Its coming up to the 1st of December which mean its officially ok to Christmas the hell out of your house! But of course you want it to look good but don't want to have to spend lots of money when you have presents to buy for.

So I have done a bit of searching and shopping to share some Christmas Interior inspiration:



Christmas Tree Inspiration


Well, when it comes to Christmas tree decorating you kind of have two options:

1. The Minimal Look


2. The all singing and dancing look



I am personally more of a fan of the minimal look! Rustic looking trees with acorns, decorated with white baubles. I think the Christmas tree is the most important choice first of all - as the style, thickness and height can completely change everything.

When looking for a tree myself, I really wanted a green tree which had the frosted white snow on the tips and acorns all over. I wanted it to look as real and bushy as possible but last for years.

Lakeland Furniture sold the exact one I was looking for and for an amazing price. 


My Christmas Tree



You can also get it in 6ft or 8ft depending on how big your living room is

The tree is super bushy, and I have had so many compliments. I bought my white baubles and stars from Debenhams and the white lights from Wilkos.

However for those wanting to go all out, I have truly found the best place for Christmas tree decorations is HomeSense or Matalan. Their baubles are absolutely beautiful but can get pricey if you buy them individually.

Festive Interior Ideas

Other than the tree, it is super important to add a festive touch to the rest of the house.

Christmas Lights:


Lighting makes absolutely anything look festive! Wapping lights around your mantle piece or outside in the garden can really make it feel like Christmas. Festive Lights.com have probably every type of fairy light you can think of to add a Christmas touch to your home. But here are my faves:


From Left to right: Festoon fairy lights £8.99, Festoon Fairy lights style 2 £6.99 (on offer), Frosted glass jar fairy lights £4.99, Outdoor Festoon Fairy lights £9.99, Copper wire wall lights £34.99, Fairy LEDs £8.99. 

The Festoon style fairy lights are my absolute favurite! Something I have been looking for myself. Not only do they add to the Christmas touch, but they can be used all year round either inside the home to give that cosy feel or outside to light it up during summer nights. 

I also have a slight dream of being THAT house that I covered in Christmas lights outside. Im waiting to have kids just so I have an excuse but one day my house WILL look like this...



Christmas Wreaths: 

Wreaths are an absolute must when it comes to Christmas and there are so many alternative ways to have one. So here is some inspo:


I hope this post helps you choose what look to go for, but of course If you are looking to make any of these yourself - take a look at this post here or Pinterest for guides. 


Those that follow me on Instagram will know I recently went on a roadtrip round the Scotland highlands for a 4 day weekend.



























This year I told myself I would cut down on holidays and focus my finances on my house so decided to do short and sweet UK trips. In the summer I visited Cornwall and this Autumn, me and my friend decided to go up north to Scotland. So this is a little post on what I got up to, where I went and how much I spent.

Pre- booking Scotland

Although we did book 2 hotels/bnbs before we went the trip was pretty spontaneous! We knew where we wanted to start and where we wanted to end so booked both bnbs and pretty much followed the wind. See where it blew us! We looked at Booking.com and the prices were pretty expensive and didnt look that great. So we decided to look at AirBnB instead and couldn't believe what we found. We found farm cottages, and ski lodges for around £75 per night and booked them straight away.

From where I live (Doncaster), it took round 4 hours to get to our first stop. We full up the car and hit the road on Thursday early mornings.


Where to go in Scotland?


We decided to go to the following places:

  • starting at Balloch (this is where the Lochs begin (loch lomond) and is one of the most beautiful places ive seen in the UK)
  • Loch Lomond
  • Luss
  • Inveruglas
  • Falls of Falloch
  • Killin (the start of Loch Tay)
  • Loch Tay
  • Kenmore
  • Aberfeldy
  • Cairngorms National Park
  • Tomatin
  • Finishing off at Aviemore

Must see in Balloch and Loch Lomond - Scotland

  • Balloch Castle
  • Balloch Castle Fairy Trail
  • Cameron House
  • Duck Bay
Balloch is a small town which starts of the Lochs in Southern Scotland. It starts off one of the most beautiful lochs called Loch Lomond. Whilst there we visited the Balloch Castle which is absolutely beautiful. The grounds are huge and allows you to walk along the loch and see the views from all angles.



























