my 2 cents: get rid of the carpet and put down wood or lino. then maybe change the door. but really i think it's fine as it is apart from the carpet! xx

oh gosh i WISH second hand rugs were that cheap!!

never thought about bedbugs in second hand cushions/furniture though. i don't have the luxury of buying new so i'm always looking for a nice worn in armchair on eBay :)


Five Money-Saving Purchases You Can Snatch For Your Family While Yard Sale-ing

when i was a teen i did have my own comp but i think that's because both my parents were programmers. at the moment my partner and i share a laptop. when our 2.5 yr old becomes a teen we will have to see! i must admit i don't like the idea of teens having them in their room they get up to all sorts of mischief (to put it mildly)! but everyone's circumstance is different!

i would have a craft/sewing studio! some where for a big dressmaking pattern cutting table.

but then maybe instead my imaginary spare room would have a treadmill in it!


What Would You Do With an Extra Room?

after my experience i would recommend to new parents to not buy anything until after the baby is born! for me i was adamant that we would not get a cot, but that we did need a changing table. never used the changing table!!! we didn't really need the moses basket, or the big convertible pushchair, but we did end up buying a sling! i would suggest only buying clothes and muslin cloths and a nursing pillow in the beginning but that is just me!

you must do what feels right for you!! xx

oh this is strange... we use disposable nappies and nappy bags and sure it smells a bit funky for a while after changing but crack a window if it's really that bad! poop isn't a bad thing ;)

we tend to get a worse smell from vegetable waste anyhow! lol

i love using pinterest to look at lovely parties and decorations people have made but i still don't know what i'm going to do when my daughter has a party! i do think sticking to the basics - cake, party bags, games like pass the parcel and musical chairs - is the best bet! i don't want to make them over excited and everyone start crying lol! a couple of hours of running around with balloons is enough and if you can sew your own banners/decorations that's just a pretty extra and you shouldn't feel bad if you don't :) xx

i love seeing inspo like this! we sort of have a back garden but it's only a patio/called a "court yard" so i want to find a way to have lovely pots of plants arranged AND have suitable outdoor play space for my toddler.

it's definitely been integrated into the person's home really well and looks great in the space!

i do think it looked just as good before as well! but i think i lean more towards "industrial" looks rather than solid blocks of colour but that is just me!
