The fairy reward box

I’m really excited to share a lovely product we received recently from  The Reward Box . I was recently approached by the lovely team from the reward box, to see if “mini” would like one of their boxes. Of course we said yes & much to “mini’s” delight we received our little fairy box in the post recently.


I was excited to see this little box in person,as i’d admired it online & I loved the idea of a reward box, especially as it is designed to grow with your child as it is suitable for ages 18 months to 5 years plus. We have used sticker reward charts in the past, but the idea of an interactive reusable reward box really appealed. So what do you get with the reward box? The box itself comes inside a lovely little presentation box, making it a perfect gift. Included in the box, is the fairy box itself, 20 wooden stars in a pretty little organza bag, and some promise vouchers, which you personalise for you child.


We choose the fairy box, but there is also the pirate version available. The box is made of wood and painted in a pale pink and white colour scheme with pink poka dots.  It has a strong little door and easy to use latch, so easy for little ones to use. It has a slot in the roof to pop in the Silver wooden star reward tokens.


I knew “Mini” would love how much more interactive this little box is rather than a flat sticker chart and I was right. She was super excited to get this and it has taken pride of place on her dresser beside her portrait of her bff bunny that her nannie made for her.

We haven’t used the box as a reward box yet, opting to use it more for imaginative play, so far its been a shop till, a post box and everything in between. “Mini” has had so much fun with it already and I know as she gets older she will continue to do so. (I am hoping to start introducing the reward system in the coming weeks).


We love our reward box and would highly recommend it as a gift or as a great way to reward good behaviour! If you fancy purchasing  your fairy box or pirate box you can here! To get 25% off your box use the code EARLYBIRD !

Bedroom make over

It’s hard to believe that we are in our house nearly a year already! It seems like only yesterday we bought it. Over the last year we have been slowly doing up the different rooms. 90% of the house is finished or nearly finished with only really the bathroom to do up in the coming year. One of the rooms we didn’t really give any attention to was our bedroom, the only thing we did to it when we moved in was paint it cream. I wanted a blank canvas of a room to work with, sick of the”feature” walls we had in our previous bedrooms, as they always tied me to a particular colour for bedding etc. I wanted a fresh, bright space for our new room, especially as its much smaller than our previous bedroom. So that’s how our bedroom was left last year, cream and plain. That was until recently…


Recently Hillary’s offered a number of blogger’s including myself the chance to make over a room in our homes and I choose my bedroom. You can have a look at everyone’s make over here.  I still wanted to keep the light and calm palette but wanted to add some warmth to the room. I love copper and wanted to add some accessories in this colour, so opted for some photo frames, a few little candle holders and a beautiful heart decoration. I added some wall art and some fairy lights, as well as a little led candle lantern.


To finish it off I hand painted some copper spots to the top of the wall above our bed & purchased some new bedding to tie it all together. I’m really pleased with how it turned out, such a cosy, relaxing space.
