The Gift of Flowers

Growing up in Africa, I was not much of a flower girl. Life was not too busy in the crazy city of Lagos, for me to have the time to think of planting or flowers. But I am now at a point in my life where I appreciate the gift of flowers. I think flowers are a great gift to give and receive.

Flowers are now universally accepted in this part of the world, and I can see why. Flowers send unspoken messages, and I think it is a great easy way to show appreciation to a friend or family member, or even a work colleague. I do prefer some flowers to others, some strike a deeper chord in my heart and I find them delicately pretty. Here are 3 of my favourite flowers –

 

Roses

When I think of Red Roses, I think of Love. I love Red Roses. It is a very pretty flower. I am also a lover of the Pink, Yellow, Peach and Orange Roses.     I think they all smell amazing, and would make great gifts, depending on the occasion.

The quality of the flowers matter as well, so it’s best to get them from a reputable supplier like Flying Flowers, who has been in the business of handmade bouquets for decades now.

 

Sunflowers

Sunflowers are another favourite of mine. While researching the origin of Sunflowers, I discovered hey were one of the first crops to be grown in America, and their seeds were used to make flour for bread. Did you know that?

Sunflowers make me very happy. There is something so positive and uplifting about the sunflower, it could be because of the yellow colour and in your face shape.

 

 

Tulips

Tulips are another favourite of mine. I love having a Tulip Bouquet in the house. And when it comes to the gift of flowers, they are great to give as a birthday, wedding, anniversary or congratulatory gift. I think the Tulip also represents Love, Happiness and Positivity. Do you agree?

Free Dry Cleaning this Weekend

How do you like the sound of some free laundry? I know I need that desperately. My washing machine is forever running, and I still always have loads of washing to get done. It is like a never-ending cycle when it comes to laundry in my house. With my two little toddlers on the crazy potty training adventure, we have heaps and heaps of dirty clothes to be washed and dried. The joys of parenting eh?

I know some families make use of the Launderettes, to get their most of their laundry done, but for many of us with busy lives, that is not even an option. Sparing the time to get to the Launderettes can’t be done in my house.

If your life sounds like mine, than you are in for a nice treat. Laundrapp – the on-demand, on-your-doorstep, laundry and dry cleaning service is offering my followers £15 off their first order, using the code LAUNDRAPPSTELLA.

Decorating the Home with Exclusive Mirrors

I love interior decorating. I enjoy beautifying my home; I love taking a space in my house, and sprinkling some interior charm on it. It feels amazing to have a beautiful home. I am a homebody; I enjoy being at home, so my home has to be all shades of pretty, and very clean.

If I had an unlimited budget, I would be spending a good chunk of it on interior decorating. I believe home is where the heart is, and so my house has to be a home, not just somewhere I crash!

I came across Exclusive Mirrors some weeks ago, and I was blown away with the amazing mirrors they have on their website. For those who have never heard of Exclusive Mirrors, it is an online mirror store based in the UK, and it is the flagship store of a family of furniture websites. Exclusive Mirrors is basically the online home of mirrors.

I was in dire need of a touch of luxury on a wall space in my hallway, and decided to get this stunning wall mirror below.

 

 

This beautiful Aztec Design Champagne Wall Mirror caught my eye instantly. I choose this wall mirror because I knew it would add a touch of luxury to my home, and I knew it would blend in with the existing decor. And I was so right! This wall mirror looks amazing on my hallway wall. The elegant design is bold, modern and very stylish. It also adds a bit of traditional feel to it.

I am super in love with this mirror; it is one of the first things you see when you step inside our home, so we get a lot of complements, which is fab, I know I got good taste.

 

 

So if you are thinking of how to add a touch of luxury to your home, have a look on Exclusive Mirrors website (link above), there are so many wall mirror options, I can guarantee you will find a mirror you would like.
