Mini B&M Homeware Haul

If you weren’t aware that Gareth and I just recently bought our first house, then where have you been hiding?! It’s literally all I have been talking about for a month. Anyway, it’s been a week now and although we have lived together for coming up to three years, we are still finding ourselves needing bits and bobs around the house.

At the weekend we decided to pop in to B&M and pick up some bargains for the house. I thought I would share them with you in the form of a mini haul.

Getting Your Garden Winter Ready For Birds

As the weather gets colder, now more than ever is the time to start gathering up reserves for your garden visitors. During the harsh Winter months it’s really important to keep your garden birds well fed and your feeders stocked with a variety of seeds, nuts and fats to keep energy levels up.

As I have just moved house, I don’t yet know what types of birds will be visiting my garden so instead have opted to cover all bases. I thought this would be a good opportunity to show you what types of food you can and should feed the different varieties of bird you may find in your garden, as well as some dos and don’ts to keep your garden birds happy and healthy.

Decorating Our House Day 2: Mini Vlog

Hi guys,

it’s Monday 16th and I can hardly believe we are half-way through Blogtober! Today I am sharing another mini vlog to show you what we got up to on day two of decorating. This will be the last mini vlog for awhile – at least until we are all moved and settled!

 

Decorating Our New House; A Mini Vlog

Hi guys,

Today I thought I’d share another mini vlog. This one shows how we have started to decorate our home plus our plans for future decoration. My weekend has been filled with moving/decorating etc so it only seemed appropriate to be blogging about it. I will probably upload a couple more of these mini updates as we continue to decorate and move more bits and pieces in to the house. Hopefully you won’t find these too boring but please let me know either way! Also a huge thank you to Gareth’s parents who have been simply amazing and have really helped us with everything!

 

 

Home Tour; A Very Mini Vlog!

Hi guys,

today I thought I’d share a super short yet sweet vlog of our new home. This tour lasts approximately three minutes and is intended to show you around ahead of our big move which is happening next week (exciting!) I will be following this up with more mini vlogs throughout the whole moving process to keep you update with where we are at. I did think about saving all the footage up to make one big (and proper) vlog but then I thought...nah. I know it sounds cheeky but multiple small vlogs might just be the thing to help me keep on track with Blogtober! I haven’t uploaded this to my Youtube channel so you will find it exclusively here.

Please let me know if you enjoyed this post as it will help me with future vlogs and Blogtober posts!

 

 

Moving House: A Homeware Haul

If you read my Moving House And New Beginnings  post, you will know that Gareth and I are moving in just a couple of weeks time. Ever since we put an offer in on the house we have been busy squirrelling away bits and pieces for our new home.

As we have been living together for two years we already have lots of stuff so don’t really need any of the basics. White goods are built in to our property also so there’s no need to splash out on any overly expensive purchases. But as this is our first house and we want to do things properly, we have decided upon some themes for each room and have been buying decorative pieces accordingly.

 

I thought I would share a few of the smaller bits we have collected so far and our “vision” for the house. I can’t wait to get in and make it ours!

Moving House And New Beginnings

In my October Bucket List post I mentioned that Gareth and I are getting ready to move in to our very first house together. Finally, after weeks of uncertainty we have exchanged contracts and have a move in date. As of Friday 13th October, the house will belong to us.

As this is such a huge and important step in our lives I thought now would be a good time to reflect on everything that’s going on. (more…)
