Recent Pins : Ensuite Inspiration

Pinterest is such an amazing source of inspiration for projects around the home.  I’ve just completed renewing my en-suite, so have been using Pinterest to source ideas, and hatch plans.  I thought I would share with you some of my recent pins.  Hopefully next week, I can show you what the ensuite looked like before, and how it looks now.

Finishing Touches : Vintage Cutlery

I thought I would include a series on the blog about finishing touches.  Having bought a house, you then might need to rennovate, or simply decorate it, you may be lucky enough to just need to move in.   From this point though, you want to take it from a house to a home.  Give it some personality, and fill it with things that you love.

The Ana Garden : Easy Grow from B & Q

We  love our garden, and love spending time in it.  As the temperature is warming, we have started to spend weekends in it, and begin the cycle of new planting ready for the summer.  Last years freshly planted bulbs have started to grow, it’s so exciting for the girls seeing them pop up randomly around the garden. We want to try to attract more butterflies and bees to the garden this year, so we will be looking at adding more flowers.

This weekend we planted some Begonia’s (semperflorens – rainforest mix) in a bed at the front of the house.  We are testing out the new technology easyGrow™ from B&Q.

Finishing Touches : Childrens Rug

For this finishing touch, I wanted to talk about children’s rugs.  The final touch to a children’s room that can pull it all together, but also be so useful.  We have been given a Zug to review. Zugs – carpets for kids, a family run company, have a fantastic and high quality selection available.  I wanted to pick the humorously named Gary the Cloud or Monster Poo, but was over ruled by the 4 year old. ;) Continue Reading

Origins : Recommendations

When I had my Origins facial last month, I was recommended a couple of items to try, that I hadn’t so added into my routine so far.   So thought I would give them a mention, and my thoughts on them so far. Continue Reading

I Love Mondays : Bunny Love

Easter shopping is a pleasure at the online shop Hedgehog.   Full of Easter Goodies, some of which you can see below. I think my favourite has to be the white sugar bunny, what a great alternative to chocolate for an Easter egg hunt! Or how about having the baking set, as the prize at the end of the hunt.
