Bar+Block Newcastle

Thursday night ended up being date night for Mr Lisle and I as we headed to the new steakhouse on the block – Bar+Block (see what I did there?). We don’t get the opportunity to go out as a two that often so we were really excited to try some food and drinks at this new restaurant located on Newgate Street.

He showed us to our…

So I thought it would be a good starting point to get myself back into the swing of it by reflecting on the year that has been. It’s crazy to think that tomorrow we will enter not only a new year but a new decade and to look back over the past 10 years it’s amazing to see the things I’ve achieved over that time.

AD Welcome to the Jungle

A Guest Bedroom makeover with Rebel Walls and Oak Furniture Land We’ve pretty much flew through renovating the house; moving from room to room one after another but after a little break I was desperate to do something bold and I had a full guest bedroom to do from scratch! Getting Started – Installing the Wall Mural First step was to install the wall mural. We chose Secret Garden from Rebel Walls; a Swedish company with a huge range of beautiful murals. I wanted to make a big impact as the majority of walls in the house are painted white…
