What’s my Home style? #MyInteriorStyling

Our home will never be a showroom home, but it will forever be cosy, lived in and filled with laughter and love. That I am sure of. We have lived here, in this house, for almost eight years and we have painted some rooms once. We’ve never got round to changing the carpets and if I’m honest, the lino in the kitchen has to go. But even with her imperfections, we have made this slightly rough looking house, a home. I have styled our home little by little – a bit of bunting here, some fairy lights there, a gorgeous…

Reminiscing our Wedding day with Hello Canvas | Review

This September, the Husband and I will celebrate our second wedding anniversary. Two whole years of marriage. Some people say you’d get less for murder and on some days I’d be inclined to agree! But most days I could not be more thankful for this man of mine in my life. He is considerate {much more than me}, very romantic and has the patience of an actual saint. Some days, when I’m losing my mind with a whirlwind of kids either asking me for help with homework or bickering over who can sit on that seat on the sofa, he…

Building dens with the DFS Sofa Fort Campaign

Building forts have to be up there with every child’s favorite past time. In fact, whatever the age, you have to admit, building dens and playing in them are pretty fun. So, when DFS sofas got in touch and challenged us to get involved in their sofa fort campaign, how could we refuse.  We try to make time during our crazy family days to spend actual quality time together. No TV, no homework needing to be done, no tech babysitters, just good old fashioned hanging out time as a family and teaming together to make this very simple sofa fort was just…

Football theme bedroom makeover

Around two years ago I remember finally giving my youngest son a room he could love and be proud of. Before it was just a shell, nothing really going on, no solid theme and no personal touches. His love back then was marvel because Iron man and Thor were his things, his idols. He was a huge fan but two years have passed and all of a sudden he’s evolved into a different boy with different passions. That new passion is football and his love for this sport came out of nowhere. Completely out of the blue. I have three sons…

Styling up our Home with Desenio framed prints

Styling your home is such a fun thing to do and it doesn’t have to cost you a fortune either. I am on of those women who are guilty of scrolling through Pinterest, thinking to myself, “Oooh that’s perfect, let’s do that!” or “Aaah yes, that will go nicely there!”. But in reality, never really getting around to doing it. Does that go for yourself too? There are so many awesome places online that sell prints of all kinds of styles, however, one of my favourites is without a doubt this online Swedish retailer: Desenio.   Desenio has such a great range…

A new home addition {in the shape of an armchair…}

For a long time, in fact, ever since we moved into our home there has been a nook in our living room that has been craving an armchair. However, over the years, it has been a home to changing tables for new babies, Ikea cookers for the toddler, a dolls house and most recently a train table. Everything but an armchair. So you can only imagine my excitement when I was approached to review one from Lakeland Furniture. It was fate. Finally, my living room nook would home an item of furniture that it was meant for.

10 ways to add a touch of Spring to your home

Spring time is without a doubt one of my favorite times of the year. The gray skies and dull aura of the world begin to fade as the last remnants of Winter disappear. As that happens the lands are replaced with bright dashes of yellow, purples and creams. Everything just looks so bright, fresh and colourful that it’s definitely a true blessing, especially after the kind of Winter we’re used too!  So I decided to put together a little post including 10 ways to add a touch of Spring to your home. Add Flower, flowers everywhere! I love flowers and…

Interiors & Flooring with Winter in mind.

Being a Mother and having a home to build for my family, I must admit my only downfall is that I’ve never been gifted with the knack of interior design. I’m a very ‘wing-it’ and ‘try’ to make everything go together in one way or another, kinda person. Impressively, I seem to pull it off every time {as much as that amuses me!} but it is all completely accidental. I would love to have the natural gift to make our home look like something from a magazine article {and the money!}, but that’s just not us. However with the festive…

Throwing a dinner party with Homebase

I’m going, to be honest, I’ve never thrown a dinner party before even though I’ve always wanted too. So when Homebase kindly sent me out some vouchers to spend in store on whatever I could possibly need to host a dinner party, I decided to give it a go. Going into my local Homebase store in Newtownabbey felt pretty exciting for a few reasons. I’d never shopped in their before and I really loved browsing through their gorgeous products. With never having thrown a dinner party before, I wasn’t too sure what to get so I thought I would start at…
