Renaissance Chalk Paints.

Rejuvenate transform and upcycle furniture with the Ideal World exclusive, Renaissance Chalk Paints.

Renaissance Chalk Paints are the easiest paints to use for giving old pieces of furniture a new lease of life– this kind of paint can be applied to most surfaces with very little preparation and no priming.  It has an opaque coverage which hides any blemishes and dries quickly allowing several coats to be applied once dry.  As it is water-based you can simply wash brushes in water and this makes them instantly clean and easy to use. The paints are also easy to mix so you can create the perfect shade to match your home, and you can also thin Chalk Paints with water to create a wash effect which shows the woodgrain through the paint for a ‘distressed’ feel. 

Currently available in four fabulous colours, Renaissance Chalk Paint, allows you to experiment and have fun reworking tired, old furniture - with a classic looking, smooth to the touch flat matte finish. The versatile paint can be applied to various types of wood, including pine, MDF and plywood, as well as metal and ceramics. Surfaces should be clean, dry and free from grease prior to application, but the fantastic ability of chalk paint is that it can be applied on top of previous paint finishes. Depending on the look of your project you can build up layers of the same colour or contrasting colours, when the paint has dried the layers of paint can be sanding back for a truly unique shabby chic look.

Don’t forget you can watch the 
Renaissance Chalk Paint TV Show over on Ideal World TV (Sky channel 654, Freeview 22, Virgin 747, and Freesat 812) on 30th September at 11.00am.

The Evolution Of Ice Cream Vans!

If you've never had a 99' from the ice cream man, or even a slush puppy, an oyster or ice lolly, then you must be a robot, because everyone's visited the ice cream man at least once in their lives, even if it was for a pick'n'mix or packet of crisp!

I remember having a friend round for tea one day after school when I was younger, and my parents said we could have something from the ice cream van when it was due to come round. Sure enough, as the ice cream man pulled up, as he does every day in the same spot with his ice cream van, we heard the sound of his tune playing to notify us he was there!

I called to my parents who gave me and my friend some money, and we went over the road to get ourselves a treat. Whilst waiting in the queue, my friend looked quite sad so I asked her what was wrong, she told me, that her parents had told her, that when the ice cream van plays its tune, it means the ice cream has ran out!

Well being a child myself I didn't really know what to say to my friend, so I just changed the subject by telling her what my favourite lollies were, including the banana and cherry brandy! Coming across the infographic below from Van Monster has brought back more than just this childhood memory though!

It's brought back memories of picnics with the whole family, days out and of course, Spud's first time of having a 99 from the ice cream van himself!

Until next time,
Jada x

Unique Young Mum's Blogiversary.
Competition #53
Win a Chewable Toothbrush and Teether worth £4.99 from Brush-Baby!

Brush-Baby was inspired by Dominique Tillen's little girl who chewed her toothbrush. With a sister for a dentist, Dominique was well aware how important it was to keep her little girl's baby teeth clean, and her gums healthy, but tooth-brushing time could be a real battle! Dominique's little girl would chew on her toothbrush, if Dominique could get it into her mouth at all!



So Dominique created her first product, the Brush-Baby Chewable Toothbrush, known as the Brush-Baby, it was an immediate success and is now sold worldwide! Brush-Baby have now gone on to develop a range of dental-care product with babies, toddlers and young children in mind.



The Chewable Toothbrush and Teether is perfect for teething toddlers and those who won't brush their teeth! The award winning silicone brush helps clean teeth and gums, whilst also soothing the teething gum whilst being chewed. Recently featured on ITV1's This Morning programme, it can be used with or without toothpaste for cleaning teeth. The product can be cooled in the fridge, or used with teething gel to soothe teething gums.

Suitable for ages 10 months to 3 years!

It's unique shape fits little mouth correctly and reaches molar teeth (back teeth) and gums. Brush-Baby's Chewable Toothbrush is made of the highest grade medical silicone so you know it's safe for your toddler to chew on. Dishwasher and steriliser safe up to 180 degrees and BPA free! 



