SHOPPING AT TK MAXX THIS CHRISTMAS – AD

SHOPPING AT TK MAXX THIS CHRISTMAS – AD

IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR…. AND THE  BUSIEST!

I have finally started my Christmas shopping and where better to shop than Tk Maxx.

Shopping in TK Maxx is always such a pleasure, I love how all the items are in their  designated area so I can shop with no stress. I can literally spend ours walking the aisles looking at what they have to offer.

Tk Maxx house so many big labels at small prices and because I have so many people to buy for all at different ages and with different interest I needed to visit a store I could buy something for everyone whilst not breaking the bank.

I also like to try and find items that are a bit more unique, TK Maxx  certainly didn’t  disappoint  when I was looking for something a little bit different.

A BETTER NIGHTS SLEEP WITH SIMBA MATTRESS- THE REVIEW

A BETTER NIGHTS SLEEP WITH SIMBA MATTRESS- THE REVIEW

Lets talk SLEEP! It’s not our strongest point in this household, we all want that real creme de la creme of sleep but we just aren’t quite achieving it . If it’s not a child waking up in the night it’s from the mattress that just isn’t doing it’s job. Now I can’t change the first as unfortunately I have a child we joined the ‘No Sleep Club’ from day one but I can change the latter.

HOW I REVAMPED MY SONS BOX ROOM OF DOOM

HOW I REVAMPED MY SONS BOX ROOM OF DOOM

At the end of October I shared with you my Room revamp ideas for the box Bedroom which is my sons room. Chester is a 9 year old boy who has Autism with sensory and sleep issues so this room had to deliver in so many aspects. It’s not a room that particularly filled me with joy.

Let’s dive in…. or should I say squeeze as it is the box room after all.

Working with What You’ve Got.

When we moved into our home this room already had fitted wardrobes, I’m not going to lie these aren’t the most attractive thing in the room but my gosh they are handy. They store away so many toys and items we wanted to clear out of the room to keep it a calm and a comfortable space for Chester. Keeping this room clutter free was high up on the list mainly because of the lack of space.

 

 

Chester was very much a part of the process in choosing the colours and design of his room. He has high anxiety so change can be a real problem, taking that into consideration we let him be part of the revamp to keep his anxiety to a minimum. Read more
