Stylish Bathroom Storage From Joseph Joseph

This year I have been on a bit of a mission to get the house more in order. Erin has sort of taken over everywhere but I’m sick of there being ‘stuff’ everywhere. Not too long ago we had some help from Joseph Joseph to make the most of our small kitchen. The next room to tackle on my list was the bathroom. We’ve recently got a new bathroom cabinet which has meant us moving all of the medicines into the downstairs toilet but that wasn’t enough. Luckily, Joseph Joseph have just launched a brand new bathroom range and we’ve

Erin’s Woodland Themed Bedroom

As soon as I found out I was pregnant I knew how I wanted Erin’s bedroom to be. As we couldn’t find out if we were having a boy or girl for a while I decided to paint the room in a very neutral mushroom kind of colour. We’re not a very overly pink or blue kind of family so I wanted something as gender neutral as I could. My mum’s surname is Fox and that has played a large part in how I chose to decorate Erin’s bedroom. Erin’s first ever toy was a fox that I bought her

Inspiration For Summer Interiors

When it comes to decorating, no one really wants to do it in the winter. I personally wouldn’t want to do much painting while it’s freezing and wet outside because I wouldn’t want to have the windows in the house open. According to chill.ie, 59% of people said they would change their interior design during the summer! Where winter is dark and dingy, summer is all about fresh, light colours and pops of colour. Here are some tips for sprucing up your interiors this summer: Bring the outdoors in! When I think of summer I think about being in the garden, visiting

Illuminate your bathroom with Lumino!

Our house is a bit strange. Yep, strange. We bought a fixer upper knowing that loads of work needed to be done. Something we really struggle with is finding places to put things, especially in the bathroom. We actually have a separate bathroom and WC and each room needs storage. We have a double bathroom cabinet in the bathroom already, jam packed with toiletries. There is no more space in there at all. We recently received a gorgeous LED battery cabinet from Lumino and I am so impressed with it. We decided that instead of replacing our large bathroom cabinet would

Seventh Generation Eco-friendly Household Products & Giveaway

I think when you have a family you tend to pay more attention to the products you buy and what you use around the house. I know I have become more aware of the chemicals in certain products since having Erin. I definitely try to make sure that we don’t buy anything that could irritate her skin. After attending Blog On a couple of months ago I discovered an American brand called Seventh Generation. This is a company with a difference as they make plant based products that only contain natural ingredients. This means that they are completely safe to

Home Improvement Dreams

When John and I bought this house in 2014 I already had a massive list of things that I wanted to do to it. You see, we bought a fixer upper! At the time, we knew we had to get on the properly ladder and I could see the potential in the run down 4 bedroom Victorian semi that we ended up buying. John wanted something much more modern but as usual, I got my own way. 3 years down the line we haven’t got nearly as much done as I’d hoped and my list only gets longer. Extension  I

Feeding The Birds And Welcoming Nature

Erin loves being out in the garden. I was never really very outdoorsy as a child, I think because we never had a real garden. We had a concrete area at the back of the house but no plants at all. Maybe this is why bees and wasps scare me so much. I love how much Erin enjoys being outside and I want it to stay that way. Boxwild have recently helped us out with a fantastic way of feeding the birds that may come into our garden. We have started out with the Bird Feeder Gift Box which costs

Chairs Vs. Your Back

In fact, this title might even be a tad misleading – it’s not like it’s just your back that can struggle from sitting on a chair for too long! Everyone has chairs throughout their home. There are dining room chairs, kitchen chairs, and of course the living room. Our homes are full of them, but how much thought did you actually put in to what you buy? If you’re anything like the vast majority of people when they purchase furniture, it went something like this:   You thought long and hard about what you wanted to buy, then began investigating
