The dog owners dream! - Furbo #Ad

Im sure im not the only dog owner out there who would love to know what our furry friends are up to whilst we're out. And how great would it be to be able to speak to them and throw them treats too... all from your mobile phone?

This is where the Furbo comes in! The furbo is a camera which you place in your home so that whilst you're away you can speak, feed and interact with your pets! The Furbo also has a 'barking' alert, so for whatever reason when your pet starts barking you get a notification on your phone so you are able to check on them, genius right?

Not only is the Furbo brilliant at training your pets but it is also stylish and modern! This means it doesn't stand out in your home environment and it would suit any room, kitchen or lounge.

I can't imagine not having my Furbo now, being able to check on what my two dogs are doing whilst I am not with them is so comforting.

And if you purchase your Furbo now you also save 30% off the retail price making it only £129.00 instead of £249.00... everyone loves a bargain right?

Maci's toybox DIY - Upcycling

First of all I want to state that I have never done anything like this before, this was a big first for me!

Ever since I found out I was pregnant with Maci I knew that I wanted her to have a beautiful toy box for all of her treasures but little did I know how expensive they are! 

So I decided to upcycle one!

I found this toybox on and it was in my local area so I went and collected it and started to plan what I was doing to add to this box. It was perfect for what I envisioned.

The first thing I did was paint the originally white box, grey. Of course you can paint the main box whatever colour you wish, I chose grey to go with the theme of our home. 

Once I chose the colour of the box I decided I wanted the letters to be a 'blush pink' colour. I brought the wooden letters from Ebay and before purchasing I measured the front side of the box to get an idea of the size of letter I wanted.

Once I had painted the wooden letters, I finally completed them with Pink flower details from The Range. I stuck the flowers and letters on with a hot glue gun to be make sure that they wouldn't come off and become a choking hazard.

To complete the Toybox I added 'slow close' hinges to the lid which were from my local DIY store although you can purchase these online. Overall I am very happy with how this DIY project turned out. In total it cost around £35 for the materials (including the second hand toybox!) which was a big saving compared to the £120 toybox I initially wanted to buy Maci. 

I hope this may of inspired you to give upcycling a try... if you do, please tag me in your creations over on Instagram!
