Bedroom Storage Inspiration

Hey everyone,

Finally weekend! Yey! We are going to have few changes in bedroom soon. Our built in wardrobe is going to be removed! I only can say Hallelujah to that :D! Since we rented this flat it felt that we adjusted to the wardrobe rather than the wardrobe was working for us and because it's built in it has serious damp problems, so I have been moaning about it for a while but hey I am so relieved that it is finally saying bye bye! :)  So I am looking around for new wardrobes and storage solutions for two. I have to say I am not keen to share a wardrobe with my boyfriend so it has to work for both of us. And I have seen some nice pieces and affordable too in Ikea. So here it is my inspiration for the wardrobes and bedroom storage.

MUSKEN Wardrobe with 2 doors+3 drawers IKEA Adjustable shelves make it easy to customise the space according to your needs.
I like this one for it's rustic polished look. Nice colour and the fact that were is to sides separate so one for me and one for Matt :) but it's quite small so we would need other storage as well.PAX Wardrobe IKEA 10 year guarantee. Read about the terms in the guarantee brochure.

This sort of size of wardrobe I think would be perfect for us and has nice storage solution build in, would keep us organised:) Nice and bright too.


PAX Wardrobe IKEA 10 year guarantee. Read about the terms in the guarantee brochure.

I love this one as well looks well organised inside. Not too dark would make room darker. I think this is perfect for too plus very modern look with sliding doors.

I think this one is an ultimate wardrobe solution for two!ANEBODA Wardrobe IKEA Adjustable hinges ensure that the doors hang straight.
I like this one looks light and modern and we could get two, one each because it's so so cheap only £39!!!

But first of all I will like to see the space after our old one9s removed and feel it where and how things should look and be. I hope you enjoyed my wardrobe inspiration!

Girls Powder Corner Inspiration

         
Me and my boyfriend and our beloved pets live in a compact flat. And recently I have been looking to create my own little powder corner were I can get ready, relax, basically do my own thing:) So I thought I will put my make up vanity table inspiration.

This one I like a lot; perfect for small spaces! Hanging a folded chair I think it's an amazing idea! Opens up the space and no more health and safety issue of tripping over!:)

         Carve out a little space just for pampering. Mount the EKBY ALEX wall shelf to create a dressing table without taking up valuable floor space.



Another one I love is from John Lewis. It's very stylish and doesn't look like it needs a lot of room, perfect! I like how the wooden legs combine with a modern top and an accent of grey.



         Buy House by John Lewis Notch Dressing Table Online at johnlewis.com




What I like about this one is that if you want to keep your table top clear, you can! It takes lot more room but you could put some flowers on to decorate it without worrying that you wont have room for make up. I think it's beautifully designed space.

              Organize a makeup and jewelry station with   modular containers, use tine fabric sacs for jewelry, and fill a vase with sand   to hold makeup brushes


I think keeping it bright and simple is the secret :) I am sure I will let you know how I am getting on with my powder corner soon;)  I hope you like my inspiration!

Managing Small Income

Hi everyone. I think it's time for me to talk about money :))! And I can hear the song in my head ''it's all about the money money money... :)'' I thought I will share my experience how I got on top of my finances and hopefully you can find some useful tips in my post! I work 30 hours a week in the shop so you can guess I don't make tons of money.. so for this reason I am going to talk how I am managing a small income. I have worked in retail 20 hours before when I was a student and you can imagine I even had less money plus I had to pay for my course!
Just in Style how to manage small income

Overdrafts and Loans

While I was studying and paying for my course I couldn't afford my course with the amount I was earning. Living costs are expensive plus I had to pay for the studies! So I took an overdraft to help me with living expenses and I was paying for my course quarterly.  So during the time I was a student overdraft really helped me out but unfortunately occasionally I used to face bank charges when I went over my over draft plus the interest and plus arrange overdraft charge which was introduced to my account later. So the bank was making their money from my money! In the time I had my overdraft all charges and interest I had over the years probably was pretty much the same as the sum of my overdraft! The problem with debt is when you don't make much money it's hard to get rid of it and this is what happened to me. We all know money makes money! So the less we have the harder it gets!

