Getting to know me…
Firstly, huge apologies for the lack of blog posts over the past few months. It has been some of the busiest months ever and life took over but I am pleased to say I no longer have tonsils and I am now engaged! So all positive!
When I started this blog I wasn’t sure if you lovely readers would be interested in the person behind edit by eleven. However, the more I speak to you through Instagram and the comments on the blog posts it seems some of you want to know more about me so here goes…
I have always had a passion for interiors but I fell in love with them when I bought my first home, 11a. Suddenly, I stopped spending all my money on clothes and started spending what I had (which wasn’t much after I’d bought a house on my own) on things to make it a home. I spent all my weekends searching for things for the flat and changing things around. Until I met fellow interiors bloggers and lovers I thought I was the only strange person who spent hours moving things around the flat and taking photos. It’s ok though, there are loads of people just like me. From then on I knew interiors was my one true love (sorry Jack!)
My dream home
An old stone house in Bath, where I could fulfil my dream of a kitchen island and have lots of rooms to continuously decorate and faff in.
My dream meal
Hmmm this is the toughest question. I love food and when I say I love food I’m not exaggerating. I plan my day around my food. I love winter food and it depends on what I fancy at the time as to what would be my dream meal but it most definitely would include a lot of cheese, pasta and red wine.
My favourite outfit
Again depends on the weather but at the moment it has to be jeans, and a funnel neck jumper, my shiny silver boots and a cosy scarf.
I couldn’t live without
Cleaning products. Oh and maybe candles
I wish I was good at
Gardening, running, plastering (as I could save a lot of money and also make a lot it seems!)
