Blue Bedrooms 2

Not that I’m planning ahead or anything, but viewing new houses has made me think about changing up my style a bit. I’m rather liking the serenity of blue bedrooms, and I’ve found some fun ideas for spare bedrooms. Here’s some of the bits I’ve found so far, imagine these […]

Home Technology 3

This is a sponsored post by Legal and General, they’ve written about home tech here and asked me if I’d write a post about Home Technology. They came to the right place!  We went to Curry’s a couple of weeks ago, and I was amazed at how much new home technology is out […]
