If you want me, I’ll be in bed with Nora | The Nora Mattress from Wayfair.

Have you seen the new Nora Mattress from Wayfair.co.uk? It’s the all new, affordable premium foam mattress-in-a-box. And I’ll be honest. When they asked if we’d like to review it I didn’t leap up and down and say yes immediately. Even though our mattress is almost as old as our 11yr old daughter. Even though my husband has a deep-seated enmity with our ancient memory foam mattress topper and the way it shifts...

Win a Stand Mixer with Wilko!

I’m absolutely in love with the beautiful new Copper kitchen range from Wilko. Have you seen it? I mean look – See what I mean? It’s gorgeous. And never mind the coffee pot, the saucepans, the utensils or the toaster. Oh no. Because we’re absolutely thrilled to be able to give away the tippety top of the range – their Stand Mixer. *swoons happily* I never really understood the stand mixer thing –...

Spotted! Origami Green Dinosaur Lamp!

We’re always on the hunt for quirky kids bedroom lighting – and I’ve rather fallen for this fabulous dinosaur lamp!   Is it a brachiosaur? Or is it a diplodocus? Tricky to tell. Either way it’s peppermint green, and utterly charming. I’d rather like him plodding gently around my room at night. He stands 22cm tall,  and is made not from paper at all, but from a tough polyresin which is much sturdier under...

Win a £140 Polti Moppy Cordless Steam Cleaner

Regular readers might remember that we are big big fans of the Polti Moppy Cordless Steam Cleaner. Well, to be fair, they’re potentially more likely to remember the frankly shameful filth on my walls than the brilliant steam cleaner I cleaned it with – the results were so good (and the start point so horrible) that I still get asked occasionally exactly what it was that I used to clean that blackness from my walls. So when...

5 of the Coolest Lamps for a Teenager’s Bedroom

(PS – In the spirit of full disclosure, my pick of Lamps for a Teenager’s Bedroom contains affiliate links. That means you don’t pay any more, but I may earn a teensy smidge of commission (which frankly just helps my coffee habit). Thank you, in advance, for your support!) Redecorating your teen’s bedroom slowly becomes a priority as they move from 12 to 14. We know – we’ve just re-done our 15yr...

KitchenAid Stand Mixers are 30% off at House of Fraser – under £350!

If, like me, you’re lucky enough to already have one, then you’ll know how lovely they are. Mine’s called Doris, she’s candy apple red, has pride of place on the work surface, and gets a loving pat on her beautiful soft round curves on a regular basis when I’m passing. If you don’t have one, then it’s possibly you’ve been eyeing them up for a while, hesitating at the eye-watering initial...
