  • Hi, everyone, welcome back to my channel.

  • I haven't really been blogging for a couple of days.

  • I just took some time off on DDE.

  • Have just been kind of chilling out, getting a lot of stuff done.

  • But because now I'm pretty much off until the new year, I'm not really doing any work or working on any campaigns.

  • There might be stuff that's been, like, already done and just scheduled, but it's pretty much chilled.

  • Now.

  • What I say chilled.

  • I'm finally taking some time off, which is not something that I often do on.

  • I'm very excited about it, but so I haven't really been forgetting just because it's involved a lot of this.

  • A lot of new makeup days on a lot off admin.

  • So I thought today's video I would do something that I haven't actually like done before.

  • I've never really shown you Feli around my house on Dhe.

  • After all of the talk in my last long about my house, I thought I would finally just give you a little block style riel time tour of my house.

  • Now this is the house that Ali and I bought before I was working as a blogger.

  • So he was working as a magician.

  • I was working at head office for a fashion brand on.

  • Um, this was our first home ever.

  • So it was really, really exciting.

  • And like I said in my last video, we love this place and loved it at the time so much It was like our own little place on dhe.

  • It was just so amazing to have our own home.

  • We were so, so excited.

  • Obviously.

  • Now we are moving on from here.

  • But I always said that when we sold our house, I would give you guys a tall So that's what I'm gonna do today for a first home.

  • This house has just been perfect.

  • We have absolutely loved it to within an inch of its life.

  • We completely put our own stamp on it.

  • Andi made it.

  • Ah, home that we're so proud of.

  • And even though it is quite small when people come round that always so complimentary and like Oh, my God, this is such a beautiful home that you have, and I'm like, Oh, that's so noise.

  • So, yeah, I mean, I guess I won't ramble on too much about their and I would just kind of get into showing you the rooms.

  • I guess we should just get on because this is actually quite late on in the day and it's getting quite dark.

  • So I may have to turn on lights like I'm doing at the moment because this is winter in England and there is not much natural light.

  • So let's get into the tour legs playing it.

  • Oh, no.

  • So this is our very cozy hallway.

  • You can't get a lot of people in our hallway, and there is a little bit of shimmying going on when people are coming through the front door.

  • The front door is here on Dhe is actually sort of want to slant to the property as you walk in.

  • There is this unit this is here.

  • When we moved in on dhe, we change.

  • The hand was on it to make it a little bit more presentable.

  • So it's been really useful.

  • So I was really glad that they get back to your shop, all of the shoes in there and not keep too much in this hallway because it's actually not a lot of space here.

  • We've got the lovely fuse board up here on this is where we keep, like, change on dhe bits and bobs like that.

  • Just you know those things you have to console table?

  • What?

  • We wanted to keep this clear.

  • So you just anything that you need to put in in there, So that's great.

  • On top of here, we have a picture of Ali and I at his mom's wedding on.

  • Then we also have a white company winter diffuser on.

  • This is just the little mirrored box that I was telling you about with this open door policy, which I think Claire got me and I haven't actually had a chance to hang it.

  • I think I'm gonna save it for the new house on then this and change that.

  • Ali's obviously left there on these just, um, Net support a umbrellas that we leave there in case we need it.

  • Last minute.

  • This mirror is probably my most favorite thing in the hallway.

  • This mirror is probably about 50 years old, and it was a gift from my dad and my stepmom when we moved in, and I just thought that this was the perfect place for this mirror to go.

  • It makes it feel a lot more spacious in this area on DDE.

  • I just think it's absolutely beautiful cause it's just so like, battered on dhe warn.

  • And I think once upon a time it was like gold, and then it was brown on.

  • Then they painted it.

  • It's like white color on It's all, like, quite roughly done, which I really like.

  • So this is a bit of an antique, but I am.

  • I love it so much.

  • No, definitely becoming with us to the new house, says you come through the front door.

  • Here are the stairs up to the second level on Dhe thio.

  • Your left is the lounge on.

  • I really liked having a separate hallway and lounge.

  • I just love having the whole way so that there's that separation between your actual living space on DDE, like where people come in.

  • So I really liked that.

  • I know that some places have the stairs in the actual living room.

  • This'll just worked really well for us.

  • These are sofas when we first moved into his property.

  • If you're an O G follower, you might remember that we had these all four black leather sofas.

  • I found them for £300 in a closing down sale over like sofa company Onda.

