3 tips for stress-free Christmas shopping

The festive season is well and truly here and I am all about getting sorted for Christmas. I’m wrapping gifts, buying advent calendars, booking in Christmas catch-ups and parties and popping up cute Christmas lights! Yas. Speaking of Christmas lights, how awesome are these customisable alphabet lights from Cox & Cox? If you know me, you’ll know that I am all about anything that I can customise, personalise or generally have my name on. I was all about those velvet headbands with my name on in the Nineties, so, why should that change? You could write Merry Christmas, your names, Ho Ho Ho, reindeer’s names, anything that’ll make you feel festive af.

Bedroom updates + win £50 to spend at JUNIQE

I’ve always loved prints and, posters and sticking things up on my walls. From Kerrang! magazine posters to quirky prints from Urban Outfitters and IKEA now, I just love how they can change a room’s look and feel. I even painted Alexisonfire lyrics on my walls when I was 13, (sorry Mum), but I just love a bit of art, don’t I? On this note, we finally got around to doing something with our bedroom and giving it the same TLC that we’ve given the (only other) room in our flat, the kitchen/diner.

3 ways to perfect furniture buying

Furniture is a huge piece of the puzzle when it comes to getting your interiors perfect. Not only is furniture a practical necessity (obv), but it’s a huge part of your style picture. If the furniture in a room isn’t working, then it’s impossible for the room to look its best. When trying to find that missing piece of the puzzle, it can be easy to throw yourself headfirst into a furniture search. Flicking through the gorgeous interiors Instagram accounts is my first port of call! That’s the easy part. Here are three of the most common mistakes that we all make when buying furniture. If you can cut these out of your shopping experience, you can be sure the result will be a room that is just how you want it.

4 of my favourite simple autumn things

Autumn is officially here, rejoice with the leaf emojis, hot chocolates and Christmas lists. Yes. Here are 4 basic bish things that I love about autumn.

1. Buying and wearing knitwear

You might have caught my fave new knit over on Instagram that came from my 9 fave AW season knitwear pics post. The ASOS babe that has the perfect slouch, a lovely high neck and a cosy autumnal colour. Knitwear, jumpers, sweater weather, whatever you want to call it, buying and wearing cosy pieces are one of the best things about autumn. I haven’t yet got all of my really thick knits out of storage yet but I tell ya, it’s coming soon.

3 essential adulting things to learn

Adulting is so boring sometimes but, I’ll let you into a secret, it actually feels so good when you understand how to do something super adult-y. I’m talking the boring shit that your mum or dad always used (and still sometimes do) for you. Here are three adulting nightmares that we’ve overcome in the past year or so that I thought I’d offer some boring (but helpful) tips on. =&0=& Utilities are the one thing that no one wants to pay for, right? It’s so annoying. But, it’s even more annoying when you overspend on these things and don’t know how to save money. We learned the hard way and now we know exactly how to use our water heating without using the ‘boost’ button that costs loads of money! Yay. Some home shit that I’d massively recommend learning about is storage heaters if you live in a flat. These can rinse your money SO BADLY. We got a nasty surprise with our electric because we didn’t know how to use them properly so it feels awesome going into winter actually knowing what we’re doing now. Top tip:  Ask your landlord or estate agency people for all of the info on your boiler, your heating appliances and everything else that you might not know exactly how to use before you get a nasty bill. =&1=& Spending money on car stuff is the worst and remembering when to do it is even more annoying but it’s easier to get stuff sorted and spend £100 than to be stuck on a country road broken down when it’s raining. Check your brakes, change your tyres when you need to, get your service done like your dad always tells you too and don’t forget about your MOT because you could get in trouble for not having one if you get into an accident or anything. Top tip:=&2=&
