Bring Some New Life Into Your Home's Unappreciated Spaces

We all want to be able to get the most out of our homes. After all, if you're going to be spending the majority of your time somewhere then it's only natural to want to make sure that it's the most pleasant and comfortable space possible. That being said, a lot of us tend to fall into the habit of only really focusing on certain parts of our homes rather and ignoring others. When that happens, it can undo a lot of the hard work that you've done elsewhere and leave you feeling frustrated and unhappy in your home. With that in mind, here are some under appreciated spaces in your home that you might want to show a little more love to in the future.

Your bathroom

The bathroom is probably the single most unappreciated room in your home despite just how important it is. The trouble is that most of the time we tend to think of our bathrooms purely in terms of function rather than in terms of form. That being said, there are a lot of things that you can do in order to help bring your bathroom back to life. Replacing the tiling around your bathroom can make a huge difference. Something like a White Sparkle Shower Panel can make it feel a whole lot brighter and cleaner. The same goes for replacing some of the fittings in your bathroom like the taps. Old and grimy looking taps are always going to drag the look of your bathroom down.

Your attic

For most of us, the attic is little more than a space to store things and dump whatever we don't want to think about. However, you could be using it so much more effectively. Lots of people have found the benefits of converting their attics into useable spaces that can function as an office, a spare room, or just somewhere to kick back and relax. Not only that but it's a great way to add value to your home as well.

Your kitchen

The kitchen is another room that we tend to only really think about in terms of function but the truth is that it's often the real hub of the house, which means that you're going to want to take better care of it. Things like bringing as much light into your kitchen as possible and painting it bright colours can help to make it feel so much more alive. If you're stuck in a dark and dingy kitchen then you're going to end up resenting every second you spend hunched over the stove.

The most important thing to remember is that you need to treat your home like a single space. It's all too easy to fall into the habit of only really thinking about the rooms in your home as individual spaces rather than pieces of a greater whole. Think about how the rooms complement one another and how they flow into each other. Only then are you going to be able to create a home that you're really happy with.

Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginner

~ Disclaimer - this post is just a light hearted look at the very basic blogging tips. I do not have high DA or high stats, but I thought some of the things I have picked up over years may be helpful. Even if just one person takes one thing I've shared as useful info, then this post is worthwhile. This post also contains affiliate links ~ I'm laughing at myself a little bit writing this post as I want to be very clear that I'm not an award winning blogger, I don't have a high da score and I don't really have many page views at the moment. You're probably wondering to yourself why am I even writing this post if I'm not a far flung award winning blogger? Well, this is it. I call myself a blogger, because well I have a blog and I document stuff. I've had my blog for over eight years now and even though I haven't had a breakthrough (yet) I have picked up a couple of things along the way. I have also been asked before by friends about starting a blog, so

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

How to do your cars ITV/MOT in Spain

  ~ Disclaimer - this post is not associated with any ITV centres in Spain or anything that they maybe connected with them. I am also not a car mechanic of any sorts and I would always advise to seek professional advice. This post is simply sharing my experience of an ITV ~ It's that time when Marks car is due it's ITV, which is similar to the UK's MOT. In Spain your car has it's first ITV check when it's 4 years old. Then every 2 years up until the car is 10, then it's checked every year. When living in another country and not really knowing the lingo, these type of things can seem a little daunting at times and it may feel easier to just throw money at things to get someone to do it for you.  Which I think happens a lot when it comes to getting your cars ITV. A lot of garages offer a service where they will do a pre-itv check and then take your car to the test centre and do it for you. Sounds great doesn't it. Which it is don't get me wrong at all, it&
