Brands

As part of the RFW Loves section of the blog here I share all my favourite brands. Brands that have an ethos similar to mine. Only affordable, innovative brands who hit the mark appear here though. All thoughts and opinions are my own even if items have been gifted to me.

 

I hope you enjoy getting to know the brands as much as I have. I’m always on the look out for something a little different so if you’re a company or you know of a company that would fit please do reach out and contact me. I’d love to create a little black book of ethical companies who align themselves with the slow movement.

Find Your Style With Schneider Electric

Schneider Electric

This post is sponsored by Schneider Electric.ย  Are you fed up of looking at your light switches and sockets? Perhaps you forget to update them when you last decorated? Or maybe you’re thinking of redecorating right now. Have you remembered to include upgrading your sockets too? After all, nothing lets a room down more than white sockets and switches! From a design perspective it’s a huge no no. Unless of course you’re planning a monochrome scheme and then, well, all’s fair in love and war. The thing is though that sometimes it’s hard to visualise just how a socket or switch is going to look with your decor and that’s where ‘Find Your Style’ from Schneider Electric comes in.

ufurnish A Totally New Way To Shop

dunelm

This post is sponsored by ufurnish. What if I told you there was a new way to shop for furniture? No really. A totally unique way that allows you to find and compare all that is home decor. All in one place. And from over 100 retailers, big and small. From High Street giants to smaller independents like John Lewis, Dunelm and Grace & Grey all in one place for the first time. In a recent survey 74% of people taking part said they find furniture shopping frustrating. Trawling the internet to find the best buy for your bucks is time consuming and not the enjoyable process we initially think it will be. And that is exactly why Deirdre Mc Gettrick founded ufurnish.com, to create a totally new way to search and shop for furniture and home accessories. Continue Reading…

This post is sponsored by Samsung. Father’s Day may have been and gone but in our home it’s all about making my husbands day that little more special.

Samsung RS8000 RS68N8230B1/EU American Fridge Freezer review

Samsung RS8000 RS68N8230B1EU American Fridge Freezer review

This post is sponsored by Samsung Home Appliances.ย Well I’ve been using my Samsung RS8000 RS68N8230B1/EU American Fridge Freezer for a couple of months now and thought it about time that I did a review. It’s so hard isn’t it, deciding on which product or brand to go for with big ticket items. Especially when you are purchasing online and can’t see or touch it. My old fridge freezer if you didn’t know was also American style but after many years of sterling service it was giving up the ghost. Slowly but surely feature after feature broke until it froze everything in the crisper drawers and sprung a leak. So you can only imagine how thankful I am that Samsung Home Appliances kindly gifted this one to me (I even gave the kitchen a mini makeover to celebrate) . Talk about life savers!
