I know I have been rather MIA recently – sometimes life just takes over, but I’ve learnt to accept that actually that’s okay and to just go with the flow (cringing a little bit as I type that). So today I thought I’d just drop by and say hello and let you know a few things that will be coming up soon…
First up, The Bar Cart. Oh yes, the dream is here – my flatmate and I got ourselves a bar cart. We did an amazing DIY hack on it, and it looks frickin’ awesome, I can’t wait to show it to you in it’s full glory.
I’m hoping to start really focusing this blog on home decor, trouble is, I don’t have a huge amount to show you in my own home, so I’m thinking to incorporate much more inspiration-themed posts and perhaps some new flat-snippets as and when we pick up new bits and pieces. We did a huge Ikea haul a couple months back and really re-vamped our lounge area, so I may do a little post on that, and we’re also looking to get some outdoor furniture for our balcony – we’re not sure whether it’ll be a DIY attempt or another trip to Ikea (or perhaps a bit of both), so hopefully I’ll be able to show you that too.
There will be other lifestyle posts cropping up too though, but I might restrict restaurant snaps/reviews to Instagram (you know I love a good foodie Instagram shot), because I much prefer taking proper camera pics when I’ve got time to set up the shot – I panic a bit when I’m aware of everyones gaze in a restaurant!
Also, along the bar cart theme, my flatmate and I have been trying out some interesting cocktail recipes, so I might start documenting these, especially now that we’re getting closer to summer. Give me all the prosecco cocktails please! We’ve got pretty damn good at making frozen margaritas – they’re always a winner, (very dangerous though!) and we’ve tried mixing in a few different flavours which has worked really well too.
I’ve also started a Recipes board on Pinterest – probably more wishful thinking than anything else, but I’m hoping that I might try to start thinking outside the box a little more when it comes to food (I can almost hear the laughter from my friends..!) I love food, but I hate cooking – bit of a strange combo I know, so I would like to start trying to make a few different things myself… (I’m currently imagining some terrible Pinterest ‘nailed it’ fails…) Watch this space!
