The other day while Nick was in a meeting I was left to my own devices and decided to browse the rails at TK Maxx. I spied this beauty of a jumper from a little way off and made a beeline for it. I was pleased to discover when I arrived that it was in my size, was by & Other Stories and was £16 instead of the original £45. Winner.
These pictures honestly don’t do the snuggly, chunky knit the justice it deserves.

Our bedroom has always been a point of contention for me. I feel like it’s the only room in the house that’s never had any proper attention. It’s full of mismatched furniture given to us by various relatives and the walls are cold and grey with no pictures hanging and don’t even get me started on our ‘wardrobe’.
Obviously there’s no point in doing anything about it now that we’re moving but it does mean that I’ve been able to daydream about what my ideal bedroom would look like so that I can start planning for our new house (which we still haven’t found yet!). When Asda’s George Home contacted me about their new product lines I was excited to have an excuse to play around on Polyvore again.
I’ve always fancied that shabby chic look but I worry about getting the balance right as I’m not a very pink and girly type person but I like things with birds on. Nick has always said that I can do whatever I like with the bedroom but I don’t want him to feel like it’s too girly either. Who knows, maybe when it comes to it I’ll go for bright, bold colours like yellow and navy but for now, I’m indulging my inner Becky!
Nick & I will be moving house soon. Although we have no idea where to yet. The market seems to be dead at the moment and I feel like I know every property on Rightmove inside out at the moment. This is a little bit scary to say the least.
I would imagine we’ll probably end up having to move into one of our parent’s houses for a little while as we don’t want to rush in and buy the wrong house just for the sake of it. This isn’t exactly an ideal scenario as we’ve been used to our own space for 7 years now, as have our parents.
However, this does mean that I’ve been back on Pinterest looking for design ideas for our next house. I love the decor of our current house and we probably won’t stray far from it but there’s definitely some little bits and pieces that we’d like to change.
One of the main things I’ve been looking at on Pinterest is living rooms. Our sofas are starting to look a little bit tired and I’ve been trying to decide whether we should keep our black TV stand* or go for a wooden one instead. Another massive and very expensive decision is the fireplace. Our current fireplace is absolutely beautiful and I’m a bit gutted we can’t take it with us but I’ve got my fingers crossed for a lovely old Victorian home with original fireplaces instead.
