How to Match a Rug with the Floor | Interior Design*

Matching a rug with your floor is very important. It not only ensures the style of the rug looks great and works with your current d├ęcor, it also avoids buying a rug that could be too slippery or cause you to trip.
Furthermore, as flooring comes in many styles and colours, you want to choose a rug that compliments this rather than detracting from it. So, there are few things worth considering before you buy a new rug, and your current flooring is one of the most important.
The infographic below from Land of Rugs provides tips for choosing a rug for all the most popular floor types. From laminate to hardwood to tiles to carpets, you’ll find all the information you need to choose a rug that matches your flooring.
This includes how to decide on what colour and pattern works best with your flooring, along with determining the most suitable textures and styles. They’ve covered all the popular types of floors, so you should be able to buy that perfect rug for any type - great for choosing a variety of rugs for throughout the house!

Get To Know The Act | Stasia Buckle | Backhaus&Co Comedy

Comedy is a funny thing, literally. It cheers us up on dark days. It's a perfect addition to a date night or night in with the girls. Watching a show live however is a whole new experience. When you are sitting with your friends or partner watching it in the comfort of your own home it's great. You laugh, watch the show and probably enjoy it along with a Chinese takeaway.

A live show however is vibrant, the laughs around the room encase you in positivity and endorphins. As I have mentioned before I'm a regular now at Backhaus&Co's comedy night. It is hosted by Michael Dryburgh, there have been two so far and they haven't disappointed. His choice of acts are spot on and the room is always full of laughter. There is another one on Tuesday 10th April. The acts this month are Adele Cliff, Ben Hanlin, Chris Norton Walker and Stasia Buckle. I was lucky enough to interview Stasia Buckle to find out more about her and her comedy career - see below.

Ideal Dresses from Dresshopau*

I love dresses, they really suit my figure and just makes me feel like I am dressed up and ready to party. A lot of my old dresses I have given to charity or threw away so I'm really on the hunt to get some more and fill my wardrobe back out. I want to look at different styles and colours and really try to come out of my comfort zone with dresses. I always go for comfortable and plain. I've been looking around and found Dresshopau. They have such an amazing range for inspiration.

West Orchards Canteen Launch | Chopstix

I don't go out to eat as often as I would like now, but I'm making it my plan to start this year to try new places and new food. I always go to the same places and have the same thing. So boring, I need something fresh and new! Coventry is really up and coming with a lot of stuff as of late. Due to being named City of Culture I feel we will have a lot more in store and I will be blogging about it for sure!

Seven & Eight Month Update | Lily

I know I say this every time I do an update but she has changed so much the last two months it is crazy. Like she's turning into a little person who laughs at certain things and knows what she likes. She's gone through leaps and bounds recently and more than I can deal with. I want my tiny baby back. She seems to have come out of the tiny baby stuff completely especially in these 4 areas.

Bella Italia Day Date | Coventry

I haven't been out to a restaurant in a while properly as having a baby can sometimes stop you going out as much. I don't mind it at all it just makes when I do go out even more special. I chose this time and went for Bella Italia as it's something different and you can't beat Italian food although a close second for me if definitely Mexican. We were seated immediately pretty much as soon as we walked through the door which is really good, it was a Sunday though, so wasn't as busy. I find on a Sunday everything is smoother and the staff seem happier as they are not rushed off their feet.
