It's all About RE!

Hey everyone, i was hunting for some quirky lighting for my kitchen when i came across this website RE. It was set up by Simon Young & Jenny Vaughan who started there shop in 2003 in a small market town in north east England, they also have a great shop online. The shop sells everything and anything from coat hooks to plant pots. My personal favourites are the vintage jelly mould pendent lights, a must in every home and something that will defiantly have a place in my kitchen! 

I've poped the link on and put just a few of my favourite things:

It's really worth checking out! xxx

Girl crush

Abigail Ahern
I must admit to having a bit of a girl crush on designer Abigail Ahern. Her style is just too cool and personally i think she absolutely optimise contemporary quirky design today. I bought her book A Girl's Guide To Decorating a few months ago and fell in love with her interesting and simple ideas on how to add the wow factor to your home. Her shop ( is also great but a little bit expensive for someone on my budget but the perfect place to window shop and get ideas.


I love love love wallpaper but i just think it can be so daunting and final. Ones it's up it's up. It's such a faff to get off and if your anything like me you can love the idea of something one minute and hate it the next! However there is a solution, you may all be aware of this but i wasn't until the other day that you can purchase temporary wallpaper it's genius! Urban Outfitters online store have some really lovely ones and they are no more expensive then a normal roll of wallpaper. 

These are just a few of the ones they do:

Blog Virgin

Hello fellow bloggers, i must be completely honest with you i have no idea how this works! I saw it on Ugly Betty and thought it might be fun.
I just bought my first house, well flat and i thought it might be cool to blog about doing it up and how i attempt to turn it into the palace i have dreamed about with next to no money!
My love is Interior Design and fingers crossed one day i will be able to turn other peoples homes into palaces all day everyday, but for now i shall start with mine.
