The Accessories That Make Your Home Cosier

The weather is cold and all you want to do is be warm and cosy in your own home. You may have central heating or an open fire, but it is also good to have accessories that make your home feel cosier.

Make Your Fireplace The Focal Point

All living rooms have a focal point and for many years this has been the TV. With more people watching programs by streaming them on laptops and other digital devices, that is not the case any more. Even with central heating, many people still have a fireplace. Making that the focal point of your living room will immediately make your home feel cosier.

Cloth Upholstery With Cushions

If your furniture’s upholstery is cloth rather than something such as leather it will be much more inviting on a cold and chilly day. A few soft cushions help as well, as they make it so much nicer to snuggle into.

If you do have leather furniture, in the winter months put some fleece throws over it to make it warmer to sit down on.

Dress Your Tables

A bare table can look cold and uninviting. Tablecloths can make a difference, even ones for small side tables. They can also add some extra colour to a room and if they are in warm tones, will help to add a warm feeling too. Put a vase of flowers or a bowl of fruit in the centre of the table to finish it off.


Having your lights low can help to create a cosier atmosphere. Using candles or glass lanterns can be a perfect way to get some mood lighting. Just make sure that they are in a safe place and the flame is not near anything that will burn.

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

Spending ban - Ideas to cutting back...

- this post contains affiliate links - You may have noticed a couple of my tweets recently that I am shamefully on a 'Spending Ban'. Now, this is something both Mark and I have come to agreement on, as looking at our recent credit card statements we I, have been a little too fluid with the spends lately. So, we are putting a little 'ban' on for a few weeks! Seriously do not know how I am going to cope!! Haha... Only joking! But it did get me to thinking though about where to cut back on everyday things and where each of us can save here and there. Especially at the moment where there's hardly any interest on savings and things do seem to be getting more and more expensive! So here's a bit of random list! Nothing in any particular order, just little ideas where we can all cut back in our every day lives! ********** * First of all - I know I said no particular order, but this ones a definite first and then it
