“God created the world but the Dutch created the Netherlands.” – Rene Descartes We went to the Netherlands for a week back in April, and I crossed another country off my list. Thirteen countries down, 17 more to go to reach 30! Andrew says travelling with me is starting to get easier, lol. I wouldn’t say … More The Netherlands
This post is dedicated to my fellow renters out there. I see you, living with poor design choices that you didn’t make, and can’t change without risking your security deposit. You stare at perfect homes on pinterest, and dream of customising your own house one day. Well maybe you don’t, but I certainly do. I … More A Renter-Friendly Kitchen Makeover
Out of all the rooms in our house, the bedroom has been the biggest pain to decorate. I’ve faffed around in here for 2.5 years, and it just might be finished now! In my post last week, I shared how I chose that lovely canvas print from Photowall, and this week is all about the … More New & Improved Bedroom Tour
The bedroom got a few upgrades recently that I’m pretty excited about. We finally got around to buying a new mattress in December, and although it hasn’t changed the appearance of the room much, it’s made a huge difference as far as our sleep is concerned! The space above the bed was another area that … More New Artwork For the Bedroom
We needed a change of scene before Christmas -something completely different from home. I think both of us were missing California when we decided on Lanzarote, and it showed!
We stayed in Puerto del Carmen near Los Jameos Playa, and beached. it. up. We filled up on tapas and enjoyed the sunshine. … More Chill-out In Lanzarote

Look at the drops of water falling out of the sky! Oooo, FROZEN water falling out of the sky! Let’s play in it! Did I just … More Getting Used To Seasons When You’re From California
Hello world! Remember me? I didn’t mean to disappear from the blog for so long. August and September came and went without much excitement, so I didn’t feel the itch to write. But I’m breaking my silence now to tell you all about our mystery weekend booked through srprs.me! Srprs.me is a travel site that … More A Weekend In Geneva
It’s been TWO WHOLE YEARS since we left California and moved to England! When I look back on the last two years, I feel so proud of us. We moved to this country knowing NOTHING. Now we are practically experts – well at least Andrew is. Me on the other hand… Sure, I know a lot about … More Cheers To Two Years! Now What About The Next 3?
I don’t know about you, but candles are a staple in our house. I like to keep air fresheners and nice-smelling things permanently on hand, and therefore I’m always on the lookout for quality candles that don’t cost a fortune. When I do come across one that ticks all the boxes (great scent, long lasting, … More Meet The Inquisitive Co
I was asked recently what decorative piece in my home is my absolute favorite, and I thought “why not do a post about it?” My favorite thing is actually a collection of items bought on our travels –that counts as one right? I’m not really into shopping on vacation, and neither is Andrew. We travel for the experience rather than … More Treasures From Our Travels
