Ok, so a bit of long winded title for a post that is basically just a revamp project, but I have turned a old storage box into something that you could find on the shelves of Oliver Bonas. After getting a bit DIY happy with my decorating project, which has now extended into surveying the state of the walls and woodwork, I’m getting carried away with this whole house revamp. I’m going to end up skint, but with a beautiful home to sit in a whilst I eat beans on toast. When I moved into my first apartment in the UK, it was the first time I moved out properly and I was severely lacking in storage. A trip to Ikea for necessities led me to a plain wooden storage box with nine pull out drawers which back then, I used for my makeup storage. Seriously, I had that little back then. I’d already spent time customising the box way back then with some rather garish zebra print paper but once I’d settled into my neutral and pastel colour palette, that soon was stripped away.

The box itself was in really good condition, except for being a tad dusty and having glue marks where I had stuck the old paper onto it. A quick clean up with some sugar soap and a buff down, it was ready for its makeover. With a open pot of gloss paint, I painted the box in white and left to dry whilst I concentrated on the drawers. This season, pastel hues are so popular and Wilkos have a huge selection of tester pots of paints for just £1. In the colours Pearl Grey, Mint Crisp and Pink Harmony, the emulsion paints covered the wood easily and dried quickly. A total of three coats of paint were added to the fronts of the drawers with two coats of gloss to the box.

I think this £12 box (which unfortunately isn’t available anymore), looks to be a lot more expensive than the £3 that I’ve spent on updating it and I now longer look at it thinking how scruffy it looks. I’ve used the box to store all my jewellery inside, and due to the nine drawers, I can have an organised system for all my DanFrank Jewellery, Pandora collection and still have room to display my watch collection on top.

My watch collection has grown increasingly over the last few years and as I have to wear a watch for work, I find myself feeling slightly naked when I don’t wear one when I’m not in uniform. I have loads of fast fashion watches, with a preference for Sekonda and Seksy for both work and day to day. My JORD wood watch* is one of the most unusual pieces that I own, but lately I’ve been thinking of investing in a designer piece. As my disposable income wouldn’t really stretch to a brand new Patek Philipe, one can only dream of owning such a timeless brand. A pre-owned watch would be my best bet which makes making owning such a high value item within my reach. Cartier? Chanel? Ooh, I can’t decide!

I love giving a new lease of life back into those things that would otherwise be cast aside, and the same goes for taking something something that someone else has fallen out of love with such as a watch. It’s definitely making the forgettable, unforgettable.

The 24th January marked my nine year anniversary of being in my lovely house. Nine years of constantly being unable to decide on a colour scheme, or a theme for each room. My two bedroom house is quite reasonable in size but it seriously has given my stress over the years when it comes to styling and decorating. So much so, that my second bedroom has literally become a dumping ground for shoes and clothes, and although there is a spare bed in there, it was basically used as a bed-drobe. I needed to bring the love the back and turn this waste of space into a tranquil room that would be suitable for having guests to stay as well as giving me an area when I could possibly utilise it as a relaxing blogging space, and in the future as a You Tube filming area.

As a single lady, I’ve got used to doing small home improvements but the thought of wallpapering a room filled me with dread. I knew that I had to get in some help, in the form of my friend for hanging the wallpaper, but the rest of the room I tackled logically. After clearing as much of the room as possible, and shrinking my wardobe down to a more manageable size, I set about scrubbing the room with sugar soap to get it as clean as possible. Nine years of being unloved had really set in there. Things like the skirting boards and window ledge were needing some TLC, as they had never been touched since I moved in. A fresh coat of gloss paint made the world of difference, whilst a lick of magnolia across the walls that weren’t being papered brightened it up dramatically.

On the wall that was being papered, I could see just from looking that the wall sloped to the left hand side which in a normal wallpaper hanging situation a plump line would help to get the wallpaper straight. Luckily for me, the wall was already papered with lining paper that was level, and made a huge difference in the papering processing. The only tools that I needed were a pair of step ladders, a table to paste on, paste, a pasting brush and a wooden spoon, scissors, a seam roller and a brush to sweep the bubbles from the paper. I set a whole day to paper one wall as I was really unsure of how it would go.

The paper that I chose was the Inspired Wallpapers Vintage Lace Rose Gold Damask wallpaper from Crown. At £9.99 per roll, its a really good quality paper, and looks a lot more expensive that it cost. I selected three rolls for the one wall, however in total only one drop from the third roll was used, leaving plenty over in case I decided to paper another smaller wall.

