Which Flooring Should You Use In Your Home?

When decorating your home, the first two areas you tend to focus on are the walls and the floor. The type of flooring you choose can have an impact on the overall appearance and feel of your home but also ties into practicality.


For instance, you may be looking to sell your home or rent it out for a buy to let purpose, in which case you would need to avoid flooring that gets damaged or stained easily. To help you decide which flooring is best to use, take a look at this helpful guide.

Updating Your Childs Room By Buying Just One New Thing!

We've all had times where we've wanted to transform the kid's bedroom/s, but we've just not had the funds nor time to do it, or maybe it's the children themselves who keep going on and on about a bedroom makeover, not understanding that bills need to be paid, school trips need to be funded, and another birthday is creeping up.


It leaves us as parents feeling guilty, we want nothing more than to give our darling children the makeover they so desire, but with lack of funds, or simply the lack of time, it's hard. I'm quite lucky with my own son, he doesn't like too much change, and hasn't asked for a new bedroom every year, unlike me when I was a child. If I had my own way, I could've easily had new a new bedroom set up every 3-6 months, I was always wanting a change!

Upcycling Your Kitchen & Bathroom Tiles - On A Budget!

Being a blogger means I take pictures every single day, which means hundreds, if not thousands of pictures are taken every single week. Not all pictures are uploaded anywhere straight away, some are kept for months later, and some need hours of editing work done to them before they can be posted anywhere. Some are instantly posted to a platform or two instantly though - if you're on my personal Facebook then you know how much I love a good old curry for dinner!


One of the main places I take photos is in my kitchen, its where the most amount of natural light comes in, and although it's small it's quite spacious, and the tiles can be a good backdrop - that is when they're looking picture good of course! My tiles get wiped down most days because splashes and drops happen when your cooking, and thankfully they come up sparkling clean, the grout however.... well that's a whole new story isn't it, and I know I'm not alone!

A Day In The #LifeOfGerms

Cleaning - whether we love it, or hate it, it's something we all have to do, every single day of our lives in one aspect or another. We may even clean without even realising it (giving the kids a quick wipe over for example, or picking up toys!), because it's just become such a natural part of our day to day lives. Whilst I could never sign up to be a cleaner, well unless it was the only way to make ends meet, I don't actually mind cleaning up.


There are chores I hate more than others of course, like washing up for example, because no matter what I use to protect my hands, the washing up liquid always finds a way to irritate my psoriasis, which sadly takes over 70% of my hands and fingers, and I can quite easily leave cobwebs alone for weeks, afraid that if I try and get them with the feather duster, a huge hairy spider is going to come and attack me, even the babies are giants to me!

Getting Amazing Deals on Home Heating Oil

Although we really shouldn't be thinking of heating in May, unfortunately with the typical cold and rainy weather, many of us do have our heating on, not only to keep ourselves and our homes warm, but also as a way to dry our clothes.


Did you know, lots of areas in Ireland aren’t connected to the gas grid? So many householders use heating oil to warm their homes. Using home heating oil is already a pretty cheap way to stay warm, but if you’re doubly smart with it, you can cut your annual costs even further.
