Ootd: "I tell you all the time, Heaven is a place on earth with you"

 
Its been a while since I did an outfit post, mainly due to unpredictable weather, broken down cars and the fact I have a viral infection, meaning I'm covered in a rash! However this delay in a way was a blessing, as yesterday was the most glorious day, and we took a trip to a local stately home for their nostalgic weekend, so we got to wander the beautiful gardens providing the perfect back drop for outfit photos. This beautiful dress I am wearing was sent to me from the ever so lovely ladies at Sugarhill Boutique. Its called the Hope Stamp print midi dress and really reminded me of all the beautiful Mediterranean prints I'm a little bit obsessed with at the moment! Not only do I love the pattern on this dress but the shape is really flattering on me even if I am only short! Sugarhill are now stocking sizes 6's so I was keen to see what the fit was like, and it was perfect! I teamed mine with my wrap headband to create a retro feel, and obviously flats as I was walking around gardens, but a pair of pointed heels would make this a perfect dress for popping a bar on a warm summer night!
What do you think to this style of dress? Is it something you would wear?
Much Love

#PawHumour: The many faces of Jacob

As you all know I am a little crazy about the little man I have in my life. His short legs, his massive ears, his baggy skin, the salvia all over me and every single thing I own. No I'm not talking about Nathan, I'm talking about Jacob my 4 year old Basset Hound. I love Jacob more then anything in the world, it is like having a toddler, hes nothing like a dog. This is why I make sure to have Jacob insured, because you never know what could happen, and well Jacob trips over his ears ALL the time and often ends up with a split lip. RSPCA pet insurance offers great deals for insuring your furry friends, you can even insure dogs and cats on the same policy. Thats not even the best part, your policy means £20 will go directly to RSPCA. RSPCA do an amazing job, I know from personal experience with our rescue dog Bessy, and they are completely funded by donations only, so not only will you be keeping your pet safe, but you will also be helping those furry creatures who have been neglected. To celebrate this, I thought I would share a little bit of #Pawhumour, presenting the many faces of Jacob!

"Hi I'm Jacob, nice to meet you"  face
Its too windy face
 Saturday morning face
 "Im sleeping, go away" face
 WAAAAAAAAASSSUUUPPPPPPPP - face
 I is so sad face
 ADVENTURE! - face
 so what if I ripped everything up when you was at work face.

"And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate. Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off. Shake it off" - face
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate
Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off. Shake it off

 
SQUIRREL! - face

Basset hounds have a lot of faces, thats all I can say, which is your favourite? And dont forget to check out MORE TH>N insurance and do a good deed whilst looking after your furry friend! 
 Much Love
Natasha & Jacob x

DIY: mediterranean "tiled" Dressing table and a look at my new room decor


 It has been a while since I did a DIY which makes me very sad, but I have come back with the BEST DIY that I have ever done on my blog. One night whilst on pinterest, I came across a bohemian/ meditterranean/ morrocan inspired bedroom and that was it,  I was in love so the next day I painted my room white, got a light coloured carpet, and completely re bought all my accessories and bedding.
All I needed was a more authentic feature in  my room, like a tiled dressing table!
My dressing table before I tiled it. 


 
Did you really think I tiled? I mean I know I can do a lot of DIY projects but tiling is another level. So here comes my secret, vinyl tile decals from Snazzy Decals. These amazing tile decals are perfect for sticking over existing tiles in kitchens and bathrooms as well as using on staircases, or in my case to jazz up a dressing table and mirror. It means you dont have to re-tile and can get a beautiful new look, and save a fortune, as tiles, even wallpaper in this type of design, are normally designer ranges or vintage and the prices are really really high.

 The vinyl tiles peel away from the backing easily
 
    Line the tile decal up as to where you would like it with only a little bit of the backing peeled back
 
 Once you have it where you would like it, pull the rest of the back off and smooth the decal down

 And it is that easy!

 I have a glass top on my dresser but the decals are actually waterproof, scratch resistant and protected from fading in the sun. I also put the tiles around my mirror which hid unsightly holes as well as making the space look even more amazing.

 Bright and bold accessories to contrast with the blue and white.
 
 Beautiful tiled bedding to match




 I am so pleased with how my dressing table looks, the lovely lady who runs Snazzy Decals Pauline, is so helpful, she helps with choosing a design and making them to custom fit. She also offers an amazing service were you can send a photo, for example a photo of the area at the back of your kitchen sink, and she will mock up an image so you can see how it will look before you buy. I highly recommend these vinyl tile decals for an easy update to your home. 
What do you think to the new look in my room, and these tile decals?
Much Love
Natasha
