60 Minute Makeover.....

Yeh right! ( Loved that show though!) More like 60 hours of painting the walls, ceiling, skirting boards and bedroom door in the summer holidays, sweating like a pig and 
thinking what am I doing! But it was all worth it!

My bedroom looked outdated, last time it was decorated was 10 years ago and it still now looked like a girls room, I don't know what we were thinking with the salmon coloured walls and similar carpet eurggh but tastes change and I was young, now I wanted to change it to a fresh modern young woman's room with a touch of floral and lovely bright colours.
The top picture is how my bedroom used to look like, with my collection of teddy bears
and the bottom right is how my bedroom looks like now! 

I wanted to go for the subtle white look so I could add colours through photos and decoration and so it didn't clash. So I bought paint from B&Q, white with a hint of lilac. I bought new brown carpet, love that new fresh carpet feeling. First I painted my room using roller, paintbrushes and masking tape then got the carpet changed. Its amazing how much difference a colour and the layout of your room can make and my room is now airy and looks spacious.

The top painting is a Claude Monet poster that I had bought in my university years, I recently framed  it to hang on the wall (white frames are from Dunelm Mill) and the bottom three are my Instagram photos that I have taken, of Islands in Greece and the Eiffel Tower which is also framed and hung on my wall. 

Why not print some of your beautiful Instagram pictures and show them off instead of hanging generic pictures that you can't really relate to?

Lastly but not least I bought myself a new headboard to finish off the look I wanted to go for! Took me a while to find the right one and with a reasonable price I bought a ivory metal headboard from Cut Price Suites & Beds and added colourful bunting bought from a gift shop called Evolution. I might add some more colourful pillows so that it goes well with the bunting.

So I have been using my good old Iphone4S as its just easier when you're out and about and will post a photo a day in September, some words haven been challenging but I'm going to give it my best watch out for mine and Laura's summer photographs!!

Island Hopping to Parga and Paxos in Greece!

We went on a boat cruise and stopped at two islands, Parga and Paxos. 
It was lovely to relax on the boat and take in the views

We passed a cave, amazing views, I'm sure there's a name for it and
I must find out and there is Parga Island!

 Parga and the surrounding areas have many restaurants and seaside taverns serving fresh fish,unique local recipes and tourist shops. The character of the city is lively and modern but also with intense elements of the past with beautiful scenery of hills of houses, so colourful and pretty. I love this photo and want to enlarge it for my bedroom wall!

Traditional houses in Parga

There was a sandy beach close by so we dipped our toes in the hot sand and relaxed!

Here's me trying to tan my pale legs! 
They are slightly tanned but not much, ended up with mosquito bites instead!

We had two hours to do what we want in Parga and then 
we all had to hop on the boat and hop off again at Paxos Island

At this point we were quite tired from the heat so we just sat on the rocks and dipped our feet in the water.