Hanging the first piece took the most concentration, mainly because it was the first piece and we wanted to be spot on with the hanging. The first piece was in the centre of the wall, and from there I worked in towards the window and then back out towards the left hand side and into the corner. In total, between the two of us working together, we completed the wall in under three hours, with a break halfway through for bacon butties and tea. I don’t think I would do anything differently next time, except for not papering the top and bottom where the creases were as they did slightly stick to the skirt and the ceiling. Matching the joins was quite easy and actually quite enjoyable. A bit like a giant paper jigsaw, I worried more about getting a smooth seam and matching join, and it’s come out beautifully. The wall underneath could have been re-plastered for a smoother finish but for an instant revamp, I’m so happy with the outcome.

As I’ve redecorated the wall, of course I had to restyle the room. Once all my new furniture arrives and is in place, I’ll be updating the blog on how I’ve created a relaxing space that is so on trend that it hurts.

I actually cannot believe that today is the last day of November. Where this year has gone, I simply do not know. 2016 hasn’t been a particularly brilliant year and we’ve seen a lot of changes happen over the last eleven months. I suppose I’m reflecting back over the year now as I have all my content planned to celebrate the festive period and I don’t think that a reflection on the past has been brought to my forefront of my mind until I sat down and started typing away. It’s a bit of an unusual post from me today. I suppose with the reflection that I’m doing, the product I’m talking about may seem a bit strange for a beauty blog, but trust me, it’s something that has made someone’s life a little bit easier. Cutting a long story short but someone very close to me has become quite poorly and life as we knew it has changed somewhat dramatically. In the quest to make life easier for all involved, something as simple as swapping a clunky upright vacuum cleaner for a lightweight cordless vac has helped immensely. The brand new Dyson V8 Absolute has made it’s way into my grandparents home and it’s changed life for the better.

Dyson, a well known household name has been going for many years now. I remember the first Dyson we had when I lived at my childhood home and the amount of fluff it picked up with the cyclone technology. Over the years, Dyson has expanded to bring not only vacuums to our homes but fans, heaters and the brand new hair dryer, which I naturally need. Taking the patented technology to the next level, the Dyson V8 Absolute is the top of the range cordless vacuum cleaner, that can be used to clean anywhere in the home and car with ease. The technology, as you would expect, is of the highest standard. Aside from being engineered for easy lifting, the V8 has more battery power compared to earlier models, more suction power to pick up the finest particles and allergens and a quiet yet powerful motor. The Dyson V8 Absolute comes with a soft roller cleaner head for hard floors, a nylon bristle cleaner head for carper as well as a smaller head for cleaning stairs and car interiors. Each part of the Dyson has been designed for one handed use. You can change the heads, remove the extender pole and even empty the bin using just one hand. It really is a nifty device.

My grandparents have been using the Dyson V8 Absolute over the last few weeks and after speaking to my Nanna, it sounds like it has made a world of difference. Being in their 70’s, lugging a large upright around does create issues, especially when it comes to the stairs and nooks and crannies. The V8 has changed things for the better and according to Nanna, it makes her want to clean up more. She finds it quick and easy to whizz around the lounge and dining room before changing the head of the Dyson to vac the conservatory and kitchen. The handheld Dyson can have the attachment for the stairs clipped directly to it, or onto the extending pole and it makes light work of manoeuvring around the stair lift. Charging takes around an hour for a full charge and gives a good 30 minutes of power with a full charge. The soft touch power switch is also comfortable in hand when being used.

I’m so pleased that something as simple as swapping vacuums has made such a world of difference to my grandparents. With it being cordless, it’s so easy just to pick it up and have a quick whizz around, or clean up any debris in an instant without having to worry about the nearest plug socket. Thank you Dyson, you’ve made a special couple very happy and definitely lightened the load.

The Dyson V8 Absolute is £449 from John Lewis.

Yes, my dears, you have read the title correctly. There is an Oliver Bonas in Manchester. I can’t tell you just how excited I was when I saw the boarded up shop front in Piccadilly Station. For those of you who are thinking ‘What’s an Oliver Bonas?’, let me tell you. Not only a bloggers paradise for those cute and quirky little accessories, marble and rose gold pieces of furniture and the to die for pineapple goblet, but a shop that offers homeware, beauty, fashion, accessories and gifts all under one roof. Each Oliver Bonas piece is carefully curated for it’s style and pleasing aesthetic, with pieces that inspire with great design and an eye for detail. I seriously could deck out my entire home with specialist pieces, that not only look amazing but feel homely and in keeping with my personal style.

