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.
Spring is nearly rolling around and our fluffy blankets are being put back into storage! As soon as it gets above 10 degrees I feel like I need a little home update to bring it into the new season. Some people might think it’s silly to think about styling your home for the new season but I think it definitely makes a difference. You don’t want thick blankets and overpowering cinnamon candles when we’re heading into April, do ya? Definitely not!
Self-care is getting so much air time these days and it’s so great that it is. We’re all starting to realise how great it is to treat yourself, be Hygge at home, chill out, relax, stop beating ourselves up about eating chocolate biscuits and just generally be nice to ourselves. It’s all about relaxing, your wellbeing, your health, sleep quality, the list goes on. But, at the end of the day it’s all things that we should care SO much about but in this crazy modern age (lol how old am I?), we can forget about because we’re just “too busy”. Here are four of the ways that I’m trying to use to look after myself a little bit more. After all, we only gots one body and one mind, guys, might as well treat them right!
Browsing Pinterest for new ideas is one of the best ways (and my favourite ways) to get started when you’re planning any kind of interior makeover. From fixing up a single room to refreshing your entire home, you’ll find wonderful ideas for décor, furnishings and quirky artworks. And if you adore an upcycling challenge, Pinterest is the place to do your research. Here are just a few of the best home makeover tips to get you excited.
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.
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.
When you’ve lived somewhere for a while, like anything that sticks around for longer than 5 minutes, there is the tendency to become a bit bored with it. But, unless you’re cu-razy rich it’s probably not on the cards to up and move every time you get bored with your home and interiors.
Looking for a fresh way to decorate your home? Why not get inspired by nature, and bring the outdoors in? It works for kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, bedrooms, wherever you want to use it. Best of all, you can stick to the theme as closely or loosely as you’d like and make it work for you and your tastes. Here are a few of the ways you could go about using nature in your decor.
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.
