Garden & Home Update
Some weeks ago, I wrote about how our garden is yet to be done, if you missed that post, click here. Well, we are working on it now, so crossing my fingers and toes, by next summer, our garden should be summer-ready. Yayyy, bring on summer 2016, I really can’t wait.
Garden aside, there is still a lot of home improvements to be done. When we moved into this house 2 years ago, it looked like we had more than enough space compared to our previous flat, but as soon as Naomi and Nathan came along, we ran out of space almost immediately. They came and took over our lives and closets. There is no space for anything else now.
At the moment, we need a wall to wall wardrobe to house all the many clothes, shoes, bags and other accessories we have as our current long-suffering wardrobe is struggling to keep up with us. However, we currently have no space for a wall to wall wardrobe in our home. We will have to wait until the kids grow out of their cot beds and into loft beds, then we will have some more space. I am really looking forward to that.
While doing some online shopping (my next best thing after blogging). I came across the bedroom furniture leading brand – Room to Grow and I was so impressed with the room furnitures, loft beds and bedroom accessories on offer. Room to Grow offer a great selection of children’s loft beds, which are great for maximizing small spaces, as they can be transformed easily into a work area, a cosy sitting area or even a storage area. As we are out of space already, the loft beds will be a life saver soon.
Here are three of my favourites bedroom looks from Room to Grow:
Parisot Uber Bed
I love the touch of pink here. This is so girly and pretty. Perfect for a little girl.
Kids Avenue – High Tek Bed
I love the colour combination here. This is so modern and sophisticated. Love it.
Solitare Ultimate Study Bed
I love the white and red going on here. Minimal and chic.
I am looking forward to having some space back. I have a lot of designs in my head already.
What do you think of these designs? How do you maximise your home space with kids? Sound off in the comment section pls.
Thanks for reading.
Female Body Shapes: The Balcony Shaped Woman
If you missed the last Female Body shape post, catch up here.
This week is all about the Balcony shaped woman. This woman has narrow hips and a full bust so the upper body stands out. This is an extremely rare body shape to have naturally but it is quite common in today’s celebrity world. The Balcony shape is also known as the Strawberry body shape Someone once asked why are women disappearing? He will need to ask the likes of Katie Price, Chloe Sims, Wendy Williams, Dolly Parton and Elizabeth Hurley.
It usually takes surgery, iron will and determination to have a Balcony shape and it is quickly becoming a must-have body shape thanks to the famous celebrities.
Here are the DOs and the DONTs for the Balcony shaped woman:
- Be prepared to sacrifice the tasty desserts and that piece of chocolate cake.
- Wear sunnies as often as you can. They will draw attention away from your breasts.
- Go for bias-cut dresses to show off the fullness of your breast and your narrow hips.
- Fuller skirts and wide leg trousers will balance out the shape beautifully.
- Avoid wearing skinny jeans and flats shoes. This draws attention to your bust.
- Avoid double-breasted outfits, your are already double-breasted!
- Shoulder pads and tapering trousers are to be avoided.
- Avoid halter-neck pieces as well.
What do you think of this bodyshape? Is it must-have for you? Speak your heart, don’t bite your tongue.
