About Me

Welcome to making it as mum.

A little bit about me.... Hi, I'm Catherine Mum to the gorgeous Elliott and married to the equally gorgeous Matthew. Ever since I can remember I have loved making and styling things. I'm a serial house mover, I love interiors so much that when the house is finished I'm itching to move on to the next. I love to source bargains and find new uses for items. I like to have fun with my family, save money and time where i can. Thats really what this blogs all

 I had an eventful first few years of motherhood and muddling my way through often hanging on by a thread. I thought i would share my journey, how even in tough times with less money and not enough hours in the day it is still possible to have fun, save money,find time and live stylishly.

Before i became a mum i spent my days in retail management and visual merchandising and along the way studied interior design.

I think i lost my sanity when i was pregnant as i thought it was a good idea to buy a shop! Never never never make any major changes while pregnant as becoming a mum is literally life changing in itself.
 I have learned more in the last few years than i learned in the rest of my life put together. Its been a roller coaster but i feel very blessed to be where i am now. I would not change a thing, I have a lovely little boy who brings me joy and he challenges me to learn more everyday.

I hope you will enjoy my blog and join me as i find creative ways to make it as a mum. How to survive stylishly even with less income, getting the work life balance right and much much more. My creative side is still alive even since losing a few cells in my pregnancy and i hope to share tips and advice for design, creating with kids and lots lots more.

I look forward to getting to know you x
