Debenhams : Gift buying this Christmas #DebenhamsSecretSanta

I can’t tell you how excited I am to write this post. It was only a couple of weeks ago now, that I was asked to get involved in a Secret Santa gift exchange with some of my fellow bloggers.  Sixteen of us in total, all with a budget of £80, and all of being let loose on the Debenhams website.  I had no problem at all {waits with bated breath and bites nails} buying for my recipient, well I say no problem there was an incredible amount amazing choice on the site, and £80 is a lot of money, if you get it wrong, so I was a little nervous. I am very happy with my choices though and can’t wait to reveal myself. As a little hint, the person I bought for, I have met in real life, I may have even got a little hot and bothered with them once…

I have now received my presents, all 5 of them, and I really couldn’t be more thrilled! Continue Reading

Living Room Makeover : Sofa So Good

Living Room Makeover : Sofa So Good

| November 14, 2012 | 21 Comments

So, in my quest for a brighter more functioning living room, I have revealed MY DESK and TOY STORAGE. I would like to now show you my new sofas:Sofa, Sofa

We decided to go for a large sofa, big enough for 3/4 people and a small sofa, which comfortably seats two.

After much deliberation we plumped for leather again, as its easier to keep clean with a preschooler. I say this whilst hiding felt tips from the little minx!

I purchased them from Sofa Sofa. A friend, had recommended the company to me, as being great value for money, but fantastic quality.  I was really, very impressed with the company as a whole.  They communicated with me via email, and even gave me a courtesy call, to let me know they had my order.  Very impressive.  They arrived exactly at the date we had prearranged.  I had asked them to delay the delivery slightly as I wasn’t ready for them.

The delivery men were friendly but professional unpacking the sofas, which were wrapped in cloth as well as plastic to protect them, and taking this away with them. They asked me to take my time and check the sofas were to my satisfaction. Such a fantastic experience, I would wholeheartedly recommend them. This is not in any way a sponsored post, as I paid the full retail price for them, I just wanted to share my experience.

I love the sofas, as the are quite vintage looking, with the low slung arms, but classic in shape. They are extremely  comfortable (which I was worried about, as I was buying them online) and in a warm but light colour.

I have bought new cushions too.   A very subdued collection for me, in golds and teal. The gold cushions were both from Debenhams. The cushion behind, is by Betty Jackson and has a gold thread running through the woven fabric.  The second is from John Rocha and is described as gold foil velour.

Debenhams Cushions

I have included two teal cushions, a spotty one, that can been seen on the above photograph, of the two seater, from John Lewis.  Finally, I have the cushion below, which I actually won in a competition. It’s from Liberty, and is hand painted, and made of slub silk.  I love it, I don’t think it is made any longer, but I love that it doesn’t match anything else, makes it even more special.

I do have throws, that we use too for when it gets a little chilly in the evening, but I would love to have some teal ones.  They are on my wish list at the moment, I’m open to suggestions, if you happen to see any snuggly ones, please let me know.

So there you have my two new Sofas and cushions. My next post on my living room makeover will be about an piece of funiture, that I have been lucky enough to review from a fantastic company called Fashion for Home.  I have included them in a recent I Love Mondays feature.
