Nöa & Nani Toy Box Review

•Features gifted item• With three young children, it can sometimes feel like we have toys, puzzles, books and games in every corner of the house. As much as having a truly tidy house may be a bit of a pipe dream at the moment, it is nice to have a bit of order to the chaos, and storage solutions which aren’t just practical, but also look nice and fit in...

Summer Garden Party Essentials

•Features gifted items• Summer seems to finally be making an appearance here in the UK, and there is nothing I love better, during the warmer weather, than hosting a laid-back party in our back garden with family and friends. Ever since I bought Ed a barbecue a couple of years ago, we have been official garden party hosts, and I must admit, I love how easy they are for those...

Beautify Makeup & Jewellery Cases

•Features gifted items• I recently decluttered the house, and I was a little shocked to find just how much makeup and jewellery I have managed to accumulate over the past few months. I gave quite a bit away to a friend, but the rest was still taking over my bathroom cabinets and dressing table, and I needed a solution. Luckily, Beautify had recently reached out and offered to send across...

Home Again! Planning A Welcome Home Party

•Contributed Collaborative Post• It seems that in life, we can spend a bit more time away from the people that we love. If someone has been away for a long time, either studying or living abroad, and they are now back home to stay, why shouldn’t you give them the welcome that they deserve? No doubt, their return may be bittersweet. Perhaps they really loved where they were, and they’ve...

How The Self Care Trend is Influencing 2020’s Interior Trends

•Guest Collaborative Post• It is both a blessing and a curse that we’re always connected to the outside world. Whether it’s smartphones we’re addicted to or our wearable fitness tracking devices, our technology-obsessed selves are always switched on. It’s because of this obsession that self-care has become such a big lifestyle trend in 2019. Too many people have been failing to look after themselves, spending too much time with their heads buried...

Freshening Up Our Bathroom and Kitchen

•Features gifted items• We have been on a massive decluttering spree lately, throwing out everything that we no longer need or use. It has felt amazing to clear space, but it has meant that we have noticed the areas of the house that are in need of a little refresh. Our bathroom and kitchen, especially, have started to look a little tired, since we moved in a few years ago....

Looking Into Growing Our Own Fresh Fruit and Veg

•Features gifted items• I will admit, I am quite possibly the least green fingered person I know. I am awful when it comes to the garden, which is Ed’s domain (although he isn’t a big plant person either). My mum, however, would always be in the garden if she had her way. She loves a trip to the garden centre to pick up things to plant, and she has a...

Adding a Touch of Fun to Children’s Bedroom Decor with Hurn & Hurn

•Features gifted items• We have been decluttering the house over the past week or so, in preparation for updating the children’s bedrooms. The main motivation for this was getting rid of Benjamin’s cotbed. He hasn’t been sleeping in it for months as he’s been sharing his big brother’s double bed, but it still feels like a bit of a milestone getting rid of it completely. We were sent across a...

Updating Our Home with Desenio Prints

•Sponsored Post featuring gifted items• Ever since I first collaborated with Desenio last year, I fell in love with their vast range of affordable prints. There truly is something to suit every taste and budget on the Desenio website, which is really easy to navigate, with the option to search for something specific, or by category, print size or price. I could quite easily spend hours just browsing and picking...

Fixing Common Household Problems With Tape

•Guest Post• Home deterioration is inevitable, especially if you have lived in the house over a long period of time. It is often advised that obvious signs of wear and tear should be attended with a renovation to make sure the structure is still safe to live in. However, if the property doesn’t pose any immediate threat, you can opt for a cheaper, quicker solution and use a material that most...
