Here’s How You Can Prepare Your Home for Summer Without Breaking the Bank

Summer really is just around the corner. There are probably so many things that you need to get sorted out but this can be difficult when you work full-time. You may also find it difficult when you have kids because they will take up a lot of your time in the day. If you want to get around this then you can find out whatever you need to know below.

Saying Goodbye to Winter

Winter is over, so now it’s time to shut the door on it completely. You can never hope to make your home fit for summer if winter is lurking around. You need to try and update your home with much lighter colours and you also need to welcome flowers and even new plants for the garden. Now is the time for you to start preparing for all things like this and it can make a huge difference to the way that your home feels.


It’s Time to Clear out the Freezer

There is nothing worse than going out to buy some ice-cream because it is way too hot, only to find that your freezer is just way too full. It helps to clear out your freezer so that you can make way for the summer food and it is also the best time for you to try and clear out all of the built-up ice as well. When you are able to do this, you can easily get the whole family excited and this is one of the many reasons why so many people get this job done when summer comes along.

Clean the Patio

When summer arrives, you will want to sit outside in your garden. There is nothing wrong with this, but if you don’t put the effort into cleaning your patio then the whole thing won’t feel as satisfying. If you can’t be bothered to do any of this then it may be worth looking into a patio cleaning service. They can take care of the whole thing for you and you’d be surprised at how easy it is for you to get everything done.


It’s All About Your Airflow

If you have an air conditioning unit then you will know how useful this can be in summer. If you haven’t cleaned it out in years however then dust can build up and this can spread bacteria throughout your home. You may even find that the whole thing causes you and your family to experience allergies or you may even come down with a cold as a result. This is the last thing that you need when it’s nice and warm outside, so if you want to avoid all of this hassle and stress then one thing that you can do is hire someone to do it for you or try and clean out the vents yourself. You will be glad you did and it can make all the difference to your home.

So as you can see, summer preparations don’t take long, but they really can help you to enjoy the sun more.

I’m going to BlogOnX!

Even though I’ve been blogging for over seven years now, I haven’t yet attended a blog conference; so BlogOnX will be my very first one! It was a bit of a last minute thing, after my lovely friend Sarah asked me if I would like to go with her. (Her blog is very new so go and give it some love!). I’ve heard a lot of great things about the Blog On conferences over the years so I’m super excited (if not slightly nervous) to pop my conference cherry with it!

Our March favourites | Birthdays, books, and holidays

March favourites

March feels like it was months away now, although it was only last month. Time seems to be flying past lately, although I tend to say that a lot. I swear children are some sort of time-stealers. As well as energy thieves. But anyway… March is always a busy month for us as we have both boys birthdays. I was also at a book signing, and we were winding down for half term. We also managed to squeeze in the beginning of our annual holiday!

What should you eat for a healthy smile?

smile, teeth, mouth

In the era of social media, Instagram pictures and selfies, everybody wants to look gorgeous and have a Hollywood smile. You might agree that a photo of an individual with neglected or missing teeth can be posted only on Halloween. A few years ago many overseas dental destinations were almost a white unknown hole on the map, while nowadays hundreds or even thousands of people travel to Romania, Bulgaria or Hungary to undergo affordable and cheap dental treatment in Europe.  Without any doubt an amazing holiday combined with dental implant treatment in Croatia or Bulgaria is the perfect solution, but you can help your teeth stay healthy for your whole life just by following a healthy diet and a few really simple rules.

Our January & February favourites – | Crafting, exploring, and snow

January February favourites

It seems it’s been a while since I last shared a favourites post – back in January with our December favourites in fact! I feel like I’ve been really busy since then, but looking back I don’t think I actually have; probably just lazy, then… We’ve not had that much going on really; we had half term and then the boys’ birthdays, but that’ll go in a March update. I guess I need to share two months worth of favourites in this one!
