I'm a simple girl with a complicated life. Home is where I lay my hat and right now it's a stone villa in France which I'm renovating as I go. I am the mama of 5 and raising them on my own for now as my husband is posted in Africa. I adore scouring the fleamarkets for treasures and have vowed never to buy a new pieces of furniture again. The French style shabby chic really does it for me. I like nothing better than a bacon sandwich with a cup of tea, sipping cappucino with a friend and learning something new everyday. I'm an aspiring blogger at www.liveloveconquer.com and interior designer wannabe!
