than a rollercoaster. If this is what its gonna be like this year, I can’t wait to see what next month brings!
