Last week I wrote a post about staying safe while doing DIY round the house (you can read it here if you missed it), this week I wanted to chat about some really easy DIY projects you can do round the home.
At the moment we have several issues with trying to make our house look homely (in my eyes anyway):
If you read my blog a lot, you might have seen I wrote a post recently about some of the home goals I want to achieve this year (if you’re new to the blog, then hi, and you can catch up here). I’m looking forward to getting started on the projects I have (you know, once the weather gets better); except for one major flaw in my plan. I’m so clumsy. And until I moved in with J, I wasn’t particularly savvy at staying safe while attempting DIY projects! But he’s taught me a hell of a lot in the last three years.
If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know that I’ve been living with J for almost 3 years now. A medal for him for putting up with me. And Bear, who destroys the occasional home furnishing.
In that time we’ve done a few bits to the house such as; putting the heating and flooring down in the dining room so we could use it, moved some furniture around and bought new sofas and bedside tables.
Rather than doing a December favourites, I thought I’d do a general round-up of my year and share some of the lovely things that happened to me in 2016 (most of them blog-related!) 🙂
I love a good bit of mail. Especially when it’s cute mail as opposed to the usual bills and junk mail. Although I do love those Papa Johns flyers that come through the door! Because Papa Johns is the one!
Anyway, Sophie from I Just Love It got in touch a while ago to let me know about their Christmas campaign #IJLIGiftofGiving and that they wanted to work with bloggers to do a gift swap. Not only that but my gorgeous, lovely BBFF Jemma was going to be swapping with me.
It’s only that bloody time of year, well technically, it’s not quite but who’s going to want a gift guide a week before Christmas? No one, that’s who!
I’ve compiled a list of gift ideas I think you might love for your nearest and dearest. Or yourself. Treat yo’self, it’s Christmas!!
Where the hell did September go? I’m sure a couple of weeks ago it was still light out about 8:30, now it’s pitch black. Autumn is definitely here now.
To be honest, when I got a NUTRIBULLET*, I thought I’d make a couple of smoothies and it would go in the cupboard to die. You know, like the rest of the crazy fads we all own; the toastie maker which is great till you have to clean it, the random popcorn maker you got one Christmas because you’re “difficult to buy for” and the good old cafetiere that no one has time for. Because hello kettle!
I didn’t expect that for the past month, J and I would actually be using it every day!
Since trying courgetti spaghetti at Bella Italia, I’ve been dying to make my own. So when Savisto got in touch and asked if I wanted to test out one of their kitchens gadgets, I knew it had to be the Spiralizer.
I love flowers, they’re just so happy. You know what I mean, right? We don’t have fresh flowers enough in our house and that’s something I want to try and change this year.
