IKEA Brusali Corner Desk Review

For around the last 3.5 years I have had the same desk that I use for work. To start with, I worked from downstairs in the corner of the living room but later moved upstairs to the spare bedroom which is now my office. At the time, I thought the Ikea Alex/ Linnmon Desk was the perfect desk for me. However, things change and I recently realised that I needed to revamp my space and create stimulating home office, and that included getting a smaller desk that worked better in the space I have. So, after quite a bit of looking

Creating A Work Space To Maximise Efficiency

AD | Collaborative post Being someone that works from home means that I don’t have the same kind of work environment as other people. I am very lucky to have been able to convert one of our spare bedrooms into an office of my own. However, I have recently realised that my office isn’t a place where I feel calm or even where I get much done. Most of the time it’s an absolute mess thanks to things just being dumped in there. Now, Erin is off nursery and I am trying to fit in being with her all day,

Creating The Right Work Environment At Home

AD | Collaborative post When you are self-employed, especially if you work from home, it’s easy to get into bad habits. The sofa becomes a make shift office, you can work in your pyjamas and you can scoff a whole cake while you work if you want to. The thing is, as nice as all of this sounds, it doesn’t really make for a good or productive working environment. Now that I’ve been self-employed full time for around 3 years I have learned quite a lot about how kind of environment I need at home. Separate office space Up until about

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

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 – Gifted items 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 Year being tidy and organised can really help you to have

Home Office Wishlist

I love having my own little corner of the house to work in. Okay, it’s a bit bigger than a small corner as I have a huge Ikea Alex/ Linnmon desk that takes up a big space and I also have a couple of storage units next to and behind the desk. However, my office is far from perfect and there’s loads more I would do with it if I could like moving the cat’s huge scratching post/ house somewhere else! That aside, I do have a bit of a home office wishlist going on right now! I am a big

Epson EcoTank ET-7750 Review

Working from home and having a pretty busy life means needing as many things as possible to keep us organised. Erin has started nursery now and we sometimes get emailed calendar dates and school activities that will be happening soon and I really like to have these things printed out for both me and John. To make our lives a bit easier we were recently sent the Epson EcoTank ET-7750 printer. Now, until recently I didn’t know what an EcoTank was so many other people might not either. Unlike a regular printer, the EcoTank works with a different ink system. Instead
