Think about lighting

The type of lighting you use can have a big impact on the appearance of your bedroom. Ditch your worn out light shade for some chic hanging lights or tasteful chandeliers to easily insert some glamour into any room. As for bedside lamps, consider wall lights as a more sophisticated alternative, with the added bonus of being cord free which is a great way to keep the bedroom looking minimal, and minimise the appearance of clutter.

 

Consider your bed

The bed is typically the focal point of any bedroom, meaning you should pay special attention to the frame and bedding used. Investing in a 6ft Divan bed is the perfect way to add some luxury to your room, with simple yet stylish designs, and space to store all your bits and bobs to avoid clutter. Go for bedding in beautiful colours and designs, and pay special attention to layering up your bed with soft throws and lots of cushions. They might be a pain to rearrange each morning, but the results are well worth it!

 

Optimise your space

 Making your bedroom look bigger can be a good way to give it that hotel room feel, and is easier to achieve than you’d think. Placing a large mirror across from the opposite of the room can work wonders, creating the illusion of more space in an instant! The colours you use in your room can also play a factor. Try painting your walls in light shades such as white, grey or beige, and then opt for a darker colour for the ceiling to create the illusion of higher ceilings by drawing the attention upwards.

 

Find some statement pieces

While you don’t want to over clutter your bedroom with too much furniture, it’s definitely worth hunting down some perfect key pieces to bring everything together. A stylish rug, bedside cabinet and chair with a bold colour or pattern are just a few items that can easily give your room a quick update. A beautiful piece of framed artwork should also not go amiss, being the perfect way to add personality and character.

 

Add some florals

Once the majority of the room has been transformed, create some final finishing touches with a selection of beautiful bouquets. Flowers are a lovely way to decorate your home, and give you the chance to get creative in arranging your bouquets just how you like them! Place florals in elegant vases on bedside tables, dressing tables or shelves for a really easy, quick and cost-effective way to spruce up your space.

Creative Writing Course NCC Home Learning

I am always eager to learn something new. Knowledge is never too much, so I make a conscious effort to learn something new each day. I recently had the opportunity to study a Creative Writing Course with NCC Home Learning, and I am loving it so far.

NCC Home Learning has over 350 distance learning courses available to study from home, at your own pace and time, which is great! I only just started my Creative Writing Course, I completed the first module – Creative writing and you, and I know for a fact that I am going to gain a lot from this course.

This first module had me searching myself and my love for writing. It made me think of the reasons why I write, when I discovered my love for writing, when and where I like to write, and my writing journey in general.

 

 

I discovered my love for reading and writing before my tenth birthday. I discovered I was more into reading and writing than my peers, and that I truly enjoyed it. I wrote a bit of that in my book – How to Cash In as a Blogger, so go have a read if you have not done so already.

I am interested in this creative writing course because I would want to improve my writing, I believe there is always room for improvement, even if you are J. K. Rowling. I would also love to discover new writing techniques and ideas, and explore other writing genres. I am currently only interested in reading and writing non-fiction, but back in the day, I was only interested in fiction books, I remember being so into romance novels when I was younger, and I even wrote a few short stories myself. But now, I have lost all interest in reading and writing fiction, which I find so weird, so I am hoping this online course would spark my interest in the fiction genre again.

I will be keeping you all updated on my progress, and I will be writing a more in-depth review once I am done with the course in the next few months. Wish me luck. Thanks for stopping by.

Best Tech Gifts for Easter

I am slowly becoming a tech freak, I am usually not bothered with gadgets and all, but these days I find myself lusting after various cool gadgets. I am currently in need of a few new gadgets, so it has got me spending me more and more time on various tech websites, so I thought writing a Best Tech Gifts for Easter post would be a great idea, since that is all I do nowadays.

I am currently lusting after these –

 

Ion Max LP Dark Wood USB Conversion Turntable

 

This Ion Max LP Dark Wood USB Conversion Turntable reminds me of my childhood. Music is one of my first loves, I grew up listening to music so this gadget here does not surprise me. We had a similar one growing up, and I remember listening to cool jams on it. I really like the dark wood finish and the fact that it has built-in stereo speakers. I think it is really cool!

I would love to have this in my home. It currently retails on HMV for £79.99, and I think that is a great price for it. What do you think?

 

Canon EOS M10

 

I have my regular Canon DSLR but I am now in need of a compact system camera that is light weight, with all the features of a DSLR and with WiFi. Is that too much to ask? Well Canon doesn’t think so since they have created just the camera I need. I came across this Canon EO3 M10 and it looks like just what I need and more. I just need it to go on sale now.

It currently retails at £279 in most tech stores which is a great price but I would love a sale price all the same. Do you own a compact system camera?

 

Canon EF-M 22MM Pancake Lens

 

I will want this Pancake Lens to go with my Canon Compact Camera. I have heard great things about this lens and I have seen firsthand what stunning images it can take.

I think it would be a great travel companion, alongside the Canon EOS M10. It currently retails at £179 in most stores. Have you tried this lens before?

 

Apple Macbook Air

My HP Laptop is slowly driving me crazy. It keeps restarting itself multiple times a day. Sometimes I end up losing my work in the process and it has become very frustrating using it.

I have heard a lot of good things about the Apple Macbook Air, so I am seriously contemplating getting one. If you own one, or any other Macbook, pls tell me what you like and don’t like about it, so I decide on which one to get.

 

What do you think of these gadgets? Which gadget catches your eye the most?

Happy Easter!
