Le Début

The pressure of the first blog post is such a mighty thing to overcome. So I'm going to keep it quick and simple, that way next post there's no pressure, I can just start.

I'm really excited about this new blog, I have big ideas and dreams for it and so many new things I want to try and share with you.

You can find out more about me and my aims for this blog by clicking the "about me" tab on the right there.

A basic run down of what you'll find on Ookie La La is...


I regularly trawl opp shops and garages sales hunting for gorgeous vintage items. So regularly that I now sell some of my vintage treasures through my Facebook page La La Love Vintage, you can find out more by clicking the tab to your right.


Being creative is a huge part of who I am, and what gives me joy. I love trying new things and experimenting. What I make isn't always perfect (which I can get way to focused on), but I love the journey. I love getting inspiration from other creative souls out there and then making it my own. I love that the internet has created a base were like minded souls can share their creativity, skills and lives.


I married my college sweetheart at 20. It shouldn't have worked out, but I married an amazing man and I love the life we have made together. Last year we added a little bubba to our family, and I guess we're still getting used to the idea. I know that I am still trying to re define, or just re find myself, since becoming mum. Its damn hard work, and impacts every area of my life, even the clothes I buy and wear - all clothing needs to have quick booby access. I think stores need to get men to design nursing clothes- I have a feeling they'd knock it out of the park! So I couldn't possibly blog with out sharing the one thing that influences my life most.

<My $0 Craft Room series>

No cash, but I want a space that is all mine, and encompasses everything I need to be creative. $0 Craft Room seems like the perfect solution. All that I need to start is to move!! More info can be found when you click the tab on the right, or you can follow my $0 Craft Room Pinterest board, by clicking the "P" - top right.

And what ever other little things happen to pop into my head, or life!! I hope you enjoy this space with me xx

Phew, so glad pressures off for my second post... 

I need to do a shout out to one of my fav blogs Sweet Verbena. Her posts on designing your own blog and getting started were so helpful and inspiring. You can find her post on designing your own blog here and getting started here.
