Wayfair challenged me to spruce up my kitchen ready for Autumn. I love a challenge and especially ones like this where you get to make a real difference to a room. Trending colours for Autumn are orange and teal, two of my favourite colours and that inspired the products I chose. Great products at great prices. Don’t forget to check out my family friendly recipes below too…

Now is the time of year when we face up to the reality that the time that we’ve spent out and about over summer has meant that we’ve neglected our household chores, and why not? Summer is the time to enjoy the milder weather, the longer days and the sunshine; however, Autumn is the time that we can prepare our homes for the Winter ahead. Here are 4 ways to freshen up our homes in preparation for the colder months ahead.
Yes, I had to throw in a little Game of Thrones reference there. It’s a prominent issue for any gardener though! With Winter coming we need to get our gardens ready for the colder weather and all the elements. Get rid of those dead plants, plant bulbs ready for Spring and give the garden that general tidy up. I love being in the garden and learning what to do over the seasons is really interesting.
PizzaExpress is celebrating the launch of its exciting new look restaurant in Hitchin. Conveniently located in the town’s Market Place, the family friendly restaurant has been totally transformed with a fresh new décor and contemporary fixtures and fittings. We couldn’t wait to get over to Hitchin and try it out, whilst trying out their autumn menu of course.
Autumn is my favourite season, mainly because you get a great mixture of indoor and outdoors. When it’s not raining, we wrap up warm and go outside – collecting leaves or twigs. If it’s raining then we tend to stay inside and do arts and crafts (sticking and glueing as Isla calls it) and when we have these days, Baker Ross comes to the rescue.
Spring is such a beautiful time – in fact, I think it might even be my favourite time of the year. There’s a special kind of aroma and feel in the air; the trees are starting to get new leaves, the flowers are starting to bloom – and all around you, people just seem to have that little bit of a spring in their step! I always look forward to spring, especially because spring heralds the time when I can get my bike out of storage and start pedalling to work again. The warmer days are such a treat, and I always get to work in the best mood when I ride. I want to share with you all top seven ways to put a spring in your step so that you make the most of this beautiful time of year. These tips are brought to you by the perpetual bringers of spring, Melbourne florists, Oollie Flora.
Last month Pizza Express in Huntingdon opened revealing its lovely new makeover, a fresh and vibrant look for Autumn – complete with a new menu. We were very lucky to hop along and check out the new menu and restaurant. It looked really different and so much brighter. We really loved it and tried to get the new things off the menu to see what they tasted like. Here’s what we had off the autumn menu:
Who doesn’t love a onesie? Except for my husband, but I am sure he just says he doesn’t to be cool – I came home the other day and he was wearing my bambi onesie, so I am sure he really would like one. I think they are a brilliant idea, why should little babies only have the benefits from them? They are great for snuggling in, especially when it gets colder in the evenings and you are not quite ready to crank the heating up to full blast. A constant battle in our house!
Last year we didn’t really get involved in carving the pumpkins too much with Noah, Isla was a dot and would not have understood what was going on, but this year it was a different story. I am very looking forward to our next Halloween because I will make sure that our pumpkins are carved perfectly with some great characters on them. Noah and Isla would love that.
