[AD] LIFESTYLE: HOW TO UPDATE YOUR GARDEN ON A BUDGET



With summer underway I thought i'd share a few ways you can update your garden on a budget. We don't have a garden right now as we live in an apartment but we love to chill in our parents gardens. Sometimes it's nice to add a few little bits to your garden to spruce it up a little and bring it back to life after the cold winter months. I thought i'd find some affordable but effective ways to update your outdoor space. 

First up look at updating your garden furniture! This doesn't have to mean buying new, you could paint your existing furniture. A fresh lick of paint will make it look brand new, you can buy so many different colours of garden paint too! If you are in the market for a new garden set then why not look at building your own Pallet garden furniture. It's super simple and easy to do and so effective. Pop a few throws and cushions on and your good to go.. 

That brings me onto my next thing, Cushions! Cushions are a super easy and cheap way to add a pop of colour to your garden. You can get proper outdoor cushions but I find normal cushions are just as effective and cheaper too! Just remember to take them inside or pop them away incase it rains. 

Lighting is another super easy way to update your garden. These outdoor LED decking lights from lightsupplier.co.uk are fab. They can update drab decking in the flick of a switch and much cheaper than replacing all of your decking. 

I also think a few hanging lights around your patio area can brighten up a garden, especially on those warm summer nights when you spend more evenings outside. 

Colour! Adding pops of colour can be super easy but effective. Like I mentioned above using cushions, throws and other soft furnishings can really stand out. Try painting your plant pots or buy some new ornaments. These are really affordable ways to freshen up the garden this summer.

[AD- GIFTED]FASHION: MY FAVOURITE NECKLACES FROM DAY TO NIGHT


I go through phases with jewellery, I either wear it all the time or I don't wear it at all. At the moment I have a few pieces that I literally wear ever single day! I have a gorgeous bracelet that was handmade by a close friend of mine, which is a pretty little charm bracelet. I also have two necklaces from the new Daisy London Estee Lalonde range. They are perfect for everyday but are great for night time too! They are super simple and pretty so you can wear them with everything! 

I have the Estee Lalonde T-bar necklace which is really on trend right now. The T-bar has a really pretty detail on it which is lovely. I have this in Gold but it also comes in Silver. It also comes in a bracelet and earrings! I love this and wear it on it's own or sometimes I like to layer it with my Estee Lalonde Sunburst chain necklace, this is a short necklace and again it looks fab on it's own. I've been wearing them both layered together pretty much all day everyday! 

I recently wore them both on a night out with a pretty little black dress and also to a wedding with a smart Navy dress. They are so pretty and delicate but just add that little something to an outfit without being too much! But they are pretty and simple enough to wear everyday with any outfit! I've had loads of compliments and people asking wear my necklaces are from. 

Do you wear alot of jewellery and do you have pieces that you wear every single day? Or like me do you wear them from Day to Night? 

The Estee Lalonde range is over on the Daisy London website, check it out! I love the whole collection it's right up my street!!
