Stencilling a Floor With Cricut

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 ...

MY GARDEN WISH LIST WITH FAVI

My Garden Wish list With Favi

This post is sponsored by FAVI. Don't you just love a good mood board?? Especially When its full of all the things you would wish for! 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 ...

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 ...

Find Your Style With 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 ...

Samsung RS8000 RS68N8230B1EU American Fridge Freezer review

Samsung RS8000 RS68N8230B1/EU 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 ...

RFW Loves Schneider Electric Switches and Sockets

This post is sponsored by Schneider Electric. We often forget Interior fittings like light switches and plug sockets until right at the end of a project. But these last minute purchases are often the finishing touches to a room. And should therefore be thought about from day dot of a design. Granted, choice has up until now been kind of limited. But long gone are the days where white plastic is acceptable. Today we want not only function but form too. For a happy home everywhere we look we should see our own vision of beauty. This is where Schneider ...

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 kitchenย  (how does that even happen with the water supply is turned off) and well, it had come to the end of it's ...

HP Laptop Review with AO

Trying Out The HP 14-dk0008na 14″ Laptop 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 ...
