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.

Stencilling a Floor With Cricut

Cricut Explore Air 2 - Raspberry Flavoured Windows

This post is sponsored by Cricut. As part of my ‘Outhouse’ (henceforth known as the She Shed) makeover I knew that the final piece of the jigsaw that is the design was the floor. But what to do with it?? It’s made up of two different slabs of concrete. One newer and smooth. The other old and pitted. And where the two meet there’s a crack that runs the length of the room. The ideal answer would be tiling. But A. The floor isn’t level and so would require small tiles or digging down and levelling. And B. This is a budget makeover. There’s no money for tiles. So when Cricut got in touch with me I jumped at the chance to try the Explore Air 2 to make a floor stencil. And as it turns out stencilling a floor with Cricut is incredibly easy to do.

And so when favi.co.uk got in touch with me asking me to share a wish list of some of my favourite products I jumped at the chance. Especially as the wish list could include whatever I’d like it to. Everyone who knows me knows that I’m currently obsessed with my garden (I should add yet to be started) makeover. Honestly, the amount of hours I have lost looking for the perfect pieces is ridiculous. Especially as it now seems that had I known about this fabulous online wonder I could have found everything I love all in the one place. So here’s my garden wish list with FAVI.

Mini Sitting Room Makeover With Fy

Mini Sitting Room Makeover With Fy

This mini sitting room makeover with Fy post contains gifted items. Anyone that knows me is well aware that I have a love hate thing going on with my sitting room. The previous owners to us made a rather hasty (in my humble opinion) and rash decision to knock through from the front to the back of the house. Making 2 rooms (I’ll have you know one of those could have been my office) into 1. Now I have no issue with anyone doing this but! And yes there is a but. For two rooms to work as one they need to be architecturally similar. And that my friends is my problem. Even though an inherited one. Continue Reading…

Find Your Style With Schneider Electric

Schneider Electric

This post is sponsored by Schneider Electric.  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.
