Grey Interior Decor for Living Rooms

*PR samples and Affiliate Links.

When it comes to interior decor, like most things; I always go for quality over quantity. Clutter makes my head ache, so I like my living spaces with as little furniture as possible. I only go for items that are pretty and useful, and those that would allow me keep the space clutter free. A well decorated living room is always liked and admired by many. There is nothing like entering a living room, and every furniture is in the right place. Attention to detail is everything when it comes to interior decor.

The grey shade is a popular neutral colour for interior decor. It is one of my favourite shades when it comes to balancing our a room with neutral tones. Here are 3 great grey decor items for living rooms –

 

 

Grey Cushions

Updating your living room with cushions is cheap and easy. If you are after spicing up with your living room interiors with a small budget, go for updating your cushions in the right colours and design. I currently have my eye on this Grey Velvet Cushion by Baytree Interiors. The cushions come in a good size – 45X45cm, and price – currently on sale for £15.16 at the time of writing.

I love the velvet material, it is so luxurious and looks great for modern or contemporary living rooms. The cushions come in other colours as well – Navy Blue, Pink, Teal, Orange, Mustard, Emerald and Aubergine, if you prefer some brighter colour.

AmazonBasics Heat Insulating Blackout Curtain

I love grey curtains and this AmazonBasics Heat Insulating Blackout curtain is a great decor option. I love the fact that it is blackout. That is great for the current season, as the last thing I need is to wake up when the sun comes out. They are great for bedrooms and living rooms as they help keep the sunlight out.

The shade is perfect if you are after a neutral look, and the price is even more perfect at £27.99 for 168X137. I love it!

Social Media Tips – Twitter is meant for chit-chat

Blogging and social media go hand in hand. I would be lost with the 2, which is why you would easily catch me on them. When it comes to blogging, content is king and marketing is queen. There is no content without marketing. What is the point of writing post after post if no one is going to read it. Social media is a massive platform when it comes to marketing your blog. My number blog referral is Google, which is exactly the way I want to. I pay a lot of attention to my SEO, and I am thankful I am starting to see the results of all my hard work over the years. The last for referrals is Twitter.

Google is the number 1 referral for Fashion and Style Police

While Google is my number referral list, Twitter is my last! I found this odd at first because I didn’t understand how it would be my last since I shared every new blog post on there. I also share many tweets with post links with the right hashtags and they get liked/retweeted. So with all the hard work and Twitter being the last on the referral list, it left me wondering why. I have been on Twitter since 2009 and I still maintain my original account, although my name has been tweaked a few times on there.

 

Social Media Tips – Twitter is meant for chit-chat

I have come to realise that Twitter as the name kind of implies, is meant for chitchat. It is not really the platform to get lots of people to visit your blog. It is more for building relationships and expressing yourself. I will be doing more of that going forward. There will still be many tweets with links to blog posts and all, but I will be focusing more on just chatting with others and expressing my views and opinions.

 

Blog Coaching Service

Twitter is still one of my favourite platforms. I get many blog collaborations on there and I also pitch to many potential clients, so I won’t be reducing my time on there regardless. I will just be using it slightly differently now that I fully understand how it works as a social media platform. At the moment, I have a blog coaching service available, where I will be teaching how to make the most of your blog and start to earn an income from it. Do get in touch via email for more details on that.

Nickelodeon Land and Pleasure Beach Blackpool Guide

We visited Nickelodeon Land Pleasure Beach Blackpool last week during half term. It was a lot of fun as I previously mentioned in our last travel blog post. We all had a great time. The kiddies loved every bit of it. It is definitely a popular park and once I stepped inside it, I could see why it is loved by many. If you are thinking of visiting Nickelodeon Land Blackpool anytime soon, you may find this guide very useful. I know I read all I could online before our trip because I like knowing what to expect, especially when kids are involved. Surprises are the last thing I need when on holiday with the twins.

Nickelodeon Land Pleasure Beach Blackpool Opening Times

The Pleasure Beach Theme Park opens 10am and closes 7pm everyday. Nickelodeon Land Park opens at 10am and closes at 6pm everyday. The opening times are subject to change depending on the time of the year so it is wise to check on their website to confirm the opening times for the day you plan to visit.

 

Nickelodeon Land Pleasure Beach Blackpool Ticket Prices

Here are the current prices as at time of writing –

  • Tickets for Adults £39.00
  • Tickets for Children aged 11 years and under £33.00
  • Pleasure Beach Pass (No rides with this pass) £10.00

 

You can get cheaper tickets if you book online well in advance. We booked ours online a week in advance and got the tickets posted to our home address. This a cheaper and faster option as we didn’t have to wait in the line (the line was so long) to collect our tickets.

The online discount tickets can be booked in advance up to midnight the day before your visit. This will reduce the cost of your trip down to £28 for adults and £26 for kids under 11 years. Also, you can get a further £3 off your ticket if you visit Monday to Friday during the Off Peak Season.

Check In

Check in was very fast. We beat the queues thanks to having our tickets delivered to us so it was a smooth entrance. The bags were checked and it took about 5 mins for us 4 to be scanned in.

 

The Rides

The Nickelodeon Land rides are about 5 minutes walk from the entrance but we got on many rides in Pleasure Beach before heading that way. We got on so many rides that we lost track of how many we got on. There are rides for everyone. Many are subject to height restrictions so always best to check before you join the queues. We loved The Big Circus Bounce, Alice in Wonderland, The Blue Flyer, and The Avalanche so much!

Food Food Food

There are so many restaurants, food stalls, and cafes available in here. You would be spoilt for choice. Starbucks, Costa, and so many more! We had some hot dogs at lunch time and we enjoyed them.

 

Clean Toilets

This is the first busy theme park I have seen with clean toilets. Usually, by mid day, toilets are usually a mess but not this park. The toilets were clean throughout the day and there were many available all over the park.

We had an amazing time here and I know we will be back for sure. The twins had a great half term break thanks to Nickelodeon Land Pleasure Beach Blackpool and Hampton by Hilton. Memories were made and for that we are forever grateful. If you are in search of a great theme park to explore, I strongly recommend this one. It was so much fun and a beauty to behold. Definitely Instagram worthy.