So this is what I did to pay my overdraft off. Next day after I get payed or convinet day to go to the bank I would go there and reduce my overdraft. I think I was reducing it by £25 a month. Some months I skipped some months I would go to the bank and have like £80 in my account and week left until I get paid I would think sod it and reduce it buy £50 and go the rest of the week without money. I have to say it was tough but this was my goal! I think people in the bank thought I am crazy because I had no money and I was paying off my overdraft! But I just didn't want to waste any of my money to bank charges so I thought I could put this money towards my savings rather then pay banks for no reason! And if I reduce my overdraft allowance straight after I was payed I didn't felt any different seemed to have same amount of money just less overdraft! And in under a year I paid it off completely! After I did I felt a massive relief!!!! So my advice here is only borrow money from the bank when it is absolutely necessity because it takes time to pay it off, it's never easy and start repaying as soon as you can!

Savings

Start saving as soon as you can even if you are in debt! There are lots of savings accounts you can open with a pound. It's always good to have hundred pounds aside on days in need! What helps me to save I try to open savings account where I wouldn't have easy access to it. If I would have some money in my account I always spent it to the last penny but if I put for example a £10 in savings account I wouldn't feel the difference but in long term I know that money is there for me if I need it. Its always good to shop around for the best intrest savings account. Useful websites to compare are:

1.www.moneysupermarket.com
2.www.moneysavingexpert.com
3.www.gocompare.com

I have no intention to advertise these websites it's just I use them myself when I need an advice and I compare these websites for the best deal I am looking for!

Cut your Bills

Well what we did with my boyfriend before we just sign in with providers and kept on paying our bills... without knowing if we give them a call as a loyal customer and ask for a discount they would give it to us!!!! And it was an eye opener, I just wish we had done it sooner! We cut on TV, internet, phone package bill up to I can't remember exactly around £20! And I asked the lady if I would call in the future would I be able to get another discount and she said YES!!!  So yeah I am a regular caller now:)))!!! We just need to crack with our gas bill! In long term saves quite few hundreds so definitely recommend to try!

Budget Planning

We did spread sheet on Excel on one side writing down the income and in parallel down the expenses. Its very easy to manage budget on the excel don't need to think ohh where did I put that paper again?!  It's all there on the desktop and it's easy to change if you need to the income or the outcome. Planning your meals week a head and eating at home always a cheaper option. Make sure then you buy food include lunches because making lunches at home is always cheaper and healthier! Being a sensible shopper always helps. I discovered where my money was going by keeping receipts. Nearly every day I would pass Waitrose and get my free coffee and get something to go with it. And at a time its seems like it wont make a difference but it does! Especially after I counted that little extra was around £50 a month and it was something I could go without! So yeah  I could off put that money into something more useful. I am not saying not to treat ourselves I am just saying even if it cost £1 it all adds up in the end! Writing down expenses is always good so you know how much you could save in the end of the month (maybe for your dream holiday) of course if you stick with your budget.

Goal

Having a clear vision where you want to be in a future always helps! So have a goal what you are saving for: holiday, house, car, wedding ring:) what ever you save for having clear vision will help you to get where you want! At the moment I am going to start saving for a summer holiday:) Can't wait for that!

Jars

To stop me from spending and lighten my purse every time I have change I would put in the jar. And surprisingly it's possible to save like this! On the days in need or then we are short cash for take away jar would come in handy! And when it's full we would count all 1p and 2p and take it to the bank and to my surprise it was £9 there last time! So it's always handy to have a jar especially to pop out to get bar of chocolate in the evening when I am desperate for something sweet!

And most important thing is be happy and appreciate what you have rather than worrying what you don't have!

OK. So I think I am done here for today I hope it was somewhat helpful or at least encouraging to start being saver rather than big spender :) Let me know
what your thoughts are on this post! And thank you for reading!

My Easter

Hey everyone! Happy Easter! Well, even it's Monday already! I hope all of you enjoyed the long weekend! I was so lucky I didn't need to work! Felt like proper holiday! This is what I like when having a weekend feels like far far away from normal routine:) Easter is obviously a festive season so that of course involves lot's of eating and especially lots and lots of chocolate eggs. We ate normal eggs too because we painted boiled eggs on Saturday night and played cracking egg game on Sunday morning for breakfast. Hazel got couple of eggs as well and it was her first ever Easter with us which was very nice! I can't believe she is such a big baby now, 8 months already! Time has been flying for us for sure! I made almond Swedish tarte cake which I found on Pinterest. Which was very tasty and rich, very filling too (maybe because the recipe needed 8 eggs)! Yep it was all about the eggs this Easter:) So here are some pictures :) Please let me know your favorite egg:)
