How to make fashion inspired DIY cushions covers! Video

I always loved simple DIY.  I found some unused cushion covers (or pillow covers if you like to name it this way). Simple white covers that usually worked as back up pillow for my comfort, by I had so many of them already. I decided to jazz them up a little. I found some lovely cushions before but were quite expensive so for this #swifthomehacks I decided to show you how can you re-use these white simple covers (whether pillow or cushions) and create something really simple and super quick and most of all super cheap!

How to find the perfect sofa for your home

I have recently got sofa upgrade in my rented pad, thanks to the kindness of my landlord! Yay! We had small black two seater sofa, that I had pretty much enough of. The sofa was okey, for those who loves leather seating... and personally, I prefer fabric sofa’s in corner option. I like to lie down and stretch my legs, and bring duvet from bedroom.. wrap like a burrito and watch Pretty Little Liars! I am extremely grateful we were able to finally change it and that my landlord allowed me to pick one! (picture on top Loaf.com hunker sofa)

VQ Hepburn II DAB Bluetooth Radio Review & Giveaway!

Believe me or not but in a past 3 years, I didn’t really listen to music at home! Not at all! Very rare, and perhaps in some occasions when I had guests, an MTV channel was on and that’s about that! I often listen to music at work with headphones on, or on my way to and from work but never actually at home! I actually felt okey with it… until I got VQ Hepburn 2 DAB Bluetooth Radio! Literally now, as soon as I enter the property, I turn the radio on! I can’t even express how much I love this radio! VQ Hepburn MK II DAB Bluetooth Radio not only surprised me with the fantastic quality of sound but also many very useful functions!

6 must have pool side essentials

This year, I am really hoping for some nice holiday! I haven’t got anything booked yet! Although, I think it will be the last minute one! With my super busy lifestyle lately, I really started looking forward and plan ahead. As I do recently with all my blog posts, social media etc. I schedule, plan and organise everything in advance, therefore, my holiday will be planned ahead too! Every single time I am on holiday, when unpacking in my pretty hotel room, I always discover I have forgotten something! This year I am making my list, so it won’t happen! I also decided to share the list with you!So, as well as the usual items I would put into my suitcase, what essentials should I be packing for the poolside? Perhaps this simple list should be helpful to you as well!

Creating a sense of space in rented apartment, Video

My living room is an open space sharing with kitchen. It worked for me this way for a couple of months until I started to feel little cramped there! I had books around the space, as I was still at university, I was eating by my coffee table and my living room perhaps didn’t exist as I didn’t really watch TV or use this space as relaxing space. Until I got fed up and started to make this space a little more usable.

Smart styling bedroom tips to help you sleep better!

When I was at University, for whole 3 years I was fighting against insomnia! All 3 years I was like walking zombie. I have no clue, how on earth did I manage to finish uni with first class degree and Dean’s Award?! I am just ace! ha! On a serious note, there is nothing funny about insomnia. I went through the worst days you can imagine. I could go for days with no sleep at all, study and work. It was awful! I will never forget these days! I was even put on sleeping aids by doctors but I refused to take them, as I didn’t want to become dependant on them.

small apartment layout
Most of us are troubled with small spaces, but there is really no need to put up with them. Whilst enlargement and renovation may be out of the question, there are a few tricks that you can employ to make your small spaces seem larger and which are easy to implement yourself. I perhaps mentioned this tousand times but you should know by now that I live in the tiniest apartment ever, despite having 2 bedrooms which one is totally cramped! Yep, with all my landlord stuff that I have put there, so I could replace furniture in other rooms! Sacrifices!

Does diet & detox tea works? Teami Blends: the most honest review you’ve seen!

teami blend detox diet tea review
Last year, right before summer my Facebook was flooded with advertising of the ‘revolutionaries’ detox and diet tea’s that helps you with bloating, skin and general weight loss. I was intrigued! I bet most of my female friends were intrigued too! Why we wouldn’t be??! Sounds easy, you drink tea in the morning and in the evening and then magically the scale number is down, your skin is beautiful and just by judging all the skinny and tanned beautiful smiley girls, who hold a cup of tea is must a pretty genius option isn’t?? Well, I decided to try!

How to create gallery wall in rented space

When you rent an apartment and dream of a gallery wall, this is impossible to achieve as of course you can’t hang picture frames! If you like me, rent from an agency with restrictions, who came to your apartment every 4 months to check everything is still in place! I sometimes get comments from people, saying ‘Oh you could just repaint or hang picture and ‘’make good walls’’ when moving out, well, it’s not that easy! When you have a contract only for 6months and you don't know whether you gonna be kicked out after 6 months or they would kindly let you stay?

How to Create DIY Ombre Bedding


Perhaps, I am not only the one addicted to Pinterest, I know there is more of us! It only seems like I am going to re-pin one and before I know it, there has been few hours of me pinning and pinning and going through thousands of beautiful photos. One of those I am most hooked up to is the bedding! I have an obsession! Especially, natural cotton and linens in all sort of shades of grey, white, and pastels! I do however have special feelings for the ombre style! Inspired by celebrities many years ago I have done my hair, then changed to pink. The ombre style looks absolutely beautiful on bed linens too! I have researched many companies and sadly I find the most beautiful ombre a little too expensive for my budget.

Outdoor Fashion for Camping or Glamping. What to wear?!


I am like super excited for the next month! We going glamping!! Surprisingly, I only came across this 'name' last month and didn’t even know that such a thing like glamping existed! For those who doesn’t know, glamping is a short cut of Glamorous Camping which is basically a prettier camping style. We did traditional camping 2 years ago with my boyfriend parents in Croatia and I loved it! I don’t mind this type of holidays, it makes me sleep less and explore more rather than staying in exclusive hotels, plus I can spend more money on some fashion! Yay! (on left Joules lovely wellies)

Designer’s plastic chairs vs replica’s, crime or cheap style?

eames dsw replica chair
I have been blogging for a year now, usually keeping quite safe, well if blogging about all type of pastels in rented space we can call safe ;) Today, I wanted to touch a subject that has been quite bothering me for a while now. I want to talk about replica’s furniture. As you know I am an interior designer, and I do share values and respect toward other designer works, whether interior or product designers. I know myself how hard is to create something, and keep it unique. I also know how easy for others is to ‘steal ideas’ or let’s call it ‘’borrow’. I think this subject may me be quite controversial and I want to talk about negatives and positives about it. (Picture on left - Cult Furniture summer edition)
