Well, hello there and welcome! I’m J.P.

Hi! I’m J.P and I’m so pleased you’ve popped by! Thanks for finding your way to my site. If you love interiors and gardens and a good old natter then you’ve come to the right place.
My forte is bringing the outside in. Using nature to beautify our homes is one of the easiest ways to add a new look to a space.
I’m a blogger, writer, creator and stylist. I publish a new blog post every Sunday and I write about everything from kitchen inspiration to garden planning to tips on how to find your mojo!
I have my own little shop, which you can find under “Shop My Style” at the top of my homepage in the menu bar. There, you’ll be able to find a lot of the things I’ve bought to style my home and garden.
If you’d like to work with me then please go to the “Contact Me” section above for more details.
You can find me getting up to all kinds of shenanigans on Instagram @jpslifeandloves - I love seasonal styling and I’m known for my extravagant displays. We’ve recently moved house and are about to start not one, but two renovation projects on the South coast of the U.K.
I’m married to the lovely Mr C and we have a sweet cairn terrier called Missy. Hope you stick around for a while, it would be great to get to know you. Jp xx