The new store is fabulous. Fresh, bright and airy and packed full of the most beautiful pieces that make me want to spend all of my money. With a full range of products, it’s quite the sensory overload especially when faced with beautiful textures and fabrics of the cushions and throws at the front of the store, that mingle with statement pieces to fill a room. With the latest fashion pieces adorning the rails, gorgeous tote bags and scarves across the wall and the softest, fluffiest socks and winter warming hats, scarves and gloves, I wanted it all.

The beauty section is quite extensive, and what I love about Oliver Bonas Beauty is that all the packaging has hand drawn designs, in colourful bespoke patterns. I’ve been lucky enough to be gifted a beautiful Neroli and Mimosa candle and a Shea Butter Lip Balm, and the packaging is just so beautiful. The beauty range has been extended into a range of gifts ready for the festive period, and there are some delightful little crackers filled with bath marbles, as well as the cutest toiletry bag with a ginger cat design.

I couldn’t take my eyes of the homeware section and after spotting all the copper pineapple items, you can see why. My kitchen has a retro, vintage feel in shades of pistachio green and baby pink, and even just from browsing the aisles, I has spotted so many things that would look amazing in my kitchen. This is the thing with gorgeous homeware, I just want it all.

I have a feeling that a wish list post may be in order, but until then, you can see my favourites scattered throughout my pictures. Roll on payday! You can find Oliver Bonas at Manchester Piccadilly station next to Boots.

If you follow me on Instagram or any of my other social media channels, then you may have seen that I have a little bit of an addiction to candles and scenting my home with delicious fragrances. There’s something about a aroma in the air and I find that a lot of my memories are linked backed to certain smells. I like to have fresh clean cotton and linen scents in the Spring and apple, pumpkin and cinnamon in the autumn whilst winter gives way to the christmas inspired scents. I thought that I would put together a little post of eight of my newest winter candles that will be leaving my house feeling all warm and cosy over the next few months.

It’s no secret that I’m a massive Bath and Body Works candle fan and luckily, my job enables me to spend a lot of time in America and also spend a lot of dollars on candles. It is ridiculous with the price that I pay for these, especially when they aren’t on offer, as they retail for around $23 (£15). Luckily, I have managed to grab a handful whilst they’ve been on $12 offers or 2 for $24. In the last few weeks, I’ve brought 8 candles home and although some are to take me from Christmas into Winter, the others have been purchased solely for Christmas. I’ve been burning Marshmallow Fireside this week which smells of toasted marshmallows, creamy vanilla and with a hint of smouldering wood.

I’ve previously had Mahogany Teakwood, and Balsam so when I saw Mahogany Balsam it went straight in my basket. Described as a ‘Walk through wintry woods with the aromatic fragrance of fresh green balsam, juniper berries and rich mahogany’, I couldn’t resist, especially with my love for the deeper, more seductive fragrances and the liveliness of pine.

‘Tis the Season will be the next candle that I will be burning as it’s very Christmassy. Its described as ‘The rich, fruity scent of red apples, green pine & golden cider captures the joy of the season’ so it will be in keeping with the joy of Christmas.

My number one favourite Bath and Body Works Candle is Sweater Weather and I think that this is one of the most difficult ones to get hold of as its always sold out. I’m guessing there is a US Blogger who’s telling everyone to buy it. Its a real Autumn into Winter fragrance and it makes me want to curl up in the corner of my couch and get cosy. ‘Cuddle up with an aromatic blend of eucalyptus, juniper berry and fresh sage that celebrates the coziness of sweater weather’. Sounds amazing doesn’t it?

Christmas has started to become synonymous with Flamingo Candles, and each year I get another couple of candles to place around my house. I love Flamingo Candles as they are really well scented for the £12 price point and the natural soy wax gives a really even burn with no smokiness. All the candles are hand poured in the UK and who could resist the pretty Flamingos adorning the side of the jar. I have got the updated version of Mulled Wine and Berries*, which still has the same scent as last year – mulled wine, apple, sweet berries, wine, brandy, orange, clove, ginger, cinnamon and vanilla but with the addition of a glitter filled wax which is so lovely.

I’m trying Cinnamon Stick* for the first time, and the glitter filled wax is scented with cinnamon, ginger and orange on a base of vanilla. It’s not as intense as Mulled Wine and Berries whilst in the jar but is more warming and spicy. I will be using this in my kitchen to remind me of all the home baking that I won’t be getting chance to do this Christmas. Sad face.

