Link Loveliness – things that have helped me this week

This week’s Link Loveliness is all about sites and posts I’ve found that have helped me in some way this week.

With lots of changes happening in my life and lots of things happening very quickly, I’ve had to be organised and structured in the way I’m thinking about things. So these have helped in some way…

  • This one’s pretty obvious since we’ve just bought a new house (so much more on this to come)! Rightmove is probably the best property search engine out there in the UK and I’ve been utilising it’s helpful tools that show you other properties that have sold in the area you’re buying in, what they’re worth etc etc. So you know what you’re getting yourself into.
  • Home and Lifestyle Magazine’s website is full of inspiration for your home interior and other stylish bits.
  • When you’re buying a home, money obviously is at the forefront of your mind ALL THE TIME! You need to think about budgeting very seriously and it’s probably the single-most largest investment you’ll ever make in your life. Not to be taken lightly! And Money Supermarket gives you lots of simple, everyday tips that you can adopt to save cash daily.
  • Enough of the practical and onto the making it pretty.

So my week has been a fairly practical and grown-up one really. Full of mortgages, bank statements and solicitors (sometimes I forget I’m technically an adult and have to responsible things).

Have you got any helpful tips for getting through the home-buying process in tact?Continue reading

Finding inspiration while wearing sparkly bunny ears – A thank you to The Blogcademy

When I walked into the sun-drenched, white-washed Curtain Road Studios in East London and saw the three headmistresses watching as their new cohort of pupils entered the classroom, I instantly knew that it was gonna be a good weekend.

I was stepping into The Blogcademy – a 2-day interactive blogging workshop like no other. Hosted by the effortlessly sassy Gala Darling, Kat Williams and Shauna Haider, us ‘Blogcadettes’ were in extremely capable hands. These ladies are seriously awesome, intelligent and incredibly successful to boot. Who wouldn’t want to follow in their footsteps!?
