Our House - After Photos: Garden

This post isn't so much of a before and after, because we haven't really changed much of the garden, except adding to it. The people who lived in the house before us, someone in their family was a gardener so we were quite lucky that when we moved in, the garden was in pretty good shape. However, a lot of the plants are really high maintenace and to be honest we don't really have the time, nor knowledge to look after them properly.

Next year, we plan to spend some money getting the garden exactly how we want it but for now, we've bought a large corner sofa and table (you know, for all those boiling hot evenings we have...), a swinging chair, two giant beanbags, a fire pit, had a classic brick BBQ built just like my Daddy's and added a few decorations - a Buddha, lanterns and outdoor garden flares (which by the way, I don't recommend!).

Our House - Before and After Photos: Bedrooms & Bathroom

After the fiasco of losing the first house we were meant to be buying (you can read my ranty post all about that drama here), we only ended up buying a two bedroom house so we know space would be tight considering my mountains of essential 'stuff'.

Our House - Before and After Photos: Kitchen

Of all of the rooms in our house, without a doubt, the kitchen has had the biggest transformation. There's not even much I can say about our new cooking haven other than we went for white, white and more white.

The 'before' kitchen wasn't bad at all, I know a lot of people would have loved it, but it just wasn't us. We wanted something more streamlined, cleaner and more modern, to match our plans for the rest of the house.

Our House - Before and After Photos: Lounge & Dining Room

In December 2015, Luke and I bought our first house together, and we (when I say we, I  mean he), spent the first 8 months decorating every single room. Finally we're in a position where almost everything is finished so I'm really excited to share the 'after' photos.

Considering when we bought the house, it was in a relatively good state, most people said we were crazy to waste our money decorating much when it was 'fine'. Yes, it was fine, but it was someone else's house, their style, their tastes. Now it's us, every single inch of it. 

I have previously written posts about our inspiration for the lounge and dining room which looking back, we completely stuck to throughout. We knew all along we wanted a white house with touches of grey, a pop of colour and some mirrored furniture.

Body Confidence with Boohoo

When I sat down to write this post, I spend a lot of time thinking about my body confidence story and how my feelings about myself and how I look have changed over the years. It's actually been really therapeutic to think about how far I've come in regards to accepting myself and taking steps to ensure my own happiness.

After a couple of negative relationships when I was younger, my body confidence was pretty low between 16 and 18. I had put on some weight and was generally unhappy with relationships, friendships, stresses of getting into uni and all the normal pressures of being a teenage girl. The day I found out I got into University was the day I said to myself that things would be different from now on. It was my chance to get away from a bad relationship and start again in a place where no one knew me and I could be the person I've always wanted to be. And I did it.
