Spring Decorating Inspiration

With Spring coming up, I have started thinking about new fresh ways to refresh some of the rooms in our house. The Spring season makes me want to decorate; I think it has to do with the coolness of the weather and the rays of sunshine after having months of extreme cold temperatures. Plus, I love interior decoration so any reason to decorate really.

I have been snooping around for some home decorating inspiration, and I recently discovered some amazing homeware items available at the Altrincham Retail Park, I can’t wait to grab a few. This homeware spring/summer 2017 season is all about bold exotic prints and colours; pastel accessories will also be a home trend, so get ready to be in awe.

Here are some of the items that have caught my eye –

Argos Happiness Collection Home Canvas £7.99

This Happiness AT Home Canvas would look great in my living room. I love the simple floral design and the message. It is full of warmth and the light price tag of £7.99 makes it even more amazing.

This canvas would create a cosy atmosphere in every home. It would great in a hallway or living room.

Homebase Exotic Bird Pink Wallpaper £20

This Homebase Exotic Bird Pink Wallpaper would be a great tropical home accessory. Having this beauty on the wall of a room would be so beautiful. I have a few decorating ideas with this wallpaper in mind.

T.K. Maxx Cream Floral Cushion £12.99

This T.K. Maxx Cream Floral Cushion is a true beauty, I am so in love with it. The floral design is so beautiful. It would look amazing on my black sofa, and the price at £12.99 is fabulous as well. Some of my cushions have gone super flat, and need to be changed, so I can clearly see myself grabbing of these cushions.

T.K. Maxx Pineapple Shaker £12.99

This Pineapple Shaker is a quirky storage option that will bring some life into any home. I love the quirkiness of it. I can see it fitting well in my kitchen and my bedroom. It would be a great home addition this spring.

The beauty of all these items apart from the fact that they are amazing, is that they are all £20 and under, which makes them affordable for many. And they are all within reach for me, I can grab them easily at Altrincham Retail Park, which is just a few minutes from where I am.

What are your thought on this new spring/summer home trend? Did any of these items catch your eye?

Product Review: Braun Silk SE5531 Wet & Dry Epilator

Braun Silk SE5531 Wet and Dry Epilator Image

 

I used an epilator for the first time some days ago and I am in awe of how smart a gadget it is. Prior to using this smart gadget, I have always used shaving creams, gels and sticks to get rid of the hairs on my legs, bikini line and underarms. At the moment, I am very into various hair removal treatments, having had my 6 laser hair removal treatments, and you should know all about that if you are a regular reader, and if you are not, you don’t know what you are missing…

I have been dying to use an epilator. I have heard mixed reviews about this hair removal gadget, so as soon as I spotted this epilator on offer on the Boots website, I bought it immediately. I went for the Braun Silk SE5531 Wet and Dry Epilator because the reviews online were good, and because it was on offer – I got it half price!

I have used this epilator on my legs and attempted to use it on my underarms and I am have quite a lot to say about it. But before I dive into the review, here is what Braun has to say about this epilator –

Developed for ease of use, comfort and great results, Braun Silk-épil 5 Wet & Dry removes even the shortest hair that wax can’t catch, leaving skin silky smooth for up to four weeks.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. It is super easy to set up. You won’t be needing a dummies guide. It does come with a manual with the clear and simple instructions in English on page 11.
  2. This epilator comes with 2 speed settings. I used mine on the first setting because I only just started using an epilator and I found this setting much more comfortable.
  3. In the pack, there is a cleaning brush, tweezers, charging cord and a massage attachment designed to stimulate the skin for a gentler epilation.
  4. It is sold in many stores – Boots, Argos, and Amazon, to name a few.
  5. It leaves the skin silky smooth and without strands of hair for at least 4 weeks.
  6. It can be used in the shower, which makes it very convenient.
  7. The packaging was easy to rip off.

CONS

  1. You have to charge it for an hour before first use which was a pain for me because I was in a hurry to test it.
  2. The cord needs to go in an adapter to charge which is a pain if you don’t have 1 at hand.
  3. I would have preferred to have a sort of lid on the epilator head for when not in use. It does not come with any.
  4. I found it extremely painful at first. Then it gradually became bearable on the legs but I could not stand the pain on the underarms. I found it so painful, I had to stop mid-way.

I have heard many people complain about how painful epilators wer but I thought I could handle it. I have had 6 sessions of laser hair removal treatment on my chin, so I thought this would be a walk in the park but I was so wrong. Epilators work the same way threading, waxing and tweezers work, it plucks the hairs from the roots. I find the hair plucking from the roots very painful, I rather go for a laser hair removal treatment that would ‘burn’ the hair rather than pluck. I guess that is why I did not find laser treatments so painful.

I recommend this Braun Silk SE5531 Wet & Dry Epilator to anyone who can withstand the pain of waxing and threading. If you can handle that, then this should be fine for you. The RRP is £89.99. This price can be a pro or a con depending on how useful it will be for you.

I will be using mine on my legs when I need to, but only on my legs. I will stick to other methods of getting rid of body hairs in other parts of my body for now.

What do you think of this Braun Silk SE5531 Wet & Dry Epilator? Have you tried it? Are you a fan of epilators? Which do you use? Drop me a comment, lets chat.
