A Happy Easter Vignette


I have just spent my entire day trying to log onto the internet... finally the lovely woman from HP figured it out for me! I think I may have to do a post on that soon, in case any one else is having similar issues. I have a million post ideas coming your way too including a bunch of new finds and treasures, photos and even much needed desk/office makeover!

Beautiful Skincare Oils Giveaway & Review

beautiful-am-pm
 
Woohoo! I’m doing a giveaway of these beautiful “Beautiful” skincare oils by Trusted Health Products. They’re all vegan, natural, not tested on animals and best yet I’m giving away a bottle of the AM moisturiser to 3 lucky winners (internationally) so you’re in with a great shot!
The bottles come with your own name. Mine of course say Beautiful Kirsty! There are also Dudes versions available that say ‘The Man’.
 
Before I get into the nitty gritty, these oils are amazing. I’m a big fan of skincare oils and have tried everything! These are my new favourites! They’re completely natural and feel fantastic. They really do what they say they do and best of all they smell absolutely wonderful! I have been using these a LOT!
My favourite thing about them is the ingredients list. It’s fantastic, everyone knows exactly what’s in them, they’re just simple, earthy products that work.

Indoor Garden

Indoor kitchen garden, lavender, chilli, succulent, curry, tin, thyme, rosemary

As some of you are aware, Andi and I have been experimenting with indoor gardening (as well as outdoor gardening). Check out this post about our hanging indoor kitchen planters. So far we’ve been having a lot of luck especially with succulents. Andi planted some in a Keen’s Curry tin. We also have a chilli plant, some lavender, rosemary, thyme and mint in the kitchen.

How to Decorate your Home with Manchester

Decorating your home with manchester like cushions, throws, linen and towels should require more thought than most people give it. Instead of purchasing whatever’s in front of you at the time, when you put a little effort in, it can go a long way. Here are my tips for decorating with manchester in every room of the house.

 

How to Decorate your Living Room with Manchester

Unless you’re decorating entirely from scratch (who has the means or the time?) you should pick pillows and throws that match your decor. If you have a neutral palette in the living room, for example white walls and cream sofas, then you might want to think about adding pops of colour using cushions or throws in bold prints or contrasting tones. If your lounge room is already bold, tone it down with more muted accessories.

How to Decorate your Bedroom with Manchester

Decorating your bedroom with manchester is probably the trickiest, again if you already have some staple pieces then choose complimentary accents. Your bedroom is the most important relaxation space in the home. Choose a palette that accomplishes this with calming colours like sea greens, blues, creams and whites. A palette like this with a few bold accents is perfect for most of us, however if you have a larger than average bedroom then feel free to go a little more wild with colour. Bold prints and bright colours can make a room feel cluttered and small so only choose a lot of daring red if you’re lucky enough to have a big space.

How to Decorate your Bathroom with Manchester

The purity of using white linen in a bathroom never fails. Stack towels together in an open space to create an atmosphere of relaxation, just like at the spa. This will work no matter the style of your bathroom. However, if keeping those whites white is too much to bear, storage can be your best friend. Only have out the towels and floor mats in use (please colour coordinate) for an effortless fix.

How to Decorate your Kitchen with Manchester

While I still prefer those beautiful whites, the kitchen is definitely the easiest space to go all out with bold colours, prints and patterns such as this Cora, Ladelle floral pattern.

If your bold-coloured kitchen appliances are kept out on display, it’s easy to coordinate your kitchenware palette from the fashionable linen ranges available. Matching your tea towels, pot holders and aprons is easy, just stay on theme and your kitchen will always look good.

If there’s no obvious colour scheme in place with silver or white appliances, again it couldn’t be easier, simply choose your favourites. If you have an open plan home, try and match your kitchen linen with your living room manchester to keep a great flow throughout your house.

Christmas Decorating {Christmas Tree and Stockings}

christmas tree

Depending on what kind of blog reader you are, you’ll either think I’m super fast or really slow with my Christmas decorating. Well here you have MY first ever Christmas tree in my new home. I have been very excited about getting the tree and made Andi rather unhappy with me by choosing the largest, most expensive tree I could find but I just HAD to!

I’m not a big fan of plastic ornaments so I decorated with burlap ribbon, red and white ribbon and made big red bows out of red satin. I also made little white clay heart tags, there’s a house and a cat to come too and of course a tutorial!

christmas stockings

I have always loved the idea of hanging stockings and Andi decided some stockings would look great hanging from the lights either side of our antique green mirror and of course I went full steam ahead with the idea, searching for hours to find the perfect Christmas stockings. I got these beautiful socks from Etsy seller, Ben Loves Birdy. These are Pottery Barn red cable knit stockings that were personalised with our names. I love them!
