A Stylish New Bathroom..

Now that my children are no longer babies and growing up fast, I am planning a new and stylish family bathroom. Getting away from a child friendly safe bathroom to something more grown up, modern, and fashionable.

Recently I have been introduced to Bella Bathrooms. They sell a wide range of beautiful products from updating your bathroom accessories to buying a whole bathroom suite.

I would love to go with the black and white monochrome look, for a stylish and elegant edge...

Happiness is a long hot bubble bath...
I am thinking how nice this hand crafted free standing bath would look!?!... With a glossy tiled floor and white satin walls..

Price: £278.60

"The main part of the house is a deep red and I have butterscotch carpet. And I have a bathroom with leopard skin floor, wallpaper and toilet" 'Macy Gray'

This ultra design black back to wall unit and toilet (Price: £230.10) and below Ultra Black Floor Mounted 2 Door Vanity Unit 600mm (Price: £286.98) would fit perfectly with the bathroom.

"If I want to be alone, some place I can write, I can read, I can pray, I can cry, I can do whatever I want - I go to the bathroom" 'Alicia Keys'

"There was a point in my 40s when I went into the bathroom with a bottle of wine, locked the door, and said, 'I'm not coming out until I can totally accept the way that I look right now"   'Sharon Stone'

This traditional Marquis heated towel rail in chrome and black would look lovely against the white satin walls and match the chrome on the taps and shower. Price: £318.50

 To finish the whole look off, a few accessories :

"I'd rather be able to face myself in the bathroom mirror than be rich and famous"   'Ani DiFranco'

A HiB Lynk bathroom mirror with glass shelf  Price: £140.40

"As a kid, I'd go into the bathroom when I was having a tantrum. I'd be in the bathroom crying, studying myself in the mirror. I was preparing for future roles" 'Adam Sandler'

A Croydex black foam soap dispenser Price: £10.28

"My kids always perceived the bathroom as a place where you wait it out until all the groceries are unloaded from the car"   'Erma Bombeck'

HiB Nero Chrome Spotlights Price: £110.64

Before I can save up for my super stylish bathroom I have to sort our en-suite out first. The shower cubical that everyone in the house uses!! It is getting old, leaking and the shower door is coming away!!

"For marriage to be a success, every woman and every man should have her and his own bathroom. The end"  'Catherine Zeta-Jones'

Premier Pacific single sliding shower door with optional side panel Price: £173.39

What do you think of my picks?

Visit Blackpool Competition...

If you read my blog you will have guessed we all love Blackpool ( if your visiting for the first time hit the Blackpool tags below, to see some of the fun times we have had!! ).

When I first met my husband we had our first holiday in Blackpool. We have been here every year since, spending honeymoons pregnancies and arguments!! with the locals...  The ever present backdrop of the Tower, Three piers, Rides and Mooky evokes a special place in all my families hearts..
Sometimes I think I surf the Internet without even reading?  As yesterday a page I had seen before  (and obviously not taken in) I noticed the Tots100 are holding a competition to become a Blackpool Ambassador It ends tomorrow!! How have I not seen this before ? Wake up Claire!!

George/ASDA's Back to School 'Little Designers' Challenge ...

The team from George at Asda asked me if I would like to take part in a Back to School 'Little Designers' Challenge.

I am always up for something different so said "count me in".

 A challenge that involves one of my children makes it all the better.


The challenge is for my son who has to get creative in personalising his very own back pack they provided.

It sounded great as an added bonus one of the lucky mums will win £150 worth of ASDA vouchers (and the runner up as well as the blog with the most comments winning a £50 ASDA voucher)!!

Hint Hint!!

Also I got to choose around £20-00 worth of school necessities from George school uniform just for taking part in the challenge.

An additional £20 ASDA Voucher is sent to mum’s who aren’t lucky enough to scoop one of the top 3 prizes as a thank you for our efforts in participating,so this was a win win situation..

I was so pleased that I managed to buy the full school uniform for £20-50 as my son was in the bigger size for everything (being younger you would get the same things well under £20-00 such a bargain)!!

I got-
  • 2 school polo Shirts
  • 1 jumper
  • 1 pair of trousers 
  • and a pair of shoes all for £20-50...
Asda have a great range of back to school uniform at fantastic price and the great thing is you can buy on line or in store or both depending which you prefer.

The Olympics may be over for the minute, however in our house its like a mini Olympics everyday.

Although that's sometimes just navigating the kids bedrooms!!.

I have 4 children and they all love to sport. Sport is something we do most days and the kids love keeping both themselves and me fit.

With this in mind here is my sons design....

Drum roll please ...

I love my sons bag and he is very pleased with it too.He can't wait to take it to school with his PE kit in...

Obviously this post might only be available for so long as the International Olympic Committee do not like people using their Olympic rings in anything,so we shall await the lawyers letter.

My son is only 9 and he is not going to sell the bag or use it for commercial gain,it might inspire him to be an Olympian, so please do not be too hard on him Mr Rogge.!

About this post-we were lucky to be asked by Asda to take part in this great competition and was sent all the above school uniform and a creative pack for my son to make his bag.

I was not paid for this post and all thoughts are my own honest opinion.

Update we did not win the best bag or most comments prize,we did however get sent a £20-00 Asda voucher to spend in-store which was lovely of them ...
