Refreshing Erin’s Bedroom With Hurn And Hurn

AD | Gifted items Before Erin was born, and definitely before she actually went into her own room, we tried to get it as ready for her as possible. We’d bought furniture like a wardrobe and IKEA storage in advance and we haven’t really done anything else with it for a long time. I think the only thing that has really changed is swapping a cot for a toddler bed and adding some woodland themed bedding. Recently, we were asked by Hurn and Hurn to pick out some items to help spruce up Erin’s room a little bit. Stylish storage

Keeping Our Home Tidy With Vintage Apple Crates

AD – This post is in collaboration with Vintage Apple Crates. All opinions are our own.  Erin is such an outdoorsy child and I think from the minute she learned to walk, she wanted to be in the garden. We have had a good few weeks of bad weather lately but that doesn’t stop Erin from wanting to either play outside or go to the park. Unfortunately, our large lawn gets extremely muddy and disgusting during the winter and I’m a bit reluctant to let Erin play out there a lot of the time. At home, all of Erin’s shoes

My Favourite Charity Shop Bargain

We live in a smallish town in North Norfolk and although we’re only 30 minutes away from Norwich by train, I don’t get into the city much. This means that, as well as a lack of money, I don’t go shopping much at all. Something we do have where I live is quite a lot of charity shops though. I think we have at least 6 or 7 in our market square and they’re great to have a rummage in. I have one favourite thing that I’ve bought locally and it really is a charity shop bargain! One day, I

Our Personalised Star Map From GreaterSkies

AD – We received this product for the purpose of this post. All opinions are our own.  This April we will have lived in our house for 5 years. I think I am getting to the point where I finally know what I want to do in certain rooms and areas. Most of that includes a lot of work though like plastering, ripping out bathrooms and kitchens and actually changing the use of some rooms. We can’t afford any of that right now but what we can do is spruce up some rooms with accessories and prints. With Valentine’s Day coming

Getting My Home Organised For The New Year

AD – We received products for the purpose of this post. All opinions are our own.  The New Year is just around the corner and while I don’t really make resolutions as such, I do like to start the year in a certain way. Just before Christmas I like to have a good clean up and clear out of things we don’t want or need. Right after Christmas I like to get really organised and put things away as soon as possible to make sure life can get back to normal quickly and without any hassle. I think starting the New

What Makes The Best Guest Bedroom

Our spare bedroom has been occupied for the best part of 8 months. However, my sister and her fiancé moved into their own house in July which means we have our room back and it’s time to start thinking about making a few changes. Although I use the room for photography and storage it also has to work as a place for family and friends to sleep when they come to visit. That got me thinking about what would make the best guest bedroom and here are a few ideas: Peaceful colours While I am all for having colour downstairs

Saving Space With Prestige Kitchen Hacks

There are many things I dislike about our house at the moment but one of the biggest things is our kitchen. We have a galley kitchen which means it’s really small and narrow and there isn’t a whole lot of storage space. This means that we have to be clever with the things we buy, making sure we have enough space to store them. We were recently introduced to the Prestige Kitchen Hacks range and there are some fantastic products to help with space issues in the kitchen. We have very limited counter space and numerous containers for things like utensils or

What To Buy As A Housewarming Gift

My sister has been living with us since December after being made redundant and her fiancé moved in a couple of months ago. Yesterday they picked up the keys to the house they’ll be renting so that means that today they are moving out! Moving house can be an expensive and stressful time but it’s really nice if family and friends buy a housewarming gift. Today I’m sharing with you a few ideas for what might make a great housewarming gift. Something I remember needing when we moved in to our house was a fruit bowl. It seems to be
