SleepOrange Mattress – Designed With Your Kids In Mind

Kids can sleep anywhere can’t they? In the past I have found my kids asleep wrapped around the toilet, on top of the kitchen counter and under (under?!?) the sofa. So, I never really thought too much about where they slept at night and what they were sleeping on…

Under Stair Storage Ideas

Now this is a story all about how my life got switched, turned upside down and I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there. I’ll tell you how I became the owner of some storage under the stairs. Sorry, blatant rip off of Prince of Bel Air there, but my new under stair storage needed something a little more exciting to introduce it other than, nice shelves in a small area….

Why You Should Change Your Pinterest From Personal to Business

Continuing on the theme of all things Pinterest (if you only ever use it for pictures of cats and tutorials on how to make slime, this isn’t for you! 😊), I will write a blog on each of the top tips I included in my blog post “How I Grew My Pinterest Views to Nearly 4 million in under 4 months”.

Becoming A Better Blogger

I am rubbish at new year resolutions and frankly, stereotypical with it all. Every year I promise to get thinner/richer/fitter/become a teetotaller and every year I fail miserably. By January 10th I’m reaching for the wine…

What My First Full Year On Instagram Has Taught Me

2018 started with a bang for me, my Instagram posts were consistently getting extremely good engagement and my follower count was growing by the day. Ironically, fast forward to the end of 2018 and with 50,000 more followers, my posts are now getting less likes and comments than they did a year ago…

Pantone Colour Of The Year – Red, Orange or Peach?

Pantone have just announced their colour of 2019 and it’s….. Living Coral?!? Immediately it conjures up bridesmaid dresses, all twee and meringue like or a nail varnish that gets left unused in your make up bag…

A Simple DIY Snowflake Star For Christmas

After visiting Home Sense to purchase some Christmas decor, I realised that I am drawn to stars. I have made a few snowflake stars to hang around the house, so here’s a quick tutorial on how to make them.

How To Create a Twig Christmas Tree Decoration

When Command Brand contacted me asking if I would like to try out their products when creating a homemade Christmas decoration, I knew exactly what I wanted to make. I had seen a few twig tree decoration guides on Pinterest and several high street stores selling them for the festive period and thought they looked fun, simple and relatively cheap to make.

How I Grew My Pinterest Views To Nearly 4 Million In Under 4 Months

Yep, you read the title right! Back in June I had 13 followers on Pinterest and just under 750 monthly unique viewers which I thought was fab seeing as I’d never really used it properly. But when I realised that Pinterest had so much to offer, I managed to grow my follower count to just under 500 (and growing quickly all the time) and over 3.5 million monthly unique viewers. Yes! Millions!!

A Convert to Table Styling

Way before I started taking whole room shots of my house for Instagram, I was always fascinated with flat lays and beautifully set tables on Pinterest. Here I attempt to create my own with a little advice along the way…

A Quick(ish) Kitchen Update

Our house was always a doer upper. We bought it as a renovation project as I always prefer to put my stamp on a property and not pay through the nose for a house that has already been renovated, but not always to my taste.
