eat on the go Eat on the go lifestyle made easier with Curver’s SMART To Go range.

I’m sure there is no denying that we all lead very busy lifestyles, often multitasking and possibly eating on the go at our work desk.

It’s important that we try to eat healthy on the go. Research has shown that we tend to overeat when at our work desks.

I love Curver’s SMART To Go soup container because it allows me to eat a little healthier and control my portion. Being able to plan ahead on what soup I would make for lunch, allows me to try to include as much of my 5 a day vegetable portions into the soup.

Also, soup is great, because I can make huge batches, and then store, fill and go for different days. Curver’s SMART To Go soup bowl container is microwave safe and its cover seals tightly shut for easy carriage, and can be clicked open easily on the sides when needed.

There is also a convenient little window panel to allow the steam to escape during and after heating. The large handle helps with stability when drinking the soup directly. eat on the go I’ve made little croutons to put in my soup too. I’ve stored them in one of Curver’s little SMART To Go sauce pot containers. eat on the go We’ve had a heatwave in the UK, and sometimes the workplace can be steaming hot.

Along with my SMART To Go soup container, I carry my  green Dots water bottle, part of the same range. Some cool features of this bottle deserves to be mentioned, for example it is made of Tritan which is BPA  plastic free and impact resistant.

So, do you ever eat on the go and if so, how do you manage it?

Tips on how to organise a teen boy’s room with with Curver’s concrete looking Beton boxes

I have come to realise that banishing clutter is the way forward to a happy and relaxing vibe at home. That, and of course the addition of some colour.

What does one do on a long bank holiday weekend? Well, for me it was about reorganising the home.

I decided to start in my son’s bedroom. You may recall that, a while back, his bedroom was just blue and black.

However, over a period of time colour crept in.

I’m not sure he is totally happy with a rainbow coloured room, so I’ve decided to balance it with shades of grey, in the form of concrete looking plastic boxes from the Curver Beton range. Curver Beton boxes As you can see, I have 3 large Curver Beton boxes by his bed side. It’s so cool that it also doubles as a bedside table. My son loves playing games with his dad. It is not uncommon to see cards and dice strewn on the bed. I wanted to make his games accessible, yet easily cleared away. These Beton boxes were just perfect for his bedside space. I have unstacked them here for you to see. So now his bed looks so neat. Don’t you think that despite the colours, it feels very calm and relaxing?  The Curver Beton boxes come in different sizes.

As you can see, I have made full use of the boxes in organising my son’s things. I just love that texture and look of concrete. The good news is that it’s super light, unlike the real thing.

They would be great as storage in a men’s Den or perhaps in an industrial type interior space. The grey tone works really well with the blue walls and pops of yellow in my son’s room.

I have stored his socks in that super large Curver Beton box under his shelf.

The box is easy to open and has ample room. There are so many uses for these Beton boxes, for example, I’ve used them to organise his collectible cards.

He loves Pokemon cards, and it’s great that we can now keep them all in one place. Hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my son’s revamped colourful room.

So, what do you think? Those Curver Beton boxes are great for a tween turning into a teen room.

I’ll be showing you more aspects of his room on instagram soon, so watch this space.

How to organise a teen girl’s dressing table with make up storage find tidying and organising strangely therapeutic.

I’ve recently organised my workspace and my son’s bedroom.

I’ve also given my teen daughter’s bedroom a touch of paint and a revamp, but have not tackled her dressing table drawers, until now. Although she is perfectly happy with her organised mess, I just couldn’t help myself.

It’s great that I have a huge collection of Curver Infinity boxes to use. So, one weekend I set off to work. There’s a shelving unit at the end of her bed, which she part uses as a dressing table. I’ve given the area a little brightening up with some wall prints. I’ve also added a super cute machine washable rug gifted to me by Lorena Canals. The rug is one of the collaborations they did with Joy Cho of Oh Joy. I absolutely adore the colour palette and it feels so soft to walk on. dressing table make up storage The Curver Infinity cups are so useful for storing lipsticks and make up brushes. Such a simple solution to keep the dressing table area tidy. Next, I tackled the drawers. I was quite ruthless with the edit. Out of date make up or unused ones were removed ( obviously with approval).  The Curver Infinity boxes were perfect for organising the boxes of make up palettes.  I placed the smaller items in the narrower Curver Infinity boxes. dressing-table-decor It took me an hour to tidy her dressing table, and she absolutely loves it. She just needs to promise to keep it tidy. What would I do without my Curver boxes?  They are so handy to have and makes my space instantly tidy.
