Is It worth hiring a tradesmen to hang wallpaper? (AD)

AD. Wallpaper was popular during the 60s and 70s but started to fade away in 80s and 90s. However, in recent times, it has had quite the comeback. Now wallpaper is attractive, fashionable and basic wallpaper can be pretty easy to install too. If you are considering hanging wallpaper in your office or home then you may be wondering if it is worth hiring a tradesman to hang the wallpaper for you, or if you should do the job by yourself. If you’re wondering this then YES it is worth hiring a tradesman to hang the wallpaper for you and here are the reasons why.

Dylon fabric dye – does it work? I answer your questions!

In the past if I had clothes that looked worn I would just throw them in the bin. Eventually. However, I want to waste less money and I hate clothes shopping. Since having my c-section I am really struggling with finding trousers that actually fit nicely, without hurting my stomach. I’ve got one pair of jeans that I absolutely love and they are really comfortable. I’m able to work down the allotment in them and walk long distances without pain. They had seen better days though. Significantly better days. For a while I was wearing them faded and wasn’t really bothered. That is until I saw a photo of me wearing them. I knew then that I had to either find more jeans that I enjoy OR I had to give my favourite jeans a dye. I picked up this Dylon fabric dye and set to work.

Using disinfectant around my home (AD)

AD. I first started using disinfectant around my home when I was pregnant with my daughter back in 2015. So many people seem to be using Zoflora now, partly because of a number of influencers who recommend it in their Instastories and on their feeds. I love that Zoflora is increasing in popularity as they bring out lots of lovely scents regularly and I can go on a hunt in the supermarket to find my favourites. Also, I love that disinfectant is really reasonably priced, compared to other branded cleaning products. A little goes a long way and today I want to talk to you about the ways that I use disinfectant around my home. Also, if you’re reading this because you’re looking for gentler ways to clean then be sure to check out my quick way to clean a microwave – in just 2 minutes!

Staying healthy is important to me and I have found that antibacterial sprays and disinfectants are great at helping with this. I make sure not to overuse them but if I have an area of my home that needs to be free of germs, such as the bathroom or kitchen sink, then I find disinfectant fantastic for this.

How to organise your email inbox

For a lot of people, an email inbox is a fairly insignificant part of their online life. Lots of junk comes in, perhaps a few sale emails and maybe the odd offer or two. When you work online, particularly as a blogger, your email inbox is an essential part of your online life and something that can cause a lot of stress. I used to login and feel overwhelmed to see all of the emails sitting there, even if they were just made for the trash bin. That changed for me last year and today I want to share with you my top tips to organise your email inbox. Hopefully, you’ll be able to take action today to make your time online run smoothly and you to feel less overwhelmed.
