A Kitchen Update with Samsung

Post contains gifted item from Samsung

At 15 years old my old American style fridge freezer was on it’s last legs. The fresh water dispenser and ice making machine had long since packed up, the lights no longer worked, all the door shelves had broken and the fridge seemed to freeze everything whilst the freezer didn’t quite manage to freeze anything. Add in to the mix that every so often I would wake up to a flooded kitchen  (how does that even happen with the water supply is turned off) and well, it had come to the end of it’s lifespan. You can imagine then just how extremely grateful, stupidly excited and over the moon I was when Samsung asked me if I would like to try one of their American fridge freezers and talk a little about how it helps in our day to day life. So come and  join me on a kitchen update with Samsung. Continue Reading…

Trying Out The HP 14-dk0008na 14″ Laptop with AO

HP Laptop Review with AO

*POST CONTAINS GIFTED ITEMS* Did you know that support for Windows 7 ends on the 14th of January 2020? I had no idea until a notification popped up on my laptop! Queue panic mode. Without a laptop I will be lost. My blog is my little space in the world where I get to be me. When I write I get to switch off and immerse myself in the enjoyment of wittering on. You can only imagine the rush of fear that this may be taken away from me. Add in that my old laptop is at least 10 years old! Half the buttons aren’t working anymore and one of the hinges is broken. Along with it getting so hot after half an hour that you can spot weld with it. It is time for a new one. So I’ve been trying out the HP 14-dk0008na 14″ Laptop with AO.COM Continue Reading…

how to make an envelope cushion

How To make an envelope cushion

Cushions! We all love them. They are the finishing touch to a room. Adding not only comfort but texture. They somehow bring a scheme together. And make a room feel finished. But what if, like me, you don’t have an endless budget to achieve the look that’s in your head? It’s much cheaper to make your own. Fabric can be bought very cheaply on the internet. And you can often pick up an off cut of designer fabric on Ebay large enough to make a cushion for a fraction of the cost from the manufacturer. So today I’m showing you how to make an easy peasy envelope (no zip required) cushion. I mean these are so easy my dog Buster could make one. Well if he had thumbs that is!! Continue Reading…

And secondly am always on a budget and so when Christmas comes around I have to think outside of the box when it comes to my decorations.
