Aspace Charterhouse Bunk Bed

Aspace is an online shop that offers children’s bedroom furniture and mattresses as well as bedding and accessories. I’m a big fan of Aspace and when they ceased trading back February of this year, I was pretty sad about it. However, they’re now back in business and have been since June 16! Yay! I’m so pleased that they’re back in business as I truly love their range of furniture! I was lucky to have the opportunity to work with the wonderful people over at Aspace back in November 2015 when I reviewed their Fairford Wardrobe, and again in March 2016 when I… [Read More]

The future of furniture shopping

Furnitures an important part of any home. Not only is it practical, and pretty vital, I mean where would you sit without a sofa?, eat without a dining table? etc, but it’s also important because furniture can really make a room feel homely and modern. The thing is, in between work, looking after the kids and nursery runs, I don’t always have time to go out shopping for new furniture. For me the future of furniture shopping is online. You can browse when the kids are in bed, at your own pace and in peace and quiet. I mean, who… [Read More]

We’ve just moved into our new house and that means we have a lot work to do to make our new house feel like a home.

Introducing Oak Furniture Land's Nursery Range

Knowing what furniture to buy when you’re expecting a baby can be quite over whelming. From deciding what style of cot to get to whether or not you should invest in one that can later be used as a cot bed. You’ll also need to think about what type of mattress will go into your little ones cot and also decide if a changing table is something worth investing in. As a mum of twins I knew that I wanted to buy cot beds for the simple reason that they’d last a long time, save me from having to invest… [Read More]

Butterbee Cottage Dolls House Review

When I was a child I had a dolls house. It was pink, made of wood and had lights that actually lit up! It was quite small, but I absolutely loved it!  There’s something really enchanting and magical about dolls houses. I did buy our girls one a while ago, but they were far too young for it at the time and it ended up being coloured in with felt tips and it pretty much fell apart so we binned it. Now that our girls are three and a half years old they’re more than ready for a dolls house…. [Read More]

New Home, New Garden, New Furniture!

If you’ve been following me on twitter or if you’ve been reading my blog lately then you probably know that we moved into our new home last week. Our previous landlord decided it was time to sell up, which meant that it was time for us to move on and find a new home. I always say that everything happens for a reason and I genuinely believe that, even if at times I don’t know what that reason is. It seems that the reason behind our recent move was to enable our family to have a better home and with… [Read More]

Space Saving Bathroom Ideas

When you live in a ground floor maisonette space can be a bit of an issue, especially when you have small children wandering around. Our home is all on one level and whilst this does have it’s good points – the lack of stairs is great because we don’t have to worry about our twins running up or even falling down them, but on the other hand space can be an issue. When it comes to designing our home we have a lot of space saving storage options, but now that we have to decorate our bathroom we have a… [Read More]

Saving Money When Decorating your Home

Saving money when decorating your home is pretty simple, provided you follow some clear guidelines. It’s important to be realistic about what you want to do and the level of your skills. Think carefully about the areas of your home which require the most attention. Perhaps you want to start with the first area that guests will see when they walk through your door, or refresh your bedroom or kitchen. Whichever room you decide to focus on, think about how long the project might take and prepare yourself for potential challenges and delays.
