Mini homeware haul and Decor update

Mini Haul 

Hi everyone, I have a few homeware and stationary pieces to share in today's post. The house was feeling a little bare after taking all of the Christmas decorations down so I wanted to get a few pieces to add a bit of colour back into the house. I have a few items today, from candles to faux flowers that are making the house feel more homely in January. Winter is long! and I find January and February can be a bit dreary, as we wait for Spring to arrive. I also have a Youtube video sharing today's pieces and a mini house tour of how the house is looking after Christmas. I will link to the video at the end of the post. 


Ikea Duktig play kitchen makeover

Ikea Kids Kitchen Hack

I am so excited about this weeks makeover. For a long time, I have been wanting to makeover my very own Ikea Duktig kids kitchen. However, I have no kids! So, no valid reason to go out and get the  Duktig kitchen to makeover, but, when my work buddy said she had one and it was getting out in storage I jumped at the chance to take it off her hands and give it a makeover. I had been swooning over these Ikea kitchen makeovers on Pinterest and I really wanted to do one. I decided to go for a feminine style kitchen as it will be going back to a house full of little ladies so I knew they would appreciate my pink, gold and marble combo. I have put together a Youtube video also on how I transformed my mini kitchen. I will make sure to link to the video at the bottom of this post. 


How I curl my hair, Vintage style hair tutorial using GHD

My go-to hair

I have finally gotten around to filming a hair tutorial. A few of you guys had asked me to film a video on how I achieve my vintage style curls in my hair. Just before Christmas, I got my colour done with Fiona from, I am a dreadful hair client and I only get my colour done every 12 weeks. Root spray and dry shampoo is definitely my friend. I put together a Youtube video for you guys to check out and in the video, I am answering my frequently asked hair questions. 
 I use a GHD to curl my hair and in the video, I am sharing the technique I use to achieve curls using the GHD. My best advice is to practice creating the curls with the GHD turned off and then go ahead and curl your hair once you feel a bit more confident.
