Check out my new Business Cards!

Since starting blogging an incredible 16 months ago, I have wanted to get some business cards made. I’ve been to a few blog events now and watched in jealous as bloggers handed out some incredible looking cards. Well 2016 is the year to start getting stuff done and my business cards were no exception.

I was kindly offered the opportunity to design my own cards and receive some of a high quality by Aura Print who are a fantastic design company from Huddersfield. Since I was going through a redesign with my blog at the time, I was pretty stumped on the design I actually wanted, so I left it in the very capable hands of the design team of the company.

The basics I chose were the colour I wanted to feature which you can see was Pink, and the writing that I wanted to appear including my social media names. After this the design team sent back their ideas and asked me if there was anything I wanted to change. I have to say I was so impressed with the speed they responded to me and how quick they were with the whole design process.

Soon enough it was time for the business cards to be printed up and delivered to my doorstep. The printing process seemed incredibly quick as well to say there were a fair few business cards sent my way. They arrived in a huge pink box packed up in bright pink tissue paper. The business cards were neatly packed into plastic containers and even had an elastic band secured round to ensure delivery safety.

The first thing I noticed is the thickness and quality of the cards. I’ve had business cards through my work before and they tore up fairly easily and got damaged with the slightest bit of water. These cards look durable like the JCB mobile phone. I think it would be difficult to just rip these in half or damage them easily. My boyfriend thought they were fab and was a little jealous when he saw the quality of them.

The whole design process from start to finish with these cards was flawless. The communication levels from the company were spot on and I was never left wondering what was going on. The cards come in an amazing 15 colours and the design team are happy to work with you on anything you want really. My cards have amazing beauty related pictures faded into the cards like lipstick and makeup, it’s a great touch with the design and perfect for my blog. If you are looking for some new business cards or know someone who is, then send them to this wonderful Yorkshire company. I’ve loved handing them out to people who have been super impressed with the quality and design of them.

Duvet Cover Update from Yorkshire Linen

I am not ashamed to admit that recently, I have become addicted to buying new bed linen. I went to Primark recently and treated myself to a new duvet set and got really excited about getting a new grey sheet to match. WHO AM I? WHAT HAVE I TURNED INTO? I always find myself browsing through sites and have spotted Yorkshire Linen a couple of times due to the fact that they offer reasonably priced bedding as well as curtains, cushions, home essentials and kitchen and dining homeware.

I do love when I put new bedding on the bed and it gives my room a whole new look really, I generally choose darker colours or even white/grey bedding. When the lovely people at Yorkshire Linen asked to work with me, I was able to choose some new bedding to review at home. This beautiful stag print duvet caught my eye as I absolutely adore stags and would happily have a room dedicated to this. They were very generous and sent me a king size set which is the size of my duvet. I wish my room looked the stock photo from the site however I have no fireplace or exposed brick walls. I still like that it warmed my room up a bit and gave it a refresh.

I thought I would choose some of the site’s pieces that would help accessorize my room some more.

I think this little Bear Hug door stop is gorgeous and the beige would look fab in my room with the duvet set. I also love this check throw for over the bed, red looks fab with beige tones and makes it look very cosy and autumnal. I can’t wait to add some accessories to my room to make it look really warm and lovely.

I hope you like this post and feel inspired to change-up your bedroom colours and bed linen.
