VonHaus Colonial Storage Chest Review

AD | Gifted At this time of year I am in constant preparation for Christmas and Erin’s birthday on New Year’s Day. I’m sure you can imagine how much stuff we end up with at home within a short space of time. Between Christmas and birthday presents Erin get a lot of new things and of course, they all need to go somewhere. While I do try to have a bit of a clear out beforehand that’s not always enough so this year I have looked into new storage options. Wanting something clean, simple and something that would hide quite

Adding A Personal Touch To Our Living Room With My-Picture.co.uk

AD | Paid collaboration Over the past year or so I have been trying to do more things to make our house a bit more homely. We haven’t had much money lately to make many upgrades or have things fixed but we also want Erin to live somewhere as nice as possible so it’s time to get a few things done. We have a large open plan living room/ dining room and it’s where we spent most of our time. Unfortunately, the walls aren’t in great condition so we can’t do things like paint, decorate or do too much DIY

VonHaus 15 Drawer Trolley Review

AD | Contains gifted items When we first moved into our house I thought I knew exactly what I wanted and how I wanted each room to be. Now, 5 years on, things have changed a lot. We now have Erin who is nearly 4, a cat and I am self-employed so one of our spare bedrooms is now an office. For ages now I have been looking for the ideal office storage for me and found exactly what I wanted on the VonHaus website. VonHaus have quite a few great storage options but one that immediately stood out to

Home Improvements To Consider As You Get Older

AD | Collaborative post I hate to say it but the years seem to be passing by far too fast at the minute and it seems like it was only yesterday that I was celebrating being 25. Now, I am closer to 35 and since having Erin I have really started to think about the future more. We bought this house with the intention of doing the huge list of improvements it needs and making it our forever home. We’re nowhere near being done so I think we probably will stay here unless something huge happens like us winning the

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

5 Ways To Give Your Child’s Bedroom A Makeover

AD | This is a collaborative post. Erin turned 3 at the beginning of the year. She is still in the same bedroom as she was when she was born and it’s been a long time since we first decorated that room. I tried to keep it very neutral at the time with no gender specific features but at the time we didn’t know Erin or her personality. Now that Erin knows what she likes and she doesn’t I’ve been thinking about giving her bedroom a bit of a makeover to suit her better. Here are some ideas: A statement

4 Easy Ways To Turn Your Bathroom Into A Family-friendly Space

Disclaimer: This is a collaborative post. With a young daughter, husband and pets, our family bathroom can be a very busy place. On the one hand, it needs to be the most functional of spaces in which we can get ready in the morning and prepare Erin for bed time with a calming bath. On the other hand, I would love it to be a peaceful, relaxing place in which I can unwind, relax and have a bit of well-earned “me time”. When browsing those perfect family bathroom suites, you’ll need to think long and hard about how you can

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
