OOTD: Date day in Liverpool


  I had a random date day with hubby at Liverpool on Thursday and you know what? Even after eating my bodyweight in super tasty Moroccan cuisine and drinking my way through a pitcher of their mint infused lemonade I felt like a million bucks in this skater shirt dress from SimpleBe.   It’s probably the most comfortable dress I…

I want some hygge in my home


  I’m sure I’ve mentioned it a few (OK, few too many) times that hubby and I are in the process of buying our first ever home. And we decided that we’re dumping our old furniture which has followed us through a few rented accommodations and whereas much loved and well used, has definitely come to the end of its…
