Today, I’m going to show you how to create your own outdoor sanctuary in less than ten steps.
The Scandinavians are masters at creating cosy outdoor spaces.
They know the importance of getting outside and enjoying fresh air, but like us here in the UK the weather isn’t always too inviting!
Let’s look at how they do it:
The Ultimate Wedding Gift Guide: How To Choose The Best Ever Wedding Gifts That Every Couple Will Love
Not only did you get real old fashioned post through the letterbox but it was an exquisitely beautiful wedding invitation from one of your besties with a weblink to their bride and groom gift registry.
But we’ve all been here - there’s nothing more disappointing than logging onto a special friend’s wedding gift list to find all the interesting and affordable gifts have been nabbed already and you’re left to choose between the cheese grater and the toilet brush!
You don’t want your BFF to struggle to remember if you even bought her a gift for her special day, right?
In fact, you don't want to admit it out loud, but secretly you want her to remember yours as the best ever wedding gift don't you?
Do you dread going home at the end of the day or do you dream of returning to your calm and welcoming retreat all day? Today I'm going to help you to create a home so full of hygge health & happiness that you won't want to even walk out the door in the morning!*
A new season means new materials and patterns which, when combined with stylish timeless pieces, will easily help update your home for 2019's new opulent looks.*
When temperatures drop and winter days start to get shorter there’s nothing I love more than getting cosy and hibernating under the covers in the bedroom all weekend long (or for a full two weeks at Christmas!)
I’m guessing you’re happy to do the same at this time of year, am I right?
There’s no need to totally overhaul your whole room to feel the full hygge benefits of snuggling up with your loved ones (including the furry variety!)
Here are some simple ideas that you can use in your own home to feel the winter love.*
Most decor trends change over time but our prehistoric need to get cosy and hibernate during the colder, darker months often comes back to the Nordic style.
Believe it or not, Nordic countries are swathed in darkness for up to 20 hours per day during the colder months so their people are experts at embracing the winter - slowing down, building nests and using the long nights to spend quality time with friends and family or of course, supporting their mental health with hygge type activities such as knitting and crochet!
There’s plenty in this lifestyle for the rest of us to learn from, after all research has consistently shown that the Danes are the happiest population on the planet!
So how do you create that northern retreat where you can snuggle up with your loved ones and switch off from the stresses of every day life?*
Do you think in pink or do you run away from rose?
Not just for little girls rooms, blush and powder pink provide a more grown up approach to using the colour and offer a more sophisticated look.
Blush pink is the the colour of the moment if my blanket sales are anything to go by this year.
This rosy-hued shade can be both fresh and cosy depending on how you style it. Given its versatility it’s a trend you can definitely get behind.
We’re not talking 70’s velvet filled boudoirs here either. Blush Pink makes a great accent shade that fits with almost all colour schemes and, styled correctly, can make your home look fresh, modern and oh so grown up.
So whether you’re looking to transform an entire room, or just add a rosy statement piece, let me show you how to easily mix this on trend shade into your home*
The summer holidays are in full swing - woohoo!
While you're dreaming of which flavour ice cream you'll have first and just how many different cocktails is reasonable to try in one day, I've got your holiday accessories styling sorted.
Are you in the market for a holiday bag that will work with any outfit and for any occasion?
This week we have been talking to Louise Daniel, founder of the #thinksmalluk movement and AndSoToShop website.
As a small business owner herself she went looking for a targeted platform to sell her wares. After approaching various huge bridal blogs and marketplaces, she felt that her business would be lost among all the other suppliers featured on these sites and that they weren’t specifically tailored to support small hand-makers.
She therefore decided to do things differently and champion Britain's best microbusinesses. Louise believed that if she could help suppliers to grow and nurture their businesses, they would have time to create unique, beautiful and tailored pieces.
