10 Colourful Floors for Kids!

colourful floor for kids

You only need to take a look at my Instagram to know that, like so many others… #IHaveThisThingWithFloors So when an e-mail dropped into my inbox from a brand called Atrafloor with an absolutely bonkers amount of cute floor designs, I knew it was something I couldn’t keep to myself. The brand currently prints designs onto a premium vinyl. Now, I don’t know about you,

Ethereal Style, High Street Prices

I think the high street have really upped their game over the past few years when it comes to homeware. It’s no accident that they’re stocking the likes of copper baskets and marble serving platters – the trends that keep on giving. Items you used to find in the stylised heavens of the department stores you can find when you do the grocery shopping. It’s

Llama Trekking in Yorkshire (& Vlog!)

“What are you up to this weekend, Karen?” “Me and my husband are having a weekend away. Getting a babysitter and off to walk a llama.” “Sorry, what?” Yeah so that was pretty much how most of my conversations went earlier this month. You see, for my birthday last year I asked to go llama trekking! My in-laws treated me to just that, but it’s

War of the Whiffs: Candles Vs Wax Melts

an itroduction to wax melts

It’s time for a showdown! This week I’ve had a little playabout with wax melts. I know, I know, these aren’t new. Wax melts have been around for ages, but truth be told, I’ve never thought much of them. Whilst the hubster is a big fan of smelly candles, and we visit IKEA often enough to top up our stash, candles were always our go-to

Why Dr Seuss is My #1 Designer

WHY SEUSS WAS THE GREATEST DESIGNER

It’s probably not much of a secret that I’m a big fan of Dr. Seuss. I’ve long loved his illustrations and adored his books as a child. Myself and my sister, often mistaken for twins, acknowledge each other as Thing 1 and Thing 2, lovingly of course. As an adult I can appreciate Dr. Seuss for the philosopher he was (and if you’re not aware

Manchester on Insta: WALLS

Manchester Instagram

Manchester street art has long been admired, as has our mish-mash of architectural styles, and that twinkle of colour around every corner in the concrete jungle. It’s what I love about this city that I’m proud to call mine. You only have to take a look at my Instagram to know that, or the Manchester Instagram community in general. The truth is, I’m a big believer that negativity

Primark Homeware Haul: Tropical, Luxe & Kids

Primark Homeware Haul

Hello you lovely bunch of coconuts. So recently I took a trip to Primark – not unusual for me. It’s near to where I work and I needed to pick up a few cheap bits of clothes for Luna. On this occasion, I made the mistake of walking past the homeware section and for the first time, I became one of those people who came

That Time We Bought & Sold A House in 48 Hours

moving house

It’s been a rollercoaster few days and for those who follow me on Instagram, thank you so much for all of your advice and positive vibes! Last weekend I spotted a house on the market. Not just any house. Our dream house on paper. Period property. Bags of room (as in 2,700 square feet). Over 80 feet of garden. Cellars. Garage. Sheds. Converted Attic. Doors

Dinnerware you’ll want to colour in

Spring is SO close, I can feel it in the air! I’m definitely more of a winter gal at heart, but there is something about those chilly get-ups with a glow of morning sun that gives me all the feels. (Or maybe it’s the fact that I can finally rock my floral bomber jacket collection and not completely freeze to death!) That being said, it’s

Bold & Bright Toddler Bedroom MAKEOVER

BRIGHT TODDLER BEDROOM MAKEOVER

Towards the end of last year, we moved Luna from her box room nursery into a bigger bedroom. As a budding gymnast already at the age of 2, it had got to the point where she could escape her teeny room and it was clear she needed more space as she was growing. (By the way, I’m still SO proud of what we achieved with