I have two Chewable Toothbrushes's to give away to two lucky winners! One in pink and one in clear, unfortunately I am unable to favour colours for the winners in case of the same choice being selected!

Making Your Home Hallway Welcoming.

When you open your front door your showing guest, or even them unwanted door knockers, one of the main parts of your home - your hallway. It's not just the skirting boards that you need to make sure are clean, but also the presentation as well, if you want a good image portrayed to you.

Hallways are the first thing guest will see when you open your front door to them, unless you're one of those people who use your back door or side door as the door guest enter through that is! There's not much you can do with a hallway, but there are somethings you can do!

One: Plain, but Clean Decorated Walls.

One of the first things I look at when I enter someone's home is their skirting boards, I'm forever having to clean mine and I do wonder if other's are the same. I think this stems back to when I was a child who had no confidence to look up to the person we was visiting, however I'd look down and stare at the white skirting boards. Since becoming an adult, I've made sure mine are always clean, or at least I tell myself so!

Two: Make A Sideboard a Reception Desk.

Who said reception desk are just for businesses? I'm not saying have someone sat behind it with a phone and computer waiting to take your visitor's name to give them a visitor pass, but a reception desk with a few family snaps in pretty frames and a bunch of fresh or fake flowers always appeal to the eye! You can pick up an oak sideboards for cheaper than you can imagine by hunting around, and transform it into a major part of your home!

Three: Wall Quotes.

Many of us use quotes on a day to day basis, I'm forever saying ain't no body got time for that when I'm faced with a task I simply do not want to carry out - like the ironing every morning, although I still do it anyway! Get a wall quote put up on your wall to make your home feel welcoming and friendly, you can pick these up for as little as a few pounds, but the transformation itself will be worth a billion dollars, or pounds as us Brits call our money!

Remember though, your home is your home, and if you love the way you live then why change it? There's a certain extent to catering for your guest, and by law there's nothing you have to do, but as friendliness we offer them a drink and a sit down, but your decorations and furniture is not there for them, it wasn't picked by them and it's not them who lives in your home - its you!

Until next time,

Having A Stress Free Christmas.

With everything becoming more and more trendy nowadays, it's no surprise that many of us Brits have dashed traditions for Easter, Halloween and now even Christmas. If buying a fake tree didn't upset the older generation of your family enough, you better prepare them for the realisation that one Christmas, you may not have a tree at all - fake or real!

With more Britain's working now than ever, it's no surprise that so much Christmas shopping is done online, and as for Christmas Day dinner, so many of us are tired from the lead up to Christmas that hundreds of us will be eating out this year. Let's face it because we all know it, Christmas, no matter how magical and exciting it may be, is still a stressful and very expensive period.

Here below are my five steps on how to do Christmas, without the stress!

--

1: Shop Online.

No time to hit the shops this Christmas? Or maybe no patience to face the car park queues or the smelliest public buses? Then that's no problem, ditching the high street isn't that bad of an idea. The selection of products available online is endless, plus there's the opportunity of finding money saving deals and no queuing in shops that have forgotten summer is well and truly over, it's time to turn that air conditioning off!

2: Buy a 'tree' SHELF!

No time or too tired to go out and buy a tree, to then get home and have to decorate it? Then why not buy a tree shelf? You could even leave the shelf up way after Christmas has passed if you desire! During the festive period, add a festive snow globe, candle and character, and for the other 11 months of the year add whatever you desire!


I personally love this tree shaped shelf from Cox and Cox priced at £45, I can imagine my pretty candles resting their with pine cones during the festive period and maybe even some mistletoe, but saying goodbye to Christmas means I can place a special photo and my favourite candle there instead!

3: Don't Cook Christmas Dinner!

You've cooked for the last however many years, don't you think it's time you give yourself and the oven a break? Take the stress out of the big day by booking in at a local restaurant, don't worry about defrosting the turkey or how much washing up you've got to do! Local restaurants around me are taking deposits now, so get looking now if you want a stress free crimbo!

4: Select the Gift Wrap Option.

Many high street shops and online retailers give you the option of gift wrapping the product you're buying, saving you the much needed time. I'm one of those sad in their 20s females who loves wrapping presents! I do try to make them all pretty with bows and pretty tags, but I admit it takes a good 30 minutes per present, who has that kind of time in 2015!?