In my bedroom, I am a creature of habit when it comes to candles. In my post last week on my favourite fragrances, I spoke about Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir and how I love this particular scent in my house. It will come as no surprise to you that I have a back up of the Pomegranate Noir candle and although this is probably the most expensive candle I’ve ever owned at £42, I will always be able to justify buying it as my mum has the luxury £280 one. Pomegranate Noir is described as ‘rich and fruity pomegranate and raspberry, the elegant floral note of Casablanca lily and the warmth of guaiac wood and amber’. Simply gorgeous.

Dunelm Gingerbread Candle

Crabtree and Evelyn Windsor Forest Candle

A Sunday afternoon browse in Dunelm led to me this little Gingerbread scented candle. It was only £2 and the scent that it gives off is so warm and lovely. I have this burning in the kitchen at the moment and it does remind me of Christmas whilst making my kitchen feel so warming and inviting. A very good find, and although I can’t see it on the Dunelm website, they had a large selection of different scents, and all at £2 per jar.

Do you know when you open a box that has been delivered and literally all you can smell is the contents? When this Crabtree & Evelyn Windsor Forest Botanical Candle* was delivered, I could smell it before I even opened the packet. It’s Christmas in a candle, from the fresh scent of fir needle, spruce and pine combined with holly and juniper, it is evoking some serious nostalgia right now. I don’t actually even want to open the candle and burn it because I don’t want the amazing smell to disappear. The candle itself is beautiful; ivory and filled with spruce and ivy leaves. It would look wonderful on a decorated table for Christmas Dinner, and if I do eventually decide to burn it, it will sit pride of place on my coffee table whilst filling my home with that sprucy pine scent that is quite apparent that I love.

Do you like to have Christmas candles? What’s your favourite scent?

Being away from home so often means that I want my house to feel like a sanctuary when I get home. After years of staying in some of the most luxurious hotels around the world, it has started a precedent in that I want a bedroom that not only resembles a boutique hotel but one that makes me want to climb into bed and stay there. Over the last few years, I have been working on my bedroom décor to create a space that is not only inviting but homely – with a twist. From soft furnishings to opulent colours and a variety of textures, I have finally got my bedroom to how I want it and I couldn’t think of a better post for today, especially after I have just returned home from the Caribbean to the freezing cold weather of Manchester and dived straight into my bed. Winter is all about being cosy and warm so whilst I’m snuggled up in my fleecy pyjamas, wrapped up in my waffle throw and writing this post, I thought I would write about my winter home comforts and the cosy bedding from Yorkshire Linen that I’m tucked up in.

My inspiration for my bedroom has come from hotel rooms, and I think I have managed to create a warm and inviting space that is not only for sleeping but for spending time in. I love nothing more than curling up on my bed and watching a film with Thomas, before slipping under the duvet for a good night’s sleep. I’ve been trying to replicate the comfort of hotels by treating myself to a thick mattress, a heavy tog duvet and soft bedding. I invested in a decent mattress around three years ago and it has been one of my best purchases to date. Memory foam topped, deep and comfortable, it has not only made sure that my back problems have been alleviated but I get a good night sleep, every night. I also invested in a great duvet and bought a 13.5 tog duck feather and goose down duvet from Marks and Spencer. Although it might feel a bit warm in the summer, the feather filled duvet regulates my temperature and keeps me warm but without getting over heated in the night. Of course, in the winter, it is an absolute godsend and I can be often found making excuses why I shouldn’t be getting out of bed as it’s just too nice under the covers. Memory foam top pillows and box wall pillows make sure my head is propped up enough for me to sleep comfortably as well as have something to lean against for those times that I am just relaxing in my room.

In most hotels that I stay in, the bedding is the most luxurious high thread count cotton sheets, in a bright white. It’s safe to say that I have had a definite influence from this and I have only been using white bedding for the last few years. I love white bedding as it’s crisp and inviting and looks sleek and sophisticated. My latest set from Yorkshire Linen is the Warwick 200 count, Hotel inspired set that comes with two pillowcases. I was really impressed with the quality from the moment that I opened the packet that it came in. The stripes are discreet but stylish and feel almost like satin. The proof of a good duvet set to me is bedding that doesn’t make you feel all hot and sweaty but keeps the temperature steady. I also want to feel nice soft cotton against my skin without it being scratchy and harsh. There’s nothing better than getting into clean bedding and I’m really pleased with just how well that the Yorkshire Linen set washes. I’m not the kind of girl who irons their bedding, I mean who has time for that? So, I’m really pleased to say that after washing and tumble drying my set, it smoothes out on the bed without the need for an iron.

