It’s time! I have waited so long to do this post. Over a year in fact. I didn’t feel very confident revealing my living room makeover on the blog until I was 100 per cent happy with it. Then last week, I bought a few new bits and bobs for my room – and suddenly, […]

I’m a have-a-go-hero when it comes to DIY. But I don’t always get it right (I’ve lots wonky things up in my home). When my beautiful (but heavy) new bedroom mirror arrived, I learned how to hang it properly – and safely. All you need is a couple of power tools, a denim jumpsuit and red lipstick.
