Today I spent some time talking to my dear friend Michele @thevillageshopfairtrade and friends if you don't follow her you really should. She is one of the kindest, sweetest, most compassionate, and wisest friends I have ever had. When the enemy gets into my head which he often does, she always knows what to say to redirect my thoughts and remind me of all the good of I have done here on Instagram. Then later on today, I was engaging on my post, and so many of you my friends validated what she had said in your comments. I'm just so humbled by how God used you all to lift me up today, to remind me of what truly matters in life. No one will remember you because of your material possessions, or your beauty. They will remember your character, and how you made them feel. This scripture says it so well. Let's focus on our own good qualities, and how we are making a difference. Take pride in who you are, and what you have done for the glory of God. In all honesty does anything else truly matter? Sure we may wish we had what others appear to have but in reality pictures lie. You may feel insecure about being in front of the camera, and wish you looked like someone else, but I guarantee that they are busy being critical about themselves too. By being critical of yourself you are being critical of God's creation. God created us all perfect in his eyes, and we are all worthy. No one in this life is without challenges of their own. Everyone is busy putting on a ficaud. Not much of what you see on here is REAL. They are all just pretty edited pictures and filtered videos. I am so impressed by Erin @cottonstem for saying NO MORE filters. That takes a lot of guts when everyone else on here is using them. We need to stop comparing ourselves to others and focusing on the amazing people that we are ourselves. .

The plans / and the current state of our main living space. We have the couch but that’s pretty much it. It needs everything doing to it and it’s all still pretty up in the air. 🤷🏼♀️
I know how I want it to feel... but not the specifics of how I want it to look yet. Does that make sense? •
Outdoor light is finally up!💡🌳
We spent the day putting up the outdoor light, kitchen lights, bathroom light and putting the toilet holders up along with the washing line, which I will show you when it’s light out! Busy day!
Hope you have had a lovely day!
Show Home Post 🏡
Today we went to another Bellway development about 25 minutes from ours.
Although we were going to see the same house, the show home was the same layout as the plot we’ve reserved, whereas the show home on our development is the opposite way around.
Lewis was like 🙄 what’s the point?! But I think it was really good to get a view for how the house will feel and flow and I love getting extra inspiration for decor too!
Here’s the master bedroom I just LOVE it!
18.1.20 - Little house stalk today 👀
We tried to wait until next weekend to have a look but we were passing so why not come and see how our little home is coming along🙈🤩
Just a little bit done since my last update.. still a couple of month to go until completion and we just want to be in it now!! January seems to be taking forever🥱
Evening you gorgeous little creatures 😘
How’s your day been? I’ve done nothing but paint all day as I want to get the panelling finished in the bedroom & the weekend is the one time I see daylight these days! I’ve done one coat & I’m already questioning the colour 🤣 i think I can categorically say picking paint colours ain’t my thing 🙈 I’ll wait until the daylight returns in the morning to reconsider 🤔
In the meantime here’s a pic of my shelves with my gorgeous light on and a few new additions. Got my @bearburners candle delivered today & it looks perfect here 😍 & smells insaaane! Totally recommend these Picasso candles & if you wanna bag yourself one use my code SEAVIEW10 & thank me later 😜😘

• Our story so far •
First of all, thank you for taking a look at our page.
We wanted to document our New Build journey and what better way to do it than to put it on insta 😉 We’re a family of three and we’ve been living in what is becoming an extremely built-up and hectic area. Seeing that we both actually had experience growing up in the countryside (Norfolk, UK & Loire Valley, France), we would now like the same for our 2 year old daughter. After having a particularly tough 2019, we felt a change was needed in order to #liveourbestlife and thanks to a casual chat with our good friends on a day out, we felt inspired. After a little web search we found that @bloorhomes were building a new development in the area. Fast forward a few weeks, having visited the show homes and falling for the Berrington, we sold our house the following week and are now in the process of exchanging contracts of said sale and dreaming of our new life in the countryside. 🌿
Happy Saturday... how’s your day been? Today I joined #slimmingworld again.. have you ever been a member? I thought I’d share with you Daisy’s side of the room again because I just think it’s so cute.
I was kindly #gifted this super cute elephant (door stop) from @thecheshiregiftcompany you can use code ‘HOME10’ site wide for 10% off

First look at the family bathroom! I was super nervous about seeing it because we chose some very large grey tiles and tiled floor to ceiling so it was going to be bold! I do really love it but it needs styling to bring it all together. We have plans to eventually swap out the single basin with a floating double vanity. I’m going to add a lot of warm wood tones to keep that Scandi/Nordic look. Plus, plenty of greenery of course! •
[June 19, 2019]
Finally the top floor framing was underway giving a sense of height and scale to the home. I was please by the way the bedroom windows framed the mountain views - worked out better than we had hoped. While the exterior sheathing and chimney was being worked on we decided to make a minor adjustment to the floorplan to increase the closet - in doing so we adjusted the beams to add another walk-in-closet to the layout! It was an easy approval from the city with a minor amendment to the struct/arch drawings. We had a lot of shear walls in the house due to the open-concept layout and until trusses and shear walls were competed there were lots of cross-bracing added for support. While this was going on on-site we were out looking at plumbing fixtures and electrical lighting.
Approach with caution, I’ve had the busiest day at work known to man, I mean I’ve not had time to eat lunch which makes me hangry. 🚫
Only just sitting down for something to eat now as I’ve 🚖 my husband off to his pals for drinks, so here is little old me eating oven chicken and microwave rice happy bloody weekend 😂
A different angle to our kitchen...I wish it looked this clean and shiny all the time! Never gonna happen with a child, husband and dog 😂
I’m so glad it’s Friday, it’s been a long week!
Can you spot the pup? 🤣
New mirror 🙌🏼💕 We’ve had a little change up in the living room adding a new floor lamp from @pagazzilighting (which we won in their competition) and mirror from @williamwoodmirrors I’m so pleased with how it looks.. it’s made the space feel bigger and brighter!
Hope you all have a fab weekend 🙌🏼🥰
Happy Friday my angels! 🖤
There’s not a great deal to report here today. No definite decisions made on the living room paint yet. I’ve potentially changed my mind on the living room lighting too 🙈 but let’s not mention that to Adam just yet.
In other news, my “TV unit” (it’s actually a sideboard) is coming on Monday and I’m more excited for this than I was Christmas Day! One, because it’s a SERIOUS beauty. And Two, because it’s gonna hide allllll of Eliza’s toys so my living room doesn’t resemble an elves workshop.
So, here we have a totally unrelated photo of half of the bed (my OCD couldn’t cope with only having one of my globe lamps 💔 rip!)
Cheers to the weekend my darlings! 🖤
