New surrounds.

They say a change is as good as a rest, and while I wouldn’t go quite so far as to say my new home office brings me as much joy as, say, a two week Caribbean vacation might have, I’m going to say it’s pretty close. Ok, maybe not pretty close, but close enough..!I shared many of these photos of my new office over on Instagram recently, as paid of a brand collaboration with home organisation extraordinaires Tylko (who I

Liberty Ocean.

Long-term readers will remember that not long after I moved up to Manchester (five years ago now!), I swapped my old clunky office chair for a sleek – and incredibly aesthetically pleasing – Liberty task chair from Humanscale. I’ve always believed that investing in a high quality ergonomic chair is an absolute must if you work from home, and its safe to say that being completely housebound throughout the pandemic has only strengthened my love and appreciation for my custom

A new look for Autumn.

The transition between seasons is often when I feel most inspired to make changes within my home.

Outdoor Escapism, at last!

I cannot begin to describe how happy I am that summer seems to have finally arrived in the UK this past week! When we moved into our not-so-new-anymore home back in late September, one of the biggest attractions for us was the garden. A shabby, overgrown and unloved garden, but an outdoor space to call our own nonetheless. After spending the first of 2020’s lockdowns – and the whole of last summer –  in a small two-bed apartment with no

A perfect night’s sleep.

Sleep posts are by far the most popular content on my blog, and it’s easy to understand why!  This past year our bedrooms have needed to become true sanctuaries away from the outside world and yet, more now than ever before, the relentlessness of external forces are creeping in and disrupting long-established rhythms and much-loved routines.   I’ve generally always found it pretty easy to fall asleep quickly and not wake up too many times in the night, but the
