As you may know if you follow me over on Instagram or Twitter, we took the unenviable decision to move house during a global pandemic. While it great because we had a lot of spare time to get the move sorted, it also meant we haven’t yet ventured out to shops to choose furniture and decor, so all our rooms still look like little empty boxes which is the complete opposite of our last house with it’s bright, rich colours and textured wallpapers!
The debate about a light fixture for our hallway has been rumbling on since October!
I’m a firm believer in trying new things, from food to music to books and travel. Whilst I am always looking for that new experience or skill to learn, I do have my trusty “can do” list. We aim to visit a new place regularly whether it is near or far – you know where love a road trip here at Lady from a Tramp! Professionally, I push myself to learn or develop a new skill every 3 months at work so I can put it to use for the rest of the year.
It’s only a days until my next travel adventure but I already have my eyes on another trip after that.
To maximise my money and make more trips possible, I try to cut costs and save money where I can. I bought a new coffee machine to stop me buying take away coffee and the saving was significant.
Every year there is a whole heap of pressure on us to set our New Year’s Resolution and stick to them. Usually we over stretch, over promise and then feel extra crappy when we can’t maintain them passed the end of January.
I choose to set realistic goals rather than New Year’s Resolution because I will feel energised and accomplished throughout the following 12 months.
I know how decor is very personal but I think your house reflects your personality, despite trends. My own house is bold and eclectic in colour choice and the finishing touches have been gathered from our travels. Have I ever blogged about my skull wallpaper? See, keeping it unique!
We are going to redecorate our sitting room before Christmas so I have been hunting for inspiration!
