We have chosen to freshen up our rooms with some new pictures, as we were able to choose from a gorgeous range of posters online along with chunky black frames for all of them. I am so very happy with them all and am convinced that you’ll love them, too! The …

Oreck Magnesium RS Vacuum Cleaner Review

We’ve received a new vacuum here, so have been putting it through its paces. We now have the Oreck Magnesium RS vacuum cleaner… I have to say, I had not heard of Oreck before. Apparently, they’re originally an American brand that pioneered more lightweight vacuums in the 1960’s. They were originally …

An Easy Way to Brighten Up A Room

I don’t know about you, but we don’t have much wallpaper in our house. We have the living room papered, but all of our other rooms and hallway are painted. I like the flexibility that this gives us with decorating as we can easily change the look and feel of …

8 Quirky Kitchen Treats You’ll Love

Last year we gave our kitchen a makeover by having it all repainted and buying some new accessories. It feels a lot lighter and brighter in there and we enjoy spending time together in the kitchen. Last month we bought some new dinnerware, so this month I’m thinking about kitchen accessories to …

Plans For The Home This Year

At the start of each year, I like to look around the home and plan little projects in to spruce it up and change things around. Last year’s plans were the kitchen makeover, freshening up the bathroom, we redecorated the hall, stairs and landing, got a new shed and re-landscaped …

I’m Loving…Flamingo Gifts

Earlier this year I brought you my top picks from Flamingo Gifts, including my gorgeous rack of milk bottles. They remain one of my favourite little touches in my newly decorated kitchen, so I was more than happy to work with the team again and select a few items to …

5 Things to Consider When Planning a Child’s Bedroom

Having given both of our children’s bedrooms makeovers over the past year, there’s a few key points which have struck me, things that I knew we needed to get right. It’s well worth taking a little time to plan your child’s room redesign and taking into account a few key …

My Next Home…

Ah, to dream. We are happy in our home, but it’s always fun to daydream, right? I mean, if I could have anything, I’d want something like this…. But seeing as that’s a National Trust property (Baddesley Clinton), I’m thinking it might be a bit out of my grasp! So …

Creating a Snuggly Living Room

During the summertime, I love having the doors ajar, tempting us out into the garden, the windows all open letting the fresh air breeze through, bringing in fresh flowers every few days from our cut-flower patch, and keeping the curtains open until late into the evening. The longer, warmer days make me …

A Bedroom Fit For A 5 year Old Girl

As I mentioned last week, we have given Boo’s bedroom a full makeover. I shared a couple of pictures over on Instagram, and as people were telling me they liked it, I thought I’d share a bit more here for you, along with the details of where we got everything from (mainly …

Becoming an Allergenius

Last week we were invited along to find out more about common household allergies, with ao.com and Hotpoint. As a family, we do have our fair share of allergies, so I was keen to find out more. The Husband has hayfever with grass pollen, whilst I have it earlier in the year …

Magic Blackout Blinds & More

I cannot be the only parent who has used towels and sheets to try and black out the light in a caravan? Surely?! If we stay in a caravan, the beds are invariably right underneath the window meaning that I know my kids will be up at the crack of …

Think About The Family-Friendly Floor

Flooring isn’t something that I gave a whole lot of thought to when we first bought our house. There were carpets I didn’t like, so we replaced them quite soon after we moved in, and that’s about as much as I thought about it. Oh, how things have changed! Now, …

Kid’s Concept: An Introduction & Give-Away

Swedish baby and children’s brand Kid’s Concept is now available in the UK, and so today I’m sharing some of my top picks from their beautiful range and giving one of my readers a chance to win a gift voucher to spend with them, too. Here’s a little more about …

5 Steps for a One-Day Bathroom Makeover on a Budget

Having recently given our kitchen a makeover, I was itching to do so with our bathroom, too. We had a new bathroom put in a few years ago, and when we chose it, we deliberately selected neutral colours so that when the time came to freshen it up, we could do …

My Kitchen Makeover

We extended our home and had an open plan kitchen diner put in several years ago. Whilst I still love the bright, light room and sense of space I get in there, the decor was looking tired, the paint needed re-doing and I was getting bored of having the same look. …
