MUMMY MONDAY | BOYS NEW BEDROOM WEEKEND PROJECT








Hello lovelies so a couple of weekends ago starting from a Thursday night, my partner actually had Friday to Sunday of work and after years of wanting the wood panelled ceiling painted white he finally said we could do it! Bless him taking his days of to re decorate and splurge we got stuck in, all together the room cost about £300-£350 to do as we got new carpet, paint and new toy storage. You could re design your childs room for a lot cheaper but it needed it! It was very dated carpet as the house we live in actually belonged to Dan's nan and granddad so as you can guess the carpet wasn't modern at all, so we ripped that out and started fresh. We had to sand down all the wood panelled ceiling with a little help from my friend Jess and Dan doing most of the hard work then painted it white, I felt like grey would look nice in the boys room as I don't think it will need doing again as they get older, perfect colour for all ages. 

We went to Ikea to get all the new storage we decided to choose the Trofast design with different colour buckets as we thought this worked best to store all the toys away, I've given all his toys there own homes e.g. cars in one bucket, dinosaurs in another, lego bricks in one etc. We also picked up these cool green shelving units that you can stuff anything inside or like we have done toys on top! It just adds a bit of something to the room, it looks quite funky. Then Dan had the idea of putting the Avengers fleece up and removing the door! I wasn't keen at first then I thought why not, it's something different and the room next to them is a play room anyway so easy to get into and no trapped fingers in doors! As Lawson gets older we will have to put a stair gate on but there is one at the top of the stairs anyway. We got the marvel canvases at a carboot of all places, I think there great most of the little bits around are Ikea, new bedding from B&M along with the fleece and spiderman cushion and I painted some old furniture to go with the new decor. 

Me and Dan are thoroughly happy how the room turned out and more importantly so are the kids! Plenty of room to play in and its all stored away tidy, Oscar has learnt that when he has played with something to put it back in the right bucket before he gets another toy out and it's working so far. We stupidly forgot to take a before picture but if you seen in this old blog post you can see the wooden panelling and the dated carpet 'Old nursery' ! As much as it was hard work it was fun and all worth it when you see the finished results, it just makes me want to change all the rooms now but were going through mortgaging the house at the minute then getting an extension so will have to wait a while but I can't wait for it all to be done. 


Has this inspired you to change your room?

MUMMY MONDAY | DISNEY DEAL



Hello lovelies, just a quick one today, I thought I would share with you all just incase you was unaware of the great deal the Disney store has on at the moment, if you buy a large teddy you can have another one for just £5! They range from £40.95 upwards, I craved and bought Lotso the strawberry bear, I've wanted him for ages and couldn't resist the offer! With this we got Lawson Bullseye well were actually undecided who to give this to as Oscar is a big fan of Toy Story but not so big on cuddly toys anymore, who knows, they share everything anyway. 

I promise I haven't been paid for this aha, I just thought I would share with you all the great offer if you never knew, I didn't know until we were shopping in Liverpool and its online also! Even if you don't have kids treat yourself or your loved one to one, who doesn't love a soft toy? Dan's already trying to rob Lotso!

THE GLAMOUR BEAUTY POWER LIST | LIB






Latest In beauty The glamour beauty power list £18.99

Hello lovelies so a couple of weeks ago I bought this beauty box form one of many Latest in Beauty collections, all the beauty bits inside it appealed to me so I thought why not! They also had a free DHC cleanser with the offer and code but I don't think that code is running anymore sadly, but that is one of the main reasons I got this box, it's the best cleanser I have ever used! But back to the box...

Garnier Miracle Sleeping Cream - I have been using this every night for a bout a week now and I have noticed a massive improvement in my skin, it's so much more hydrated, clean, no spots forming and can feel the firmness in my skin too, it defiantly illuminates to I feel such a glow when I look in the mirror in the morning now rather than looking so fatigued like I used to. Well worth the pennies if you're thinking of trying out a new night cream, it's took me ages to find a decent one and I'm pretty impressed with this purse friendly one so far.

Nails Inc Nail Kale Superfood Base Coat - I have only used this once but it gave my nails a shiny glow and they looked pretty fantastic just having this base coat on without any nail polish, the next time I give my nails a break from nail polishes I will definitely just be putting this on them to give them that healthy glow. 

Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in the shade Gladiolus - I am a huge fan of of these lipsticks my Revlon already and own a couple and was happy to receive a red sort of shade from their collection as I think it will be perfect for the winter months ahead, there's something about pale skin and red lips on a frosty day! 

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer - I haven't used this yet and I actually have another sample of this somewhere so it shows the enthusiasm I have for this product, not a lot. However I will try it out since I have currently gone a lot blonder starting from my balayage journey here so my hair could probably benefit from this! 

Vita Liberate Luxury Tan - This is a mini self tanning night time moisture mask to gradually build a tan, I might use this just for my face to see how I get on as I have recently had a spray tan and the tan always seems to fade quickly of my face so I shall see how this develops and how long also!

Eyeko Midnight Blue Mascara - Not going to lie I was gutted when I received the midnight blue mascara rather than the black one but I see blue a lot lately, so it must be 'in', I'm going to have to test it out to see how it goes against my green eyes!

Rimmel Nail Polish In the shade Glastonberry - I actually already had tis particular nail polish so I gave it to my mum, she loved the shade as I do and I find these nail polishes really long lasting. I think its a lovely summery shade and I tend to go more near the plum sort of shades during the winter months and a few nude ones but my mum will get her wear out of this as she loves bright coloured nails all year around. 

Kiko Velvet Touch Creamy Stick Blush in the shade 04 - I have never actually tried anything from the brand Kiko before and was really happy to receive one of their cream blush sticks as cream blush is one of my favourite forms of blush currently, 04 is a gorgeous pinky shade, id say a barbie pink sort of colour and will look lovely against fair or dark skin in my opinion.

Overall the box is worth £92.87 but I paid £18.99 so a huge saving! If you love a few of these beauty bits in here it's well worth the price and savings, let me know what you think of this particular box or check out their other boxes they have to offer.
