Over the knee boots a winter wardrobe essential ?

As I am typing this post, I'm cuddled up on the sofa, the christmas lights are twinkling the dog is snoring, and Home Alone is on the TV, pretty perfect, but outside let me tell you its blooming cold and my winter outfits are out in force. Including some of my favourite footwear.

There are some pieces that are worth the investment due to there sheer versatility and timeless qualities. Items that can be bought out winter after winter and for me that is the over the knee boots, pull on with a pair of skinnies for instant sass. It doesn't matter what you wear them with, a pair of over the knee boots instantly take any outfit from zero to hero!!

How to make Puff Pastry mince pies (vegan)

When its comes to festive treats in the UK, the humble mince pie has got to be one of the most consumed goodies at Christmas, with millions being eaten over the season. I must say I am pretty fussy when buying mince pies, and now I have a dairy free diet, it is even harder to buy nice shop bought cakes and pies, including mince pies. Throughout the year I have been in the kitchen making homemade  treats and decided I would do the same with the mince pie, BUT I would jazz it up a bit and use PUFF PASTRY instead.

Christmas stocking fillers

I am currently feeling quite smug that we are only just into December and we have bought most of our Christmas shopping, well all the big stuff anyway, just those little add on gifts or stocking fillers to get.

So in my ever helpful way, I have compiled a few stocking filler ideas, so if you are stuck for those little gifts, here is a little help.

Christmas stocking fillers

I have chosen cute but inexpensive gifts, hopefully things the recipient will actually use, rather than just have gathering dust in a drawer. Who can resist M&S biscuits, fluffy socks, or a cute mug.

I hope you found a little inspo in this post, let me know if you will be popping any of these in a loved ones stocking this Christmas.

They look gorgeous on there own but also worn with a watch makes for more of a statement look.

Tips for a more relaxing bedroom

The whole point of your bedroom is that it is supposed to be a relaxing environment where you can get away from the stresses and strains of the world. The decorating of the room needs to reflect these ideas. Otherwise, the room is not fulfilling its purpose and you will find it harder to have that relaxing night’s sleep that you need to function well,( and be a nice person ) So, here are a few tips to give you some guidance on turning your bedroom into a sanctuary, and the relaxing space you deserve.

Tips for a more relaxing bedroom

Declutter the Room

If there is one room of the house which shouldn’t be bogged down in clutter, it is the bedroom. Now to get started, you should really go through everything in the bedroom and be very honest about whether it actually belongs in the bedroom or not. And once you have found a new home for the items which don’t need to be there, you can then invest in some more storage, so that the things which remain all have a right place. A simple tip for maximising the space that you have available is by adding some shelving, to get everything off the floor.

Set the Tone

When you are decorating a room for relaxation, it is important that you get the tone and colouring right. The last thing that you want is anything to bright or patterned which is too overstimulating. After all, this is the room where you are trying to drift off , and get that good night's sleep. Generally, you should stick to more muted colour palette in the bedroom. If you choose an accent shade keep it cohesive, and any details in the same shades.

Switch up decor with the Seasons

Now that we are entering the coldest time of the year, you should be upping the cosy factor, load up your bed with a thick duvet, blankets, throws, cushions, pillows the lot! Then when Spring rolls around again, you may decide to switch things up. Perhaps you could introduce some greenery into the space bearing in mind that succulents are perfect bedside plants. You also may want to replace the heavy winter curtains with ones that let in more light, making the space feel more airy.  

Invest in a Decent Mattress

If there is one item which is worth investing in and spending money on, in your home, it is certainly your mattress. This is the single most-used item of furniture in your house and it can make such a significant difference to your quality of life, simply from the better night’s sleep that it provides. Take the time to go down to your local bed store to sample some different options before settling on the one which is best for you.

Creating a more relaxing bedroom environment doesn’t have to be the most complicated thing in the world, and these are just a few simple tips that will help.
