Hello Victoria – I’m Amy! As a Canadian living just outside of London, England, this blog is my way of trying to keep in touch with friends and family back home in Victoria, BC. When I’m not working, you can find me
sleeping baking, attempting DIY projects, or otherwise trying to make this teeny tiny English flat a home.
Living in the UK can be very expensive, and I think many people can relate to my struggle of creating a stylish home with little money. It’ll be a slow process, requiring lots of DIY, but I’m planning on documenting it here in case there are others in a similar position. And like many others in this maker culture, it’s not just decorating that I enjoy doing myself. Expect to find all sorts of handmade posts here including recipes, crafts, and other DIY projects, as well as snippets of my life here in the UK.
While I’m usually a bit of a homebody, greater London beckons with all of its restaurants, markets, shops, and gardens. I’m hoping to make great use of my newfound home here in England, and experience all that it has to offer.
So hello to you, and Hello Victoria!
