Lilac christmas tree baubles So here it is! My Lilac Christmas tree for 2020.

It’s from Christmas Time U.K., an amazing online destination for Christmas trees and decor.

I’ve named it as such, as Lilac was my central theme.

I’ve added minty greens and icy blues to compliment the lilac. Lilac christmas tree baubles I decided on a white tree background to go with the pastel coloured baubles, but I’m sure a green Christmas tree would work equally well.

The white Christmas tree is the Imperial pine white tree, also from Christmas Time UK. Lilac christmas tree I’ve styled the rest of the room in pastel hues. Those Christmas art prints and gift wrap are by Kelly from the daisy digital. Aren’t they all super cute? In case you want to create the same look, the lilac baubles are called Frosted Lilac, Lilac Mist and Ribbed frosted Lilac baubles. All the baubles are shatterproof.

The tree topper is theSage Green tree top Glitter Star. Well, there you have it. Another year, another tree. Hope you like this Lilac Christmas tree. It was so fun to style and the colours have brought a ray of sunshine and happiness to our home.

I’m getting excited for Christmas, how about you?

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead. x

Here’s the spoiler end result of my upcycled sofa!!

I couldn’t bring myself to throw away my rather run down 3 seater grey Aspen Content by Terence Conran sofa. It was the one that I slept on throughout the peak of the Pandemic in my basement.

It was in a bad shape right?

So I thought I’d get it upcycled. upcycled sofa I’ve collaborated with 2 amazing women to upgrade it.

I enlisted the help of Micaela from Sharp and Simpson to restore and reupholster the piece. Micaela had previously expertly reupholstered another sofa for me.

I’ve always admired Kitty Mc Call’s beautiful and vibrant fabrics, so have decided to use one of them in this project.

What do you think of the upcycled sofa? So colourful and happy don’t you think? I’m so pleased with it.

Anyway, off to sit on it now, to unwind for the weekend. Hope you are all keeping well and wishing you a brilliant weekend and week ahead.

aroma diffuser The Aroma diffuser with 3 functions from Smellacloud

When I come home after work at the hospital, I’m usually exhausted. Throughout the years, I have developed ways to help me unwind.

For me, there are 2 key elements that help me feel relaxed at home, and that is colour and scent. I guess that’s why subconsciously I decorate with so many happy colours at home.

It took me a while to find the perfect aroma diffuser for my home. I wanted something stylish, that functions well and is affordable.

I was so happy to stumble upon the aroma diffuser ranges by Smellacloud whilst browsing social media one day. aroma diffuser There were so many designs to choose from, but I finally settled on the above Nimbus 2.0 Aroma diffuser 200 in green.

I just loved that green colour, it’s a soothing and calm colour don’t you think? Talking about colour, my aroma diffuser also changes colour. So not only do I get the beneficial effects of aroma, I also get the therapeutic effects from the colourful light. It goes from shades of purples, pinks, blues and yellows.

The mist from the aroma diffuser also acts as a humidifier, that helps with easier breathing, especially during Winter when the air gets too dry.

Come to think of it, it would work wonders for a blocked nose too if you had a cold.

Just place a drop or two of Peppermint essential oil in the water and vapourise that wonderful minty humidified air away. aroma diffuser There are a variety of essential oils to pick from. You would certainly be spoilt for choice.

I went for Peppermint, Bergamot and Mandarin.

Bergamot is a citrus plant that is a cross between lime and orange. I’ve tried mine at home and not only is it refreshing, it’s a great insect repellent for these Summer months too.

If you are off travelling somewhere exotic where mosquitoes roam, then this aroma diffuser is light enough to take with you on your holidays.  As I type this post, my aroma diffuser is busily sending the scent of Peppermint into the air to keep me feeling fresh and alert.

It’s such a wonderful addition to my home and now part of my mental wellbeing routine.
