My March Favourites

As you can see from my serious lack of posts in 2018 I have struggled immensely for inspiration. Last night I sat and went through page after page of ideas for lifestyle blog post ideas (400 in total) and have whittled them down to about 40 so i now have plenty of inspiration. One think I really like the idea of was Friday favourites every week. I spend most of the week screen-shotting things that pop up on either my Instagram feed, pintrest feed or generally in life so this post on a Friday will be those things!

Fashion, home and pretty much anything else. This first Friday favourites definitely has a theme of Easter going on! As always everything is great value (we all know i’m not a designer gal).

I am totally fed up of wearing black or tan so this will make a nice change coming in to spring!

Moving away from boots (which will be such a relief for our ankles) I found these gorgeous tan loafers for spring and summer.

I think it’s official, my obsession for pom poms has now turned in to an obsession for tassels, they are everywhere at the moment and this T shirt is not only a bargain but amazing!

Just look at this guy, he is so adorable. I am getting more and more in to actually decorating the house for Easter and this chap will be a definite buy for the festivities.

Other than my love affair with Mustard I am all about the pastel colours and these little eggs would be a perfect addition to the cottage.

Cake stand

I currently have this saved in my basket on Ebay and have every intention of buying it at the end of the month, there is ALWAYS cake in our house so it would be rude not to put it in something pretty.

White clock

I was led in the bath yesterday without my phone just reading and completely lost track of time, it occurred to me that there is no clock in my bathroom. I am loving this one as an addition so I don’t miss the school run!

Mustard bag

**She sighs** isn’t she s beauty. This colour is my life at the moment, it’s all over the house all over the pets all over my wardrobe and this bag has just topped it. Mustard is a great colour because it goes with black or blue which are my two staple colours.

There you go my Friday favourites, let me know what you think of the new weekly blog post and if you have any requested for themed ones just let me know. All my social channels are below, and thanks for reading.

The Juice Box

If you are a follower of my Instagram channel you will already know I am well and truly on the OCD spectrum. I loathe mess, I loathe disorganisation and truly can’t stand not being able to find things.

In our house we have more technology that a post could even contain (partly due to what I do for a living) but this leaves me with the constant sight of cables charging various electricals everywhere. On top of annoying me immensely these cables get chewed by the puppy, played with by the cat and I’ve also been known to suck a few up the hoover (plugged in I might add) talk about hazards!

I searched on Ebay and various other sites for some kind of ‘charger organiser’ plenty came up, there were colourful plastic ones, holder ones that held various things up, but nothing shouted out at me ‘i’m great value and I will fit with the country chic theme of your house’. I went on to pinterest and searched various options these ideas all amalgamated in to ‘The Juice Box’ so i moved over to Ebay for my supplies.

The box was just over £11 with a fast and free delivery option: here’s the link

The multi USB charger stand was just under £10: here’s the link

You can use any paint or colour you want, I went for chalk paint in antique white as i’m pretty much obsessed with the stuff, and the writing is optional (if anyone want’s to know how I did that just ask and I can put together another blog or video).

Here is what the box looks like when it comes, there is an option to have a lid or no lid but wanting to hide it all away I went with a lid.

Measure out where the power cable needs to feed in and with a wood bit drill out until you have made a whole big enough. I know there are big drill bits that would make a much bigger hole but I wanted to keep this low cost (and realistically when would I use it again).

IMG_3989

Once you have made your hole then it’s time to paint, I painted the whole box inside and out for a nice fresh finish but it’s up to you what you want to paint and the colour.

Next I added my text (this is totally optional) but like I mentioned earlier if you want to know how I did it just ask). This was sanded to finish hence the dust everywhere.

IMG_3987

Attach the power cable and fix the USB tower in place with  little bit of double sided tape then add as many cables as you plan on using (as you can see for us it was rather a few).

IMG_3986

Done an in place without a cable in sight when the box is closer. It really was so easy. If I haven’t made sense or can give you any more tips please just get in touch or leave a comment!

Enjoy and thanks for reading.
