• Rental kitchen Flooring Re-vamp DIY!

    It’s time for me to confess… I’ve been hiding something from you. I’ve been avoiding this for some time now. Literally, I’ve been physically avoiding my kitchen since I moved into this apartment. The main feature of the kitchen that upset me so so much was the absolutely hideous vomit green vinyl floor that has surprisingly seen better days. For the last year or so I’ve been fantasising about what life would be like if I owned this apartment and all the things I’d be able to do to it without fear of repercussion. Until recently during my yearly house inspection with the real estate agent, I suddenly found the…

  • My Top ASOS Home Picks!

    I may or may not be a shopaholic, but what I do know is that I am very very familiar with the online retailer ASOS. What’s more exciting that scrolling through endless pages of clothes and hair clips on ASOS? Picking up a super cute vase while you’re at it, maybe! Yes, that’s right ASOS has just launched their homewares range. Now, I’ve had a good scroll through every single item and admittedly, I do have a cart full of things waiting for me to bite the bullet on. In celebration of how much more amazing the internet just got, I’m listing out my top 5 ASOS Home picks for…

  • Top 10 Dining Chairs!

    I consider myself to be a professional shopper. My job kinda actually is… a professional shopper. Shopping could be my second passion in life, next to interior design. Today, I’m combining my 2 passion in the form of interiors shopping! One of the more important items that I shopped for recently was new dining chairs for my apartment. I ordered a new dining table which took roughly 3 months to arrive. Needless to say, I had a bunch of time to procrastinate about my new table’s dining chair partner in crime. I ended up buying my dining chairs second hand off gumtree from a lovely couple who we’re downsizing into…

  • Shop My Living Room! (part 2)

    Phew! Finally. That week between posts really goes slowly doesn’t it? Are you ready for part 2 of Shop My Living Room? I know, you’re excited. Last week we covered my sofa, coffee table & my rug. Let’s get stuck into the rest of my living room! Armchair! | My sofa and armchair are good friends, since they’re made by the same company Timothy Oulton. The shape of this chair is perfect, it just hugs you nice and close while having a small footprint (an essential quality when living in an apartment). I chose to have this made in a chunky grey linen that has a cool blue-ish hue to…

  • Shop My Living Room! (part 1)

    Okay, its taken a whole year and a half but I think we’re there. Where’s there? Oh, its a point where I feel content with the level of “finished” that my living room is currently at. Keep in mind however, “finished” is an unattainable status but we’re as good as there right now. So finally I’m ready to give you a run down on my living room pieces and where you can buy the same or similar to the items I’ve got (incase you’re feeling anything particular, trust me you will). The Sofa! | Okay, I’m going big to start off. This piece is the first and only ever leather…

  • Interiors Girl’s Christmas Gift Guide!

    Okay it’s time to get serious…. Serious about spending your hard earned cash on the people who you love, who love homewares and all things interiors. Obviously if you find something YOU love, you can justify buying a lil’ something for yourself – it’s just a small insurance that you’ll get something you really want this year. Homewares items are such a great gift for anybody interiors-inclined, all you need is a rough idea of their style and that cute little vase they keep on their shelf will be a reminder for many years to come of your great gift buying ability. As a self-confessed interiors obsessed human, I can…

  • Dream Balcony Decor Round-Up!

    I know your balcony is looking lush and summery right now thanks to my DIY faux lawn post last week. You’ve already spent extra time out there, sipping some sort of fancy cocktail instead of just folding laundry like you used to. There’s only 1 thing wrong with this picture though… you’re lacking in the fun decor and furniture department! Outdoor furniture can range from cheap and nasty to crazy expensive and it’s not super fun trawling through all that 90’s brown woven blergh on gumtree. I know why those people don’t want it anymore… cause its chunky and uuuuuugly. I’m on the look-out for a nice and affordable apartment-living-appropriate…

  • My DIY balcony makeover

    Nothing. That’s what I’ve enjoyed so far on my balcony. Okay… that’s a lie. I’ve enjoyed the satisfying feeling of retrieving dry laundry after a good sunny day. But that’s it…. Until now! Something that I’ve been meaning to do for a while is to give my balcony a little makeover, a burst of energy to entice activities such as reading, drinking, eating and even working. There are so many outdoor activities that I’ve been missing out on! The main event of this makeover is the installation of a faux lawn. This will give my balcony a lovely lush softness that can’t be replicated in any other way. It’s going…

  • Top 5 Linen Sheet Sets!

    Summer is coming… and the night sweats are real, especially if you don’t have air-con. (full disclosure, I do have air-con but I’m trying to be a good human and save energy by not sleeping in a freezer as much as I’D. LOVE. IT.) The next best thing to a constant stream of cool, 22 degree celsius air is a set of ‘light-as-a-feather’ linen sheets. If you’re like me and you can’t sleep without at least a sheet on top of you, you’re gonna need to pay attention. Linen sheets are such ‘a thing’ right now, everybody’s trying to find the best ones! I’m on the search for linen sheets…

  • Dinner Set Round Up

    The inevitable has happened.  After 5 years of living out of home, I’ve dropped one of my Ikea dinner plates for the first time. As a self described ‘Shopping Addict’, my immediate thought was “Now I have an excuse to buy a new set of plates!” I had been thinking about it for a while but part of me just couldn’t take the leap when I had a perfectly mediocre set of plates to eat off. Well. The day has come. We’re shopping for a brand new dinner set! This is a pretty big decision that we’re about to make together… Do we choose something patterned, plain, textural, retro? I…
