Obsessions #1

Hi guys!

How have you been?

Have you ever felt like there are so many thoughts in your head that make it impossible for you to make up your mind? Well that’s how I feel with all the things I like right now lol. So I decided to create this new theme called “Obsessions” to try and keep track of all the lovely stuff I find online and would like to buy for my flat.

So today’s obsessions are:

  1. The Alana Collection / MADE.com

The Rules of Decluttering

Hi guys!

Today got me thinking about cluttering.

100_3831

Why do people clutter? Is it for sentimental reasons? Is it laziness? Is it because we love shopping and sometimes this gets too much (also called hoarding)? Well, whatever the reasons might be, cluttering can become overwhelming and even take control of our lives. That could happen because cluttering is snicky (lol), meaning that one thing leads to another and before we realise it things get out of hand. Also, after a while, our eyes can get used to too many things around us so we don’t even notice the piles of stuff and the dust that gathered around us. However, even if we don’t mind the clutter – and many people don’t – we should pay attention to its hidden dangers. Continue reading

makeover after makeover #2

Hi guys!!

It’s good to be back!!! After a long break, between a massive project (coming soon), holidays and summer laziness, Blingo Design is back! I missed you guys – I hope you missed our small family too. But now, as September is just around the corner and school’s about to start again, we are here for more Interior Design ideas, inspiration, tips and shopping suggestions – plus we’re going to have a few amazing G I V E A W A Y S for you guys!!! This is so exciting!

So, today we thought it would be a great idea to show you another makeover on a budget (remember our vanity makeover after makeover?). This one is inspired by the beach – and lets face it, even though summer is nearly over, none of us really wants it to end. So why not bring all those good times and carefree memories in your bedroom?

This is what this L.A. bedroom originally looked liked…

Yes, it was a sad bedroom looking for some attention and love. Continue reading

Pantry organisation ideas

Hi guys!

Since we talked about making over your mason jars, let’s look at some other ideas for organising your cupboards/pantry.

  • Keeping everything clean and tidy could make your life easier when looking for that specific jar…
  • Also labelling everything really helps!
  • Use small baskets for placing random plastic bags or small containers.
  • Metallic portable shelves really help you see the objects you placed at the back of each shelf.
  • Categorise!
  • Spices can be placed in a drawer for easier access.
