Hi! I am Julia

Welcome to my Blog about Lifestyle and Travel, Health, and Home Decor.

I love being home where I live with my 2 teenagers in the Cotswolds. However, I love to travel and plan trips in the UK and further afield. I’m a regular visitor to Cornwall. I love home decoration and plan my home around my travels where I have picked up beautiful paintings, furniture, and textiles. I have to budget being a single Mum which has helped me become savvier. Here I share my Single Mum’s tips on planning travel, home decoration, money-saving, time management, and lots more. In the past, I have lived in London (18 years and Dubai (2 years). Look out for some home decor and more travel tips. Soon we travel to Cornwall and then Summer to Greece.
