Quarantine has been an odd time for all of us, and has marked the longest stretch of time many of us have been at home for a long time. But being at home doesn’t mean there is nothing useful and fun to do, and today we want to share some house and garden jobs you can do during quarantine to organise your stuff! 

Clear the wardrobe 

Over the year many of us end up collecting clothes we never wear, or clothes that are a little too small that we eventually plan to fit into. But now is the time to make a change and organise your wardrobe for good. Take some time this week to go through every part of your wardrobe and try everything on. Only keep things you love, things you wear, and things that have genuine sentimental value. Everything else? Either sell online through Vinted or get rid! 

Minimise your furniture 

After a long time living in the same house; and in this case staring at the same four walls every single day, it is time for a change. Grab yourself some secure storage units and think about clearing out the rooms of your house to make them more minimalist. You don’t need THAT much furniture, and once you have tried life without some of those small tables and cupboards that clutter up the space, you’ll likely find out that you don’t need them at all. Once you know what you want to keep and get rid of, sell items online and make some money in lockdown. 

Tidy the garden 

The house isn’t the only part of your home that can be changed and organised this year; the garden can be worked on too. Simple ways to spruce up the garden during lockdown is to clean up the flowerbed borders, weed the garden, and prune your large shrubs and trees into more manageable sizes and shapes. Have fun playing around with the look and feel of your outdoor space and it will make a huge difference. 

Organise the loft 

The loft is a part of the house which is often taken for granted and neglected, but this week you can make a positive change and finally rid yourself of the useless clutter you don’t need. Clearing out the loft might take a fair bit of time, but it will be more than worth it when you have extra space to store items you plan to keep for years to come. 

Clear your pantry 

Another part of the house that can sometimes be forgotten about is the pantry. If you are looking for a useful job to tackle today, the pantry is a great option. In an hour or so you will be able to rid yourself of out of date food, foods you simply won’t eat, and you can even extend your efforts to the freezer and tidy that up too. 

Take time this week to identify different areas of your home that can be better organised, and sit down and get these niggling jobs out of the way!

5 Spring Fashion Tips

Spring fashion is always fun. I love the fact that we can wear lighter pieces and style them a bit brighter. Spring fashion inspires me and I love playing dress up with my spring pieces and accessories. If you are after some stylish spring fashion tips, you are in luck. Here are 5 spring fashion tips for your styling inspiration this season –

5 Spring Fashion Tips

Make sure you are wearing the right bra

This is one bit many of us forget to pay attention to. Your bra and the rest of your underwear has the power to make or break any look. So make sure you are wearing the right bra for your size and outfit. The last thing you would want is to run-in your whole look thanks to an ill-fitted bra.

Balance your proportions

When styling your outfits, make sure you balance your proportions. The best way to go about doing this is to add opposite volume, so if you are wearing a pencil skirt, make sure your top is heavier to balance the look. Going for an oversized pieces for the top and bottom will create a shabby look.

Avoid match-matchy looks

Sometimes matchy-matchy looks can be very stylish, especially if the pieces are styled properly. However, I avoid match-matchy looks these days because I find they way too loud. I rather complement pieces than match them.

Work on your signature style

Having a signature style makes dressing up even more fun. Once you have a signature style, your entire wardrobe would work together and you will find it a lot easier to find what to wear. Shopping will also be done strategically since you would know areas that need filling. It takes a while to develop a signature style, but once you do, you will find it easier to maintain and build up.

Mix patterns and prints

I love mixing patterns and prints together to create a signature look. It works every time especially this time of the year and the summer months. I usually mix patterns and prints in the same colour and I love the looks I create.

Are you a fan of spring fashion?

I am always on the look out for great skincare and hair products to use. My hair is natural and so I like using pure natural products on it. I am currently using Naissance Fractionated Pure Coconut Oil on my hair and I am loving it. I added it to my haircare routine some weeks ago and my hair is thanking me for it. There are so many ways of using this product. I currently use it as a hair moisturiser but it can also be used as a makeup remover, massage oil, used alongside shampoo and conditioner for added moisture, and in many other ways. 

For those who have never heard of Naissance Fractionated Pure Coconut Oil, here is a brief product description for you –

This Naissance Coconut Fractionated Oil is super lightweight, fast absorbing yet ultra moisturising. It is a great all-rounder oil.
