Home | House Buying Checklist


It's only about a month until we complete the journey of buying our first home. I haven't had much to say over the last couple of months about our journey to becoming first time buyers and it's because there genuinely hasn't been much to report on. Since getting our offer accepted, the only things we've been up to is getting things together like homeware, quotes for the bills and window shopping for furniture. But as the moving date is coming to a close, I thought it would be the perfect time to make a checklist of all the things you may need to do, have and consider when you buy a house.
As a disclaimer: I'd just like to say that everything I mention in this post is all I know from experience. I am in no way an expert in property buying, I am a first time buyer and I just hope that my posts will support those buying a home for the first time too!

What Cat Wore | My Girl Boss Look


It's been a while since I bought a new outfit. I've been feeling extremely frustrated with my current style and not feeling like I know what it is. On top of that, I've been completely out of touch with trends and so on my last shopping trip I decided to try a couple of things I didn't think I'd like - on purpose to see if I could be inspired by something; anything. Lo and behold, I surprised myself and found a two piece that I fell in love with and makes me feel like a total girl boss!

Bullet Journal | June Set Up


Category is: tropical flowers. (Can you tell I've been watching Ru Paul's Drag Race? lolz) This month I chose to brighten things up in my bullet journal, especially after last month's dreadful theme which was so bad I couldn't bring myself to share the mistake of May's set up. I didn't really use my bullet journal last month but I really wanted to pick things up again and so spent some quality time making this month's pages. I messed up in a few places (as you can probably tell from the intro page) but alas, it's better mistakes than the blue/yellow mess of May.

Wishlist | Park Wildlife


It's been a while since I last created a wishlist but whilst browsing for future home goodies the other day I came across the prettiest collections I've ever seen from Cath Kidston. Just FYI - not an ad! I'm genuinely in love with this and am seriously considering investing in a couple of these pieces. Today I thought it would be nice to get back into my old school 'Wishlist Wednesdays' and share my favourites from the collection.

Things I'm Happy About This Month


It has been a very difficult months for me. There is a lot going on right now and though I'm not yet ready to talk about it yet, I feel the need to at least address that I'm not at my best. I've found it difficult recently to enjoy myself lately and make time do things that I like to do. But I've taken a good hard look at myself and decided that I'm not going to let these negativity take me over and stop me from being happy. Nope. Though I have a lot happening, I'm not going to let it stop me from being optimistic and happy. I need to learn when to stop and take some time for my own well-being. I want to re-realise what makes me happy and take time to enjoy it and appreciate it. So to start myself off, I thought I'd make a list of all the things that have made me happy this month, no matter how rubbish it's been. (Like my 'happy things' post, but with a new name to revamp things and start fresh.)
