Decorating your home with beautiful prints doesn't have to cost the earth. There are so many stunning purveyors of chic designs out there to choose from that there's no excuse to have a less that pinterest-worthy home (hashtag no pressure).
I'm excited to announce that I have teamed up with the chic interiors store MDM Furniture to offer one lucky Honest Mum reader the chance to win a pair of these super stylish bar stools.
When Slumberdown got in touch about their Winter Warm range, it was the perfect timing for us, because folks, it's getting cold up North. Real cold. Make that freezing. Brrr!
Recently I was invited to film with popular BBC presenter Mark Watson but with a frustrating clash of dates, I just couldn't make it to London for the shoot day- so did want any vlogger worth her salt would do, and vlogged a piece directly to Mark.
Home decor has always been a passion of mine and I love searching out handcrafted, artisan home ware that will give my home a certain je-ne-sais-quoi, those statement pieces that will add character and show off my personal style.
I love my house, I really do but thanks to Pinterest I want to make some changes, some subtle, others a bit more dramatic to our house.
With the colder weather on the horizon and few solid months of being in the country, my mind has turned to home improvements.
We're a family of bookworms here in the Broadbent household, my Mum was a university lecturer and pretty much everyone on my Dad's side were teachers and headteachers, so the love of the written word is clearly in my DNA.
When founder of Mellow Duck, Helen Cook contacted me about a new venture she was setting up-upholstered pods perfect for families like mine, and in my hometown of Ilkley too (I grew up in this tiny town before moving to Leeds), I couldn't wait to add one to my own home and spread the word on her beautiful new business.
There's nothing lovelier in my book, than spending the weekend with happy-making friends and family. The weekends are our time to simply recharge our batteries and relax. We mostly spend them outdoors enjoying gorgeous Yorkshire, eating copious amounts of great food (luckily we have 4 restaurants in the family nearby) and resting from the busy week before, with the best of company. Last Sunday saw us do just that when we met up with our great friends Rachel, Richard and their sweet family in Leeds.
My talented friend, artist and blogger Emma Kaufmann of Emma's Pet Portraits got in touch recently offering to add some much-needed bursts of colour to our living room and new home.
