Colourful Boho Bedroom

This Colourful Boho Bedroom is a cheery and fun space for anyone not afraid of a little colour in their lives! We’ve been in our home for over 11 years now, and over the years our kids rooms have had many different paint jobs.  When we moved in, at the time we only had the 2 kids, and our oldest was 4 and our youngest was 3, so as you can imagine, the colours have changed a lot over the years…we’ve had taupe, lavender, mint green and blue. But my favourite is definitely the current colour of my daughter’s room.  […]

I am working with Hoover to test and review some of their home products, and I’m sharing my thoughts on them! But as always, all opinions and statements in this post are my own.  Today I’m sharing details on the Hoover’s REACT™ Cordless Stick Vacuum, and my thoughts on it! I vacuum a lot in my home…with 3 kids, a fluffy dog and a cat, I have to.  Honestly, it’s something I do almost daily.  I hate sweeping (it’s my least favourite cleaning chore) so I vacuum almost exclusively.  But dragging out the vacuum to do a quick clean up can […]
