Anyone who knows me knows that I love anything to do with storage or packaging. Honestly I am a marketers dream when it comes to trying to sell anything in a pretty box or packet!
When you live in a small house one of the first things you realise is that you need to get creative with storage. Even the smallest items left lying around can make a whole room look messy. With two girls who feel that they need to have every small toy known to man and with my hobbies being cross stitch and crafting, storage for all of it is essential.
My home is pastel colours down stairs with black woodwork which means that plants and any accessories really stand out. I wanted to choose some storage baskets that would have lids to close away the clutter but also be pretty enough to be part of the room. To stand out as decor rather than look like storage containers if that makes sense.
I love working with Beautify as they sell the most amazing storage and home solutions and I fell in love the pom pom detail on this set of three baskets. Each one fitting inside the other for storage of its own when not in use. In small medium and large these baskets would make ideal plant containers or storage in any room of the house.
I chose to keep one in the bathroom to house all of the toiletries, we have so many as the girls are obsessive with bubble baths and lotions etc, one in my bedroom for my cross stitch bits and another in the living room as a planter. It pulls together all of the rooms too and i love seeing one wherever I go.
The lidded baskets are perfect for hiding away bits and pieces. In sizes small and medium and made from white rope with metallic thread these baskets will complete any room. The one I keep in the living room is filled with snacks and mini biscuits etc for the girls, we love having movie nights and knowing we have bits on hand is perfect. The other is in my bedroom and houses all of the tea light candles for my ritual work etc – I have to admit when I open the lid the aroma that hits me is a wonderful thing!
I needed somewhere to house all of my paperwork, ritual clothes and throws etc and chose the set of two metal trunks. Mint green and pale pink with champagne coloured handles these are just the most perfect trunks I have ever seen! The great thing about these too is that the hinges stay open so you can load and unload without having to have an extra set of hands to lift the lid! The pair are made from strong steel and are not heavy at all so ideal for moving around.
The girls keep asking if they can have them for their bedroom and I just know the pastels will go well in their room so I may have to give in…for now though I can’t part with them!

For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
