I've seen these journals about for a while but I didn't really know what to make of them. My attitude is that you should be able to do things for yourself without any self help books but that's why this is slightly different. My greatness journal came today and I love it!
I am a sucker for a lovely book or journal and this has not disappointed. For starters it feels pure quality it is of a good size (it was actually larger than i expected but for £35.99 it is worth the money) and the content is really helpful.
There are loads of inspiring quotes and the layout it really easy to work with. It took me about an hour to complete the first part which sets out what you want to achieve in the year ahead, but it was really thought evoking and I actually feel more positive already! Highly recommend.
For a while now Chris and I have been redecorating the house. We are getting married in a couple of weeks time and as it's a new stage in our life we wanted to update the house out with the old and in with the new.
The downstairs bathroom was only finished yesterday and we are so pleased with the results. I got inspiration from Coppi Belfast when I was there a couple of weeks ago for lunch. I loved the way they used metro white porcelain tiles and dark grouting and Edison bulbs in every light fitting. I loved the industrial feel of the restaurant. So when I found the black steel hanging mirror in Tkmaxx I knew it was perfect for the downstairs bathroom revamp. The tiles were bought really cheap from B & Q (£15 for 50) and the grey grout was £10 for a large bag. We absolutely love the overall look we are now wanting to get some pictures up on the left hand wall.
The livingroom was also redecorated recently. I have never had a 'theme' before but im obsessed with Pinterest, and constantly wanting to be inspired by new ideas in design. Recently I have been attracted to teak furniture with a modern twist. I have been looking on Gumtree everyday watching out for particular furniture pieces that fit my style. The picture shows a small corner of the room but you can see the look I have went for. The clock is amazing made 1975 in a sunburst design, it is in near perfect condition and in good working order. I found it on ebay and only cost £27 but I really feel it is a statement piece. The drawers are so dinky but perfect for that particular corner of the room bought from a lady in Ballymena who just wanted to get rid of them for £20 and I love the contrast of the teak wood against the 1970s style wallpaper (wallpaper by Scion Wabi Sabi design £30 a roll). We are wanting to buy a new tan sofa in the New Year so looking forward to that!
I think I'm sorted for Leahs 30th on Saturday night, that is if all my online orders come on time before then.
The faux leather deep red skirt is from River Island £30, top from Urban Outfitters (sale) £20 and sandals from Topshop (sale) £35.

Heading out for my friends 30th at the weekend and not a notion what I want to wear. I have been trawling the websites trying to find something a bit different. Looking on the River Island website I found these Croc effect mule shoes which I think will look amazing with scuba trousers...what would you wear them with?
I just bought my wedding shoes and I love them! Ever since watching Sex and the City with Carrie and her walk in wardrobe and never ending designer shoe collection, I have wanted to wear a pair of Jimmy Choos on my wedding day...and im actually going to!! I've been putting this purchase off for a while but I took the bull by the horns this morn and purchased my first (and probably only) pair of Jimmy Choos!
I'm in love!
As I am never one to sit for long, even with all the wedding plans going on, I decided to update my house decor. A couple of weeks ago I redecorated the master bedroom with dark forest green accent walls and 1970's G Plan dresser, and im now onto the living room.
Our livingroom has seen many changes over the years of us living there, my style and ideas change on a daily basis so it is hard for me to pick and stick. This time I really want to get the look right especially as I've decided to wallpaper!!
I have searched high and low for suitable wallpaper and eventually decided to keep with my already chosen 1970's theme. I found a loop pattern paper from Scion(Arthouse) Wabi Sabi range which I thought would be perfect. We chose the dark cream and light cream colour as the pattern, I feel, should do the talking.
We also bought authentic 1970's drawers with amazing detailed wooden loop handles which sits perfectly against the loop wallpaper.
I also want to pull out my electric fire and replace it with logs but Chris thinks I'm mad....should I?
The decoration has only begun as I now want to accessories with quirky or vintage items so I am continually looking on Rockettstgeorge and Cox and Cox websites.
What do you think of my wallpaper choice?

I can't believe it after months of design, making and printing I have finally sent the wedding invitations.
Hopefully I will know by the end of November who will be going and sort the menus . There is so much still to be done but at least that part is now done. What do you think?
With my hen do only next week I really need to get organised with what I will be wearing. We are heading to Malta for 4 nights staying in St Julian at Le Meridian Spa hotel and I cannot wait!
I have been trying on all my holiday clothes, but none of my bikinis fit anymore (nearly but just not quite) so I bought a really nice black and white swimsuit from debenhams (with the obligatory tummy control element and low leg).
Now that the sales are in full swing I love a bit of Urban Outfitters for holiday clothes. I bought a couple of loose fitting tops, a pair of black levi shorts and a black mid length kimono/cardigan.
Do you have any favourite items of clothes you bring on holidays?

Two favourite purchases:
Levi shorts: £20
Since having Carson I have put off buying new clothes as I still have my 'mummy tummy' and really hope at some stage in the future I might br able to fit back into my pre pregnancy clothes. But as I love to shop and since Carson is turning 1 next month I decided the time is now for some new clothes.
My go to place is always Zara, as I always find something I really like and age appropriate (as much as I am clinging on to Topshop). As I don't get out shopping as much these days I did a bit of Internet shopping and I am looking forward to getting out and about in my new items.
I really like the length of the burgandy dress and I love the sleeves, it is so versitile. The boots are really for work, on trend with the track sole yet stylish with the cutout. I will probably wear these two items together.
Dress: Zara £17.99
