Since we can’t do a built in shampoo niche in the shower, I’ve looked into some off the shelf options that don’t look like your typical shower caddy that we can just buy and mount on the wall. Fortunately, I found some options I’m happy with! Read about them on the blog. Link to post in profile. 🛁
Eat your heart out @hgtv ... we have our own version of @scott_mcgillivray @make_it_right and @bryanbaeumler ... mind you, this shot resulted in 2 cuts, one bruised toe, 30 bloopers and many of those deck boards are crooked or not sufficiently screwed in 😆 @adriantrott
Who ever thought door shopping was so stressful?!
The material, finish, style, glass, size. So many things to take in to account and don’t even get me started on door handles!
Eventually after many trips to b&q and bunnings we decided on these oak veneer 4 panel doors. Just for downstairs with frosted glass panels in the living room to allow more natural light to come through. As we have low ceilings and a naturally dark living room.
We are leaving the doors their natural colour (just finishing with oil) and having the skirting boards and architraves white.
The last picture is what the downstairs doors looked like previously. Can not explain how much brighter our new doors make the space look.
Travel buds✌🏼 Anybody in Reno? I love the #vanlife because you can change your mind at any minute. We decided to head to Reno instead of Vegas cause why not? Jesse’s birthday is tomorrow- can anyone tell us anything about Reno? What’s the parking like? What’s there to do?? #reno#renonevada#blackbettyorbust#renohoopers

I said I would talk more about what was in that display case so...This is a Purple Heart. It’s given to US service men or women who are wounded or killed in action. I was given this for receiving a Trumatic brain injury due a road side bomb. At the time I received this award for my injury I was ashamed to be given it 8 months later. When the explosion happened I thought I was fine. They medically evacuated me anyways. I was given the chance to return home from Afghanistan 5 months early (I’ve never told anyone that) but I chose otherwise. I didn’t understand there was something wrong with me at the time. I thought I was being brave. I thought the headaches would go away. I thought the feeling of being anxious and tired was just going to stop. I thought the stutter I started developing was something comical. I had never had anxiety or depression before and I didn’t understand what was happening. I just didn’t want to look like a coward. I started seeing things that weren’t there for the next two years. That’s when I knew there was actually something wrong. I’ve never told anybody I served with about this. I would still never want to speak to them directly about it either. That’s because some of them were were given purple hearts for wounds that were physical and self evident. I continued to hate this award I was given, and take the anti depressants and anti psychotics I was also given because of it. Whenever I would talk to my friends from the military back then I would lie and tell them I was fine. That’s because their opinion still mattered to me. I didn’t want them to say I was being weak. That’s why I’ve never spoken a word about this for eight years. But you guys have allowed me a platform and I’d better use it while I can. Just the facts here, nothing more. Nothing less
Where do I even start?
Firstly it feels very surreal after months and months of scrolling home accounts on insta, saving inspiration pictures and getting ideas to being 5 weeks into our renovation.
I am actually a home owner? How did that happen and how has my boyfriend agreed to living with me 🤷♀️😂 This was our set up last night, eating tea (yes I am northern 😂) on the floor because where else can you eat a spag bol when your whole downstairs is covered in dust sheets? 😫
Looking forward to documenting the good, bad and damn right ugly of our home renovation. Will all be worth it in the end 🙏
