Hi! I’m Lola B and welcome to my blog.
So, a little about me… After training as a journalist, I decided to make the not-so-big leap into blogging, after being told it was the ‘future’ by a past lecturer; seems he wasn’t wrong!
A huge fan of home interiors, decor and anything home improvement-related, I started up my first blog back in 2011. I’d like to think that I’ve come a long way since my first ever Blogspot journal!
My interest in home improvements and decor stems from my work in PR where I worked with interior designers, hotels, B&B’s and guesthouses. It always amazed me how extraordinarily beautiful these establishments are and I then made it my mission to creative, easy and over all, cheap, ways to re-imagine some of these looks, styles and trends in to home decor and make them accessible for your everyday Joe (or Jane) Bloggs.
I’ve been lucky enough to travel around the world in some of the most luxurious hotels and holiday lets, gazing my eyes over anything I can take from the world of hospitality and recreate it in my 2-bed bungalow in Scotland as well as picking up handy hints and tips on home, lifestyle and parenting.
Here, I live with my partner Alfie, my little bundle of joy (and terrible two-year-old!) Charlie and our two cats, Smudge and Shark.
When I’m not being mum, I love nothing more than flicking through Pinterest and finding new and inspiring ways to decorate and renovate our home. Although, that’s not to say I don’t encounter some mishaps and misadventures in my quest to have the perfect little home!
So, welcome to my blog and I hope I can share some how-to’s and, crucially, how-not-to’s, if you’re looking to inject a little vigour into your forever home.
Thanks for visiting!
