A place to call my own

Now that I'm on my own, I'm trying to focus on the positives that lay ahead. Dwelling on how terrible this situation is doesn't help me, I need to know that one day I'll have a lovely home, a greyhound and maybe someone who loves me. At the moment the most attainable are a lovely home and a greyhound. 

I'm not going to be in a position to buy my own place for a year so I'm back with my parents until then, I'll be saving like crazy as well as buying myself little treats after each pay day. Now that I don't have a home to run I have plenty of free time on my hands (which is a bit of a fib this week as tonight is my only night off - my social life has gone crazy lately) to think about where I want to live and what I want from a home. I've identified two places in the city that I'd consider moving to, both close to the city centre so I can get home quickly after a night out or I can cycle to work in the morning.

From this I've started to build a picture in my head of how I want my home to look.

All of these images are on my pinterest boards, over the next year I can see me pinning a heck of a lot of ideas I like so I can eventually make my cosy retreat.

If you're on pinterest leave me your name so I can start following you!


You may have noticed my new url, which I guess reveals my new blog name. The name my blog currently has is really not fitting anymore. The name of my blog comes from the shoes I wore at my wedding (that's them in the header) and that my ex is from Kansas. Peppermint and Pearls has a meaning to me which I'll detail in the future when it undergoes a complete revamp, I'm currently talking to the very talented Tilly from Love, Tilly about my blog design so hopefully I'll be able to bring you a refreshed blog soon. In the meantime I'd like to say thank you to those of you who have commented on my last post. I've been astounded by how many hits that post had, the only one that has beaten it is my review of Hang Fire BBQ. I've really come to realise that there are some genuinely lovely people out there.

Onwards and upwards!