  • We lived with them for so long.

  • They were the most uncomfortable sofas I've ever had in my life.

  • So we really felt like we were splashing out when we got the sofas.

  • We got them from D.

  • F s.

  • And when they arrived, we were just so happy.

  • And they are very, very comfortable there.

  • Very sort of like squishy, and you just kind of flop into them.

  • And it's quite nice.

  • We got a three seater, I believe that's a three seater.

  • And then we got this kind of like snuggle er so two people can sit on this, but it's quite cozy, so it's usually a couple that we have Sit on this, then This is our coffee tables that we chose.

  • These are only £40 from the range on.

  • We got two of them.

  • There is one here and also one over here.

  • Please ignore the box.

  • I get deliveries all the time on this one.

  • We have a dip teak, mimosa, candle.

  • And then we have this lamp, which is from done.

  • L'm on dhe.

  • This lamp cost me like £80 when I bought it, I felt sick.

  • I literally felt like I had never spent that much on a lamp, but and it's actually been destroyed by Lumi.

  • She used to knock it over for some reason.

  • So it's actually on its last legs, and it's a bit wonky now.

  • But we just love it so much, and we feel like it really finished off this area of our living room really nicely.

  • I'm gonna turn some lights on because it is getting quite dark.

  • Yeah, that's much better on this table.

  • We have a Joe Malone candle.

  • This one is green tomato leaf Onda, also a lemur lip balm, which I believe is Ali's that he stole on these flowers you would have seen in one of my own boxing videos recently.

  • These are from varies in gray.

  • I will link it down below, but I think if you contact them, they can make you out Bunches of faux flowers that just look absolutely beautiful.

  • And also this is from Berries and great as well.

  • On this sofa, we have the cushions that came with the sofa.

  • We also have some cushions from Laura Ashley, which I love on then this funny little basket that the cats rub themselves up against.

  • They absolutely love it.

  • I think it was a It came holdings and products on.

  • It just worked really well in our living room.

  • People always ask about it, and it's actually a little bit grubby now because the cats always rub themselves on it.

  • But, yeah, it just kind of finishes off the sofa on.

  • Then you will notice a running theme.

  • There are lots of blankets over the sofas and over any chairs I have because I always need a blanket.

  • So probably my least favorite thing in this room is the TV unit on Dhe.

  • It's Mike here.

  • I just don't love it all.

  • I'm not a fan of, like your style furniture from being perfectly honest, but you will notice that there is a lot of it in this house at the moment because it's so affordable, and we really needed a lot of storage when we moved in.

  • So it worked really well, but I just Yeah, I want something a little bit nicer on top of here.

  • We have a both sound system, and then we also have a mini one, which we move around the house.

  • To be honest, this will definitely be coming to the new house with us.

  • Because this is a very sort of powerful sound system that's way too powerful for a mid terraced house.

  • Which is what this is.

  • So yeah, we'll be taking that.

  • And then this will probably go in one of our offices.

  • We have another Jo Malone candle here, which is the incense and embers.

  • I sell this off, Ali, and I love it on more candles.

  • You will notice that I have candles on every single surface that I could get a candle on because I love love love candles on.

  • Then these are just some flow flowers that I picked up ages ago.

  • They are nowhere near as good as the Berries and gray ones.

  • I've just popped it in a little tub.

  • That mess on the floor gave me.

  • This man is following me absolutely everywhere.

  • Oh, also, our rug is from done.

  • L'm as well.

  • This kind of gave me all of the Laura Ashley vibes when I saw it.

  • So I picked up in there just like the subtle patterns I'm no huge color person, although I am gonna try and inject some color into a new house.

  • But don't hold your breath way also have this print which I believe is from dis Ennio.

  • But don't hold me to that.

  • We put it up in here because Paris is where I always remember that the first time I felt like I fell in love with Ali.

  • So we popped that up on the wall.

  • But we haven't really done a lot with the walls here because as soon as we finish off decorating the place, we realized that it was probably time for us to start thinking about moving.

  • So we didn't really put any more art on the wall.

  • Now this room was so cramped.

  • When we moved in, we put a door on that cupboard under there.

  • It had an awful plastic sliding door that we got rid off and put that door on.

  • It had our techs ceilings and just a central lamb weeper in these spotlights here, and we put them throughout the house and we absolutely love those as well.

  • We also painted the entire house white.

  • It was very much a sort of magnolia color when we moved in on straight the way, we wanted to make it feel a lot more spacious.

