Ombré Upcycle

I’m a bit of a self confessed DIY Queen, to the point where we went to a garden party recently and I ended up building the flat pack BBQ- a story for another day! When I’m not building BBQ’s I dabble in a bit of up-cycling here and there when I’m inspired, and as we’re currently moving in with my partner the perfect opportunity presented itself recently. We have been making the second bedroom a new haven for Alice, which inevitably meant lots of pink- her choice! The drawers he had already were a beautiful design and practical size but…

This is what it looks like and I’m already thinking of what I can reuse it for- if you have any Birchbox tips or hacks please share them with me, and…

Going Reusable

OK girls, it’s about to get real over here. Period. Yes, Aunt Flo is a bitch at the best of times with her habit of dropping into our monthly routines, usually at the most inopportune moment, to explain why all you’ve wanted to eat the last week is chocolate and fried cheese and why the sound of your Boyfriend breathing is enough to make you want to punch him in the face. But with that realisation, and relief that you’ve avoided the stork for another month, comes a week of cramps and period management. Yay. Since having Alice my TOTM…
