My name is Laurie and I’m a shopaholic. There, I’ve said it! I’m completely, unashamedly, 100 per cent addicted to interiors and homeware, and I’ve set up this site to bring you the very best buys on the high street. If you love to spend, but want to spend SMART and you’re a sucker for the latest trend, then this is the place to browse – plus, you won’t have to wait six months to be able to buy what you see (there’s nothing worse, right?) as these items are already, or close to being, on the shelves so you can happily snap them up. The Fix is my own little platform to tell you about new brands and affordable cool buys, with a little bit of travel and lifestyle inspiration thrown into the mix. What you won’t find, however, is anything too luxe – I’m more of a bargain hunter and I believe you don’t need to have a load of cash to have a stylish home – just a dash of good taste.
So, a little about me… I’ve worked for a whole heap of interiors magazines over the years, including Style at Home where I was the Homes Editor and compiled our monthly shopping features. I’ve been lucky enough to style and write about homes up and down the country, appear in videos, host styling and creative workshops and guest blog for various brands – it’s safe to say I know interiors inside and out. What’s also true is that my heart belongs to the shopping world… I just can’t resist that latest buy and love a good trawl to find a bargain! The great part about my job is that I get to see new collections way ahead of time and hear about trends in advance, which means that everything on this blog is set to give you a bit of an edge – to keep you ahead of the game so to speak.
I also love to chat, so feel free to drop me a line and let me know I’m not the only one out there with a full-scale IOAA (Interiors Obsession and Addiction). You can also check out my Instagram account for more of what I’m up to day to day – mostly you’ll see that when I’m not writing or styling home and interior features, I’m shopping away… eager to get that high from a new purchase. So, ladies (and gents), pull up a pew, grab a drink and prepare to get your fix…
