If homeware shopping isn’t your favourite thing then I’m not sure we can be friends… Joking, obv we can but if you want to chat about homeware I’m your girl. Shopping is all kinds of fun for yourself but for the house it’s so much more fun isn’t it? I’ve been loving the summer sales that have been going on this month and wanted to share some amazing finds with you all! I would normally post only on Sundays, that’s been my regular routine but because I don’t want these bargains to get away I thought I’d do an earlier one this week.
This post is 100% not sponsored. I bloody wish. Matalan, hit me up babes – we’d be a collab made in heaven, not gonna lie. I’m simply just a homeware junkie, Pinterest addict and we’re in the process of buying our first proper home so as you can expect, I am all about shopping for budget-friendly buys to pimp out our new pad. Yas! Here are 10 of my favourite things that Matalan are stocking at the moment. I dare you to not click add to basket.
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.
As if it’s September? It’s basically autumn and summer is well and truly behind us. Well, I hope the weather realises so anyway because I always get so confused this time of year about what to wear. The day will start out freezing and you’ll be sweating by lunchtime. Nightmare. Anyway, seeing as it’s a whole new month I thought I’d share some items I’m lusting over for the new season.
I never thought I’d be the type of girl to crave a ‘dressing table’ or somewhere to lay all my makeup out but after not having one forever I’m definitely wanting one at the moment! I think once we’re finally settled in a ‘proper house’ it’ll be high up on my list of priorities for our bedroom.
There are so many things I love when it comes to interiors, decor and home ware in general. One of the things that tends to catch my eye the most though is flooring, which I believe is the very foundation to any house (literally!). Flooring can set the tone for a whole room, when paired with different furnishings it can bring so many features out to play. With that in mind I have decided to chat about a couple of my fave floors with you, some old, some new but all just lovely!
For most people, their home is their haven. Somewhere they can relax when things get them down. At home, you can truly relax, be yourself and do what you want, when you want, right? Totally.
Looking after your home is really important. It is an investment in yourself and can have a huge impact on your general well-being. The way you decorate can be particularly important. It has a big impact on the feeling of each room. Let’s look at how to decorate in a way that creates a feel-good ambience that will help you to relax and recharge your batteries.
Did you know that 48% of people are unconcerned about risks to their health from doing DIY? How crazy is that? Half of the people surveyed by slatergordon.co.uk don’t care that they could get hurt or injure someone else by just doing a little DIY. These people be crazy. I mean 45% of these people would just drill into a wall. Calm your drills, guys.
A question in most of our minds: how do you design a kitchen that is fit for family living but can impress your guests at any party occasion? Naturally. Well, I love entertaining and having small get-togethers and everything always ends up in the kitchen! A kitchen is often the heart of a home, not just parties, as a place where all the family gather together. So, how can we achieve a family space by day and the perfect party venue by night?