  • So he painted the whole place, and it really didn't make this place feel so much bigger.

  • Then we come to our Christmas tree.

  • This street is from John Lewis on Dhe.

  • It's brilliant.

  • You just literally it just flat packs and then you just pop it over the top of Rod and it just kind of falls down.

  • It's great.

  • You would have seen me put this up in one of my block.

  • Videos are linked down below on Dhe.

  • Yeah, love it.

  • We've decorated it with all white bits and bobs and some white little is it point setter.

  • Is that what you call them?

  • That's what you call them on Dwight.

  • Four balls and silver bubbles with a touch of nude on dhe deep red.

  • And then we've already started receiving some Christmas cards on dhe, some getting married cards with.

  • We're not married yet, but yeah, it's obviously not far off now, so we're very excited.

  • It's just lovely to receive so many lovely cards up.

  • He's also from Clinic Clinic sent us a huge, huge gift on these were some of the things that were in this.

  • We haven't followed those away yet into our cosmetics discovered over here.

  • This is literally just are under stairs covered.

  • Ali kind of uses this as an extension of his wardrobe.

  • We also keep one of our Dyson Hoover is in here.

  • It did have a light, but I think the light may have now gone.

  • Hey, keeps a lot of his coats in here on.

  • We keep like cat litter and food on DDE.

  • You can't really see much, but that is basically an extension of Ali's wardrobe from the lounge we move into the kitchen on.

  • This is one of the biggest changes to this property.

  • We redid the what we did do quite a lot to this.

  • It was all oak.

  • On the floors throughout the house are OCHA's.

  • Well, it was finished quite a high standard this house.

  • But unfortunately, Ali took the washing machine apart once and we had a leak, so we didn't actually intend to do up this room.

  • But when we had a leak under the floor, we have to rip the entire kitchen out to find out what it wascause initially we didn't know on.

  • We decided to paint all of the cupboards white.

  • We put on a new work top because there was quite a large crack down the oak work top that we did have.

  • We did all new tiling, and we actually put in a proper home unit unfolding over the cats.

  • We actually put in a proper hab unit because this was just a standalone cooker.

  • Initially on, we decided that we wanted to put in a whole new hab.

  • Well, hello.

  • We also put in a new floor which I absolutely love.

  • This floor.

  • Andi, I just think we've made this room feels so much more spacious than it.

  • Waas.

  • It is obviously a small kitchen.

  • But we wanted to do something really nice and we replaced all of, like, the the handle.

  • So he did.

  • The cup handles on also these gorgeous knobs we put in a huge new sink.

  • This was like my pride, Andi Joy.

  • When I put this in, I love, love, love this thing so much.

  • Love the spout on.

  • I just think it gives this kitchen much, so it gives it more expensive feel, even though we really didn't spend a lot of money on it all again.

  • More candles and then you could see into our garden Looks like, But I'm not really gonna take you out there because it's too cold.

  • Then I have some cookbooks, some from Neal's yard, a lot of the Madeline Shore cookbooks on also the kinfolk table.

  • I've got Nutribullet, and this is something that I think it's supposed to be like a water dispenser.

  • But I generally uses is a gin dispenser because so about that jin life, We've also got our smeg toaster.

  • I went for the chrome one, and I just love this so, so much.

  • I love this.

  • And we also got the matching Kester, which you you may have seen in my house or I'm out of breath.

  • Just gonna get a new battery.

  • You might remember this.

  • I did a hole with this and there's something about it just paused.

  • I'm really sorry.

  • This guy is just following me around and jumping around everywhere.

  • There's something about the way that this cattle pause that it just It's really nice to board.

  • So I really, really rate this.

  • We have in this corner a chopping board.

  • This is a marble chuck.

  • Well, actually, I think it's a cheese board, but we just put on the side like it's the chopping board.

  • This is from next home on Dhe.

  • Then we also have another candle.

  • This is the Red Roses Jo Malone candle, which I love.

  • It's a champagne bucket.

  • This is also from Berries and gray, and all of these flowers are also Berries and gray on.

  • This was a gift when Ali and I got engaged.

  • I absolutely love this.

  • It fills this corner so nicely on inject a little bit of color into this room as well.

  • I have no idea what this is.

  • It just appeared here one day.

  • So I'm guessing it's some kind of radio that Ali got given on.

  • He's just popped out on the side.

  • I also have this.
