Binge-worthy TV shows for Maternity Leave

I started my maternity leave 4 weeks before Freya was due. Funnily enough, my words to my colleagues were that I would more than likely have the baby early as I wanted to spend those 4 weeks watching lots of TV and working on my blog.

I obviously jinxed myself as 2.5 weeks later Freya arrived into the world and all the TV shows I had planned to watch were side-lined to being a mama. Now Freya is 7 weeks old, we are slowly getting into a better routine which means binge-watching TV shows is back on my agenda for a rainy afternoon. I am not ashamed to admit that a bit of bad weather is welcome in this house as it means lots of playtime indoors and TV show watching. We are lucky to have some excellent quality televisions in our house to watch these shows on however if I could, I would absolutely purchase a Panasonic Oled 4K TV as the quality of the screen is just amazing, and makes everything clearer.

It’s all about slow cooker stews, warming soups and getting cosy. Have you ever thought about changing the decor in your kitchen in time for autumn? It can really add to the seasonal vibe, and it doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive.

Think leather stools for your breakfast bar, copper-coloured pendant lights over the dining table, brickwork-inspired tiles, open shelves, and visible pan racks. If you’re in need of furniture, go for pre-loved vintage styles. If you have beams in your kitchen, accentuate them with a fresh wood stain!

Having recently spent a whole week turning our office into a nursery, I have found myself either browsing websites online looking for inspiration or browsing the aisles of hardware stores to find something or other that we need.

There is only one room in our whole house that has a feature wall with wallpaper but it’s something I have pondered over when decorating the nursery or thinking about revamping a room in the house for the future.

Collectively these brands have been providing inspirational wall fashion for over 100 years and their designers are known for creating innovative products. When browsing the site, you can choose between searching by colour, room or even by style.

To celebrate finishing decorating, I have teamed up with Inspired Wallpaper to giveaway a £75 voucher to use on their site. This is UK only and the competition will last for 7 days via the Rafflecopter below. I will then draw a name at random and once contact has been made with the winner, Inspired Wallpaper will liaise with them directly to sort out the details. So happy entering and Good Luck!
