Good Things Come In Three’s

Last week was such a good one & I recieved some fantastic news to share with you on ‘The Home That Made Me’ as well as some new plans that I’m very excited about for our home.

As they say, good things some in three’s so here we go –

1. Some of you may remember that back last October, I recieved a visit from the ‘Style At Home Magazine’ crew to take some photo’s of my home for a feature. For my blog post on the day click here.
Well, the magazine is out in a couple of weeks on 27th April AND….guess who’s the front cover star? You’ll be seeing my face in all the shops around the country.
The magazine features a 6 page spread of pictures by photographer Colin Poole as well as an interview with myself.
Make sure to set a reminder on your phone for 27th to go pick a copy up!!


2. Now, as if that isn’t amazing enough….I also got news that you lovely lot have nominated me for not one but TWO categories in the MAD blog awards. I’ve been entered into the ‘Best Blog 2016’ & ‘Best Lifestyle blog’ categories so once voting opens I’ll be sending you all there way.

3. Lastly, you may remember I told you all about some changes around here? Well, that’s because next weekend, we’re having our conservatory taken down (the roof has been leaking throughout the winter!) & building works will start to turn the space into a ‘proper’ extension with a roof & lanterns.
As I’m sure the majority of conservatory owners will understand, it’s probably the most pointless space ever considering it’s too hot in the summer & too cold in the winter!
This will become a much more year-round & usable space so we’ll be carpeting & turning it into a family area.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all blog readers & Instagram followers for all of your support. I’ve been overwhelmed with how sucessful this blog has become in such a short space of time & the opportunities that have risen from it, & it’s all down to you lovely lot! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Love, Charlotte x

    Lovely news Charlotte, very exciting! I'd love a little blog on the steps you have taken to arrange your extension when you get time. We are currently looking into having an extension up and over the garage but really no idea where to start especially as we will need to borrow some money to do it! Best of luck with yours and I look forward to seeing your results!
