Get Christmas Ready with The Nelson’s

It’s my favourite time of year! There’s nothing better than filling your home with sparkle, lights and more candle’s than usual. This year I got a few new bits for the house and thought I would put it all together for you incase you needed any inspiration for your home too. I linked as many of the products I could. One of my dreams is to have a massive 12ft tree in a beautiful bay window. However, until then I love my 6ft basic tree. Our tree and the accessories were bought when we first moved into our home 2 years ago but the styles are still available. Tree // The Range Baubles // The Range Lights // Asda or Amazon * This year I picked up a few extra bits for our TV unit. I had my eye on the garland and light up star from The White Company but managed to find a cheaper substitute from Argos. It is basically the exact same, might not last as long but I’m happy with it regardless. …

If you know me well enough, you will know how much I LOVE a trip to TK-MAXX. I’m constantly online looking at home interior pages on Insta or Pinterest, and I can honestly say, TK-MAXX is one of the best places to pick up home accessories at a low-cost. I will be honest though, I’m not that great at putting bits and bobs together, but I do try. I managed to pick up a few little beauties during the post christmas clearance and wanted to share them with you. Oh, and if you have any better ideas on how to style them, please drop me a comment. Marble Frame with Silver Detailing // SALE £5 Mirror Candle Tray // £19 Hand Soap // SALE £1 Patterned Dish // SALE £2 I love the little black and white dish so much I’m going to try to go back to pick up a few more, to use for dips and nibbles when we have friends over. Or I might just use it as a cute little jewellery …

Flying the Nest

Good Evening folks! Over the last few weeks I have spoken to people who have recently moved out from their parents home and ventured into the world, alone. It wasn’t until then that I realised how many of us secretly struggle to deal with the change, so I decided to tell you guys how it affected me. You never know, I might make someone feel a little bit better! Its just short of 18 months since I flew the nest and went solo with Ross. We were extremely lucky that instead of having to rent for a few years we could go ahead and mortgage our own property. At 21, it’s not a common occurrence and you don’t realise how much of a big commitment it is until you’re signing on the dotted line to say your liable for thousands of pounds. We had wanted to get our own place for some time but our engagement in December 2015 hurried things along slightly. Applying for a mortgage has to be THE MOST stressful thing I’ve …
