10 Years

10 years

While it may be several months past April, I don’t think I would be able to live with myself if I didn’t acknowledge 10 years of It’s A Dull Life. Way back in 2009 I started this little old blog of mine, and it has stood the test of time for the last decade. From the mind of an extremely self-conscious 17-year-old, through to the frivolous years of my early twenties and now my happily settled adulthood, this blog has been the place where I have documented it all.

I don’t know if my teen self would be able to believe that I’d still be writing here 10 years later, and yet here we are. I think she would be pleased to know that I am still inspired by a lot of the same things, that my closest friends have stuck by me and that I was blessed enough to meet the most handsome of men, marry him and have a beautiful daughter with him.

Enough of the sap! Please enjoy this playlist I put together of some of the songs that have inspired and fueled many a post on It’s A Dull Life.

Thank-you to anyone who has taken the time to read this, it really does mean so much to me.

4 Easy Ways to Spruce Up a Room

4 Easy Ways to Spruce Up a Room

Having moved 3 times in the last 5 years, one of the things I have found most challenging is knowing how to decorate my new space. Nevermind how much cupboard space I have or how big the laundry is – what colour is the carpet!? Will my furniture go with the style of the building or do I have to buy a whole bunch of new stuff?

December Recap

December

After a busy few months of big changes, December could not have come quickly enough. I generally always look forward to December because I love Christmas. This time around though, December had some different events to look forward to. These included: Jordan coming home from Townsville, our 20-week ultrasound, finishing up in my job and catching up with friends and family we wouldn’t be seeing for a while over the Christmas period.

Pink Roses

Fresh pink roses, an overpriced interiors magazine and some delicate mini cupcakes. This is what the ideal lazy Saturday looks like to me.

Sep/Oct/Nov Recap

pregnancy

If you read this post way back in January, then you will know that during the first couple of months of my pregnancy, I developed an aversion to updating my social media. This subsequently resulted in me having a substantial lack of photos from that time, so I have had to combine my recaps from September, October and November into one big post. Pregnancy huh, it does wild things to you!
