So a bit of a life update to start with: I have moved back into my mums house. It isn’t something I’m ashamed of, and I think it’s becoming more and more common these days. But Josh and I just couldn’t take spending 80% of our income on rent and bills any longer. We really want to save for our own home, but it was just impossible living in a rented house. So, a few months ago we moved back with mum. We are incredibly lucky to have a family home to go back to, but it hasn’t come without its difficulties.
The first of which has been fitting three people’s stuff into my mums home. She has been an absolute babe and gave up her bedroom for me and Josh – I mean, come on, mums rock! Moving her room into the smaller back bedroom has meant we have had to be creative with storage. And although we haven’t quite got the house back to normal, it was about time mum got some nice pieces for her room to make it feel a little more homely. View Post
All I really want for Christmas is my family and friends around me. But writing a post all about those guys might not be what you’d expect to see on Made From Beauty. So in the spirit of ecommerce lavish wishlists, and trying to give Josh a few ideas (he’s got no idea what to get me), let’s have a bit of christmasy fun shall we?
Here is my wishlist this year… View Post
If you’ve been around these parts before then you would have probably already seen my BIG Beauty Gift Guide & Beauty Stocking Fillers posts. Well, apart from giving beauty products, there is one other type of gift I love to wrap up at christmas time; personalised gifts.
For me, nothing beats getting a gift that I know someone has put a lot of thought in to – so that’s exactly the feeling I want to give someone when they unwrap a christmas pressie from me! Personalised gifts can be a brilliant way of just adding that special touch to gifts. With bloggers notoriously difficult to buy for – a personalised gift might be the way to go! View Post
We love Homesense over on Made From Beauty, they invited me to their new store opening (POST HERE) and kitted me out with some fabulous picnic stuff (in THIS POST) and now they’ve made my Monday morning a little better today by leading me a helping hand at breakfast. View Post
