On the air

HI, everyone, This week over on my Youtube I have a Vlog to share with you. I am sharing a behind the scenes of my radio interview with Debbie on 92.5 Phoenix FM. I also popped to the shops after and treated myself to some new Autumn homeware pieces for the house. 

I had such a fab time in the radio studio with Debbie, I had never done anything like it before and I was really nervous because it was live on air! I am used to being able to edit and re taking when it comes to Youtube and Insta stories/Snapchat so the thoughts of slipping up live on air terrified me. Thankfully it went great and Debbie was so easy to chat to and I didn’t feel the time go by. I filmed a little bit behind the scenes to give you a sneak peek. So much goes on behind the scenes that I never realised. It did, however, look really fun and everyone seemed to enjoy their job. I have a recording of the interview in this post if you want to click and have a listen. I was just chatting all about up cycling and interiors and some blogging too. 

 Autumn haul 

I hadn’t been to visit the shops properly in ages! Because I work in retail, the last place I want to be is in the shopping centre on my day off but shopping for homeware is different and I love getting to see what is new, especially when the seasons are changing. I really wanted to get some new pieces that were Autumnal to add to my rooms. 

I visited Next, HomeSense and Heatons. I saw some really pretty stuff and I will definitely get a few more Autumn items and do an Autumn decor tour soon on my Youtube. If you skip to the middle of my Youtube video you can have a look at my haul. I will share a few pics below of what I got. I will also share some links to similar items that I found as I know some of you guys don’t have Heatons or Homesense near you. 

Let me know what your fave piece was from my haul in the comments below and come say Hi, over on my Instagram.

    I am in love with that rose gold pumpkin! I've looked around stores in Southern California, but I've not been able to find something similar. Is there a production name on it somewhere? Thanks in advance!Joy

    I like the pillow quite a bit and would love to see it paired with the other pillow you spoke about. Looking forward to seeing your fall home tour and also want to tell you that you did a really good on your first radio interview…I am positive they will invite you back!
