AT HOME WITH THE BAYFORDS

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. You may know me because of my main blog Joanna Victoria where I share Parenting and Lifestyle posts.

I've always been a bit of a homebody, don't get me wrong I do love getting out and about but there really is no place like home. I love home decor and collecting pieces to have on display in our home. I also have a thing for looking at home related content on Pinterest and Instagram. 


I thought since I love these things so much why not share them with you all. So this new blog  will be focusing on home related content. There will be posts sharing tips and ideas on home living, inspiration, home hacks, gardening, hauls,  and maybe the odd cleaning and organisation.





We have been living in our current home since early 2019 after deciding to relocate from Bedfordshire to Lincolnshire. We have no regrets relocating not only do we love the little town we live in but it gave us the chance to get on the property ladder. 

IKEA is one of our favourite places to get furniture but we do love a second hand bargain too. I love picking up decor pieces from wherever I spot anything that catches my eye. My favourite homeware shops though are B&M, Wilko, Poundland and Next. I love supporting little businesses too especially as you can get unique and personalised items. I love flowers and we always have some in our home even if it's just a vase of faux ones,they always make me smile.

6 LESSONS LEARNT SO FAR OF HOME OWNERSHIP

We have been home owners now for almost 2 and a half years. In that time I must admit we have learnt quite a bit. To be able to afford our own home we had to relocate from Bedfordshire to Lincolnshire and we have no regrets as we love the area and we are a train ride away from bigger cities such as Lincoln, Leeds and Sheffield.
