The rain is thrashing down, the wind is howling. It’s June but the heating is on I’m snuggled under a blanket wishing for the sun to come back.
I dream of sunnier days and glorious summer nights I am thankful for good double glazing. It’s amazing the difference that nice windows and doors can make to your house. Having installed them in our old house I was amazed at how they transformed both the outside and inside of the house. Making it warmer, but also lighter and brighter too. Truly giving it an updated and modern feel. I’m lucky that the windows in our new house are pretty new so .I don’t need to focus on them at this point which lets me think about redecorating or accessorising
But looking out the patio door from my kitchen I can’t help but look longingly at bifold doors and conservatories and all those modern home improvements that make the garden feel like they are an extension of your living space. I’m really lucky that we have no shortage of outdoor space and seeing as my kitchen is my favourite part of the house because of its amazing outlook onto the garden I know that these improvements would make even more of this space.
I’m imagining folding back those bifold doors and welcomingfriends and family for parties and barbecues. Letting the garden work as part of the kitchen and making it a truly special heart to our home.
For now it’s just a dream, but we all need those don’t we?

Recently I was contacted by Chlobo, a jewellery brand who have a wide range of gorgeous bracelets, necklaces, earrings, rings and more. The ranges are modern yet classic, pretty and cute.
I was offered a choice of bracelet from the gorgeous range, and I was definitely spoilt for choice. I eventually settled on this cute mini star bracelet, in rose gold. At £90, it’s not cheap costume jewellery, but it is good quality, beautiful jewellery. It’s dainty enough to look great on its own, but stacked up would look more substantial and gives off a youthful, fun, vibe.
It came in a branded gift bag and pretty little gift box, including a velvet display cushion. It felt really special and like an ideal gift.
I’ve been wearing my bracelet stacked with an existing bracelet I always wear but I’m dying to add to my Chlobo collection. I’ve got my eye on the gorgeous stacking rings and another bracelet of two to give me even more choice and a bigger stack!
I highly recommend Chlobo, the pretty stacking bracelets by Chlobo would make great gifts, or the perfect treat for you!
I received a Chlobo bracelet in exchange for this review.
We’ve been in our new home since July. It’s really starting to feel ‘right’ now. Everything is settling into place and starting to look finished. We can now focus on the finishing touches and nice things rather than the big picture.
JD Williams offered to help with those finishing touches and supplied us with some bedding for the master bedroom and a throw which goes perfectly in our room. The website was easy to manuvere and search, the only problem was choosing just which items I wanted.
Cosy Throws and Bedding from JD Williams
I opted for some plain, jersey bedding for our master bedroom. With the starry wallpaper I felt it would look smart and show off the wallpaper too. The bedding is really soft and comfortable, even more so than I expected and at just £35 for the SuperKing size, it’s really well priced too. If you like this specific set then you can find it here.
The throw was an easy choice. I wanted something that looked lovely, but would be warm and cosy too. Perfect for guests in case they feel the cold. I also wanted something that would go with all my spare bedding and the striped wallpaper in our spare room. So the natural, cable knit throw just fit the bill perfectly. Incredibly, it only costs £30, which is frankly very cheap for this throw because it is exceptionally good quality and looks really expensive too. My husband worried I’d spent a small fortune so he was very impressed by the price too.
Check out all the ranges over on the JD Williams website, I don’t think you will be disappointed!
