DIY | Pin Cushion Kit & Win With The Treasured

So the count down to Christmas has begun and I am feeling pretty unorganised with gifts for friends and family (someone please send help)!
I love giving thoughtful or handmade presents and have found the perfect combination of both with these make-your-own craft kits. Not only are they super cute but are the perfect gift for a craft loving friend.

I have teamed up with the online gift store The Treasured to offer you the chance to win a DIY Doughnut Pin Cushion craft kit from The Make Arcade this festive season. Scroll down to see what's inside the kit & more details on how to enter.

Small Business Saturday | Reasons to Shop Local this Christmas

We have all heard of Black Friday & Cyber Monday but there's one day I'll be marking on my calendar this year for many more reasons than just the chance to grab a bargain, Small Business Saturday. I have always been a big supporter of handmade products and independent sellers so when Fundera asked me to show my support for Small Business Saturday and buy locally this Christmas, I jumped at the chance to share my favourite local shops.

Lifestyle | Bella Coco: How To Crochet eBook Review

Once in a while I come across a blog that really inspires me and over the past few years Bella Coco has continued to be one of my favourites. 

Sarah-Jayne is the lovely lady behind Bella Coco, not only does she manage her blog, regularly posting about interiors, weddings and craft, she also runs a successful YouTube channel teaching crocheting and has opened BellaCoco Store selling yarn and crochet supplies. I often head to her blog to learn a new crochet stitch or technique, knowing her tutorials will be modern and easy to understand. So when I heard Sarah Jayne was bringing out her first eBook How To Crochet: A Handy Reference Guide I jumped at the chance to review it.

DIY | Copper Plant Pot & Tips for Repotting Plants

I have recently become a little obsessed with plants and really want to fill my home with lots of greenery. I think house plants bring so much colour and life into a house making it feel more homely. Having not know much about plants and after telling my friend that I didn't think my plants were growing much she suggested they might need re-potting. So instead of just buying a new pot I thought I would DIY one to fit in with my spare room decor and give my plants some space to grow.

I love traveling and one of the things I like most about getting away is the little touch of luxury you get when you check into a hotel for the first time

DIY | Arm Knitted Cosy Chunky Blanket

Hello November. 
I can finally start getting excited about winter now that November has arrived. Who doesn't love cosy nights by the fire, wrapping up warm and frosty walks in the park?! And with it comes the chance to create some seasonal DIY's.
 I've been dreaming of oversized blankets for a while now, having been inspired by Pinterest-worthy interiors filled with chunky knitted throws, so I decided to have a go at making my own.
