decorate your home with art How to decorate your home for a happy Summer vibe.

Wow! We had amazing sunshine in London this weekend as the clocks changed to Summer time.

The weather made me so happy that I wanted to reflect the outdoors inside my home too.

Firstly, what better place to style a Summer vibe than around my sunshine yellow sofa right? Secondly, I thought I’d add a new gallery wall curated from Posterlounge.

The cool thing about Posterlounge is that they have an amazing collection of artwork that suit all tastes.

You can even get your artwork in canvas, on wood, Alu-dibond or even as a wall sticker. Here are my selections close up. What do you think? The top left print is called Absolute Face by The Usual Designers, next to it is Mikado by Tracie Andrews, the yellow green one is called Planets by Okimido. decorate your home for Spring The smaller sized art prints on the bottom row are all from Okimido too. I love how the art works complement the cushions and rug so well. This is definitely one of my happy spots at home now. What do you think? Do the colours make you feel happy and optimistic. If you say yes, then my job is done.  Imagine snuggling up here with a cup of tea and a book to read.

I really love yellow at the moment, and I think my love for it has reflected in the prints I have selected.

cool tech gadgets 5 cool tech gadgets you may not be able to live without.

I thought I’d introduce you to some of the cool tech gadgets that I have added to my desk.

If you are tired of having to conceal tech gadgets that don’t fit with the aesthetic of your workspace, then look no further than SODA Says.

SODA stands for School Of Digital Age and is a carefully curated collection of technology gadgets for savvy women with style.

I have 5 pieces of gadgets to introduce you to: 1.The Penclic Mini Keyboard KB3 by penclic.

First of all, are you tired of all the “same-ish” silver or black keyboards out there, or are you suffering repetitive strain from typing?

Well, I’ve got good news for you. You can now get pink or gold keyboards. How good looking is my cute pink keyboard? What’s even better is the fact that you can connect to it via bluetooth to your phone, iPad or laptop too.

Imagine typing your answers to your phone Instagram comments on keyboard. If you suffer from repetitive strain, then this is a great keyboard. It’s ergonomically designed for comfort and has a light touch feature that makes typing super comfortable and easy. cool tech gadgets 2.Lexon Peas.

Who has multiple devices that need charging but no extra plug points or even usb ports on their computer available?

I’ve got my hands raised up high. In fact that is the same response of everyone in my household. Check out the Lexon Peas, with multiple USB ports. This is a must I think for most households.

You wouldn’t believe how every member of family had said “ oh that’s useful. Can I have it?”

It’s a great gift idea too.

I love mine in this deep petrol blue, but you can get it in a green too. 3.bGem Bluetooth earphones by Krea Funk.

Do you spot the super cool pink earphones on my desk?

They come in three ear tip sizes so you can pick the right fit and they won’t fall out.

Isn’t it great to have no fiddly wires around?

It’ll be perfect for when you want to listen to music when jogging. Not that I jog, but maybe this may spur me on? Other features include up to four hours of playback time, a built-in microphone, touch button control, and a bluetooth range of 10m.

Mine are a pretty pale pink, but they also come in black or blue too. 4. Anti blue light glasses.

The very fact these glasses now exist have made me reassess my blue light exposure from computer screens and phone.

Did you know that blue light overload can apparently cause dry eyes, fatigue, blurry vision and headaches?

I must admit that I do get those symptoms some time, but haven’t attributed it to blue light exposure. I’m going to wear them over the next couple of weeks, and will report back here soon. They look stylish in a tortoise shell pattern but come in black too. 5.The Super Power bank.

Last but not least, the Soda Says power bank. We all need one of these in our lives don’t we?

I’m finding the longer I have my phone, the faster its battery power becomes drained.

Being an interiors blogger, I do frequently cover events, so having a power bank would just make life so easy.

I absolutely adore this pink hue, and it has a rubberised soft to touch finish which makes you want to hold it all the time. ( Well, that’s how I feel anyway).

They come in blue and green too. So what do you think? Aren’t they all so aesthetically pleasing and useful?

Which one is your favourite?  Hope you’ve enjoyed this post on cool tech gadgets. Do check out Soda Says online, to see many more of their cool tech gadgets.

Finally, there is a giveaway on my instagram for the penclic keyboard from Sunday 24th March till Friday 29th March 2019, opened to all U.K residents. Hope you will participate there. Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.

art frames Where to buy art frames for your prints and photos.

Many of you who follow me here on the blog and instagram know how I adore styling up a gallery wall. Here is a little glimpse of my new art wall in my dining room.

I often get asked where I buy my art frames from, so I thought I’d share with you a cool site called eFrame that I have discovered.

eFrame is a great site to buy frames of all sizes and styles. You can also get custom sizes and colours too. They will also mount your pictures and even print your digital images to frame. I usually pick white art frames to showcase my colourful art prints. I got a collection of custom 15mm white wood paint frames made. You can see them now on my wall. I love how the art wall has made my dining room look so bright and cheerful. What do you think? Now to introduce you to the talented creatives who have sent their work in to me to showcase.

The ice lolly art prints are by Rocket Jack Design. The Hell Yeah and vintage floral prints are by Printed Weird. I have blogged about most of the art prints here before, but there are a few new additions.

The orange and leopard print is by Fox & Velvet. The heart print is by Doodlemoo. It’s wonderful to have a trusted destination to get my art frames now.

The art frames are of excellent quality and I highly recommend eFrame.

Hope you’ve enjoyed my new gallery wall. It was really fun to create.

I will be back with some exciting new stylings and collaborations soon.

Finally, wishing you a wonderful day.
