Polarn O. Pyret Limited Edition 40th Birthday Collection for Kids

We were recently given the chance to review an outfit for Sophia from - Polarn O. Pyret Limited Edition 40th Birthday Collection.

If you haven't already seen the collection then be sure to take a look at their mix and match colourful stripes and prints that come in the birthday collection.

I'm a bit sad when it comes to bright colours for the girls, they don't seem to have many pieces that really stand out, which is a shame really as Sophia looked lovely in the outfit she was sent (think it's time for Mummy to jazz up the girls Winter wardrobe!)

Sophia was sent the lovely Funky Animal Print Dress £28  along with the Block Colour Tights  £10 which matched perfectly with the dress.

They have a lovely range of Knitwear and Festive  party Pieces over on their website & clothes are available from birth right through to age 12.

We love the Limited Edition collection from Polarn O. Pyret!

Living Room Make Over with Desenio

Since moving into my home early last year I've been meaning to update my living room decor.  All my canvas prints are years old and I feel now are slightly, outdated! 
I wanted a new fresh look to my living room, away from the pretty floral bright canvas prints, something a bit more chic and trendy.  I wanted to go for a touch of black & white for my wall prints, I'd never thought of the whole black and white print before I started seeing some home inspiration ideas on Pinterest.

I was asked by Desenio a Swedish online company if I would like to review their prints and frames, I was so excited it took me a while to browse through their fabulous collection of prints, they literally have so many to choose from, its great. I wanted everything!! I think there is a style for everyone in their collections.

I chose 3 lovely black and white prints that I thought would go nicely in my living room, I wanted them to be simple but chic, and I think I chose the perfect prints!

The first poster I went for the largest one on my wall is the black poster, this was my ultimate fave of them all, the simplicity yet stylishness really caught my eye & it looks absolutely fab on my wall.

The two smaller ones are the Marc Jacobs, Beautiful amazing quote print poster, This would be great for any room in the house, I thought it worked really well next to the black poster, the quote about beauty kind of tied in with the largest print.  Lastly is the black feather  poster, this also really caught my eye, such a simple print yet makes such a difference when its up in the frame.

I have yet to finish my living room but the prints and frames have made such a difference already.  

The black and white touch really does give a fresh new look to the room. 

The prints & frames are really affordable so you don't have to spend a fortune making small changes.  I will be adding more of the Desenio prints to my collection as I jazz up the rooms in my home!
