Good evening lovely Instagrammers - we're half way through the week already & that bank holiday weekend is nearly upon us. I've put up a blog post on using symmetry within interiors which you can probably tell I'm a big fan of judging by my console table. So in love with this new addition, the 'Charlotte' (great name...) flower wreath from @wwwthesecretgardencompanycouk 😍

I often wonder what kind of a world my children will grow up in & how I'll be able to protect them when awful things happen like the tragic attack in Manchester last night upon thousands of innocent families. My job as a mother is to raise these two little human beings to be kind, empathetic & loving; something I've seen all over the Instagram community today from so many beautiful people that have restored my faith in humanity. Sometimes it takes something really bad to make us realise the good in this world & I'm a firm believer in the fact that love will ALWAYS win. We stand with you Manchester #prayformanchester

Bath, book & bedπŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ˜΄

Oh Saturday ❀️ I'm leaving Joe with a poorly Rory who needs his nap today & a DIY task to complete whilst said little one sleeps (obvs he couldn't get away with yesterdays blog post without more added to the get shit done list...). Elsa & I are off to the beach for a BBQ for my nieces birthday!

Nothing like a productive day! I've spent the day cleaning & got lots of work done. Mr The Home That Made Me has also just sent over this months guest post which is now live on being married to an interior addict & why our 'getting shit done' list is his nemesis. Have a gorgeous weekend whatever you're up to 😘

Good morning lovely Instafam & happy Friyay! The sun has decided to make an appearance & I have a child-free day 😬 #literallymyfacerightnow
Don't forget you can get 15% off @danielwellington with 'THEHOME' until 15th June #ad

The weekend is almost in sight! I'm over on the blog talking about living a clutter free life with my top tips & yet again that good old William Morris quote that I always go back to of 'Have nothing in your home that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful' 🏑

Every single evening I go into this room & tidy the mounds of toys into their plastic boxes in the cupboards. Only for them to be pulled out & scattered on the floor again within 5 minutes of my two tiny terrors being awake in the morning. Why?! Because a tidy house brings a tidy mind πŸ‘ŒπŸ» plus with a playroom that looks like that, who can blame me. Here's hoping the rain subsides so we can spent more time outside & less time with them trashing the joint!

Who would have thought we'd be cosying up under blankets in May? Rain rain go away. On the up side, I've discovered a new love for wax melts from @mievascents - move out the way Jo Malone candles, there's a new kid on the block & it's making my house smell absolutely divine πŸ‘ƒπŸ» #whyisntsmellyvisioninventedyet

The sun may have disappeared this week but I know you've all been dying to see my pergola garden makeover that my lovely mum & I built (who said DIY is for men?!) so the blog post is now live including a cheeky 10% off code for @festivelightsltd to fulfill all your festoon light dreams 😍

Happy 4th Birthday to my beautiful little lady, Elsa Mary Amor Valentine πŸ’• she's got more confidence & sass in her little finger than the average fully grown woman but is also so kind, caring & loving. I'm so proud to call her my daughter. New blog post is up on yesterday's party so head on over to look at some snaps of that unicorn loveliness πŸ¦„

Party time for my beautiful little girl before her 4th birthday tomorrow - we've had 20 children this morning & are now welcoming family & friends for a BBQ this afternoon. Blog post will be going up in the next couple of days on all the beautiful unicorn party bits πŸ¦„
