We tend to carry out home renovations at key points in our journey up the property ladder. Some of us opt for them when we first move into a given property to make it a more comfortable and appealing place. Some of us will have renovations carried out when we intend to leave a property in order to make it more appealing to people shopping on the housing market. However, every now and then, renovations are essential. Perhaps you find that the structure of your home is problematic and needs to be altered for safety reasons. Maybe your kitchen is no longer functional, or your bathroom needs a serious upgrade for hygiene reasons. It’s sod’s law that these essential renovations generally tend to strike when we don’t have too much cash to spare. So, how can we go about making necessary renovations when our budget is tight? Read on to find out. Continue reading

Ahhhhh! Finances Causing You Stress? Here Are The Solutions

Welcome Back Boo,

Happy Friday!

There are some stressful situations we can all find ourselves in at some stage in our lives. Moving home, getting married, finances, careers. They can all have their fair share of struggles to our lives, however, your finances can be one of those matters that you can really struggle with from time to time. We all go through it. Those moments where more is going out than coming in. The times where you really want to have a bit of fun but your finances just won’t stretch. In many cases we can bury our head in the sand, but the truth is, we need to take on the situation once and for all. I wanted to share with you some of the ways you can sort the situation out once and for all.

Address your current financial situation

There is no point burying your head in the sand, and let’s face it, we can all be guilty of that at some stage in our lives. However, if you address the situation you may find things are not as bad as they seem. Printing off your bank statements and taking a moment to look at every debit is a great way to ensure that you know what is coming in and what is going out. You may find that you are still paying out for things you thought were cancelled or you no longer need. Getting these debts cancelled can free up some income you never knew you had. Allowing you to start as you mean to go on by being in more control.

What about debts?

Debts can be one of the biggest problems you find that you have. Credit cards, overdrafts and loans can all be debits from our account each month. However, if you tackle the situation you may find you can clear this off quicker. You could consider low interest debt consolidation loans that will give you a repayment plan of a term and lower monthly cost, which could then free up some more disposable income and give you a plan to be debt free. However, if this isn’t an option, focusing on the debts that cost you the most and piling as much money into them as possible is an excellent plan of defence.

Could you save on that spending?

Maybe you could actually save a little on your spending. Clothes and items you buy could have a reduced cost with things like vouchers and coupons to give you money off. Your food spend could be a big outgoing each week, but meal planning and even changing where you shop could give you that flexibility to reduce your spending on food and actually save a lot.

Are there ways to add to your income?

Finally, you could try and make some extra money here and there to boost your income. It could go towards paying off debts or just trying to get yourself in a better financial situation. It might be clearing your home of clutter and selling online, or just utilizing your time and earning extra income through side hustles. There are plenty of articles to help you get started.

I hope that this helps you to stop feeling stressed over your finances.

Remember to keep on slaying,

See you next time xoxo

Designing Your Best Dining Room

The dining room is the place where we sit, eat, talk, and often end up working. It has a good surface, probably Grandma’s china in a cabinet in the corner, and maybe some good drinks stored high up on shelves out of little hands’ way! But is that all you can do with the space? Is it as aerated and comfortable as possible, helping the food to go down and making sure everyone in your family can talk to each other openly and honestly?

It’s a good project now that you’ve got the summer ahead of you, and plenty of opportunities to have some roaring dinner parties. Now that you’ve done the kitchen, it’s time to dine in style and comfort by focusing your efforts on the dinner table. Here’s a couple of ideas that might just inspire you!

Got Guests Coming Over? Here’s How To Prepare Your Home For Their Arrival!

Welcome Back Boo,

It’s finally the weekend!!

Inviting guests to your home is one of those things you instantly regret. After the excitement of inviting them is over, you slowly realize that you’ve actually just asked people to your home. This means they will see your home, this means they will judge your home, and this means you need to get straight into action and prepare your property for their presence. If you’ve got guests coming over this weekend, or maybe plan on having some round in the future, then here’s how you get your home ready for their arrival. Continue reading

Is The Atmosphere In Your House Just Right?

Welcome Back Boo,

Happy Tuesday!

The atmosphere in your house matters a lot. No one wants to be treading on eggshells when they’re meant to be relaxing in their own space, and no one wants to be breathing in harmful chemicals or toxins when the air could simply be made a lot cleaner! Seeing as there’s both emotional and physical benefits to a good atmosphere, it’s clear we need to focus on it a little bit more.

It doesn’t have to be as hard as you might think to change. Sometimes, all you need to do (or have done professionally…), are some repairs! And because of all these easy strategies to make sure your home feels as peaceful as possible, with air that’s easy to breathe, there’s no stopping you from starting right now. Let’s get started with the areas of your house that could do with a lighter atmosphere than the one you currently have.
