Win £500 of the most durable paint around with Dulux

Decorating can be a pain when you’re up to your elbows in paint and there are still three more coats to do, but it’s also so fulfilling when it’s all finished perfectly. If only it could stay perfect.

Unfortunately, when there are children in the house, this usually means sticky finger marks, scuff marks and any number of scrapes and scratches, who knows where they came from.  Until now.

Dulux Diamond Paint

Now there is a game changer in the decorating market, one that means I can decorate my house, safe in the knowledge that the walls will be able to withstand dirt and scrapes, and stay looking as good as new for longer. It’s called the Diamond Range from Dulux Decorator Centre and it’s super durable and stain resistant, so much so that any marks or dirt wipe off it like magic.

Share your de-cluttering tips and win £100 of John Lewis vouchers with Everest

Woohoo!  Finally we have a moving date and already the daunting task of packing up the rental house is stressing me out and sending my mother into organisational over drive.  It also means that it is time to de-clutter!

Seriously, I have way too much stuff and actually don’t know how I have crammed it into our little two bedroom house.  I actually feel a small amount of pity for the removal firm that are going to have to take all the stuff from here into the new house, and I think they will certainly earn their money that day.

Win a £100 Gift Card for ASOS

I love to shop online, for me heading onto the web is a great stress free way of ordering a new outfit, or updating my wardrobe without the stress of heading into the city and fighting round the Bullring.  It also means I can indulge my wish list of things that I want to own from designer websites but will never actually own them because it would mean living on rice for years on end or selling body parts on eBay!

One store I can always rely on for great clothes is ASOS as they stock a little bit of everything at pretty awesome prices – I usually manage to find at least something I want and usually get lucky in their sale too! I also really like the ASOS Insiders feature that they offer which allows me to tap into a style I like and quickly find the stylists top picks for the season in just a few clicks (it is also a great tool for staying on budget).  If you’ve ever fancied a personal shopper this is a great way to start!
