Why I love minimalism – and wish I could achieve it more at home!

Being a Mum to a 2-year-old means that my home inevitably looks like it is in various stages of a hurricane, or maybe the clean-up after a hurricane. There is a regular stream of toys, food, drink, and household items dotted around my home during the day. This is absolutely fine with me, as I’m so grateful to be a parent, but there are definitely times where I long for minimalism in my home, at least beyond my bedroom. I love minimalism and feel that it brings real calm to my bedroom, so today I want to share how I’m achieving this – at least in one room of my home!

Our dream garden

I’ve made no secret of the fact that we are hoping to move by the end of Summer this year. All being well we will be celebrating Christmas in our own house this year for the first time ever! I’m REALLY excited about this year, and I’m pleased that the time seems to be zipping by so we are closer to our goal. I’m already thinking about how we want our home to look and one area that is particularly important to my husband Thomas is the garden. Today I want to share with you more details about our dream garden.

What to consider when setting up a home office

I work from home. As such I need a little space where I can work each day, and be motivated. Today I want to talk to you not only about my own workspace but what to consider when setting up a home office. Organisation is one of the most important things but I think that there are several other factors to consider in having the perfect home office environment.

Cleaning my mirrored furniture with the Daewoo Window Vac 12W Cordless Window Vacuum Cleaner

We’ve got mirrored furniture. Not our best idea. When we first bought it I wanted it to give our room lots more space, and a lighter and airier feel. This worked out really well and I never regretted our choice. Until we had Daisy of course. Now the mirrored furniture in our bedroom is frequently covered with tiny fingerprints, mysterious splatters and other assorted toddler mess. I do still enjoy having the mirrored furniture, as it is so handy for looking around the room at night, checking on Daisy, making the room feel more spacious and improving the light too. Recently I was sent the Daewoo Window Vac 12W Cordless Window Vacuum Cleaner to review and I want to let you know my thoughts on it!

Our 2018 Bucket List – Hoping for a fun year again this year!

2016 was a rough year for us, so I decided to work to ensure that 2017 was better. It paid off and we have had a lovely year! We created a 2017 bucket list and it was our first ever bucket list together. Someone sent me a rude message last year, to let me know that the term ‘bucket list’ should only be used by people on their deathbed. I deleted it, as I’ve no time for negativity, or being told what to do and decided to start writing one every year. Anyone of us could die at any time, and life is too short to spend all of your time thinking ‘one day’ to things that you want to do. By creating our 2018 bucket list we are going to have lots of fun activities to look forward to. Anyway, here is a look at our 2018 bucket list!
