Easter at The H House

Hello from our new home! This is the first post I've written since we've moved, and we're finally starting to feel like we're at home, and not just living in an empty shell. The first few nights were so strange, no internet or TV, just the two of us, no furniture had been built apart from the bed. However, fast forward just over a week and things are starting to find there place, the fridge is full and we have a dining table!

 This Easter Weekend was our first proper weekend together in the house, we decided to treat ourselves to a relaxing weekend after all the chaos, I got in some extra yummy treats, we had a luxury breakfast in bed and cooked a scrumptious Sunday roast. The sun even reared its head occasionally.

 I love decorations and making a space look pretty, but with the limited time we've been here and all the other bits like re-decorating, and building furniture I didn't get chance to get any Eastery décor up in time.  To make our space more fitting for the season I bought some pretty yellow and white flowers from Asda to pop in my cream jug vase, a gorgeous gold bunny from TK Maxx, which has found it's home on our bookshelves, and of course lots of chocolate!

 We hosted our first House warming parties with our friends and Family, which were so much fun. It's made us so excited for all our future plans, summer garden parties, Birthdays. Christmases and more! I cannot wait to share our before and after's and more home posts from the 'H house' as I lovingly call it. For now though I best get to sleep.

Hope you all had a lovely Weekend!

A Little Update

 Things have been fairly silent here recently, and on all my social media channels to be fair. It's not because I've been stuck for ideas, or haven't had the drive to complete posts, it's actually because we've been in the final stages of buying our first home together!

My space has been filled with boxes, my bed has been broken down and I only have a few belongings left out that haven't been packed safely away. It's been both stressful and exciting. You never really realise how much rubbish you keep until it's time to pack it all up, I cleared out a lot of my stuff, old clothes I don't wear, books, old products I don't use. It was cleansing, yet a bit frustrating too! Finally Wednesday rolled round and we picked up our keys.

 What most of you probably haven't seen through my current posts is that I love interior décor. I'm Pinterest obsessed, I have stacks of home magazines, and I love to follow interior Instagram's. I really wanted to incorporate this into my blog from the start, but I just didn't have the space. I mean, I only had my bedroom, which wouldn't make for the best interior posts! However, I'm now super excited to share our house to home journey with you, and give my blog a new lease of life. I want to cover everything from your first mortgage appointment to styling your coffee table. I've learnt a lot in the short time we've been going through this process and wish I had known more at the time.

 For now though, I'm internet-less, which is actually harder to bear than I thought! I hope to be up and running soon, with an update of how we're getting on etc.

Speak soon!

A Neutral Spring Outfit

Whole Outfit - Peacocks | Bag - Kurt Geiger
I put together this outfit for a very special day, we were meeting our wedding photographer to take our engagement photos! I was so excited, I decided that I wanted to wear timeless colours, that are very neutral and complimentary to our surroundings. Which I know sounds like a lot of work just for some photos, but I really want to get some of them printed off, so when we finally get our house I have some proper photos of us to put up, and not just our selfies!
It was fairly chilly, though the sun did try to make an appearance. I wanted to be warm, but not covered up by a coat so I opted for a cream roll neck jumper, roll necks are staples in my wardrobe at the minute. I'm not a fan of thick knits so choose high necklines instead to keep in the warmth.
Over the top I wore a light beige, sleeveless jacket. I really love the light weight material of this jacket, as well as the flattering, waterfall style neckline. It really adds some texture to the outfit.
To finish off the look I wore some light khaki jeans. I think the khaki really compliments the cream and light beige in the outfit, but also gives it a subtle pop of colour. All I need now is some proper spring weather, it's currently pouring with rain and trying to snow. Where are you Sunshine?
What colour theme will you be opting for this spring?