5: Start Saving Now For Christmas 2016!

Yep, you read that right, it doesn't matter that we've not even sat down to eat our Christmas pudding for this year just yet, just make sure you start saving for Christmas 2016 because sure enough prices are going to get more expensive as they do every year! That's including the local bus and train fares too if you're like me and still don't own even the pinky part of your driver's license!

--

There we have it, my quirky, but totally honest way of having a stress free Christmas! I'm not going to take out my own advice though, I come from a Christmas loving family that put the tradition in traditional!

Until next time,

Moving Out & Furnishing Your Home Without A Silver Spoon!

When you first move out of your parents home, unless you was born with a silver spoon in your mouth, or had a few thousand pounds saved up, chances are, you'll be moving into a empty home with only the clothes and DVDs you own, along with a few cups your grandparents have kindly donated to your new home, and a portable television unit that's possibly as old as yourself.

I remember when me and Spud first moved out of my dads house, I had a tiny amount of money saved up, but nothing much when it comes to everything you need to buy! I luckily got my main electrical appliances off my mum, like my oven, fridge, and freezer but the rest I had to skimp and save for.

When guest come to visit, they wasn't given the option to seat on a sofa, but instead offered a garden chair from the ones my nan and dad had lent me until I could afford to buy sofas. Don't get me wrong, my parents were more than happy to lend me the money and help where they could, as was other family members, but I didn't want everything handed to me on a plate, and so I dealt with them hard and uncomfortable garden chairs until I had enough to buy my sofas!

I wasn't as thrifty back then as I was nowadays, being broke a few times since adulthood has led me to look for bargains, and be more savvy when it comes to spending money. If there's an item I wan't, you'll be sure to find me searching high and low through results on a search engine trying my best to find the product as cheap as chips - not literally of course!

There are many sites and articles that are informative around if you look for them, there's no point trying to save money if you don't do your research and crumble at the first price you see! There's also no shame in buying second hand, HomeLet have a brilliant money saving article here which advises on four ways how to avoid the shops! It was only from this article that I found out about a police auction site! When the police can't trace down owners of items that they've recovered, they sell them on!

They do say one 'mans' junk is another mans treasure, though I'm a woman and the same applies to me. When I first moved out, I accepted a chest of drawers of a local freecycle, with much appreciation, and in return over the years, I've donated many items to similar sites and charity shops. It's nice to return the favour as month after month I see people posting adverts on them just moving into their own home and having nothing but the clothes on their backs.

Like I said when I started this article, if you wasn't born with a silver spoon or thousands in your bank accounts, you'll basically have nothing, and we've all got to start somewhere!

Remember to do your research when looking for anything! Also don't settle for the first item you see, check out reviews and price compare whenever possible! A penny saved is a penny towards a pound!

Date Nights..♥

Me and Gareth are lucky in the sense that we get to have a date night once a month, but over time you start to notice how expensive date nights can be, so we've decided to try and find other ways to have fun, without the cost. One of our main ideas is a fakeaway at home with a movie, but who want's to cook when you've got a child free evening and night!? Not me, that's for sure!

Sometimes, I wish we lived somewhere else other than Reading, we might not have the city status, but the prices are starting to resemble the capitals prices, although I can't say they're that bad just yet! Take my mum's town for example, she lives in Bude which is in Cornwall, and the cinema prices alone can make savings for a meal for two! Why is it so cheap there, but so expensive here?

Or maybe I'll just move abroad after analysing the infographic below! I can't believe that the cost of a date in Madrid is only £71.40 and that two cinema tickets only cost £17! It's about £25 if not more in Reading! However, two cinema tickets in Singapore cost even less - an amazing £11.45 for two people!

That's it, I'm going to check out the currency exchange and get me a ticket for a plane, I'm not really of course, but whenever I next go abroad I know where is best value for money for a date night, and I also know where to avoid! It just baffles me as to how money works! If one place can do something for pennies, why do others charge pounds!?

Until next time,
