Three years ago, we sold our family home in Berkshire and moved to our dream Georgian house in York. We'd moved nine times in 14 years and for me and my love of period homes, it was decor heaven. After years of being totally obsessed with thrift and charity shop bargain hunting, I started using Instagram for room styling shots and got so many, where did you get that? requests that I thought I would start my own blog. With a background in fashion retail and estate agency, I set up my first online shop with Not On The High Street eight years ago and now have a vintage homewares store on Etsy with my friend, Karen. I'm married to Joe and have three children and a Lhasa Apso named Buddy, all of whom are very badly trained :) I am passionate about vintage and retro styling and promotion of local, small businesses as well as how to scour the High Street for the perfect look at a minimum cost! I offer a home and event styling service, both e decor and one to one - please click the Be Styled button on my website for details.
