Living and dining room tour

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a mini house tour on my blog. My last one was a couple of years ago when we still lived in the duplex apartment. We moved to a bigger house in March 2017 and it was our very first time moving into a blank canvas, completely unfurnished space….

On being more confident and trusting the process

What a busy few weeks it’s been for me. Things are getting more and more intense at work – that honeymoon probation period is now long gone and I find myself having to work under just as much pressure as everyone else. Speaking of which…

I receive a lot of emails and messages from people who want to get into horse riding and don’t really know where to start. So I thought I’d write a post and cover the basics on which steps to take and what to expect.
