Introducing.... SwitchArt

I think I may have made the discovery of the decade. Yes really!

I have plans for my hallway. You know, the hallway that recently acquired a WHOLE NEW STAIRCASE! (Still excited about it). The plan is to get the walls plastered and paint them white, before covering them in photos of the girls and our family and friends. 

So last month when I came across SwitchArt from I peed my pants a little bit. I'd contemplated covering the walls in canvases but knew that would work out super expensive and would require a lot of storage if I ever fancied swapping my pictures around... which we all know I will want to do. A lot. Because I change my mind. A lot.

SwitchArt is a magnetic frame that you can update with new magnetic prints whenever you want, and the pictures that you remove can just be rolled up or stored flat to come out at a later date. 

I ordered one of my favourite prints of the girls (taken on our trip to Wales earlier this year!) as well as an extra one of Mabel to play about with. Both were taken on my iPhone 5 and fiddled about with considerably in various photo editing apps, so they weren't super duper high resolution pics taken on a fancy camera. The quality is incredible on the prints, and they have been enlarged to a huge 41x41cm too!

Prices start at £19.99 for a 25x20cm frame, with the magnetic prints in that size costing £5.99 each. We were gifted ours for the purpose of this review.

Luxurious White Bed Linen from The White Company & Vanish

Sinking into a beautifully made bed, with freshly laundered, crisp, white linen is the epitome of bedtime luxury for me (and for Mabel Meatball by the looks of it!).  And there is nothing quite like seeing beautiful white sheets pegged out on the washing line on a bright and blustery Spring day either *looks out of window angrily at menacing grey skies*

I've had white bed linen in the past but I've never quite managed to get it to maintain it's purity and so after a few months I've ended up using the sheets as spares, or even cutting them up for rags. Since the smalls have come along I've pretty much given up on white anything, that is, until I was asked to be part of the Vanish Blogger Club earlier this year.

Following on from our last challenge, Vanish sent us bloggers out a beautiful set of Savoy Bed Linen from The White Company, along with some more of their Vanish Gold, and set us the task of keeping our sheets pristine. 

Four weeks (and four washes) later and my sheets still look brand new. I've been adding Vanish Gold to ALL my white washes since February and will carry on doing so FOREVER..... I am so majorly impressed with its magical powers of turning greying old items back to bright white (especially school blouses and socks!) and keeping new things looking just perfect.

Thanks to Vanish for asking us to join in with this challenge - and for converting me to using Vanish Gold in the process. I wouldn't be without it now! xoxo

Daily Outfit ♥ Art Deco Inspired

Navy Textured Dress, £65 - Wolf & Whistle
Black chunky ankle boots - Kurt Geiger AW14 (similar here)

I'm a big fan of East London fashion brand, Wolf & Whistle. Their collections are the epitome of femininity - and this art deco inspired navy and cream cotton dress, with a V-neckline and full tulip skirt is no exception!

It's fully lined, with a fitted waistband and a concealed zip at the back, and I am completely in love with the print. I teamed it with black tights and chunky boots but I think it would look great with bare legs and clogs in the summer tooxoxo
