NEW HOUSE IN THE COUNTRY

New house in the country

If you follow us on social media you’ll know that we did it!! We have packed our bags, waved goodbye to the big smoke and are now living our own type of country bliss in a new house out in Hertfordshire. (See previous posts talking about the whole house buying process here and here.) We are in the last few days of contract shenanigans before we will finally own our own home. The excitement is very, very real people. I won’t reveal too much just yet (I’ll save that for the full house tour!) but the house in question is over…

I'm hiking the Camino Trail

It’s time for my next adventure! (Who doesn’t love a little last minute excitement?!)

This is probably the absolute worst thing that can happen when you’re a solopreneur, working from home and relying on that very quality (as well as your mad skills, of course!) to bring home the bacon, month after month. We don’t…

THE STUDIO BUILD | INSPIRATION

self-build-inspiration

I’m a bit wary of shouting about this too much as we’re still in the process of finalising contracts and whatnot but after a long, longgg search, myself and the other half of Break The Loop are ‘this’ close to buying our first property! If it all goes ahead (everything crossed please, people) the property in question requires a fairly hefty facelift and we’re also planning a studio build, right next door. Anyone who knows me, knows that I’ve been waiting pretty much my whole life to be let loose on a home of my own. One of the main…
