San Francisco Travel Diary | Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and Yosemite National Park

So after a whirlwind few days in LA, we landed in San Francisco and checked into the amazing Alise hotel. This was by far my favourite hotel during our stay in California, it might have something to so with the giant crocheted pineapple we were greeted by in the lobby, but I don't know...

Style | My New Found Love for Statement Earrings

So I thought I would give this trend a chance with these beauties from Happiness Boutique and man, am I converted.

DIY | Make Your Own Faux Fur Stool

 I have been having a little refresh in the house lately by adding some key pieces to each room to liven up my home ready for summer. I wanted to brighten up my dressing area with a new stool and thought a gold, fluffy number would be perfect in my bedroom. The best part is I made it from scratch, and you can do too following the video I made for AO.

Trying Something New with Iberica's New Spring Menu

Iberica Manchester new spring menu

Last week I was invited to try the new spring menu at Iberica in Manchester. The Spinningfield's restaurant is home to authentic Spanish food and dining, aswell as a buzzing, lively atmosphere. I have to admit, Spanish food isn't my first choice when it comes to eating out, perhaps because there isn't much choice out there, but I was excited to try something new and Iberica soon won me over.

Crochet | Hexagon Blanket Sewing Up & Half Hexagon Tutorial

Heard the saying, a girl can never have too many shoes... 
Well it's true with crochet projects too!

Although I probably DO have too many...

Interior Bathroom Makeover Using Sugru DIY Hanging Basket Tutorial

 The bathroom has always been my least favourite room in our house. When we moved in it was the only room we didn't have to do much to apart for a good old scrub and clean. However this meant it has never really felt like we made our own mark on it, it has always just been a boring bathroom.
