Pretty and pink

We have recently redecorate Laila’s bedroom. After being in our house for 2.5 years, it was well over due. I’m still waiting for a few bits to be put up on the walls. I have a amazing vanity mirror from B&m to go up, same as what we put in Hallies room back in May. 

The prints I got were from a Instagram small business called sweetiepaperie. Frames from good old ikea!

Will also need abit of a clear out and organise over the summer but over all I am so happy with how it’s looking. As is Laila. Hopefully will last her a few years to come.

The redecorating bug has got me!!

It was my 30th birthday recently. My partner an I had planned a weekend to the lakes child free. But instead I decided last minute since we were both child free why not surprise the kids by swapping rooms and making a start on the decorating!! 

Some have questioned my sanity over this, But I had been so excited and had this image in my head of what I wanted for Hallies new room (Marleys old room) I just wanted it to happen as quickly as possible! 

We worked so hard for about 36 hours to swap decorate and build and put it to place. I am so happy with it too! 

Hallies reaction was perfect, She was speechless, her eyes filled up and she hugged me so tight! No way could the lakes have beaten that reaction! 

Can’t wait to get started on Lailas and Marleys now!!

A tidy person in a messy persons body..

Do you ever feel like you need to get more organisation in your life but things feel so hectic you don’t know where to start? That’s how I’m feeling right now too.

But I’ve decided I need to make a start. I saw a Instagram post and a lady had started just by setting herself a room or 2 in the house per day along with a job you always plan to get round to but never quite get there. Keeping your paperwork in some kind of order for example.

I thought this was a good idea as most days of the week I find myself doing pretty much all of the same things and not getting round sorting through cupboards and boxes or reorganizing as much as I would like to. I find myself faffung and riding up after the kids when really they are all more than capable to do most of it themselves. 

So, I am going to make a start. My plan is to make my way though the kitchen and the cupboard downstairs before the end of the weekend, throwing, donating or selling anything that has been left unused for a period of time. May also get to do a bit of shopping for storage solutions. Also will get the kids to do their bit.a bit of responsibility may do them good.  I am hoping that once it’s done we will find the enthusiasm to keep on top of it all. Wish doesn’t always happen I must admit. 2 out of my 3 seem to suffer with this same problem. 

I love my home I really do. I just don’t have the discipline to keep it looking it’s best all day long. Not that it’s messy or dirty, more lived in. I feel that if I had more routine that I would become better at having the best of both… or is that unrealistic? I am unsure. 

I am totally open to suggestions, hints and tips… please help!

Making a house a home..

Just lately i feel like i have grown in confidence. I am more confident in my own likes, wants, needs and style. Especially around our home. 

Recently we had a new sofa delivered and well, I seemed to find so much inspiration out of nowhere. I decided i wanted to move one of the old sofas into the far end of the kitchen to make a little snug space hoping to make the kitchen area more sociable. That meant i also needed a new kitchen table to fit else where in the roon. Still trying to be sensible of course, my mom and I went and had a look around a charity shop to see if i could find the type of things I was looking for. I found a table i liked and got it home ready to be painted up. I love the results.

I also picked up some other bits and bobs too.

Not sure where this happy sign will go yet but I really want it somewhere around the house. 

I have almost finished redoing my bedroom too. I will share with you soon.
