I've been a little quiet recently but there's been lots going on behind the scenes. We put our house on the market a few weeks ago and have accepted an offer on it, so we're moving! We viewed a property we really liked but just missed out on it unfortunately so we're still looking for a new home. Moving is such an emotional rollercoaster isn't it?
Well that was 2017. It feels as if we are living through quite difficult times globally, but on a personal level I'm ending the year feeling pretty positive. I'm grateful for the love and support of my friends and family and for all the opportunities the past 12 months have brought me. I'm also thankful for this wonderful community here on Instagram. I know some of us have a little moan about the algorithm and the pressures of social media from time to time but Instagram remains an overwhelmingly positive and inspiring place. Thank you for always brightening my day with your comments and likes. It was great to meet some of you this year - I hope to get to know a few more of you in 2018. Wishing you a new year filled with peace, health and happiness. x
Settling down for an evening at home watching Netflix. The picture quality on our @samsungUK QLED TV really is incredible. It delivers exceptional brightness and picture detail with a depth and realism you can easily lose yourself in. It's also ultra high definition, so with an increasing number of broadcasters and streaming services now creating programmes in UHD we're ready to experience the very latest in high definition content. #samsungqledtv #ad
Christmas highlights so far... 1. Eating my entire bodyweight in cheese. 2. Spending lots of lovely time with my family and actually managing to not fall out with anyone. 3. Resisting the urge to take the tree to the tip the day after Boxing Day. 4. @waitrose black forest panettone (quite possibly the best thing ever). 5. More snow! #happytwixmas
I know there's no sign of more snow on the horizon at the moment but a little dusting on Christmas Day would be lovely please.
Clad in brushed stainless steel the ultra sleek OneRemote for our @samsunguk QLED TV has a thoughtful and simple control layout that is a joy to use. Every time you pick it up you are reminded just how well considered everything about this TV really is. It allows you to easily control all your connected devices so you avoid the need for multiple remotes. You can use it to quickly access everything from streaming services to gaming as well as setting up alerts for your favourite programmes via the on screen Samusung Smart Hub. #samsungqledtv #ad
Happily easing into the final countdown to Christmas after a lovely weekend filled with Cotswolds walks and a festive family Sunday lunch. Happy Monday everyone.
We've been busy getting our house ready to put on the market this week as we're hoping to move in the new year. One of the things I'm most looking forward to in our next home is having a bigger kitchen, and I'm already thinking about what it might look like. Often with kitchen design it's the surface materials that add real wow factor and over on the blog today I'm talking about why I'm considering quartz for our next kitchen. @compacsurfaces sent over some samples from their beautiful new UNIQUE collection to help me make up my mind. #ad #CompacSurfaces #Unique
Dressing the front door is always one of my favourite rituals at this time of year. I love coming back home on a cold December evening to be welcomed by a pretty festive wreath. It always gives me a warm feeling inside and reminds me of everything I love most about Christmas. #christmascountdown #designhunterhome #mywhiteco
Just a few more work days until things start winding down here for Christmas. Hope you're all staying cosy in this big freeze.
