My Sofa.com style is… Choosing a New Sofa With Sofa.com*

At the end of last year, sofa.com got in touch with me to see if I would like a new sofa for our living room and it couldn’t have come at a better time. We bought our old corner sofa when we lived in a house with a much larger living room and a huge open brick fireplace, so it was very large, brown and beige…

A Little Bit Of Garden Luxury With Argos Home*

I recently revamped our decking in the garden and was very pleased with what I managed to achieve, creating something a little different to enjoy. Our problem now was, we had quite large and bulky furniture…

Adding a decking in the garden is such a great way of creating a social space for your family, providing a great extra living area for the warmer months. The problem in the UK is our weather! We created our decking space back in April 2017 and within two years it had become dirty, damp and unsightly.

Bathroom Renovation

What are the first rooms you look at when you are viewing a property? I always make a beeline for the kitchen and bathroom and if I’m happy with them, the rest will do.

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…

How To Make Your Own Spring Wreath

I really wanted a spring wreath and absolutely loved seeing all the beautiful creations appearing on my Instagram feed. I already had some faux eucalyptus and flowers around the house so used what I already had to create my own wreath. Here is a step by step guide to how I did it…

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…