You can visit the Chinese garden and see the beautiful trees and flowers as well as the fairy trail too.






We then drove up the left hand side of Loch Lomond stopping off at Luss, Inveruglas and Falls of Falloch on the way. 






Must see in Loch Tay - Scotland

Loch Tay is the next loch we visited as it is on they way up north to Cairngorms National Park. We started off in  little village called Killin of which we visited the Falls of Dochart. The falls are absolutely beautiful of which you can walk along and even swim in. We stayed on a farm in the middle of the Loch with the most beautiful view. 



The next day we stopped off at Kenmore for some lunch and shortbread and Aviemore for a break from the long drive. Here we visited Castle Menzies and Birks of Aberfeldy. 




























After leaving Aviemore, we spent the next 2 hours heading to the highlands going to our next and last stop of Cairngorms National Park. 

Must see and do in Cairngorms National Park

We had one day to spend in Cairngorms which is not enough to see it all. the drive through Cairngorms seeing the amazing views was out of this world. It actually felt like was in Canada. We used our time wisely and head straight to Aviemore - the biggest ski resort in the UK. I was so surprised to find how vibrant it was, busy with bars and restuarants but also quaint and in the middle of nowhere. This is where we saw the reindeers and climbed some beautiful mountains. We then head to Tomatin for the night and stayed in this huge lodge before heading home


















How much to take for a Scotland trip?

Four four days, I personally spent:

Total: £175

Day1: £25 half of Bnb in Balloch
Day 2: £38 half of Airbnb in Loch Tay
Day 3: £35 half of Airbnb in Cairngorms + £14 to see the reindeers

Petrol/Diesel: four days total £75

Food was generally cheap and waterfalls and attractions were all free! 

Going to Scotland in October was one of the best choices as the trees and views were autumny but warm enough to not have to wrap up too much.

You can find more pictures on my Instagram and my next post will be sharing where I stayed including links to the AirBnbs with this view...




As I write this post, its 30 degrees outside and its scorching! Being inside is not necessarily something you want to do when its this hot, however one thing I have wanted to do is add a summer touch to what feels like my cosy/autumn vibe living room.



With rustic vibes and cosy throws, Ive felt its time to add some brightness to my living room and a touch of colour. And here's how to get that look ....

So those of you that follow me on Instagram, you will probably have noticed I have amazing eyelashes! Ok no, they're not real! They are false but I absolutely love them!




I wear fake eyelashes on a daily basis. Basically, you know there's always that one kid that finds scissors and decides to cut their fringe short. Well I was that kid! But instead I cut off my eyelashes instead of my fringe (my sister did her fringe). I KNOW RIGHT! What was I thinking! I'm not sure - but basically they struggled to grow long again. Yes they grew back but not as long as they were and therefore I started wearing fake eyelashes when I was around 14!


Over the years, Ive changed lashes. Trying different ones from £10 a pair ones to Ebay £1.99 ers. I have shopped around and found some truly awful ones but these however are my absolute fave! I was accidentally sent these ones by a brand on Ebay (I ordered a different set) but to my surprise they were they best i'd ever seen!





They are thick and long, just how I like it, but also quite 'flicky' and had that natural look. They are lightweight (which is a must have when you wear them daily as they seriously weigh your eyelids down) and the best bit - they're just £2.79 with free delivery.

Before people think this is an AD, I swear it is not. I genuinely rate these as the best fake eyelashes ive ever bought and cant believe the price for 5 pairs!!!! So many people have commented on them on Instagram or even in real life so I thought id share a post and let you all in to my little secret and tell you wear I buy them.

Helping you girls out ;)

SO - they're from Ebay which you can find here . Enter the below details and you're done!



Thank me later