With the cold weather upon us, I need that extra warmth, especially when getting home after an inbound long haul flight. I don’t think I could possibly explain just cold I am when I get home from work, and even in the summer you’ll find me in bed with thermal bed socks and a throw up to my chin just to keep warm. Although the aircraft is warm, the minus 55 degree outsode temperature penetrates me to my bones and it takes me an age to warm back up. Combined with being tired from working through the night, it’s a must for comfort! I decided that a Cotton waffle throw in Slate would look great with my bedroom colour scheme, and aside from being used for decoration when my bed is made, it’s also great for wrapping up in and for an extra layer of warmth when I need it. I love waffle textured fabrics as I think they look really cosy and welcoming and when it’s not being used by myself, I quite often find the cat curled up on the bottom of the bed, snoring away on it.

I’m so happy with the little haven I have made out of my bedroom and I’m really impressed with the products that I have found at Yorkshire Linen. In fact, I really looking forward to updating my bedroom for the Spring season.

Good morning gorgeous people and welcome to the weekend. Although I don’t get chance to have many weekends at home, when I do, I really embrace it. Weekends to me are designed for relaxing, preferably with a good box set whilst snuggled into the corner of my couch whilst scented candles work their magic, leaving a certain ambience. I’ve been burning scented candles and melting tarts for many years, and I have select fragrances for each room. I love the heavier, more sensual fragrances in the bedroom, clean cotton and ocean breeze in the bathroom and the scent of cakes and baking in the kitchen. Having such a wide range of fragrances can get quite costly, however Flamingo Candles have once again cracked it with their new monthly subscription service, The Melt Crowd.

Flamingo Candles The Melt Crowd

For just £10 per month, The Melt Crowd contains eight wax melts, in various fragrances that can be melted for up to 30 hours. Delivered in a box that slips easily through the letterbox, there is no chance that the postman will be unable to deliver your parcel. Inside the June box and out of the eight melts, there was only one fragrance that I had tried, the Mango and Dragonfruit which was one of the new Summer fragrances. The melts are the same amazing quality as the candle and depending on the size of your room, you could probably get away with breaking the melt in half and getting more melt time for your money. I have a large lounge so one melt is adequate for the size of my room, yet half a melt is enough for my smaller bathroom. The June box also comes with a wax burner, if you didn’t already have one.

Flamingo Candles The Melt Crowd

The eight scents are as follows; Daisy, Thai Lime and Mango, Fresh Mown Grass, Pina Colada, Mango and Dragonfruit, Sweet Lime and Cedar, Juicy Clementine and Tropical Coconut and Honey. So far I have melted Tropical Coconut and Honey which smells just like holidays and today I have been melting Daisy, which is one of my personal favourites. According to Flamingo, the first three months worth of boxes will all have scents that haven’t been featured before, however after the three months there may be some repeat scents. I think this is absolutely great as old favourites will be mixed with new fragrances.

Flamingo Candles The Melt Crowd

I’ve had a little browse on the Scent Melts page at the available scents and there are some that I am dying to try. I just love how a simple scent can change the whole mood of the house. I have always enjoyed melting wax tarts and with the Flamingo Candles The Melt Crowd subscription, I will be able to experience a wide range of fragrances without making too big a dent in my purse.

There is a photo that I have that holds a very special place in my heart, a photo of the two most important people in my life, two people who I love very much. Hi Mum! Hi Paula! This photo was taken at my surprise 30th birthday party, of myself, my sister and my mum. I love how blonde we all are, and how we all seem to have co-ordinated our outfits, completely unintentionally! I don’t have a hard copy of this photo, so I have downloaded it from Facebook where my friend had originally uploaded it.

When Canvas Design got in touch and asked if I wanted to try a canvas out, I just knew straight away which picture I was going to use. I was advised that my image needed to be 500kb minimum but my downloaded image was so much lower. A quick tinker on my favourite editing site and I had made my image into a beautiful resolution ready to be sent off. I was quite nervous whilst waiting for it to arrive as I really hoped that the image transferred onto the canvas with no problems. The delivery time was so quick, it wasn’t more than a few days which is perfect, especially if you are ordering last minute gifts. Delivered by a courier who also sent a text with a time slot for delivery, this couldn’t get any better. The package was well wrapped with corrugated card and bubble wrap so damages would be very rare. The moment of truth…eek!

Well, I cried. I actually burst into tears and hugged the canvas to my chest, it’s unreal how good the quality is, and how well it has transferred onto a canvas. The size I received is the 20″ x 16″ which is big but not too big. I originally put it in my lounge however I am contemplating moving it to another room to be displayed more prominently.
